    Holy shit that last page is awesome overload.

    Someone tell me something to draw! But keep in mind I go to bed in 2 hours.

    Tynic- I think you should totally keep working in that style- it seems pretty natural for you

    Chico- I think this contest doesn't really works for you. You already have a million different styles! I luv'd The Mouse and the Motorcycle growing up

    I did this thing- I know I got the idea of the theme a little wrong- but when I saw the picture Iruka linked, for some reason all I could think of was robocop, so this happened...



    That spoiler is creepy as hell ! But i like it :p

  • m3nacem3nace Registered User regular
    Oh yeah. This is a thing people, remember, thing. Like, do stuff for this thing and, maybe, win.

    This was definitely not comfortable, so mission successful?



    The cartoon/stylized one just irks me bad. It's so weird to break away from my usual process, I always end up with a mix. It's hard to explain, I don't think I really did well on that one.

    The realistic one was a bit more straightforward for me, but I know there is a lot more to learn after seeing mine.

    My first attempts:

    Did you know that's my friend+old co-worker from 38 Studios? :P

  • F87F87 So Say We All Registered User regular
    Your friend+old co-worker is amazing! I really love those expressions! :)

    Frank... dudeman, do more of both those styles. Going out of your comfort zone yielded awesome results, seriously.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    ND, I did not know. I follow pretty much all the artists I can on Deviant art. That's really cool though! The work is amazing, I hope they found a new job somewhere.

    Frank! Thanks for doing it, sorry I was so persistent! I can crit that first drawing if you'd like me to, either post it in your thread or PM me. I hope you feel like you gained something from the experience and that it wasnt just a trial!

  • NightDragonNightDragon 6th Grade Username Registered User regular
    That's awesome you found her randomly. Hah! Internet.

    Also this thread is awesome, and I'll stop interrupting it. Woo!

    As kind of an aside, grats, m3nace, on coming up with one of the most widely-participated-in challenges in a long time. :)

  • m3nacem3nace Registered User regular
    Thank you thank you, I accept your nominatio- wait, wrong mode. Calibrating....
    Heh, yeah I guess so. At least it will be once people post all of their things =P

  • JonnydarkJonnydark Registered User
    Awesome... I read the brief... didn't quite figure out how to get started though...

    Here is some of my art:

    This is a great challenge!

    I have some suggestions:

    earthwormadam, I love your bold lines but I'm curious what your work would look like without the reliance on linework
    Pascal Campion style

    Jonnydark, I'd like to see you do something more cartoony
    Alina Chau style

    Mynt, you have a clean style with very little clutter... let's add some clutter
    Mattias Adolfsson style

    I'm still a beginner so I'm not sure if I have much of a style of my own yet, but if someone wants to point me in a direction I'd be happy to give this a shot. You can find my art blog below in my sig.

    Oh right, this thing is a thing. I say we wrap it up a week or so after Natcowrimo ends, thus any last minute submissions from you busy cartoonists can get in too.

    Sweet... yeah, I'm in the middle of NatCoWriMo, so I'll have something out in the beginning of December. If it closes before I can post, no biggie.

    Oh, wow! Super neat-o. I am the King of Discomfort!

    Now to brainstorm an awesome challenge! You guys better start sharpening those pencils! Or stylus. Whatever.

  • m3nacem3nace Registered User regular
    I'm going to sharpen my pen, that's just how I roll.

  • F87F87 So Say We All Registered User regular
    You will need the sharpest of pens. New challenge is up, I hope you guys like it!
