Nice work the both of you, however there can only be one. Ekotek brought more to table this time and gets my vote.
These are both crazy good/hilarious! Congrats both of you on making it to the finals.
Ridge I like your clean lines and the amount of death blows going on here is great. Also like the clever use of the bones acting like a needle/wire cutter - same type of great creativity you've had going throughout the tourney. I think your 'kill' is superior.
Ekotek its a shame you couldn't get a sequential in here as I've really enjoyed the last couple you did up. Yours seems to be the more complete piece w/background and all the characters watching this final fight.
I can't vote yet, and honestly would have such a hard time deciding... but if I had to pick one I'd have to go with Ekotek.
The problem I had with all the former brawlers watching in the background in ekotek's piece is that, in every round, these guys were killed off...in various brutal ways. They shouldn't be there, so it annoyed me to see them in ekotek's piece.
From a technical standpoint, Ridge turns in virtually perfect work in every round. This one is no different. I try and find things wrong or, at the very least, bothersome, but I can't come up with anything.
This is a great final battle and, while I take a few points off for Ridge's lack of a background, he still takes this one.
Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.
These are amazing...very clean work Ridge but could use a background and Eko i luv the baseball swing and the bones on the ground and of course all the past contenders is cool...this is a close one but Eko made his pop a bit more!
These are both nicely done - congrats to both of you for making it to the final round! I'm gonna have to vote Eko here. Ridge showed up with a strong piece and a good idea, but Eko's just had that extra little bit that swayed me. I like Bonaparte's skull in the foreground, and the other brawlers in back. Wreckingball's face sells it, too.
Thanks everyone for the comments! - Ridge love your piece there!! - I like that you have Bonaparte forming construction-site type instruments of death
Pop - the ensemble was more of a tribute to the fallen Thunderbrawlers than anything...wasn't trying to follow continuity or anything like that with this piece....
This is looking to be a close battle...a fitting close to a classic contest!
