    hungryan:thanks.actually only the face looks like me, but you are right i wanted to make the character like a common guy that happens to be a supervillian.

    Flipnastywebby:no problem about the name, looking to my entry now the lettering is a bit ambiguous(the d looks like an x). so "ride to hell"? i guess thats not a bad thing, no? i have to check that works( i see the preview of the massive black artbook but i don't know the works you refer to)

    Zilrion:thanks.yes, i should make the power more evident.thanks for the comment.

    great round, really good works!

    some comments:

    ADAM SCHUMPERT:nice image, destruction all around!. the shirt seem a bit too iluminated i think(regarding the rest of the body and the lights sources)

    goog:i like the feel of the painting. the colours and the light is very nice.it looks like some kind of "evil lord"

    GregTaylor: very dark image.it looks like some kind of "hell knight" very nice image.

    NADIAMOON:very original take. im not to sure about what is the thing in the place of her head(doesn't affect the picture,though)
    nice image

    NETHER:a very confident type of villian,eh? i like the cover type aproach. the right arm looks a bit small in my opinion.

    tugelbend:that's a really sadistic expression! very evil in my opinion.i like the colours and the dynamism of the piece. the onply thing that think don't work too well is the woman on the lower right corner(the one been attacked) it looks almost like a mannequin compared to the rest of the characters. really good work.

    deadred:very clean and well conceived image. the pandas are really good...specially the small one with the guns! very good!

    dirkvandulmen:thats a very funny image! the expression of the
    face is great!

    Stoat:the figure itself and the face are great.plus the good humor.the superior part of the image is bit "full" in my opinion(the flame touching the letters and the edge of the frame)

    Felida: i like the feel of the piece.the character is very sinister.the background could a bit more softed in my opinion. nice image

    graphuji:i guess that would be an enemy of superman,no? nice image. the body looks a bit small..is he a robot or is just a suit?
    the colours are nice.

    JessiBean:great image indeed.love the colour palette. i like the more calm look she has, and the eyes makes you wanders whats going on on her mind.

    Sentinel13:great image. very angry expression.

    VORACE:great image. the expresion on his face is very good. the general mood is very nice.

    Zilrion:nice image. it looks like some villian with personal issues. the background is a bit unfinished i think. keep an eye on the curves and lines that make the form(like in the arm) to make a more believable shape(offset curves and rhythms)i like the overall mood.

    Flipnastywebby: destruction and pain.i like the feel of the piece and the idea behind is interesting.

    matjosh:
    very relaxed villian.evil in an almost natural calm way. very good figure an gesture.

    RYULOULOU:nice image. good costume

    masque:i like the result of the paint and the colours. he looks like a mad scientist that no one want to paid for his research.nice image.

    John Shamburger: nice image, ilike the costume and the colours.

    Decayng lolita: i like the general result. she looks sad and a bit nostalgic so i guess is more of the "idealistic" type of villian(the one with personal scars, that make her turn to that path)

    BAXTER:good result. i like the colours and more graphic aproach. i think you could show more of the face due to the nature of this chow.

    Trevor:great image and great execution. i like the design of the character and the spinal appendix with the lighter is a good detail.the mood of the piece it works really well.

    Artofinca: i like the plastic result of the piece. there is probably to much attention and importance in the lower part of the figure(more texture, strokes,etc) in my opinion(don't affect too much the image,thouugh) nice image.

    poison:he looks dark and angry.more variation in colour sheme could help to add richness.nice image overall

    Sticman:i like the expression of the face.the perspective don't work quite well, specially the left arm(looks a bit small)nice image

    WASSERMELONE:i like the colours and mood.the brush strokes are very nice.the proportions are a bit longer(don't know if that whats your idea)the left leg seems a bit stranger in the bending in my opinion. good image

    Famable:nice idea.the background could use more work(specially since is an alley)nice image

    Clochete:love the colours and the general feel.the expression is versy good.

    Leuparaleu: nice design.the background is nice but im not too sure about covering the feet.

    shannanigan: very good image. the characters are very nice. and the villian characters is very expressive.

    VILLA:i really like the atmosphere of the painting. the camera angle and gesture of the character are very good.

    gtgauvin:a villian whi seeks world domination. thats the impression i get from your picture. the posture of the figure is very nice.the grey of the wall and floor is abit "hard" in my opinion(a bit more of variety could enhance the image i think)

    Tim:very nice:i like the army characters.the expression of the character is well done.

    HUNGRYAN:very origianl take on the subject. i like the transformation idea.and the sprite animation looks great.great work.

    thats all the entries in the poll(i guess) good work everyone...now to the chow 146

    Overall impressions: There were a lot of really, really dark and shadowy works in this CHOW. Too shadowy and dark, in a lot of cases.

