Hello and welcome!

This is a spin-off of the original GFX Art Battle, but with some updated rules and changes. Please make sure to read the rules before entering, since they have been modified. Good luck, we look forward to seeing some creative artistic entries!

Competition Rules
1. Must be hand drawn, either on paper or in a program. It can then be manipulated in an graphics program. But unoriginal artwork cannot be used as the main focus. Copyrighted images cannot be used. All pieces containing copyrighted images will be disqualified.
2. Submissions must follow the current theme that has been chosen by a moderator for that week. If you submit more than one piece, please clarify which one you would like to be judged.
3. If your image is larger than 600 pixels wide, please provide a link to the image instead of posting it in the forum. Otherwise, the image will be cut off.
4. Artists cannot win in subsequent weeks. You can still submit, but if you won the week before, you cannot get first place again the next week.
5. After the deadline, a moderator will pick the winner, and they will be awarded a 25 AP award.

Your welcome. Your entry is kinda pixelized and hard to tell that you drew it.

Maybe you should have zoomed out of the ninja so the ninja looks less pixely?

Cen, this competition is for non-animated entries, so it'll be cartoon form. Or even a poster. Or a character sheet. Or a strip.

When I say presentation is important I want to see how your idea works with the way you present it!

But... Strop, isn't a cartoon the animated stuff that is shown on TV and stuff? Cartoons?
It's called comic books and/or strips, right?

I am confused by the English language tonight.

Oh. Heh, right, I see. Quite possibly I got the terminology completely wrong, as I am not braining today. Cartoon, comic...as opposed to animation...animated cartoons?

@..@

If I wanted to be as specific as possible I would say "fictional drawn characters for use in the sequential art medium". Comic strip characters and the like.

Calvin and Hobbes, Charlie Brown, Superman and Spiderman and Batman and those Marvel and DC Superheroes and Usagi Yojimbo, for example. All I want is the impression that the character is to go in a comic book or something. In fact I don't care if it's for the animated medium either. Just something along those lines.

My real name lol name is KERNEL O'RLY

Hehe, that was mine!

Anyways..... that was nice, Deth. It's a little blurry and pixelated, though, do you have a way to make the resolution clearer?

I'd accustom that to the fact that we are both Kevin and we probably share a similar name or a name that is connotative to O'RLY!
