Foo.
That final panel was hilarious, same goes for the flame on. I like your interior artwork and inking. Some of those squences were pretty dynamic. I like effect you used for those tattoos to pop out!\\.

Sol.
I like the setting you used, it reminds me of a samurai showdown.
although i saw the thumb i didn\'t see that coloured page coming and it was rockin! Nice choreography of the fight too. A lil hard to follow here and then, but maybe that\'s cuz i was checking out the colouring.

Keep kicking ass!

fo sho Rax. infact i was hoping that we could do another meeting of these two characters with either outcome and go from there. . .i think these two have a lot of chemistry oddly enough. . the clash just enough to make for a good match up.

we gotta give em another one and do it up. .whoop whoop. . anywayz later bro.

Hey guys thanks for all the crits and comments. Ofcourse I read them all and take them all into consideration. I\'m glad most of you liked the story. It wasnt neccessarily meant to be so serious but I guess as I wrote it thats how it developed. Well atleast for this particular opponent. I\'ll admit, I didn\'t spend as much time on this as I wish I could\'ve, but thats why Im here. To learn new things, managing my time included.

Thanks again Foo for accepting my challenge (since I was the one that originally challenged you). Maybe we can bout again in the future with different fighters. Tallyho!

This was a good match up, and honestly I\'m surprised with the outcome!!  Its gonna be close, but I was actually expecting to vote for Foo.  

Foo - your art is killer, this you know, but so far your writing is rather unimpressive.  Pacing is pretty good, effects are a great addition, but the dialogue was pretty ppphtttt.  

Sol - though your art isn\'t quite up to Foo\'s (anatomy in particular), I liked your story better.  The fourth page was a great layout idea, something I haven\'t seen here before really, and for that I graded you a little higher.  (And p.s. I of course was so tickled by the Kali cameo!!  I\'ll have to see about bringing Sol into her life, apparently!!  *laughs*)  

Great job, you two!!

woah, i really enjoyed both comics. they were both really great reads.

foo - man, you line work....  D8    it\'s so awesome. really loved the details and poses. most stuff has already been said, so i\'ll leave it at that. i can\'t wait to see another fight from you in the future!  ;3

rax - ahhhh, some of those expressions really cracked me up  XD
i like the story in yours, and some of the humor.

quality wise, this fight goes to foo, but entertainment goes to rax.

Hey Gents, Foo and Rax, quite the entertaining bout.

Foo, your characters are tight and cleanly drawn, but Id like to see a bit more in the way of backgrounds.

Rax, Your backgrounds were the touch that tipped the story off for me, but at times your character details were inconsistant.

Consitancey is the key for both you guys I think, IE: the flame work on your pages Foo and the shading on the splash for you Rax. It\'d be awsome to see the attention you paid those pages and paneles  pulled throughout  the rest of the work. Otherwise they stand out, and the other pages drop away instead of belonging to the entire story.

Over all though, I liked your pages very much.

Your various referrences were amuzing and entertianing.
Keep it up,

I look forward to facing off against you guys soon.

I loved  both of these very much. I especially enjoyed Rax\'s emotion filled faces.
Foo, you\'re art was simply amazing.
I honestly can\'t choose a favorite, they were both so good.

I expect another battle sometime later.

was a good battle, and just to be clear i dont think he used any of wya\'s poses, he mererly laid out a long fight with a similar technique. I gave a slight edge to foo, his art was a little more entertaining to me, and the over all book was slightly more entertaining.

I think pretty much everything\'s been said already, so I\'ll keep it brief…

Rax> Dude, if you would\'ve done more coloring/shading, like as in your intro pages, you would\'ve had this in the bag! Right now, though, FoO has the edge on you as far as line art goes.

FoO> Heheh, funny jokes there, but er… kinda corny, no? :p  Dialog- and story-wise, I think you could learn something from Rax\'s battle.

Overall, FoO had the better quality, but in the end, my vote goes to Sol for creativity and entertainment. Pretty close match, though. Excellent job, both of you! Can\'t wait to see more. :)

Okay, THAT was a great fight.

