Pop Quiz Prize: Ms. Marvel

I drew the wrong version of Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers, for Myro as his prize for winning the first Pop Quiz contest (designing a fantasy sports logo). So I did a second one, and you get to see both -- lucky you!

    All I see is the dreaded Red X of Doom…

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    What’s the Red X of Doom?

  3. The Imp says:

    A big white empty box with a little red X in the corner. You know, the universal symbol for ‘I can’t see the picture’.


  4. Me, Myself & I says:

    It’s where the image doesn’t display, or in this case images plural. I see it do.

  5. CPrime says:

    I don’t even see the red x. I just see two tiny white squares.

  6. Jeff Hebert says:

    Probably some lingering effects of the DNS transfer. Now they’re gone for me too, I’ll see if I can do anything about it. Bummer.

  7. Jeff Hebert says:

    I thought “The Red X of Doom” was some sort of super-villain reference πŸ˜€

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    OK, I re-uploaded them and updated the post, they’re showing for me now. How about you?

  9. Bael says:

    They’re OK here and now.

    And in your defense, Red X was Robin’s super villain disguise in the Teen Titans cartoon.

    Very nice work,Jeff. I like the “cheekiness” of the first one(how did she fly around all day with a massive wedgie?). And I think the second one is outstanding. I love the pose and how her hair and sash are moving in the wind. Great work. Now I’m even sorrier I didn’t win!(Ha-Ha)

  11. Jeff Hebert says:

    On that note, what do you guys think about the prizes in general (assuming I ever do more prizes, I’m horrible about that)?

    Currently it’s either any item you want, or a portrait, to go into HM3. But hardly anyone ever chooses a portrait. Would a “Pick the sketch of the day subject” prize be better? I’m leery of doing a custom character sketch, those take a long time and can be kind of a hassle to get right.

    Or are there other prizes you think would be good? It can’t have any monetary value like a DVD or whatever or I start getting into headaches with UGO legal.

  12. Danny Beaty says:

    How about two items of our choice?

  13. Myro says:

    Dammit, I hate my phone. I was almost through typing an entry when it slipped out of my hand, fell on the floor, and popped its battery, causing me to lose everything. And touch-screen keyboards are no joy to work on.
    Again, Jeff, the pictures are awesome. I must admit, I am surprised that you did the second drawing, as I really did like the first one. The comment on your choice of costume originally was meant as an observation, not criticism, so if I gave you any indication whatsoever that I was less than satisfied with your original work, then I apologize.
    As for ideas for prizes, I got nothing. I get why people would rather ask to submit an idea for HM than get a portrait. The sketch idea is a better idea, I think. Speaking of which, will HM item suggestion continue after HM3 goes beta?
    Anyway, better get back to work, such that it is.

  14. Me, Myself & I says:

    I think for prizes people often have certain objects in mind to help them complete a certain character that they can’t get quite right without. The portrait would be cool but would come after all my favorite characters are exactly as I pictured them.

    I was wondering what was going to happen with the contests once the Beta version is out. Will they still continue, etc.?

  15. Me, Myself & I says:

    By the way, I like the first image but the second image far surpasses the first in my opinion. The motion intrinsic in the image of the second is really good.

  16. Jeff Hebert says:

    I don’t see any reason why the contests should stop either with the beta or full release version. It’ll always need more items no matter what. And since it’s (probably) going to be online only, it can be constantly updated without upset. That was part of the problem with 2.x, I felt like since it was on all these CDs out there, my ability to update it was constrained.

  17. Jeff Hebert says:

    No worries at all Myro, you were a very gracious gentleman about the whole thing. I felt personally like I didn’t deliver what I felt was the best I could do, so I wanted to make it right in my own mind more than anything.

  18. Myro says:

    Jeff, chalk it up to being from Canada. I, like many of my countrymen, feel a compulsion to apologize for things I haven’t actually done.

    @Myro: Whereas down here in the lower 48, we feel a compulsion to do things we should apologize for. But we don’t, actually.
