Mr & Miss ComicGenesis Contest

For discussions, announcements, non-technical questions and anything else comics-related or otherwise that doesn't fit in any of the other categories.

I mean, if you want to vary from that, I can't argue with things like prizes... people like prizes... but simpler seems better. It's also not just about who is the sexiest or whatever, it's who we want to represent us.



I like the formal and lingerie categories, but I think the talent thing would be pretty cool too. And I would opt to up the number of questions so there's more room for silly ones.

I guess what the prizes/winnings comes down to is this. Do we want just one Mr, one Miss, and one Thing winner? Or one winner of each of those for each of the categories mentioned in the first post(face, body, personality, so 9 winners total)? I think the latter would be cool especially if we had enough participation which it seems we are going to.



Let's have a vote then.

1. How many characters is each participant allowed to enter?
1. Up to three (one for each of the categories if opted to do so)
2. Up to three (same as above) from each comic the artist makes if the artist so chooses

2. What are the categories to be won?
1. Mr, Miss, and Thing ComicGenesis (three winners total)
2. Mr, Miss, and Thing ComicGenesis, with winners for the categories of Best Face, Best Body, and Best Personality (nine winners total)
3. Mr, Miss, and Thing ComicGenesis, as in option 2, with the additional general Mr, Miss, and Thing overall (TWELVE winners total)
4. Everyone wins because it's the effort you put in that matters <3 :shucks:

3. What would winners win? (This would probably tie in to how many winners are allowed)
One thing here- if it gets down to it, we could always have a group of a few people willing to make fanart for the winners. I for sure would be willing to be part of such a group.
1. Bragging Rights and the admiration of the community
2. Fanart of their comic by participants who are willing to do so
3. Fanart of their winning character by participants who are willing to do so

4. For the interview, should responses be written out in script format or drawn as a comic?
1. Drawn as a comic, so keep the number of questions small, and allow us to watch the character answering
2. Written in script format, to allow more questions and greater insight to the character



I am pleased with the amount of people tentatively participating.

Kudos for taking up this task. I'll consider the options and post my replies later.

Short answer: 1 One character per comic per gender; 2 Mr and Ms. Keenspace; 3 Pride; 4 Whatever the fuck you feel like doing.


tl:dr answer:
1. Splitting your entry between two or three characters doesn't make any sense and runs counter to the beauty pageant format we're limiting ourselves to here. I don't see the harm in one cartoonist making a submission for two of her comics for the same category; at worst she'll just be splitting her own votes.

2. We can drop Thing Keenspace. It wasn't all that popular anyway. Similarly, if we could expect, say, 50 submissions, having more categories might make sense. As it is crowning just Ms. and Mr. would cut the clutter and ultimately be more satisfying.

3. I guess who cares, because no one will be stopped from providing fanart to the winner if they so choose. But this is just for fun.

4. See no reason this needs to be anything other than the cartoonist's own discretion. I'd be OK with some thing like 5 or 6 questions in addition to the talent portion, I guess.

Also feel like we should standardize the drawings. I'd prefer formal wear and swimsuit, not formal wear/winter atire and swimsuit/lingerie.

1. How many characters is each participant allowed to enter?
1. Up to three (one for each of the categories if opted to do so)
If you really think more than one of your dudes is worthy of being Mr CG, enter a different one next year.
2. What are the categories to be won?
1. Mr, Miss, and Thing ComicGenesis (three winners total)
The highest quality entry should win. Besides, not all "Things" have faces or bodies... or personalities.
3. What would winners win?
3. Fanart of their winning character by participants who are willing to do so
If someone's already offered a prize, why not? Besides, if there's only 3 winners, worse comes to worst Cuddly can do all the art.
4. For the interview, should responses be written out in script format or drawn as a comic?
I'm for leaving it up to the artist, but I think fewer questions are better. This works best with low barriers to entry (two pinups and ~3 questions).

I agree.

Good points from all, I'll wait to let a few others ring in with their thoughts and then I'll make an official thread up this weekend.

Ditto.

I'd be willing to do fanart for the winner, why not.

I need experience making my characters attractive, so I'd like to sign up. Speaking of experience, I don't think we should shy away from practise. I'd be down for awarding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, but in the spirit of compromise I say we prioritise it respectively: Everyone gives 1st props, 2nd is optional and 3rd can only be done if 1st and 2nd are also provided (no group shots).

For comics that take place in a world that lacks formal wear.

Gang:

I'm all for it. I'm getting back into the game, so a little publicity wouldn't hurt.

When would this commence?

Thx.

Maximum 3 entries, each with 2 pinups and 3 questions? Sounds reasonable.

This is not a world I would ever vote for.

A world that has no formal wear is likely the one that has no pagent either, right? Inconsistency is a given.

Nah, a world without clothes could easily have a beauty contest.

Oh, wow! Neat. Who chooses the interview questions? My comic takes place on an alternate history Earth, so an Abe Lincoln question may not go over too well. :(
Now I need to figure out whether I should draw a genderless golem in a speedo or in a bikini . . .
