And another duel won by mr. X.
He was up against our Swedish friend Gunnar (Susofrick)
Both did a job well done, a bit a shame only 22 others did give there vote.
Thanks for dueling, it was a nice one gentleman.

Is it possible to vote twice?
I was one of the last to vote, but after I was sure I had voted before.
I guess it`s an age thing! ;-)
Congratulations MrX,on a fine win.
Gunnar, sob! sob! Sad to say i voted for the other masked man. :eh:
However both figures I like tremendously. :thumbup: :thumbup:
I knew in my heart Gunnar, would be here with his colours. Bravo! :-D BB

It doesn't look like an easy figure to paint, at all. All those buttons, and the helmet!
But you both did a great job. Congrats!
And I voted for the winner :mrgreen:

I really liked your entry because it tells a story. Very clever painting work to depict the man looking down at his missing button. Your photograph is also well centered, focused and lit.

Mr. X had a bit more detail on the cap, so that could explain why the second entry got a few more votes.
