Lets get in here first (maybe!)

1st:  Jon.  In a strong field this still stands out - exquisite recreation of Bellardinelli Warp spasm, and you cant have a fantasy themed comp and leave out Massimo!

2nd:  Iamthe system: Love the Inquisitor Dredd design and Starlord style 70s painted cover vibe

3rd:  Superseurfer:  Sneaking in at the last minute with a fun concept... my brain is scratching about at this idea of Ukko casting himself as the hero.... where is that from? 


Dont normally do HMs, but StuartCatley and Paul Moore deserve a mention for the slickness (not the right word!) of their images

Grud on a greenie, there's some awesome work there. I can honestly say I love all of the entries!

But, vote I must....

1: Jon. Amazing work. This should definitely be a star scan or poster in the prog. ( a bit like when Tharg printed Jake Lynches Dredd pic...!)

2: IamtheSystem. Beautifully done. Very clever colouring, too. Superb!

3: Stuartcatley. The toughest one to choose, but I'm blown away by this design. This needs to be a thing!

HMs. Everyone else.  ;)

Well played, all. And a virtual pint to CFM!

Such an amazing month for incredible artwork - every submission here is worthy of high praise!

1st) Jon: Warp Spasm
For a while it was a really tough call between the black and white version and IAMTHESYSTEM's entry, but when the colour version was submitted, that pretty much clinched it. Love the colouring, the use of light and dark, and the overall artwork itself - fantastic!

2nd) IAMTHESYSTEM: 2000 BC
Came VERY close to being the winner for me - brilliant bit of artwork which for me is quite evocative of some of the painted Prog covers of the 90s.

3rd) Albion: The Ferocious Axe Of Slaine
I've chosen this one as I think it's Albion's best artwork yet - I just love the drawing of Slaine in mid flight, bearing down on Nemesis... what a battle that would be! Great work, Albion!

HMs:
stuartcatley: Knight Dredd
Nic Freeman: Kiss My Axe
allistermac:  Slaine
amines2058: Mongrol The Ogre
Leigh S: Feg & Medb

 Great topic suggestions for the comp always yield fabulous entries, as proven again with this months feast for the eyes. As a rule I would be drawn to the black & white art, but this time around the boys with the crayons have really knocked the artistic ball out of the playground.

1. Jon - Warp Spasm. A superb dramatic rendering of Slaine's 'warp out' that would make a dam fine wrap-around cover for the Prog.

2. IAMTHESYSTEM - 2000BC. Another wonderful piece, I really like the 'Pulp' feel given by composition and palette used.

3. Steven Denton2 - Renegade Trooper. A nice clean illustration, packed with detail. Reminiscent of Chris Western in rendering and colour.

HM. stuartcatley - Knight Dredd. A great image of Dredd with a fine rethink of his armour for a bygone age.

Again, a very high standard all round, a salute to all those who took part... and a tip of the hat to the master of the vote CFM.

All the best. Stew. :D

1 Jon - Warp Spasm: Insanely good.
2 IAMTHESYSTEM - 2000 BC: Great the character design and painterly style. We don't see enough from IATS.
3 stuartcatley - Knight Dredd: Cool character design. Really like the colouring.

HMs
Nic Freeman - Kiss My Axe: Good idea. Nicely put together.
Steven Denton2 - Renegade Templar: Cool drawing.
Albion2 - The Ferocious Axe of Slaine: I do like these kinds of 'what if' cover designs.

... my brain is scratching about at this idea of Ukko casting himself as the hero.... where is that from?
I thought it came from my bonce. When I came to start drawing I looked online for Ukko reference and saw the panel TS kindly posted, so maybe it lodged somewhere deep in my memory banks. Would've loved to have worked it up further and looked into different inking styles such as Ernie Chan/Chua. And apologies to Albion. I was going to abandon the text when I saw his entry but I stuck to my first (and only) idea.

Surely, you not a old friend I know outside of this forum pretending to be practically a stranger & why the use of yellow?

Wha'? This thread is for voting, not chat but just to answer: image Google 'Savage Sword of Conan' and the second image to come up has a yellow and red masthead, hence me using that colour scheme.

Woah!  :o

1st - Jon: Warp Spasm.
Words fail me. Just a stunning piece of artwork.

2nd - Paul Moore: Slaine.
Adore the brush work and the style - would work a treat in the prog.

3rd - Iamthesystem: 2000BC.
A glorious painting, with no more than 3 extra ideas included! Brilliant!

HM - Nic Freeman: Kiss my axe.
Great image, great pun.
