The UNKO Challenge: Vote Now

As promised here are the pieces from the first ever UNKO Challenge. Each participant was limited to using only the Wacom and reference images if needed. We've decided in an attempt to keep voting honest, no one was allowed to use any distinguishable markings, names, or designer's likenesses in their pieces. (After all you're voting for the image NOT the person that created the image.) Also try to keep the voting based on imagery NOT the person in the image. Leave your vote in the comments section. Click the image if you need a larger view. The winner gets nothing more than bragging rights but what artist doesn't like to brag?! So choose wisely.

*EDIT: If the CAPTCHA is not showing a field to enter anything, click the CAPTCHA image and drag it down or press the "tab" key on your keyboard until you see the entry field*

I vote for entry three.

You gotta love the capture of emomtion on a great musician live on stage. The black and white just adds to what is being displayed on stage. Overall a great depiction by the artist.

the Prince once is nice BUT the Santigold one looks like an actual painting!! How the heck do you do that digitally?! Plus I like how they did the funky patterns in the background, they're very "Santigold-y" lol so I vote #4

I'm voting #2. Love the modern concept and the hair itself looks great and really time consuming. Great work to everyone though. What a dope contest.

I'll Take Door Number 4 Please...

GOODENess said...

I'm gonna say #3 cuz it looks like the real thing...the shadowing, angle, and the facial expression make it a winner...

#4 is a close second...the colors and expressions in the faces are real! The chick on top loses me though, she doesn't feel like the rest of the piece.

Peace!
