And another duel against this mr. X has come to a end.
Sorry for Mr. X but he lost this one this time, but it was a strong fight.
I had some problem of choose the best, because they where both excellent.
And now the winner of this duel:
Congratulations to Dalibor (Kekso), well done!
Thanks for dueling, and the voters as well.

Another cool duel! Think I've used this figure in an old competition entry a long time ago. :-D Both great entries. And it was hard to chose, but in the end Dali got my vote.

Tough duel, nice to follow, I loved the final winning sprint of Dalibor. Great choice of figure.
Congrats as usual to both contenders! Two different painting styles. Dear Dali, you have a fun! Those highlights made the difference for me. I see something like a touch of impressionism. Monet, maybe? :mrgreen:

Great win by Kekso this time. I liked the figure of Mr. X better, but Dali's flag was the best. Perhaps that carried the day.

congrats to both because this was a great duel! Both are so nice painted that it was a hard choice to give one vote! ;-) :thumbup:

One remark. In this duel it was clear to me which entry was from Mr X and which one wasn't. A suggestion to Mr X, let the cork dissepear! ;-)

I am still guessing who is Mr.X. But he is a though painter. Even if my vote goes to Croatia! Very good paintjob, Dalibor.

The lead swings throughout the contest made this a really interesting duel. And I thought the two entries were very well matched in high quality painting with just a bit of difference in style.

My personal preference is towards lighter shading so my vote went to Mr. X but it was not an easy choice and I knew that Dali's excellent figure would be popular.

Congratulations Dali on a very worthy win against a very worthy opponent. Great duel!

Thank you all who voted in this duel (no matter for which entry). And big thanks to Mr.X for dueling. At start I was sure I will loose. I'm not sure why I got so many votes lately. I told Remco at the beginning that I don't care if I win or loose as long as I have fun dueling... and I had ;-)
So please, join duels, invite people to duels and vote in duels :thumbup:
