    Couldn't agree more. That and going against a good team makes you work harder..
    I shit canned like 3 tags before going with the one entered. Anyway, I'm pretty impressed with everyone's work.

    I'll try my VERY best at what I deem fit to win.

    Eth's Team

    1. I'll just say I know that there were things that were out of your control to take this picture, but I still have to slam it for the things in it.The two poles in the water look weird and out of place. If they weren't there, it would look a lot more amazing. Technically, you could have tried to do it in PS, but it might have either fucked it up, or make it look even more amazing. If you were trying to preserve the way you only used the camera to take this, then fine. That speck in the middle, slightly to the left, is also annoying my slightly. It MIGHT look a bit more plain without the pole and speck, or it might look better. I can't tell at this point. Nevertheless, it's a good shot. The colors blend very well together and give it a really refreshing look with the slight orange and the coolness of the photo makes it all that much better. The rocks in front make the photo less empty, so that's a good thing.

    2. If you were going to replicate both sides together, and only have one side B&W, it would have been a good idea to keep them both symmetric. The smudges at the bottom make it slightly odd, since the rest of the piece is symmetrical. The coloring is good, yet they don't go together all that well. Some parts of it have complimenting colors, others had odd colors. Pixely, I can't argue about that, except I could ask for a bigger sized piece. The actual art in it, however, is well done. The birds, skulls, maybe not the multiple triforces as much, but still greatly done.

    3. Well, shit. Never seen anything like this before, so it's hard to question it. Placement of everything is pretty well done. Blending could use work, such as those wires near his legs. They don't look like they're supposed to be there. A closer look to it shows it. The green patch beneath it is really making it so I bash it more. Why is it there? Why is it just a big bulging patch of light green? I question it. The colors in general of this piece is really great. Transitions go well, colors are something I've never seen done before oddly enough, and it really intrigues me. I like it.

    Doc's Team

    1. Like I said before, the lights that hit some points of the piece just doesn't look like it should be there. Even if it should, it looks very unnatural. The first thing that I look to, is the upper left. I know that's not the focus of it, but for some reason, that's just where my eyes are headed towards. Since that's where it's going, I take a closer look. The smoke effect looks really weird in this kind of theme. Space stocks, yes, there's smoke and stuff, whatever that fog is, but this looks like something you'd get from on the Earth. Ignoring the rest of those facts, it's a great piece you did. It feels like I'm in space, and the rocks seem very naturally done. That's a big plus in your favor.

    2. Blurry. Lighting is good, but too many sparkles everywhere. Text, unlikeable. It's not the best you've done.

    3. This is great and all, but not the best either. Colors, composition, depth, all fine and great. It does, however, seem cluttered. It's as if I'm trying to see the whole picture instead of just a section as a focus, with the others as background of some sort.

    I got lazy at the end here.

    I'm going for ETHALICRW.

    Thank God I'm not in the voting team, this is hard as fuck.

    Team ETHALICRW:

    I like the tags, especially the middle one, but what bothers me is the broken symmetry, like Matt said.

    The last tag is fine, but my eyes are like all over it. It's chaotic! Oversharpened in places where it shouldn't be.

    As far as the LP goes, I was expecting some Illy awesomeness from Jimmy. The photography is fine, but it was supposed to be something more WOW-ish for a Big team battle, IMO.

    Team DOCERORY:

    I've stated my opinion in the showroom about the LP; too much negative space and too blurry, despite the efforts the artist may have put in it (which I respect).

    The middle tag is my favourite in the whole battle, but the text is weird, like really really weird. It's sharpened decently, but slapped on a weird spot because the background looks blurry and it's just not eye pleasing.

    Last tag is good at first sight, but details missing as I try to analyze it further. Missing blending spots on the left of the render (around the gun). The mixture of quality is weird where the render looks completely anime and the background is half animated and half realistic. Looks like one of those "slap a render onto the background and go" kind of tags. At least in my eyes.

    I too, go for Team ETHALICRW. (Not that my opinion is valued, though)

    Did all three of you (per team) make the thing by yourself? Or did everyone in the team work on it ?
