Ninth Weekly #Cartoon-off Contest, guest judge: @sawcraz.art!

in cartoon-off •  2 months ago

9 SBI prizepool for THREE different categories: single frame, strip (at least 2 frames) and humor.
Contests will be announced on Sunday, prizes from the previous week handed out on Monday.
If you are interested in being a judge for this contest, donating, or sponsoring, then you can post in the comment section or else DM me on Discord @ Devil#5124
SBI shares give you a share of a cascading reward pool that will upvote your posts according to how many shares you own! This is adjusted according to your posting frequency, so no need to feel pressured to post every day, just at least once a week. Over time this pays off to quite a lot more than a plain 3 SBD prize, but please let me know what you think in the comments!

Judging guidelines

  1. All skill levels are welcome. We will not be judging technical expertise but instead cartoon originality.
  2. This is not a fine art competition but a cartoon competition - that is not to say that a cartoon cannot demonstrate high levels of technical skill, but what is most important is its stylistic originality and the strength of its message.
  3. Cartoons can inspire all sorts of emotions from outrage to laughter, but do so because they have a narrative. The manner of presentation is simplified to where someone with zero background in either fine art or your subject matter can gather and take away your message: how will you do this with your cartoon?

For this ninth week, our judges will be @corpsvalues and @sawcraz.art!!

@sawcraz.art has volunteered to judge for us and we are honored! The images in this post are taken from her very active and amazing blog (with her permission) and I highly encourage you to follow her and read her posts, which feature an amazing blend of original style and technical expertise! She seems to draw inspiration from just about everywhere so the amount of content variety in her artwork is incredible!

If you know of someone who you think is willing to take the leap and try their hand at making a cartoon, then be sure to give them a nudge, because despite there being 3 prizes awarded, this is actually a judgment free zone! =D
We look forward to seeing your best cartoons!
Good luck!

I don't really use discord buddy, I went on it for a bit but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I prefer steemit chat. :D

·

What? No mayhem and discord for you? =p

·

I will check it out again, it was the fact the groups on discord I was on there was no interaction for me. I was getting fed up of been the only person commenting for 6 hours so I saw it as a waste of time.
I like to rip shit up, but when I am the only person in a room how can I cause mayhem? haha

Bye guys see ya later

Thanks for your entry!

I love this challenge! Awesome idea......although, I think the competitive element would benefit massively from a weekly theme! That way people have to come up with something relevant and original and FRESH. Definitely following now for more cartoons! :) might even join in one day....

·

I've thought a lot about whether to keep the theme open or have a "prompt." The original purpose of this contest was to bring more people into cartooning as a simple and versatile means of sharing a message/emotion, and to demonstrate the versatility of the medium by a format that left the doors wide open to individual creativity and allowing other artists to judge as a "theme" if you will. Every 2 weeks we have a new steemit artist as a judge, and while I am not sure if that has affected the work that people create to submit, it does add a constant variable for prize awarding. I have had two cartoonists that I recall come out and say that they like the open content format and have been constantly open to feedback from the community on their preferences. Thanks for bringing this up!
@crittercrats @justnyz @lildebbiecakes @lovesoldier69 @sanderjansenart @sidekickmatt @turtledancedaily @artonmysleeve @london65 you guys are my most frequent cartoonists: what are your feelings on this contest being open theme/weekly theme! I'd love to hear more on this.

Thanks so much!!!!

I am very excited about this and I hope to see many incredible entries
