    They're all quite nice, and I'm taken with Wyverii's, but I feel Cartoons!'s art is superior. I'm in love with the Syclant picture

    Cartoons! is who I voted for. I don't like his Pyroak though.

    Gah, shouldn't have voted so soon. I'd like my vote changed to Wyverii, because I want her in that second place Darkie mentioned. It's pretty obvious who's getting first. (:

    ( Thanks in advance )

    Cartoons!, because nothing else compares ;_;

    Edit: I'm with Wyverii on what she's saying about pixel art, her
    stuff is great, but I don't think it's really what we're going for...

    Though I'm such a fanboy I'd probably vote cartoons no-matter what his art was for ;_;

    I vote Cartoons!.

    They're all amazing - I saved Wyverii's pixels to my computer, I loved them so - but pixel art isn't really the best for the main page (make it all smooth, and such) and the other artist's art is a bit rough for a main page.

    Perhaps if you wanted to get an idea of who goes in second and third place Darkie you should have just announced Cartoons! as the winner and made this a two way poll between me and Cyzir. It was rather obvious that Cartoons! digital style was the best and most popular for the website. Then again the general uses for both Cyzirs and my own styles are so different it's practically a moot point regardless.

    Hmm, there's too many extra colours in my work, I need to up the saturation as well. I'll update the artwork once the contest is over.

    I voted for Cartoons!, but it was amazingly hard to decide because I could see any of them working on the front page of the website. But his visual style won me over.

    I'm glad Darkie is choosing to include more than just one person's art on the site. Both Wyverii's and CyzirVisheen's work are incredible, and, I think, have greater merit for not being run-of-the-mill cgi art.

    I've taken the opportunity to redraw Fidgit in order to match Doug's sprite better (shorter arms, smaller wristbands), and also to fit within my own 398x398 convention. I hope people find it okay.

    No offense, but its head looks...squished.

    Edit:
    Fidgit: Control, this is Fidgit 1, ready for take off.
    Control: Roger Fidgit 1, you are clear for take off.

    God, I love you.

    And I mean that in the most manly, don't-take-this-wrong, it's-cool-dude, but-seriously-I-love-you... way possible.

    That Fidgit is wonderful.

    Brilliant... I'm really looking forward to how these pages are going to look on the site. Are there any plans to set up some kind of gallery to show artwork that was not chosen? Not just for these four, but basically all the past art deemed as "good".

    I'm sorry, but I have to agree with Tennis, the head looks squished ;_;

    It also looks a bit cross eyed, I still love it, but it could be better ;_;

    I guess it'll be up to darkie if he wants to use that Fidgit or not, or someone's else's rendition if we're trying to keep consistency in mind. Either way, if people don't like the head, I could always fix it up when I get back in a few days from wherever it is I am going.
