    Chow #009 - Voting: A Boy, A Claus, And An Elf - MULTIPLE VOTES ALLOWED

    You may now vote for as many entries as you like
    ________________________
    Round #009
    A BOY, A CLAUS, AND AN ELF

    Timmy’s world has been destroyed.

    Timmy won the world wide competition for the much coveted trip to Santa’s Workshop. His entry, like the billions of other entries from the world over, was why he wanted peace on earth, what he’d do if he were the President of the United Nations, and why wired hair dachshunds are the best dogs in the world.

    Upon arriving at the North Pole, Timmy found that “Santa’s Workshop” was, in fact, an industrial wasteland of name brand products being mass produced by megalithic multinational merchandising subsidiary companies handed no-bid contracts by Santa, Inc. Items "crafted" in Santa’s sweatshops hadn’t seen native workers in years, the workforce having either been imported from warmer regions or, in most cases simply outsourced. The native elf population was all but forgotten, disenfranchised and living in hovels, getting drunk on eggnog and selling black market “candy” canes just to survive on the seedier edges society. Santa’s Village, the sprawling metropolis of loose morals, iffy ethics, high prices, and merrily twinkling Christmas lights, loomed over all.

    Santa had sold out.
    --------
    Chose one, two or all three characters:

    1. Santa the Sell Out
    2. Timmy, just off the plane.
    3. A displaced Elf worker.

    I was 3 minutes late finishing so my entry didn't get in.
    Here's mine. Rushed the background to try and make it in on time. I must have mixed up the CoW deadline with the Chows. Anyway, I am pretty new to conceptart, and this is my first Weekly contribution so C&C is welcome. Everyone else did amazing work for this topic.

    thanks for the votes everyone!

    glad you enjoy this one.
    it feels nice to be appreciated.

    this round my vote goes to... no one.
    sorry people.
    very nice works, but that`s about it.

    I went with Tiegrob's - Great expression and line quality.

    Everybody else did great. Glad you found the time to do this during such a busy time of the year. (In some parts of the world).

    Have a good one all.

    although I dont quite like multiple votes (too unclear) I HAD to vote for romance and chuck,mate, because of the flawless execution, the ideas and the fact that each of them chose a different character...

    great works, all of ya!

    cheers,
    Etienne

    Ahhh Oregano you should really take mine out of poll if that is possible. Not that it will get any votes, but it is super unfinished. I had a new baby nephew born and my birthday yesterday to deal with, and xmas on top of that! AHHH! Craziness ensues.

    I'm gonna have to go with Romance on this one, and Chuck,mate as well. Both rendered very nicely. I like the cool "seedy" colors going on in Romance's piece and the warmer tones go well with Chuck's money-grubbin' Santa.

    Not a lot of participants this week... must've been crazy for a lot of people

    Merry xmas and all that - if you're into that sort of thing ;P

    Vote goes to Chuck. But I thought Flip, Azrael and Trollboy caught Santa's mood really well too. Zeph, Fez and Romance's elves were wicked.

    I'm actually kinda disappointed no one thought of an array of clocks with the time tuned to the countries that were being outsourced to the most (ie China, Vietnam, Pakistan and so on) behind Santa in his office space.

    Great job everyone. Couldn't make this one on time....the lure of sushi buffet was too great.

    Chuck, mate and fes got my votes. Very well executed, and the Santas look satisfyingly nasty.

    bumskee - you never give up on me do you? Next time.

    And thanks for all the votes!

    What's everyone think of this multiple voting thing? I'm definitely not a fan. I looked at the way the votes were panning out, and ultimately decided I couldn't vote at all. Personally, I have no problem just biting the bullet and making a decision--it's not life or death afterall. But to just register one vote, I suddenly felt like I was doing an injustice to just inflate one artist's count when others seemed to be spreading votes around to practically everyone. It just seems like such a chaotic system with a seemingly infinite number of potential votes out there for a finite number of voters. I don't know, I'm probably the only one who handled the problem by simply abstaining, but I just personally can't cast a vote in a system like this...there's just something about it that is completely contrary to my mind.
