LMS3: Round Three | Matchups Announced!
Last Man Standing 3 | Round Three
The complete listing of LMS3 Round Three matches can be found here:
Deadline: 11:59pm PST - Sunday, June 22nd 2008
Topic: Unfair Advantage
The topic, as always, is completely open to interpretation, allowing for you to visualize your concept through any subject matter you deem fit. This is an illustration-based contest, and you will be expected to turn in a completed piece that stands on its own without the aid of a description. Both traditional and digital mediums can be used, but the majority of your piece must be painted/drawn with little use of photography and 3D modeling.

Submitting your entry: All entries are expected to be saved at web resolution and at a reasonable size (try to keep the width under 1000px, less than 450k). If you send me a huge piece, I will Save for Web at a smaller resolution resulting in a finished product that may not appear as you intended. Do that yourself if you care!
Submit your entries to hello [a t] lastmanart [d o t] com, with the subject Round Three Entry: Your Conceptart.org User Name. Name your file match#_yourusername_round3.jpg. If you can host it on your web space instead of attaching it to the email, I'd appreciate it. Don't post your entries until the final day! You can show a few people you trust for comments, obviously, but we want the final post to come as one big unveiling.
Judging: Every round will be judged by an incredibly talented group of judges... the list is still being finalized, but it will be a relatively static panel throughout the competition. Each piece will be judged based on technical execution, creativity in the interpretation of the topic, and overall impact. All judges decisions are final. No whining!

Puss Outs: If you drop out of the competition without an extremely valid excuse and without plenty of time before the deadline for me to place in a substitute, you are officially a puss out. You will be black-listed from the next Last Man Standing competition and subject to ridicule. In short, tell me now if you plan on being a puss or face the consequences. :)
With just 18 contenders left out of the initial 360, we're nearly down to the wire. Here's to making these six matches being the toughest to judge yet.
