So can we submit a digital drawing?  I have never successfully drawn the male form I am sure I will need help with my sketches in photoshop >< but if I have to I will keep it to the sketch pad.

Well, AnnettKS I would prefer to see your raw talent.  The feelings I get are that digital gives an unfair advantage to those who aren't fluent with photo painting programs.  This would be an excellent way to help with your drawing of the male form. ;-)  A finished pencil sketch is just as good. 

Good Luck, hope to see your work!

If you want to add a stipulation to a showdown, you need to note it in your post when you start the showdown. You can't expect people to come back to the thread days later if they already got started and read through the posts to see if any rules have been added.

Fine, people can do whatever meduim they want since I didn't state it, my bad.  Maybe general guide lines should have been stated from the begining instead of having to reiterate rules every single time.  It seems every time these are done people always ask questions even if they are stated.  Then if we want to add something in particular we can.

Go nuts, just keep it PG.

The general guidelines have been that there isn't any particular medium. If someone wants to enter using charcoals, crayons, MS paint, or make a Batman and Robin bust out of fusilli pasta and enter it, they should be able to do that by default if nothing is specified. It should be more about doing your best regardless of what level you're at, getting the practice in, and having some friendly competition while you're at it.

The first winner of the first showdown, Sketchor, used digital stuff. I'm not sure I buy the unfair advantage thing just yet, the contests where Flash won (i'm assuming this new rule is being directed at him)- Wolverine- there was only 1 other participant,  Warpath -2 other entries, and Punisher versus had a ton of entries and was very competitive with basically a 3-way tie with him, TMOE, and bobkane.

All that said, if you win, you can make whatever rules you want when you start the showdown, so don't let any of that stop you if you really want to just see people's take on a character in pencils & inks, in a certain setting or scenario, whatever.

I asked for only BATMAN and ROBIN and for it to be kept respectful and PG, that is not PG majinhulku. 
Those were the only rules I had, you said you don't like Robin but those were the rules.  Since it doesn't fall into those guidelines it can't be submitted for the showdown.
You're a good artist I'm sure you can do something without bloodshed.

Come on, that's hardly worse if even on par with stuff found in "PG" related areas. I say let him participate, his work is great, and bloodshed makes comics.

Again, I love it Majin

Oh for @#!$ sake.   What is so difficult to understand. 

I asked for Batman and Robin and supplied reference material.  Only ONE person has done what was actually asked  (thank you annette).

The only constant with this little contest is that you HAVE to follow the "rules" laid out by the contest starter.  Precise, that is a very comical piece and I'm a fan of the Simpsons, but not what is outlined for this contest.  

No one has said majin couldn't enter, just his entry isn't valid because it does not adhere to my guidelines for this contest.  As well his art work is 3/4 Hulk and only 1/4 B&R.  I did not ask for Hulk I ONLY asked for Batman and Robin.

Batman and Robin are both in the Hulk one..... Then there's Batman and Robin played by Homer & Bart....  Looks valid to me.

 I DID NOT ASK FOR BATMAN AND ROBING VS WHOMEVER,  I DID NOT ASK FOR PEOPLE TO DRAW OTHER CHARACTERS AS BATMAN AND ROBIN.

That is what I asked.  Batman and Robin that is it.  So they ARE NOT VALID.

Y'know DW did say that you are to draw BATMAN AND ROBIN, also he said to TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT and PG, so far I haven't seen any RESPECT or PG in majin drawing watsoever, so common sense says its not valid for the contest when you don't stick to the rules stated by the contest starter.  Although if you're gonna get technical which everyone seems to be doing now, then he also didn't say you couldn't draw anyone else in the drawing (sorry but you didn't say Batman and Robin only).

I love the Simpson's and that drawing is hilarious and really well done, technically DW said Batman and Robin, it is Batman and Robin, just Homer and Bart dressed as Batman and Robin, that one is kind of hard to say whether its valid or not, but you start doing that and you're gonna have people drawing Batman and Robin as slutty girls and so on.  

This is all getting to be a bit too much, those of us who started in this contest since the beginning knew the basic rules and pretty much kept to them even if they weren't stated EVERY single time, like new drawings only that are done specifically for the contest, that one hasn't been stated in every new contest but we all knew it was there.

Even if EVERY SINGLE detail isn't listed by the contest starter, common sense and respect to the contest should pretty much be the standard rule of thumb, we're not all 5 years old here.

were not 5 egod.  well darn. guess i should back out of comic vine then.  but you are right this is getting a bit immature.  JUST DRAW BATMAN AND ROBIN,  DW is the winner and he said he wants batman and robin.  why is it so hard to do just that.   Everyone here is a copitant and capable artist no matter what you draw or what medium you draw in.  Lets have some fun and just do as the man asked.

It is just drawing comic books characters. I did it and I have only drawn (counting batman and robin) three in my life. It would suck and smoosh my self esteem if I won by default because no one else entered because dawning a straight batman and robin (straight as in not distorted by fades and/or vulgarity) is just way too difficult.

4 days left! Lets see some art. It is an art contest not a popularity contest or a who can make more drama contest. Let your art speak.

okay.....i drew a picture of Batman in Robin in new gear. They're supposed to be Nightwing as the new Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin. I also added a small Batgirl (who's really Spoiler) in the background just for fun. is this valid or am i gonna have to draw a new one?

Reminder- although its supposed to be Nightwing and Damian behind the masks, you can still tell its Batman and Robin.I just modified their costumes.
