ryuloulou - dude that turned out awesome. Yours is my fave I love the Klimt-esque drawing in the background. Great color choice too.
Puppykitten - thanks! I liked the colors in yours too - it's also super clean and the subtlety is cool. Not really my type of face though but that's just taste.
MarkDN - I like yours a lot... Only thing I would have done differently is have the wing go over the arm too, it'd have to bend funny to facilitate that pose... But the way he's standing is pretty sexy :]
dream_sear - love the pose and the torso. Staking the poor guy isn't very sexy though, hehe. Really nice paint job on the torso though!

Posting my final here, too... The thing is BARELY dry, talk about sneaking in under the wire... >.< (Assuming I'm not too utterly late.) Background is acrylic (not doing that again in a hurry,) figure is done in oils, blood added in Photoshop due to lack of time. Lessons learned: 1) I still hate acrylic, 2) I paint way faster in oils than in acrylic, 3) don't use 1-ply bristol board, it warps like hell.
Otherwise, this was a hell of a lot of fun (the part that was done in oils, anyway. The acrylic portions... not so fun.)
Also, I want that jacket. XD
Will browse/comment on the rest of the entries after brunch - some nifty-looking stuff coming in at the last-minute, I see!

VERY 'come-hither'! And thanks for the advice on the arms, Gwenevere. You were spot on; looks much better now. *curtsy*

Argh, it seems so obvious now, but I suppose good ideas do tend to seem that way. That area was a real bother, I'm sorry I didn't think of that possibility at the time.
I like the humor in yours - the shocked 'morning after' look as his reflection fades...

*checks* Ah, yes, he DOES look better now. Much better. Yup, that was pretty much the only thing that was bugging me about him, he looks lovely now. A rather poetic take, I quite like it...
And staking him through the hair is a nice touch, I just noticed that...
Ok, our boy's back and this time he's got wrap-around plumage like a demonic exotic dancer.

Still WIP - I gave him a bit of a smirk but messed his eyes up. I'm considering changing the hands to give them a bit of gesture, to give the piece more dynamism. And legs, he'll need some o' them... at first I was trying to make his legs look half formed out of a mysterious glow as though he'd just apparated, but I'm thinking perhaps wings make that less credible and more confusing.
