UNDERGROUND TITLE #1 CONTENDER MATCH
JAGGED vs ANDREA
SUBJECT: advertise the official match between Kevin Owens (c) and Goldberg with the WWE Universal Championship on the line at Fastlane 2017.

So fresh so clean, it's nothing special, but it's still good. Would have changed the font and added something in the background to show some other pictures of both contenders, anyway there's a simple composition with a perfect execution. The font used is weird but effective aswell because you matched the different colours to build it in the same style of the logo.

ANDREA: http://i68.tinypic.com/a47knk.jpg
I'm not a fan of that yellow all around, I know the PPV has that in the logo but you over-played with the frame effect on the bottom and the hues all over the renders and background are too much yellow-ish, feels like there's a lack of depth and impact.

THE WINNER IS... JAGGED !!!!

ELIMINATION CHAMBER QUALIFICATION MATCH for PDG SHOCKWAVE
WORKOUTF vs THROWAWAY
SUBJECT: John Cena isn't the WWE Champion anymore and at Wrestlemania he's stepping into the ring for the very last time fighting the only opponent missing in his career at Mania... THE UNDERTAKER! Create the OFFICIAL poster for this year Wrestlemania, using ONE of the two contenders (Cena or Taker) focusing on the concept of this contest, which has never taken place before at 'Mania and should be the last match of both (not in their career overall but only for their Wrestlemania appearences).
Remember, use only ONE of the two contenders, but still let us know about the match taking place.

WORKOUTF: https://i.imgbox.com/L6X59wKH.png
Maybe it's something I would see in october or november's pay per views instead of Wrestlemania, it's a great poster talking about composition and impact but not looking neither official or epic. Taker's T is almost hidden and I can't see any reason to put a plane so visible on the most important flyer of the year. I suggested to focus on the concept more than the graphic itself... you did the opposite.

THROWAWAY: https://i.imgbox.com/GRTSqtos.png
Dark... and meaningless I think. Yeah there's Undertaker but it covers everything else without explaining nothing. I like the layout if it should have been only a one man poster but hey, we're talking about the biggest match in the history of Wrestlemania maybe... or at least one of the top 3. Way too simple for me.

THE WINNER IS... WORKOUTF !!!!

I really like the "never before, never again" phrase, is something catchy and super-effective as it really get us into the hype the match needs. But I don't agree with 3 images of John Cena as it clearly ruins the atmosphere of a good concept. You could have put the right image of the big face of Cena looking at the top left moon, where you could have put the Undertaker's T creating something as mystic as beautiful.

LUCASBLACK: https://i.imgbox.com/dyXSWz13.png
It has the look of a semi-official Wrestlemania poster with those sparkling lights and the picture used but lightning and impact are not so good detailed, I feel like you could have put more effort on lightning, I really like the Cena image you've chosen by the way. The text above is something I would never do in this case with not much space and the logo on bottom right is something that lot of people do in graphic design, but at least make it visible and strong enough, not almost blended with dark gradient.

THE WINNER IS... OGGY !!!!!

I think this is something you did just to avoid ending up with a no-show which is a thing that I appreciate but I wrote twice you should have put only one of them on the poster. And there's no concept in that I think you've developed as it doesn't have any special match feeling or wrestlemania's look. So you're DQ'd.

METALTEO: http://i.imgur.com/RgvzYy2.png
Just brilliant, just perfect. Everything I asked is in this, I can't find anything bad in this piece... just congratulations man, I love layout, composition, love the concept, texts/phrases and every piece is well blended. Great job.

The winner is... METALTEO96 !!!!

SINGLE MATCH
STAPLES vs GROM
SUBJECT: JBL returns as a manager of a tag team he's recruiting. Pick 2 superstars from Raw or Smackdown and create the promotional poster showing the ex Wrestling God and his clients, creating a logo and an overall style for the team would be a great plus.

STAPLES: http://abload.de/img/teamalternativecjshz.png
Nice impact, not a fan of the emptiness all around the renders but can't ignore it's everything well done from lightning to fonts and colours. An average work, good workout for your upcoming title defense. Great idea about the "make tag teams great again" because it's definitely something contemporary.

GROM: https://i.imgbox.com/IhO63o7o.png
The more you work on the background colours, the more you need to avoid blending main renders on it. When you come up with a messy color scheme and try to blend things all in one style, you really ruin the potential of the work. Here we have two well-placed renders on a good stock but too merged, nothing stands and has impact... even JBL itself it's disturbing in that position. Try to give every elemet its colour and focus on details of the composition next time, you'll be sorting out something far better.

THE WINNER IS... STAPLES !!!

TAG TEAM MATCH - MYSTERIOUS PARTNERS
RHYSE & ??? vs GLINJA & ???
SUBJECT: An UFC Fighter debuts in WWE and pro-wrestling against Brock Lesnar in a Street Fight match at Extreme Rules 2017. Create the poster for the event: the place, style and stuff involved in the graphics will be street-based things, something to make clear the match is not happening in a simple arena but something completely different... this should be brutal.

RHYSE & GHERDEZ: https://i.imgbox.com/tU7PrV9M.png
Just feeling this is too empty for how big you made it, there's no need to make it extra-large if you don't know what to put on it. Nothing special on the background but I like colours and textures, I just wouldn't have added the renders behind the wood and almost blended with the background, there was lot of space to play with, you clearly failed with the layout. Effects are nice, logo needed to be white and texts under the logo (The notorious ecc.) needed a better font choice, there's too much difference between "NOTORIOUS" and "versus" ...just look how huge is the difference of style between them.

GLINJA & WORKOUTF: https://i.imgbox.com/xNZm9eoP.png
Nice layout, not like your opponents who have messed it up with a large document, but it has strange things too. Fire on Lesnar's punch is not looking fire (for the colours and McGregor looks low quality. Ad all of a sudden a black space with logo and texts... wow, those are some of the worst text effects i have seen since i've been there, it surprises me because you two have quality skills at this and you proved it... don't like the gradient and the font (planet kosmos) used. And most important thing guys: I requested to put the match outside an arena and to make it clear... but you really look like you put an arena-image on the background.

THE WINNERS ARE... RHYSE & GHERDEZ !!!!!!!

The large document mess is totally my bad, but I felt like working on a small one wouldn't let us fit what you asked on the stip. Overall, nice to be back winning in a PDG match. GG Rhyse.
