I challenge you to a Steel Cage Match!

Let's get some practice in here before the Battle Royale.

Plus, there's always hungry cage onlookers waiting for another battle to watch.

I'd be happy to accept and I'll go first! And I need that practice; let's hope my introduction to the cage isn't too painful .

Eh, don't worry about the pain. You'll get used to it. Goodness knows I have ... see the blood drop under my username? You know the saying, "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger". Good luck! I look forward to seeing your first blow.

Thanks for the welcomes everyone!


Now I know why people say you'll spend all day on cage matches if you are in one.  This is taking a lot longer than I thought it would . I've already learned a few photoshop things though so it's worth it to me.


I can't wait till I win a match too (haha...) so I get some free credits for next time, these are adding up.

You should get a "steel cage" version option for downloads (xsmall only I think) for free. I think the limit is 5 per blow. Is it not showing up for you?

You only get free images once you have won a judged battle, and you don't get any for the BR!

I've finally stopped messing with it and have decided to just post it.  I went through like three different ideas after trying something out and messing it up or not finding what I need, so hopefully this is the best of the three.  Hopefully the layers are acceptable, I tend to be a bit sloppy with them.

Yeah, lots of goodies to work with. I've got a vague idea of where to take this. Now I've got to search for the right images.
