It’s with great excitement that we announce the winners of the Kasai SALIENT art contest!
Firstly, let’s begin with the artwork we received!
We love the ties into Kasai’s extended backstory here! The bright and beautiful colors are very eye-catching, and the inclusion of Kasai’s other friends makes us rather emotional.
This piece is absolutely adorable, and it really reminds us of Kasai’s growth as an UTAU as she looks back at her past self, so very far away now. The art style is super duper unique, and the colors and composition are really eye-catching!
We love the vibes on this piece, so sweet and soft! The cloud wings are such an adorable touch as Kasai stands against the skyline. You can see the newfound freedom and joy in her eyes as she stands atop her dark past. A bright, happy future awaits her here, bright as the shimmering sky above!
This piece brings us such peace! It’s such warm, calming artwork that brings out the collected, heartfelt side of Kasai. Seeing this side of her warms our hearts in a way we can’t quite describe!
Ceren:“Ok, I’ve got to say, it’s incredibly heartwarming to receive work from these recognizable names. I’m pretty stand-offish and shy, but I pay really close attention to who has given love to our girls over the years. It brings me immense joy that every person who submitted an entry is a name I recognize, and I just want to let you all know how much I appreciate all your support for so, so long now. Every single entry is so beautiful.“
And the results…
The goal of our contest was to spread some love, which is why we wanted to give 3 winners prizes. Depending on how many entries we received, our original intent was to add more winners as we reached a certain number of submissions. Because of this, and because, in all honesty, the goal of this contest was to spread some love, we have decided to announce all four entries as our winners, and all will be receiving a physical Kasai SALIENT box!
Our top three placements will receive an additional Kasai chibi button with their prizes. Placements were decided by several people. We had a super hard time since we loved all the entries, so it was incredibly difficult!
1st Place: @SherbetBomb42!
2nd Place: @eggsinarow
3rd Place: princeofarkham/StormiLove!
4th Place: @alex21346587
As promised, prizes will be shipped out in early July. We are currently working on the finishing touches and will be in contact with our winners over the next few days. Thank you all so much for your entries, we are truly humbled by your love and support! Please be on the lookout for an email from STUDIO OGIEN in the next few days to confirm addresses and shipping time frames that work best for you.
