    It's interesting that the design that is most similar to the original design is the one getting the most votes so far. I guess it truly is a classic design and I love how Bootleg captured it.

    Oh... this is super tough. Gatcha greys' is such a cool concept, love the shadows of the collosus style green tower... Jon wes' is probably my favourite idea. Love the visual image of these castles ripped from ground by the roots. 2bads' is a beautiful image... very evocative of the box art (plus it's the one which makes me realize how mine would have gone. I would have made the central tower very hi-tech, made the lion look a little like the Thundercats lair, keeping the magic for the flanking towers). Inkf301 has an ace concept, love the dormant Titan theme. Bootlegs' is gorgeous as always.

    Can't vote yet... must think.

    I gave Gatcha my vote, he really managed to distill the 3 Towers into humanoid form . I also rather like how effective the very simple changes that Bootleg did to the original are.

    2-bad: Ah, I musta' missed that one... ^^

    I've sorted it, but I really do think it's easier to make out what your design actually looks like in the one visible now.

    Telkan and 2-bad did a terrific job but this round is definitely win by Bootleg!
    Great job pal, you are always one of the best! Good job to everyone, my rendition of the three towers is in Galaxy Warrior hands, he asked me not to show anyone, hope he will post it sooner or later.

    Awesome!

    I had to go with bootleg's as well. I could just see miles of tram skytrack connecting Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, and Central Tower as the Eternia group. I never cared for the idea of the two sub-towers being affiliated with existing structures instead of just connecting the three.

    I think I see a pretty clear trend in the polls here... I'll give it a day or two, but then I'm going to announce the clear and obvious winner.

    Well, I think it's pretty safe to announce the winner now! Still in the lead with more than twice the votes (and since I forgot to add a closing date to the poll...)

    CONGRATULATIONS BOOTLEG!!! XD

    I hope you, and everybody else, will join us for our next round, Filmation Modulok.

    hey folks, somebody posted this on my deviant art page posting of the central tower:

    I do not feel this should have won the contest. The rules were to redesign the 3 towers. THREE. It is unfair to the other contestants who obeyed the rules. I like your design, don't get me wrong. But it didn't follow the guidelines. And then for the final round to be renamed as the Ultimate Battleground instead of the Three Towers shows that it was changed to allow your submission.


    presumably this is not a registered member of the 'org, or they would have posted here. but because this was brought to my attention, and i myself questioned the eligibility of my entry, i just want everyone to know that i'm completely willing to have my entry disqualified--i do these strictly for fun, and i definitely wouldn't want anyone to feel like this was unfair.

    just to clarify--i didn't have enough time to complete all 3 towers, and since i was the one who asked Predabot to extend the deadline, i thought it would be pretty lame if i didn't enter something, even if it wasn't eligible for voting.

    regardless of what people decide, there will be no hard feelings (but next time someone thinks something is unfair, please bring it up before the voting!)

    thanks everyone!

    Didn't you mention something in the submission thread (or somewhere) about the rail/tram system originally connecting your Central Tower to Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain?

    To me that effectively re-imagines them as the other two towers (an idea I really like, by the way), and to draw them just to draw them would seem (to me) like sort of a waste of time.

    Of course, since you mentioned you're working on the other two towers, that might not be what you were going for, but that's what I'd gotten out of it.
