    At the risk of being too wordy (but would I be Leslie Barkley if I wasn’t wordy?) I want to first apologize to Joe, Brett, Steel and Knight for winning this clash. I did not have PhotoShop at my disposal, as I was trying to hide my entry from Brett, and was not able to do any of the very simple things I needed to do to accomplish the look I was going for. I had the wrong background color – no contrast – the gauntlet is absolutely atrocious, not at all what I had in mind, and I had no lens flare in the program to cover up the hideous gauntlet. Anyway, I will return, and hope to someday win with something I’m even partially proud of. I always think JG Jones when I think of Black Widow, and was hoping to do her and Mr. Jones some justice in fan art (since I’m not an actual artist). In the meantime, thank you to any poor soul who voted for me over the beautiful art posted this week.

    As my gift to the artists on this board, I have chosen an Art Clash I’ve been wanting to do since this was started January 1st. I am VERY excited to see the artists tackle this one – simple but will be a joy to look through the art in the thread. I hope to see Rachel’s entry as well, I’ve missed her art. Anyone who has joined but not posted yet, please join this week (ahem, mmmpig, et. al.)

    The next week’s clash will be posted soon.

    We were moving to a different city this week, in a hotel for most of it, chaos, etc, so yes, we NEED to do Joe’s idea again – I HAD A COVER CHOSEN! Grrrrr!!! Great work, everyone and thanks again, Joe! Welcome, Oliver, hope to see lots more from you!

    Knight Man! Dude, this is one of my favorite pieces of yours. I LOVE how the wolf is behind some of the trees, lurking……… creepy and excellent. You did an awesome job on this one!!! It looks like you enjoyed it, you know?!

    WHOA!!!! The reveal we’ve all been waiting for!!! Steel, that style is FANTASTIC. I LOVE THIS PIECE! You made us wait a long time to see it, but it was worth the wait! Love the line work, pose, all of it. I really like how patient you were, working on it for 5 months before telling anyone or revealing it. Very proud of your work, Steel!!!

    Holy cow! I LOVE these! Oh my gosh!!! One of my favorite ideas, too! The painting is gorgeous in all. I also love the skull in Steel’s. Brett, WOW. This should be in some Star Wars concept art hardcover. Geez

    Dear LORD this is breathtaking. WOW! Brett, the watercolor alone is stunning, but adding the thin inks to the outer edges put it way over the top. Blown away by this one.

    One of my favorite ideas so far, up there with Joe’s re-draw an iconic cover idea. These are GORGEOUS! Rachel, I love it! Did you have fun? It looks like you were having fun with the painting! GREAT ENTRY!

    Brett, I want to meet that frog and ride down a stream in his little boat!

    Joe,

    No joke, this is the coolest idea. It’s SO good that I’m
    Going to going to try to draw something. I have NO idea how I’m going to accomplish something even resembling “art”, but this idea is so freaking powerful that I can’t stop thinking about it! I have three ideas currently…

    THANK YOU, JOE! I don’t know how I’ll wait a week to see the posts!!!!!!
