    4/18 Face Off All Stars - Show Discussion

    Gargoyle Guardians - The dinal four must create a gargoyle inspired by a different style of architecture.

    Enjoy the show!

    I'm shocked that Tyler went home. I had him pegged to make it to the finale and thought sure George would go home tonight, especially based on how much trouble he had. I guess I should have known better than to trust the edit! I liked Tyler's gargoyle, but I think it was a bit too on the nose of a classic gargoyle. Plus, I can think of lots of details he could have added to make it more Victorian in feel.

    I can't imagine that the finals will be a three-way competition. More than likely, it'll be between Cig and Emily, with George coming in a distant third.

    I was surprised too because his was better made overall. If George's wings were more than an airplane wing (that's what they looked like to me) I'd been more OK with his winning. It really did come down to the Victorian theme missing in his design - though his tendency to do a squeezed in face was becoming too repetitive.

    Was so happy Cig was easily in (if he was out I'd been done with the season) and Emily definitely redeemed herself this week. I didn't think she should've advanced in the past couple of weeks, but that Art Deco gargoyle was stunning.

    Cig was also spot on with the onion domes for the Russian Renaissance. Even St. Basil's cathedral doesn't have repeating designs on the domes.

    I can't imagine that the finals will be a three-way competition. More than likely, it'll be between Cig and Emily, with George coming in a distant third.
    I think so too - but we have seen the long shot win in this series.

    Emily should win. She has been consistently wonderful throughout the competition. Whereas, the others have been up and down. She just amazes me, but I am constantly impressed with how much talent all of these contestants have.

    My favorite gargoyle was the Russian Onion Domes. So creative and beautiful.
