The artists get to work tattooing their real-life insect images and the judges deliberate on the winner of the flash challenge.

- SO I'M NOT ENTIRELY SUREIF WE'RE GONNA BE DOING THIS,

BUT YOU WANNA SEE WHATIT LOOKS LIKE?

I HAVE A LOT OF BLURRY PHOTOS,AND I'M SCARED.

IF I DON'T THINK IT'S GONNALOOK GOOD AS A TATTOO,

I'M NOT GONNA DO IT ON YOU.

THE STAKES ARE HIGH WITH THIS.I CAN'T [bleep] UP.

- 30 MINUTES TO GO, EVERYBODY.

- HAVE YOU EVER DONE ANY BUGSLIKE THIS BEFORE?

- OH, SCORPION?HELL, YEAH.

THIS IS MY FIRST TATTOO.I'M REALLY EXCITED TO SEE

HOW I STACK UP AGAINSTTHE COMPETITION.

I WANT TO VALIDATE AMERICAVOTING ME BACK.

IT'S A BIT RUDIMENTARYOF A DESIGN.

COULD HAVE GONE A LITTLE BIGGER,BUT I WAS SCARED TO.

LAST SEASONI OVER-COMPLICATED EVERYTHING.

BUT I LIKE THE SHADOWS.THIS SEASON I'M TRYING TO SHOW

THAT I LEARNED FROM MY MISTAKES.

- FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE.

THAT IS IT.TIME'S UP, MACHINES DOWN.

NO MORE INK.

- I'M WORRIED BECAUSE MINEIS POTENTIALLY THE WORST.

I AM FREAKING OUT.

- MATTI, HOW WAS THIS EXPERIENCEFOR YOU?

- WELL, I'VE TRIED SHOOTIN'REFERENCE BEFORE,

BUT IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENTWHEN THAT REFERENCE WANTS TO

STING THE [bleep] OUT OF YOU.- YEAH, I WOULD IMAGINE.

- I LIKE THE GRADATIONIN THE SHADOW ITSELF

FROM THE BLACK TO THE GRAY TOREALLY GIVE IT THAT DIMENSION.

I THINK IT WAS A GREAT JOB.- THANKS.

- SCOTT.- THE DRASTIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

THE SCORPION AND THE SHADOWGIVES IT THE DIMENSION

THAT WE'RE LOOKIN' FOR.- MELISSA.

- YOU DID A REALLY GOOD JOBPICKIN' THAT POSE.

GETTING THE RIGHT ANGLE OF THISIS A VERY GOOD START.

THE SHADOWS GIVE ITA GOOD DIMENSION ON WHICH WAY

THIS THING IS GOIN'.- BUBBA.

- THE SHADOWS GO INTHE RIGHT DIRECTION.

IT DOES GIVE IT THE DIMENSIONTHAT WE'RE LOOKIN' FOR.

MY COMPLAINT--IF YOU HAVE

A STREAKY,SKETCHY LOOKIN' SHADOW

THAT DOESN'T HAVETHAT POWDERY SOFT SMOOTHNESS.

- HALO.

- YOU HAVE SOME REALLY HEAVYDARK, BUT I THINK

AS THIS THING LIGHTENS,IT'S A GOOD WAY TO CAPTURE

YOUR DIMENSION WITH A BIT OFTHE TEXTURE IN THE FRONT CLAWS

AND THEN HOW THE OUTSIDE OFTHE SCORPION ACTUALLY LOOKS

A LITTLE BIT BEVELED.

- ASHLEY.- NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED FROM YOU.

THIS THINGIS SMALL AND CLUTTERED.

- I HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE GETTINGJUST THE RIGHT PICTURE.

A LOT OF 'EM WERE COMING OUT,LIKE, SUPER DARK

SO I KIND OF, LIKE, FREAKED OUT.

- THIS COMPETITIONDOES EXACTLY THIS TO YOU,

AND IT TAKES YOUOUT OF YOUR ELEMENT

AND OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

I THINK YOU HAD SOME ISSUES.

- RIGHT.I KIND OF PANICKED.

INTERNALLY, I'M BEATING MYSELFUP ENOUGH

AND I DON'T NEED THEIR [bleep].

- RANDY.- IT'S A LOT OF SOFT,

FURRY LITTLE DETAILS,BUT NO REAL STRUCTURE.

THIS DEFINITELY NEEDSA FORCED OUTLINE.

- ROLAND.

- A LOT OF CLEAN LITTLE DETAILSAND A LOT OF DELIBERATE LINES.

IT'S A LOT BETTER THANI THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE.

DEALIN' WITH THE DARKER SKINIS ALWAYS TRICKY.

I FEEL LIKE YOU LEFT AN ADEQUATEAMOUNT OF HIGHLIGHTS

TO CONTRAST WITH THE BLACK.

- THANK YOU.- KING RUCK.

- YOU PUT IN A PRETTY CLEANOUTLINE ON THIS.

IT GOT A LITTLE CLUTTEREDON THE INSIDE,

SO NOW YOU GOT TO TRYTO JUST CLEAN IT UP.

- KEITH.

- THE SHADOW'SJUST A LITTLE BIT WEIRD.

THERE'S A LOT OF LEGSTHAT DON'T GIVE A SHADOW.

IT MAKES ITA LITTLE IFFY FOR ME.

- DAVID.- INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DO

THIS CRAZY PHOTOREALISTICPORTRAIT,

YOU JUST GO INAND DO THE TATTOO AS A TATTOO.

YOU DID LESS AND MADE IT MORE.

THAT'S A GREAT CHOICE.- LYDIA.

- YEAH, I WOULD SAY OVERALL,

THE DIMENSION IN THIS TATTOO,AS THE SPIDER GOES BACK,

YOU SHOULD FEEL A LITTLE MORE OF

THE DEPTHAND THE DARKNESS OF THAT,

AND IT WOULD MAKETHAT SOFTER GRAY SHADOW

YOU HAVE UNDERNEATH ITREALLY POP.

- JAY.- IT NEEDS TO BE BIGGER.

YOU BRING THE TEXTURE OF THATSCORPION ALIVE IN THE CLAWS,

BUT YOU DON'T REALLYGIVE IT DIMENSION,

AND THE LEGSARE ALL TIED TOGETHER.

IT JUST DOESN'T GIVE ITTHE LIFT FROM THE SKIN.

- SAUSAGE.

- YOU DID HIT SOME NICEDIMENSION UP IN THE TAIL.

- BUT IT IS REALLY DARK,

AND THE SHADOWKIND OF OVERPOWERS

THE IMAGE A LITTLE BIT.

I THINK THAT'S GONNA HURT YOU.- JIM.

- IT'S A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING.

THE TARANTULA COULD HAVE BEENA LITTLE DARKER

AND THE SHADOW COULD HAVE BEENA LITTLE LIGHTER

SO THEY STOOD APARTFROM EACH OTHER.

- IF YOU WOULD HAVE USEDMORE BLACK

IN THE ACTUAL BODY ITSELF,

IT WOULD HAVE MADE ITMORE READABLE.

- KYLE.NICE TO HAVE YOU

TATTOOING ON THIS COMPETITION.- THE TATTOO'S TOO LITTLE.

IF THE TATTOO WAS BIGGERAND YOU HAD A LITTLE MORE SPACE

FOR THE SCORPION ITSELFTO BE READABLE,

THAT WOULD HAVE ADDEDA LOT MORE DIMENSION

TO THAT REALLY HEAVY BLACKCAST SHADOW.

IT'S HARD TO READ WHAT THAT IS.

- I'M BACK IN HELL AGAIN.

OH, YES, IT IS A COMPETITION.IT'S PRESSURE, IT'S HIGH STAKES,

AND MAYBE I WASN'T AS PREPAREDAS I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE.

- THIS WAS THE FIRST OFFICIALFLASH CHALLENGE.

THEY WERE DOING DIMENSION.HOW'D THEY DO OVERALL?

- SOME PEOPLE DID IT JUST RIGHT

AND OTHER PEOPLE'S TOTALLYLOST IT.

- HONE IN ON A TOP THREE.

- I WOULD SAY HALO'S DEFINITELYONE OF 'EM.

SHADING WAS VERY NICE AND THEREWAS A DEFINITE SEPARATION

FROM THE SHADOWTO THE ACTUAL BUG ITSELF.

- MELISSA, HER NICE SOFT SHADOWGAVE IT JUST A LITTLE BIT

OF LIFT OFF THE SKIN,AND I THINK SHE DID A GOOD JOB.

- MATTI DID THE BEST SHADOW

WITH THAT NICE GRADATIONIN THE SHADOW.

REALLY MADE THAT DIMENSIONBELIEVABLE.

- SOMEBODY WHO'S STRUGGLEDA LOT TODAY, ASHLEY.

- THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENTOF THE DAY FOR ME.

SHE GOT RATTLED AND SHE LOOKSPRETTY UPSET ABOUT IT.

- I'LL TELL YOU WHOI'M SURPRISED WITH--KYLE.

KYLE SUPPOSEDLY IS THE GUYTHAT AMERICA WANTED BACK.

THOSE OUTLINES ON HIS TATTOOWERE SCRATCHY.

- SO IT'S CLEAR THAT WE KNOW WHOTHE BOTTOM OF THE FIELD IS,

AND I THINK WE HAVE A WINNER.

WANT TO LET 'EM KNOW?

both: LET'S DO IT.

A BUG THAT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKEIT'S CRAWLING ON YOUR CANVAS.

SOME OF YOU SUCCEEDED.MELISSA.

- THANK YOU.- MATTI.

- YOU DID A REALLY NICESHADOW ON IT.

IT SHOWED A LOT OF DIMENSIONAND IT WAS VERY CLEAN.

- THANK YOU.- HALO.

- THE DETAIL YOU PUT INTOTHE FRONT OF THE SCORPION

WITH ALL THE TEXTUREIN THE CLAWS AND THEN

THE TAIL COMING BACK AROUND,I THINK IT'S AN EFFECT

THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WENT FORTODAY BUT DIDN'T CAPTURE.

- THANK YOU.- THE JUDGES HAVE DECIDED.
