    I think Matt Dixon or steak atron should've won. Prometheus ANJ's entry is good, but i hardly believe it is a girl at all. just because that monster has boobs doesnt mean its a girl. well anyway, just my 2 cents.

    later,

    well I haven't asked grooves, but on my end it was pretty close between the three of them, and all three are kickbutt artists. But we both leaned towards prom on this one. Last I heard there's no real prizes, and this is just for fun and community building/motivation.

    Hey meta, give us a new topic, I think I may have some time to actually enter this week!

    great entries everyone. congrats prom. i would have chose his too. boobs make it a girl for me
    prom, if you read this please send me a full blown file of yours, 300 dpi is preferred.

    ookay everyone. here is todays new topic. in order to have more people join this time i am going to leave it a bit more open.
    this weeks topic:
    battle scene.
    whatever you want goes this week with one exception, well two actually
    ABSOLUTELY NO FRIGGIN ORCS. lord of the rings is awesome, i agree, but there are more things that fight than elves and orcs. if i see any orcs you will be permanatly banned, well maybe not but i will campaign for it,so NO ORCS.
    secondly, there must be more than two figures. thats all, whether they are human or beast please have more than two. thats all.
    lets get it on

    ok orcs banned but elves still ok. got it. elves versus goblins then!!


    just kidding


    Ok, commentary time, sorry it took me so long to get to this, I wasn't able to get the time to to this right during the workday.

    Carnifex - wow buddy, I agree, that's one of the strongest things I've seen from you yet. Great work and keep pushing, you're improving fast!!! You might want to consider adding a setting into this piece though.. even if it fades off into the dark, it would still be nice to see the suggestion of a ground plane/background

    MattDixon - I love th sense of character of this one! Excellent sense of weight on her, and I love the shininess level to the skin. I think the upper left corner of the picture gets a little fuzzy, but this has a coool quality to it throughout.

    Prom - nice nice nice, I love the color scheme and the limited pallette. Took me a while to even notice you copy/pasted the two halves.. but now I see the mirroring it's hard NOT to notice it... Still, great piece.

    Nike - Nice atmosphere to your piece... my only real comment would be that it's painting in very neutral light... and you've got this cool looking stained glass window in the background that could be doing alot MORE to the light colors on the statue and the girl. It's there a little bit, but you could really push that aspect lots! Great job man, I think the face turned out well.

    Steak - I love her athletic physique, with them long narrow limbs and long fingers, that really gives her a nice sense of character. I also love the light source. Crit wise I think her butt doesn't really feel like it's sitting on the ground, it's missing a little pressure from her weight I think. Her left leg seems a little weird too. Nice stuff as usual man!

    Evren - rad colors man, she really looks radioactive... I know shes supposed to be immersed in a chemical bath/jar thing of light, but she might look cool with some shading...like almost that monochromatic xrayish shading you get with formaldahyde preserves? But, She's very graphic at the moment which might have been what you were going for. Very cool!

    Meta - nice start man, I really like the composition and the pose. I think maybe the light could play a bit more pronounced of a role on her skin but that's a excellent start!

    Young Paddy - Very moody man, she looks badass.. you can really see the photref in there... which is kinda cool because it gives it a nice lighting, but kinda looks odd too with various elements. Nice work!

    al-x - interesting piece, I dig the girl a lot but she looks a little grayish to me.. youd expect all that fire would be creating crazy shadows and light on her. The fire feels a littttttle photoshopy, but I don't mind it too much. I really like that deep red behind her though, that + fire + grays loooks nice all together!

    Tyboogie - Glad to see ya over here ty. This is by far the most stylish piece of the lot... youve got some really cool stuff going on with her skin, I like those glows and shininess to her... it really adds atmosphere. The red coils kinda look odd because they're not reacting to the light as much.. but that gives it a strange stylish look to it too. cool stuff.


    Ok everyone,that was some kickbutt work. I hope i didnt forget anyone. I'm stepping down from judging and am gonna try and participate this week. This is a great idea meta, I'm glad to see the Laquinta challenge lives on!

    Meta thats great !! yay us !!

    thank you all for the kind words on the first challenge !

    i like the second rounds entries alot !

    Here comes some thoughts, take them or leave them


    Nike : your looks good, but i get the feeling of that it lacks the sence of "space"... i get the feeling of that its too flat. You could check some photos or something for the face because around the cheeks and eye on the left side is off, i think you see too much of it.. But, its a very nice picture and clever way of solwing the challenge !

