CDC #434 – The Joker is here!

The stand alone Joker movie has opened to rave reviews. I have seen it. Spoiler Alert…it is great. I mean Oscar worthy great.

So in honour of the clown prince of crime, we are taking a trip to the circus this week. Your challenge is to create a unique and memorable villain based on characters –except for clowns - traditionally found inhabiting a traditional circus – except for clowns; ie: Ringmaster, side show freaks, strongman, etc. Did I mention no clowns?

The winner this week will receive my version of their design rendered in glorious MH3.

CDC #434 – Pimp My Post Apocalyptic Ride! – Results

Well I have to say I am surprised. I thought this contest would have people clambering to enter. Just goes to show that I don't know much...but I know what I like and I like all the entries this week; from Kellkin's post apocalyptic semi to HerrD's TacV. All brilliant! But two entries rang all the post apocalyptic bells for me.

First is runner up GW's Spiker

Great use of items and the colour choices are dead on.
