Trial by Comics winner for "Kaiju" week and next theme announced!

Good evening, Steemians. I’m coming to you from by bed, because I’m sick. Today was that first day where it hits you like a truck. Compounded by unseasonably cold, wet and windy weather […even by Minnesota standards]. The silver lining, as is usually the case on bad days, was pummeling @tarotbyfergus in Magic: The Gathering. He won one or two, but it was only one…or two. The healing power of crushing my nemesis is the only thing compelling me to sit in bed making this blog post tonight.

I’m grateful for that, because it’s time to announce the winners of this week’s Trial by Comics! Before we do, though, I’d like to take a minute to thank our incredible sponsor for an entire month of Trial by Comics, @danielkiessler. He’s a good friend and truly gifted artist that I encourage to join Steemit to share his work. He does photo realistic pencil and ink drawings that you really have to see to believe. Since he joined Steemit I’ve seen so many comments complimenting him on his “beautiful photography”, the only thing is, they’re not photos. They are drawings! Within a month of joining Steemit, @danielkiessler offered to sponsor four straight weeks of Trial by Comics, matching my rewards. He’s a great asset to the art community and the site, so before you go any further, follow @danielkiessler!

Alright, without further adieu, your first place winner for this week’s Trial by Comics “Kaiju” theme is @beekart for his entry “Inktober - TrialByComics ! - KAIJUUUU!!”. This was such a cool entry and one of the earliest in the week, which is a testament to how incredible @beekart’s work is. There have been a ton of outstanding entries since he posted it and it managed to hold up through the gauntlet of kaiju’s! That truly is a #trialbycomics! Congratulations @beekart! 50.000 SBD’s to you courtesy of Trial by Comics and our sponsor, @danielkiessler! So, there wasn’t a sponsor for a second and third place winner this week, but thanks to some higher post rewards, I’m ponying up the SBD’s to cover those as well […that’s not likely every week, so if you’re interested in sponsoring Trial by Comics, it’s a great to to encourage the community and gain followers. You can message me on the Steemit chat if you’re interested].

Your second place winner for “Kaiju” is @w0olf for his post “#trialbycomics - Theme "Kaiju" - Entry #2 - The Daughters of Kumonga (Full Picture + Process Animation/Pics)”. In a past life, I used to keep and breed tarantulas, and one of my guilty pleasure films is Eight Legged Freaks. You hit me at the core of my arachnid enthusiasm. Congratulations @w0olf! 20.000SBD to you!

Our third place winner of Trail by Comics “Kaiju” is @giuatt07 for his entry “Duo-Raptor , my Kaiju for Trialbycomics (ITA-ENG)”. I love how this turned out and commend the use of three point perspective. I’ve been brushing up my perspective studies lately, and seeing a two headed dinosaur moving over a metropolis was enough to clinch the third place prize. Congratulations @giuatt07. 10.000 SBD’s coming your way.

There were so many outstanding entries for “Kaiju” and as much as I’d love to share them all, this post would take ten minutes to load. Here are a few that fell in the merit category. All great artists that need to be on your radar.






Trial by Comics new theme is “Mecha”!

Of course it is! How couldn’t this be the theme to follow “Kaiju”! The follow up to Pacific Rim may look like an abomination, but it’s an amazing concept for Trial by Comics! This is a theme I’m not at all familiar with, but I drew up my best mech suit capable of defending a city from a destructive kaiju! I want to you all to do the same. 

Deadline for “Mecha” is Sunday, November 11th 5:00UTC 12:00a.m. CTS


• Up to three entries per trial round [weekly].

• Original artwork only [process documentation strongly encouraged]

• Winners will be chosen based on quality of work, submitted before deadline and ability to adhere to the weekly trial theme

• Must resteem the contest post you’re participating in

• Must include #trialbycomics hashtag [please note the change because this is how we will find your entry]

The winner will receive 25.000SBD. If you’d like to contribute to the prize or match my own, please contact me as a sponsor for future Trial by Comics contests, but note that sponsors cannot participate in that weeks #trialbycomics!

That’s it! Start drawing and get those entries in by next Sunday […you have just over a week]. Thank you again, all of you, for making Trial by Comics such a success in a very short amount of time. For more comics, art and photography, follow me here @kommienezuspadt!
