    Giants
    Contestants are to create a piece of artwork depicting a gigantic being or creature. It can be inspired from ancient mythology as long as it brings something interesting to look at and it's obviously immense in size.

    Theme Does the artist take advantage of the theme, or is the vision unfitting? /10%
    Execution Does the artist display the design in an effective manner, or is it hard to tell what is what? Are artistic techniques used effectively to make the character interesting, or does the style deteriorate the concept? Is the appearance of the design objectively pleasing, or is it of low quality? /25%
    Concept Does the design offer a new creative approach, or is it generic and cliché? Does it have character, or is it just another boring design? Does the design make sense and fit the description, or is it necessary to read the title to understand? /40%
    Realism Does the design balance, or are the proportions impractical? Is the anatomy or construction correct, does it allow the character to move as it should, or is functionality disregarded entirely? /25%
    • 75 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 25 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.
    [​IMG]
    Inviting your friends to vote for you, bribing random members with rep and otherwise cheating with the VB poll system will get you DISQUALIFIED, BANNED from future contests, -REPPED, and possibly INFRACTED. So don't do it!

    This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and interrogate you (hopefully) over PMs. <3​

    holy shit these are some good entries.

    marcos_dab, mr. goblin, and ugougo had really great execution. would not be surprised if all 3 of these guys either studying art/design or are professional artists.
    there were also entries whose concepts i thought were great, even if not executed as well as they could've been e.g. stein123, coldblows.

    but overall, my vote goes to grendel-. leviathan is not only really well drawn & realised, but it's one of the most creative entries here. i can see a lot of lovecraft and giger in that thing. i'd give him almost full marks in each judging criteria.

    edit: not that this is my area of expertise or of great concern to me, but if you're voting you should try to decide based on the judging criteria. seems like people are just voting for the prettiest one, which would be cool if this were an icon or skinning contest. it's not though, this is for concept art. but watevs it's a free country.

    Eh, one vote, not fair. I can't decide. There are quite a few entries which I wanna vote for and I can't pick one, no way.

    Why do non-multivote polls still exist at all :cgrin:?

    I think I'm just not gonna vote. Voting for one would be unfair to some other entries, which also deserve it.


    Anyways, interesting contest and great entries!

    To make sure that you vote with your head and not your heart all the time. That and being more responsible.

    That's just the way you see it. Casting one vote at a time is still a better option than not assert your vote at all(not that I urge all to vote at all costs. Not voting is another option entirely that I can understand).
    It can also make you think more than once before voting a specific entry, giving you more time to check all the entry and make a proper choice.

    Heh. Good try guys, not gonna happen though. If you cannot cope with choosing a single entry to cast your vote upon then you're not obliged to do so.
    I'd rather go with single choice voting for contest polls than have a multitude of spammed votes around. Sorry :)

    ...and, yes. Good contest, indeed it was.

    To me, the art of Coldblows seems most interesting and original.

    I cast my vote on UgoUgo not just because of amazing details and realistic look, but also the creativity on designing the giant makes his entry really worthful.
    Also, i want to ask what graphics tablets you guys use.. And i would like to hear a suggestion about a beginner tablet. I was planning to buy one for a long time and got few options. (If there's a topic already has opened about that, i would appreciate if you direct me)

    Well, I always check all the entries thoroughly, as I think most people do. Besides, single or multi vote poll won't prevent people from picking by heart and not brains or by picking without having looked well through all the entries. So I don't see how single-vote poll is a solution.
    Anyways, you made your point, we can just not vote.

    Well I did all of my resources with my mouse, but I am looking forward of buying one - if I don't have high priority necessities.
