Nice pic. I like it. Dont worry about the glowing part, I wouldnt have noticed anything had you not brought attention to them. My one complaint is that the black left hand is hard to see with the black backdrop, but that isnt a big deal. Good work.
@Hectichermit
..Good job :P
dont have much else to say.
@gaboloth
Thats good too! although, this way it does look like he has an unusually large chest. Maybe moving the arm up a bit could help...?

Nice work overall guys! Im gonna go back to my exams now. Dont expect anything from me. Its funny how anytime I say i might do something, crazy stuff happens that makes me not....
:(

It'd be nice if we had a few more entries by the close, which is, as you know, the end of Saturday.

There have been lots of times though that there were very few posts. Actually the most I think was around 6 or something.

I'd post but right now I'm too lazy to go figure out what the rules are. I have a sketch of my character posed as Phoenix Wright and yelling "Objection!" although I'm saving it for when someone posts something in a thread that is completely wrong or irrelevant.

Just for you, then, Strop.

^Placeholder until I bother scanning it.

You seem to be harder on yourself than other people Cen

Not my fault no one else wants to uphold such gentlemanly practices, is it.

Anyway, isn't this an art thread? More art people! Or talk through art or something.

The irony of that post, in between two pictures, after several pages of art discussion. And the post includes no art nor art discussion.

I'd post but right now I'm too lazy to go figure out what the rules are.

They pretty much come down to "draw something that fits the theme, for the theme, in time of the theme."

It would be really funny if you had tried to submit that to this round of the competition, because it would have been completely irrelevant to the theme at hand haha.

This said, I'd like to remind people of the aim of the contest (at least as I saw it): like in Iron Chef, the winner is the person who best articulates the theme, which means that it's one thing to draw a subject, but the secret to success lies in the portrayal. You'll see in my commentary that I will focus mainly on whether/how much your submission evokes a sense of greatness or "greatest".

Okay cool, carry on then!

Well, I admit that I had no idea what to draw this round. I tried to think about something, but I wasn't quite successful. So I drew this: me trying to figure out the meaning of the words "AG's greatest". Does this fit the theme?

Okay I referenced these items:
- This video for Legolas
- This for Legolas also
- This I sort of traced for Strop's head
- This in game elephant I also basically traced for the elephant
- This image of Gollum

Here is the image:

What better way to convey the greatest at AG other than a nod to the original site (which is the cause for such greatness). A farewell to a great employee with some great games (and the very recognizable elephant). And of course I think Strop is a real presence on the forums and they wouldn't be as great without him (and I merged him with Gollum).

Okay, so I'm disappointed with it, but here it is as a comic, I guess. it would be longer and in one image, but it doesn't fit in the forum and the above is too cramped. So here it is:
