Edit: Thanks for all the kind words all. What a great few days. Coincidentally, at the time I made this post I hadn't known that Irene Gallo had posted the Undertaker on her blog in the image attached to the post about the competition. Which really made this something special for me, just being on the same page as posts with Tor Books artists. So exciting.
Here's the images that made it in for those that asked.
Groff: This cloud is pretty comfy. We will see.
Thanks again everyone
Let me start off with a WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
....and compose myself....
When I came to CCAD I only had one goal after freshman year, and that was to get something into this student competition for Society of Illustrators. Man, is it a good feeling to have gotten two pieces in, The Undertaker and Lincoln's Secret Letters. I understand that judging is more of a matter of taste on the judges panel, and the best piece that I may think will get out in the first round, but as a general feeling towards this, I feel like I've been assured at least a shot in the illustration world.
Holy hell I'm excited right now. Have to get back to work on an assignment I'm way behind on, but be sure to check out everything that made it into the show this year.
