The results are in, but before I get to that, I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in the contest! It was a great experience, and very enlightening too. I didn't figure there would be that much flexibility building off of my sketches, but I was amazed to find just how much creativity and originality some of you were able to inject into them. I'm astounded how many of you were able to take what I gave you and make it so uniquely your own. It's amazing how much of a wonderful learning experience it's been for me. One thing's for sure, though; you can bet I'll be doing this again sometime when I've built up enough of a backlog again.
And now, the part you've all been waiting for... The results! You all made this one hard on me. Very hard. I put the poll out there, and even that came out surprisingly close. So close, in fact, there was even a tie...
