oops, nearly forgot,
One from Vyle, for fun!
Blobs Monster.. My favorite.. That thing is just sick.
Everyone...well done on a grand set of pieces...just fantastic again...
Poshspice...that is just incredible...fantastic..just brilliant...love it!
Molly, you got that one bang on!
Msync....you n sketch have a close run one there...like your painterly style.
MattD...I should've known yours would be fantastic..
YoungPaddy.....excellent work there...
You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?
My god! This is some absolutely incredible stuff!!
And to whoever did that zepplin captain picture...please tell her to chart a coarse for my house next...she's hawt hawt hawt!!!!

Holy Sh*t You guys are just fantastic. Poshspice, I'm in love...that piece is just awesome. How long did you spend on that? I'd love to see a WIP or tutorial, but we're probably not that fortunate. Also, the lowpolymatt vs. benzo contest looks to be a close one. I love how both of them incorporated the chosen themes into their pieces...whoever loses this one got robbed! Molly, DarkMatter, and sketchling also put together some very impressive pieces. Great job everyone!
HOOOOOLLLYYYY SHIT!! Poshspice is forever "the man" on my list for doing that psudo nazi chick with the zeplins . THat is one of the hottest girls i have ever seen.
Much respect to you sir.
BLAST ON YOU!
Whoa! Great stuff all!
Amazing work, everyone. What a fun challenge, and so many amazing pieces!! I'm proud to even be a participant, and I've really enjoyed reviewing all the work! Thanks Cartoonfox and Molly for organizing, and thanks Matt for hosting!!

Holy crap, this is too cool, 2 great T-domes in 2 days, kind of sensory overload but who cares!!!! Great stuff guys! Can't wait to see the rest of the entries.
Stand outs so far:
The Bird- "Meat Wagon" Great sketches, great execution, very excited about this one.
Vyle- Not one but 2, you and dirty c seemed to take a similar color approach, tough competition, I think I might like the second one better but they're both great and you had great sketches too. This looks like it would be a great story, something like "Iron Giant".
Dirty c- Nice, funny actually
Nero- Great drawing
Blobs- Crazy monster, looks like an angry attacking orifice
Darkmatter - Nice alien pet combo, kind of old school pulp cover
Matt Dixon- Red Sonja??? or it's a real person out of history? Nice
Poshspice vs Nimrod - Really tough competition, great pieces both of you.
Nimrod- great drawing , love the ornateness of the armor, would this guy live in just as detailed kind of world?? I would love to see that.
Posh- Alistair, great piece! Man I want to meet your models for these things! Beautiful women, nice attention to detail, love the background. You should be painting royalty cause they have a very regal feeling to them or old school portrait. Amazing rendering skills! If I was to say anything I'd say it's sort of similar to your last piece and I'm not sure about a warrior using her sword like that. Still amazing though. Can't believe I was competing against you last time...so out of my league.
Lowpolymatt vs Benzo- Another good one.
Lowpolymatt- I think yours is one if not my favorite composition of the bunch, very dynamic and I love your choice of colors, kind of reminds me of a digital version of a N.C. Wyeth piece. very nice.
Benzo - Another interesting composition choice, reminds me of crime scene photos.
Great Job all!!! Inspiring ,Inspiring, Inspiring.
Edit: Wow, Molly I missed yours somehow in the first go around, great job. Great character and great enviroment.

Hey Great job everybody! Some really nice stuff there!
(scampers over to Web Mail)
'don't believe everything you think.'
Aw man. Seeing some kickass stuff here. Way to go everyone. This has certainly been fun.
Molly-I really like the tornado guy. Man, I'm nervous about the outcome. Good luck everyone.
Fantastic work all! I love the fact that UK has continued on in tdome land and Dallas - mad props to ya'll. Poshspice - where do you find the time to render up like that? Your last tdome was slick as all get out, and this one trumps it!
Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

Fantastic work everyone.
Im hard pushed to name a favourite although I've a slight bias towards my husbands !
Well done to both sides...can't wait to see what the judges thought !
Congrats to everyone who managed to get their work in, lots of really great stuff!! I hope some of you guys who missed the deadline get yer pics up here for us to check out, I know both DH and Bobo had some cool stuff in the works...
Damn guys! Some top notch work all around! Looks like people need some classes in time management... or just deadlines Same as our TDome.
Vyle: Both of yours rock! Though I actually like the second one more I think, but I don't know... whatever, they both kick ass!
Benzo: Great angle; strong simple composition... well done! WELL done!
Poshspice vs. Nimrod: Great pieces both of you! I love color and b&w... great stuff.
Blobs: awesome creature! I'm a sucker for anything with a mouth in its stomach.
Molly: Hot damn that's hott! great sense of action, wind whirling, shit flying everywhere!! WHOOOOA!
MSync: Great texture and a wonderful mood. I love the color choices; well done!
Great jobs all around, those were just the few that really popped out for me. Props to everyone.

This reminds me of looking at all the science fiction and fantasy paperbacks at the mall bookstores!
Nice job by everyone!

Holy shit...TheBird you nutty fuitcake that is awesome, must gain your knowledgable coloring technique, that's the coloring style i want, give me tutorials......
Molly - Love that tornado I can see it hitting the light poles, it's so real I can feel the wind pushing up against me, Feel like i'm actually there
Poshspice - Damn she's hottttt, you my friend (I can call you that right?) have a very detailed coloring, that's awesome.
DavetheOriginal - AHHHH NICE! That kicks ass man, I love your composition.
DarkMatter - Whoa, I love it!!

I really hope someone vs. new york state soon, I want to do something so bad!! Good luck to everyones pieces.
I agree , one of my favorites.Originally Posted by Madoliane
Sok N Wett: Thanks buddy. I'm just about to go over to the Seattle TDome and check out yours!
Lowpolymatt vs Benzo: I really like what both of you have done here. Nicely stylised.
Poshspice: That is just superb. My favourite entry. It's sort of like, what if Britney Spears was a nazi...
Sketchling vs MSync: Both great entries. I love the halo she's wearing Kim.
dirty_c vs Vyle: Glad to see that the picture reads okay now Chris, good work. Vyle, those are some gorgeous colours.
Molly: Whoa! Did you make the right choice with that elemental or what? Well done!
TheBird: That really made me laugh. Amazingly handled as well.
Darkmatter, Matt Dixon: I thought your two images were competing for a minute! Great stuff from both of you.
Blobs and Nero's master: Great monsters, nicely done.
Anyone I've missed, sorry for not leaving a comment, I've only just woken up from a heavy night! It's nothing personal, everything here has shown a lot of skill. Well done.
Bojee - Thanks man, glad you like it! I had a real hard time getting something that I was happy with, something that had all 3 elements of the subject in it and something that worked contextually...I also wanted it to be 'based' on historical facts rather than being pure fantasy....The 'dark Ages' grounded me on that one...adding in the crescents and the worm were more incidental. I had a lot of fun with colour because I got a bit fed up of the same old palletes...and as for the composition....that fell out of just doing it...
Bobotheseal - Holy F**k...you're going to give Mr MattD a real run for his money there!
Madoliane - Thanks baby! *smile*
You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?
There really is some fantastic work here!!
I wanna thank Molly and Cartoon Fox for starting all this up and Matt for hosting the images!!
Dark Horizon.. you've gotta post yours! I don't wanna win by default when I know that you should be kicking my ass all over the place!!
Kudos to all
