Okay guys. We need some kind of motivation in here. :D So I'm going to propose an artpad contest, of sorts. The only thing I can think of to offer as a prize is a personalized drawing of your favorite Pokemon, in my Flash style. :P But basically, the premise is this: I've seen some pretty crappy Artpad comics out there. And I was hoping that some of you talented people would have a better chance at producing a good, funny one. So here it is: make a comic, using Artpad, and post the link to it here. There are no rules as to the content, other than these:
1. Must be a comic
2. Must be funny
3. Nothing inappropriate!!!

Inappropriate content is that which is outlawed by the rules of the PE2K forums. So anyone up for it? I'll show you mine by way of an example. Unfortunately, it's neither very funny, nor very good, so don't go modeling yours off of it or anything. :P :

Feel free to comment on mine or any or all of the submissions you see here. As I get some submissions, I'll post the links to them in a list here, for easy access:
1. Mr. Dimwit and the Explosion Attack! (http://artpad.art.com/?ii1onz8gees) by Umbreon Shadow
2. Mr. Toon (http://artpad.art.com/?ii1s2uikkd4) by Deoxysfan
3. Of Flying And Jeff (http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?ii1wdbgsvrs) by Defense.2
4.
...

I need judges! If anyone (who isn't participating) would like to be a judge, PM me, and I'll let you be a judge.

List of Judges:
1. Shuko
2. ShinyPkmnMaster
3.
...
*Note: All judges are advized not to give any help to the contestants. Also, they are to remain impartial. If I find out that any of you are judging just to help a friend win, I'll curse Swedish fish on you! >_<*

And I've decided that the deadline for this is going to be Tuesday, June 21. To be precise, I will not be accepting any entries that are submitted beyond this date. So by 11:59p.m. on June 21st (Central Standard Time) you'd better have your final entries in. :)

These are the criteria that the entries will be judged upon:
1. Originality
2. Humor
3. Legibility
4. Artistic Flair
(out of a possible 10 points in each category)

Although it is unlikely, there will be a possibility of a tie. In the event of a tie, those who have tied for first place will all be declared winners, and I will award them each the prize mentioned above. But as I've said, a tie is unlikely. ^^;

0_o ?? okay... I'll add it in too. Although it was a little odd for my taste, lol. I'm thinking I'll need to recruit some judges. If anyone (who isn't participating) would like to be a judge, PM me, and I'll let you be a judge.

And I've decided that the deadline for this is going to be one week from tomorrow. That will give you until Tuesday, June 21 to have one done. Until the deadline, you may, if you so choose, change your entry. Just post your entry in this thread, and remind me that you're exchanging it for your old one. :D

If it's messed up at the end, it's because my computer got messed up.

It's titled "Of Flying And Jeff":

I was ready to give up today and make the all-powerful TRIPLE-post, lol! Yes, just send your evaluation of each entry to me via PM, and I'll average yours with mine. :P Remember that these are what we're looking at:

1. Originality
2. Humor
3. Legibility
4. Artistic Flair
(out of a possible 10 points in each category)

Be sure to provide comments describing why you gave the scores like you did for each piece. I'll be posting your comments alongside mine in the post announcing the winners. Just PM me with any questions. ^_~

And for the rest of you, cross your fingers! And have some idea in mind of a drawing you want me to do. :P

At long last, here are the ratings for the comics. First, here are mine:
Mr. Dimwit:
Originality: 8
Humor: 7
Legibility: 9
Artistic Flair:6
Comments: Good idea, although the title was kinda similar to mine... The drawings were very simple, but they got their point across. :) Nice comic.

Mr. Toon:
Originality: 8
Humor:4
Legibility:5
Artistic Flair:7
Comments: Again, the originality of the title needs work. You don't have to call it "Mr." anything, lol. I didn't really find it all that funny. And the premise was kinda dull. The bad grammar and spelling detracted from the dialogue. But the art was pretty decent. You should experiment more with the transparency settings of the paint. You should have made them more opaque when you were creating new scenes. ^_-

Of Flying and Jeff:
Originality: 10
Humor: 8
Legibility: 8
Artistic Flair: 10
Comments: Very original, creative, and funny. The artwork was very good, and the usage of color and setting made the whole thing more potent. I even liked the random images at the end, lol. Definitely my favorite of the three. ^_~

And the ratings of ShinyPkmnMaster are as follows:

Mr toon:
Originality:9
artistic flair:5
Legibility:6
Humor:5
Comments: The idea itself was funny,yet strange.

Of flying and Jeff:
Origanality:7
artistic flair:10
Humor:10
legibilty:3
Comments: That was a hilarious comic to behold!Yet the typimg was too fast 0_O

Mr.dimwit and the explosion attack!:
Originality:8
artistic flair:5
Humor:7
Legibility:4
Comments: The dialoge was kinda strange,and art was a ittle weird,but it was funny!

So there you have it. I'll be PM'ing Defense.2 and asking him what drawing he'd like for me to make. And once I finish it, I'll post it here. Congratulations to Defense.2, and great job, all of you! Thank you for participating! ^_^

And a special thanks to ShinyPkmnMaster for helping me judge the entries. :D You were a big, big help!

All rightee then. :P Defense.2 asked me for a simple Magneton Pic. :P I thought at first that his request was a little silly, seeing as how I offered to do absolutely ANYTHING Pokemon related, lol. But I took it as a personal challenge to exceed my own limits. :P Although he asked for one in the style of my Captain Clefairy pic, I felt that the limitations of MS Paint were too prohibitive for this venture, so I used Macromedia Flash instead. :D Sorry, D.2. :P I hope you'll settle for this. I think it turned out quite nice. In fact, it's IMHO, the best Pokemon drawing I've ever done. I'm going to create a new thread devoted for it so that you guys can comment on it (because I'm just vain like that. XD) and have this thread closed. Again, thank you to all of the participants (All three of you... 0_o) and a big thanks to my guest judge, ShinyPkmnMaster! You guys all did great!
