    oh wow, amazing, thank you! those pictures really crown the challenge and honor everyone who participated... all pictures are just over the top and crazy and cool in their own ways! I don't see how there can possibly be a judgment on those... hard time for judges.

    It's been an honor competing against you in the last round, Nicolas, glad to see you accelerating your momentum with a final charge (oops that was cheap). This piece is just amazing, so great graphic design and composition and all. The guy is way cool and so full of character, great balance. It's fun because, when I saw I was against you last round, I thought, "damn, this guy is so hype and stylish that he could win even with a stick figure".. and here they come . Good luck to you!

    Shelly Wan : waw, that's fabulously elegant. This odd format gives it a great art deco touch, like it's meant to be a painting on a wall, or perhaps a fan. The colors and light are absolutely lovely, and .. and ... I'm wondering how I will end up this reply without spending all the superlatives I know. Anyway, the graphic design you incorporated is great too, I especially like how the water waves feel slightly embossed.. it gives a delicate touch. Great job on the different materials too, the skin, cloth, metal, wall shading are spot on.
    Good luck to you!

    Icon : the composition is just terrific in your picture, I love this central character, and the dynamic in the piece is very well thought out. The palette is super-cool too, those harpies coming from the dark blue tones to the warm water of the sea-folk, great. Good luck!

    Vyle : heyy that's crazy cool David, great use of your rock skills again, and super cool intepretation of the theme.. Good luck to you, you're representing the "Neo team" in a magistral way!

    Poshspice : haha excellent, great to see that you went for another meaning of the theme. The pinup / B-movie thematic is again greatly mastered, the picture you made there is just plain fun to look at, a lot of little cool details (love the troll!), and the frankenstein groupie is delicious (if you forget the stitches...). Good luck!


    And last and not least : Cody, BIG thanks for organizing this thunderdome, it was totally awesome, so much great artworks just for fun and fame On to the next one!! reveeeeeenge

    Shelly;

    That is definitley pushing the digital medium... Canvas shapes like that, it beats normal rectangles... That is definitley a pioneering move!!! Way to go all of you!

    Posh, that is a GREAT idea... very original kind of "Charge" haha!

    The shape of Shelly's piece is usually used for murals in arches over a door, I think.

    Wow, you guys pulled out all the stops on this one... and I'm really glad I didn't make it to this round....

    Shelly..... your piece made me gasp the way you see people do in the movies when they've been underwater for what seems like hours, and they finally surface and suck in the air so hard you can't tell whether or not the breath they just took saved their life or burned even more than if they had drowned.

    I had a brand new James Jean wallpaper up today too, and your painting instantly replaced it.

    I hate you all!!!!!!


    Even though Nic put up an AMAZING fight the last few rounds, I called it for Shelly since the Round 1 entries were posted. Shelly all the way


    Awesome job everyone. Now hurry up and submit them all to Spectrum before the deadline comes and goes.

    p.s. Cody, thanks again for all the hard work in putting together LMS2. Also, I love the graphic design for this one: the cropping of each piece put side by side creates a new piece that stands on its own, despite the unique style each finalist brought forth in the final round.

    p.s.s. I remember you saying that, Arkady.

    Phenomenal work all five of you!

    Thank you sincerely.

    Thank you for the smile, the inspiration and the references images I can pull from on the day when I forget why I should draw rather than play the video game.

    All because of your efforts.

    ...so my wife walks in with a black-powder 1890 Navy issue .45, loaded and cocked, points it generally in the direction of my left ear and tells me to take a shower because the cats are afraid to come in any room I'm in...

    Then I come out here, open this thread, and piss my pants. Thanks a fuckin' big ho-dad lot, everybody...as soon as I find your addresses, I'll show my appreciation in person...

    Well I'm a bit speechless, (not that that's unusual.)
    Just amazingly good pieces from each of you
