_______________________________________________________________________

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/856855/1

This contest received an impressively high amount of quality entries even if we got only 3 pages of submissions.
I'm really proud of you guys <3 So sorry not everyone can win after doing such a great job. Everyone should go in the thread and check out all the entries at their full size to appreciate the nice level of details.
And while you're at it, go read the discussion thread to see all the time some people have put into their work: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/856857

FINAL CONTENDERS:






TOP 10 COUNTDOWN!
woopwoopwoopwoop

10th place
== DooDooMeat http://doodoomeat.newgrounds.com/


One of the first submissions. Really impressed me and gave me hope. Awesome badass pose that should have spawned at least one chessy cavewoman movie starring Brigitte Nielsen in the 80s.

==============================================================

9th place == Murder-Inc http://murder-inc.newgrounds.com/


Awesome detail and render on the character, unfortunately it sorta lacks a background. Could have used a shadow or something, but the figure is stunning.


==============================================================

8th place == Sakerfalcon http://sakerfalcon.newgrounds.com/


 Well no one's going to accuse this one of not having enough details in the background. Foreshortening is a little off, but the great paint job on the accessories  makes up for it. Also, that is one long hand gun.

==============================================================

7th place == CosmicDeath http://cosmicdeath.newgrounds.com/


Pretty impressive paint job on that model, though the 'fantasy' element was definately lacking at first. Nice save with the wings, but it still feels a little forced. Still a damn good piece with great colors in the background..

==============================================================

6th place == DANNYESLOCO  http://dannyesloco.newgrounds.com/


OK that background figure is way cartoony and goofy, but check that butt out! Holy smokes. Only thing I would say is that the rendering is too blurry on the main figure but the pose is dynamite. It was  really close between this one and number 5... Sadly had to pick one :/

TOP 5

5th place == Renaenae http://renaenae.newgrounds.com/
$$$-PRIZE: $25 + Shirt + Stickers + 1 random 'Heavy Metal' magazine



Little oriental twist here. I love the cloth, it looks like it was made with pencils or something. A bit cartoony but pretty well rendered with a nice touch on  with the reflection on the floor. 

==============================================================
4th place ==  Jagondudo  http://jagondudo.newgrounds.com/
  $$$-PRIZE: $50 + Shirt + Stickers + 1 random 'Heavy Metal' magazine



Best composition and overall mood. Though it's not as expertly rendered as some of the other entries, it has a great retro feel and a chick with.. like giant cobra arms? Also love the little  spaceships flying around and the little spark details really  complement the painted/blurrier look of the woman. It's like Sky Captain and the Attack on Space Castle Cobra-Woman

==============================================================
3rd place == Someonegood  http://someonegood.newgrounds.com/
  $$$-PRIZE: $75 + Shirt + Stickers + 1 random 'Heavy Metal' magazine 



Sort of a little Manga thing going on here. Perfect rendering on that chick in the foreground even though I'm not sure if the rendering on the feathers is that high-grade.... wait, what the hell am I talking about? Who cares about feathers, look at that chick. Damn the wind for making stray pieces of cloth ondulate just in the right way.
Also N/A in Canada? What's up with that, bro? :(

==============================================================
2nd place ==  Transforwhores http://transforwhores.newgrounds.com/
  $$$-PRIZE: $100 + Shirt + Stickers + 2 random 'Heavy Metal' magazines



Look at that awesome color job! It's somehow cartoony and yet a painting.
Great work on the plump face, managed to get the look down perfectly while
not shying away from the challenge of drawing a hot chick's face. The
background is low-key but just the right color, it's like we're back in Bitey's forest but now there's actually something interesting going on. 

==============================================================
1st place ==  Kassar  http://kassar.newgrounds.com/
  $$$-PRIZE: $200 + Shirt + Stickers + 5 'Heavy Metal' magazines from the 80s


This is my favourite one. The whole design of the cover is perfect and there's no way you'd find this kind of image anywhere but on a Heavy Metal magazine cover. I don't know how well all that heavy glow would print on actual paper and I don't give a shit because my eyes are getting raped and I love it.  The top half reminds me of Star Wars and the bottom reminds me of what should have been in Star Wars.

AND IN CLOSING, I WOULD LIKE TO ADD:
