    I think this was judged very well.. too many very nice pieces to choose from, that's for sure. Some that really stood out for me (other than those who won.. and those stood out for sure) were mcotie's, Lono's, Hedrus', Jason's, brasshorsekillers, Batterram's.. to name just a few (which is hard to do because I am sure I've left out some damn fine submissions). I think everybody did a great job! Congratz to the winners and good job to the rest

    Ok.. my vote would go as follows:

    1. Tie between the two of andrews posts: His third entry and the last post, the wheeled monstrosity.

    2. Nivbed's frost dogs.

    3. Mcoties Badass hellhounds.

    Everyone did a killer job though, congrats to the winners!

    i think there were a lot of really good pieces from both sides. on the concept side i think the strongest were (of course) andrews, jasons, mcnally, mcotie, and lono. these are all very strong pieces, and they are really solid creature concepts. i think they would be able to hold out very well in battle.

    mcoties war dogs are fast and fierce, and seem they could slip in and out of battle before the other side knew what hit them.

    both jasons and andrews pieces are hard hitters. they are big and grotesque, and capable of mass destruction. i think they would represent the heavy assault team.

    lonos creature is very unique, and a very cool idea. although it may suffer in the battle department due to its lack of maneuverability and its small attack range (blind spots to the sides and back)

    mcnallys is also very cool. seems like it would have a wide range of attack abilities and speed.

    i also think otis' creature is a strong contender with the cybernetic enhanced soldier.

    for the eatpoo side i think there are just as many good pieces. but i also think there were a lot of people who didnt really take it seriously. many of their creatures are just not strong enough for a war.
    some of the strong pieces i thought were from prometheus, brasshorse, niv, splif, noxizmad, and joachim. most of their strong creatures are also very big in size.

    prometheus' is a very cool creature concept and looks to combine speed with strength.

    joachims abomination is very nice, but may suffer in speed.
    brasshorses is one of their strong hitters. it has size, speed, strength, and ferociousness.

    splifs is very original and huge in size. i think it could wreak havoc on the field.

    noxs halloween heavy unit is just that. i dont think much could withstand a full assault from a group of these.

    niv also has very unique creatures. the wolf is another giant assault unit that could pose a huge problem for the opposing army.

    i went over both sides very quickly, and sorry for leaving out the other people, but i found these to be the strongest of each army, in concept, originality, craftsmanship, and just the ability i think it would have in combat. hopefully i was not too hard on anyone and i apologize if i was. i am not sure of who the winner will be, it seems to be a very tight race. eatpoo may have the size advantage, but i think concept might have a larger amount of good creatures.

    Fantastic effort by all. I agree Noximads? was the pic that drew the eatpooers over the line. Imagine his halloween robot knockin on your door asking for candy....!

    Androids work was simply prolific (how does he do it?) and beautifully detailed.

    I think everyone who entered should get a door prize or certificate and the winners maybe should get something else for their work...whaddya think?

    overall i enjoyed looking at these pieces and many of them were rendered very well only thing i see too much of ...though it's not an easy thing to break away from in designing a creature is the humanoid/animal and mechanic look.
    more later, must work, stupid professors giving us two weeks homework

    yeah, was a nice contest and a good battle.

    both armies have fought well, eatpoo featured the best overall army while we featured the best individual monster, so everyone kinda won.

    when i speak for myself, i can say i pulled some experience out of it in terms of handling deadlines and not getting too much time inbetween painting sessions.

    when's the next one?

    Congratulations to the winners! Well deserved. Seeing the best from everyone really is a great humbling experience-- it's awesome to see what everyone pours out of themselves, how they translate the description, the mood and actions portrayed, the techniques and styles used. This really pushes me to try harder the next time. I hope this was a great learning process for everyone else as it was for me. If so, we truly have won the war!!!

    Hmmm...i am a little bit disappointed about the presentation of the winners.

    There were about 60 members total, who entered the contest. And the announcement is just about the 3 winners, without any pictures and no c&c to the rest...

    We have no overview of all entries, so we have to hop from one forum to the other to see which image someones talking about...very annoying...

    But since we are all dedicated members, it's also up to us to improve the level of the forums and support the admins...

    That's why i made a compliation of all contenders...i took every image from the td-finished-entries-threads from both forums..., so if there is one missing, don't blame me

    conceptart-army

    Thunderdome Round 3 Discussion...the winners etc...

    eatpoo-army

    Thunderdome Round 3 Discussion...the winners etc...

    Now everybody can comment the pics with looking at the thumbnails...i guess we all know the highres-versions, so it's not bad if you can't see the details...it's just an overview to make the c&c's easier, so everyone can find the image, someone's talking about...

    To the admins: Maybe you want to copy this images to a new thread...don't know if this is the right place...?

    I don't understand why sabotage11's pic is in third place...mcotie's mutt's are better in composition, technique and idea. As both pieces are about "dogs-of-war" you can judge them by comparison...

    My favs from ca:

    aleksi: Great atmosphere...berzerker ready to explode!

    android (with 5 the best): It's our army in the army. Considering them as special forces units...

    die kreuzwortraetsel: I don't know, it just looks cool...i like it very much!

    hedrus: The most complex creature and lineart. I appreciate your hard work...

    jasonmanley: I love the atmosphere, technique and perspective. But the creature itself and it's specifics are not easy to spot (right word?)

    lono: A REAL street-warrior. I watched your wip in your thread.

    mcotie: if sabotage11's mutts are third, yours are in 2,5th place

    negativespace: Don't know, why nobody mentioned your work...i really like it. Very cool ideas and also your technique...still wondering, why nobody said anything...

    oglzogl: Your second entry is very unique...you are special here

    otis: As i said before...as from nowhere...considering that you've made this piece in one hour, this one is the best in speed-thunderdome#3-contest...superb!

    smeagol71: I really like your lineart, but as you mentioned yourself, the coloured version is not that good...bummer...

    sparth: Great as usual...what can i say...maybe this: :thumbsup:


    my favs from ep:

    brasshorsekiller: This was one of the first cool pieces which entered the thunderdome...great work! Sorry, i forgot the name of your partner for this one...

    joachim: Disgusting...AND love it

    ken: Same thing like i said to negativespace! This one rocks for me!

    nivbed: This mutts are amazing work...but how comes that the second (squidbitch) is really behind the level of your first entry?

    noxizmad: Yeah...i agree to the judge's decision!

    prometheus: As far as i saw, you've got your own monster-army...Did you draw all this pieces just for td3? Killer...

    spliff: I love the idea...i was for the same idea, but then changed my mind...but this one is set high in my rankings! :thumbsup: One of the best ideas in my eyes!

    synj: I love comics...and yours is the only one in comicstyle! Cool Butt



    I would love to make a voting for the next thunderdome-contest-idea...and i would like to see a little more detailed presentation of the winners for the next round...finally i want apologize for my english...

    :beer: :chug:
