Both are wonderful in their own way  - the first is one of the most "realistic" paint jobs I've ever seen on human(oid)s, and the hippies are enchanting in their own way, especially under the hypnotic spell of a giant snail!

Well done both!

Indeed, its been a weird seesaw of a match.
I wouldn't concede just yet if I were you- there's been plenty of times where you were ahead of me :)

A tie would be fair- I think we've each bested the other in previous LPLs :)

Guy, I feel for you. THE STRESS!!! ;)
That's two horribly close matches you've had now, and you just got pipped at the post with the last one.
I do hope you get a well-deserved draw this round. They're both excellent entries in different ways, and I couldn't slide a fag paper between them in terms of quality and execution

An outstanding contest between two top competitors.  A total draw and a justified result as no-one deserved to lose this one.

I'm content with a draw :)

Nice work Blackwolf! I think our LPL match record is officially even now ;)

Good luck next round!
