Judges Comments

All the finalists have been able to find their own unique voice within this vast realm of illustration. It is exceedingly difficult to do that nowadays. Finding this is almost more important than the content itself in my opinion.
Justin Holt
Daniel has a great sense of architectural design and composition. I liked the way my eye was drawn to the main thing he was trying to emphasize. He also has a great sense of showing scale and a great understanding of lighting.he has a very interesting and simplistic way of using his brushes but at the same time suggesting great detail.
Gino Acevedo

Lewis Wagstaff

Voted by the general public using our Facebook Gallery voting system.

My name is Lewis Wagstaff and I am currently finishing my Honours year in Computer Arts at Abertay University, Dundee. I have a keen interest in all aspects of design, especially concept art and graphic design. I like to experiment visually, merging the two fields to generate better final pieces and compositions. I have always been intrigued with great design and constantly strive to improve not only my design, but my creative mentality to devise new and original ideas.
