    Wow. Fantastic round. They should call this contest "Last Man Stunning."

    Stand-outs to me were Flaptraps, Viag, Faxtar (nice and subtle), Cicinimo (are you sure you didn't study under Alma-Tadema?). Jason Chan (made me laugh, and cry...), Ethax, Prostrate Sunrise, Bluefooted, and Steak-Tron (Should be the cover of a sixties sc-fi paperback.)

    As has been mentioned before, I wouldn't want to have to judge Match 16. All winners.

    Woah... Match 16 rules! Great work, dudes.

    Lots of great entries. Unfortunately, I can only see about 1/2 to 3/4 of each because of my crappy slow computer. I'll have to wait until I get to work tomorrow before I can comment on the entries.

    Sweet!

    OH man, Oh man, oh man!

    D: Looking at all these amazing entries, well it makes me sad that events made it impossible to make it...but man oh man I wish I did....or wait! MAYBE it's better this way..away from all the awesome and the possibility of being embarrassed!


    Great job once again, doing all this Cody! Your lack of social life in exchange of art and events never ceases to amaze me, it truly gives me something to aspire to! ;p nah seriously, great work!

    SERIOUSLY some amazing bad ass entries this round!
    I guess I love too many of them to pick and choose..out of the top of my head, entroid, tom (idiot apathy) , flaptraps , hurricane, fedezz, baron impossible, Chan-man, Fvallejo, Manu , bluefooted, steak-tron-on-on and Wassermelon!

    Great job all of you! D: may we the puss outs have better luck next time lol

    Very well done, everybody, though I'm more than a bit down over the fact that 16(?) people didn't come through...

    Thanks flipmcgee. I'm not expecting to advance but this was a great experience for me.

    I don't know which is my favorite. Even zombie apocalypse was pulled off really well; Jason Chan knocked my socks off so hard with that.

    As always a great pleasure to see those different entries suddenky appear one day in one thread. Such a great impact. I love LMS, I hope it will be an eternal feature of this site. Thank to all artists and to the witty leader of the contest.
    I looked with a great interest at all different versions of the theme. Thanks again to all participated and I would select some I like the most.
    Match 2 is the most interesting for me in the whole round, the most interesting to judge IMO and to get involved emotionally. I love all four entries.

    Hurri Charming and obnoxious little bald creatures. Apparently they are no good gnome eaters, such a unfortunate turn of events. I thought at first maybe they have some urgent business to the trapped gnome, but then I saw their teeth deep in the skin of each other. They are gonnna eat him, that's sad.
    Compostion is good, story has a charm, colors and speed of the storytelling is engaging. The only crits from me will be those sharp brim lights which I find a bit too simple solution to how to show light distribution. I would love something more delicate. Too many sharp outlines and too many focal points. I can't help to think it could be done with a less effects and more atmosphere. Overall, the choice of the story and execution shows a good nature of creator .


    vyle
    I love your entry. I like the unfinished feeling of it although it might create some clash of the style a bit IMO. But nevertheless, the feeling of fast approaching catastrophe is very strong. I participate the desperation of the main character, I feel fear and panic looking at it.
    I'm not sure what exactly happened, but the orange light and figure somehow feel like a savior, some hope. I admire how you created this fast moving objects and non stoppable consequence of following events. Looks like it is happening now. Maybe less polished center of the image is especially guilty in creating this feeling.

    yAdam One of my most favorite images.
    The first thing I noticed was the beauty of the landscape and those woody branches or maybe it is some sort of washed rocky ceiling. It on its own pleased me, some warm feeling, I don't know why, but they are done with love.
    And the picture has even more than that. I loved those many orange lights scattered from the above, it transfers a magic feeling to me. I especially like the sly, squinted eye of the octupus looking at me. It is humouros. The story feels like some kind of prank.
    No serious critique, I love everything, maybe the human figures look a bit too stylized comparing to the rest of the pictures, but they add to this humorous impression from the image as well IMO.

    MarkWinters As Travolta said : "I dig propaganda". Image is posted in small size but it intimidates me. Those four riders do look like last judgment.
    I think you didn't even need those dead bodies on streets. The four riders on empty street would look even more impressive I think.

    fedezz This image has charm. The story of discovery of weightless elephant is funny, but I especially appreciate the nostalgic feeling it created in me... about times I never experienced in real life.
    But it is just small things I saw in some old books which were published 20 years before I was born, and the same slightly faded colors with something very domestic in them. More of it, this Turkish cap on the elephant, which is not in use in our days makes me remember something, some events... this is all very sweet. It softly gives orders to my mind to try hard to remove those barriers on its way and find something hiding on the very depth of my memory. That's how your image makes me feel.

    Baron Impossible As always your images look like phantoms for me, like heavy dream loaded with strange, engaging and spooky information. If I saw the illustration like this being a child in some book, I would have forgot all my daily chores and sat on the floor near my bookshelves trying to solve the story puzzle, terrified, revolted and addicted.

    Sept13 You used minimum means to tell your story, but I like it, I was charmed with a gesture of the giant especially. The composition is not the best, though IMO, especially the fact that there is not path for eyesto follow from one character to another. I simply had to stop looking at one of them and jump to next one.

    Aly Not the story about upsetting ugly pimple on the beautiful face of this hell creature attracts me, but the story behind the character herself: who is she? at what unusual event she was going. Her strange, lavish taste attracts me. I like the atmosphere the most, the feeling from colors and symbols in this picutre. They create a certain personality for me: complex, untrustworthy, very intellegent, cruel, snaky, but bright and enticing as well. That's a sensual feeling most of all, not humorous for me.
    There is something heavy about the personality of your character for me. Heavy and graceful in the same time.
    Maybe those whimsical shoes created this feeling, and dull color of old gold, a lot of gold everywhere, and heavy, mature colors.

    Grendel Grack I like your entry for the delicacy and beauty of gentle transition of colors. There is a story in it, but colors and gentleness have the biggest impact and kind of make the rest less important for me. One of the best images IMO.

    Cicinimo Beautiful execution and the story got me hooked. Did he survive or did he avenge? How badly was he treated that he decided to stop lives of those elegant, graceful creatures. Interesting story. The gas-like skirt of the woman sitting on the floor is my favorite part of the image.

    I have a few more favorites, I add them later.

    Another one in my book that needs a special mention is the Sept13 thingy, something very cool about it.

    Will there be a official hanging of the pusses somewhere? Maybe we could post all the "the dog ate my homework" lame ass explanations next to their avatars too?
