Had to create a temporary (I hope) username just to be able to chime in and say WOW, there are some really stellar pieces this time around. Coro, the color and temperature shifts in the "Literal" half of your piece is . Had to right click save that and Dave's entry. Pity to pit you two against each other so early on! Love Shelly's piece, of course. Has that old school Dean Cornwell/Frank Brangwyn-juicy-paintstroke look on rendering the human form. So many other great pieces! Icono, IncredibleAndy, ALL of Match 11 and 21, Loomer, Sinix (such a big fan of your work), redehlert, Vyle and Whoami.... Cheers you guys!

i have just seen so many boys turn into men (AKA: the progression of 1000yrs in a heart beat) from so many of you
images i did not expect from some of you
first and foremost..helzon
my boy you have been working your ass off and it shows...brilliantly
mr manly: this is not ass kiss, that is one of the most beautifull pics i have seen in a looong time and a great painted translation (value mainly) of a metallic print ( not that one was involved but first thing i thought)
el coro: you are still in my eyes a "legendary hero" not just a professional
proteus: stark disturbing and i hope the onlooking trooper made his escape at that moment
redehlert: you alreaddy know what i think you bastard hope you make it to san fran ill try to convince nathan next week when im in NJ
mike corrriero: lovely as always, and this time not as sinister hope we can chill whn i get to jersey, wont make it to AOL but i will be in NY that day, drinks on me
m@: very poitical very nice
posh: i hate you for being so good will you teach me? .....oh wait i mean i LOVE you for being so good
strych: love the concept love the execution
mr visions: so few and far between i see color from you and i wish it was more frequent!
mr chan: (wait your alot younger than me arent you? hahahaha)
amazing work very different from your normal work
and on top of all these familiar names i see very unfamiliar ones destroying all that is lame with amazing work i have been on here a while and regret never seeing many of you because you blew me away!
i just hope that this spirit of competition will hold un till the next round AND next lms
its made many of you better
(oh and i would love to know WHEN the next lms is...i always seem to be the last to know hahahah)
GREAT work everybody, very seriously
Wow, amazing stuff people. Thunderdome gets better every time. I don't even know where to begin in telling which are my favourites. So many weird, wonderful, horrific, sexy and mind-blowing pieces.
Still too many puss-outs though. Dang.
awesome work all around!!!!!!
cant wait for next round if I make it that is.... Hurri, kudos, may the best man win indeed ^^
wow after I put my eyeballs back into the holes I`m still speechless, great work everybody
was there a sign in somewhere for this contest or how is this working?
Damnit! I'm running out of spare heads!
Too much to comment on - I'll have a better look later.
Well done to my group buddies/enemies - glad you both got one done (too many pussouts in here!). I already regret leaving mine so late. Crap!
Ehem... strych9ine - can you sign me up for LMS 3?!
yeah... wow... serious eyegasm....artgasm..... I will now weep for the beauty you have all added to the world... but I will weep softly for I am at work...
As always...the work here is just phenomenal. Incredible effort as always.
Hats off to my fellow battle mates...Gringoloco and johanson.
Great work fellas.
fuck, all are nice! I was expecting a bit more from alot of people though. That includes Jason Chan... and the fact that both of his competitors "Pussed out", well that gets a rolleyes from me. Coro kicked ass with his nice piece. Kenji. Matt Dixon, Dave Palumbo, Sinix, Dougbot, Whoami, Dutton all got my attention pretty quickly... and my TD partners Helzon & Johanson got some serious shit going on! Excellent work by them both. Overall, round 2 really made an impression on me... good luck to all of you!
Favs for this round: David Smit, Main Loop, Poise, Tyranx, viag, theBrave, Loomer, coro, Iconophobian, Romance, Dixon.
Rusty: I think it's an early bath for me old son. Great piece.
wooooottt amazing stuff all the way, maaaaaannnn!!!
Damn I wish I had a better camera, now that there are all these digital pieces I see how shitty the colors really got on my shot , damn cam!
Again, great work everyone, you make me proud
Inspiring! Thanks for giving maximum effort. Awesome everyone who finished this round.
Poise! El Coro!
Shadoman, intense! Good job.

wow man...my eyes just turned into penises and i couldn't find an appropriate slot on my pc...so many gorgeous entries...simply breathtaking...good thing i didn't advance from first round afterall (although the royal skullfuck might have been worth it)
Holy shit gang!! This is a top-notch show of some amazing talent. I loved all of the different takes on such a short topic.
Ploboyko and Gloom, great work guys. Thanks for showing up and good luck...
Need to scroll through again.
