Trial by Comics winner for "Star Wars" and new fundamentals series announced!

in trialbycomics •  10 months ago


Thank you all for your patience in the Trail by Comics “Star Wars” theme winners announcement! It’s been an unbelievably busy couple of week and maintaining the care and attention this challenge requires is a balancing act. Thanks to @bryan-imhoff and @w0olf for helping to moderate the Trial by Comics Discord channels. “Whats that you say? Trail by Comics has a Discord channel?”. Why, yes, curious Steemian comic enthusiast, we do! Come join us!

Before announcing the winners of “Star Wars”, I’d like to thank @iamredbar for co-sponsoring the the reward pool for this week’s trial. @iamredbar is part of the Minneapolis @caffetto incubator, Magic: The Gathering player and all around good guy. If you aren’t already following him, make sure you do. Bountiful posts about nerd culture. They kind we love so much!


Additionally, I’d like to thank @customnature for co-sponsoring this week’s theme. @customnature has been on Steemit almost as long as me. He did one of the first daily categorized blog’s here called the “Daily Nature Fix”. He’s currently running a Steemian participation contest called “Abandoned Shit Weekly”, looking for abandoned treasures as far as Steemit can reach. Follow @customnature and consider entering aswcontest.

Thank you all for coming back to Trial by Comics throughout the New Year break. Again, I’m constantly in awe of the talent here in the Steemit community. Choosing winners for this thing is agonizing. Even with five merit awards, there are dozens of entries I would have liked to include. I just can’t. This post would take five minutes to scroll, though, but I encourage you to spin through the #trialbycomics hashtag and see the rest of the entries.


Alight! Without further adieu, here are your winners for “Star Wars”. Our first place winner is a new champion; @marty-arts for her entry “🔹 MY ART - entry for Trial by Comics”. What an outstanding example of the comic process, from concept, to building up a composition, to lines, tones and values. I’m also have such a soft spot for raw pencils […digital or otherwise]. Congratulations @marty-arts! 25.000 SBD’s to you!


@mr-monk is in second place with his entry, “Admiral Ackbar tribute / Experiment No. 13847291”. This was such an interesting take on the medium. I can’t believe this piece was painting on a pillow. It still has a genuine comic feel which is why I decided it still fit the contest format rules. Really thinking outside the box, man. Congratulations! 10.000 SBD’s to you courtesy of our co-sponsor, @customnature!


Third place this week was claimed by @cartoonistpandan for his entry “Trial by Comics : Star Wars (Darth Maul)”. My homeboy @cryptlectibles will certainly have my back on this as a winning entry. Dude, you’re style is straight out of the late 90’s, PITT, Lady Death, Spawn, The Darkness. All of my favorites. This drawing truly brought me so much nostalgia and joy. Thank you for entering. 5.000 to you courtesy of our co-sponsor, @iamredbar.

Here are some of the other entries from incredible Steemit comic artists that all deserve a follow if you’re looking to fill your feed with brilliant creators!

The next Trial by Comics is "Pencils"

So what’s next for Trail by Comics? We’re moving in to a three week comics fundamentals theme series. We’re starting with the essentials for comic book design. This first week’s theme is “Pencils”, and that’s exactly what it sounds like. This weeks only requirement is that it’s in pencil […traditional, digital, blue or redline], but we want to see the beginning construction of a character, world, concept or page. Do yourself a favor and Google images such as “Capullo pencils”, “Jim Lee pencils”, or “David Finch pencils”. 

Deadline for “Pencils” is Sunday, February 4th 5:00UTC 12:00a.m. CTS

Rules

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

• Original artwork only

• 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]

This week’s “Pencils” trial is being sponsored entirely by our very own talented Steemit artist @gvand. I love seeing her sketches and drawings in Trail by Comics. She won’t be able to participate in this week’s contest but man, do we ever appreciate her contribution to keeping Trail by Comics alive and well!

That’s it! Start drawing and get those entries in by next Sunday. 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!

My entry thus far

Would still like to add a few more scenes to the visual story.

·

Haha! that looks good - I hope you will end up inking it too.

·
·

Thank you very much. It would be interesting to see it the colors that I imagine it to be too. Lots of candlelight reflections on things

·
·

What is it he wants her to do in the last frame - drink or puke?

