Hello Professor!
 :mrgreen:

Did my post reach you and was it the right size?
I think I screwed up captionwise...or can you copy it from my e-mail?

Best regards the very new newbie  :)

OK...I'm really happy to tell you that we have 23 very nice entries. Thanks to you all!!! Unfortunately one of participants (Oisin) forgot to attach his pic. I will wait with starting one of the matches until Oisin will send me his team. The opponent of Oisin will be Grimm. All the other votes will start in the next hours.

Because we didnt manage to get an even number of participants my team will wait until the next monday :)

If I may make a suggestion for the second round? It might be better not to tell the painters' names to prevent "sympathy votes". I found myself looking at the names of the painters first, and only then at the pictures. This could distort the results a bit.

I don't think that some "sympathy votes" would be a serious problem.  Actually I'm sure that you can recognise most of the painters without their name, each of us got an unique painting style to paint, make bases/photos etc. So it's not really anonymous, see the experiences of Steve Dean Forum competition.

I agree with Prof. I find it more of a problem pitching one gengre against the other i.e. Wierd War against Cowboys. ANd the backdrop makes a huge difference. But what the hell, the purpose is to get people to post their work, no?
