Hallo, I am really supraised of the winners results of the machineflesh 2 D. It seems that you don´t promote the new, fresh vision of concept design. Main works you´ve chosen are secondary, and do not discover or show anything new. There were another works which contained much more of visionary and fresh ideas. Also more fantasy in the way of painting. Everything, what I realised, you´ve chosen works, where the main theme was just violence, blood, uglyiness. I have nothing against a bit of cruelty in concept, but those kind of esthetical visions are too literal. In my opinion evil can have more subtile dimension, can it not? It is worth when one’s sometimes use a metaphory to express themselves. To sum up, I have’nt seen anything more than I`ve seen before in comics for example. The more it is astonishing, that there were entered people like Richard Dumont, David Freeman, Panu Uomala, Andrey Lazarev… They introduce some fresh quality into the contest.It would be better if the contests like this would promote the creativity and developement instead of tendency.
Anyway congratulations to the winners
