The votes are in, the scores have been tallied, and we are ready to share the winning entries for the “RIFT: Concept Weapons and Cloaks!” contest. Thank you all for participating; it was a great turn out, and many of you came up with amazing entries. If your entry wasn’t selected, don’t despair! Many of the entries were a hair away from winning, so you should definitely try again when we run our next Concept Art Contest.
Here are a few messages from some of our judges:
Sven B: As Lead Concept Artist on RIFT I would like to thank everyone who participated in our first Concept Art Contest! I was surprised by the enthusiasm and number of submissions we received. All of us who were involved in the judging had a great time going through all of the great ideas that were submitted. I love seeing the ideas players have and how close, or different, they are from our own. I honestly can’t wait to see everyone’s ideas in the next Concept Art Contest!
Marigold: Thank you for your participation in our first RIFT concept competition! It is very motivating as developers to see this kind of art involvement from the community. Based on this contest it seems we have a lot of artistically creative and talented players. I really had a good time going through the ideas and designs presented to us. There was a lot of effort put into them, and I was pleasantly surprised by the volume of entries we received. I can’t wait for the 3D models to be created and see them brought to life in the RIFT world!
So without further ado, let’s get on to the winners:
Thanks again for participating, and congrats!
