Markusthebarbarian vs Smokenmirrors
Attacker : Markusthebarbarian
Defender : Smokenmirrors
deadline thursday 1am GMT +2
player 1 (attacker):tears through the battlefield with a battle axe
A- you cleave your oponent in 2 clean halves, your savage face roaring in bloodlust
B- you swing your massive axe through the air over your head, your oponent turns to run away
player 2 (defender) :you have a realisation
A - your aura changes , you realise the way of the world, you are enlightened on the battlefield and no harm can possibly befall you.
B - you decide to fight fire with fire, your eyes tighten, your skin becomes like stone, you rush at your oponent like the wind.

Well I like the movement man, I hope you're working more on it.
I've choosen to do
B- you swing your massive axe through the air over your head, your oponent turns to run away.
(We don't see you in the picture, because you already fled :D)
p.s. Maybe I'll do some little more details, but I don't know in case I won't, I put it.

Smoke--I like the graphic quality and the composition the varying styles with in the render are rather distracting though
Markus the barbarian--Your composition is rather unbalanced and although your render is sweet, the foreshortening of your characters left arm is rather problematic
>smoken's piece is too choatic on the eyes, the clashing rendering styles, clashing saturations and lack of controlling the viewers focus makes the hurts the piece. I would have like to have seen markus' scene set up better to show the fleeing, but it's rendered well enough to take the prize

well done Markus,
you got me fair and square! looks like after I get my head sewn back on I got to step up my game! Good duel! we'll see about the collaboration action later, but for now I have to get my watch tower piece underway....
