2014 Character Cup - 2D
Updated ~9 pm CST - Time is running away with me and I totally forgot to get your opinions on the pictures to use for the rest of the contest, so if you could take a look at the pictures polls below the character polls and vote your choice I would appreciate it. I'll look at them a few hours before the character polls close to create the new ones. Thanks so much for participating as always! And a special thanks to everyone who submitted pictures. I do really appreciate it.
Congratulations to Vincent Keller, Olivia Dunham, Tyrion Lannister, and Damon Salvatore for continuing to round 3. Again we had some very tight races with Damon vs. Walter White separated by a mere 7 votes - a new record for this contest. Here's hoping today's polls provide as much excitement. Remember to keep those pictures coming for characters going into round 3 and thanks so much to everyone who has already sent pictures. You can get them to me by either posting them in the comments, e-mailing them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweeting them to @dahne1. I appreciate any help you can give. Until tomorrow, keep commenting and happy voting!

TV Job - Yep, I am putting you to work. I've selected pictures for this round but chances are you have better ones. Therefore, it's your job to find a picture of anyone moving into round 3 or be stuck with the first thing I found on Google Image. You can pop a picture into the comments below, e-mail me at email@example.com, or tweet me @dahne1. Guidelines:
1. Must be fully clothed and PG please!
2. Clearly shows the character's face
3. Is just the character and not a group thing
4. No gifs - jpeg or png only please
TV Talk Topic - Today the topic is spin-offs, courtesy of Emma. Thanks! Do you like spin-offs? What are your favorites? Which ones didn't work for you? What does it take to make a good spin-off? What are common spin-off mistakes? Are there any shows in which you would like a spin-off?
Picture Polls - Choose which one you want to represent the character. Any pictures too big may be cropped.
