    Rascar Capac definately got my vote. Close call though, this has gotten pretty competitive.

    Rascar Capac pour moi. I like the freshness and life in it, but there's some other top ones here too. Chuck Mate, Bumskee et al. Cool work chaps and chapesses!

    i think Rascar Capac had the best piece conceptually, and Chuck,mate had the best executed piece within the parameters of the assignment, but i went with bumskee becasue i can't get over that face. It tottally hypnotized me.

    My choices were down with bumskee and masque. In the end, the energy to bumskee's won me over

    I voted for Rascar Capac. I love the old-photo atmosphere, the face, the composition and the rendering. FridayEve also created a powerful character, and I also considered Jska, Masque, and Bumskee.

    I voted for Masque's piece. Needs more blood though

    Rascar, Bumskee, FridayEve and Jska were my other favourites. But that doesn't mean everyone else didn't do a good job!! This one should be pretty tough for voters.

    thanks people.
    my vote goes to rascar capac, after a long thinking.
    though the face is not good (and i say that as oppose to other faces in this round, again - my opinion only),
    the rest is awsome, and really inspiring.

    a job well done all the rest.
    keep it up!

    Close call between FridayEve and Rascar.
    But Eve won. The face in Rascar's piece has less drama on it than Eve's face.
    But if I had two votes...

    I voted for Masque's piece. It really feels like a classic oil painting.

    The other two pieces that caught my attention were Rascar Capac and FridayEve. Rascar has a wicked cool speedpaint approach to his piece that I really liked and FridayEve's soldier has a great expression on his face.

    Very tough call between Oregano and bumskee, but I went with bumskee's for the same reason as AmishCommy..that face is magnetic. And bumskee also get's points for going with the least obvious color scheme!

    chuck,mate - you've seriously done a splendid job on this entry with the marriage of the backdrop depicting location but blending it nicely as 'subtle noise/texture'. pose, features, color and uniform are all great.
    great entries all!
    cheers!

    Friday eve got my vote, tons of emotion, well done painting.

    I would have picked Masque as a runner up. Just like the way everything was handled.
