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!

Seriously, though. When are we going to get a winner? I want a t-shirt!
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.. :/
