    This is going to be a toughie but here goes.

    painting - 7
    theme - 8

    Very nice little piece. If anything has let it down it's the base and we could have done with some bigger pics.

    painting - 7
    theme - 8.5

    Is this a wag piece? both mini's are painted very well but more shading on their skin to aid contrast would have been nice.

    Theme - 6/10 for both of you. Theres an animal I guess in each, but nothing imaginative or orginal in either. Does what it says on the tin though.

    Painting - 7/10 for both of you again. Both nice and solid, though each could do with some stronger contrast. Vegascat's moulded base is a little plain but the painting edges out wags by a smidge, Wags on the other hand edges out the shark with some good attention to scene structure, even if the narrative is a little vague.

    "Hey ging-er, wanna see my tool?"

    edit - Ahhh, thats better Wag! In that case have another couple of points for an original take on the theme.

    So... Theme/paint: Wag 8/7, VC 6/7

    Hey where's my caption that goes with the picture - it's senseless without it!

    Amy:The SAME ! Are you calling me a Muppet, Doctor. What is it now, my hair?
    Dr: No, Pond. Not same, similar. He's a drummer and you, well, you're always banging on about something.

    this ones tough

    Vegas: Painting: 7 - Those eyes are plain evil, I love it! Some bigger pics would be nice (though you are getting much better!) Can't say much more without a good photo.
    Theme: 5 - He's an animal. Can't say much more than that. A wereshark is kind of a creative were-beast though.

    Painting: 6 - seeing some great shades and highlights save on the faces. Nothing much else to say regarding painting.
    Theme: 7 - Well, before even reading the caption I knew 2 important things: 1 they were talking about the poster and 2: who the characters were, even without being familair with the model range! I think your bushes are a bit out of place but that's the only real downside to this I can think of.

    Very hard to prefer one over the other as I like them both in their own way.

    vegas cat 7
    waghorn 7

    vegas Cat 7
    waghorn 6 (fun idea, but no actual animal painted)

    Well done guys

    Vegascat: paint/theme 6,5/6
    Yes, some better pics would be nice, but well done overall and I like the sharkskin.

    Wag: paint/theme 6/7 (after I found the text to go with the dio)
    The jacket on the lady is really good, but the skin and faces of both minis could benefit from a bit of shading/highlights. Cool take on the theme.

    Good luck both of you!

    painting - 7
    theme - 7

    Like the mini and it's neatly done, although the photos could be better. Personally I would have preffered a bigger base but that aside I really like the colour of the sharkskin and also the stripey trousers.

    painting - 6.5
    theme - 8.5

    The theme made me chuckle and the composition works well. Hair and flesh need some definition for me but I like the shading on Amy's boots and her jacket is particularly well done.

    Two good pieces, well done both of you.

    I think I'd have to give equal marks for painting. You both have clean lines, good colors, and nice shading. So...

    Painting - 7
    Theme - 8.5
    Definitely pushed the theme beyond the barnyard!

    Painting - 7
    Theme - 9
    I never saw that one coming!
