Half the competition has already fallen, and it's only going to get more fiece from here on. Due to the fact that I have no goddamn electricity right now, I'll be just posting the matches in text until I can make the ultra official round 2 poster ASAP. In the interest of time, however, I figured you'd all like to see which badass you're battling. On to specifics...
We're going to have ourselves a bracketed tournament. Each round will consist of 1 on 1 battles, and the winners of each respective battle will go on to the next round. Eventually we will whittle our way down to the prize fight: a one on one battle between the winner of each bracket division. Winner of that match is the Last Man Standing... the one contender who took down the masses.
Who's it gonna be then?
The matches for each round except the last will be RANDOMLY CHOSEN from the pool of 144 competitors. In the last two rounds, the battles will be between 3 men, not 2. The name of the previous rounds are linked up to it's corresponding thread...
Round I: 144 Competitors - 2 man battles
Round II: 72 Competitors - 2 man battles
Round III: 36 Competitors - 2 man battles
Round IV: 18 Competitors - 2 man battles
Round V: 9 Competitors - 3 man battles
Round VI: 3 men enter, one man leaves...
In a vast city at night, one male and one female are fighting each other one on one...
For the second round we're going straight for the total package; specific character interaction in an environment. It's time to step this up a notch and make this a challenge for chrissakes. The scene is not time period specific, and the characters must be humanoid.
You'll then have a little over three weeks to complete your masterpieces. Since we started in the middle of the week you'll have a couple extra days. The deadline has been extended an extra week, giving you until 11:59pm PST September 24th, 2005.
My bandwidth will commit suicide if I hosted the massive amounts of images expected, so I'll have to ask that you upload your image to your own space and send me the link to your image. You can submit your entries in link form to firstname.lastname@example.org in the yournameVScompetitor'sname_TD.jpg format, with the title of your email yourname's entry. Size: Keep your images large enough so that the detail is preserved, but do your best to keep the file size down (Photoshop's Save for Web function can help quite a bit).
Keep your secret weapon secret: do not post up you WIPs or Finished Pieces before the main T-DOME threads are displayed. The best part about this is seeing all the artwork for the first time side by side, don't rob us of that chance.

Good luck OLSEN, go easy on me...
Just a question from a non-native speaker - does the topic mean male and female are fighting each other or together?
My grammar is lost!
Btw: Greetings to Groover! Hope we´ll have a nice duel!
<Insert witty remark here>
They are fighting each other, I updated the topic. Thanks for pointing that out.
What the h... i'm against Marko
You'll then have a little over three weeks to complete your masterpieces. Since we started in the middle of the week you'll have a couple extra days. Let's make it 11:59pm PST September 10th, 2005.
Which one is right? Sept 10th is two weeks.
I"M NEVER WRONG.
...Hyver. Congrats on getting into round two and all... shit. Shit. Shit.
Let's get it on!
Cody: You are a sick lil man. Could you have picked a more complex topic? No, me thinks not. SADISTIC!
Cool. Sounds like fun. Really hard fun. Good luck to Fipse!
Dont mean to be cynical but are the pairings for each round random!?
Yes you do mean to be cynical and yes each round is completely random. There is no conspiracy, there is only Zuul.Originally Posted by Hybridstar
well hoooooly hell those are some awesome pairings!
damn how am i supposed to stand through the waiting time. goddam this is gonna be fine!
strych-congrats,i think this will beat the first round easily. the topic alone is already awesome,but the matches...damn!
wooo, gahhh, hmmm, yarrr.
Good Luck Orcatraz!
let the onslaught begin
Are both male and female required to be human? Just wondering...
I can't wait to see how this round unfolds. There are some really good pairings.
staylor, let's pm each other soon so we can get started right away.
For the sake of argument, yes... we've got plenty of rounds after this to explore other possibilities.Originally Posted by leckronium
holy crap, I'm against Milligan. I guess I'm going out in a blaze of glory!
Erk... I though you had implied "male and female" so as the leave the species of the characters open. -___- No chance in hell you'd change your mind on that one?Originally Posted by strych9ine
If not, I'd better start doing portraits like nobody's business...
Strych9ine, no way I'll go easy on you, that would mean certain defeat for me.
I'll definitely need the luck. Good luck to you too.
Most to all of the judges who helped out in round one said that they were happy to help out in later rounds, I just have to make the roster for this round. I might rotate them in and out to get a fresh perspective on the pieces, so we're lucky to have a very talented group of judges with different styles and tastes. We're in good hands.
OLSEN, I always dug your work man, I'm pretty psyched to have been paired up with you this round. Now we can comb each other's hair, talk about boys, play dress up...
Can I join?Originally Posted by strych9ine
Sure Strych9ine, I'm up for some dressing up and girl talk. I'll bring some body paint so we can combine pleasure with business.
