This is kind a hobby of mine. I usually don't draw them just invent new kinds of metabolism and try to fit it onto a creature. I'm in.

--storyboard animation: instead of worrying about frame count, animate scene to scene over ~1-2 minutes. maybe set this to background music, but maybe it's already too involving.

winter holidays are coming up...ideas:

--holiday special remake: something for the writers: take a common holiday special (e.g. how the grinch stole christmas, rudolph the red nosed reindeer), and re-write the story but still make your inspiration recognizable. the goal would be to create a summary of about 1 page in length. maybe as a collab, also include an illustration or a comic of a scene from your remade story.

--the weather outside is frightful: environment study, depict some extreme weather conditions(blizzard, torrential rains, sandstorm). maybe even extend this to fictional conditions.

Epic Boss Battle

Your employer wants you to design the final level of their newly developed game, all with the setting and boss and genre, everything is up to you.

What you may win: A badge (as usual) +everything lamb has in his left trouser pocket right now (to be revealed together with the results).

Come on. It has been forever since we had a contest. Me and djizomdjinn want that epic boss battle. I bet we could muster up some decent turnout.

Spoiler: There is currently € 1.05 in my left pocket right now.

If you guys want a Christmas-themed contest idea...

The New Help

The reindeer are too sick (or drunk) to pull the sleigh this year, so Santa has to look for a form of alternate transportation.

There is nothing right now which I would like more than holding a new PK contest, but there is not enough activity on the board to get a solid turnout. The mods probably know that, so hence, no contests for now. And possibly not ever.

Well, there's nothing that says we can't hold our own contest, without mod intervention. It'd be sorta like a challenge thread or a sketchbook exchange, except with multiple people working off one idea, and other people rating the work.

I wouldn't mind regular official contests again, even if the turnout was low-frequency. pK isn't the same without them, and there are some great ideas in this thread. They provide a decent challenge to draw outside your comfort zone (and to a deadline).

mods: even if participation was low, would holding contests again be such a bad thing?

Just let the contest run until X number of submissions exist and Y number of votes have been entered. Life often gets in the way, and a forum is asynchronous communication anyway.

x chris: nothing wrong with it at all. unfortunately, I haven't been on the forum enough to really handle it anymore. looks like like r.lamb has taken it into his own hands, which i'm fine with.

rejected princesses:

http://www.rejectedprincesses.com/

women from history, fiction or mythology given the "disney princess" treatment.

or maybe the opposite: taking existing disney princesses and depicting them in a more historically accurate/story accurate manner.

Ooooh. This is amazing. I like the first idea.

I am thinking of spicing the future contest up a bit. Would you guys be ok with people from outside this board participating?

The upside is the turnout.

The downside is the fact that we are all friends here and stuff and this is our board and things and yes.

Absolute worst thing that could happen? A bunch of annoying rude people come onto the forum and you mods get extra work chastising/banning them all.

I'm cool with it. Seeing more people's art is always nice.

Haven't got anything particular in mind, but even advertising it on my facebook page may lure someone.
