Hense, the question- Here is a link to my comic:
[center]Image[/center]
I spent HOURS on it, not for the meaning of competing but I have nothing better to do. It still looks awful because it was edited in FRICKEN PAINT!!
Wish I had my adobe back...
But drawn, inked red, scanned, and edited in paint.
And this contest is 'Ultimate showdown', when that came to mind I thought... Xiaolin Showdown... AND HA! Tin's a ninja so it goes perfect.
And so, the result of a Shen Gong Wu challenge between Omi & Tin.
Oh my God - I love that show!

xD

Very funny. Omi might be a bit too tall (he only weighs 20 pounds!), but still good. I love it.

I hope my entry's good...


WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! This is my 4th post and I already have someone to like my work! I SO HAPPY :)
AND I'M NOT ALONE EITHER... I'm like freakin 16 and like Xiaolin showdown. HA. AND DO YOU! YAY!
But... I was noticing that when I was drawing Omi, how small he is... but then we're not sure how big Tin is either... for all we know, Tin could be the size of an action figure from 'little people' toys.

But then again... i'm sure after this gets noticed many people will start to tell me 'kindly' how tall tin is and how he isn't the size of little people action figures...

--- But since this ends July 7th, I might make another submission... THIS TIME NOT TOUCHED IN PAINT. Just sketches.

Endling's is the prettiest, and BG07's was the funniest, IMHO.

I'm officially entering now, because I don't want the YouTube entry to win. I'm going to be doing everything in my power to knock that thing out, 'cuz:

A) They cut the song
B) Choppy transitions and editing
C) Pretty obscure references
D) The song is by Lemon Demon, who also wrote/performed Word Disassociation on Google Video
E) Dave liked it

So yeah, consider me in on this.

A) The song was too long and would have been harder to get pictures for.
B) It's hard to trasition when you have 1) Crappy software 2) Not a lot of things to work with.
C) I'm only using Snafu comics, of course they are going to be obscure.
D) I didn't know who the writer/performer was and would have given them proper credit.
E) He owns the site, so there's nothing you can do.

Don't take this as disrespect. I'm giving reasons. Spikecomix told me that it was perfectly okay. Its okay not to like it, but to say that you will do everything in your power to kick out a perfectly fair entry is worng. I have the same chance as anyone.

Guys, don't fight, friendly competition. Zeal, you should enter to better yourself :) Besides, there's no indication of who is winning so far. I am the judge, not Dave ;)

Endling, thank you so much for stopping by!! ^_^

I'm only trying to stick to my guns. I welcome constructive critisism, but saying that I should be kicked out is wrong.

If he didn't say that I deserve to be kicked out, then I would have welcome the advice and try to improve.

Hahaha

BWAHAHAHA

Taku fails at detecting sarcasm.

The first 3 were critiques, the fourth was info, so you can update it and give due credit to the artists, and the last was the staple shot at Dave, which also indicated sarcasm. When you join a forum, it's typically a good idea to check back-posts and figure out what different people's posting styles are. That way, you don't make a fool of yourself when someone says something and you completely misconstrue it.

If you're going to do a music video, you should at least do the whole song. Chopping it up tends to be viewed as a lack of effort by the general population of the MV community. The stuff you were doing looked like it was a very basic power point presentation. You could at least use Windows Movie Maker, and put together something with interesting transitions. As for using "only" comics on SNAFU, first off, you plugged a friend's comic, second, you have about 12 for T.W., at least 210 SNAFU, 36 or so for Grim, maybe 22 Tin, 4 Zim, 4 Ever After (not including the ones on DA), 140 PPGD, 13 KoF 2001. How is that not enough? Especially since you took like 4 seconds with each clip. I'd chalk it up to not wanting to put forth the effort, not lack of resources. Also, the transition for Mr. Rogers was too early. C'mon now, give it another go.

Toffee, you win for having an awesome name, and pretty good artistic sense for your age. Keep up the good work, yo.

Spike, I'm not aiming to actually take her outta the running. That would entail me winning, and I have no intention of doing that. Too many better people entered. XD

I'm sorry, I'm too new to this forum to know which users tend to be sarcastic. I think I'll try to fix some things, It's just that YouTube won't let you edit the accual video. I guess I can repost it.
