Props to Oddo for taking that much time to give everyone a little C.
( About mine, I know what your saying , not really happy with the piece for the same reason you are )
Dave Palumbo and Eriboss: yours are probably my favorite pieces of the entire tdome!!

the stupid thai scanner dont do my drawing any justice!

Once u BOON u don't go back
Here's my two cents for this section.
TheBrave-I'm a sucker for giant, city looming monsters. Great color and textures.
GrooverMcNab-My favorite graphic piece of the competition! The blood splatter and background design is a really beatiful contrast. Why didn't I think of that.
Dougbot-My favorite in this section! The ambigous landscape and place really reinforces the concept. I liked the explanation at the bottom, interesting indeed . Very powerful piece!
RedRook-Dynamic composition. Good stuff.
Jason Manley-haha, this one made me laugh. Great color circulation.
James Kei-Beautiful piece. particularily the right half.
Boon-Wow. I won't tell you you have beautiful line work, because you already know that (haha!). Your one twisted kid, haha.
JasonChan-Beautiful reds and sensitive marks. Nice concept too.
DavePalumbo-Nice work. Reminds me of the movie falling down.
This section there are so many equally amazing pieces! Rusty's, love the color and action; Sinix's graphic is so damn cool, krytical error's is just so unusual, TheBrave is rocking some great color and composition there; Loomer's juxtapoz of graphic and render is cool, dougbot, i demand u to build that bug!!! i wan to ride it.... jk. the flesh tone is soooo nice i can touch it already. yAdam's reminds me of a myth i might have known but forgot... James Kei's is so daunting... LOOK OUT man! right on top of u!!! Boon's just gets me right here.... wish to see it in color. So's Jens! what a lovely scarry pic... want to see Jason Chan's bigger! so much details i want to take in... Greentopaz, curious, r those real creatures looking at the human? creepy... Oregano, your creature is so well done, love the color and textures! Matt Dixon, yours is very touching and real to me. the haunting stare of the little girl... GHill, ha, totally relevent and relatable! Everybody else! sorry for being a lazy bum and not write the whole thing.... there are just too many... Love, till the next round we meet(might, might meet)!!!!!!!!
My top fav outa these is Jason Chan's
but some others I really liked were: Thebrave, Dougbot, Rusty, James Kei, Michael CTY, Dave Palumbo, and Yumiko. I liked a lot of others too, but those stood out more to me.
Another awesome group.
(Cody - I crack up EVERY time I see that sad puss!!)
Just to name a few faves: Dougbot, Mr.Vsions, loomer, Grendal Grack, JasonChan, DaveP, Okevlin...and more.

So many gems!
Gotta say my favorite without a doubt is.....
Loomer - Scott, I absolutely love your piece. It's a real knockout! ....get it? bwah bwah bwaaaah.
Lots of other beauts in this batch. Dougbot - wow. Mecha Hate Chimp - love the simplicity of the design, yet so effective in execution (another bad pun). Uziel - very sobering concept.... wish the walls were treated differently though. James Kei - My nightmares look like this. Boon - I would love to have seen a lithographic style coloring on this. Very strange, very cool. Oregano - I keep placing National Lampoon type in the image. It fits so well! Matt Dixon - ....another sobering concept, I went from laughing my ass off looking at Loomer's, to deep sadness looking at yours in a matter of seconds. Powerful piece, my second favorite in the batch. MD powah! Hunger_Artist - I love the style. I'm not sure how it fits the theme, but man, I dig it anyway.
I like this thread the best out of the three. Really hard to choose a favourite from all the beauties in here, but Dave Palumbo's takes my eye every time I scroll through. A gold star for you, sir!
Best of luck to Purb36 and flatliner, and congratulations to all!
really looking at each piece makes me love them all even more. I have new favs too!
Stacey Diana beautiful effects! Strong story from Matt Dixon!
I am in love with more entries! Garboartpage, Ninja_ASSN, Michael CTY ,BOON, Grendel Grack, Red Rook, yAdam, TheBrave all have my heart!
My 31-60 favorites:
Maybe I'm a bastard, but i can't stop laughing at that piece, Dave. it's as much editorial as it is fantasy/book cover material.Originally Posted by Matt Dixon
2.5 days to go, i bet you're cranking out 5 more right?
dave im just curious, did you use Boris Vallejo as reference? If you did, I wanna ask you to use him as reference in every tdome piece you do
I thought the same thing! - It's certainly got a bit of the Vallejo about it - even looks a bit like him! Reminds me of his Doc Savage paintings.Originally Posted by Main Loop
haven't got much time,so i'll just say great entries guys.
props to my competitors; gloklund,nice atmosphere,mr.visions,beautiful painting,although i don't get where the beginning of the end is...?
anyways,good luck to everyone! lookin forward to next round.
Wow! I think I'm gonna OD on eye candy. What can I say that hasn't been said already. Great work everybody.
Thanks for the crit Oddo. And good luck loizze. Really like your idea.
Some of my favs: Mecha- nice one, Dave- strong work dude!, Dixon- Cool image and the theme is very creative, I always love ur ideas!
Blaz-Nice image dude!
Micheal CTY- interesting image and like your colors!
There are more to many to comment on impressive entries everyone!
crazy crazy crazy.. Loomer wins as my favorite entry this round.. By far the most genius and its extremely well executed too... Congrats...
Ploy- you did the do.. I knew you were going to come out with something super excellent.. thanks for laying down the smack down!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Just wanted to say good job everybody, still taking my time to check it all out.
Theres are some really great pieces.
Glad I could participate on this.
I'm just sorry that so many people dropped out, they could have at least warned before because there was still many people left out that wanted to enter!
Just wanna say a big thanks to everyone that said kind words. I agree with a few of the crits, and my next paint will be quite different. I think I'm gonna try and get back to some of my less static things I used to do. Rely on some real *drawing* as opposed to painting.
RES, you've seriously lifted your game there, nice one. And Luxun, for a young un that's pretty damned good!
Gotta say I absolutely love yAdam's entry and think the UK crew totally represented this time.
The level of art in this round has just been staggering. I haven't had a chance to look through the other two rounds yet, as I've been kinda busy (currently living on friends' couches, and have been at a festival worshipping celestial bodies all weekend. Yeah, you know what I mean..)
Will say more when I get a chance.
I didn't get to see any of this until yesterday. Some damn cool stuff. Groover I'm really digging that piece, I like how it flows through. Danomight, your's turned out awesome too, has a cool Akira vibe to it. I thought the three of us really did some cool things, and grew a bit as artists.
I should take the type of my piece, it's a bit cheesey. I always panic with my stuff "Oh this is too dumb, nobody but me will get it" kind of crap. Still, I like it more than most my stuff. Some serious perspective issues need to be addressed, and parts need to be pushed back a bit more.
Awesome stuff all around.
