Are there be any plans to put up a public poll for favorite pieces?
Something completely unrelated to the judging.
it's the fucking details-atleast in my case mop. also as far as i can remember it was stated that they hadn't to absolutely fucking be 800x600 but could be bigger aswell...just don't go over the top with it,as far as i remember.
btw coondoogle-brilliant piece.can't stop laughing.
I think this is the best thunderdome ever. It seems like everyone out did themselves. What happens to those people that had opponents that did no shows, I think I went through all the pages and I am the only one that had a no show? bRayN wienered out on me...
thanks to Strych9ine and the judges to make it all possible.

yea, would be nice to get started again.. some of us have been done with our pieces for quite some time, and we need something new to dig in to! great work with the competition...
I'm going to wait until the judges have turned in their results to announce the next round. Gotta make sure everyone has the same time frame to work with. I'm going to send out the info to the judges tonight.
I just downloaded all the pics to my hard-drive so I could sell them to... er... so I could browse them all at my leisure... and the folder is 25 meg! Wow... alot of art, if you're buying it by the pound! And Xia... stop swearing so fucking much!
so many scary demons...
well done to cody and ALL the competitors, and judges my heart goes out to you all.
Just sent out the judgin information to all of our 7 judges. Look to see results for the competition sometime next weekend. Until then, get to drawing...
does that mean we gotta wait till next weekend for the next topic as well?
Thats correct Form, 9 wants those who make it to round two to all have the same time in which to create their entry.
Amazing entries by many, just jaw-dropping. Android, Marko, Chen, Prostate, Pudding and so many others just on a level by themselves (with quite a few snapping at their heels).
Doug, really liked yours as well, can almost hear the low booming chants!
Mike, one of your most eye-catching pieces, way to push yourself!
Cheers all, John
that sucks, i might actually have to do some uni work now
to jack frost's credit, i got an email from him with an attachment of his entry, asking me to host it for him since he would be out of town at siggraph.
unfortunately, i was out of town too at the same time and didn't get get his email till tonight. I am just catching up on everything now, looks like I missed a lot.
thanks for setting this up cody, you rock!
yeh, good point. didnt think of it that way ;D
My tips for the winners of each battle (CAPS for those I think will win, ~ where it's very close): http://users.bigpond.net.au/laing/ph...me/r1-tips.txt
I'm looking forward to seeing how close I am.
Favourites: MIKECORRIERO, Dougbot, nicolas, Summer Pudding, Sammy, Marko Djurdjevic, Prostate Sunrise, Android, JasonChan, xia, Chris J. Anderson!
And to my competitor, Britt, really love the design work, only wished you'd coloured it.
What's going to happen with the dual drop out, will that mean one person goes through round 2 automatically or the next person on the reserve list comes in?
It was stated very clearly in the rules that images should be no larger than 800x600 (or 600x800 is acceptable too I guess, portrait orientation) - yet we have a whole bunch of entries at 1000+ pixels!
Yeah, I would have liked mine to be bigger. Sort of used to following art director and client size requirements. I would have loved a 1000 pixels. Actually maybe it helps hide all the crap in mine.
I think, if I had to pick my favourite of the whole lot, it'd be either Poshspice's or Marko's, but there are *so* many others that are just about as awesome!
I was just returning from Venice after 16 hours on the road and what do i get to see? this.
9: it would be great if you cleared up, who of those on the reserve list are gonna make it for round 2. i counted 8 lacking entries with form and ptree3 already having joined in. that would mean, i'm not in. which can't be, because i would have to kill someone. which, however, can be. just kidding. not.
tell me i'm in.
Sorry man, from now on no reserves will be asked to join in. It wouldn't be fair to the people who had to battle it out in round one. Next time, my man, next time...
LALALALA I CANT HEAR YOU LALALALA
From all of us on the reserve list, to all of you who got a spot, but for whatever reason didnt submit a piece:
Fuck you. Thank you all for taking a shit on our seats.
To all of you who DID finish: Man, this is by far the biggest artgasm i've had in a long time. I cant wait for round 2!
cody this was very sucessful!!! i had a lot of fun with it. i wish i was a better painter... the pencil drawings were all missing something surrounded by all the full color demons.
very cool works everyone. oh and coondoggle yours was one of my favorites... no need for a poll to tell ya that.
i cant wait to see the round two entries.
LOTR, Halo, Heroes Sketchcards from Topps
Have to agree with Midnight on this one - Poshspice & Marko did it for me.
(Yours wasn't so shabby, by the way, Mid - could have popped more, but I loved the 'Lena' bit...... seriously cool! )
There were tons of great entrys! Good job to all who managed to not just show up, but put forth their best efforts. I really enjoyed the experince, and hopefully will be better prepared in the future to face a pro like Poshspice.
Sooooo Foz, about that next C.O.W. thread...
