Transcend. by addenton223 Transcend. by addenton223
I created a physical representation of their race against time. And the downward diagonal path the train is traveling on represents their plunge into the dream world and also the title the "Big Under". The design has only essential components necessary to convey the idea. I like to call it brutal simplicity.

What do you think?

This is so sleek and classy, the train just changes the whole dynamic of the clock, which is already great on its own... I really think this should (should have? lol I'm a little clueless) win.

There's something I love about minimalism that I can't explain. That's really all there is to it. Obviously, the simplicity of the image doesn't really open it to technical praise, but conceptually, this is an extremely strong image. I do love the grungy, painted look of the colored elements, though--they provide just the right amount of verve to the shapes of the piece.

I think as a mind game it,s self it,s just fine.In a contest I would have hoped for more-----Talent. In conveying visual content. Consceptionaly You explained it well though are you going to post your wording with every poster? If not then I envision my self asleep by act two.I am shocked #3 did not win.

there's a bit of Sin City and a bit of Watchman in it, I really like the result, 'cause the message is clear and the graphic captured my eyes :love: Good luck for the contest!

I really like this one. It's probably my favourite of the semifinalists! The train looks like a syringe, and it adds to the overall theme, I think. Well done!

It's definitely striking. Would make me stop and take a second glance if I walked by it in a comic book store. (: Nicely executed.
