First Annual Iddy the Lich Art Contest

Last month, I announced an art contest and I had no idea what to expect in terms of a response. I asked for submissions on art depicting the blog’s official mascot, Iddy the Lich. Throughout the month of September, I was pleasantly surprised to receive eight entries into the contest. As I mentioned, there will be three winners; each winner will received a custom The Id DM dice bag created by Dragon Chow.

The winners will be decided by three voting processes. The first is quite simple, I’m going to select my favorite. The second will be a free-for-all, open-to-the-public voting period that will begin today and conclude next Monday, October 15th. The third will be a private vote from each of the eight artists who submitted an entry (and they cannot vote for their own entry).

Before displaying the entries, I want to thank each artist for sending me their rendition of Iddy the Lich. I was happy to receive each entry throughout the month of September; it always brightened my day when a new entry arrived in my inbox!

Please consume the Iddy the Lich entries and vote for your favorite. Also, please investigate the talents of each artist through their website or Twitter feed – I have included the links below.

Readers, please use the poll below to cast your vote! Artist, please send me an email with your vote – and remember –  you cannot vote for your own creation. I will now retire to my secret chamber and perform an elaborate ritual to determine my vote.

The polls are open for one week. Please return next week to find out the results.