Rax- ...I really don\'t know what to say beyond KICK FUCKING ASS.  That was a great entry from you, and Sol is one of my favorite Void characters at this point.  The fight was knock-down, drag-out, solid American-style choreography with quite a few intelligently-used moves (if that was intentional, kudos to you).

Foo- Eating your brains with an ice-cream scooper.  Beautiful inks and overall look, but there were times I found your panel-to-panel to come off as a little odd, like the large curved panel in page 3, or--hey wait a second, Mooo has similar powers to FooRay\'s!  Back to the drawing board I go, but again, great job from both of you.

Foo gets a slightly higher quality vote, both artists had about even creativity, but Rax dominated with the Entertainment vote.

Both were nicely drawn although some of the fighting panels on Rax\'s side were too stiff and awkward.

I enjoyed them both. I thought Rax\'s battle was a little more interesting even though the dialog seemed stilted and it felt like you weren\'t really comfortable with the formal language you were using.

I gave this one to Rax by a little.

Good fight on both sides guys.  Glad no defaults reared their greasy heads.  I gave the slight nod to Sol in Quality, other two were the same.  The use of the lose pose cracked me up.  Enjoyed the Wya inspired fight page, Rax.  Quality fight fellas.

I feel like i\'ve waited years for this battle.  Rax, I gotta tell ya I was a Sol fangirl the moment I saw him submitted as a fighter.  I ABSOLUTELY love his character.  

Alrighty, I\'m having a really hard time grading both these battles because I was so impressed with both of them on all levels.  I like that both are black and white (with the exception of the Wya page of course... God, I loved that.), both have great timing and both have strong stories and personality.  I was thoroughly entertained by both.  

Foo, the Matrix joke tickled me.  Thank you for that.  
And Rax, Ryan is one of my favorite artists ever.  Seeing his inspiration in your comic made me smile.  I noticed it there even before we got to the giant splash page.  

Hmmm, well... I honestly have no crits to give you that are really worth mentioning as i\'m sure others are thinkin the same as me.  I really liked both of these entries.  Good luck to you both!

Hello, you two. Hey, how bout you give me some of that talent you all are hording. I still have some things to say, ya\'ll.

Rax- I love your wordcraft. I didn\'t think I was going to. I mean, so many words. . .but when you read them they are quite good. You have a very tight art style though it\'s not my personal favorite. The page wit all the combat, page four is perfect. I love this story telling style and it really makes me wanna fight you.

But I think the Baglady would be fast friends with Sol. I enjoyed this piece, I can\'t wait for more. Good luck in the future.

FoO- This one went to you buddy. Rax is great at what he does and so are you. The quality is real close. But I think your line wieghts are better as are your use of blacks. I love this character and have an equal desire to fight him. I\'m sure the BagLady would fight him though.

Both- I think you both need to fight again in the future. You have the beginings of two great stories in here and I want more. You have both come out of the gate stomping and kicking ass. You both capture a fight in great detail and have done it in very diffferant ways to a very similar story. Well done fellas, can\'t wait to see more.

Haha what a great entry Foo. I got a chuckle out of that last panel. Pretty good representation of Sol, I\'m impressed.
I left the rest of battle uncolored to leave it a bit more even. I love your line art man. Win or lose I had a lot of fun with this one.
P.S. Please dismiss the \"On the bottom of the page comment\" on Sol\'s book. It was meant as a script note and I accidentally copied and pasted it in with the rest of the text.

Wow, not much to say here~ I really enjoyed both battles. You each have your own unique styles and you seemed to get eachother\'s characters down very well. Only qualm I had was that I got a little bored reading through all of that clustered dialogue in Sol\'s battle- but it wasn\'t too bad. :)

Great job both of you!

Good to see no defaults on such an awesome battle; not gonna enter my votes yet as I am still uncertain on which battle I prefered and I need to take a closer look at them; However Rax his battle page was totally awesome, and quite inspiring; very good job on that!

The characters appeared to be quite in-character in both battles, and references etcetera were in place, so I can say I really enjoyed this battle to both ends.

I feel like I\'m lucking out... getting to watch Foo fight someone else before I try my hand at him. But then again maybe I should challenge someone else before taking on THE MASTA. You\'ll both be great, I can\'t wait to see the outcome! <3
