Madman Anime Tag Team Art Comp Winners

This time around on the Madman Fanzone, the artists got rough, lowdown and dirty for tag-team art beatdown!

Celebrating the launch of Madman’s new TNA Wrestling label, we’ve seen many anime contenders step into the ring.

The task was to put together an anime tag team of 2 or 3, with the option to depict a set of rivals to wrestle against. So who were the meanest anime contenders to cross the line? Mud wrestling included!

Read on for our winners and honourable mentions!

Winner

Bald and the Beautiful

Bald And The Beautiful by Bijoux

Fanzone regular Bijoux really pulled out ALL the stops for this competition, laying the smackdown with a whole wrestling tournament’s worth of cool tag teams; and not only were the teams funny, cool and creatively themed but we got to see a series of battles – depicting action and movement with some nice character work. We picked this piece as our favourite team, but make sure you click Bijoux’s profile to see them all.
Here’s a couple more we liked: Land Down Under Part 1 and Part 2, Fat Pride.

Bijoux wins 1st prize of a $150 Madman store voucher!

Second Place

Girl Fight

Girl fight by AJChan

Another kick-ass entry, this time from AJChan, whose image not only looks great but completely expresses the concept all in one image – two teams, and it’s no holds barred, there’s even hair pulling! Ouch!

AJChan wins 2nd prize of a $100 Madman store voucher!

Third Place

An Unbeatable Foe???

An Unbeatable Foe??? by The Jin

Talk about dynamic action! The Jin produced a number of excellent pieces for this competition, but we couldn’t go past this titanic matchup between Goku and… Totoro?! In a wonderfully sequenced set of punchy, hilarious panels, we see just what kind of challenge Goku is up against!

The Jin wins 3rd prize of a $75 Madman store voucher!

Fourth Place

TNA Anime Fundraiser

TNA Anime Fundraiser by Corz I Can

Round-ing out our belt-wearing art titans for this month is Corz I Can with another excellent piece that communicates everything this competition is about – odd tag team pairings, and hugely entertaining action, in this case a frightening bodyslam from xxxHolic’s Yuko! Special mention to Corz I Can for regular encouragement of all the up and coming artists in the comments section – keep it up!

Corz I Can wins 4th prize of a $50 Madman store voucher!

Special Mud Wrestling Section

What wrestling competition would be complete without getting into a bit of mud?

Two of our above winners had a bit of fun playing off each other’s work, keeping it clean with both Mens and Womens leagues in the inaugural Madman Mud Wrestling competition!

Hidden Leaf Village Womens Only Tag Team Mud Wrestling by Corz I Can
Hidden Leaf Village Mens Only Tag Team Mud Wrestling by The Jin

No extra prizes for these – just a hot (or should that be cold?) shower!

Honorable Mentions

There were again so many good pieces out of the many wonderful entries that we wanted to highlight some more strong pieces. All of these honorable mentions will receive a surprise DVD!

ASTRO BOY VS. CAPCOM by Biz

A good job by newcomer Biz with a great all action piece, with all the contenders in clear teamups, taking part in the one image – plus Astro is using the butt-gun!

Onizuka and Masane by zardos_demon

An hilarious piece with one of the few bonafide wrestling moves of the competition, with (Great Teacher) Onizuka putting a mysterious straight-jacketed figure in a mighty leg-lock! Painful!

Cute can be Deceiving by Rukaria

Our two determined animal heroes look ready for battle as energy swirls about them in this great image, and we got a good chortle from Rukaria’s concept – that Tony Tony Chopper and Xiao-Mei are sick of being picked on by the other forest animals and are taking a stand!

Speed Racer and Initial D by Big Unit

While the artwork may be rudimentary, Big Unit has been kicking out some killer creative concepts in this competition. We loved the event poster idea seen here, an format noone else thought to use – and a lot of thought went into it – parking lot brawl for beer money! Great fun, and check out the 80’s Toons lethal lockdown, among other pieces.
