A fantastic end, between these 2 duelers.
With just 1 vote more this duel is won by Mr. X
He was up against Strolch (Ralf)
A big compliment to both, and this is the first duel won by Mr. X 2019!

Thanks for all the voters, Ralf and Mr.X

Fantastic duel with a marvellous figure from Zvezda. I would like to congrat both, but my vote went to Mr X. :thumbup:

Mr X made a mistake here. As far I remember, and I saw the movie to, without subtitles ( ;-) Paul), Michiel never wore the orange colors. Maybe our Dutch friends can clear this out? :eh:

Fantastic duel by both and what a close result! I loved the name, colors, photograph, and stripes and metal effects of entry number one. I wish Ralph would have shown us the face a bit better. And the area on the sword hand that is guard v. glove was unclear.

I did vote for Mr. X, however. Having him named after an historical figure was cool. And I preferred his work on the sword hand, hat, gloves, boots, and doublet.
I had to study these entries for a long time to decide because it was that near a thing.

Great duel indeed. I liked a lot the figure chosen and more how Mr. X rendered it; there was too much of brown in Ralf's entry. But that it is - of course - personal taste. Both figures were greatly painted. Congrats to both. Congrats to Mr. X for his winning: compared to his previous entries I see a greater deal with shadowing and highlighting, a finer brushwork. Well done!
