Official Last Man Standing Website: Round 2
271 contenders over 4 rounds. 396 new pieces of artwork. 1 winner. And not one 1-on-1 battle.
The event will be ran as it was last time; each of the pairings for each battle in a round are chosen completely at random. Whoever receives the most votes per battle from an ever-rotating judging panel of the industry's best advances to the next round. I plan on moving this Last Man Standing along faster than the last one, so be prepared.
Round I: 271 initial contenders in 3 (one 4) man battles
Round II: 90 contenders in 3 man battles
Round III: 30 contenders in 6 man battles
Final Round IV: 5 contenders, one winner.
You'd better get some action in this piece because you know your opponent will if you don't. I don't care if you main subjects are characters, vehicles, robots or hermaphrodites, just tell us a story we won't forget.
The official deadline stands at 11:59pm PST Tuesday, Septemeber 19th, 2006.
Every contestant will be responsible for hosting their own image. You will be required to submit a link to your image to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org in the yourname_round_TD.jpg format, with the title of your email yourname's entry. Please try your best to follow the format here, it saves me an assload of work. No WIPs are to be posted before the deadline. If you send me an image attached to your email instead of just the link to your hosted image, it doesn't go up.
Size: Keep your images large enough so that the detail is preserved, but do your best to keep the file size down (Photoshop's Save for Web function can help quite a bit).
Awww, the pressures of the thunderdome too much for you? Tough shit. You drop out without fair warning (and fair warning is at least 3 weeks from the due date), you will have the honor of gracing my official "I pussed out of the Thunderdome and all I got was public humiliation" page. This also goes for not submitting something for the showdown.
You new home, should you choose to accept it.

Dude, as soon as I randomized the matchups I looked for my name and simultaneously pooped my pants. I'm up against Aly, the man who's art they featured in the ImagineFX article about this goddamn thunderdome.
Please prelube before you violate me publicly, Posh. I think I'd better go draw now.
*breaks out the lube and hands it to Cody* - Don't use it all, I may need some too. This will be crazy.

I won't tell her if you won't, Sinix.
This should be fun. And painful.
Amazing! Every match is going to be great. Good luck Rash Overdrive and robinchyo! Good luck to everyone else too.
Best of luck to you two, Ploboyko and Gloominati. This is gonna be fun, but it's going to be rough on me due to some personal time restraints.
Can't wait to see 90 pieces of awesomeness...
Question on the topic, does it matter if "The Escape" is a noun or a verb?

You know how you felt in 3rd grade when you were forced to be in a Christmas play and before you went on stage, you simultaneously peed your pants and threw up on your best friend and fainted?
Yeah, well, now that I've regained conciousness and cleaned up the mess, I might as well start working on my losing entry....
THIEF YOU BETTER FREAKIN WORK HARD MAN...
