    I voted daedred, vorace, wassermelone, clochette and hungryan with wassermelon's being my favorite by a stretch. i love the saturated palette, reflected light and combination of smooth and grainy. 2nd choice was vorace for the very cool, very french looking illustration. i wish i could wrap my head around drawing like that.

    Took a bit to take all the entries in, quite a boatload!

    Narrowed my choices down to 3, judging by how villainous they looked, how well powers were conveyed and uniqueness.

    My votes went to:

    Wasser: Very interesting character! I love the vibrant colors too. Definitely my fav of this round
    Villa:Definitely stands out in the crowd, nice genre choice.
    Ryu: I really dug the composition. Face is very accurate as well.

    Major kudos all around, was a very fun round.

    I forgot how the multiple votes worked, so i only got one in. I went Trevor, but i loved and meant to put a vote in for the Panda and the awesome dread pirate chick from Jessibean. Consider yours unofficially voted on by me.

    (unless theres a way to make them official that i just dont know about...)

    Awww damn, I knew, it wouldn't be going to poll for that. I just hoped you wouldn't notice, daestwen But hey, I should have known that you can't be fooled. And after seeing all this high superbness work of everyone, it probably would have been cut for quality reasons, so I don't mind... But it really was so much fun and I would like to thank you for your great work every week


    I haven't decided on whom to vote for, but here are some C&Cs, if you care:

    Tugelbend - I love this flashy kind of lighting in your picture, but could you explain, what you are doing there? Is your power... letting... err... silicone... explode...? Well that's a cool idea, anyhow

    Baxter-E - I don't know why, but it somehow reminds me of Jafar from Disney's Aladdin.

    dirkvandulmen - thehe ^^ funny. I like the WIP without the glowing eyes better, though.

    shannanigan - great pose!!!

    trevor - mmmmh, that's some quality work right there, really a super villain. I also like the WIPs, but you culd have thrown in a picture of yourself, so we could judge how well you got the likeness.

    jshamburger - nice colours and effects

    deadred - whoa... I'm blown away, so gonna vote for you. Why didn't I notice it when scrolling through? Yours has so much character, could easily be a concept for some game... like the boss of a snowy level in some RPG.

    hungryan - awesome twist, looks like your gonna be hard to defeat in that arcade game

    matjosh - awesome concept, beautifully brought to canvas

    Stoat - really great one, too. Maybe the keys are looking a bit like they're floating around, they don't seem to be affected by gravity. But that's really something minor.

    Gax - awwww, you should have made it more of a portrait, but I know, that this is your style

    JessiBean - so shiney... those colours...those skintones I'm in love with your skintones. Good to see, that you brightened the final a little bit up. It doesn't seem to be very much of a villain rather than the superhero-pirate goodgirl herself, but how could I not vote for you...?

    Poison - now that's what I call a villaneous expression

    Clochette - the likeness seems to be pretty much on spot and I like your style, but I'm not too fond of the glow effect of your spell... the lightning it causes on the face is great, but the glow itselfs doesn't seem to fit your style. But still an awesome picture, anyways

    Sentinel13 - beautifully rendered. My little crit: the lower lip seems to be pushed out a bit, but maybe thats just me. Love the red eyes.

    Goog - wow, supervillains HAVE to have some ladies around them... why didn't I think of that

    Villa - yours has one of the best moods this week, I really like. Would love to see the face a bit clearer.

    Adam Shumpert - great mood and colours. The feet seem a little unfinished, but that's probably due to lack of time. Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY by the way!!!

    wassermelone - nice colour palette, weapon and clothing, really digging it

    Vorace - great work

    MJ_Alcazar - you've really improved alot from when you first started doing CHOW. Yours could have used some more highlights coming from that lightning, especially on hair, face and upper body.

    renard_mxdf - that's probably the coolest weapon ever, I want one...

    gtgauvin - awesome pose

    Nether - I'd buy that comic... hell, it's just 0,00 €

    carnifex - damn, you put so much effort in it, or at least it seems like that. Don't really like that yellow glow, but the rest of it is damn cool.

    ryuloulou - wow, from the other thread, it seems like you really started pretty late, so you did one hell of a job for that short amount of time.


    Sorry that I didn't comment on everyone, everyone did really great, but there are so many entries and its getting really late here... And I had to look up so many words in the dictionary. CA is not only improving art skills, but also English skills...

    Holy cow, I actually made to ''almost got into poll''!

    But I aint giving up that easly! >D

    I voted for the most of the poll, cause they are all piece of artwork by itself.

    But I have to give kudos to animated one, because the concept is awesome!

    Everybody, see ya in next CHOW!

