Nice work one of if not the top ones this time. I really like your color choices the green with the red to offset it and also how you put the cool side of mojo against the warm side of the others it really helps separate the whole thing. Also really nice rendering on The BG nice lighting and use of texture without overdoing it. My only critique would be it would be cool if you could of found a way to separate mojo a little more maybe make it look like he was actually in a screen, right now it kind of looks like he is poking his head out of a hole right next to them. Overall really top notch color work good luck.

Very good luck, another battle for the ages. Hard to decide between the two! Mojo's pink is a bit distracting, but other than that, awesomeness!

ah dude, many thanks - yeah, the pink was meant to be a 'fill for now' and I just never got round to fixing it up the way I envisioned it, so yeah.

Thank you for the compliment and congrats on your win :D

This was a grind for sure! After finishing my piece, I finally had a look at your version and I just slap my head :P I love the background work here. There so a lot of room for interruption that could lead to some very bad results. You really hit the mark here. Well it safe to say you brought it and I hope the judges see the value in our battle (that is if my piece is worth the look lol).

Your colors are always beautiful. :D I love the way the textures were used for the background and I really like how the hair was done too. I also like how soft her outfit looks.

For Iron man, there's a tip that's not well known for drawing metal, the highlight is always right next to the darkest of shadows, a good way to notice this is to look up "metal pipes" on google images. Since a pipe is a basic shape, it'll be easier to spot the highlights and shadows. Also by drawing the darkest of shadow next to the brightest highlight, its a big contrast, it makes the highlights stand out more without having to go pure white.

I can't really offer any other critique about this because it's just that good. :D

ah, the student teaches the master! XD sorry, i could not resist saying that! XD

thank you very much for your kind words :D

and yes, while I do know that trick, it's the one that's the lowest on my list of 'tricks and things to remember to make awesomeness', it's good to be reminded from time to time.
This was actually the piece I feared the most this year, the linework is immeasurable and I kept thinking 'if we have to colour this, i hope the flatter puts in little numbers to make it a bit easier' XD

No, dude, that crit was great, i really do appreciate it, thank you :D

One of my favorite quotes. "A great teacher is someone who can learn from his students, who can learn with them, and learns for them."- Robert John Meehan
._. I'm sorry too, i couldn't resist either.

I agree with you, the lines were so detailed and the flatter was really good which helped tremendously.
Do you mind if I ask a whole bunch of questions about your art? *-*
Questions like how long does it take to complete a piece like this?
How can I get a bucket full of awesomeness like yours? *_*
