META: Class

I'm teaching my first-ever "How to Draw Super-Heroes" class at the library today (community service type event, not an actual school or anything) and I'm a little freaked out. So if my posting today is a little scattershot, my apologies.

I'll try to get the contest judged and done asap. If you have an idea for the next character contest, or if you'd prefer I stick to the schedule of alternating character designs with caption contests, please chime in below.

Otherwise I will stick to the schedule for this week, including Open Critique Day on Thursday.

Finally, don't forget you can vote in Friday Night Fights every day! So if your favorites aren't winning, head back in and toss another vote on the pile!

  1. Good luck with the class,Jeff. I’m sure you will do just fine. With the great tips and work you do on the site,you will be a natural. Again,congrats and good luck!

  2. In pondering a new Contest I came up with this:

    King Arthur in SPACE: Friday Night Fights: Possibly Three or Four Different Contests:

    Main Characters:

    King Arthur
    Guinevere
    Merlin
    Lady Of The Lake
    Mordred
    Morgan Le Fey

    Major Knights:

    Sir Lancelot
    Galahad
    Percival
    Kay
    Gawain
    Tristan

    Questing Characters:

    Knight With Two Swords
    Fisher King
    Green Knight
    The Questing Beast
    Elaine Of Estolat
    Messianic Arthur

    Family:
    Uther, Igraine, etc.?

  3. What about a character contest where you design a video game character? It could be anything along the lines of Mario, Sonic, Random Japanese RPG lady, like that.

  4. Another FNF Idea:

    Star Wars in a Fantasy Setting:

    The Emperor
    Darth Vader
    Yoda
    Obi-Wan
    R2-D2
    C3PO
    Jabba the Hut
    Luke
    Han Solo
    Chewbacca
    Leia
    Boba Fett

  5. A Few Contest Ideas:

    Unusual Power (A Character based on a Unique, never before thought of, Power)

    Science Fantasy (Science Fiction & Fantasy combined)

    Undead (Zombie, Vampire, Werewolf, Ghoul, Golem, etc.)

    Gangster (From Black Hander to Modern Street Thug: Yakuza, Mafia, Latin Kings, Bloods, Crips, Devil’s Angels, etc.)

  6. I’ve suggested it before, and I still think we should have a beauty pageant competition, where you have to make a triptych of the same character adorned for the swimwear, evening wear, and talent portions of the show. I guess this could also be a Friday Night fights idea.

  7. Me, Myself & I

    You know, I still like the Random Name Generator you did a few months back. I think it could also be recycled and put back into play.