    I considered technical skill, composition, concept, and how well the works conveyed the concept of villainy.

    In the end, the determining factor was: If I saw actual comics with these characters on the shelf at my local comic shop, would I buy the comics?

    I voted for: deadred, Stoat, Ryuloulou, and wassermelone.

    Close (I didn't want to vote for more than four): Adam Schumpert, Nether, John Shaumburger, and Trevor.

    JessiBean and mattjosh's works were extremely well done, but they just didn't look like villains to me.

    One comment on one of the pieces that didn't make it to poll:

    renard mxdf: I want a Piranha Gun. I want, want, want, WANT a Piranha Gun!

    ADAM: eff yes. i think we all feel like this at times. just great.

    deadred: holy crap. this is amazing. amazing composition and prefect depiction of the somewhat unusual subject matter.

    flipnastywebby: amazing. i love the weird, our of control feel here. and it's really well executed.

    hungryan: damn this is awesome. i love that old school 16-bit vibe. amazing.

    amazing work from everyone.

    i have noticed that a comment i made before was a nonsense(due to mi bad english) so here is the correction:

    JessiBean:great image indeed.love the colour palette. i like the more calm look she has, and her eyes generates intrigue about her posible plans.

    flamable: nice idea in theory, but they have to be careful. That might make us better artists, and then we'd be a threat to them.

    Wow, that was cynical! Think I got too deep into the mindset during this CHOW, I'm seeing conspiracies and power-plays everywhere.

    No that I look back... Hardly any of these are supervillians in the normal sense. Most of these are just villians. A supervillian is usually the head of the villians or the most feared. Mainly the supervillian is very intelligent and usually bossy. My piece was definetly NOT a supervillian. Supervillians have to be ultra evil and overseeing and powerful...

    Decaying Lolita :: i missed a crit on you last time. I really liked your work this time around, more so because you can see it and you didnt hide both of your hands. you still have some fuzzy areas in your work but with each piece they have been less and less

    you'll have to look for yourselves who i voted for,didn't really limit myself,except by gut feeling again. as in "who of these would work as an adversary to a hero?".
    i think my favourite is adam's,it really captures that "supervillain" feeling. i could well imagine any hero going up against him multiple times. hell,superman would probably have a busy time. very believable concept,i'd probably buy that comic.(technical skill, of course, can still be improved,but you know that )
    bonus votes to stoat (for reminding me of darkwing duck) and shannanigan (that one was just too much fun).

    I love a good supervillain, and I was heartbroken I didn't have time to finish an entry for this week. There were so many other entries though, and I had a tough time picking. I decided to limit myself to three:

    deadred - How can you say no to evil demon pandas? You just can't.
    ryuloulou - I really liked the expression and style of the piece.
    matjosh - A bit off the mainstream supervillain path, but supervillains come in all kinds of varieties. I really liked this idea, and it's execution.

    Like many others have said already, most of the entries this week were really great, but lacked enough malicious intent. Some others were evil enough, but it's my vote and I vote what I like.

    So many great entries this time, but I was looking at what they where displaying...

    Jessibean- This is probably the best image this round around... but it looks like a generic evil(or angry, scorned you have it) pirate... not per se a supervillain :/

    Tugelbend would have been an obvious choice, however... He looks like a pissed off superheroe! It's a great(!) image, but where is the villain...?

    Trevor- Best image that display a supervillain this time around. got my vote.

    Hungryan- got my vote also, just because it's a pixelated animation... it's cool, though normally I wouldn't have voted for it and..well..should it make it to the final cut?`But got my vote



    EDIT: HUH?! Hungryan didn't get a vote from me... weird... is multiple-voting off now?
    HE should have a vote from me!

    Everyone, WOW...I don't know...villainy sure brings out some of the best in artworks!! Yeah, I was so excited about this CHOW, mad that I couldn't join. And THIS is why! Just...just AWESOME!!! Such inspiring works!! I'm almost salivating...

    So once AGAIN I vote in one CHOW that's really hard to vote in!! So many goodies I had to narrow it down. I pretty much voted if you looked super-villanous enough to me and if you looked like you in the pic (if you have a ref...cuz even without it I loved WAY too many!) I guess I'm just trying to follow the brief, myself...sorta.

    Oh and I'm just mentioning people that are on the voting block. Calling you "him/her" in the actual pic, but I know it's you!!

    Um....I'm sorry in advance, but this will be a looooooooong read!! Took me hours to write all this! O_O Then I had to cut out the non-vote feedback...geez! Just know that a lot of the ones that didn't get a vote, it was mainly because I didn't see super-villany there at all. Yet the pics were just amazing!

