Please post all entries in this thread before 8th September 2008 10:30AM GMT.
Only entries posted in the 'SUPER Stylised Challenge - August 2008 - Ancient Warrior - VOTING' thread before this date will be eligible for Voting!
Voting will then start immediately afterwards and will run until 15th September 2008 10:30AM GMT.
We will post to commence the Voting on the 8th September. Voting will be the same as last month, with each voter putting forward their top 3 entries, in order: 3pts for a 1st place, 2pts for 2nd, and 1pt for 3rd. This means that we will all have to choose very carefully!
Please feel free to give reasons for your selection, as it will be good feedback for everyone!
Thanks again for the great work that you have all put in. We look forward to this month's entries! Good luck, everyone!
Many thanks for all your hard work!

Remember: 3 points for 1st place, 2 for 2nd, and 1 for 3rd. Let's keep this thread nice and clean, so no chit-chat if possible, but if you'd like to give reasons for your top three and make honourary mentions then that's all good!
Thanks everyone! And don't forget the latest challenge - Frankenstein / Science Mishap - is now also underway, here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=135786
1st - matteo89
2nd - gnarz
3rd - shatteredfx
These are my favourites but very entertaining to view all entries
1: Shatteredfx This entire figure truly is a warrior. The white hair covers the ancient part enough. The colors are nice and bright and the rendering on the fleshparts is great. You could do better on the belts. The background is just amazing.
2: BSTSK Awesome picture. Great how the tattoo follows the body. Only crit is his hand holding the sword.
3: Mateo'89 good translation of the perfect linedrawing. I am missing a bit ancient and a bit warrior.
Good job everybody.
Here's my top 3, but congrats go to all who entered!
1 - Matteo '89
2 - bstsk
3 - Lucent Verner
Well done all!
here are my votes:
1 - bstsk
2 - Matteo'89
3 - Tommoy
1st. Bstsk - love the style and such a cool picture. just wish it had more detail in the arm bands though.
2nd. ShatteredFX - really like the bright vivid colours that still manages to fit with the whole ancient warrior feel. plus its just pretty to look at
3rd. Matteo'89 - ahhh you would've gotten my first or at least my second vote if the paintjob had hit just a little bit harder. I still prefer your inks, mate.
So many great pictures and so little votes to give...
1st - Matteo'89
2nd - bstsk
3rd - MurdokX
1 - Shatteredfx
2 - Matteo '89
