Artist Sketch Vote #1

The first sketches are in! This week you'll be choosing your favorite sketch for Lord of the Pit. The artist's sketch that gets the most votes will be developed into the final piece for Tenth Edition's version of Lord of the Pit. For this one, you'll be choosing between Mike Sutfin and Dave Allsop. As a new twist, we're not going to tell you which artist illustrated which sketch for Selecting Tenth Edition, so you'll have to go strictly by which sketch you prefer.
