Pop Quiz 20 Results

Many thanks to everyone who entered Saturday’s Pop Quiz, and my apologies for the extra day taken to go through them. Without yet more delay, therefore, I am happy to present everyone who tackled the challenge of putting together an image using one hand item and no other body parts!

Although I’d love to hear which ones you liked the most, my personal favorites were by Atomic Punk, djuby, Prowler Knight, Jack, NHA247, Skybandit, and Thundersong. Out of those, I’m going with the entry by djuby as my top choice to be our Featured Creator:

The colors, the figure design the font choice, and the clever use of the hand all contribute to an effective and cool image.

Congratulations to djuby and to everyone who entered!

  1. Thanks so much. I’m a huge fan of this site, and honoured to have been chosen.

  2. Gratulate everyone whose enter. I’m a little bit envy, but i really don’t have any good idea. Everyone make a good job. Btw nice pictures and great ideas.

  3. MisterDinoMan

    Congratulations Djuby, very impressive work.

  4. Gratulation, djuby! Is this a crane(or what mean you with krail?)?

  5. Just made up the name. Imagined it to be some kind of prehistoric bird – not unlike the terror birds of South America – but domesticated and ridden armoured into battle.

  6. Congrats Djuby.

    Personally, I like Xavierking’s use of “shadowspace”, I thought that Prowlerknight’s scorpion was really cool, being that it’s ALL made from just the 1 hand and also, I liked the originality of Jack’s shadow figure.

  7. A warbird. Well, if it hadn’t won, it would’ve helped mine eat the others out of spite! No, relax–mine only eats rubber bands. Congrats ev1!

  8. Finding the use of the hand for me is like finding Waldo in a world of many Waldos… Unless absolutely apparent.

  9. Congrats to all the entrants, and djuby on the win. Like Harlequin, I just couldn’t come up with an idea on this one, so good job on those people that did.

    Worf: Congrats Djuby.Personally, I like Xavierking’s use of “shadowspace”, I thought that Prowlerknight’s scorpion was really cool, being that it’s ALL made from just the 1 hand and also, I liked the originality of Jack’s shadow figure.

    Thanks Worf, and I agree on the other two.

  11. Congrats, djuby!

    I noticed you designed an awesome terror bird after I posted mine. Most of the time, I do not browse other entries while I am thinking of ideas. That way I am not influenced and original as I can be.

    Personal favorites: Marquis Samedi’s Handbot, Watson Bradshaw’s Handquiz, and Xavier King’s Batman Shadow.

    Surprised that Xavier King’s entry was allowed to stand. But, Jeff makes the calls. It has a very “Batman: TAS” vibe to it.

  12. Thanks Atomic. I joined this community a little while ago after using HM3 for about a 6 months. I started seeing these amazing images displaying techniques that I did not even know were possible. (ie: the work of Scatman and AMS) The reason I finally joined was to learn more about what HM3 was capable of doing; hell, I didn’t even use masking til a few weeks ago. These artists inspire me with their creativity, and I am influenced by them in that I aspire to their mastery of this program’s possibilities, but not to their, or anyone else’s, ideas. I am sure that you did not mean to imply otherwise.

    Heyla!

    A hearty congrats to Djuby for being given top honors! That is quite a creation!!! Wish I had thought of something like that! But, no…I went the traditional route with the “tentacles” thingy. LOL!

    Although…I did have something similar in mind with what NHA247 did. But scrapped it after it was looking a bit wrong and couldn’t figure out what to do and went with what I did.

    I also do not look at the entries until after I post my entries up. IF I did…I’d be too intimidated to enter any contest!!! LOL!

    This was not an easy one! Congrats to all who entered!

  14. Thanks Thundersong. I was quite shocked to win, as I was sure that I had misinterpreted the instructions and that I was supposed to have created a humanoid. My personal favourite is the scorpion by prowlerknight. Stunning.

  15. Impressive.
