Once more a mindblowing winner-entry. That is really art for me.

The other entries are worthy as well. Another real Dürrschmidt and the ninja from Escobar makes me curious what other jobs he has already done. And of course I really like "With the will of Zeus" I have seen it already in real life. It is really perfect match for a brush!

Finally: Thanks to you, Peter, for organising another Painting comp. It was a pleasure to vote!

Usually each painting competition has one or two very strong entries, and the eventually winner is pretty obvious at the word "go." Not so this one. In my opinion, the top four entries are all extremely strong. I agree that "It is Finished" deserved to win. What a composition!

It was my first ever painting competition, and what a pleasure to be able to face off against Mr. T. Dürrschmidt himself! I have admired his legendary painting, modeling and photography skills for years, but I never thought I would be able to match up with him on this forum. Of course he beat me easily, but it lessens the honor not one bit.

Thanks also to Peter for organizing this duel, and to all who entered.

I bow humbly before Ben's majestic entry. He got my vote, always. So perfect, in every details. Thanks for showing where it is possible to get; though it may only be utopia for me, yet a great push to improve.
Thanks very much also to those who voted for my entry. I am really surprised I got to 10! I expected a debacle against "It is finished".
Thanks to all contenders: great and funny entries that make the competitiong very entertaining.
Thanks to Peter for organizing it!!

Congratulations to Ben90, a wonderful piece of painting and modeling. Congratulations also to Mr. Andrea, it was a difficult choce between these two. And a draw for the Bronze brush between two excellent entries, amazing!

All four of these were beautifully painted but I was also very impressed by the composition. All of the elements have come together to make really harmonious finished scenes.

Many thanks to Peter for organising a great competition, and thanks and congratulations to the other contestants for their superb entries. A great competition with some very tight contests, and lots of fun. :-D
