Many thanks to everyone who took the time to enter our Mother's Day Pop Quiz! We had some fun entries that really gave me a chuckle. Without further ado, here they are:
I had a hard time picking a winner. I liked LogosGal's book cover very much, but I thought it was more super-girlfriend related than super-mom. Similarly, I liked Myro's and LoneWolf6155's jokes a LOT but I had a hard time working through the arrangement of the word balloons. JohnnyGear's Rose Galaxy was sweet, but didn't quite have the visual impact I was hoping for. Mad Doctor's entry, like Skybandit's, was great but a little dark. Cliff's was probably the most cohesive and "Mother's Day" like of all, but I got more "Princess" than "Super" from it.
I liked Atomic Punk's entry, especially the pink bow on the rocket launcher and the funky background. The concept of both Shiboreth's and Gene's was good but I didn't feel like I'd "get" them from just the images. Herr D's was cute but it looked more like they were all just dudes standing around rather than a basket of severed heads.
Kytana's was adorable, particularly the combination of the mask with the PJs.
ManiacMick's entry was solid but the perspective on the book bothered me a little, and I felt like too much space was taken up with the table.
Which sort of left me with NHA247's:
It was thiiiis close to falling into the Gene/Shiboreth category of not quite getting it purely from the visual, but I thought the floating flowers gave it an edge. And I laughed at the idea of a super-powered guy giving his mom dirty laundry to do on Mother's Day.
So congratulations to NHA247, and another sincere thanks to everyone who participated.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
What a bad superboy, Gratulation Nha247!
And by the way, i think some pictures are very disgusting for a mothers day entry. Shame on you, people…
Yay my first win! Thanks Jeff!
@Jeff – I admit I was afraid of her not being super enough, which is why she had the cape LOL. Oh well Bre, my wife, loves it as her Mother’s Day Card from me and is forwarding it to all of the various Mother figures in her life, so all is good. 🙂
@Kytana – I agree with ya, some grisly Mother’s Day going on here.
I had no idea what to do with a contest like this. Bravo to the people entered and congrats to the winner!
Congrats, NHA247! The laundry part is pretty funny!
My original idea had been to show some sort of kidnapping survival aid that was on sale in the store for Mother’s Day, but I ran out of time to do the shelf and sale sign. Don’t know if that would have helped anyway; there were so many great ideas!
Congrats NHA247, very funny 🙂
🙁 I forgot to carve ‘Happy Mothers day’ into the planet. Thats what I get for playing fast and dirty 🙂
congrats nha; & woohoo–my first finalism-finale-finals? Finals. Rose Galaxy was great, too, by the way. A character of mine once wrote “a billboard of prearranged stars” and got in terrible trouble over it.
