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...
Nice damn job, everybody!

awesome i love all these entries. My fav foes to Icon.
Good job on getting in the finals guys!!!
I'm not counting chickens before they're hatched, but Im pretty sure I lost....
Shelly your piece is so amazing!! the lighting is gorgeous, the love for detail....everything. Hats off!
the rest of the gang, you guys are crazy too...Posh, my jaw dropped when I saw yours! Vyle, splendid Idea (why didnt i think of that... must steal his brain), Icon, gotta love tentacles and Merwoman ^^
before I get any cheap shots on the stick figures / kid drawing (ya, Im looking at you M@ ).... I started this piece when the topic was announced, some weeks ago- then a work load came in and there went my time...BUT something was missing, so I was joking a round with a friend, and we were like "wouldn't it be totally retarded if I did like a kids drawing or something, as the army?"... and the more I thought about the more I liked the Juxtapositioning.... anyway, thats my exscuse and Im sticking to it ^^
I have to petition for Aly...
The biggest fuckin travesty of the world is Aly is not in the fucking CA banner. I may be coming off like a fan boy...but, seriously if you look at his work...you look at the facts of his profession...again, you look at his work...
Aly, if you don't crush the competition in this final, you were robbed. I love Shelly's, I love Icon's, I love Nic's, I love Vyle everytime I go down to Austin...well...not really...but...anyway...no seriously, Vyle's is my number two in this round.
Aly, hats off. You are fantastic, and so is your art.
I totally agree with Sundance on the banner bit.....
Congrads to all you guys and gals, you make me make tears. This is simply a stunning round.
Nicolas - Your piece is sweet man, I really dig the simple kid drawings. Sometimes it doesn't work, but for this it's a nice addition. Good show -
Shelly - OHHHHHH MY GGOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDNEEESSSSSSS! I know there are tons of people wanting to have your children, I just want to tell you how amazing your work is. This piece, amoung is incredible, I hope you take us on a journey of how the beauty was born. As I've traveled through your portfolio, I just keep drooling all over my keyboard, I'm suprised it still works. Keep this up, and keep amazing us.
Icon - another person I'm a huge fan of. Lovely piece as usual, the central figure is so very powerful. The figure on the bellouga whale I feel kinda brings a hault to the motion, but I'm still stunned
Vyle - lovely piece too, dude. your handling of saturation and texture is lovely. I think after looking at the previous it feels a bit bare, but the story is a nice one to follow (and a little sad, poor donkey). Great job and Congrads!
Posh - nice take on the topic and a very signature piece. The pink shoes are definately a nice touch. Congrads on giving us a good show!
