    that was a tough vote, i think i kept it down to 5, but there was many others i also liked, but they strayed off the brief a little or the image just didn't quite work as well as it could have, if it came down to simple rendering qualities then i would have voted for more. Was a great turn out, congrats to all those that finished. Can't wait to see what people come up with for the queen, that is going to be interesting

    I could have voted for a lot more, but in this half of the thread I've gone for:

    Joiton - Exciting and different! Love it. Main crit: a little unclear with details.

    Bluefooted - Smashing! He's a bit floaty on the ground, but that's all really.

    Alice - Love this! The expression is wonderful, as are the colour choices. Perhaps a bit more detail within the costume patterns, but I'm being picky.

    Davi - Great pose and colour scheme. Could do with seeing his face more clearly for a character piece.

    Brain... hurts...
    Too many good entries.
    Looks like the competition for top spot is pretty fierce between Stephen_R,
    Bluefooted, Carotello and JessiBean. So glad we're not limited to one vote - it'd be way too hard to choose.

    On this side I voted for: fydbac, Carotello, Bluefooted and dabble (on the other side I voted for StephanR).

    Simply put, the two entries I liked the most were from Bluefooted and fydbac. I am a sucker for the fantastic line work + beautiful muted color images. Loved the costume designs and little details added to each image.

    The one I thought nailed the posted brief the best was Carotello’s. He oozes power through that regal stance while incorporating his duty as the flag-bearer for his queen.

    Finally, I voted for the image I thought nailed the brief and quality, but totally caught me off guard (sort of a “Why didn’t I think of that!?”) –
    dabble's. The image really is the one that hits on the genre of the old queen the best, and in my mind is her most realistic Herald. She is an “urban corsair” and as such should have a Herald to match. Hi-tech power through speed, while incorporating the banner of the queen. Great concept and really well done image I thought.

    Other things I really liked on this side:
    Mr. Delicious – I liked the choice of light source, color and positioning of the figures alot.
    Alice – Love the patterns and design on the fabrics and materials. Great facial expression and body language.

    First of all, I think there are many great entries!
    My votes go to:
    Carotello: Simply because he looks like a Herald, and you nailed what I had in mind at the beginning.
    Alice: I really like the design of the dress, delicate mysterious, and not a standart warrior.
    Mr.Delicious: It's more the whole mood and story, than the Herald it self, but I like it really much

    If I only had one vote, it would definitely go to Stephan_R. That one is heart-stoppingly lovely. I hope everyone looked at the big version in the WIP thread; it suffers more than most from being scaled down.

    I think I cast about five votes beyond that, though, and STILL had to leave out several I thought were excellent.

    Was this the highest level of participation for a ChOW?
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Thanks for the votes, all!

    Let's see... Over here I voted for:

    fydbac: Lots of surprising details and a fun traditional style.

    carotello: Awesome job! He's gorgeous. Beautiful detailing on the clothes, as well.

    Jason Snair: Love the light in this one.

    Alice: Wonderful style and a great character.

    dabble: One of my favorite entries - it's too bad your thumbnail is so small. I really enjoy the sense of movement in this one.

    Oregano you need to let people know that they can vote as many times as they want, clearly and loudly, as obviously people are just making up rules arbitrarily LOL


    In my opinion, Carotello has the most complete grasp of the CHOW this time. She far surpassed everyone else for capturing 100% of the elements required. There were about 5 other exceptional pieces, JessiBean, Bluefooted, Stephan_R, Gwenevere, and Penumbra come to mind immediately however, they didn't quite capture the essence of what this CHOW was about. But they did make beautiful art.

    I wish we could cut down on the nepotism, but as that's really kinda rampant everywhere in life, I suppose it just is something that you gotta shrug and go 'yeah it happens' and move on.

    I'd like to cast a quick shout out to Schade as I think his concept was one of the coolest and the pose interesting, but the technical painting was a bit lacking.

    It's too bad how much I notice people being /great/ conceptual thinkers and line artists, and when they begin to paint the quality lacks -- and vice versa. Great painters with no ability to draw correctly.

    The disconnect is frustrating to the extreme!!!
