    Cow C.O.W. - #001: Mascot - VOTING - SECOND BALLOT!

    Jull's and Matt Dixon's images got both 39 votes...so we have to make another vote between this 2...

    TOPIC:
    Mascot for COW (Creature-Of-The-Week) Activity

    VOTE!



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Jull:


    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot - VOTING - SECOND BALLOT!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------








    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Matt Dixon:
    concept: Here she is - the CA.org Critique Cow.
    Armed with the 'Crit Cleaver' in one hand ( +2 versus fragile artist's egos with an instant death effect against photo paintovers ) and the 'Totem of Shutyeryapandpractise' in the other, she wanders the boards in search of artwork to battle. Those who succumb must suck on the teats of wisdom. Mmm...creamy! She's a bad-tempered bitch at the best of times...

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot - VOTING - SECOND BALLOT!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------






    The Poll will be closed Monday evening, because most members are visiting the forum over the weekend!

    Matt Get's My Nod

    I voted for Matt. Jull's is great and really works well, but i just went with a gut feeling on this. The Cow has such character, and a fantastic expression on his face. I think it is a phenomenal rendering. The only thing I think is that (to make it more "mascotty") we will probably want to use a version of just the character without the background.

    Hey, can I be the first to suggest that we name him "Scotty" as in the word "mascotty" that I just used up there?

    -Eric

    I have to agree with Arteric.

    The expression that the cow has along with the small details on her add alot to the character. If she is picked, I think with just having the face would be great as a mascot.

    I'm sticking to my original vote. As technically impressive as Matt Dixon's is I still have a soft spot for simplicity. Go Jull!!!

    people, just look how humble and what great members and artists this two guys are....i just got one pm from each:

    Matt Dixon's pm:
    "Heh. I see you've already started a new poll, but Jull's is a better mascot than mine. If it makes things easier, I'll take mine out of the running and we'll just use Jull's?"

    Jull's pm:
    "I think Matt will win this time, but if we end in draw again, just let me break the draw and let Matt win"


    It makes me cry to see these things on this forum...it's so gentle and sweet...

    Well, if someone does a happy feel good piece, or it just rocks, they get: Jull's

    If someone does something that is cool, but needs work, they get: Matt's Mad Cow - it's kind of like getting a weiner award for something that *should* have been cool, but got flubbed because someone didn't go all the way, cut corners or just screwed up.

    Or, we could turn it around the other way, too.

    oh no...i don't want to declare one for the "good" entries and one for the "bad" entries...this would be unfair, since both images are great, but i know what you mean...

    The mascot won't be used in this way anyway...i don't need another full-time-job

    Use for the mascot mainly is as a kind of banner on the top post of every C.O.W.-related thread (like the one currently, which is only a placeholder)...there is another idea at the moment what we'll do with the mascot, but this you will see when we know which one it is actually...

    Okay, so much for *that* grand idea

    How about just rotating them - alternate every other week? Keep it simple.

    Bottom line; both are excellent, light-hearted, fun and beautifully executed, so just use them both and don't stress it?

    gotta run.
    Cheers,
    ~Shane

    If they are tied again, I think Fozzy should just flip a coin.

    A She???

    Is Matt's Cow a "she"? What, I take my vote back!!!! I retract! A "she"!!! Well, I never....

    OK, all kidding aside, maybe I could change the name to "Mascotti"... with an "I", cause I have heard some girls are named scotti but spell it with an "I"... but now that I see it, I think the word looks like some pasta dish.

    Should we choose a name for the character? Just wondering about input on this.

    -Eric

    Between Jull and Matt, Mr. Dixon's nasty old cow got my vote. I think the desciption won me over as much as the impressive artwork itself. It has spunk and reminds me of my revolting history teacher in HS, one dissaproving look from her, and you'll probably be needing a new pair of pants.

    Wooo!! It took me long time to decide!! I think mascot should be qute
    luckbringers that gives at least me good vibes and not deathbringers, but an
    instant death effect against photo paintovers, man that made it impossible to
    decide using that criteria.
    Anyway in the end I think Julls serves the mascot purpose better some of my
    reasons are:

    * I think it will be easier to fit in different "places"
    * It's not a cow
    * the great placement of "CA.org" which Matt has not

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    I have to say Jull's works better as a logo-style piece. But I love Matt's piece so much. I think it's witty and strong. I think that if it was just the character without the background it would work perfect. I am voting for Matt's...

    This poll is closed...it is 35:35 currently...if we continued the poll maybe one would have win with 1 vote more...1 hour more and the other entry would have get 1 vote more...

    So i decided to make them both winners as you can see in the winner-gallery now...

    That means - since the topic was mascot - we have 2 mascots...

    Matt's C.O.W. will be used as the "banner" or "title" in every C.O.W.-related thread...

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot - VOTING - SECOND BALLOT!






    Jull's C.O.W. will be used as an icon for every C.O.W.-thread so people can recognize the content of the thread PLUS jull's C.O.W. will be used as a special icon for the winners of each cow-round...we'll put it next to the winners nick name, so he will be recognized as a winner of a cow-round...for every winning-piece he will get a star added to his icon...so former champions shouldn't lose interest in participating for coming rounds...there's always a star to win

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot - VOTING - SECOND BALLOT!




    I hope this does justice to both entries....we couldn't let one lose could we?

    Cow

    Yay!!

    great Job all three of you! (Jull, Matt & Frazzled Bear, er..., I mean Fozzy!)

    So, the Jull Llama can only be used by winners? I saw it in the message icons this morning before I saw this thread and used on another thread.... is that okay? I mean, Matts Mad Cow isn't going to come and get me or anything, right?

    Right?


    Guys? Hello?
