It's nice to see some of these cool designs, but what bothers me is that they are all digital. And im not dissing on digital because that takes talent, but i would like to see a hand drawn one done completely in graphite with shading. that would be cool

You don't have to apologize. Just that so many people were griping about the lack of traditional art. Had to point it out.

I maintain there's no such thing as talent, just love, and if you love something enough to practice it, you'll get good! You can do it! :)

Congratulations to these amazing artists!
I'll never be so talented, but I'm happy you are. Thank you for allowing us to look at what we cannot express ourselves.

I've faved a few and commented on a few, but I admire them all. Amazing work, and in very different styles. I like how the judges picked works that weren't all the same.
Beautiful pieces!



Some of the replies here... Butthurt taken to new lows.

ok, i have gotten to page 5 on the comments. A lot of interesting pov. I wondered in what criteria did they use to select these semi finalists.
I wish they can judge with a clean mind on these points as they stated on their rules, techincal control - def as ability to draw well enough with the
understanding of the basics of visual language I.e. rendering of form, color, composition and etc with whatever medium.
Mood of the piece being what they described as "a scary situation"

Then creativity this could mean "design" of the creature or obj.
They should go down the three rules and make sure all semi finalist satisfy them in order to make it.

I made sure I satisfied that before I submitted though i didn't make it.

really? how is that constructive? if you look at it through the unbiased eyes of someone who isnt an ass hole youd notice that his entry is the only one of its kind making it unique. comic book art is also a major industry so for him to be inspired by it makes sense. its well thought out and skillfully executed. if that one was so terrible which image is yours then?
