Ayumi gives a free hand to artists' fantasies!

"X-Blades"- Fan Art competition with gigantic artistic feedback


Karlsruhe, October 31st 2008 - The Jury of the“X-Blades” Fan Art Competition (prizes up to 10,000 dollars), couldn't believe their eyes when they looked at the entries. The call we put out to design artistic outfits for Ayumi, the heroine of the Anime action game, was answered from all over the world... and how! We got stacks of brilliant artistic interpretations from places like North America, Japan and of course Europe!

At the end of October, the three winners were selected - and what a task that was! 3,000, 2,000 and 1,000 dollars were awarded to the 1st 2nd and 3rd places. First place goes to Konrad Beiskammer from Austria followed by Toshinori Kihara from Japan and Jasmine Kong from Canada.

Of course there were other prizes too - money and great gifts were awarded to the best runners-up - AND most of the entries will be printed in a high-quality "X-Blades" artbook, which will include the Royal Edition. Take a look at samples of the work of art in the fanart area at www.x-blades.com.
