That last Showdown was close. Thanks to all the participants, both artists and voters.

 
 

This one is a suggestion by a Hierarchy on the Vine and I added a little twist. Since Modok might be a little tough I added some extra time. Looking forward to everyone's art...                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Let the showcase competition begin....          Deadline May 31

@Blankspot: 
 
 This is both characters interacting with each other as in one panel together. 
 
Combination of the two would be creating a separate entity altogether, which is the "Amalgam" contest here on the vine.
 
Maybe just for fun at another time it would be funny to see what their baby would look like but not this time.  : P
 
This is more like Beauty and the Beast, Marvel villain style!

My preference is in clarity and detail, so my vote is for the first one. 
 
You kicked ass in creativity and delivering your piece way in advance of the deadline (You must have been very inspired on this one.) Hehehe!
 
 Visually provocative in layout and form. Well done Bud!!

@sora_thekey: hahaha that's what my fiance said, she told me that this picture diminishes Mystique's power as a character and strong female figure and that i should never draw her again. lol.
 
well that's not what I was intending to do here, but it provokes thought, and that's what good art should do, so yeah I'm pretty pleased with this one.

@Caligula:  I actually like that... One of the main reasons I loved the Dark X-Men mini series' ending was because it showed how much of a broken and weak character Mystique can be even though mostly she is shown to handle everything with no problem at all!

Dr Phil here....   You know, I was thinking earlier that there might be some unresolved issues between you and your better half to be and in some way you are acting it out by drawing your perception of you as Modok and your Fiancee as Mystique. That's it man, let it out!!! let those pent up feelings release through your art!!

Against you? Not at all. In fact we want you to participate. I have fun looking at your version and creativity of the characters involved. You produced so much art in such a short time, we don't care if we burn you out, we want MORE!!!!  : ) Your art is great!
 
Oh, and nooooooo, I do not kick butt in these contests. I have noticed I have squeaked by on some. From what I can tell everyone voting has a preference and chooses different artists, that's what makes all of this fun. 
 
 If I remember correctly, DID U GET MY EMAIL SIR????! : )

I love it! 
 
I'm not sure if it's fair to the rest of the guys including myself to compete against the computer and 3D to boot.  : )
 
It is great to see the characters in this mode but it wasn't actually drawn by your hands either on paper or tablet form.  (Not in the traditional sense that is)
 
This would change the rules for what is to be a traditional way of presenting comic-book art that we see and love. 
 
I think you definitely started something new, I would really like to see a different contest with 3d versions of our favorite comic book personalities. 
 
U should see if you can start one up and get others to participate. On this thread I  want to keep it as just pencil, ink and if colored with either crayolas or or anything else that will fill in the space on a the drawing that was created by an artists rendition with his own two hands. 
 
Kudos man, great stuff but I want your personal style and special twist you bring to the contest!   : D
 
I hope we still get to see your great renderings for this particular Showdown!!!

@DavidR: :(( Snif snif! I devoted a whole.... ummm... Half an hour for that! The whole 30 minutes! I'm never gonna post here again! (And Cue! Dramatic music plus walking alone into the highway while a storm is razing)..  
 
Hehehe! It's ok mate. I just wanted to show it anyway. I'll see what I can do at home... (in a traditionally manner... hmpf!) That is unless the tempting black box made by Sony (or the white box my Microsoft) drags me into the screen.. :D

 It's that happy trigger button syndrome from rapid fire from gaming too much, oh no! It's already started, it crossed over to your typing. You are typing too fast, you are showing the first signs of a gaming addict.
 
 Oh hell, I have to get you help!!! I'm on the phone with the airlines, I'll be there soon little buddy! I'm coming to help, hold on, hold on please! Stay away from the box, it's evil !....

To preface this picture, I didn't intend it to be a continuation of  ssejllenrad's nice 3D art, but after catching up with the posts it sure could be taken that way. At any rate, I would title this little piece "Love request denied". If anyone feels like inking or coloring this, please feel free, just be sure to send me a copy of the inked/colored version!

Hey Muffin, great pic very creative, made me laugh hard at the rejection balloons, glad you entered.
 
 I do not see similarities in the two other than the "Romantic theme", I did an early sketch the same way, even before he posted his. I am starting a new topic a little later and will post different sketches that I am working on, the romance themed version of mine will be in there. 
 
His was 3D and won't be entered in this voting. Unfortunately he hurt his hand in what he says is a sparring match and cannot draw for a while, so sadly we wont see ssejllenrad this time around. 
 
My personal belief is he has Carpal tunnel syndrome from playing with his Xbox... Hahaha. Hope he get's better soon.

If there's a particular medium that you want your showdown/contest to be in you need to declare that when you start the thread. Otherwise any medium should be available. We've had CG art win before and we've seen regular pencils & inks beat CG. Even if ssejllenrad is ok with it this time around, suppose someone put hours into a piece thats CGI or for that matter papier-mache or a noodle sculpture, its not really fair to disqualify them after they put the work in and submit it. While it might be easier to do CGI, people can take that into account when they vote.

  I fully understand that, If I ever win again, I will put a disclaimer in the future. If you read the earlier posts between him and myself, he asked when he posted if I thought it was ok. I mentioned that the 3D might cause a disadvantage to not just myself but the younger participants that do not have the means to create their art through Cg and I would prefer that we kept it as pencil ink and any form of coloring beyond that. He said it was no problem and would submit another one. Everything is on an earlier post.
 
As long as you have dealt with me I always ask you if I can do something, I am not one to be a root of discord within this website or between me another individual. I was not aware everything goes in regards to "medium". 
 
As I told  ssejllenrad, I think it's a great idea to post Character images in only 3D and maybe do that as a separate contest. I would really like to see that. 
 
So I hope that clarifies things and if you wish to post his in the voting that is understandable if you feel I should have mentioned it at the beginning of the thread.

I know you're definitely not someone that would cause a problem and I don't think there's a problem here, I think your involvement in the forum is awesome. My post was more about next time lets try to make things clear from the get-go.  My only concern is we've had a couple CG artists leave this forum with a bad taste in their mouth over this exact issue and I hope we can avoid people feeling excluded or confused about this in the future.
I'd love to see a CG contest too but I don't know if we've got enough users with access to that technology at the moment. 
ssejllenrad's rendition is definitely sweet.
 
Loving this showdown so far.

@DavidR:  Yeah, the romantic theme is what I meant by continuation, most certainly not the style. I do find it interesting that a "romantic" theme seems to be consistent throughout this competition. I guess no one can resist the beauty of the oversized cranium and haircut of MODOK. :)

@InspiringMuffin: 
 
What I found hilarious with yours is how it differs from a guys point of view. Guys will put her as the already accepted romance between the two, whereas you depict as yours being disgusted by his advances and fending him off. Mirroring life in a sense. Girls have many guys that they have to push away for one reason or another and guys always want to think they can get the girl. 
 
My new post is "Naked Doodles", My romantic one is in the lot that I posted if you want to see it.
 
 I'm still chuckling...

@DavidR: Not to be a downer or anything, but I wouldn't say it differs from a guys point of view, since I am one. But perhaps a different point of view than one would expect, of course I like to think I'm a bit more of a catch than MODOK, even without the fortune or mental powers.

@DavidR: nice but i thin you misspelled "Tyranny", other than that it is brilliant.
