    The battle to gain control of the CAP Art Polls has come to a stalemate, and neither side can gain the upper hand enough to turn the tide of the battle. Both the forces of KoA and the forces of Yilx are mixed up within the halls of the CAP Subforum, with small skirmishes breaking out constantly. The Daitenshi KoA leads the forces of KoA, who currently control most of the upper floors of the Subforum. He issues his orders from the 8th floor. The Tenma Yilx leads the forces of Yilx, and they currently control most of the lower floors of the Subforum; Yilx himself resides in the 8th basement. As long as both of them live, this battle will never end...

    The number 2... a very important number for this CAP's artwork.

    2 contestants remain.

    For much of the last poll, only 2 votes between them.

    KoA won DPP's CAP 2. Yilx won BW's CAP 2.

    Both looking for their 2nd victory.

    And, as we all know, CAP 4 = 2 x 2, 2 + 2, and (2)^2. Marvellous.

    Good luck to both of you.

    While Yilx has good artwork, the complexity of it will bother spriters. That, as well as recurring eye motifs, seems, well, reminiscent of a certain other CAP design. KoA's design, while being a bit floaty, still keeps simplicity and uniqueness.

    I've grown to like Yilx's design, but I feel KoA's is better in terms of concept. A real close one.

    Congrats to both artists, you both made awesome designs!

    It's nice to see KoA back to top form with his Seraphim design. KoA is one of the all-time greats in CAP art, and he has been an art and spriting standard-bearer for the project consistently ever since the very first CAP project with Syclant almost 5 years ago. Yilx is certainly a CAP art all-star too, so we have two heavyweights duking it out here. I'm going with KoA with my vote, but either one will represent the project well!

    I'd be quite happy with either one, though.

    I would be happy to see either design win, but yeah. I always liked KoA's design. May the best design win.

    Think it mixes both the Bug and the Psychic elements better than Yilx's.
