Basically, you made judging this really really hard. Luckily, we were able to pass that job over to Becky herself! Here’s what she had to say about your entries:
They say writing books is hard, but choosing a winner here was a close second. As somebody who’s spent a lifetime wrapped up in fandom, I see fanart as the hugest compliment, and I’m still blown away by the creativity on display here. Thank you for sharing your talent, effort, and imagination. Every entry made me smile, and you guys made my job incredibly difficult. A huge round of applause to all of you.
So, without further ado it’s time to announce the winner!
You will get a character named after you in Record of a Spaceborn Few, and be among the first in the world to read it. While you wait for your proof to arrive you also get £100 worth of books!
The runners up will also receive Record of a Spaceborn Few proofs and £100 worth of books. Huge congratulations to:
And special mentions to the entries below. Becky saw what you did there, and she liked it!
‘Tishsa, because I recognized it immediately and was totally delighted.’
‘Sissix and the elderly Aandrisk, because I’m so stoked that somebody chose that scene.’
‘Sidra, because she’s wrapped in her tattoo, and I love that to bits.’
Though the competition is now over we always love to see fan art, so do tweet anything you create @Hodderscape and we’ll retweet at warp speed with a huge grin on our faces.
