META: Running late

Guys, I've been out of pocket all day, we got a nasty bug here with our dogs and I've been spraying our back yard with ammonia to try and kill it. In 104 degree Texas heat. I'm just blasted, and I still have quite a bit to do. So I will be posting both the results from the last contest and the new one, but not for a couple of hours yet at least. Before midnight, though!

In the meantime, cast your vote for whether you want a caption contest for old times' sake, or a new character design one. If the latter, would you want a "Nineties Image Character" theme (make a character who might have been published enthusiastically by the 1990's era Image line -- thigh pouches, names with "War" or "Blood" get bonus points) or a "Self Portrait" contest where you'd put your HM self portrait up side-by-side with an actual photo of yourself.

I'll count em up when I finally get done with the emergency animal spore patrol and go with that one.

Thanks for your patience! I wish I were more regular about this, too, waiting til this late at night blows.

    I vote for 90s Image creations. 😀

    I am all for another character contest. Those are fun. Although the self-portrait contest sounds kind of fun, too. I vote for one of those.

    This may be my crippling anxiety speaking, but that actual photo comparison conceit is a horrifying thought. Especially for a site where not only are comments unable to be deleted or edited by posters, but also the final product being posted by you and out of even our anonymous picture hosting hands.

    I’m just saying.

    Sorry bout your luck, hope everything goes well. Personally, I like the sound of the 90’s theme hero this week, and the caption contest next week. Alternating between the 2 should give you time to think up good ideas, for both. Also, being as good an artist as you appear to be, I wouldn’t mind seeing some of your art, submitted as a caption contest.

    90s Image contest for this week and caption contest next week. Alternating between the two like MartianBlue said is a good idea, too. People enjoy both, so why not do both? 😉 Good luck with the animal spore viral infection of uber death’n’doom, too.

    Whilst i like the sound of a self portrait I think I am going to stick RSC5 on this one and say 90’s

    I’m having far more fun than I would have imagined with the character contests. I’d be happy with either the self-portrait or 90s Image contest.

    I’m trying to make a universe full of people, and thanks to these contests, I’ve made characters I normally wouldn’t have, and have really liked the way they turned out. So for that in itself, thanks Jeff
