  1. I am dissapoint . Blood mask should have only 1 eye as we all know . How can the blood mask with two eye sockets take place 1 ? I DEMAND TRIBULATION !

    And honestly i wonder how comes the art with Meng Hao sealing the tribulation thunder didn’t make it in top 5 ? I think that is by far the best one with body a bit indistinct and surroundings shadowy and only tribulation clouds and sealing hand perfectly visible .

  2. These are all fantastic!

    One thing to consider for the next time voting happens. I noticed all the winners submitted digital drawings. There were some absolutely fantastic non-digital works submitted as well. However, I’m guessing that the voting method doesn’t favor them since they lack the “pop” of digital works, especially when scrolling through a large voting list – your eyes will be more easily drawn to the digital works.

    I don’t have a solution for this, or maybe people won’t see this as a need. But, whatever. (And please don’t mistake this for saying that the winners are bad – all of them deserve to win!)

    1. You are either not seeing the pinky, which is parallel to his clothes. Or the thumb, which is kinda strange, but it’s on the back, with a different color since the light illuminates it directly, while the other 4 fingers are in the shadows.

    2. well whoever designed it, didn’t wanted to design that small finger, becuase it would be hard to see ;/

      also that art where meng hao got a sword, i never heard of meng hao using long sword ^ ^

  3. now to have another art contest for chapter 600…
    scene: violent sea giants crushing stuff——mastiff vs lord fifth——–heavenly tribulation MKII———neo demons filling the sky
    characters: meng hao’s 7 soul—–meng hao meeting his fiance——mang hao and ke yunhai——zhi whatever holding meng haos hand——-meng hao taking xu qing——-cloud vs sephiroth

    BATTLE START-OO!!!!!

  4. lol all the winners got only 2 types of art , pff

    i thought some one would at least gonna make one about meng vs tribulation or when he was devouring (forgot what it was) blood imortal legacy trial, or the giant patriarch reliance (turtle form), or when pil demon accepted him as a legacy apprentice, or when he showed his all elements, or when he made lightning soul. well at least something different. but all i see, is that most ppl only thought about meng hao and his blood mastif, T_T

  5. Awesome! Congratulations for all the artists and especially to the winners this time. I hope you all keep working on your drawing abilities, you guys are all awesome!

    And many thanks to DB, who arranged this competition. It was very entertaining to see all those different perspectives of ISSTH in those drawings. Hope you keep doing more contests like this.

    Anyway, congrats to all!
