Worlds End Colouring Book Drawing Competition...


Hi Guys,

Well the extended deadline to the “Worlds End” Colouring Book Drawing Competition is now past and I can announce the winners of the three categories. Things are rather hectic here at the moment, so finding time to sit and look through all the entries and choose the three winners has proven to be a massive task. At last, however I have managed to do so and think the winners have each done a bang up job.

The winners will see their work in print here at the Keep.

This New Competition was open to three groups:

  • Professional
  • Semi Professional
  • Amateur

The Project, a brand new Worlds End Colouring Book, will be launching later this year to coincide with the launch of the Worlds End Graphic Novel – Volume One – Riders on the Storm published by Wizards Keep.

Three pages have been left open for the three winners to fill the spaces.

The Competition required you guys to draw a black and white line drawing of one, or more, of the Worlds End Characters, examples of which could be found here at the

Worlds End Gallery

Well without further ado here are the winners names, followed by each of the winning entries:

Winner - Professional Section: Dave Windett

Winner - Semi-Professional Section: Paul Eldrige

Winner - Amateur Section: Lauren Hanratty

I would also like to thank everyone else who entered and who also made it difficult to choose the winners. We were due to announce the winners on Saturday April 18th, but work schedules and a large number of late entries meant that I was unable to give the entries sufficient time to be properly looked at in the time frame, hence the slight delay.

That said, I am glad I chose not to just skim the entries and gave each one equal time and opportunity to persuade my judgement.

The response was great and the draughtsmanship shown was equal to this.

Thanks again to all that entered and we will run another competition very, very soon.

Until next time have fun!

Hi Nazish,

Yes there were some great entries, but these three I liked the best.

All three captured something about my characters, just right.

Lauren caught the scene perfectly and is one to watch out for, in my humble opinion.

I'll pass on your kind thoughts to all three winners.

I am sure they will be over the moon.

Thanks for dropping by again.
