Me and the Nougat give you. . ..

Perfect Storm

Two badass crazy energy powered ladies, with a taste for violence. They wield sharp weapons and even sharper ego's. These girls won't give you a second chance to re-think dumping them, trust me.

We didn't really give them individual names though did we? Meh. Mines on the left, Nouggie's is on the right, and I threw together the sloppy filter raped background and text.

Props to Nougat for a GREAT idea, color scheme, title, and artistry. I had a lot of fun with this round, and I hope you all did too!

Please view the Higher Res. version in the portal!

4 Hours left, then voting begins! I'm thinking we should hold off on Doubles 10 as well, there are plenty of great threads going on to join up in, and if we take a break it will probably bring in a larger/newer crowd when its up again. Probably a month or so. If you are totally against this lemme know, because I have no problem hosting it for you guys/gals, I just think it might be time for a snooze.

The Soloist and Pop Princess!

When an over-eager tour organiser double books these two very different acts on the same stage, They are left with no choice but to do battle in the most sacred of ways...

Hey if we had the time I'm sure we could of made something spectacular but you did what you could with the time alotted and I think it still looks great.

I hope everyone had fun working on this doubles showdown, which really is a great contest to work with another artist.

Cheers Alex.

Ahhhhh,
we couldn't finish.
Actually there were some communication problems in our team and I hadn't enough time. I finished my part a few minutes ago but I couldn't reach ashman, I have no idea if he's done, maybe he even never started working because he waited for my part :(

It would be really nice if I could have another morning (european time) to try reaching ashman or finish it on my own. If you start voting tomorrow afternoon it would be finished till then.
Otherwise you would miss: fire! explosions, destruction and great conversations like:
"Excuse me Sir! Aren't you supposed to FIGHT the fire?"

I'm very sorry about how this ended (the start wasn't that great either)

Whats another day eh? I'll throw up the voting post when I get back from work tomorrow around 6ish, we extended a week already so it's really no biggie. Do what you can, I hope ashman comes through.

Was a pleasure working with you Mr. Nougat! I think our badass babes came out wonderfully! And of course it would have been better had we put more into it, BG and etc. but I still think it's nice :)

Good job by everyone, this was a great turnout so far. I will get into hard core critiquing mode of everyone's work (which everyone should try to do) when it's time to cast my vote.

No response :(

But I don't want to blame him, it was kinda my fault.
I didn't have the time I needed for this collab..

So our/my duo had a little accident.

"I think you're ash, man!"

I know the second villain isn't that great... but I had no time to do the background and a second character...

Thanks for late join (if this counts...)

1) Manray and The Dirty Bubble - Although it wasn't original characters, I thought it was beautifully executed and brought me back to my younger days
2) Betty Boufant - Only you girls could pull off the hero/villian story about heroic hairdoos, I love it ladies
3) To Blam and Protect - Nothing says "you've been blammed" like a sledgehammer to the skull

1-Team Temarae/Renaeniix with Betty Bougant and Madamed Dread
You knew how to capture that real comic-booky superheroe look. You went for the dvd-box look, and executed it very well, it looks just real.
The characters could have been more similar, atm it looks like madam dread got less detail then Betty.
You could also have made the characters more super-y if you know what I mean. Right now they (especially betty) dont really exhibit any supernatural powers...
2-Team Idiot-kow/Nemonarch with Manray and the Dirty Bubble
Artistically debatably the best this run. But, however admirable they are, they arent original characters... Besides that, the general composition could be way more super... right now they arent really supervillains as much as general villains....
Manrays left arm and hand are anatomically incorrect (both his upper and lower arm should be longer... His little finger seems bend in a weird way), besides that he seems a bit fat.
Coloring is very nice, the shading on manrays left hand is a bit off, as well as on his beltbuckle/pants.
As I said, its a great piece of art, just a shame you didnt go for original characters
3-Team Awesome-nougat/Henrysaurus with Perfect storm
the comic book cover... they seem like the out of the box superheroines...
The biggest problem would be that they dont really seems to be super... they just seem to be ordinary vigilantes with weird swords/daggers...
some more usefull advice:
The styles of the two girls dont really seem to match... they both wear jeans, but they are shaded worlds apart. The sword of the left one seems a bit awkwardly angled as well as way too big.
The right leg of the girl on the right seems to be disjointed and thin at the hip. In general those legs seem a bit hurried.
The torso of the girl on the right seems to be to big compared to the legs, the head seems to be to small.

as for the rest:
sorry guys, Im not going to post any comments on your work just now... Im way to wasted, and I have a class in 7 hours... arghn.... maybe later

For the "MECHA" 3 Points: TomGrumpy, with MECHA BOOBS:
Laughed everywhere i could, along with some areas i rather wouldn't laugh in. I'm proud of you, especially as you killed photoshop with your immense speed. Just sad to hear about FlashyGregory though, a real shame.
For a "FIREY" 2 points: Zung-Kreu, with
I THINK YOU'RE ASH, MAN! (Kreu-Zeng version)
:
The Character I like especially. It fits perfectly with the background, and it's good work. I also like the one with Ashman's character, although the jagged lines on ashman's one kinda throws it, so I chose Kreu's one. Good work, looking forward to your Doubles 10 entry (If you take part!).
And for a "BLAMMIFICAL" 1 point, Zero-M and jb-J, with TO BLAM AND PROTECT:
The Characters, Like Zung-Kreu's, are really nice, and the "Blam and protect" Logo rounds it all off. The enemies are nice and strong, albeit being a bit too closely coloured to the background, especially with the one on the left. Overall, though, a very nice piece of work. Well done.

Congratulations to all the otjer entries for getting yours in, unlike myself and angryglacier. I'll try my best in #10, though!

My votes:

1) Blam and Protect:
+ great concept and great style
+ you can really see them cooperate ans a superhero duo
+ great composition with the heroes in the center surrounded by their enemies
- too little contrast between background and left enemy
- too clean/straight horizon

2) Betty Bouffrant:
+ nice, original concept. could be some 70s comic
+ great shading/highlighting, I love Betty's hair
+ very clean stlye
+/- the background, it's not bad but something doesn't feel right

3) Pop Princedd and The Soloist:
+ funny concept
+ cartoonish look fits the superhero theme
+ color and background contrast between the 2
- the purple gloves don't fit into the contrast

_______________________________no specific order form here____________________________________

Big Robot Guy and Marion Fantoccini:
+ details on robot and background
+ the perspective of the house
- the rest (car, box, robot) are in an other perspective
- robot looks like pasted onto the picture (use same lightsource, shadows)

Manray and The Dirty Bubble:
+ very well drawn
+ neat background
+/- Dirty Bubble could have been transparent
- not original (heard that a lot I think ;) )

Crypto Deadcorpse:
+ funny characters
+ own logo
+/- maybe diffrent colors for the hills to get more contrast and depth
- more shading
- no villain-feeling

Mecha Boobs:
+ funny (reminds me of austin powers)
+ I like the frame/background
+/- maybe 3 fonts are a bit to much
- strange pose, maybe a trigger in on of the hands

Perfect Storm:
+ good composition
+ comicbook style
+ "special effects"
- the pose of the left girl looks a bit strange (sword looks twisted)
- the background looks a bit strange, the red and the blue/green don't fit

I hope this help and noone feels odfended!
And thanks for the points Blue, didn't expect to get any after seeing the other pics.
