    Thumbs up pollice verso

    The crowd is the true ruler of Thunderdome. When a gladiator warrior falls to the victor, the crowd screams to chear on the fallen warriors' fate, using "pollice verso", or turned thumb.

    The final pieces are posted in a separate thread to use as a gallery.

    Post your comments on the final pieces for Thunderdome 6 here!

    Good luck to all who enter; the hour draws near.

    Habet, peractum est!!!

    Yep, the rules read
    The warrior can be male or female. Human or non-human, but must be independant (they can wipe their own ass), mortal, and have at least the intelligence of a human.
    Anyways, finally thats for the judges to decide. Because the rules also read:
    As long as they survive in the Thunderdome, they don't decline
    So that means they are, somehow, all immortal. If they can't die from time, they can at least die from a blade...

    My faves are the Hun and the rubygenesis' Centaur.

    I like the Defender of Christianity, but this piece is breaking the rules. It's not an ancient civilization, and it's in the middle ages. Mitch, how are these types of pieces going to be judged? I have a feeling there will be more of these from the Middle Ages.

    I mean, if these can still win, then we should just change the rules all together.:confused:

    many things will be taken into consideration in the judging process. I can also say (hint) that when posting the finished pieces, what you add as a tagline will not help the piece win.

    most importantly what the judge will be looking at:

    1) artistic skill
    2) sticking with the descriptions
    3) presentation of the character
    4) can the character kick some ass in the ring

    mitch

    Thanks endregan,

    It's definitely an advantage to count Jon and Kevin among my friends. I do alot of really exaggerated stuff for work and so when Kevin visited me and brought his designs for 'Call Of Duty' i began to itch to do a something realistic and historically accurate, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. I approached it like an illustration assignment from national geographic because i figured most everyone would be designing in a style more appropriate for a videogame.

    I really appreciate your compliment, high praise considering the competition.

    Lukavi: Awsome persian, love his armour design, escpecially his shoulders.

    Carlo: Mad skillz, that's all I can say.

    Rubygenesis: Damn, YOur Centaur turned out awsome, very powerfull and agile looking.

    R_m: Great composition. Lots of emotion.

    these last hours willl be the coolest, just to see what everyone comes up with.

    Joachim, simple and great. :beer:
    Rubygenesis. Looks very agile and dangerous. He migth attack like a shadow... :evilbat:
    Carlo. Too cool. I miss a backgrond and you might had worked that hand a bit more... but anyway, looks very good.
    Lukavi. I like that style. You put a lot of feel to it. :chug:

    My Faves.....

    I like Hordeprime's image, he reminds me of Bubba Hotep!
    Fun Movie!
    I also like Joachim's piece, it makes me proud to have a
    viking cat.

    I have to say my favorite is Carlo's piece though, he's a guy
    i'd be afraid to enter the ring with. No "Gods", no Guns, just a
    dude who'd beat me with my own head....

    oh, I am biased though, 'cause i like the style of his painting.

    -what i mumbled under my breath from Detroit to LA.

    I was wondering when Dan was going to post his amazing masterpieces that put us all to shame. Lets just start calling Thunderdome, Dan Milligandome.
    Great Job Dan!
