Theres a great deal of high quality work in here, but I just thought Id mention a handful that I particularly enjoyed.
DavidSmit Nice mood in this. I really like how the girl indicates some unseen threat outside of the frame very effective.
Dutton Great idea, very expressive and very well painted!
Mr Blonde Loved the styling in this.
Okelvin That must have taken flippin ages!
Viag It looks complex and dramatic yet simply constructed. These are skills I must learn!
Shelly another beautiful piece! More understated than your first round, but no less worthy of merit!
El Coro I really love the texture in the first piece it feels so tangible.
Iconophobian Painterly and dramatic and a nice palette!
Jason Manley Im really drawn into this it feels like a memory, or some thought captured in a frame. An amazing quality for a relatively simple piece.
Kudos to everyone who submitted an entry! - Too much awsomeness for one thread! pld:
Sve Thanks for the critique! Im sure youre right it feels more like an approximation of what it should have been. I spent too much time conceptualising when I should have just gone for it I dont have much experience with quick concept techniques, so I needed more time than I allowed. Oh well My fault!
I dont expect to be in the next round, and Im already disappointed about that but its been a great experience and I definitely want to be in the next one!
Some of these matches were real ball busters to choose a winner. You all did amazing jobs with your entries, pat yourselves on the back. Congrats to the winners, Round 3 matchups to come later this weekend!
Awesome works everybody !!!
I feel presomptuous to be asked to give my opinion about all this images.
This thread rocks. I discovered it once when every artworks were finished.
A good thing for the last round would maybe to hide the name of the authors even if some styles are always easily recognizable (hard to give an objective opinion about friends) and having more judges.
Congrats to all the competitors.
