    Vote for the best Shokoti redesign. 1

    Happy halloween everybody!! =)

    Well, this challenge had a just amazing turnout, and as such, I have split the polls to make room for everybody.
    You're allowed to vote in both polls, and should there not be a clear winner from both polls, I will post a third
    final poll to decide the winner.

    Also, a special thanks goes out to Baena for rousing up excitement and calling out his fellow artists to join in the fun.
    I honestly don't think we would have had the turnout we had without you, Mr Baertsch.

    Now... vote for your favourite!! :-D

    Also, since the poll for the next challenge was so close, it will indeed be Castaspella next, but I'm going to have to put
    down my ironed fist of tyranny once more and pick the one after that to be... Lightspinner. ^^

    I know I'll be the only one, so I had to vote for my own. They are all great, though... I especially like Gbagoks' and Baenas', everyone did a great job with their entries, though...

    Ever since I saw Baena's entry, it has never left my waking mind. Its really odd. Something about it.

    Theres my choice. It would make a nice print as well.

    Nightwing & Baena take the prize for this one in my opnion.

    Nightwing's version has a very Japanese retro-feel which I enjoy very much, & Nate is bringing the heat by some terrific lighting for his return to the Masters of the Universe art realm! Nice work everyone!

    As I have said before (in the other Shokoti thread), it seems that people are just voting based solely on the strength of the artist, rather than the thought behind the concept of a REdesign.

    While Baena is definately the most skilled, I voted for 2-Bad who went above and beyond merely duplicating an existing design with a more talented hand.

    Next on my list was Nightwing, who's rendition was absolutely amazing! Infact if I had my time back, I probably would have chosen Nightwing's very impressive piece. Meh, lets just call it a draw.

    Wow everyone has cool designs. My vote went for nightwings design as the best though. gBagok was a close second for me and then Baena's awesome rendition.

    Hard to chose in this one... I finally went with gBagok tho, with Munkeyboy's design as a close second. Just love that asian style you gave her Munkey!

    The eyes and facial expression in gBagok's version really did it for me tho.

    Yup, them links sure are fixed now.

    Also, currently the votes have 31 votes for Baena, and 35 votes for BBM in the other thread. I'm going to hold and see how things develop until tomorrow, if we need a third poll, or if one of them is going to be a clear supreme winner.

    I figure you've got to run a third poll to be fair to all.

    I'd say take the top two to three from each poll, and run the third poll with the top designs.

    Because let's say I vote for option C in the first poll and option E in the second poll.

    Then option A wins the first poll and option D wins in the second. Neither of which did I vote for...

    I would want to vote for either A or D then in the third poll to really see which one design wins all.

    That make sense?

    Actually, I am a bit confused... ^^ But I think you mean that we have a final poll with 2 of the top from each, making a total of 4, yes? And then we see who reigns supreme.

    It's kind of obvious wich two are getting the majority of the votes in the polls tho dude, don't you think?

    Well, once we've managed to pin exactly who is the winner of this round. ( perhaps within 2 days, in other words.)

    Y'know, I might as well post that third poll right now, it seems to be the only way to settle it, and it shouldn't take long to see the winner.

    Third poll coming up guys!

    EDIT: Come on over and vote for in the final decisive vote! This one's the big one..

    what an insane round of entries!

    nightwing: i like the way you designed armor pieces, particularly how the shoulder pads echo the headdress. the hairstyle gives her a very regal quality as well.
    gBagok: your version looks much more like a warrior than the original, while maintaing the sex appeal. i love the tattered cape and the windblown hair.
    Granbeetle: oh wow--this one is not only a great redesign, but a great scene as well! you've done a great job setting the mood, and the rendering of the smoke is beautiful. i really like the fact that it's all color and no lines.
    super-munkyboy: another killer chibi! as usual, your elaborate armor and costume details are fantastic (i love the floating blades on her polearm and her floating spellbook). your color choices here are really crisp--great work!
    2-bad: once again, i am amazed by your excellent sense of design and your amazing attention to detail. the horned shoulder pad, the complex headdress and boots, and the creepy triple-tongue-whip-weapon, all work together for a really unique vision. awesome!
    oIcemano: she's got a very menacing look to her--i love the downward angle we're seeing her from. i'd really love to see you continue this one with an application of your expert colors.
    Yaoi HuntressE: i'm digging the very feminine take on the character, emphasized by her long gown and billowing sleeves. the wicked curves and angles of her polearm are a nice contrast to her.
    Glass Shrimp: you need to post around here more often dude! i see your version as something shokoti would transform into for battle. i prefer the blue and purple version, but i like the glowing spots on both.

    as others have mentioned, it was an excruciating choice, but my vote for this half went to:

    Baena: i was blown away the instant i saw this. the re-design itself is simple, yet elegant and effective. the lighting is amazing, as always.

    Thanks. I was inspired by the ladies of Chaos Comics (especally Purgetory and Lady Death) when drawing her.
