- HEY, GUYS.- HEY, JOEY.

- HI.- HI.

- WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE TODAY?

- TODAY WE WERE HONORINGMY HUSBAND.

WE DECIDED TO TAKE TWO OFHIS STRONG PERSONALITY TRAITS

AND SHOW THEM.

- JOEY, BOTH THESE DESIGNSLOOK REALLY COOL.

I REALLY LIKE THE WAY YOUUSED YOUR ENGRAVER

TO SHOW SOME SHADING.

THE PART THAT'S SHADED ANDENGRAVED VERSUS THE SHINY PART

OF THE DOG TAGREALLY STANDS OUT.

ANYBODY THAT KNOWS THIS MANIS GONNA UNDERSTAND

WHAT THIS MEANS,AND I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT.

- HEY, KYLE.- HEY, GUYS.

- HOW ARE YOU?- HOW YOU DOING?

- HELLO, TRACY,WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE TODAY?

- WE'RE HERE TO HONOR MY SON.

MY SON WAS VERY ARTISTIC,VERY MUSICAL.

IT JUST--I MEAN,THAT'S WHO HE WAS AS A PERSON.

GREAT JOB REALLY CAPTURINGBOTH SIDES OF HIS SPIRIT,

ONE BEING A FUN MUSICIANAND JOKER.

YOU REALLY HIT IT ON BOTH SIDESOF THE FENCE ARTISTICALLY

AND WITH A LOT OF FINESSE.

- JOSHUA, HOW ARE YOU?- HOW'S IT GOING, DAVE?

- EARL,WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE TODAY?

- I WANTED TO TAKETHIS OPPORTUNITY

TO COMMEMORATE MY FRIENDSWHO DID NOT MAKE IT HOME.

- IT TOOK FINESSE TO FIT THATMANY INITIALS

AND HAVE IT STILL ALL TOSTAND OUT AND ALL TO BE LEGIBLE.

YOU HIT THISRIGHT ON THE HEAD,

AND THIS WAS A LOT TO DOTHAT YOUR CLIENT WANTED

IN A SMALL SPACE.

YOU REALLY DID A GREAT JOB.

- HI, BABY.

SPENCER,WHAT DID YOU WANT TATU BABY

TO DO HERE ON YOUR DOG TAGS?

- I WANTED SOMETHING THATREPRESENTED WHY I DO WHAT I DO,

AND THAT'S ALL ABOUT FAMILYFOR ME.

MY WIFE AND DAUGHTERARE HUGE PARTS IN THAT.

- I REALLY LIKE THE SCRIPT.

I THINK IT ADDS A LITTLEELEMENT OF BEAUTY

TO SOMETHINGTHAT'S NORMALLY A TAG

WITH A NAME AND SOME NUMBERS.

AS FAR AS THE EYE,

IT REALLY CAPTURES THE ESSENCEOF HIS STORY.

GREAT JOB.

- HEY, JIME.

CHRIS, WHAT DID YOU ASK JIMETO DO HERE?

- I ASKED JIME TO TRYAND EVOKE A COUPLE IMAGES

MY SON, JORDAN, REPRESENTS.

- I THINK THIS IS REALLY COOL.

PUTTING THIS LITTLE EAGLEON THAT LITTLE DOG TAG

IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CANDESCRIBE OF YOUR SON

AND FOR HIM TO BRING THAT OUT,

AND THEN ALSO PUTTHE NAVY SYMBOL ON THERE

TO COMMEMORATE THE MEDALHE RECEIVED.

I THINK IT'S REALLY AWESOME.

- IT'S REALLY NICELY DONE.

I KNOW YOU'LL NEVER FORGETTHIS MOMENT.

- NEVER.

- WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUCOMING AND SHARING WITH US.

- IT'S TOUGH TO PICKA TOP AND A BOTTOM.

- EVERYBODY REALLYTOOK IT TO HEART,

AND THEY ALL CAME OUT AMAZING.

- HOW IMPORTANT IS FINESSEIN A SITUATION LIKE THIS?

- THE USE OF FINESSE TO BEABLE TO EXTRACT THE STORIES

FROM YOUR CLIENT REALLYGIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY

TO PUT OUT YOUR BEST WORK.

- I THINK KYLE'S IS ONE OFTHE MORE ARTISTIC ONES.

THE LITTLE DETAILHE PUT IN THE BOOTS,

THE GUN AND THE HELMET--

- WHAT DID YOU THINKOF JOEY'S WORK?

- I THOUGHT JOEY'SWERE SUPER COOL,

THE WAY HE WORKEDWITH THE ENGRAVING.

HE MADE IT LOOK STRONG AND BOLD.

THE CROSS HAD COOL SHADING INTHE RAYS.

- TATU BABY DID THE HOMAGE

TO THE GENTLEMAN'S DAUGHTERAND HIS WIFE.

- RIGHT.

- I THOUGHT SHE DIDTHE LETTERING REALLY NICELY.

- JIME HAD THE GENTLEMANWHO LOST HIS SON.

- THAT EAGLE WITH THAT 33IS SUCH A STRONG, BOLD IMAGE,

AND IT'S VERY WELL DONE.

- JIME'S WORK ON THIS,ARTISTICALLY,

WAS SO PRECISE AND DELIBERATEAND VERY TIGHT,

AND HE USED A LOT OF FINESSETO DO THOSE TINY LITTLE DETAILS

THAT REALLY LOOK GREAT.

- JOSHUA WENT A LITTLE BITSIMPLER IN TERMS

OF DESIGN ELEMENTS.

THAT FIRST LOOK, IT'S NOTAS ARTISTIC AS SOME OF

THE OTHER ONES WE'VE SEEN,BUT THE CRAFTSMANSHIP

AND THE STEADY HANDAND THAT CONSISTENT OUTLINE

WAS REALLY NECESSARY TO BE ABLETO DO THAT VERY SMALL,

TIGHT LETTERING.

- WE'RE JUDGING ON FINESSE.

A LOT OF THE OTHER PEOPLETHAT DID MORE ARTISTIC STUFF,

ENGRAVED OVER AND OVER TO SHADEOR THICKEN UP.

JOSHUA, HE PRETTY MUCH HADONE CHANCE

ON EACH ONE OF THOSE LINES.

- WELL,THIS IS A TOUGH ONE,

BUT WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO GOSELECT A WINNER.

WE ALL AGREE?- YEAH.
