I was thinking it was for oriental folding fans, like a japanese war fan. What it is, is absolutely gorgeous! I can't stop looking at it myself. (Looks like Arky was right).Originally Posted by NathanLong
I really appreciate Aly's work also. It's a clever idea and nice continuation with her subject matter (pin ups). The rendering of all the little objects in her pics is what always gets me. They're all carefully done and positioned nicely. Always great rendering.
Icon and Vlyes ideas, also clever. Icon's choice for lighting is what I always like. I also like the skulls in the sky giving that story a little more dimension.
I aboslutely love Nicolas' clothes designs! He's a great pro, awesome rendering/lighting... but his design aspects that get me. Awesome job man!
As soon as I heard this was up, I decided to storm to my friend's house about 40 minutes away, kick them out of bed and use their computer! And my was it worth it!!!
First I wish to thank everyone. Mainly Cody, judges and the entire 270 artist that worked so hard on this (a few pussouts here and there, but this is a speech not a damn math class!!!!!) ... this contest truly changed me as an artist, and it wouldn’t have been possible if it weren't for all of you. I'm blessed, honored, and overwhelmed to be next to these fantastic professionals!
With that out of my system
Nicolas: I laugh every time I see it, and it's wonderful! The army is silly but it truly attracts attention to the main figure, which I sigh about, since it’s executed wonderfully!!!
Shelly: My dear! That poor lady is delusional; she thinks wall pictures will save her from assassins!! !!!! No, just joking. Wonderful Shelly, just wonderful! Its design, color, composition, is just out of this world. You truly excel more and more with each work delivered! I guess I’m just so happy for you since I remember the first pieces you posted in concept art (well not the first, but the ones before the girl Thunderdome) and you have grown so much!! I'm glad and I can't wait until we get to hang out again ;p. (or at least until I get my net back so I can make a blogspot and chill)
Vyle: Don Quixote owns my heart, and so does this piece. I'm typically not a fan of low key pictures, but it works so well for you since I find myself going back to the painting making out the different shapes. It could also be this horrible monitor. In any case, I adore it
Posh/Aly: The king of pin up is what I shall call you. This is fantastic!! I did a list as well, and there are only three things that can be assigned to " charge!"
: 1. A battle.
2. Someone charging their credit card
3. Someone charging their battery.
I was a 100% sure everyone (including myself) would do a war scene... and I’m really happy you didn’t! It works so well, I adore your details and names. Abby normal...seriously!! I love its humor, color, composition...well everything =/ . She’s even suicidal! Mix hairspray with electricity and you get a happy explosion. Well anyways, great work!
You four have inspired me greatly, and your work for this "just for fun" competition has been amazing, to me there is no clear winner! I feel sorry for the judges, since these are all so great, that it suddenly becomes a matter of taste! So good luck to them!
Crazy entries... All you peeps rocked it like ummmm rockstars.... Its a coin toss between shelly and nick imo... Good luck to all
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Gotta give this one to Shelly... each of the images feels a little rushed compared to other works by these amazing artists but only one is truly WAN-derful.
Amazing work everyone... an incredible competition overall!
Wacomitis - fear of an empty bank account.
congrats to all the finalists,i pull my nonexistant hat in front of you.
for me it's a tie between the females of this one,shelly,icon,aly(),wouldn't wanna be a judge.
each and every one of those pics deserves to be on a cover of it's own though,and should there ever be a "best of thunderdome" book coming out *hint hint*,multiple editions for different countries wouldn't be much of a problem
by some i was thrown outta my socks by what seemed a sudden gigantic leap in quality (icon f.ex.,compared to your female pinup,which is hot on it's own,this owns by even a few miles more).
once again congrats to all for being this far,and my vote is for icon and shelly sharing first place
you've all certainly inspired me to work harder on my own entry next time.

With 4 other fantastic artists to be announced. I'll keep you all updated!
These are all just fantastic!
Shelly - You are coming over to paint that across my wall, right?
Cody - Take a bow! Another AMAZING contest.
i really like this one.Originally Posted by strych9ine
quick question,is this the bride of frankentien? and if so is she cheating on franky with the invisible man, i noticed the invisible spays' stamped with the name "Griffin" (a.k.a invisible man) from b-movie fame and Alan Moores leauge of extraordinary gentlemen?
Fuck! great stuff.
Cody - You _might_ have to re-title this "The Last Woman Standing"!
Serioulsy. A "best of" from the first and this contest would be top-notch. Maybe the girls will let you use thier "Chicks" format as a template....if you ask nicely.Originally Posted by Art_Addict
amazingly inspirational, thanks guys and gals.
good luck to all
Strych9ine,I think your work is good.Icon is my favorite piece.What was the purpose for the woman in the lower left hand corner? She shouldn't have been present in the piece. She takes so much life away from the focal point. =FOX=
Please check out my sketchbook. I need crits!
Just to clarify, although I wish I could claim credit for any one of these pieces I didn't create any of them, Fox. Each post has the name of the creator twice within the post, once in the actual post and as the title of the post.Originally Posted by The Artist Fox
Good Lord. Outstanding. They're all beautiful...you guys have so much talent.
Shelly. I think yours stands out just a little for me. I love it.

these are amazing! congrats on everyone who made it to the final round....
shelly, your piece is gorgeous, and it looks like the popular vote's got your back, but poshspice's got mine... details, humor, spot on design and drafting, and rendered to all hell.... great job!
so, when's the next one?
Great job, everyone! I'm really glad everyone was able to finish and submit their pieces in time :-P Personally, I'm in favor of Nicolas' piece. It's just oozing with style and it's cute, too. But, really it's impossible to decide on a winner without having to go back and taking a look at the entries again and choosing some one else (and so on and so on). Can't wait for LMSTD3 (get a start on it, Codybear!) !!
Nicolas that is pretty hip idea. I still think this one could have maybe been pushed a bit more. Maybe with the addition of cast shadows. It is still a hot bit though!
Shelly Wan you never cease to amaze me! I love the way you have taken a different route with your canvas. Composition is lovely!
Aly that is a really hip take on the subject. I am glad that you have taken this route with the theme. This is what will separate you from the rest. Originality is a bonus for you dude!
Vyle incredible scale in this one and the texture work in your work is always a treat!
Icon really nice to see that you have made it this far! I am on the bandwagon of being an Icono fan. I really like your approach in this entry. I still feel that you fell short with the forground a bit. I wish there was an element that followed the motion of what is going on in the background! Still this a really powerful image!
Good stuff everyone! I can't wait for the next thunderdome!!!
OOOoooo incredible all. Even you΄ve drawn Don Quijote de la mancha very inspired works. You master in very different styles.
