Pop Quiz 8 Winners!

Many thanks to everyone who participated in Pop Quiz 8, from our first-timers (welcome!) to old friends returning after a long absence (hi Solander!).

Since everyone only gets one entry with these single-day affairs, I like to show them all. So without further ado, your entries!

I particularly wanted to pull out Myro’s entry, which made me laugh right out loud.

As you can see, picking a winner has not been easy. After a lot of wailing and gnashing of the teeth, out of a set of seven Finalists (dblade, demonhunter, Jeremy Thurlow, LoneWolf6155, Mad Doctor, MLS, and Trekkie), I came down to two:

MLS

Mad Doctor

I really liked MLS’ entry, but something about having the entire bird head above the human’s eyes unsettled me. At least I think that’s what was holding me back. But I loved the “Battle of the Planets” throwback look.

Regardless, I finally decided to go with Mad Doctor. Congratulations! I liked the vaguely menacing feel to it and the nice use of color. I probably would have chosen a more steamy looking item for the steam but even with that, I thought it was super. And I am not even a fan of steampunk generally.

Many thanks to all of you who shared your creativity, I really appreciate it!

    Nice job everyone!

  2. Those are incredible! I think the brain-in-a-jar is my favorite.

  3. Great job, Mad Doctor. Very steamy and punkish.

    Also, nice job everyone. Some fine pieces there.

  4. Grat the finalist.

  5. Congrats Mad Doctor! That is a great-looking helmet- those red eyes are definitely rather menacing.

    Also, I loved Myro’s entry, really funny!

  6. Ugh I love headgears, I would of so loved to participate but just got on now and seen it. Man and I could of gone with an awesome been mug helmet too LOL. Congratuations guys and gals. Early bird gets the worm I guess, but the second mouse gets the cheese :P

  7. Congrats, Mad Doctor! Though, I admit to liking your Death Priest’s mask more. Great stuff, all!

    The Pop Quiz format is fun. A great blend of serious and silly entries.

    @Lime: Gracias for the TMBG reference.

    @Ximero: Nice work with the Moschepsut headress. I can actually picture the insectoid or alien that would wear it.

  8. YAY!!! My work is done. :D

    Congrats Mad Doctor, that’s some fine looking steam punk you got there.

  9. WeepingAngel23

    Congrats

  10. Congrats, everyone! Really cool designs.

  11. @ The Atomic Punk: Thank ya kindly :) Yup, it’s indeed made for some insectoid species (viz. the Hive World reference), with some Egyptian stylisation somehow having wormed its way in… so to speak. If you look closely enough, you’ll see it’s predominantly made of footwear bits ;) (and 2 buckles in place of the ‘double tiara’) – and you probably have, since your own Drow gear also cleverly used non-specific items incl. polearm bits and such. Good job there, btw – one of my faves, alongside Kytana’s, iGusta’s, FRM’s, Trekkie’s, XavierKing’s, Haxxx’s, Madpac’s, Vampyrist’s and Myro’s – yeah, and dblade’s, but he’s dblade, so ;) kinda goes without saying)

    So yeah, congrats, Mad Doc (and the finalists + all those who tried their hand & mind at it). It’s one of those works that quickly grow on you, i would say :) And i like it that you turned the sci-fi musket thingie into some type of antenna.

  12. Gratulation(all)! The winner entry look great.

    Hmmm….I’ve never thought about it before, but I could actually convert it into a Hero Machine-ready Art asset. I might try it just for fun and then Jeff could add it if he wanted to.
