No wait, "best briber" sounded dumb... I choose to change that to "May the deepest pockets win"

Haha, yes. That's cleaver.

Ok, Darkman, time's up. Sorry dude, your post will have to be an exhibition. You've had four extra hours since when I said it could be posted, and it's friggin' typed up and everything.

Well let's start with this 40 gallon Stetson hat made out of gold...

*Hat made of gold*

And a pound of louisiana pig butter

*louisiana pig butter*

We can work over the extra details from there.

This depresses me. I sure wish I had real money. I just thought it would be fun to dress like a cowboy and bribe people indiscriminately.

Ahh don't worry, there aren't technically that many.... All the ones with bleedman characters winning are automatically disqualified.

It would make David look bad if one of them won.

It looks nice, Darkman, but Megaman is not one of the comics hosted on the Snafu server. This is supposed to be the Ultimate Snafu Showdown.

CHALLENGE I - RESULTS!

[center]FIRST PLACE: AoiNoKitsune!
For her entry: Save Our Server!
Judge's comments: Yeah, AoiNoKitsune definitely swooped out of NOWHERE to catch up the win. She is a newb to the forum, but definitely no newb to art. Judging by her gallery, comics and the level of art and colouring weren't outside her habitual means, but she definitely definitinely didn't cough this up in her sleep! Comics of this calibre take a LOT of work, and she clearly put a lot of thought and effort into the art and story. The concept was very creative. She was not the only submitter to think of setting her piece in 'the aftermath' of the ultimate showdown, but she was definitely the only one to incorporate the site server in the comic. Well done, AoiNoKitsune!!

SECOND PLACE: Aneri!
For her entry: Ultimate Chess!
Judge's comments: I gave Aneri this honour because I felt she really got the *point* of the challenge. She really pushed herself in creativity and stretching beyond her own means. She's not kidding when she says this is her first Photoshop (and I must say, for a first time I am very much impressed!) This is also the only group picture in her gallery, and the composition is very complex, incorporating some really neat poses, and great perspective. Not to mention, she snagged the concept of the challenge being chess right out from underneath me, so I gotta give her props. Well done, Aneri!!

THIRD PLACE: 3 way tie! MaddKaze, Aeris and Keeper!
MaddKaze for: the Street Brawl, Aeris for The Court, and Keeper for Unity!
Judge's comments: Ok, so a three-way-tie for third is a *total* cop out, I will admit that ;) But there were so many entries, and I honestly could not decide between these three!

MaddKaze gets this spot for being one of the few who I felt really did the literal interpretation of the theme justice. Really neat perspective and poses for these guys, but Megas is what stole the show in this piece. Megas and the PPG/RRB/Bell streaks in the sky bring this piece together really nicely.

Aeris is the other who gets this spot for really challenging herself! Having Wasted Talent in the piece definitely appealed to my ego (lol) but that definitely wasn't the only reason! I thought the inclusion of quite a few other webcomics that have Snafu ties was a really cool idea, as was the idea of a 'courtroom' set for the showdown. Though I don't really understand what the trial is about XD She also chose an image that would be a challenge for her, the perspective and amount of characters is not something that she typically undertakes.

Keeper gets props for really stretching the theme. There was a lot of combat in the entries so seeing a piece of unity was *so* refreshing! A pretty well-executed piece, as well, I liked the colours ^_^ The ultimate showdown will be sticking together :)


[/center]

Fantastic work, everyone!! :w00t:

Did you read the first post? You had to include characters from the site, which I did. You could put anybody else in it. Besides, it was the best I could come up with right now.

As for a suggestion...

Basically, a picture or comic of people in a real world istuation, dispalying properties or traits of internet users.