·
·
·
·

He is slicing her throat in this page.

·
·
·
·
·

Aha! Morbid!

It needs a soundtrack!

The style @cartoonistpandan brought was definitely awesome and completely reminded me of those huge Bane / Batman covers by Kelley Jones.

That Darth Maul is so gritty and big, really reminds me of how you hear a cover song that is completely different than the original but you now love it too for it's own merits. Loving Maul in this style, very cool.

Also, I hate when I browse quickly and miss details, like that Akbar on a pillow, big bonus points there!

·

Thanks man! :)really appreciate that!just playing the strokes and the character to be more eerie and sinister.Agreed!Kelly Jones strokes and style awesome and neat..a big fan too. :) Mr @kommienezuspadt mention your name and i check it out,cool..you have a large oldskool collectibles stuff..nice talking to you by the way @cryplectibles ..certainly i follow you then..

next challenge Greg Capullo for me is totally badass!! (Capullo work's)

If i got much time to do this..The Creech or The Punisher probably in my list..hopefully.. :)

·
·

Wow, that is bad ass as well, I thought I considered myself a Capullo fan but I have never heard of Creech. I'm reading about this book now on Wikipedia and it must have hit that sweet spot in my life when I just was not into comics in that era. I can't believe it came out in '97, looks like such a big fun character to draw. Can't wait to see what you do for this challenge, good luck!

Dramatic and expressionistic. Really good.

·
·

Thanks :) I had been trying to get that sense of drama and almost theatrical presence to this image.

·
·
·

Will Eisner actually compared Comics to theatre - he wrote a book about making comics that is like a personal poetics - more artistic theory and less writing course, but it is my favourite book about making comics.

Three moths since my last entry, its time...

·
·

Yea, I am working on somethings....

·
·
·

Dude! Thanks for the compliment! The comic community is the best.

These are outrageously incredible. If I were half as good as this, I would be the happiest person on planet earth. I guess I would work hard, setting these works as standard for myself.

·

Yeah, @tochai! These artists are great but you should definitely consider participating.

·

My art is poop and I try and enter to as many art based contests on Steemit as possible, have fun with it ;)

waoo .. I will definitely participate in the challenge.

Good friend, should the work be original?
Or do I have the option to grab some existing character?

·

It just has to be original art @juliolunar. It can be an existing character.

Is the sequential aspect important to you in this contest round?

That princess selfie! Love it! I wish I could draw haha

·

I'm thinking @artedellavita cosplay of that princess selfie is an order :P

·
·

Haha don’t tempt me Satan! 🖤
Give me a couple of days😉

Here is my entry: Knock Out. Digital Pencil

Thanks for making this contest! the next theme sounds really good, i'll be participating again!

·

Thanks for entering @ruricchi! I hope so! You really brought a different angle to the contest. It was refreshing.

Definitely this week of trial by comics was incredible, there are many excellent artists, congratulations to the winners and all participants!

·

Thank you again for sponsoring this week's Trial by Comics @gvand!

congratulations to the winners! those are some awesome artworks that uses different kinds of techniques. I really need to step up my game next time! 😔

So there is no theme to this trial? As long as its pencil? and we post our entries here in the comments? do we have to participate in every round? Are these questions explained somewhere in the post?

·

No, you don’t have to participate in every round @sistersartlab. No particular theme. Just pencils.

Congrats to all the winner! The new theme sounds interesting too!

Great! I have always said that I envy people who can draw. In my head there are ideas, but the embodiment is not possible because of lack of talent for drawing. But I can well bake)))

·

That’s great @naditinkoff! Are you following @gringalicious?

·
·

Yes, I am)

My entry
https://steemit.com/trialbycomics/@feynyala/entry-for-trial-by-comics-contest-pencil-woodelf

unfortunately resteem option seems to be disabled for posts older than 7 days :( It seems a little bit miscalculated to have reesteeming as a mandatory condition and the entry deadline open for longer than one can actually fulfill this condition. I am fairly new to steemit and didn't know about this so maybe these kind of important details should actually be mentioned in the description. Am I missing something here? Help would be greatly appreciated.

There really are some amazingly talented people in this community. In so many different fields too.

·

Totally agree @davekavanagh! The money brings people here I’m sure, but the community is what keeps you.
