Hey, it’s May 1st. Who’s excited about Age of Ultron?!?! I am definitely watching this movie this weekend. I just have to find a babysitter or sneak out and not tell my husband. 🙂
5/1/15 Top Pick; Iron Tron
Color – Awesome glowing red flame and cool blue light effect.
Content – Nice mash-up concept with Tron.
Thank You djkopet

Another movie I’m excited to watch this summer!
5/1/15 Top Pick; From the Ashes of This World
Color – BeastPop’s color schemes are aways radical! His designs aways POP.
Composition – Amazing artist! I love watching his process through Facebook. His compositions are aways very active, exciting, and well-balanced.
Thank You BeastPop

Loving the season so far, but glad I haven’t read the books. The season sounds like it has been veering significantly away from the books.
5/1/15 Top Pick; The Last Hand Standing
Composition – Interesting combination of image and type. The type acts almost like part of the image.
Lines & Forms – Great simplified render of the Game of Thrones characters. I really enjoy how very little info is given in the background to reveal the characters.
Thank You Laughing Devil

Good and evil. Light and dark. Positive and negative. Day and night. Any of these dichotomies could describe the relationship between adoptive brothers Thor and Loki. I present this conflict today in the form of two designs.
It’s not hard to imagine Loki embracing his power and status among the ancient civilizations is it? With that charm, wit, and cunning one couldn’t help but feel the presence of a god.
07/01/14 Top Pick; Loki-Tut
Composition – Bold, well-balanced render of this God of Mischief.
Texture – I love the repeated horizontal lines in this design creating dynamic patterns. The small intricate lines create a variety of textures throughout the design. I especially enjoy the circular lines in the horns.
Thank You Jimiyo

The metaphorical “light in the darkness” comes through here quite literally with the God of Thunder, Thor! While he may not be able to match Loki’s brains, he makes up for it with his formidable brawn. He also has a great butt, just ask Natalie Portman. 😛
07/01/14 Top Pick; God of Thunder Returns
Composition – Beautiful and dynamic angle. The figure is also in a great action pose.
Color – Wonderful use of positive and negative space. I really enjoy the teal thin outline around the negative space figure. The bright stark thunder bolt creates a wonderful contrast against the dark scene.
Thank You Six Eyed Monster

06/18/14 Top Pick; Bete De L’Apocalypse
Great design depicting Hellboy as a prancing demon, labeled with his real name Anung Un Rama (“Upon his brow is set a crown of flames”).
Color – Nice creamy light yellow paired with the deep crimson red creates a nice contrast.
Concept – Interesting concept of having Hellboy look like the infamous French Quina Imp Poster.
Thank You Spicy Monocle

06/18/14 Top Pick; Headlight Glasses
His side slicked hair, light gray suit, and bright red tie make Pee-Wee easily recognizable.
Composition – Wonderfully balanced frame around main figure. The horrors of the forest seem to surround poor Pee-Wee.
Lines and Forms – Each animal is nicely formed and rendered in an etch like quality. I really enjoy the bear in the top right. His open mouth and glowing eyes look amazing.
Thank You Dave Quiggle

06/18/14 Top Pick; Dark Fiction
Both seductively appealing and horned, this is a match made in hell.
Concept – These two super villains would make an awesome evil team! These two would definitely “shepherd the week though the valley of darkness”.
Lines and Forms – Nice, clean simplified render of both characters.
Thank You Zerobriant

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Avengers of Shield
“Earth’s mightiest heroes”. The design is a nice circular badge-like composition, segmented with a character in each compartment. Together, they form the shield. Each hero is nicely rendered using positive and negative space. The small white details make them pop and give each hero their identity while giving the design complexity.
Thank You Alecxps

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Great Scott!
“There’s that word again. “Heavy.” Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?” A deliciously clever mash-up of Back to the Future and Scott Pilgrim! Scott Pilgrim is portrayed here by Marty McFly as he performs his “Go, Johnny Go!” scene from the end of Back to the Future. Wonderful line and color render of the figure. I enjoy the typography treatment of the letter forms especially the thunderbolt T’s. The large white letters nicely balance the colorful figure underneath.
Thank You Coinbox Tees

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; ESCAPE
When the president or his family is trapped in a major U.S. city surrounded by savages, who are you gonna call? It’s gotta be Kurt Russells’s one-eyed, warrior persona “Snake”! Wonderfully distressed, this figure is rough and ready to rumble. I very much enjoy the unnecessary, but much appreciated detail to the figure’s hair. The design’s bottom is very nice balanced to the top. Although they are similar, I enjoy that they are not entirely identical.
