Thanks to the people that voted for my version of new joker. Now, I get to choose what to do next? Hmm. What does everyone like to do? Is it strictly about redesigns or can I choose anything? If anything I would say how about a drawing of a biiiiiiiig fight, let’s say 12 characters minimum? Is that lame? Is anyone willing to take that on? Let me know
Oh hey, great! Welcome back.
The way it goes is, when you win one of the themed contests, you host the next one. The theme stays the same (character redesign). Each contest picks a character we'd like to see given an updated or new costume. You're free to pick any character from any company of your choosing, but the bigger more well known characters typically see the best results and turnout. That's up to you of course. If you wanna go obscure that's your choice. Sometimes folks will pick a team like the X-men and ask entrants to choose an X-man (or woman) and design their look or make a new team costume. We used to have an archive, though I haven't seen it in a while. Perhaps @egod (our mod) could help with that?
To create the next contest just start a new thread, pick your character, be sure to add the number and name of the contest in the title, and be sure to give a deadline (usually one month). Hosts typically provide a few sample images of their character in iconic poses (the thread creator is very simple to use). But it's up to you if you want to do that or not.
While I appreciate the idea of a big 12 person battle, this is a small community and we try to keep the contests a bit on the smaller side since most of us have kids, jobs, and other responsibilities, and these are just side things we do for for fun. There's rarely a prize even, unless a contest host decides to throw something in out of his or her own pocket like this time. (speaking of which, hit me up in a private message and let me know where to send your prize!).
I hope I covered everything. But if not, feel free to hit me up or ask one of the mods for help. The mods are: @egod, @shatterstar & @bumpyboo. Any of us would be happy to help you get the next one up and running. And most importantly, welcome to the Comic Vine community! We love new members!
