Absolutely stand out work by everyone... good luck judges.
My favs are:
Jason Chan (amazing lighting / softness / intimacy / foreboding)
Thom (love the palette, the mood and the scale)
Hurricane (colours are great / mark making and lighting. Great giants as well)
M.C. Barrett (the concept / the ship / the rendering / the colour choices... great stuff!)
Bluefooted (holy crap... what an amazing display of design / restraint and composition... in awe here)
What a Nice Round indeed (*golf clap)!
My fav. Hurry, this one is so nice, and it has some of the strongest storytelling too. Well done dude!
Baron Impossible Very nice indeed! One crit though, the first thing I see when I looked at it was the cowboy on the front left shooting the gun, I later understood that that wasnt him but the robot shooting, my friend here thought the same thing... Besides that really cool!
And a special mention to Bluefooted, very nice expressive peace (although I think the theme could be nailed more if u felt the dragons superiority to the inferiority of the wolfs more).
Amazing, wonderful round! You people blow my mind miles away. Nothing gives me the pencil-itch more than seeing such top-notch stuff. They're all varied and imagintive, so it's hard to pick just one fave, but I'll have to go with bluefooted's piece, I love the idea and style
Hey Francis i like the yakuza work you did
i liked how you welded the shapes and the overall design
of the shapes :-D
Hurricane, that is awesome! very clear visualization
of the theme and the execution is top notch!! i love it
and the character design is real good too.
M.C. that color palette is great
and it sets the mood really well for the setting,
excelent choice and that ship is outstanding
the way you rendered it
and all the temperatures changing is just cool!
Jason Chan, i dunno how you pulled it off,
all those elements and it all looks part of the same world,
the materials and forms.
just gotta admire the top part of the creatures head
and how the light hits it and the way you painted that.
all transparencies are lovely
Ben, i love that ship!! thats so cool wish i could zoom in
cause you did some awesome paint scraps panels and details
and the rendering is tops!! also like the colors and bounce light
that water is very nice too specially under the ship, nice
variety of broad brushtrokes and tiny details on the painting
Hey Min i love the characters, and the brushwork is so good
very nice edges and the back cast shadows give a very nice
abstract design to the whole piece, lovely palette too
Tamte how did you picked the people color choices, that
is a very unique approach i like the foreground bald guy
very nice color choices :-D
Thom . . . . that is coool . . . i love how you left
the architecture in a simple paint color with minimum
pattern contrast and the white spray on it just sells the story
right away, it looks fantastic and the lighting is great, oh man
that is badass . . :-O
Hey Nicolas you already know i love yours right? ;-)
but just in case you forgot, i think you did some
outstanding work and care on it, i like that spaceship
and the galleons execution is great.
Baron Impossible i just noticed there is a bullet
bouncing off the robots neck that is so cool,
oh man even all the guns he carries are autos!!
so much disadvantages, this guys stand no chance with their revolvers :-D
awesome storytelling and execution.
man that is awesome Kemp! i always get the feeling
that you do your homework and research your reference,
all the work in every part of the illo is very good
and visually is clear to read the theme
even on the space placement of the main elements,
advantage up disadvantage down, nice colors too
ok Jaime that is some masterwork brushwork going on
one of the finest and more energetic application, takes a lot
of talent to pull off something like this, specially the lost edges
my hat is off
spraynation that looks like a lot of work! but you did it
very nice sense of scale and atmosphere i like the design
work you did on the coliseum
all entries are awesome!!! it's gonna be hard for the judges
Gaah, what a round! Beautiful work, love the variety of approaches and ideas to this topic. Favorites from me would have to be Hurricane, bluefooted, flaptraps, and Baron Impossible; as people have said though I feel for the judges, this is a very tough round! Great work once again everyone!
great turn out everyone!! thom- awesome stuff, jamie yours turned out great, chan, ben, Bluefooted, viag, all good. fvallejo that would be rad for a large print on a shirt. spraynation, fedezz yours are both rad, good work!
Brilliant work all round, and hard to pick a definite favourite, though Baron Impossible, Bluefooted and Hurricane's entries stood out on my first look through. A cracking round.. can't wait to see who's going through to that final.
