Re: October 06 Contest Votes

This was harder than I thought it would be - judging ugly, scary and ugly/scary.

1. Lorraine - a zombie bin laden
2. Cazubi - most attractive vampire (very effective bg)
3. Dvaught - least attractive (a definite skin crawler)
4. Lonk - great 'B' horror flic look
5. Viira - really like the colours and the naugahyde skin texture.

1. Lorraine - The most zombish of the lot. I can almost smell the decay. Thoroughly appropriate background. The light blur under her chin is perplexing, though.

2. LonK - The subject is more vampire/werewolf than zombie, but the composition is so striking!

3. Flora - Beautifully composited, and the rendering on her face is great. Again more vampire than zombie.

4. Cazubi - Coloring (or lack thereof?) is very effective. Extracted figure needs a little blur to make it less cutout-looking. More vampire than zombie.

5. Cassidy - I like the worms, but the 'uneaten' skin is a mite pristine. Good color, though

All in all, this was a great collection of ghoulish art. Everyone's entry was top notch.
