Introducing Admiral Swiggins!

After several weeks of submissions, the “Design your ‘naut!” contest on Facebook has concluded! The first half of the contest asked for people to submist descriptions of their own Awesomenaut and a bit of his/her backstory. The winner of this fase of the competition was Channfree with his Admiral Swigginssubmission, an anchor-wielding space-squid!

For the second fase artists had to submit an idea what Admiral Swiggins was supposed to look like, and this part was won by Coffeybean4!

Here’s a list of all the finalists, congrats to you all!
