VOTING!! Teen Challenge #17
The topic was "The Nightmare." Vote for your favorite!
j a k e:
Not taken to poll:
all entries stated as WIPs
grundybug - don't take this as discouraging, I know you're very young and new to drawing with a computer; that being said, I think you ought to get better acquainted with the software before attempting to enter contests.
Sorry for the lateness, lately school has been keeping me busy enough that I can barely stay on top of this thing, let alone enter myself. Post any ideas you might have for challenge #18, preferably topics that are pretty open-ended like this one was, since everyone seems to like those. And be sure to leave some crits and comments on the pieces above.

ooh lots of good entries this round, I went for dile, I'm a sucker for greyscale with a little bit of red and the image works very well i think. close seconds is a 3-way tie between j a k e, evil_sloth and Jtho. I alos really dig the colors and compostion on yungks.ae's. great participation this round.

I voted for Njord, he's fuckin traditional!
As usual, I'll waste some of my time to write stuff that hardly anybody will read!
wombat: nice, but a bit wippish.
jake: not enough nightmareish with that blue sky man. I find it pretty relaxing image.
Guitarjames: the figure is pointless imho, the abstract stuff is strong on it's own!(like my abstract avatar!)
Bestow: devote some more time on the next one man!
Jtho: good one, but imo the bg shouldn't be brighter than the figures.
Sloth: again, very good use of fotoshop, lack of construction.
Dile: looks very nice, but it's almost exact copy of one of the dudes in some SW game.
luxun: that figure with the explication mark is ruining it for me.
waronmars: very good stuff!
Orifice: you had it, but you destroyed it with that red stuff and text bubble...
Noe: as i said before, the bed is with reversed perspective.
Vorbiss: fuck the pencil man, it sux!
Yungks: cool, but the gamma you're using is very clicheed.
Next topic ideas: falling(open to interpretation), happyness, non-attractive woman cooking.(yea, that's what makes me hard! )
That's all, folks!

V0rbiss; reversed perspective? I don't know what you mean
*looks again* ooh you mean the pillow? Well I just made the pillow thick, so maybe you're seeing that as reversed perspective. I should've made that more clear.
I love the entries in this TC.. J voted for Waronmars because I love those colours.
More detailed crits (maybe) later.

Oh man I next topic has to be "Robbers".
I just had these two guys try to break into my house with crobars while I was still inside painting and the f*cking noobs not only destroyed my door but my house has been robbed 3 times recently in the last 4 months... So I basically went opened the door and they were so freaked out that they made up this HUGE story with plot lines and details about my nieghbour and cheating gf's and drugs.
Man some people are so stupid.

Looks like this is one of the most popolar ones in ages. Hard to choose one. I really liked InvincibleWombat, jtho, waronmars, orofice and luxon.
Ultematly, my vote goes to jtho.
wombat: Wonderful cool and warm color going on here. I really makes me happy. Nice to have the blob there. It is zombiemoose's nightmare
jake: Nice for a childrens book. Well executed, but i feel it falls short of a nightmare theme. + for being original though.
Guitarjames: A bit to muddy for my liking. A good idea though.
Bestow: Too simple for me, it dosent really give me a nightmarish feeling.
Jtho: I really like it. Has a good poster feel to it. The valus are also solid. Great work.
Sloth: Feel it is to saturated in color. Cool creature design though.
Dile: I like the values, but i dont really like the red lines going down. The font choosen for the text is superb though.
luxun: Like it, it is dark and sinister, very abstract. I also like the little guy there.
waronmars: Good work, but i feel it is a bit rushed in places.
Orifice: Really nice light on the form, but as said earlier, the textbubble is out of place. The picture tells the whole story without it.
Noe: Nice expression on the girl and some nice folds. I wouldlike the gost to look a bit more spectral. Some light from it reflected on the bed would have helped the picture.
Vorbiss: Too wip-ish for my taste, cant really see whats going on.
Yungks: I really like the color choise. The kid got a nice expression too. But the face seems not very anatomical. the end of it cuts the left eye off.
I though about doing a "happy" theme for the next one. Maybe a harbour one. Read the great passage in a book by Yukio Misima: The sailor who fell....
Paraphraced it was something like this; The sun's reflection was like a bright sheet of metal upon the anvil of the harbor water.
