ROUND ONE VOTING - SPOTLIGHT BRAWN

Postby Richter » Tue Jan 22, 2008 11:00 pm

COVER ASSIGNMENT:

The cover you are to prepare is for the faux comic Spotlight: Brawn. Brawn 's robot form is to be the main focus of the cover, with his alt mode as an optional inclusion. Also, Highbrow and Octopunch, in either or both modes, must feature on the cover. The setting for the cover is a jungle region on Earth.

RULES:

-Pictures must allow room for all title mastheads and logos which appear on IDW's comics

-Character designs must general fit G1/IDW traditions. If you're assigned a character that exists in several continuities, default to G1/IDW. War Within-style design alterations are acceptable as well. Just ensure the characters are blatantly recognizable

-Finished pictures are to be inked line-art and “ready for color.”

VOTING GUIDELINES:

- Does the cover meet assignment requirements?

- Is the appropriate focus given to the spotlight character?

- Does the cover make you interested in buying the book to find out what happens inside?

- Is the cover eye-catching?

Brawn is a personal favorite of mine.

There are some very nice entries in this group to be sure.

In the end, I had to go with Sami Kivela's piece. Great composition and excellent inking skills on display. The piece conveys action and danger, which is very enticing when viewed on the comic shop shelf. This actually reminds me of a cover from a more classic comic era.

Very nice.

Normally I'm one for details and all, but by far the most original use of the characters was by Jason Rice. Kudos. :)

hmm, seems like Octopunch is more of a focus in most of these......

I don't see why everyone's voting for Dave Ayling. his Brawn is too skinny, doesn't capture the character at all.

Yeah, Jason's cover design is excellent, and if I wasn't such a selfish person I might well have voted for it instead of my own :oops:

Although his Brawn looks a bit odd, the fact remains that #302 DAVID C. AYLING's cover is the superior design and it actually focus's on BRAWN rather than the other characters (as it should) also i was hoping to see the 1 autobot's robot mode and yet nobody even attempted to try to draw it as if afraid or something.

I really dig the Jason Rice one. I was thinking along similar lines with the dark murky jungle and Octopunch rising up on them. Nicely done Jason.

although it's a close call, i think that jason rice's cover
strikes the best balance in its use of contrast,
composition and striking, if not overly, "cartoony" style.
now with more giant robots:

Well, in the end I voted for Jason Rice's piece. These are really interesting because nearly everyone did the 'Ocotopunch is a monster stalking Brawn' idea.

Too bad there's no toy-based Brawn images. Would have loved to see his claws.

Ended up going with Jason Rice's cover... His take is different, and while different isn't always better, this one was different for me a good way. It got my attention, and since I'm a freak about clean, easy to read inks, I appreciated the light and dark contrast play immediately. The mood the blacks and whites set up is also great (very eerie!), and I feel like there's enough balance that the focus is at least divided pretty evenly between Brawn and Octopunch. Good cover for what could be a story about one mech versus another in really, really bad territory; which one gets out alive!?

Sami Kivela got the nod from me for an eyecatching cover. Well done to everyone who entered though. A lot of good work and nice to see a few different styles.
