In the spoiler below you will find each of the valid entries. Please keep in mind that the art may be altered or substituted in the render if they win, so do not base your vote on art alone.

Last week we had 2 users vote for themselves. Believe it or not, I can view the poll results - I can also make them public. Be a good sport and vote for someone other than yourself, or I will make them public and let everyone see how low you can go. You will also be immediately disqualified. Just sayin'.

You can find the poll here. It will close in 24 hours.
