Welcome to the May sketch battle! This battle will be judged by Berst GBAK TMD from New Zealand: "The winner should be able to tick these boxes; strong letters, nice colours, good concept, nice composition and an ability to do something new. We all know that everybody can slap a piece on a bit of paper and colour it in so doing something new is up to your interpretation. You're the artist so be creative. Drawing imagery as well as the given word will be an advantage but you will still be scored according to the categories above. Also, an added bonus for people that don't just copy characters and have the ability to create their own if they do include some." Prizes 1st Place: 1 Ironlak Diamond Pack + 2 Ironlak Strikers Sets + Ironlak Sketchbook 2nd Place: Ironlak Strikers Set + Ironlak Sketchbook 3rd Place: 1000 Forum Credits Rules Word to Sketch: "SERIOS" Free reign on colours and concept is open to any interpretation.
