Welcome to the polls for the eighteenth General Art contest, and the first since GA became LEGO-in-general! The theme of this contest was Battlescapes -- to draw a battle of some kind, whether between two opponents or more, in a setting. Your job now is to choose the best artwork!Since there were only twelve entries total, I have decided not to split the contest into categories. There are two preliminary polls; the top three winning entries from each, or more if there are ties (depending) will move on to a final round, where three winners will be selected. Prizes will be gift cards for LEGO Shop@Home. :)Thumbnails link to medium size full images; please click each thumbnail to view those before voting. If you would like to learn more including artist comments, larger versions, or artist topic links, the entry titles below the thumbnails are links to the entry posts. Select the number in the above poll that corresponds to the entry you prefer in the randomized list below.Preliminary round begins now; ends at 11:59 PM EST Sunday June 17.Entries:

Man, very tough decision between 3 and 6. Both were well drawn, and the latter was ponies, but in the end seemed just a bit too cluttered, even if it's supposed to be a battle. 3 still conveys the battle feel while being cleaner. Thus, I went with 3 in the end.

I voted for my brother Aanchir's entry, #6. As much as I wanted to like #3 based on how many rave reviews I heard (including from Aanchir himself), I felt it suffered from issues with posing and composition. While #6 certainly has a lot going on, I like that each element of it is discernable, so that all six Toa in it can share the spotlight.

Voted for five. Three was well-drawn, but I had absolutely no idea what was going on, as the various characters seemed pretty poorly posed. For instance, I don't know what the figure on the right is doing, where their face is, or where their arms are.~B~

Tough choice, but ultimately it came down to 3 and 5 for me. I picked 3. Nice job to all the contestants, though.
