After deep thought on the next contest, I came up with... nothing. So, let's use that...

No Caption Provided

The topic for Battle Contest# 72 is: Do What You Want!

You can draw Batman fighting Wolverine, Mario and Luigi teaming up on He-Man, Stone Cold Steve Austin battling alcoholism... it doesn't really matter! Draw whatever fight you've been thinking about but procrastinated on or maybe you'll come up with an idea that's just crazy cool on the fly. There's no solid confines on this one, so draw whomever fighting whatever and make it really great!

This kind of flexibility doesn't arise often, so I'm sure we'll be getting some killer submissions.

BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE!I love coming to this site. Seeing the art, reading the articles, but mostly its the Artist Show-off section that I enjoy. When I was at NYCC this weekend, I grabbed an extra copy of Superman Unchained # 1 that was signed by colorist Alex Sinclair. I offer this to the winner and I'll pay to ship it securely to that person.

DEADLINE:I'm going to give this contest a solid 3 weeks... November 3rd @ midnight (Eastern)

@shatterstar - Would you kindly pin this, good sir?

All images except background done by me. I would have done that too but I'm feeling kind of busy/down/unmotivated/dejected.

I wish I could claim credit for this...well I can claim some credit as I came up with the idea. I got this piece commissioned by a guy called Dan McDaid who ISN'T on CV (shock horror). http://danmcdaid.com/

So whilst not an entry, maybe this will serve as inspiration to others.

I made this using Photoshop, and a variety of images. I created the picture a while back when I was writing my own what if comic. The topic was what if Nick Furry had become the punisher. The Avengers would now kill, and hydra is all gone, due to this. Cap left because he did not believe in these methods. Furry decided the U.S government did not handle situations correctly and with the new avengers over threw them. This led to rebellions from heroes who did not believe in this kind of violence. Captain America, Spider-Man, Frank Castle etc. Frank is part of the resistance because he never became the punisher and never dealt with the pain of losing his family. He doesn't prefer showy hero names as he just calls himself Castle.

Battle threads are already a recurring contest (hence #72).

Oh, I meant the "draw what you want" concept.

Edit: Never mind, I just remembered there's already a thread like this on the forum. Sorry abbout that. :P

@deadcool_xd - Hey buddy... this is neither a battle entry nor drawn directly by you. I appreciate the Photoshop work and your story is cool, but the entry contradicts the rules of the art forums a wee bit. I dig it, but I can't include it. Sorry...

Ok. Next time I will draw it, I'm a good artist as well, I just wanted to use Photoshop on a challenge. Thx for clearing that up!