    Superb round, kudos for the concept daestwen. Lots of excellence on show, glad there's more than one vote 'cause no way could I narrow it down, though Stoat, Trevor, Wassermelone and Shanannigan are standouts for me.

    oh PS:
    im going to vote a little later
    just now realizing how few of these, even the ones i really like,
    are super villains
    not to be too picky but there are a lot of mild mannered characters in there
    or characters that dont seem even remotely villainous at all

    I voted for Adam ..... mainly because I felt that he stayed truest to the idea of a supervillain "self-portrait". Everyone else, although great work, seemed to reinvent themselves, taking their self-portraits in a whole other direction. He followed the directions and still produced a great piece of art - it has a level of realism and depth, and yet, subtley incorporates the comic book genre of comic-villainy. Nice!

    that was a pretty tough vote, i picked 3, in no particuler order:

    nether, ryuloulou, masque.

    I realy wish i could have voted for more, as there was some realy nice pieces this week, but there wasnt realy many strong super villain type characters, there was plenty of evil types, and a lot of Vengeance types, some angry types and there was even some pretty placid looking type characters, but not much super villains.

    I think you are putting too much emphasis on DC/Marvel spandex clad supervillains.

    You can't tell me that these two are not supervillains.

    I felt compelled to vote for quite a few people. Truly quality round indeed, wish I didn't have to miss the fun.

    People who got my vote:

    deadred: I have a general dislike of pandas, but your character design is so damn cool that I had to overcome my prejudice Great use of subtle colors, and nice composition all around. I would never mess with your villain alter ego

    dirkvandulmen
    : very surprised that you didn't get more votes than you have. Love the size contrast, and the burn holes on the laptop is just hilarious. I love your use of colors.

    JessiBean
    : I was drawn in by your image as soon as I laid my eyes on it. I feel like you've improved quite a bit on top of your already awesome skillz since the last time I saw your work. Excellent depth and colors, and the likeness is awesome.

    sentinel 13
    : I love the way you paint skin textures. There's the subtle glow you capture every time. The pose and lighting look very believable. I felt like you could have gotten crazier with the design, but as is it's still a very successful painting.

    ryuloulou
    : Your painting reminds me of old illustrations, and I love the style and the lighting you put your SP in. The composition has a lot of energy as well.

    Trever: That looks like it could have been a game concept. Love the colors, the pose, and the attitude. Sweet background treatment as well, adding to the character's story without overpowering him. Very nice piece!

    I made a monkey of myself ^^

    Lot's OK cool ideas , some are evil other are less evil , so that was the main thing that i was looking for in this round.

    I went with deadred just because of the evil panda idea , some how and evil panda with red rabid eyes looks more evil to me then someone with fire in his hands or magic...thingies. Another thing that i like is that she went for the animal thing , that's what i chose for my character two. & that's a huge panda.

    Vorace's character look's badass, but you cant really get of how much danger he can pose with that big thing.

    Then there's wassermelone with great colors and great story

    trevor - witch is very well done indeed , tones, values and everything , but no offense ,first thing that comes to mind is "Pyro form M-men" , very good design though.

    Clochette - like the idea , and that those colors that you used are hunting me in my works for almost a month now . But i think that you character just like mine is not meant to be evil all the way.

    All of the above would've gotten a vote ^^

    Did know that it would be a tough race. I had not enough time to finish my piece properly.

    Voted for

    Stoat: really evil!
    matjosh: liked the concept!
    Trevor: your villain is so relaxed after wreaking havoc!

    Ok, it was hard decision to make, but I've voted for: Adam Schumpert, Tugelbend, deadred, JessiBean, Vorace, Ryouloulou, John Shamburger, Demagyan, Wassermelone, Clochette

    My absolute favourite this round is Tugelbend, your style is funky. After him maybe deadred and then Demagyan.

    Adam Schumpert: the idea is not that original, but it's realised well in my opinion.
    Tugelbend: great stuff, kinda humorous also
    deadred: nice humor.
    JessiBean: everybody knows you rock, maybe she could be a little bit more obviously evil? And also the face is not exactly yours.
    Vorace: I like your style, and the icegun viking idea.
    Ryouloulou: Has very nice mood, a bit art noveu
    John Shamburger: I can't explain why I like it
    Demagyan: It's cool that he probably looks like you, looks like an ordinary guy, and his superpower can be kept in secret until he starts his evil deeds. Also for me the power is original. This way he is a very well thought out character in my opinion. And the picture is clean.
    Wassermelone: Although he doesn't look evil enough for me, the technique is very nice.
    Clochette: I just love your style, I can't help but vote.

    I will write later today about the rest of the guys/gals.

    I probably voted for too many people. I couldn't help it, in the future I may be more picky. I voted for the ones I really liked the most. I'm not going to post why I did or didn't vote for X. If you really want to hear my two cents, I'm always willing to give it. I would like make an Honorary vote for Clockwork Bunny's piece. I know why her painting didn't get in, but I still dug it.
