This was a thunderdome between Craig Houghton, Thebluepuppy, JAGrello, and Myself. The due date was last night, and Puppy and Craig were the only one to actually have theirs in on time. Ionic (Grello) and I posted ours sometime this morning. As this was the first thunderdome of it's type (in which we were involved) and seeing as how I made the thread in the first place, I figured our entries should be seen anyway. They were only a few hours late.
You can find the challenge thread here. Long story short, we figured what with us all being relatively close in age, we wanted to start the process of shaking our newbie labels, as we approach college.
Anyway, without any further rambling, here they are, in order of entry:

Arrival of the Space Kittens
Professor M and his assistant successfully managed to open a hole to another time and space, but they never expected kittens, armed space kittens.

It's late, but here it is:
Alright, the concept here was that there was something along the lines of a group of pilots named space kittens. This would be their commanding officer, I guess. I had another one started, but scrapped it for this one. I finished the whole thing tonight. Also, I wanted to be vague about the kitten aspect of the concept.
Let's get started on the next one.
Good job everyone, and We'll get to work on the next one. Hopefully we can male this a bi-weekly event maybe?

sorry guys but i dont think theres any contest. Paul youve got it in the bag.
JA i really liked your but i have to say i think Paul has this one in the bag.
If i shoot the J then its "Good"
please hit up the SKETCHBOOK
oop, no contest here, though to be fair, i like the color of the second one and the speed paint style of the third one. I'm afraid I don't quite understand the first one.
good job guys.
my psychic makeup is all over the place
Good competition guys. Anyone up for another one? This was pretty fun.
Craig, I like your concept the best, I have to say, although the post apocalyptic stuff always tickles my fancy, Chad.
Also, ionic, I would have loved to see you finish up your first one. It looks really promising still.
I posted mine on some other forums, and it got kinda ripped apart, so I know what to change in the future.
Anyway, lemme know if anyone's interested in another one. We should try to get some more people in on it as well.
i voted for craig beceause....it is original.
gj to the others it is fantastic
a sketchbook that commited is owned by me. you will not fulfill your destiny by clicking it, but...maybe that it'll help you avoid brain cancer. hmm hmm..
Craig - I understand nothing.
thebluepuppy - My vote. Nice colours, but head is streched, also the bear
JAGrello - I have seen that short time ago.
Paul - nice technique, but It didnt touch me.
PAUL, whenever I copy and paste, or import, a shape from Illustrator into Photoshop, the shapes get cropped. It looks like you ran into the same problem with your big circle. You can do a cheap workaround if you make smaller shapes at the borders or outside your main shape, then these can be easily erased after the whole thing is rasterized.
Just an idea so you don't get that flatness at the top of the circle.
everyone did an awesome job on these.kudos to all.
