    What a round!

    Voted for xgabo - Great design and concept! Love the distortion of the face and jaw, really twisted. Very hellish.

    Other faves for this round:
    Chuck - that came out really well with a bit of top lighting. That's one festy breast.
    Jakkas
    Mike C
    Lodin
    ArtZealot - Diggin the creature design. The wings are an interesting contradiction.

    Thanks for everyone's comments/crits! Appreciate it.

    xgabo: I think all your work is cool, but here it's even better because the color is better. I don't mind the black line work that usually lives in your illustrations, but I don't like it when that black bleeds into the fill color in your shadow side. Because that's not occurring here, I think it's a nice improvement. I think the brownish base is monotonous because it's everywhere and I'd prefer to see the creature come up off of it. People are tired of elephant creatures, but I give you points because I think it's clever the way you created a false trunk silhouette by extending a curled lower lip.

    That said, I voted for Corriero. Just a personal judgment on which one I'd, theoretically, keep on my desktop longer. Not to worry, you're margin is quite healthy anyway.

    ALL: My apologies for the few comments this week. The field is sooo large and I have a lot of work. If you want my opinions, PM me and I'll be happy to conjure up some C&C eventually. Thank you for voting - here and everywhere.

    So in other words, I didn't win your vote - Xgabo lost it. LOL... Where have I heard that before?.. recently... today... on the news...

    Chuck - I know what you mean about the black in the fill colour, but that has happened for a very specific reason. I tampered with my monitor gamma a few months ago (for a specific print I needed to do), and I totally forgot to bring it back to normal settings. That made my paintings get much darker than I intended in most people's monitors, while for me it was all ok; I only noticed that recently and fixed the problem. Now the shadows look the way I intended when I painted them. I even came back, re-leveled all my recent posts for CA and posted them in my website.

    P.S - Who's tired of elephant creatures? I certainly am not

    What are u talking about?

    Just kidding I really liked both of yours equally, so I had to find something in them that I didn't like in order to rule one out. So for me, that makes yours flawless Chuck

    Sve- Thanks for the words and the critique. I agree with you on the front rider and the falling ash. For the ash, I just used a textured scatter brush with angle and roundness jitter to the max, and let the computer randomly place them. Not the best way to go about it, perhaps. I was quite happy with the sense of movement I created.
    MikeCorriero- Initially, I meant to use the texture brush to just put in some values as a more interesting substitute to the plain ol' flat round brush, not in place of hand-painting in some texture. But I guess I got carries away playing with brushes and never came back to put in some details. Thanks for the crits. They were very informative.
    Supervlieg- You know, that's a great idea, to have the features of the head carry through with the rest of the body. Now that you said it, I wish I'd done it. When you say the rider looks stiff in his seat, are you talking about the near rider or the far rider? If you meant the far rider, I agree. Didn't use reference. Slap my wrist.
    Oblio- Thanks for the vote!
    Hurricane- You got my vote this time around. True, it does look like a bit of a rushed job, especially on the ground and the cast shadow of the creature, but my love for weird, darkly angelic creatures with glowing heiroglyphic markings overpowered any flaws in the image's execution. Plus, yellow-orange and turquoise is my favorite color pair. Nice job!

    I'll do my mass critique tomorrow, or at least the first installment, seeing as how there's half a billion entries in this round.

    Although Matt Dixon is one of my personal heros on this forum I had to vote for Gorgoth of Suburbia. That image just caught me off guard... disgusting and disturbing! Well done Gorgoth!

    I found one the other day with most of my elfwood gallery on it. None of my remotely decent stuff is on elfwood anyways. Though it was strangely flattering at the same time as you said.

    Though i did have fun trying to work out what it said since it was in Russian and i was using Babelfish to translate it

    MikeCorriero, Joey-b and Supervlieg, thanks for the art tips!
    Being a self-taught artist I need all the advice I can get.

    And thank you, twigbag! I really appreciate it!

    Oh, and Mike, your creature is just incredible! Painting all those little details must've taken AGES!
