Do you like the quirky humor of our piglet Pinky and hedgehog Spiky? Can you relate with the screw-ups of Spiky? Or perhaps you have something in common with the order-loving Pinky? Or maybe you like their pets - Cornelius the purple cardinal, Dietrich the mouse, Victor the spider and Betsy the butterfly? They sure add lots of fun to the situations. Here's the thing: my wife Ausra - @laputis and I invite you to join in a contest to draw our beloved imaginary friends and win some STEEM.
Are you an experienced artist? You can participate easily. Are you a beginner like us? No problem. This contest is open to every humor-loving Steemian.
- Make a post of a comic strip you made
- It could be a single panel or a multi-panel comic strip - the length doesn't matter
- Could be a silent comic too - without words.
- The comic strip has to follow this contest theme
- The comic has to be original and made by you
- Digital and conventional art is valid
- Use any drawing materials you want
- Use #pinkyandspiky as your first tag
- Upvote and Resteem this post
- Comment this post with link to your entry and a picture so people can see them
- The contest is open until Monday, May 27 2019 12:00 PM UTC
Theme: Spiky Carrying A Mattress
Will you come up with some exciting and funny comic strip about this? I'm sure you will.
Every participating entry will receive our upvotes. Additionally, 3 winners will be rewarded some STEEM in the following manner:
1st Place: 10 STEEM
2nd Place: 6 STEEM
3rd Place: 4 STEEM
Guest Judge: 2 STEEM
Note About Self-Votes:
Because @laputis and I don't keep SBD or STEEM raised from our own posts to ourselves but rather donate to support not only this contest, but also @deemarshall 's contests, we hope Pinky and Spiky fans will understand the importance of our self-votes too. This way everybody wins - not only we can afford bigger prize pool but also bigger donations.
The way we see it, it's not a self-vote at all - it's our way to help grow Steemit artist community. Oh and by the way, even if we get more Steem Power from our posts, this also means larger upvotes for contest participants.
So please encourage everyone who participate in @deemarshall contests to vote on our posts too because these contests will receive greater donations from us...
Then the whole game is an endless cycle of giving and receiving. And then we all grow together faster... Isn't this what life is all about?
This week we will ask @maiu to be a guest judge whose task will be to pick 3 winners and leave a comment with their choice under this post as soon as possible after the deadline has passed to submit entries. If the guest judge is unavailable or will be late with their nominations, we will pick the winners ourselves. The judge will pick winners based on what made them laugh the most. They will also take into consideration the quality of the comic strip as well - how well it is drawn. However, humor is the most important thing here because when we start drawing, our technique and style isn't at the level of an artist with 10000+ hours of experience.
Our goal here is to support the community while inspiring to create some amazing art and add more laughter to everyone's day.
Questions, comments, ideas? Please let us know your feedback about this contest.
Support our fellow contestants - upvote, resteem and comment their entry to let them know specifically what did you appreciate about their drawing.
Also stay tuned for the post about winners from last week!
We hope to see even more entries next week!
And now go wild with Pinky and Spiky!
