Ok all, here is the deal. I finally am living with my collection again and it has sparked my interest in the hobby again. I'd like to start updating my site again and working on lost projects that never got finished. Which brings me to this competition.

As you can see in the picture, I like the claw. I am looking for pictures for my claw army to update my site with. here are the specs for this challenge: Its my "Claw Army" picture, meaning, I want at least Five Claws in the picture, prefferably more.

Anything else is pretty much free game, any color, any additions, any style, any claw. I am hoping for maximum creativity, and maximum participation, cause I am greedy and want more pictures :) All pictures submitted will be posted on my site with proper recognition for your work.

To spark up participation, I am offering the following rewards:
1. 1st place by voters choice will recieve $25
2. 2nd place by voters choice will recieve $15 Akia store credit
3. My personal favorite will recieve $15

Multiple entries encouraged, cause like I said, im greedy.

My personal favorite may win the voters award as well, so if it is my favorite and the voters, you will recieve $40. To make it a little more unbiased, I will not participate in the voting process. I will just choose my favorite.

I know there have been muscle competitions in the past, so I apologize for non muscle collectors, but since I am forking out the rewards, you have to deal with it hahhahaha. I am excited to see what the awesome artists on this board can produce.

Wow, the "Just Draw Hands" competition. It's every artist's dream, topped only by "Draw Some Feet". :)

Should be a nice challenge though, i'm definitely looking forward to seeing what everyone throws down for this one.

Can we get a close up pic of the claw? That way they guys who don't know what he looks like can draw him.

Is this a contest where you get the winner's entry sent to you, Doc? I'm thinking of doing watercolor this time, but I'm not too keen about sending watercolor paintings through the mail, so I might change my media if it has to be mailed.

Its mainly for my website, however, I would love the hard copy, but that wasnt going to be a requirement. Its up to you guys. As long as it looks good on screen, anything wanting to be mailed to me though I would pay for the postage that sounds cool and to be honest I hadnt really thought about it.

You can draw five claws, I was just showing off my collection. They dont have to be of any of my pieces, just claws. Get creative.

this is just a preliminary drawing, i think. i drew it on the back of a paper from work (the yellow is highlighter, not mustard), i liked the design and will probably redraw it for the final. i just wanted to get it out there, just in case i dont redraw it. :p

::i love transformers and the first thing i thought of is a combiner, devastator of course, so i imagine all these claws green... plus a few purple ones in appropriate areas. :crazy: ::

I agree.That's the best potential entry I've seen in any of these contests. If it's completed beyond sketch stage, it's going to be near impossible to beat.

I'm not into sloppy sketches.
There's too much going on. It looks frantic. Almost on the vurge of ridiculousness.
And Nilla' does'nt clean up his work,or color them in,so I don't see it being improved.

What actually amazes me about Eric's work is that he doesn't need to go through a cleanup phase. His pencil work is phenomenal, just incredibly tight. It never even looks like he uses an eraser. :mcmadd: I've inked stuff for a lot of professional comic book artists that isn't anywhere NEAR that clean in pencil stage. Hell, if i posted my pencils before coloring and inking i'd be laughed right out of these contests. :)

I'm not sure what you mean by "frantic", but everything about that claw monster is under control and where it needs to be.

To each his own though, i guess.
