Congratulations to all the winners! ^_^

I know that this is really overdone and all, but I keep seeing the seven deadly sins personified everywhere, and it always looks like such a fun thing to do.

So, why not have the seven deadly sins/seven heavanly virtues personified through the characters in the comics hosted here at Snafu? I guess the easiest way to do this is to pick a character that represents that sin/virtue, but what's really interesting is when you declare the obvious sins/virtues off limits (ex. Bell cannot be wrath, because she can be a killing machine at times, and that kind of qualifies as wrath for me) and force the contestant to think to take this character, like Bell, and make them exemplify something that they don't really stand for or show in the comic. I just think that, based on the amazingly creative ideas that came from this contest, the turnout for something like this would definately be imressive!

Hope I explained it alright...and I have no name for it. I'm not creative when it comes to titles...

I remember that the "Forum Comics" contest was a huge hit last time we tried it, so maybe we can try it again under these new rules with new people and new ideas.

Basically, you draw a picture, comic strip, or whatever you like of your friends on the Snafu/Bleedman Forums. You can portray them as their avatar (ie: Aneri could be drawn as a pink haired elf girl), their signature character (ie: Erix could be drawn as Ketil or I can be drawn as Relick), or what they percieve as their "forum persona" (ie: Dave as Snafu Dave or Spike as Jammy).

Here's an example of what I mean (It's a slightly older pic ^_^; ) :

Nope! You just submit your entry within the allotted time frame, which is two weeks for each contest. You just missed this one, but we're making plans for our next contest. ^_^

Of course you have a chance, you silly panda! Everyone has a fair and equal chance, especially since there's no really winning or losing in this competition. You're basically competing against yourself and your previous works, trying to better your style and technique. I believe The Challenge Yourself contests are the ultimate feel-good threads. I always feel so much better about my work when other people give comments and criticisms. ^_^

Yup, that's pretty much the way it works. The winners are the ones that the judge feels pushed themselves the hardest and really gave it their all. But every work gets noticed and commented on, so you are your own enemy. Just try your best and above all, have fun!

Short span comics/create a character would be nice...and the winner will have the priviledge of continuing the series and being added in the list that Snaufu has. (if at some point the reaction to the series are low, snafu mods has the right to take it out).

how about that idea?

Two words: Dave's Mom.

Actually I think creating a NEW (As in never been drawn before) character would be a good way to go.

Hmm, the comic could be a good idea... idk about CONTINUING it though, it's pretty hard to come up with original storylines. :badday:

I like the idea of the sins and virtues represented by Snafu characters. There's certainly enough of them to choose from! (All my 5 are belong to that!) w00t

Added after 4 minutes:

btw, for the final entry postings, are the yellow links any different from the gray links? in other than color? (Like an "honorable mention" or some such thing?)

I noticed that a few submissions seemed intent upon displaying non-Snafu characters - e.g. the use of Megaman - so why not a new crossover idea?

Take one or more SC series - e.g. Snafu, EverAfter, HappyZim, et al - and combine with one or more non-SC series.

Examples:

1) "Godzilla Versus The Irkens" - a giant nuclear monster of slight danger versus the Massive. Who wins? Who knows?

2) "Read it and Reap" - Grim is put on trial for genocide. Will the line "I was only doing my job" suffice in the human world? Will a certain super lawyer save him?

[spoiler]And I'm not talking about Harvey Birdman, but you COULD use him if you wanted to. As an example.[/spoiler]

3) "Cliched Crossover #32" - the world is in danger and only a poorly-recoloured Mary Sue can save us!

...On second thoughts, ignore my idea, please.

The seven deadly sins (their opposing heavenly virtues) would be pride (humility), envy (kindness), gluttony (abstinence), lust (chastity), anger (patience), greed (liberality), and sloth (diligence).

The virtues I listed are correctly called the Seven Contrary Virtues, because they are supposed to save you from the Seven Deadly Sins. Anyway, that's my short list. I'd reccomend this site for more info if you're interested, or just ask me again, I don't mind ^_^

Wow. O.o Just wow. Heh, I didn't even think I get a single place at all. Wel, I may have had a little hope but anyways cool. :) And congratulations to the higher up winners and even those who just participated. ^_^

Now for my suggestion. I was thinking on the lines of having a contest where you had to draw your character/monster/etc in a scene where like the whole world has gone to hell. How would your character/monster/etc react to such a thing? And I'm not talking "save the day for the greater good" No. The world has been almost completely destroyed. So how would your character react or be like after such a horrible thing and they were left with nothing to do? The main point of my suggestion would be that whoever could draw the best example of how someone or even anyone would react to such hellish things would possibly be the main goal to achieve in the whole contest.

Anyways, that's as good as I can get at it with suggestion. I'm still a bit sleepy; so yeah. ^_^;
