Persona 4 contest winners revealed!

From TheSuburbiaRuins comes this poetically created entry called “The Unspoken”, described as “the broken, sad part of the soul who does not like to speak up and let's all fall behind it making it hide deep from the world and quiet.”

JoeMasturbaby delivered this musical entry, which may or may not be recycled from down time spent in study hall.

Joe Masturbaby’s second entry is this unnamed ghoul, which grows its skin back every night after the daylight melts it off.

tysr36 believes this critter lives in his head. We’ll describe it with the same puzzling sentence he did: “my persona is a stick figure with a shotgun that knows how to SHOOP DA WHOOP”. 

They get better than this entry from SaltyChuck, we swear.

And the winner of the “ghostly succubus we’d still be interested in dating” award goes to Lilikka.

We would almost guarantee that this isn’t a real picture of rabbit221. But if it is, rabbit, please call us. You’re our hero.


We’d ask Beku 121 why exactly so many of you have hot chicks embedded in your subconscious, but it’s not really a problem for us.

ssj4raditz has a goofy user name, but it’s tough to fault his LEGO skills. Unless this was supposed to be a Volkswagon beetle.

bob8914 gives us this entry, explaining that TalkRadar character Bon Soi, the French wrestler, would make a perfect persona if given a lancer from Gears of War.

TrigunGunner has probably seen the Predator movies. We’re guessing.

Punkmetalimage explains that this persona is the opposite of his bearded, burly real world self. Remember that next time you flirt with a sexy cat babe in an MMO.

According to dmgkevin, Atropos is inspired by the Greek character who cuts the thread of a person’s life, bringing about their death. Yeah, our thread would need scissors that big too. We’re just hung, you know? 

If JonRedfield’s mind is strong enough to blindfold his demon form and chain it to a cross, we’re thinking we should stay out of it.

    haha, i'm listed on the very bottom. kinda sad, but, hey. i'm listed. i suppose i shoulda just cut the baby out of the page and just showed that, but i didn't have great expectations for it anyways.
  • Phoenix_Gamma - December 24, 2008 9:06 p.m. got my screenname wrong, but whatever, it's just an underscore :P I was really happy to see I came in second. I didn't think I had a chance, and it's been a real crappy day at work (on Christmas!) so thanks for that. Also, rad entry, FalconMbuster. I'm into that whole...abstract thing you've got there. I knew the potato thing would totally seal the deal for you, man. Good work.
  • SaltyChuck - December 24, 2008 7:57 p.m.

    Hey, at least mine was featured as the template!
  • ssj4raditz - December 24, 2008 7:34 p.m.

    Hey, congratulations to the winners!
  • FalconMbuster - December 24, 2008 7:34 p.m.

    PhoenixGamma's is awesome. Surprised that potato got me the win! I might try and do a better one. Only had a vegetable skinning knife to work with.
  • TrigunGunner - December 24, 2008 7:28 p.m.

    no I've never seen the predator movies, but I see where you got that idea
  • punkmetalmage - December 24, 2008 5:58 p.m.

    damn, they even got my name wrong /: If I knew it was going to judged based on who closely we got to the art style of P4, I would've done a completely different character. Oh well, I hope you guys have another art contest like this. Guess, I'll have to pick this up at the store.

    Not to be an ass but is it just me or does suburbia ruins' drawing look an awfully lot like Greg "Craola" Simkins' painting
  • a_citizen - December 24, 2008 7:17 a.m.

    cuhraap. double post. sorry guyz
  • XCrimson - December 24, 2008 4:45 a.m.

    I knew I didn't stand a chance in this contest XD Though, if another contest like this shows up that catches my interest, I'll definitely go for humor over seriousness for my drawing. Congrats to the winners!
  • purple_omlet - December 24, 2008 3:09 a.m.

    holy crap! mine made it into the top 4! for a drawing on notebook paper it was pretty damn good. to bad i didn't win anything... but it's great to just be a participant, and i'm deffinately being in more contests. P.S.- Go TalkRadar!
  • lucashintz - December 23, 2008 10:51 p.m.

    I really wanted to win this, tis a shame I cant draw though.
  • EricBratcher - January 13, 2009 7:53 p.m.

    Actually, SuburbiaRuins, I think the word you're looking for is "tracing", not "inspiration". But you did a decent job of replicating the artwork, I'll grant you that. Sorry 'bout the name typos. It's sometimes ahrd to tell which bits of punctuation and so on are intentional and which are required by the software's naming rules (such as underscores)
  • zymn - December 29, 2008 2:10 p.m.

    you must dive into a river full of flesh-eating pihranas and swim to the bottom into a cave inhabited by blood-sucking bats. then, you must make your way through the cave. your final test will be to sit and watch Barney & Friends for an entire episode. THEN you get your prize. :D
  • TrigunGunner - December 24, 2008 7:33 p.m.

    Oh well, let me know next time an art contest comes around.
  • kingofspades94 - December 24, 2008 5:24 p.m.

    All is forgiven!
  • a_citizen - December 24, 2008 4:34 p.m.

    hey, sorry bro. i was joking, but yeah. there needs to be a delete thingy for tha comments, i felt kinda bd after i posted it... sowwy
  • kingofspades94 - December 24, 2008 3:13 p.m.

    Hey a_citizen, that um... hurt... But i never said i was an artist. I was gifted with hands of an author, not an artist.
  • TheSuburbiaRuins - December 24, 2008 3:05 p.m.

    Well yeah fuck face it's called inspiration.
