    The one in the header won gold, but I think the first Silver one was a lot better :/

    Also that Wii U one…just…just perfect.

    The Smash Bros and Wii U one would have been better candidates for first place, however I can still see the charm of the winners drawing. That being said, all these are truly amazing!

    I don’t know about the first place being so worthy.. those others sure were great.

  • richa

    ugh I dont find mine the best, but it is better than the number one =.=

    they did a voting system, but its not a good system, the people with the most followers are more likely to win, a drawing contest should be completely based on how good the art is.

    like the one with the turtles is reaaaly good but didn’t even win bronse
