ROUND 8 - Winners

Wow! This has been such an amazing round, with 49 entries in total. This was the most difficult judging process so far, we had to push aside so many art/performances to pick the 5 winners, many of them considered and reconsidered to be among the winners, I really want to applaud you all on being so great to make this contest alive, and thank @gtg and @curie for making it happen by providing upvotes and rewards for the i-Talent


FIRST PLACE | Prize 26 SBD ⭐️

⚪️ Let's Stay Together (Al Green Cover) ⚪️

This outstanding cover of the eternal classic that most of us know from the movie Pulp Fiction was done so perfectly by Edouard Privat de Garilhe. If you are not a singer you might miss this fact, but to cover "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green it takes a really good vocal range and an exquisite falsetto performance. Al Green was one of the first artists that introduced male falsetto into soul and popular music, among with some other artists in the 70' s he made it masculine, instead of a funny or weak atribute for a male singer which was considered before.

SECOND PLACE | Prize 16 SBD ⭐️

⚪️ Be Ehsas (Senseless) (Original Song) ⚪️

Let me tell you why this man, Davood Faramarzi is special and an outstanding artist. He records, produces, sings and writes majority of his music by himself at home. Every segment you hear in his song Be Ehsas is him, and what he created is just amazing, the structure of the song is Electronic Dance Music, but the dynamics go beyond that, mixing in segments of "sound" that come from his homeland Iran, and do I have to even mention his beautiful vocals singing in his native language, much respect!

THIRD PLACE | Prize 10 SBD ⭐️



⚪️ Spacewalk (Ewan Dobson Cover) ⚪️

There is nothing like a good old fingerstyle to make someones day, it is just something about the acoustic guitar instrumental that is soothing and relaxing and easy on the ears. Spacewalk by Ewan Dobson is a great composition among many from his works, I remember seeing Ewan a decade ago doing trance music with his guitar and his Raiden hat, that is a blast from the past right there :) Jeff nailed this performance with all the technicalities in their place, and his personal character added to it. I'm extremely happy to see such talent on this contest.

⚪️ Yin and yang sunrise sunset ⚪️

Once again it was not possible to exclude @errymil from top 5, even if this painting is a variation on theme from the last entry, it is just a heart warming sensation on canvas. In one of the early Errymil posts, I've read that he after being food poisoned had a rapid cleansing and when attempting to meditate and succeeding, he has seen a symbol what he later learned to be "Flower of Life", a very sacred symbol that appears across the globe for millenniums. I really felt something different in his paintings when I took a glimpse for the first time on Steemit, and after reading this I really understood that he took a turn for the best, reaching out inside, and using canvas to express his states of mind, you can read his #introduceyourself post here if you are interested in his story.

FIFTH PLACE | Prize 3 SBD ⭐️

Ramses.ber.png Venezuela-s.gif


⚪️ The face of life ⚪️

@ramses.ber is a young man from Venezuela, by the looks of it his two passions are fitness and painting, both obviously working for him, I see he is improving himself as a person and an artists with each day and I can see him "going places" and making his earnings in the future with his talent. It is truly seldom seen that someone his age is expressing through "realism" this good, something that takes years of practice, I applaud you Ramses, great job!

Amazing job complimenting rest of the winners @errymil a pleasure to have cool people like you here :) ✌

always a pleasure, i have a request tho, can the dead line change to Wednesday if its possible, i usually work my full time from wed night to friday, so most of the time i paint sun - tues.

Actually deadline is Wednesday @errymil :) remember I told you last time that after the deadline there is 3 extra days announced under "You still have time to join until..." this is done so those few extra entrants who didn't make it have a chance, so there you have it just lands on the day you requested ✌

Thanks so much @errymil, your work is amazing,my mind is blown each and every time !!Your Wolf Goddess is up to that day my favorite as it's my animal totem

congratulations truly @edprivat , your voice is just so beautiful i wish i could hear it live one day, thanks for your suggestion that i had an idea of what to paint for next week. thinking of a sacred animal spirit

Thanks so much for your kind comment! I can't wait to see it , my internet is on and off at the moment, but I will try not to miss that one out !

Errmil ! Thank you so much! It means much to me! <33

Thank you for the opportunity @ivan.atman, @curie and @gtg, being able to compete with the top 5 is an honor itself!

Did ya’all see who the winner is?! My man @edprivat! :attention: This dude works his you know what off around here harder than the frikkin bots even! Congratulations friend, you earned it!

And 2nd place through 5th place - Excellent job judges! You guys nailed it. Congratulations everyone.

OOOOh My dude !!! You are the realest mofo , thanks for your kind compliment, and for being such a good sport as your are amazing , I can't believe it was just your first try

Yeah @dandays Ed is an amazing artist, posting 2-3 posts a day woa!, I applaud him on both quality "and" quantity...
Your drawing is amazing @dandays don't think it gone unnoticed, it was just too tough to pick selection and winners with 49 entries and a lot of them good ones, don't let this discourage you from entering again, your art is really cool!

Not a chance sir! Any time I see an opportunity to compete with people like @edprivat and @adelepazani, I’m in!

All right! @dandays great to hear that :)

Thank you dandays <3 :d

I am speechless !!! I was not expecting to win , especially the first place. All I can say , is that we are transitioning at the moment (no we're not changing sex), meaning my wife left her job, so It's up to us to make it work as we go all in on the block chain, and you my friend, @gtg and @curie has made that possible with an opportunity like Italent.
Without knowing it , us artist thrive on deadlines and competition, that's how we get better!
Few years ago I could not sing that song as the falsetto was too hard to reach. Winning is a token of my hard work, commitment, and dedication to STEEM. I will always bring the best of my work here, because this is what this platform deserve.

Thanks to the judges for having the hardest task here, and congratz to all the winners, and even those that didn't feature on the top 5 , well done, it was one of the best ITalent round and I am proud to be a part of it !

Thanks @ivan.atman you just rock !

Congratulations @edprivat! Beautiful performance! I'm glad to hear about your big dedication toward your musical improvement and merging with this platform! People like you are making this a better place for all of us! Good luck, buddy!

Thanks for your comment :) @megy.fine.arts , the crypto world is a small world, for now, but I have no doubt that we are still the early adopters, and we will benefit all from it !

Very well deserved @edprivat I'm glad that you respect this contest and I agree with you completely with everything you've said above from the artists point of view, this contest I did for the reason to extend the artist's exposure on the platform, and even if I do not earn anything from it right now, to see people being supportive like this is kinda making me going forward with it, and to see that great artists attend it and consider it as a serious thing makes me happy :) big up Ed, and thanks for the kind words ✌

Dude I am taking your competition very seriously, I would never be a part of it with random stuffs, just the best of the best. Big up to you , I feel that you should get paid too for what you doing :)

Thank you for thinking that @edprivat :) maybe the "pay for it" part comes later, for now I do what I can to make it look pretty ✌
