Last Friday, I asked the budding digital artists among you to whip up some fancy Russian nesting doll-related imagery for your chance to win one of 10 vouchers for Double Fine's latest lovely laugh riot Stacking. And man oh man did you deliver. There's so much talent in our li'l community it brings a tear to my eye. It's almost like some of you are professional artists or something!
 
It was so hard to choose these winners, I can't even tell you. It was heart wrenching. But chosen them I have, and here they are. Winners, look for your codes via PM soon, and thanks to everyone who participated!

Clearly this gentleman knows that you always fight Air Man first. Don't ask how I know that.

Cardboard-box nesting doll might be the best thing in this whole contest.

Would have been better if the plasma cutter was splitting the necro-doll around its seam, but the amount of detail on that mining suit doll is great.

I'm sensing some Double Fine/Capcom t-shirt design brand synergy potential with this one. Fantastic work.

This guy scored points for working in a fairly unusual medium.

I think you'll all agree it's the spine that really makes this one.

Ezio doll inside Desmond doll is just too good a concept to ignore.

I like the sort of tartan background pattern. Also, that's exactly how a metroid would eat you in real life! You know, because metroids are really real and everything.

 
BluSteele
I kinda wish these guys stacked in the order you fight them, but having Bison levitating and the expressions on their faces really make this one.

My personal bias aside, the amount of detail in this image is just stunning. Dude, I'm pretty sure the amount of your time you put into this is worth more than $15. Check out the high-res version for the full effect. That giant colossus doll is crazy!

#11 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -

Fuuuuck those are good. I was too lazy to go through each page to look at them all but good picks for sure.  Mortal Kombat, Ryu, and MGS are my favorites.

Most of my favorite ones won. People are a lot more artistic than I am!

#15 Posted by Slaker117 (4843 posts) -

These are all pretty great. Especially like the MK, AC and MGS ones.

#16 Posted by normal (70 posts) -

It's hard to feel bad losing to these cause they all did a good job. Fun contest.

#17 Posted by elephantjewls (25 posts) -

wish I had had time to submit something. but with having a job where I work weekends...

#18 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4606 posts) -

I liked the other Dead Space one better, the one where he actually shoots the necrodoll in half. Oh well. These are still awesome!

#19 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2730 posts) -

All of them are absolutely fantastic, but the MK one has to be my favorite. 

#20 Posted by MegaMetaTurtle (414 posts) -

There were so many great entry's that I do not even feel remotely bad for losing. I would love to see more contest like this for future GB promotions.

Glad to finally get some resolution, even if I didn't make the cut, I was on tenterhooks for 2 days, heh.

#27 Posted by SuperJoe (896 posts) -

These are all great!  Too bad the Assuming Direct Control one didn't win.  That was one of my favorites.

#28 Posted by Sveppi (129 posts) -

#31 Posted by OneAndOnlyBigE (449 posts) -

It took me about two seconds of browsing the thread before I realized that I shouldn't even bother with this contest.  Congrats to the winners.

#32 Edited by KnifeySpoony (1167 posts) -
They're all great entries, congrats guys! I really like the hadouken and mortal kombat ones. 
@SuperJoe: I agree, assuming direct control was great.

#35 Edited by Moth_Pope (457 posts) -

Well done to the winners! Some of my personal favourites aren't there sadly (really liked the VATS one), but good picks nonetheless for sure. All amazing work here. That Ryu one is great on an artistic level and I like the MGS one a lot.
 
I'd also like to see more competitions like this. Hopefully I'll have better luck next time.

#36 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Amazing work! Congratulations, guys :)

#37 Posted by Jimbo (9937 posts) -

Ryu is probably my favourite design, but the AC concept is genius.
