Alright here's the new Crank Round.

All you have to do is draw a page or more of sequential art and post it up here in this thread. At the end of the comp if you win you get to choose some characters you'd like to draw and start the next round.

If you need a plot idea... You could have the U-Foes trying to steal from pyramid tomb of the great pharaoh Tutankarman... only to find...? Aliens..? Monkeys? ... Dinosaurs...? Bad Cheese..? Nothing...? .

Contest will run until the 15th of May.

Here are some ref images of what the U-Foes look like in case youse didn't know already.

@fiesty_badger6:

You did such a bang up job on yours it looks great. I had to throw something in there to make this into a contest. :)

Here's my silly quick layout to join you.

@fiesty_badger6, I love the style. Thankfully we narrowly avoided an upskirt pic of IronClad.

That Mikey's a real hep cat there, @ramsillustrations. Very nice comic art all up to. Especially liked how you drew Vapor's face. Very professional.

Thanks @communitycollegehero_author. And that is true. No scotsman wants to see what's lays up another man's kilt

Nice stuff so far folks. I have always wondered why the U-Foes weren't used more against the Fantastic Four, instead of the Hulk.

Yeah me too, @cbishop. I wanted to see them everywhere after I first saw them but they went almost nowhere which was a real shame.

@fiesty_badger6: I just think as powerful as the FF are, and as well respected, the U-Foes should be just as feared.

I don't know about feared... they seem to me like the born losers of the superbaddie Mileu, @cbishop. Even their origin was a comedy of errors... But underachievers only need to make a little effort to be achievers...So, I suppose.you could be right.

@ramsillustrations... This contest seems to be dying again through lack of participation... Do you think its worth carrying on with it..? Or should we give it a warriors burial..?

@fiesty_badger6:

Well clearly they were created as a riff on the ff, so there was very little effort put into them, and yes they've been used as bop bags by everyone except Squirrel Girl (but she was busy with Dr Doom <eyeroll>). That's a pretty powerful team though. With the correct writer, they could be great.

@fiesty_badger6:

I agree, the traffic on CV seems to have slowed down and less artists are participating, maybe due to the summer coming up and people like doing more things out of the house. Which means that the Crank the panels contest plummets to the bottom of any of the contests. What we can do is let it wean off for the moment. If you feel like starting it up and let me know further down the line I may join you and perhaps we can get more entries. CV artists showdown forum has its ebbs and flows and I guess theres not many new members wanting to jump in at the moment. It was a decent run but we can always come back to it. :)

Yeah for sure, @cbishop... The right writer and artist... cause they can easily look ridiculous even if they aren't acting that way...

Yeah OK, @ramsillustrations. I'll be sorry to see it go but but it was fun while it was alive and kicking. Maybe we can come back for season 3 a little later on too. Maybe when we do we could draw comics featuring the winning redesigns of some of the other CV contests if and when we come back too. Maybe if people saw their creations in action they might be more interested in drawing some pages of their own...

@fiesty_badger6:

I don't think its so much the theme, although that helps initially. It's kinda too complex for just a fun short project in the evening or afternoon and it may be more time than people have, or are willing to invest in. So its really for the very few fellow artists that want to give it a try.

We can sporadically resurrect it if we can find two or three artists to join in, Its just that even when someone says they are in, they dont always get to it or finish it before the deadline.

@ramsillustrations: @fiesty_badger6: Participation ebbs and flows on the Fan-Fic forum too. FF has been down lately, because probably half of our regulars are in college and had finals to prepare for. I imagine some of them will crank up their participation during the summer, while others will likely be on vacation. It happens. Don't assume it's a dead contest. ;)

Yeah well we'll shut it down for a few months, @ramsillustrations & @cbishop...

I think people over think their comic art a little too much and maybe think that something that blew them away was necessarily forever beyond their abilities... I'd say unless you're an autistic savant you have to work on your thing a bit here and there to get good at it -- cause... good is just better than average.

Maybe we could get some of you fan fiction guys over to write stories for us to draw as well. Maybe that could be another hook.

@fiesty_badger6: there's an entire fan-fic forum full of stories you guys could work with, all conveniently organized in the fic-o-pedia (pinned to the forum). ;)

I've always thought it would be cool if you guys drew the OC's created in the fan-fic character creation contest. There's been 48 of those now, so plenty of material there as well. :)