    So here goes:

    Stoat: That looks pretty close to you, actually! O_O And this one is another favourite of mine!! She looks to be enjoying the mayhem she's caused already...yeah, I find that an awesome trait of some super villains. What's really cool about her is that she appears innocent with the dress, but her smile is both innocent and calculatingly sinister at once... How you did that, I dunno, but AWESOME!!! O_O Yeah, she'd bring down a nice friendly neighbourhood, alright...

    Vorace: Ha! That's you!! ...I'll try hard not to make you mad anytime soon. You could be a supervillain, you could be in a group of supervillains... But I know someone would want you bombarding their enemies. Looks like you would go ca-RAZY doing it! Another fave!

    masque: Now the world plays, indeed...looks like NO ONE can change his mind about what he's doing!! He's got a total creepiness, coldness, that I can just envision in a super villain. I'm not sure who's you in that ref pic, but I'm quite sure he resembles you!!

    dirkvandulmen: Looove the rendering!! Those humungous muscles work so well! He looks like he's suffering in his super-villany!! Hee hee!! Yep...I'd so do that too with my eyes...stupid applications!! Ha! I love your experiments with expression, too!! Inspiring!

    JessiBean: Ahhhh, if there's one thing I love, it's villainous pirate ladies... I'm biased, yeah. XD XD She looks seductive but you KNOW she'd strike fear in someone...I'm sure she'd strike other stuff in them too...uh-oh. Won't get caught on HER ship!! I say that I recognize your face quite well, and not because I want you to spare me...hee hee!

    Trevor: I'm surely guessing you look pretty much like that in the face. XD Now, I can totally see you as some crazy super-villain, wreaking havoc like it appears you did. O_O (I'm assuming you did it...I'm tellin'. I am...) I'm surprised if that's not your own brand of cigarette in your fingers there. Lemme say, awesome AWESOMELY amazing detail!! I'm convinced!

    GregTaylor: Yeah, I can totally see him as a super villain. O_O Totally freaks me out. Owww, with that sharp thing in his hand!! >_<

    Villa: I'm unsure of what a western "spaghetti" villain is, hee! But I'm assuming you got it right! Anyway, I just love this one. Look at the crazy stuff he's got goin' on around him! I bet he'd break someone up just for looking at him!! Oh yeah, and I do believe he'd make a great western super-villain! Impressed! As for the looks, I think he kinda looks like you. Hee hee!

    Hungryan: It kinda looks like you, though I think the sprite-ness is throwing me off! XD But wow, he looks like he could be a supervillain...ah, reminds me of so many kooky crazy bosses at the ends of platform levels. Love the red hair. One of my faves!

    Baxter-E: The face is scary enough, and he looks...poisonous...VERY. O_O Though I can't see enough of your mouth, I DO see your features in him...oh yeah, that's you alright!! XD *shudder*

    Ryuloulou: I wondered what she did! Though I did think it had to do with something of a vaccuum. XD Another fave, I really think she could do some crazy damage to planet, galaxies and my bedroom. O_O Beautiful details, and they capture a subtle ferocity in her. I really wish I could see your face to compare, but I love her nasty smirk anywayz!

    Sticmann: Oooh, the one raised eyebrow...I always thought villains did that right! XD I like the angular features on the face, so expressive!! I can see him as a super villain...I wouldn't know whether to be freaked out or naive about what he can do!

    DecayingLolita: Yours is one of my favourite looks! Now, she could possibly be a super villain! I feel that curiosity creeping...what would she do...? O_O Oh, I think she looks most like you in the chin. That's neat!

    jshamburger: Wherever he is in that pic, it might be a mind-boggling place! Whimsical wear, but I see a strange little glint in his eye... Whoo for evil intentions, yeah!! XD I like the overall detail you put into this, though I think your "powers" need a little more glow!

    Nether: Something calm AND calculating about him there!! Oh, he's a super-villain...the slogan makes his expression funny. LOL! If he looks like you in the face, I bet you make some really cool expressions! Excellent linework, by the way!

    Adam Schumpert: Took me a moment to decide, but things just popped out to me after awhile: Some strange focus, not looking back. I see a super-villain...man!!I love that. This is such an engaging story waiting to happen here! And he has your look...awesome accuracy!

    poison: Totally diggin' that face!! Oh man...scary...very scary. Now, I wish the whole pic weren't so dark, but the colours really bring out an intimidated emotion in me... I think that's so worth praise! And yeah, I'd say you 'n' he are very alike in the face. O_O

    t i m: I mightn't eat anything sugary EVER AGAIN with your entry!! >_< Yikes!! I think what scares me more than your smile...heh...are those open-mouthed monsters about to do your bidding! O_O

    Dang I ended up being a big softee this round, couldn't limit myself to a few, so I ended voting for everybody. They are all so good.
