Simple Yet Complex Contest Winner

Journal Entry: Mon May 25, 2015, 1:06 PM

Hi everyone,

I am happy to announce that we finally got the public voting results
for the, Simple Yet Complex, group contest.  
Every participant did a magnificent job, not only in the modeling,
texturing and rendering of their artworks, but most importantly
in interpreting the somewhat subjective theme.
Each one of them gave it their own special twist,
interpretation and meaning, and frankly,
we couldn’t have asked for better results.

Our contest winner is the very creative and accomplished 3D artist,
with her magnificent artwork titled:
It’s Complicated.

It's Complicated -- My Second Daily Deviation! by recycledrelatives

We encourage everyone to check out her gallery,
her fractal works are simply magnificent,
they burst with color, shape and form;
they're a true delight for the senses.

Here are a few examples of her magnificent works:

Quick Dudley Only by recycledrelatives

Dirt and Sunshine by recycledrelatives

Fractal Flower Close Up by recycledrelatives

Mistakes - Chain 00 Pong 121 by recycledrelatives

Smooth Snakeskin Surf by recycledrelatives

Suspicion - Pong 89 by recycledrelatives

If They Matter  -  Pong 87 by recycledrelatives

In 2nd place we have the very meaningful
and spooky artwork, Chernobyl Swings,
by newdeal666

Chernobyl Swings by newdeal666

In 3rd place we have the thought provoking artwork
of logomachine,
aptly named, Simple Yet Complex

Simple yet Complex by logomachine

Congratulations to our winner and two runner ups
for their outstanding works!

Thanks to all of the contestants for participating in the contest,
and to all of those of you who took the time to vote.
