I am relieved that the Judges chose to send Tess home this week. Astounded by her choice of final words in touting gaining in confidence through the show after several consecutive weeks of emotion break downs. I am confused by the Judges being seemingly enamored by the work of Tyler & Rashaad, whose piece seemed a bit lopsided and rough in the paint work. Though they did have some interesting concepts in their piece, their skills seem sub par compared to a few of the other Contestants. The overall win by Daran could not have been more deserved, the Alien Rock Goddess concept and execution is probably the best make up I have seen on the show in a very long time, and possibly the most original. Where last week felt disappointing, this week left off on a much higher note, leaving me looking forward to what could be up next.
