Here’s the comments from the judges:

-TastyBrush is back from the dead! The image is really well composed and lit wonderfully. Nice work!
-it was between Kuru and Tastybrush, I found that Kuru had some issues with the scale of parts within the image, values and a wide palette. The plants was a bit too forced into the composition as well so Tasty snatched it! shout out to Vorsp for a cool image
-Bruce Romanos: Nice and tense! Would like to see a better value scheme and final rendering however!
-Vorsp: Nice and creepy, interesting magic/gore – would like to see some areas more rendered, greater emphasis on a focal point or two.
-Jacob Mobley: Love your work and I’m all for recycling/reuse/remixing but this could be blended a bit better, feels disjointed.
-Deerbard: Nice style and the male moonlight figure is strong. Not sure I understand the narrative and the female portrait seems to be missing a large portion of the back of her head!
-Zyalin: Freaky narrative and imagery. Would like to see a more cohesive and accurate anatomy, maybe more form/head to torso connection on the “victim”.
-TastyBrush: Winner is you! Fantastic composition, rendering, flow, concept and humor.
-Kuru: Nice characters and rendering; composition and posing doesn’t feel as epic as I’d want for something as epic as what’s happening!
-Aumes Ronoy: Got that heavy metal album feel down for sure! The pose has me a bit confused, feels like she’s falling over? Also feel’s a bit “flyswatted” flat, might be better to have an overall flow or directional pose. Background skull is a bit hard to read.
-Fer: Nice lighting scheme! Not sure I’m getting “Back from the dead” from the subjects however. I’d like to see a better value scheme for readability for the mask(?) especially.
-Atzgee: Kudos for traditional medium and the forlorn mood! Compositionally I might try and stage your elements/subjects closer together to have less deadspace. Think bookcovers!
-Purrmia: Nice character and expression! Would have been good to see some of the undead army with the same intensity, as if there were an extension of her emotion.
