Thanks guys for the critiques. I need to practice to understand shadows and light. It is something I really struggle with. I did a quick paint-over.
I don't have much to give back in terms of critiques but I really like Mitze entry.
My vote went to Albino because... Well because it fucking rules!!!
voted for mitze, devilminer, martinC and kahel,
i try always to vote for originality, and idea, despite spectularity, and awesomess of rendering, just because, rendering lighting and stuff we can learn, and thats why most of us are here, to train and get better in that design after design, as we resolve "problems", but idea and originality is something that should be voted, because, that in the end, will make any concept stand out, regardless of illustration skills.
And thats the only reason i didnt vote for albino-z, like so many who voted i thing the rendering is amazing, but, the idea is too generic, and "safe" seen it couple of times, and that why i see it as, "wooo i d love to ilustrate like that...but wheeee he could have pulled with the rendering sklls he have, the idea much, much further, and challenged himself"
omg forgot grunler, althought its unfinished, i really like the idea and linework, so altough it isnt in the vote list, you got my vote
This was an epic round, i´m a little frustrated that a lot of great concepts didn´t make it to the poll, for example and typing fast... ded, pixeltuner, pixelslayer, dranyer, geb, peperjester, johandevenecia, continue, daniorrr, bnoch, etc, etc...
I mostly vote (in general) based on if i feel motivated to see the character in a movie (film or animated, realistic or toon) or in a short film, or in a book cover. If the character looks like it has an existence beyond us.
In that, and imo, i think characters by Johan de Venecia, Daniorrr and specially by Jon n are the ones i´d like to see, they seem to exist somewhre, and have a going relationship and a background history.
I enjoyed the Devilminer concept a lot too, maybe a little extreme and almost crossing the line of not following the brief.
I felt inspired by Grumbleputty progress too.
