HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Louis the Child announced the winners of the #KR8atHome digital storytelling event. Mr. Sourabh Patil (IG @shinzooooooo) from Goa, India won the grand prize and will receive an autographed, one-of-a-kind LTC created drawing and a $300 cash prize. "I was shocked when I saw the Instagram notification that Louis the Child mentioned me in their Instagram story!" says Patil. The #KR8atHome paintONE Battle was a collaboration of Louis the Child and top digital avatar company Genies.com.
paintONE Battles is a competitive visual storytelling global sport where artists get twenty minutes to create a compelling digital art narrative, based on a random, two-word prompt: the "Little + Things" you appreciate in life right now in this locked down world. Louis the Child encouraged entries from both traditional and digital artists, so paintONE Battles received over 40 entries from all over the world, including traditional hand-drawn, watercolor, photobashing, and graphic design/special effects.
"We are floored by the creativity and artistic expression from all of the artists worldwide," says Freddy Kennett of Louis the Child. Robby Hauldren agreed: "We are talking next level skills. I was moved"!
The winning entry displayed a nostalgic, colorful rendering of a boy flying a kite, which was and is one of the little things Sourabh Patil enjoys. "After hearing Little Things, the first thing that came to my mind was flying kites, because as a child I was fascinated by kites, so that was my inspiration." The winning entry was created using Autodesk sketchbook, with Adobe Photoshop and iPad/Procreate also being used by the various artists.
Online entries were submitted from Argentina, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Japan, India, Mexico and the USA. Runner ups from China, India, and the USA received autographed vinyl records of LTC's hit EP "Kids at Play." For a complete list of winners and prizes, visit www.paintonebattles.com/ltc
