    Who would win this Thunderdome? Mssv Blk or Skywalker?

    I am a long time Lurker here. I saw yesterday that Android and James Zhang have joined Massive Blacks already solid concept team. Then I see all the books coming out from Church and Feng and the much admired Skywalker Ranch Team. Then, I had a really good idea. Ultimate Thunderdome!

    Would you two companies ever do a thunderdome against one another? Maybe you could have the proceeds go to charity or something.

    Here is a poll to decide who would win.

    Who are on the teams?

    I copied this list from the other thread and from a star wars website.

    Team Massive Black:

    El Coro... concept artist
    Smellybug....concept artist / sculpter
    Android...concept artist
    Noxizmad...concept artist
    James Zhang...concept artist
    Jason Manley...concept artist
    Wes9000...concept artist
    Insane Visions...concept artist
    Marko Djurdjevic...concept artist


    VS.

    Team Skywalker

    Ryan Church .... concept designer
    Dermot Power.... concept designer
    Sang Jun Lee.... concept designer
    Stian Dahlslett .... concept artist
    Alex Jaeger .... concept designer: JAK Films
    Iain McCaig .... concept artist
    Erik Tiemens .... concept design supervisor
    Danny Wagner .... concept modelmaker/sculptor
    Feng Zhu.... concept designer

    it depends upon the subject matter. I havent' seen the Skywalker folks do allot of the gross rated R style creatures that some of the folks at Massive Black have done. Either way it'd be a close fight and a fight that I wouldn't really see as a decisive victory. My love to CA and Massive Black and all but that fight would be pretty rough. If it were a street fight.. I'd say Massive Black.

    that WOULD be the ultimate thunderdome. Now as which one would win, there's just no telling. As for the gross stuff undertow mentionned, it's not like the Skywalker ranch people can spend time doing this kind of stuff on a regular basis. I think they'd love letting loose and will all the repressed stuff after months of following somewhat R rated guidelines it could spawn a lot of scary stuff.
    Realistically speaking, is there anyone left at the ranch ???

    I don't think Doug Chiang works there anymore. I heard he works for himself.

    LOL!! I didn't think anyone from Massv Blk would actually reply. Good. I think that both sides should anty up some cash and have the winnings go to an art or childrens charity. Both companies are near San Francisco right? I bet there is a worthy local charity who could use some proceeds. I'd throw in a hundred bucks just for the fun!

    glad I could amuse you James No offense to the Lucas guys but 99% of them aren't very intimidating. When you see guys like Marko and Andrew decked out in their rock star gear and put them next to guys like Doug Chiang and Feng who the $#!k do you think's going to win in a fight? lmao I had to do it man, I'm sorry.

    I know what will kill everyone.



    ANIME








    If this Thunderdome were to happen, I think just spotting 1 topic is gross injustice when the talents of these artists span all varieties of conceptual artwork.

    There will have to be categories.

    Background/location/sets, characters, creatures, mechanics, robotics..... Its just gross injustice to see....err....so little variety in artwork from these folks

    all pro thunderdome baby! come on jaymz, ask feng!!

    I agree that the territory is not neutral. Where else would I ask about such a thing than here? Thunderdome is Conceptart.org. This would be a fantastic battle of concept artists. I don't think it should happen anywhere else. I dream lots of these wonderful things. I also buy lottery tickets. One of these days, I will have a dream come true.

    The pros on this site always incite people to participate. I hope we can do the same for them.

    Lets get it on!

    You want it, too, guys! You want it, too! This would be the best Battle since...

    SCORPION vs. WASP

    As stated before: I would pay to see that. And I'm sure you Massive Black Guys will knock em out. Just look at those ridiculous Star Wars-ship designs . Naboo Fighter? Sissy boys...

    The massive black side of the force will prevail!

    ima have to root for the home team, massive black all the way, but probably only cause marko has that red leather jacket with the metal studs and electra painted on the back.
    I would pay lots of money to see that, lots and lots.

    Monster versus Robot!

    Now, ladies and gentleman, isn't "sissy boys" extreme? I think that Naboo City was elegant and beautiful. In fact, I strongly disagree here, the Skywalker boys have a poignant sophistication and clarity. It depends on a preference for an Idealistic world or Realistic world.

    I think a MONSTER from Massive versus a ROBOT from Skywalker would be the great contest. Doug Chiang would have led a great counterattack, were he still with the Skywalker crew.

    Man.. this would have been so cool! I can see it, both teams supposed to create a complete imaginary world over a limited time, with epic enviroments, vehicles (or mounts..) inhabitants of the world, flora and fauna. And of course: an epic battle versus two of the worlds races.

    Im rooting for the home team as well! (if it was a streetfight, massive black would have won, no matter what. Cuz there would be 20000 CA fanboys waiting, ready to jump in and help their heroes.

    (but then again, one should not underrestimate the army of starwars nerds..)

    //edit: WAITING, not wathing..
