1st Place

Burning Armadillo – @burningarmadillo

Scott says: Burning Armadillo really nailed the fantasy of this challenge. I can imagine this mutant monster being sent into a ring and tearing the crap out of the other monsters. It has a lot of neat elements and unconventional animal choices so it’s getting points for originality. The idea of a chimera is pretty common, but zebra/wolf/shark? That’s pretty awesome. Kinda random, but it works! The style of execution is nice and clear. Great job!

Prize – A Wacom One Creative Pen Display, an Original Sculpt by Scott of their Winning Design, Scott Flanders Signed Monster Print, and the Figure, Portrait, and Anatomy courses.

Winner of Feb 2020 Proko Art Challenge!

2nd Place

Kingsley Clutten – @kingsleyclutten

Scott says: Kingsley’s creature is probably the best designed in the challenge. There’s a repeated shape language but it’s not overdone. You’ve got changes in the rhythms throughout the piece. It also has really nice color harmonies going on. Awesome piece!

Prize – A Wacom Intuos Small Bluetooth tablet, Scott Flanders Signed Monster Print and a choice of 1 Proko Course.

Runner-up of Feb 2020 Proko Art Challenge!

Joe – @joewatsonillustration

Scott says: I love the way Joe uses color in his piece. It’s a clever, fun character with great presentation. The hatch marks and shadow shapes are really strong as well. What a great character.
