loadtoberJ 2021 has wrapped up and the results are in! Well, actually it was announced on stream a while ago, but now it’s really official!
Quick recap what this whole loadtoberJ thing even is: Basically it’s about taking the daily prompt from Inktober, and then -ifying it in some way.
Here are the 5 categories and their prize winners!
MOST CREATIVE: MarcMansfield with “Tick”
The ‘Most Creative’ award goes to MarcMansfield for this unsettling video as he’s definitely thinking outside the box (and possibly outside my window) and I’m not just awarding Marc the prize because I’m semi-worried for my life.
At the end of the video there’s a flash of suspicious numbers..
.. and typing them into Google maps as coordinates points to a place called Egg Lake Campground, which.. I’m now realizing probably doesn’t mean anything to you if you aren’t watching the streams because it’s an inside yolk.
Also this lake sorta looks like a from space, so bonus points for that.
FUNNIEST: Jamamp with “Sour”
MY FAVOURITE: Grinzpilz with “Knot”
It was hard to choose my favourite. I mean, I definitely knew Grinzpilz drew my favourite entry, but it was hard pinpointing exactly which one of his many amazing entries was the one to take the crown.
I think I made the right decision with his ‘Knot’ entry because turning the into the earbuds is something I would never have thought up myself in a million years. See all the other entries here.
EXOCOMICS' FAVOURITE: Quiet_Artist with “Crystal”
Exocomics awarded Quiet_Artist the prize of being her favourite! Now to pass the mic over to her:
“I like this one because crystals are so hard to draw but quiet artist nailed it. The loadj is really well integrated into the crystal structure too. Love the sparkle on the eye!" - Li aka Exocomics
A FOR EFFORT: Psycho “Finbean” Manatee
Honestly everyone who participated in loadtoberJ deserves to get this award, but that would be crazy because I’d have to send out like a hundred prints and stickers to people and the shipping expenses alone would bankrupt me…
… and that’s a wrap for the prizes! To the winners: expect your exclusive signed art print and stickers in the mail soon(er or later)! I mean it’s being sent from New Zealand and it’s already Christmas time, so best of luck it shows up this year!
And to everyone else: thank you very much for participating in the second ever loadtoberJ! Thank you for making it what it is! Because if it weren’t for all of you and your amazing submissions, loadtoberJ would just be me drawing loadJ entries under anonymous pseudonyms while quietly sobbing to myself…
… and I’d still lose to Grinzpilz because there’s no stopping that guy.
