And another duel is over, another loss for Mr. X
Who was to strong for him...
The answer is Pedro (Escobar)
I tought two equal entries, but it seems that I was wrong here.
Congratz to Pedro, and hey Mr. X another chance next month!

It was a cool duel! I think Mr X lost because the a litle blurry pics. Two very good entries! And I had real trouble deciding who to vote for!

I think the same as Susofrick, with better photos maybe Mr.X could have obtained more votes.
Thanks to Mr.X for the duel and to all the voters!

I did vote for the first entry, not knowing who it could be from. It was Pedro! Congrats on your win. I did not care for the pale skin tones on the face and the hands--I think this guy has spent a lot of time out of doors and his skin should look ruddy, not pale. But the details on the helmet and the horse and the armor and the garments were extremely well done and precise. Those swayed my decision, which was difficult because both entries were of top quality.

Mr. X's entry was also exceptionally fine. I really liked it a great deal. I did not penalize Mr. X for the blurry photos--instead I tried to imagine what the figure would have looked like if the picture were crisp and clear. The pink armor on the horse and the rider are just so well realized. I liked his darker skin tones as well. Probably 9 out of 10 duels this Chinese rider is the winner. And a funny title, too!

Great work and keep the duels coming.

For me the pictures did it! The ones from Mr X weren't sharp enough! Congrats Pedro for the win! :thumbup:
