The prize goes to Peter Stockbridge of Wellesbourne Warwick for his beautiful rendering of the "Vampire boy " chibi.
The judges were particularly impressed with his use of perspective and felt that his colour choices were in keeping with the subject.
A very atmospheric picture. Spookily well done Peter and a hearty thanks for " scaring" our Chibi designer into extra practice.
Peter wins a " Mater Chibi Manga " set, created for Derwent by professional Manga Artist Hayden "Dock" Scott-Baron"
