NOT ALL ENTRIES ARE TAKEN TO THE POLL.
(the selection is based on technical quality criteria)
ENTRIES NOT POLLED WILL RECEIVE C&C
(i really try to do this every time)
IT IS A DIFFICULT PROCESS - MISTAKES CAN BE MADE
I am trying to set this as a professional demand. I act as the client...
Oblio is always looking for feedback - If Oblio is wrong - tell him so.
DON'T VOTE FOR YOURSELF

I have to make another take on the quality. bumskee is too nice!
One more thing - while the host can bring up ANY reason to cut down pieces - just like a regular client - i will try to cut onle on a technical/presentation basis.
Here is my list of cuts.
graphujii - needs more work. too soaked in the background. soem shapes are messy.
nkunleashed - shaped and values - don;t use black to for shadows. stay away from that black airbrushing - it's too flat. saturation and color needs a LOT more atention. work values and shapes.
ceartivesmug - make it black and white - you will see that your volumes don;t read right. work those values.
yoitsi - wip
sony - proportions, values - not good.
magma - same as knumleashed - no black for shadow - baaad. no airbrush - wathc your edges. for the torso and the shadows over the body - it's good that you doidnt used black - yet - your shadow is the same color as the light just a lower value.
Try to use a different temperature and saturation for shadow. example- warm saturated ligh = cold unsaturated shadow.
dig the boartds - the is A LOT of color theory here. oh.. and LENS FLARE? never will a lens flare peice make it to the poll. sorry!
THIS IS NOT DEVIANART!!!!! ups..
timothy - almost didnt' make it for me - shapes are ok - cartoon style it holds - saturation and contrast needs more work - it bears the same saturation allover and it makes it look flat.
sellis - wip
enbe - this one is crazy - i'm not sure if you know what you're doing there - looking at the hat for example nad how flat that looks - i'd say you push things until they seem right - lacking some background. i would let it pass as it might get one stray vote. not a winner. needs more work.
jon grello - seems like you can boost more then that. god sketch - it;s doesnt get the job though .
crospufo - needs more work - volumes, cleaning etc. see above about balck and airbrush. that sketchy linework does not work in the render - too messy
fidayeve - almost not to make it - looks broken at the neck, hand holding the skull doesnt belong to the body - proportions perspective etc.
robojing - FLAT! Volumes are a mess - his hands can barely read - shoulder pads are flat too. perspective is wrong. time to be carefull on the next one.
mudgit - nice and clean - yet you cover too much - head and body don;t seem together.
kreator - left leg , right fist - in trouble - but it could have pass.
pixeldust - FORM and VALUES - do the big shapes - don;t cover with black.
monstertree - comment - techicaly it would pass - i agree with bumskee - he;s on the other side.
bear jr - make it B&W - you will see how your values are not right - it's flat in some areas.
skolld - linework needs more care, forms and values - see above about the blsck shadows and airbrush.
shidoken - needs way more work
daray - in the end it's a bit flat - light is inconsistent.
sady - see above- blak and airbrish - you're not as aggressive as the others - but still your piece needs more attentions and clarity.
gerezon - flat
original e - shapes, proportions, anatomy - try to make everything look really 3D only with the line work .
carnifex - brother - i fear not to include you in the poll. you wil say it's personal and it's not. while the face is acceptable - the rest is a mess - if you wouldnt have written i would not understand the guts thing and - see his legs- no volume. the monster arm - a mess. values- coat and pands- same valeu - just someextra lines on the pants. pull yourself together- you need to work it up some more man.
antne - color needs attention - all is too saturated and it doesn't help you image. the pose is difficutl and the perspective had you - the legs - all the pants area is odd and flat. also - see above - no black for shadows - no airbrush
eraser foot - almost wouldnt make it - it needs a bit more work - and you have the skill.
ashton - needs more work.
danger - if i squeent my eyes - i can barely see him - time to study values. start with one strong light - make it consistent. small value range - there are tonds of exercises and tutorials on the forums.
bluki - i agree with bumskee - it goes up - wip good enough - clean etc. a good lesson here.
muleskinner- back to basics sir. form, light...
black robin - needs more focus on shapes, proportions, perspective and values.
punkbound - needs definition of shapes, better proportions, correct values, depth, and more color work.
artdwx - just a comment - character almost blends with the background.
radu - needs more work.
zone on e - it's on the edge - needs more work - play more with values and color temp. in the shadow.
gun trover - not a fan of photo mixing. apart forn that... you should have payed more attention into blending everything better. there is defference in the level of detail of separated parts.
food - torso, legs problems - too rushed - a bit flat - lost in a the background a bit.
gene- back to basics. try simple shapes. watch proportions, form...
shaktool - see above about black in the shadow and airbrushing.
i wish i could have time for the good entires too - they deserve more then just being on the poll.
Thank you for being brave to be in CHOW. CHOW requires character RESPEKT.
