    USA Thunderdome (West vs East)

    Time for a rumble in the states.

    Alaska and Hawaii included in the WC.


    The first rule, DEADLINES WILL BE FINAL. No exceptions.

    The first step is to gather a list of artists from the West Coast wanting to participate. Reply to this thread to be added to the list. Beginning on the 18th, the East Coast artists will begin challenging (its not too late for WC artists to get in, but the sooner the better, you know?). Challenges will be acceptable until the 21st. At midnight on the 21st PST, the competition begins, challenges end, and you will have 3 weeks to complete your challenge, ending on the 12th at midnight PST. If you don't have a match on the 21st, you are not able to participate, I am sorry. There will be an extra week on this one due to the holidays, and deadlines being FINAL. If your entry arrives at 12:01 on the 13th, I hate to be a bastard, but no dice. You've been warned.

    Here's how it works. We'll post the names of the West Coast artists looking to be challenged by an artist from the East Coast. You East dudes and ladies look through and pick an opponent of similar skill. You call them out, and set the perameters of your challenge.



    The battles will be judged by 5 judges (not in the US), so far including:
    -Joachim
    -Molly
    -lowpolymatt
    -Matt Dixon
    -Rusty


    Each battle is worth 1 point, with the total number of battles being the total number of points available. Team that scores the most points wins.

    PLEASE READ THIS IS IMPORTANT. I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND 4 HOURS RESIZING AND RENAMING EVERYONES WORK.
    Please send finished works to michael@mlentz.com with the subject "(CA name) USATD Entry". Please name the file with your name (ex: USATD_jetpack42.jpg) so I can arrange the proper contestants against each other easily. Please have them reduced to 72dpi, and around screen size. If they are greater then 120k, I will not post them. Also, when sending your finished image, include the subject description.

    To see the work we did in the previous thunderdomes, go here:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=30693

    comments, questions, and suggestions welcome as always.

    Let's get it on! East Coast artists, where you at?

    The timing Kind of sucks but I'd feel bad if I was left out of this one. I'm in.

    I'm gonna be gone for the last week of this context (3rd-12th), but I'll be damned if I'm gonna let another one of these go by without me giving it a shot. So count me in (and don't hurt me too bad, East Coast).

    Oh yeah, and I suppose a link to my art would help prospective challengers.

    Sweet. Don't know if I'll have the time to do it, but will make a decision in the next few days. Medical legal work is keeping me busy right now.

    BTW - next Thunderdome: Presidential Election 2004: The Electoral College States Showdown - RED versus BLUE recall smackdown - winner takes the House.

    That'd be cool.
    Cheers,
    Dave

    I don't think the timing is ideal for anyone, myself included (im leaving for Seattle for the first week of the competition) but if I don't get her rolling now, it wont happen until almost February.

    No time like the present!

    This is going to be so fun, I have been waiting for something like this for awhile. But what happens if we dont have an even amount of players on each side?

    It's a good thing this site is predicated on artistic merit, and not reading comprehension.

    OK OK Haha. You know, reading takes a great deal of time, so adding comprehension on top of it makes it seriously impractical... who has time for all that? I got crap to draw!

    I get it: The East Coasters wait till all the Left-Coasters have chimed in, then we swoop in and challenge. Sounds groovy.

    I'll be quiet now.
