There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
amazing work everyone--clapclapclapclap
Jaku---great job--love the face and hands
Joachim--your redesign of bionic commando is my favorite piece----i think he would have some trouble getting to those grenades though--heh
mcotie---pac man looks badass---love the subtle blood on his teeth haha
weapon--well done mate!! i think the first pic could use more contrast---the character shots are f'n great
steve thomas--- love this pic!!! it really feels like the the old covers---with all the monsters and the outnumbered hero
its a little hard to know where to look as everything has the same intensity ---great job!!
brutenine--cool pic --- would love to see more color
muttonhead---hahaha --cool piece man--your work brings a refreshing breath of zaniness
geztar--i think this is a really great piece---i wish the hero was handled with the painterly quality of the girl and BG---
the cropping at the bottom of feet is distracting---the castle/shore reminds me of charles Vess and Michael Kaluta
ove that girl!!!
Lono-- fucking sick
blackhand---dude this work is great---love all the time you spent on animations and schematics--the passion is there!
Mcnallyism--LOve that megaman!!! i think the rampage design is awesome--- i didnt know what game it was until you told us---maybe if there were monsters climbing the buildings in the BG it would read as rampage quicker
bloodstone--dude this is great---very disturbing--bravo
neg.space---love the lighting and color --very cool
again great job peeps
available for freelance
I don't know who is my favorite...there are too many nice designs and and well painted pictures.... I'm surprised of how many great paintings that swamped the contest just around the dealine.
btw mcnallyism, thanks for the nice compliment. -very nice rampage pic btw!!
I'm glad that some likes mine I'm actually a bit surprised that my Bionic Commando made some attention but not my Ghost'n Goblins picture which I felt I put more attitude into the setting and character...But I guess the Bionic C had more appeal and "character design" (?)
I always thought that the Ghost'n Goblins game had a lot of humour, I remember when he lost his armour and ran around in his white underwear with red dots, hehe -I loved that game....I don't think the new one, called Maximo or something had the same feeling and comedy, esp the character which became a "cool hero character" when the original was a heavy armored dork, running around killing skeletons to save his princess-or maybe it just was the funny 2 frames animations that gave me that interpretation...
SO I guess that was my thought with the ghost'n goblins pic, the way I wanted maximo to be.
-but they kept the doublejump and white underwear in the new game though, that's a good thing
Btw Capcom rules!
enough rambling. Looking forward to see which one of you will win!

Do you think I can see some of your old school works if you still have it around? I'd like to see your progression from then to now, style and technique wise.
Being my first exposure to ThunderDome, I gotta say that these entries are unbelievable --pure talent, and very impressive.
-I love Maxx M.'s drawing, but I was hoping to see some color added...
-Joachim's ghost-n-goblins pic is great
-I nearly passed out when I first saw Milligan's Marathon
-I love weapon82's sketches for Dragon Warrior
-brutenine: I continue to stare in awe at that worm-thing from Contra
-Lono's cyberDemon: I still can't get over how good those legs look... geez...
-McNallyism, Prometheus and Android: I think the title "Professional" is an understatement. "Art gods" may be more appropriate.
Looking forward to the next contest. Thanks to everyone for such great inspiration.
Brutenine's Contra Boss clinches it for me. Utterly awsome.
Lono's Cyber Demon is real close to my heart being such a staunch ID Software fan boy.
Prometheus|ANJ' Megaman, Megahotm Megagirls are also awsome, great work on Gutsman.
