The Calm Before... by MightyDangLo The Calm Before... by MightyDangLo
I wanted to do something like "March Of The Penguins", but different and without penguins. This one was made to fit between the first one and the last one I did for this. If I was telling a story, this would be the arc of it.

It's been a blast being part of such a great collection of ideas. Best of luck to everyone in this.

This is a great peice. Truly amazing work. It's kind of wierd though how part II has ten times as many hits as Part I ??? (well at least for now anyway) Personally between the two, I think this one has a better composition.
Looking forward to seeing mor of your stuff

Okay, now I know I faved and commented on this. I could swear I did. I saw it and thought it was the most bad ass entry I'd ever seen. Sonuvabitch. I hate it when that happens. Anyway, this vic just owns all. It's just got the attitude. I dunno if it's very Megadeth, got more an Iron Maiden/ Children of Bodom feel with the gothic fantasy flavor. But it still kicks more ass than a six pack of Chuck Norris.

That is astounding! I love the textures, the perspective and the idea.. however, I must admit I don't see much "march of the penguins" in this. ;P
Pure Awesome.

Marvelous work, even though it's for the contests, I see no reason why this couldn't be associated with something amazingly fantasy or sci-fi related...
This brings back so many memories for the arch-heroes and the arch-villans and all of my favorite stories, and ever some that i made up for myself. the compostiion of it all is very well done too, the zoomed in face gives it a less evil quality and a more anti-hero sort of thing, like spawn or blade.

awesome work, total fave, you have some serious talent.

TorGott Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2006
Thats simply the most professional and astonishing work I have found at this contest. Really brilliant, everything seems to be perfect, the colors, the composition, the pose, the detail ... really, really great.

The only bad thing is the design idee. Don't get me wrong, I really like your design, but it looks like fantasy ... and that doesn't siut megadeth well. But hey, I'm not the one in the Jury ... I wish you great luck with your image, because you really deserve a high rank at this contest!

Awesome work!
