Hey, mods, let me me know if I've done this correctly.

For this contest, you will draw the Battle for Krakoa—the last, desperate fight between all of mutantdom and all of humanity.

You can choose to draw individuals (for example, Proteus attacking an army with his reality powers or a bloodied Wolverine raising a victory flag over Krakoa). You can also draw as many Marvel/ X-characters battling as you can fit on a page or even create a “Crank Those Panels” story-type image—it’s up to you. Contest will end on July 27th. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s entries!

@egod Thanks, I will if a poster asks. I came up with this idea after figuring that Marvel will eventually do it in the comics, so we'll just beat them to the punch!

Hey, Rams!! Yes, I remember reading the entries for that particular contest. I love panel art, and it was great checking out how the artists interpreted the scripts.

So....are ya gonna start it up again? I'll participate.

I will let you know if I do.

I dont have the time at the moment and not sure going forward. I mean, I can get it going but dont have the time to participate like before. Working on a project presently.

It would be great if you did jump in , we rarely got many to test their skills and even less at the moment. I can attempt to bring it back every once in a while.

Its a great idea for artists wanting to expand to more than doing a splash page but we are really down to 2 or 3 at any given time joining in at the moment, thats why theres only one contest spotlighted at the moment. If we can get more participants I will start it back up.... I dont know if you know others that may join in, if you do, ask to see if they care to participate...

BTW, we used to find 1-3 images online as an example to inspire other creative types to join in the theme being chosen. I tried not make it too difficult so if we chose a character that was popular more artists would try and post their interpretation of that particular one being highlighted. Let me know what your thoughts are beyond this.

You just answered your own question: I think you should chose a character that is popular with posters for the "Crank" contest (a short poll, maybe?). That's why I drew Jean Grey for my entry because I love me some old-school X-Men. I noticed a lot of love for Superman here, too...

I don't think I know any artists who'd participate anymore. I'd ask some of my old Yahoo groups gang, but everyone there has moved on, too.

Maybe this might be an idea for someone who likes drawing but doesnt like creating a whole page: I know I don't have the patience for doing the lettering, drawing sound effects, or drawing word balloons and panels, so I use Comic Life. You just drag and drop your illustrations into templates of your choice, and its free for thirty days. That's how I created the lettering for my contest entry.

Wow! So much talent up in here!! Really enjoying everyone's artworks that have been posted in the last week (and I need to post some of my own stuff)!

Just a reminder that the July contest is supposed to end on the 15th--however, If anyone wants more time, let me or one of our awesome mods know!

Ok. Lots of views, but no responses about a time extension. Therefore, I'll designate the 27th of this month as the final day to submit for this contest. That's one more full week; after that, I'll leave whatever happens up to the mods.

Well...gang, the deadline was the 27th, and it's almost August. We've got exactly one entry, so I suppose that Blackdog2009 is the winner for July by default (unless the mods and the rest of you say otherwise). To quote Thor, "What say ye all?"

@knotty: @egod:

Thank you guys. A default win isn’t really a win imo. Or should I say a win is a win 😉

I’ll be honest and say I’m disappointed with the lack of participation. I hope the next contest brings out more participation and creativity from all these artists that are here and can dish out amazing work.

I’ll be here always cheerleading and participating as best I can.

Stay safe everyone!!

@blackdog2009: It's not the first or second time someone has one by default, unfortunately it happens. You're still up to create the next contest subject. I would've done something myself, but I never liked any of the sketches and I'm trying to get back into painting. Maybe something simple/silly might draw in more?

I think that the issue with this contest was the constricted topic. Rather than specific limitations of what we can draw, we should limit it to the types of drawings (close-ups, objects or people, superheroes, supervillains, fight snapshots etc).
