    2nd Place:
    - OTR.840 12 markers set
    - We Ride By Train #2 DVD
    - $25 Bombing Science gift certificate

    3rd Place:
    - We Ride By Train #2 DVD
    - $25 Bombing Science gift certificate


    And now, the rules of the battle:

    - Deadline: July 27th 2009
    - Word to sketch: PERSO
    - Can be any color, but must include a character.
    - Medium: Pencils, Pen, Markers (no computer...)

    Send your sketch at the address below before the deadline:
    flixs@bombingscience.com

    Important: rename the image file with your artist name (example: yourname.jpg)

    The judge of this battle will announce the winners a few days after the deadline. All the sketches that will be submitted to us will also be posted online.

    Good luck!

    Default The winners!

    1st Place: Cile


    This piece won because it was strong in all elements. The letters were nice, the background was simple yet colorful, and the character was original. The composition felt even, and overall, it is enjoyable to look at. I am not a fan of "floating letters". Maybe next time, try to incorporate the letters into the background a bit more... add fins and make it into a fish, or octopus legs, or add windows and make it a submarine. Also, when you color the background, use a larger pen. It won't take as long, and you won't be able to see all the pen strokes as much.

    2nd Place: Joze


    I struggled between this piece and the third place winner because i wasn't feeling the "s" and the "r" in this one. Letters, when pulled apart from the rest of a letter scheme, should be able to stand on it's own. However, I really liked the character and the concept. The roboctopus had "character". Work on your letters, and you could do well in "the game".

    3rd Place:Fresh one


    This piece was also pleasing overall to look at. The letters were a little all over the place, and it took me forever to find the upside down "r"... this artist obviously has skill. All forms of art are very subjective. I struggled between who would get second or third.

    Thanks to all who entered. Judging was really difficult. Some of my favorites did not make it.

    yeah I will also haveto say that im not a big fan of 2 or 3 place really, just because There seemd to be a bunch of other ones that were way more sick but didnt make the cut sumhow????..... But it is the judges choice and I respect that, there was alot of sick pieces and it would have been a real hard choice for me to make if I was in his shoes.

    I liked holk's alot and zomb's letters. Not sure about 2nd and 3rd place, But everyone has their own opinions. in the end only the judge's opinion counts. mine was number 40/69. didnt have much time..

    Awww shit. Thanks Thc at least someone was feelin' my shit, I'm trying to step up my game lately so it def means something to hear a compliment.

    Once again I didn't even make it into the top 13 entries but hey, I noticed that neither did Globe.

    There were some absolutely deadly entries that I think were more worthy of the 2nd place, but that character is pretty fresh.

    I agree with 3rd place, I love those letters and I love the way they stacked them and flipped the R (which is one of the illest R's I've seen btw).

    very confusing.. i mean why would somebody who does artwork like this: http://skateboarding.transworld.net/...katchbook7.jpg choose an entry like that as the winner?