    Tyboogie : very nice colors, but it looks like it could use some more work on the brushes, or edges so to speak. nicely framed and pleasant for the eye.

    al-x : nice idea and well executed, my suggestion would be to juice up the colors alittle so you get that intence heat feeling. Good work non the less !

    young paddy1 : Nice picture ! i like the feeling of it! But some parts look too much like copypaste, hmm, you havent worked parts into the picture enough (blend). cool stuff !

    metaphysiks : as you said, its unfinnished, but it looks like a good start ! you should finnih it !

    Jack Frost : Very nice idea ! what is it inside of the tube? if she isnt floating in air in there you should maybe try to give her some volume fog next time you would draw something similar.. try to find some underwater pictures and you'll see how stuff fades away when you view it beneath the surface. Great idea and a nice picture !

    steak-tron : i think it was a good idea, you didnt fall short, but my critique would be about the colors, for me they look alittle too muddy. I like her pose alot and her face !

    Prometheus|ANJ : Nice picture and congrats on the win ! But i dont like the fact that it looks too mcuh like its mirrord, but its still a nice piece !

    Matt Dixon : Nice picture !! i like hte painterly feel of it ! but in my opinion her face is off, is it in a unatural angle/placement ? i dont know, but i think the head is wrong.. i like the colors alot !

    Carnifex : Nice image, i cant remember your stuff but according to others you have progressed alot, that is always cool ! Next time maybe you should think about the position and frame for your picture, now this one has alot of "dead" areas, like black or darkred thats added just to fill the canvas. try to give the viewer a feeling by placing her in a more interesting position on the canvas and angle. Looks great and i like the picture, just some things to think about until the next one.

    Glad you guys liked it! I know I cheapoed out with the mirror thing, I did the same on some earlier Gigerish pics I did. It's a fun and fast way to paint. I remember in deluxe paint you could paint in various symetry modes. I wish PS had something like that.

    I'm afraid it was painted in very low rez, the web version is 66% of the original I think. What do you need the high rez for?

    I actually started a battlescene pic but it developed into something else...

    Hey, Hurricane!
    While this both wails and rocks, the straight columns of smoke rising from the dragon really take away from the motion of the action. It's as if everyone is posing for you (if they did, then it's all cool), vice the midst of a battle.

    Still, this is amazing.

    hi everyone.
    Good wi-i-p s carnifex and metaphysics, great dragon, hurricane!
    My only crit is that the piece is looking a bit "static".

    I'm sorry I can't participate this week, I have 2 very tough exams on tuesday, I'm a bit screwed

    Cu next week!

    you're gonna have to wait some more for me to post the pic...i dunno how the time limits are,but for me sunday is over in 1 hour...though i guess it's not too much of a problem if i post in about.....20 hours,is it?
    i mean for me that's monday evening then,but for you...?
    i haven't had time to make something more out of the pic yet,so forgive me.

    edit: sorry to hear that meta. i was really looking forward to your finished piece. the wip had real depth that kinda sucked me into it. it's a shame it doesn't get finished.(or will it?)

    sorry but i can't stop thinking they look like they're gonna have a sex orgy. most of all because the dude in his armpit seems like he's grinning.
    and somehow...just the pose the main character is in,and the way the dude behind him pinches his hips.
    i'm soon up with mine,wait alittle more.

    argh damnshitassfuckgoddammitburninhellmotherfuckingsuc kershitdrawing!
    i can't find enough swear words for my frustration! first i couldn't flesh out the drawing itself in any better way,and now i couldn't find any matching colours! i started three attempts at colouring it,but each of them turned out shitty. i couldn't find the colour sheme i wanted and everything seemed rushed. so i'm just leaving this shit as my final entry for this week.

    *sigh* hopefully i'm leaving something better next time. this time it was all talk and nothing behind. sorry guys. i feel damned.

    hey guys. the winner was hurricane this week. come on guys. lets give this guy a challenge. i will be at work today at 7 so i am posting the topic now.
    this week you will design an environment. simple characters will be placed for scale or if you want go nuts but the environment is the focus.
    you must design a bustling commercial site in a city. use reference do whatever but design the busiest part of a city. lets make some real nice art guys. imagine your very own new york.
    go for it
