    Both paintings are flavorful and look like they belong on the card they're supposed to represent. Galspanic's painting looks like it could have been the original artwork for City of Shadows. Definitely looks like some of the artwork from that period. The Emortal's work has a modern look that could have appeared in the RTR block. Nice work to both artists. This is a difficult choice.

    Galspanic's. just because i have a similar playmat and have always liked buildings. i was expecting something more intense for double negative. still, both arts are all amazing.

    Yeah, Magic2014 really is underwhelming ... just like Dragon's Maze, Gatecrash, Return to Ravnica, Avacyn Restores, Dark Ascension, Innistrad, New Phyrexia, Mirrodin Besieged, Scars of Mirrodin and all sets before those. Rolleyes
    Get over it, it's just a children's card game.


    Thanks Argentleman;)

    Both pieces are outstanding. Sincerely, I can't decide wich one to vote for. Slant

    You both deserve the cup! The best of lucks for this poll.

    I wish I could've finished a piece for this, particularly considering I came up with the contest idea. I had three pieces in mind, but computer problems kept me from being able to enter this time around. I voted for Galspanic's as it looked the best to me. Neither of them really look refined to the point where they belong on a card, but I feel like Galspanic's work showed a higher level of experience.

    It's of one of those I really can't decide, they are both really nice executions, so I voted for the Emortal just because I personally like drawing characters more than buildings-scenery.Awesome job for both:)!

    Gotta say, Gals piece is very cool and fitting for the City of Shadows, but I agree with Spade. Hands and faces get my vote.

    Alright, apparently I did not include an automatic deadline in this polls, so I will close this manually right now: Round is closed. Vote count: Galspanic 5, The Emortal 7.

    Congrats to The Emortal for winning the cup this month, well done Smile

    Announcement will be up soon.
