    I finished mine too late to get it in. Dope pieces all around. I'm voting for theillfunkfreaka, my second would be Odd_Otto. Props to Zoup for maintaining this. Outstanding to all. Get up and stay safe.

    Pesk - why don’t you join in these, I’ve seen some of your stuff your decent, you should get in there

    yeh - looks most ready to paint out of all of them, like how you value letter style over add ons and what not. I’d probably us a bottom bar of the K and extend that right as my horizontal bar vs the E. Right bar of M looks too long, I see you wanted that to go below the horizontal bar of the e then have it loop back up

    Matt - just keep at it, bottom half of the letters are to longated but your close to a break through

    watch - keep at it, maybe look to add some curve bars in there to compliment the hard lines and angles, close to a break through as well

    Ill - your letters have style for sure but each letter is like it was drawn in its own then forced to be next to each other. Like the S going to far into the K, I did the same thing with my I. Look for ways to work your letters together. Perhaps add a low horizontal bar shooting off the bottom of your K to match the low horizontal bar you have off the bottom of your M. Repeat the same moves = consistency = flow. Also maybe borrow from Odd s technique of putting some bars/plates whatever behind your letter bars to take up some of all that negative space.

    odd - digging it. Love that K. Only thing I noticed was to many blocks/plates add in up top that aren’t connected to anything. I do random bigger plates like that behind my letters to give them a nice background as well. Nice little trick/tip to use

    Apologies for the criticism, I’m certainly in no position to give unsolicited criticism but a couple of you are real close to putting it all together.

    odd gets my vote, yeh second. I’d vote satire every battle so I feel bad for sat that he has the best entry but not my vote but I imagine he gets it.

    Classic for me on this but everyone went big, happily be next to any of these on a wall.

    Appreciate your work Zoup in keeping these battles running. After not being on BS for around 16 years I came back to look for motivation to sketch new things during the current lockdown.

    Look forward to the next word

    As to why I chose Skema instead of the other variations - I knew a guy who wrote Skema a long time ago so it seemed the obvious word to me.

    Classic votes:

    @zoup votes:

    I was wrong. Not a tie. Zoup got more votes.

    Am I wrong? Maybe I missed something. Claim it homie. You earned it.
