(Due to unfortunate internet issues with Hannah and me leaving to go camping the morning the contest voting began, I didn’t get Hannah’s entries until a few days later, but isn’t this drawing of Kaden awesome?!)

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the contest and those who voted! I can’t wait to do it again! If you want to see the other entries in the contest, head over to the Ilyon Chronicles fan art page.
