sedat said...

Hey Ale,

Sedat

jtruong008 said...

They're both great, but this one's for Ale!

Tempest said...

Marcus has some strong points... but the lack of variety in his mediums gives Ale the win here.

The addition of Apoc was a nice touch...
Good job... I look forward to the next competition!

Vince said...

I'll go with ale !It's a good one !

kego said...

I think Ale gets this one. The intro. of a villain for volvie's wrath is the decisize element for me. Oh and it looks good too.

Johnny said...

It's not easy to decide, but I'm voting for Ale Garza, yesyesyo.

Ps. In polish "ale" means "but", by the way. Hahaha.

adam a said...

colossus is great! characters fill up the page nicely.

kampilanWil said...

Now this is the "fastball special" I remember back in the day! Sorry Marcus but I'm going with Ale on this one. Reminds me of when John Byrne and JRJR were on the book. And, I never really like the whole "curved" claw look that some artists did. Even if no enemy was present it still captured the classic manuever for me.

corbin Jones said...

my vote goes to ale

raph said...

i'm gonna vote for ale. i like marcus' colossus better (something about his left arm in ale's looks strange), but ale's has a lot more energy and his wolverine is great!

cadam said...

Go Ale, king of the closeup, foreground figure. Gelatomettista stick together.

crazyfeetmcgee said...

Ale went above and beyond with the addition of the big A. Marcus has a real clean look but when I think fastball special I think down and dirty and ale adds that gruff and I really like the detail he was able to get down on the characters overall awesome job my vote is for ale.

daveau82 said...

Kudos Ale.

Tanis of Evermore said...

I love this .. great piece

reemonemo said...

KelleyhasAss said...

Frikkin awesome..Has my vote baby!

Kyle said...

Both are awesome, but I gotta give ale his props.

okra said...

It was very hard to choose, but I like the boldness of the lines on this one. Man, seeing these great pieces of art makes me want to work that much harder on my own.

Inkblotz said...

My vote is for Ale.

Marcus's was nice but Ale is just too rocking to vote against.

GTJDorris said...

Ale, though these battles seem to be getting much and much closer not to mention the level of work seems to be getting higher on an exponential level. Bravo to both competitors, and thank you so much for keeping us entertained!

missleman said...

Ale gets mine for 3 reasons.

1. Foreground, 2. Middle-ground, and 3. Background.

Good work even with some anatomy issues with wolverines arm, forgivable for a superior composition.

Mike said...

Gotta go with Garza...Marcus's is just too plain.

spinkick said...

full of raw energy, I love it.

Jesse Chin said...

Voting for Garza

Yano said...

This was a really tough decision - Marcus did a kick ass job - he has some really great movement and has some great facial expressions, but I just love Ale's detail and how the scene is set up. This one was really close!

General Chang said...

Ale for the Win!

The angle, the mask, the shoulders, The motion, the detail in the skin/hair, establishing a ground, drawing the complete figures.

corenthal j walker said...

MORE DYNAMIC!

WIN!

Gabe_Eltaeb said...

Ale is the winnah!

Mr Pid said...

iron chef forever!

dustin said...

i normally wouldnt vote cause i really dont really like Ale as a person, but i must say, this piece really REALLY kicks some ass. It's a splash page that actually tells a bit of a story. really great work man.

Q7d2 said...

Evil faces all around yet cudely they seem mad Dustin is leg.

dimebagdiggler said...

Ale get's my vote. The other one looks too much like fan art.

Diggle that piggle.

hope you like it said...

Trinity33xx101 said...

5deadguys said...

The little splashes of ink and white perfectly placed!

James Raiz said...

BallsDeep2008 said...

Great challenge and showing by both contestants. I knight you both worthy of praise.

There can be only one true victor. Today Ale reigns supreme.

aboutyou85 said...

Marcus has some nice faces but I like the variety of mediums Ale used. His character sizes and placements were also more interesting (imo).

The addition of Apoc was cool and I think overall this piece feels more complete. It's like a cover image or splash page.

Good job to both of you though.

Jack Smith said...

ale.

just looks more interesting/scary/exciting.

Dan-El said...

You get my vote too Ale - great work to both artists

N said...

djshokka said...

Dave Cummings said...

Definitely Ale's pic I am going for. It has more energy.

~Dave

bat2supe said...

Ale you deserve it.
The 2 pieces are great but your one is a lil'bit more detailled & we can see Apocalipse: AWESOME.

Damn!!! after a lack of posts, i missed a day & find a Iron Chief Tournament, a battle & a winner.
Good luck for the rest of the battles.

john said...

george moorer said...

nice kicka$$ sketch ale! worthy competition from marcus, but including Apocalypse and just the overall ***pop*** in your sketch, wins my vote!

Danger said...

Mike mine Alé

Jon Tsuei said...

Way to turn it out Ale, you got my vote!

Fochod said...

My vote goes to Alé.
Both drawings are great, but Alé gave it a little extra edge.

implodingbrain said...

Voting for Alé.

.just.a.ghost. said...

I like the darker, thicker lines... and the splattered ink is a nice touch as well!

davefinch said...

I think Ale's picture looks awesome. I think I especially like the colossus. (er, so I'm voting for this one....I hope I'm not missing an actual place to vote and typing it into the wrong area or something)

C.Michelle said...

I would have to say Ale! One, his art looks way better to me...and two, hes a great kisser..haahaa

Jack of All Tradepaperbacks said...

i like penguins!

kewlio said...

marcus' work is cleaner, but there's something raw about wolvy rippin on whoever, nice work

stchang said...

I looked through both artworks yesterday. Ale's piece's got the energy and the swipe to back it up.

(Thumbs up to Ale)

Weezul said...

Go, Ale, Go!

Wyman said...

Ale's piece rocks!!! Way to go!

mechadude said...

Ale wins by a claw!

meek? said...

OMG! The Almighty James Raiz just posted! 8o How dope... I'd love to see him vs. Carlos D'Anda someday. :D

Anyway... my vote goes to Ale. Maybe if Marcus had an extra 10-15 minutes to add in a bit more detail and tone, it'd be the other way around, but Ale gets the vote as it stands.

Peace...

Great work to the both of ya's!

Batgirls--itch said...

ARTISTIC MERRIT!!!!!!

Colin said...

Hip hip: ALÈ!

Great Work!

Choisez said...

Batter up! Alé's Wolverine & Colossus have the sweet science down.

-Eddy

curious_moi said...

Bravo to you both. Tough call. I like the simplicity of Marcus's, but my vote goes to Ale as I like the dark lines that make the characters more bold and eye catching. The border adds to the drawing as well. There are 3 characters and it looks more like it's reveiling a story versus Marcus where it looks more like a title page. Great job guys!
