Persona 4 contest winners revealed!

Oognoko calls his entry “Shadow of Adam”. Which explains … well, nothing really. But it’s cool.

Excellent art work on Papa Legba, by proxybypass. We can’t help but wonder if this was Colonel Sanders’ worst nightmare. Not that it’s really that chicken-y, but seeing this in one’s sleep would be rough on anyone, right?

As this entry, titled “Gemini”, makes clear, slightlysalted has one thing on his mind … and we’d like to get it out of his mind and onto film.

Dezmonster’s entry is the Time Vizard, which represents “all the stuff in our past we lock away and want to forget and all the mistakes we wish we could fix.” You know, like that time at band camp when you let Becky Shaeffer have the last hot wing and she still didn’t let you get to second base. Man, that day sucked! You know, important stuff like that. 

The Judger eats your sins, which fuel his flame. Then he acts out the sins. So, redwolfman, if you farted in a swimming pool, would the flame stay lit?

At first, we were actually confused by bariscorpio’s entry Calligraph. Given the description that it “appears to have otter-like features as well (whiskers, rudder-like tail, webbed feet), so he may be a gorram furry. Rages at anything trivial, gets upset over unimportant details & flaws, refuses to look at the big picture", we thought it might have been an old intern we haven’t seen in awhile.

XCrimson’s HearNoEvil is actually inspired by that image of three monkeys who see, hear, and speak no evil. We suspect she hears badly because of those spiky earmuffs, but whatever. A fire elemental, she wears a blue shirt that represents an “ice queen” whose memory haunts her creator to this day. Oh, burn!

We’re going to go out on a limb here and guess that kingofspades isn’t a font designer at his day job. And also that his creation Ethaneus Brute has trouble finding shoes that fit.

User eju’s entry Ankou is inspired by Breton mythology. Which does not, in fact, refer to mythology made up by our own Brett Elston. Tough break, B-money.

Drphoenix192 originally based Regore on himself, but added a few bits here and there. Like the six-pack abs, for example.

Derrderr420 never got his cheetos.

Cariku’s monkey king can wear real clothes. No word on a throwing poop power.

Zymn’s entry claims that this baby is ugly. We concur.

    So can I claim my prize?
  • zymn - December 24, 2008 10:10 p.m.

    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.
  • Schizo - December 24, 2008 7:53 a.m.

    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.
