Awesome, I really like this theme. I have an idea related to this that I've been wanting to make for a while.

Also everyone keep talking on the forums! It'll get a bit lonely if it's just me and Emrox here alone.

You know... i don't think there are any ladies at this point.... just saying.

ANYWAYS. Good luck to you two. I predicted (more like hoped) it would be between you guys. You guys both have very distinct styles, so I am very curious as to who the champ will be.


Do you think your attractive? Go to my youtube channel to find out (or not).

Although it's a tough choice, I'm going to have to agree with you. The winner certainly has this in the bag.

Am I the only one who feels the loser really's got a shot at this? I think the loser has his game down to an art, hes unbeatable, in my opinion.

Hey just to spice it up like we did in intermediate round - why don't you guys post some early sketches pictures (that don't reveal much spoilers) ?
