Congratulations to the winners of Friday Night Fights 2, Round 1 (Friar Tuck): Me, Myself and I; Imp; JordanXord; Myro; VonMalcolm; Frevoli; DiCicatriz; and Gargoyle323!
The closes race was between JordanXord and Atomic Punk, with a margin of victory of just one vote! I don't think there's ever been a closer match, congratulations to JordanXord for pulling it out, and sympathies to Atomic Punk for the squeaker loss. VonMalcolm also only won by four votes (72 to 68 for Alex). Me, Myself, and I got the most total votes at 105, narrowly edging out Myro at 103 for the honor:
Those entrants not advancing to Round 2 (Cliff, Rozenstal, Atomic Punk, GeneH, Alex, Hammerknight, TJ, and Jean) will be added to Consolation Round 2 so everyone can see their Little John entries, along with everyone eliminated in the Play-In Round.
The winner of Consolation Round 1 (Friar Tuck) was AJW, nudging out Rancid by six votes. AJW wins his choice of either a) any item he likes to be included in HM3; b) any portrait he likes to be included in HM3; or c) a custom black and white Sketch of the Day style illustration. Congratulations to AJW!
I'll have Round 2 matches up later today; I wanted the winners to have a few hours at least to revel in their victory.
Congrats ajw for the consolation round win, as well as everyone else that lived to fight another day.
Gongradulations to everyone who made it through this round. The competition was stiff.
_ _ _
Well this competition has only been going for two weeks and both of my characters have attempted to kill themselves / alter ego’s / other planar selves . . . I don’t know the proper term for this suicidal tendancy but either way, my story is proving to be a little morbin so far.
Well at least only the Sherriff actually managed to succeed in killing his . . .
Oh and congrats to ajw as well.
Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the not-so-lucky
Good entries all round I thought, looking forward to seeing the Little Johns
Thanks jeff and all the voters and congratulations to all of the guys going to round 2 little john!
hey jeff do i request the subject of the black and white sketch?
ajw, yes, it can be whatever you like (within reason — I ain’t doing a super-hero recreation of the Sistene Chapel).
It is a pity ((I could pass, but the opponent was very strong (
It would appear there was a little ‘no story backlash’: the Atomic Punk’s prediction came true: the entries without a story got left behind (Cliff’s, Rozenstal’s, GeneH’s). I was especially surprised with Rozenstal vs. The Imp; I not surprised that The Imp won, just by how much The Imp won by. Also, The Atomic Punk almost won with mostly story and little character to look at!
@Rozental: judging by your first three entries (including your Little John), you would appear to have one of the best collections out there.
@VonMalcolm: As you will also see by my Little John, my design for Frére Tuck was a visual aid to the story. I’m liking the backstories. They really add to the characters.
@ajw: Your Friar Tuck is an example of story and character. I’m going to be a wee harsh, but the design doesn’t fit the “Robin Hood in Space” theme.
Without the backstory, he’s definitely a traditional character and an overall great design. With his backstory, he’s space-bound. Congrats on the win.
I’m surprised that I won, honestly. I think Tuck was the weakest of my designs, and I think Rozenstal nailed it better.
