The Youth Crew design is amazing, but I am old school straightedge. Killer design.

wow! we're back in LA... The Las Vegas Magic convention was fun! My wife Nataka and I colabed and painted a skateboard, a turntable and a sewing machine. i'll post pics later
I'm really loving all the designs that have been coming in. I can't wait to start picking the winning designs soon. I'll post some more entries that we received in the mail. Thanks for getting involved. We're really trying to make this a community based art project. They be some known heavy hitting artist in the series but we really want to shed some light on the up coming talent.

Blessings

Shiro

I like ms doo doo splat's the best. I think the details might get lost in 7 inch though.

I think she should make a bigger splash :)

aww this totally made my day :D yannozz I was thinking the same thing about the details. I kinda have a bad habit of making too many details that nobody will notice or will force a person to bust out with a magnifying glass. but hopefully it'll still be a-ok for a 7incher. :/

here's a bigger pic of my submissions for you to lookyloo ^_^

I have to say that your "Beauty of the Soul" design is by far my favorite submission in the contest overall. I could see that one sitting on the shelf with my toy collection.

OMG, that would be awesome! But hopefully it just gets picked so you can get your stuff out there to the people. With that much talent you definitely deserve to have your own toy.

Shiro please pick LOVE GROWS!!!

I you really look at the design, it totally flows in both concept and execution. Plus pink colored toys always look great.

I'm loving a lot of the designs! all I can say at this point is that Miss Doo Doo Splat's name has been buzzing around here at the lab and around at a few toy stores in LA... she's a crowd favorite!

I just wanted all the artist to know that we've been making stickers to promote the contest we're going to send sticker packs to all the people that have sent in a submission once this is all finished. we're also going to extend the contest deadline a little longer because we have a major magazine that wants to run the contest in they're next issue. i'm working out the details with the magazine right now but i'll post all the details once everything is concrete.

Thanks again for all the great submissions.

p.e.a.c.e.

Woohoo, things are really heating up and this is getting really exciting. At this point, even before the contest has ended and all, I want to say thanks to Shiro for putting this opportunity out there for some artists(like myself) who may not get an opportunity like this otherwise.

Do it up anyway you can, just follow the details in the first post in the thread. He has some small guidelines there.

...yeah, what he said. :) I welcome hand drawn art. One of the artist that are going to be in the series just turned in a hand drawn design and it's one of my favorites so far. I'm waitng on a few more of the known artist that are going to be a part of the series to turn in they're designs then I'll post the list of names and a sneek peek at series 1. for those that don't get picked in series 1 you'll have a good chance at being apart of series 2. We want do what we can to get some new artist some exposure.
Here's another design that was submitted:

I'll post more later tonight or tomorrow morning.

thanks again to all the positive email and designs we've been getting.

Yo Shiro, are you going to extend the contest deadline? I still didn't get mine in yet, so the extra time would help me! Thanks!

Yo Shiro. Looks like you're gonna have a hard time picking the best designs, huh (there are a lot of amazing ones). Anyway, good luck... and that second series sounds like a good idea.

So, here's a little request for anyone following this contest...

I rather like the two designs I submitted (the fellow in the grey suit, and the wood grain)- that's why I submitted them... but it's not just about what I like. Does anyone have any critiques of these two (like, dislike, just don't care)? Any feedback would help, because I want these guys in your collection.

-Thanks

Totally stoked for these.
It's always good to see more abstract sculpts, It's wayyy more fun to work on figures that aren't specifically one animal or item. This led me toward a more design-based...design, but an eye still managed to creep in...
