Following the, admittedly flawed somewhat, initial voting stage, we have come down to the top 19 voted avatars.

 

Vote for your winner, only one vote per person.

Is it possible that you forgot to make it a public poll ? I can't seem to see who voted on what avatar.

ok looking over them it was a hard choice between #4 #6 #13 #14

 

#4 With this awesome smile and the hair in the wind, damn fucking good. WHO DID THIS?

 

#6 Same thing, the suddle movement with the beard and overall quality good choice as well.

 

#13 Kung Fury, liked the short film and nice quality, plus pose and again a suddle movement of the .gif

 

#14 tho got my vote, i dont know why, but this cigarre is doing it for me, the effect looks so good and my gutt said take this one :D

 

All in all i would have like to do another multi vote, because for me all four of them are finalist, but i hope they make it all to the next stage, without knowing if there will be one :P

2 does it for me, the amount of work that must have gone into it, plus the absolute quality throughout. Consistent quality.

I must be missing something because #1 does not appeal to me in the slightest way.

I really like #5 too for the same reason as #2 but, its just a little shorter.

But #12 would get this for me if none of these were animated, which is why I struggle to see why people are picking #1

It was between #2, #4, #6, #7 and #14 for me. Very high quality avatars.

Well for me i would say that in 4 and 6 its only eyes and mouth that are cut out and put on a moving gif compared to 2 and 5 the whole face are moving(even if 2 isn’t really moving that much it still moves and changes camera angel) and whole face are customized. And that pretty much means you have to make one avatar for every frame in the gif and make them look more or less exactly the same but in dif angels etc  comparing to cut out a nose and eyes and put them on top of a cool pick. so to even compare them are for me ridiculous. No ill intet ment for the creators of  4 and 6 but the amount and quality of work needed are not even close

#6 was surprisingly more work, but the work was "extra" and essentially you're right, I just did eyes and nose.

 

With the "additional work", the beard stroking picture was of some fat geeky dude with glasses which I didn't like, so I took Erick Rowan (WWE wrestler)'s head and blended his sideburn into the beard and added his face on top of the beard. Again, that's "extra work" and not as relevant to what you said. Yeah it was pretty much just eyes and nose.

I know what your saying here, but i need to say this. I am not voting on how much work was put into an Avatar, but on a finished "product". At least thats how i see it. The moving avatar must have been a bitch to do, but it is compared to others not really well round up Avatar at least for what i think this award is for.

Still respect for the work, tho.

 

Its hard to put my spelling in this, but read it as a good discussion, not a smug answer. Don`t understand it wrong i just wanna say. :P

Not at all, everyone have the right to have an opinion and everyone’s taste is different and the fact is I like the avatars and have total respect for the guys who did them but its not like they were some incredible feat to pull off infact  they are probably two of the easiest in the whole bunch to make,

But as you said the finished product is what’s most important and finding good source material is a part of getting a good result and that they have done and like clydebankblitz said he mixed diffrent sources to get the look he wanted and thats excellent.

But personally I prefer something a bit more complicated for an award like this maybe because I make avatars myself I would much rather vote for something that makes you think "Damn! How on earth did he pull that of" instead of "Oh that’s a cool pic, but I could probably have done the same myself in around 15 minutes" And thats what happend when i saw number two the first time and that inspiried me to make number 5 and also the bruce lee gif i made so thx GWad for that.

For me, it's a bit of everything. If something looks good, it looks good. With some of them though you might think "Is that it?" with what they did. That's why I voted #2. I can not only appreciate how it looks but the LOADS of work they put into it.
