Mythical Creatures Semi-Finalists!

Fri Aug 24, 2012, 11:33 AM
We challenged everyone to come up with a mythical creature design featuring fantastical beasts renowned in folklore and myth. You gave us thousands of awesome designs with unicorns, dragons, monsters, and more, which were then voted on by the deviantART community. The results are epic -- even legendary! We've calculated the votes and now we're ready to present the 100 most-voted-for designs! From these designs our judges damphyr, IreneAdler76, and renonevada will narrow it down and pick the two Finalists. Each Finalist will be awarded $1,500 cash and receive 20 T-Shirts with their design printed on them to give away to friends and family. Plus, both T-Shirts will be available for purchase in the deviantART T-Shirts & Gear Shop.

And now, we present the Semi-Finalists for the Mythical Creatures T-Shirt Design Challenge!

A quick note: These entries are the top 100 most-voted-for, qualified entries.  Some top-voted entries have been disqualified because they did not adhere to the rules or contained unlicensed third-party content.  Additionally, there were several designers who had multiple entries in the top 100 most-voted-for and, as stated in the Official Terms, only one design per designer is allowed to be in the Semi-Final judging round.  Where this occurred, the highest voted entry appears in this Semi-Finalist pool.

Congratulations to all the Semi-Finalists, and good luck in the final round!

Is it normal to take almost a year to decide a winner on Da's contest? I have never ever seen a contest that could take so long to be decided.. :/

Ooh wow mine got there too :D never got that far in a contest before ooh! Exciting to see the final results anyway!

Just wondering though, it still seems there are some entries that seem to be breaking the rules, especially the only 2 print areas rule (lots of people were certain wrap-around designs which would count as 3 areas would break this rule) and the colour limit one :O just wondering, cos there was a lot of confusion about these rules in the comments.

oh I think it's because the people chose them anyways :/ like, rules or not if people liked it a lot or the artist really shared it a lot people voted it up to the spot. But the judges I'm sure will only choose two from here that meet the rules :b lol

Yeah might be :0 was wondering it as I saw someone saying their entry got removed cos it was on too many print areas and then some still got in.

true that's kind of lame. I personally know I slightly went out of certain borders with mine but I also wrote that in the comments as for the printers to slightly modify the image to the correct guidelines to make it work. eh we'll see. lol

I was wondering about this too. Some of these entries seem to cover more than 3 print areas/go outside print area borders. Strange..

I think perhaps too many colors, or it stretched outside the printing regions..

Hey congratulations to all the semi-finalists!!!

......Thanks so much for giving me this idea DA! I Truly Appreciate It!...........Been making money selling my t-shirts already ($7,447.49 to date)!!
Good luck all finalists...sad they will only pic two places, but Hey, there will be more popular contests! Just go get get well...Popular and you can win too!
I'll be ending my contest entries with this one here at DA...I'm just not politically popular enough to even come close to placing in something like this, but it's cool! Good luck again to everyone!

i wish it wasnt a popularity contest either :/ thats what sucks about these contests. they dont give everyone a fair chance :/. all a popular user has to do is shove their thumb in a journal and BAM! instant top 100. The admins should consider a more fair way of voting. oh well! i guess Ill make a zazzle account and try my luck there!
