Hello, it's Lynette from 2DArtist Magazine, here! This is the VOTING thread which is now up and ready for your fantastic final entries to be posted!
Please post your Final Images in this very thread!
800 or 1024 size is fine.
Please post all entries before 8th February 2008 10:30AM GMT.
Only entries posted before this date in this 'Stylized Animal Challenge - Jan 2008 - DRAGONS - VOTING!' thread, will be eligible for Voting.
Voting will then start immediately afterwards and will run until 15th February 2008 10:30AM GMT
I will post to commence the Voting. Voting will be the same as last month with each voter putting forward their top 3 in order, 3pts for a 1st place, 2 pts for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. This means that will have to choose carefully! Feel free to give a reason for your choice as it will be good feedback for all of you!
Thanks again for the enourmous amount of work you have all put in, as usual!:)
Best of luck!!

The world's smallest dragon is a pretty common sight during early summer in the fruit tree groves, looking for a tasty snack :)

gah! I missed it, didn't I? I ran into computer problems and couldn't get it posted
Any chance of mercy for a victim of Murphy's Law?
February 8th, 2008, 08:27 PM
Great looking beasties everyone!
My three after much debating...
Man, too bad for the computer troubles SPipes. Very dynamic and nicely detailed form on your dragon.
February 8th, 2008, 11:16 PM
I'm assuming you can't vote for yourself (I know, pathetic), so here's my 3:
1) Big Mikey
2) Chat Noire
Awesome dragons! I don't feel qualified to critique, though.
February 9th, 2008, 01:46 AM
1.) Entdroid - Love the storybook quality.
2.) Chate Noir - Hilarious image, the expression is great!.
3.) The Antarctican - Nice style, cool toon linework.
A lot of cool dragons to chose from...had to narrow it down.
Nice round everyone!
February 9th, 2008, 03:31 AM
theres my vote!!!
February 9th, 2008, 12:23 PM
Awesome looking entries this round! Here are my votes:
1st -Migsta - I absolutely love the personality with your dragon! Who knew neon green could look so good :P
2nd-The Antarctican - A nice friendly little story going on here! It looks to me like they're all friends, and are planning on having the dragon act like he's mean so that the knight can save the town (and presumably the village hotty) from firey doom...or that's what I read into it, heheh
3rd-bigmikey - Your whole scene is so clean and crisp here, I really dig your style!
February 9th, 2008, 03:18 PM
Awesome work all..Sory I missed this one. I love dragons, but I've been under some serious reconstruction as an artist. Oh well, Hopefull this will come up again one day. Great work from all of you!
February 10th, 2008, 04:15 AM
1. Migsta. Cutest dragon ever with beautiful rendering.
2. daveneale. Extremely stylized, adorable and weiiiiird. I love his little wing.
3. ScaryPotato. Resizing a dragon to bird dimensions is a sweet idea, and its pose, expression and design are great.
Other favorites are entdroid, bigmikey and Einen.
February 11th, 2008, 06:30 AM
Really impressed and inspired this month with all the entries.
Thanks Scarypotato that is indeed the story behind the notion. Cheers.
February 11th, 2008, 05:06 PM
