X-Blades Art Contest Winners Announced

Back in June SouthPeak Games, Gaijin Entertainment and TopWare Interactive kicked off an extravagant X-Blades art contest offering a prize pool totaling $10,000. Well the three top winners have finally been announced. Looking at the X-Blades website, it appears the winners were actually unveiled there at the end of October, but SouthPeak only just made the official announcement today. So here it is…

Konrad Beiskammer of Austria took home the $3,000 grand prize for the beautiful piece of art pictured below. Toshinori Kihara of Japan and Jasmine Kong of Canada won the respective runners-up prizes of $2,000 and $1,000. Visit the X-Blades website and click the Fanart heading in the right sidebar to view the three winning pieces and other works of fan art. Congratulations to all the winners, job well done!
