Video Game of the Year:
Dave: EPICLY pillowshaded. Plus, you've made a Rabbid before and I don't really see much of a difference. Granted I don't really feel like looking the old one up to look at it as I don't really care either. Squig: Here's what I posted at MIB... Nice job, but the proportions are...bad. He looks flat, especially on the arms. The hands look like claws and the shading on the face makes it look a tad lazy. And you have multiple light sources again. The shading on the belt is from the side, while the shading on the rest is from the front. Ezio also had a glove on one of his hands. The belt thing across his chest is lacking all shading in some areas as well. Hopefully you fix this one as it has TONS of potential! Hurricane: Really like it, but the protrusion from his arm looks stiff. The face also doesn't really scream Alex Mercer either as it's a tad to generic. The shading on the clothing is top notch though! My Vote: Hurricane
Wrestler of the Year:
Hurricane: Not much to say other than nice job. The shading on the arms looks a bit pillowy, but i love the rest. Spz: I'm guessing it's a woman because of the hair and cleavage, but it still looks like a dude... My Vote: Hurricane
Artist/Band of the Year:
Spz: I actually like this one, however, the only part that makes it look like a girl is the face. Hurricane: The leather effect is awesome and the hair is fucking great! King of Kings: The arms are too big, and the proportions are a bit off, but I like the patterns on the micro. My Vote: Hurricane
Looks like you've won all four 'Cane! Nice job all around!
Dave: Like Mach said, you’ve made it before and I don’t see a huge difference from what I remember. Shading is pillowy, I get that Josh is helping you with shading but you’ve been at it long enough to know not to do it in the first place, pretty much every forum has a shading and AA tutorial. Shaping is pretty good though and it looks very accurate
Squig: I started a WIP of this character before so I know he’s a real pain in the ass to make. But this looks good overall just a few criticisms. Im not crazy about unnecessarily big micros, proportions tend to get out of whack. The arms also kinda squeeze into the torso making it look very thin, also his crotch is way too low, and the legs are pretty small. Shading is good but a bit lacking in some areas, like the sleeves and shoulder pad, just looks like more could be done. I like the pose a lot you went for though, its pretty well done
Cane: Attire is awesome, I really like the leather effect on the jacket. The hood could cast a bit more of a shadow over his face, in most pics I see of him his face is somewhat obsured. The mutated arm has a cool texture to it, but I do agree that it looks stiff, and the blade ive seen on screenshots has a curve to it
Cane vs Spz
Cane: The resemblance is pretty good, hair especially looks nice. Overall its good but not much to it, attire is good but nothing new really.
Spz: Surprisingly, very good, decent resemblance and the hair is very good, shading is solid throughout, the shoulders look a bit high though, the proportions could use a bit of tweaking, but it’s a huge improvement from the last few ive seen from you. The pants are pretty good, the patches and bleached parts add a good amount of detail
Vote: Spz, amazingly, just a bit more original, and challenging design
Spz vs Cane vs KOK
Spz: Hardly looks at all like your old stuff, which is a good thing, I dunno if your getting help with these but keep doing what your doing. Hair looks great, shirt is pretty good, and the pants look very Cane-like, which is good, again big improvement
Cane: Again I really like the leather-y effect to the jacket (and pants? Looks like it). Dunno who it is but I googled shinedown and could easily spot the one you did, so the resemblance is definitely there, and I really like the colouring on the hair.
KOK: I checked the tag name to find out who it is, didn’t recognize him as Axl Rose, maybe its just that ive never seen him look like that but he looks a lot more built then he is, muscles-wise. The attire is really good though especially the pin stripes on the vest, the jeans look good too but good use some more creases.
Vote: Cane, if it was an improvement contest Spz would take it, but for overall quality I like cane’s best
Video Game of the Year: Wow, Cane, the shading on yours is awsome! Good luck guys, mine was pretty rushed.
Wrestler of the Year:
Hurricane: Although it doesn't stand out massivily, it is the best out of the two. Spz: This doesn't really appeal to me at all. It looks a bit flat as well. My Vote: Hurricane
Artist/Band of the Year:
Spz: This is much better, and I really like it, but Cane said he did most of it for you so... Hurricane: The hair looks awsome, and the shading's great again! King of Kings: It seems kinda outa proportion and lacks AA, but not a bad effeort. My Vote: Hurricane
well then scratch what i said about keep doing what your doing and hand in your own work for Christ's sake spz
He asked if he could just hand my edit in and I said it's fine, so theres no problems there. Just I'm not gonna give him credit for it all when he's facing me, plus I'd prefer he actually learn from the hours I've spent helping him..
I've spent probably 3 hours the last few weeks helping Dave and he's actually improved a bit in those weeks. Still has a long way to go, but he's improving.

I looked at SPZ's micro in shock at how good it looked, but then I read that it wasn't all him. I don't particularly care, my micro isn't the greatest in the world, I really wanted to do something for fun.
If it's alright with everyone I'm gonna vote later, I've got a miserable headache.

Alright here are my votes:
Video Game of the Year: I wish you labeled the micros a little better, I see four names and three micros. Either way, my vote goes to whoever made the Assassin's Creed character.
Wrestler of the Year: Hurricane's Jericho. But SPZ has def. improved, the hair looks like hair for once! I dislike the random lines on the side of the jeans. it still looks good, but I like the Jericho alot more. It has some resemblance and the attire is well done.
