    The Winners!

    Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. I can't tell you how many times I've looked through all of the entries. It was really tough. I had to get Hasl [Serye Design] to help out.

    1st Place: Mewt
    Brisk's comment: We picked this one due to the good composition, legible style with flavor and it seemed like a real paintable style. The characters helped a little. Maybe putting an arrow on the right might help with balance and maybe some subtle gloss lines or highlights. And trap it all in with a pop color too. Congrats

    2nd Place: Sori420
    Brisk's comment: We both liked this style. It had nice letters, both lines and seemed like a real paintable style as well. Letters fit like a puzzle, thats good. Silver or color it would look good. I would do color though. The 'A' needs to be opened up a little bit and the handstyles need to be sharped, but over all its clean. Congrats

    3rd Place: Sobe

    Brisk's comment: This sketch is a really good wildstyle. The 'n' gets lost a little bit but over all its dope. Colors are cool too and it looks like there was some time put in it. If the 3D popped with a lighter green, it would really set it off. I know it's kinda hard on paper. Nice though... Congrats.

    Honorable Mention:

    A sketch is very important and I've met
    really good Writerz that always use a sketch. Some don't, but most of them
    do. Just remember that painting is a whole different thing...

    IMO these battles are judged by what the style the Writer likes...its obvious that say a head like Revok would choose a peice with teeth init ... and a head like Can2 would choose a peice with a poppy fill ... IMO.

    Like the last battle i think it was...i was in the top 6 wasnt i ? ... that battle was being judged by a Euro head ... you get me ?

    Id really like to know if anyone out of the US actually wins , do they get there prize shipped to them ? .. id really like for Newz himself to answer ..
