    Hey Fozzybar I'm just curious: Did you not put up my piece (page 1) for vote because I didn't have a discription?

    Jesus H. Chris! How in Hell are we supposed to vote?! Seriously...you guys have outdone yourselves and I wish i would have been able to finish my entry to be able to have my drawing be in such amazing company. I guess I'll bring it to WIP and polish it up...

    The vote was hard...I voted for Supervlieg because I LOVED the way he presented it....the typography was perfect for his creepy critter... It was hard choice though because I loved so many of them...I don't even think I can name them all...there are just to many to love!

    Great work guys!

    This one was really hard to choose from. So many outstanding picspld:!!!

    My top 10 (no order);
    Xgabo HOLY CRAP! The physical presence of this monster is impressive.
    Lodin Very nice! You can tell it likes its job.
    MikeCorriero Detail and composition is awesome as always. One question...is it an automatic or stick?
    Matt Dixon I always love your style. I actually feel sorry for it...a giant beast...from HELL no less!
    Banhatin Great textures! I like the transluscent-like stomach area and muscle structure. It really looks like it lives in that rough terrain.
    Cakeypigdog Love the style! Really frightening concept! Envelopment...eewww!
    Gorgoth of Suburbia That creepy, goosebumpy feeling won't go away! Thanks a lot!
    ChenZan Really good lighting effects! I also like the physiology of this creature a lot.
    jfwalls Just a nibble here and there. I want this as my watch dog...er, Malumvoro.
    JakkaS Not everything in hell is BIG. This is a nice spin on torment! I love it (but its just soooo wrong)!

    In the end Xgabo got my vote.
    Awesome job everyone!

    All of the entries were great this time, was really difficult to choose.

    *banhatin: Great picture, nice sense of movement, but at the same time looks a little flat. If it was starting to turn towards the viewer might bring it it out a little more
    *Orifice: I love th perspective on it and its head especially
    *cakeypigdog: Really striking image, very close to getting my vote
    *Gorgoth of Suburbia: That is one scary beastie, If i found one of those in my bathtub i may never wash again Love the sort of slimey texture you have managed to create on it.
    *ChenZan: This is just awesome, slight variation in colour might have brought it out a little more?
    *Chuck Wadey: I love this, close second.
    *xgabo: Gets my vote, this creature is just awesome. The mere sense of scale and power is almost overwhelming.
    *Artifex33: Close to getting the vote as well. Great image.

    That was the last comment above your image:
    "Is it too late to throw down a sketch? I have time to finish it tommorrow...I think."
    I understand this as not finished and a WIP...btw it also made the decision easier for me to think about accepting or rejecting the piece...it was very human like...but your sketch comment made the decision

    Your last comment in your image post:
    "Here my rough thus far"
    This and the missing description made me think it is a WIP as well.



    So the conclusion for all participants:
    Whether leave the sketch/wip/not finished comments out from the beginning or DELETE them afterwards if you update your image...i can't read your minds only what you write down here

    XGabo got my votes. Very nice creature and use of lighting. I absolutely loved the women on the tusks, nice evil touch.

    All of the other entries were great, but Chuck's stuck out as my runner-up.

    I voted for Fellah, because I like his laconic and precise manner to talk in art. This image was very clear in its message with minimum words, but nevertheless expressive. Emotion is fear, danger coming toward me very fast, inevitable, intimidating. Feels like ultimate fear sitting deep inside in my subconsciousness, stronger than passion, undestroyable. Manner to talk is very subtle and personal though, I doubt it will ever be domineering in competitions. Effects demand thorough observation.

    The others artist who impressed me very much are:
    AK86 The pose, colors and roughness of creature. Carry threat very expressively and reminds me ancient times art (like Egyptian) or mystic creatures on the roof of Notre Dame de Paris.

    hurricane
    Elegant entry, especially I like its light legs and glowing sign of belonging to some elite club on its chest. Not scary though.

    Artifex33 I like jumping balls of fire in lava river and the faces of the creature. It is scary image. Composition is not very balance though, in my opinion.

    Orifice Really interesting composition of the image, new, fresh. The head of the creature is great and vicious, I wish you work that detailed to the rest of its body and put more thoughts in BG., The head is awesome though.

    Chuck Wadey Beautiful illustration, beautiful to the degree it is not scary, the way luxiorius woven gobelin can't be scary but on the contrary highly aesthetic.

    Moai I like the feeling of mad run of these cruel dogs from hell .
    it is scary. I like the twist of the body on the front creature, great motion and delight for eyes. Front rider could be better done, in my opinion and snow flakes are a bit sloppy.

    JakkaS Beautifully done and very, very funny. Your humor is sweet and soft, i like it. Hell incarnation of bacteria, I took it . I saw acnes on some one year old too though... are they full of dirty thoughts aw well ? Creature is beautiful, but if you want my thought and you don't have listen them. you can use less details and have better effect. I mean more precise in getting message to viewer.

    MikeCorriero I like it, but the same thought, you give too much information, and attention is lost on many things, I think it would be better to lead your viewer and give him information in more organised manner. But I realise it is a style, very rich style..


    Piru I love its mocking expression and meaty stylized legs.

    Woodlandwalker Very strong association with old master depiction of hell and last days on Earth, very catastrophic feeling. Human flesh torn and risen in the air is scary and terrifying. I wish you did more accurately with the creature, using the eraser tool in outlines is too sharp, sloppy, in my opinion, very sobering when I look at the image. Lava texture is interesting.

    cakeypigdog I like this prickly chaotic feeling from your image, makes me uneasy. I wish the tail of the creature combining all the separate unities as huge ring, well I wish it was fuller and more prominent. it would be better composition in my opinion. Overall it is great. Not so scary, more like strange.

    misledtomisery I love your entry, it is noisy and has good feeling of motion in it. I feel present in the picture. If you want crits I would suggest to make all heads coming from one spot, to make them more united.

    xgabo I'm impressed with figures of worshippers, their body language, their pose, it is fear in them and it adds so much to impression from creature. Great interaction between the characters, subtle but precise.
    I wish pose of the creature was not stretched along the image, and its lower part lost in red vapours.

    Blue Its strange form provokes curiosity in me, probable fatal in case if it is as vicious as it looks.

    Matt Dixon Ohhh, this one is funny, no way it is effective in its helish job, too lazy.

    I voted for Jfwalls', although I thought many other concepts were evil I could somehow see Jf's in Hell more.
    mmm... tastes like chicken.

    Cakeypigdog, gets my vote. I loved all the thumbnails and the final is even better. I’d love to see it move.

    Xgabo, that head is inspired. If the body was half as interesting as the head you’d have my vote.

    Stephan R, awesome image. Looking at a drawing of this I don’t think I’d be impressed but this painting really sells the idea well.

    My vote went to JakkaS, Great rendering and an excellent description. The creature really fit the concept and was a really entertaining twist on the theme.
    close seconds were cakeypigday, Gorgoth of Suberbia, and of course Lodin.

    I tried to figure out which concept I liked best. Failed. There's just too many damn good entries! So I decided to give my vote to Purgatorio as moral support for a fellow first-time COWer.
    Cheers!
