: AUGUST ART COMP - DREDD'S DEAD, BABY, DREDD'S DEAD
: CrazyFoxMachine 01 August, 2016, 09:37:30 PM
After narrowly avoiding a "Summer Offensive" theme July's winner Adrian Bamforth has plumped for something rather topical:

THE DEATH OF DREDD.

The eldster isn't getting any younger. He's beaten more perps than you've sold hot cakes but one of the real narrative thrills of Dredd is the real-time element. As we sag, Dredd sags and one of these days you can be certain he'll go the way of all flesh. So how will he meet his untimely demise? Choking on a hottie? Dog vulture? Mutant potato? In a hail of bullets or just tripping over? WHY DID YOU HAVE TO WEAR YOUR BOOTS SO TIGHT, DREDD?!

There will be a GN straight from the nerve centre for the winner of course, and one for Tharg's Choice - and there will also be a bonafide 2000 AD droid choosing their favourite entries! All entries will be viewable here, on our dedicated FB page, and also on the official 2000 AD Tumblr and Twitter!

Rules for the art comp are these:

- It must fit the theme.

- You can enter as many times as you like but bear in mind it will split your vote so it may not be worth it.

- All entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition - so nothing you've done for anything else.

- You can enter either here or by directly putting it on our FB wall here: https://www.facebook.com/2000adartcomp/

YOU HAVE UNTIL THE 28TH OF AUGUST WHEN WE SHALL JOIN THE VOTING CHOIR INVISIBLE

Sort of. We did "Final Days" - Death of 2000 AD Characters in September 2012 (https://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php?topic=36808.0) and although Dredd featured heavily I think this is meant to dovetail with discussions had about it recently.

Correct. You might be referring to This Is the End, Beautiful Friend... from August 2008 (http://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php?topic=23143.15) which is from the Jim era and as such I don't have a record of it being a theme - although in the 2012 dead character thread I mention people being annoyed that it's been a theme before. Perhaps it was you then as well  :-\ WE'RE JUST TWO LOST SOULS SWIMMING IN A FISH BOWL.

YEAR AFTER YEAR.

Either way - this is distinct enough for me being as the previous two (!) times this has come up in the last ten years it was more a multi-character type thing.

CFM is correct… the 'This Is The End' comp wasn't specifically death-themed, but was just about the final episode/page/panel of your favourite strip. Admittedly, there was a LOT of death, but that wasn't the actual theme…

"The Jim Era."

We don't talk about the Dark Times. I'm looking forward to this. As the only thing I could think of is photo of a Judge Dredd figure in a pile of tomato sauce (or ketchup for our American friends), then I will - as ever - be a passive observer.

I think that's a poor attitude, JD. Pete's entries always raise at least a smile and, to me, are as valid as any others. I don't think he's insulting or belittling anyone else in the slightest.

Maybe if Pete sawed his own ear off whilst dumping and drawing it would prove his worth as a serious artist...

That's a stupid thing to say.

I adore what other artists do, here and beyond. I've been doing a 2000AD cover art blog for over seven years now, often featuring art from the fine folks here. I started the 2000AD Messageboard advent calendar to share fan art of the people on here. I love and appreciate the effort people put in.

I have never, and will never, be disparaging of others' art. My SELF-depreciating manner is a very conscious way of saying I know MY art is naff, but I still would like to enter the compo. It is in no way a reflection of how I view others' work or the effort they put in.

Do my entries need to be of a certain standard now before I enter? How long do I need to spend on them before they are considered worthy of entry? Am I not allowed to enter just for fun now or is this somehow disrespectful to other artists?

Sigh...

Pete.  That previous entry of yours?  Chopper?

That made me incredibly angry.  I mean really properly angry.

That comp had some truly brilliant entries, of all skill levels, and they had to sit alongside your toilet graffiti.

I kept my mouth shut.  Mostly because I just couldn't be bothered getting into an endless argument with people on the internet.

CFM called you out on it and hey, guess what?  People on the forum turned on him.  So much so that he quit the comp.

And here we are, once again, with another "this ain't shit" style post.

How often on this forum has an artist spoken at length about what this line of work takes out of you.  The long hours, the psychological cost, the constant doubts and the rare moments of joy.  People on this forum, myself included, are literally dedicating their lives to this pursuit.

I don't expect everyone to like what I do.  I certainly don't expect anyone to kiss my ass.  But for goodness sake can you just show the slightest bit of respect for the effort it takes?

And now for a quick critique of your entry. 

No.  It isn't good enough.  DO BETTER!

The art comp has always been open to ALL levels of artistic endeavour and has a rich history of superb artistry and equally non-artistic but humorous entries. Good natured but robust piss taking also has a strong tradition not only in the art comp but the forum at large.

I think you really need to get some perspective with your approach to a forum based art competition that is supposed to be fun James  Dilworth. To say that you are personally affronted to see Pete's entry alongside your own is not only contrary to the values of the forum but also displays a rather unattractive arrogance on your part.

Dilworth, my entry only took me about an hour and I did it sitting in sweat pants and a shirt with egg stains on it. I'm pretty sure I farted a couple of times while I was "drawing" it, too. There's no way it's going to win, which I knew before I even started doing it.

Yes, but this isn't a professional or aspiring artists only competition is it? It's open to all. Good art WILL get noticed and I'm sure Tharg is intelligent enough to know the difference between who is taking it seriously and who isn't. However, I believe there are submission guidelines for those who seriously want to make it, I don't think the art competition is mentioned in them...

Oh, and please spare me the angst of the struggling artist too. I appreciate how difficult is to make it and have never said, or implied, any other. I will say again, I would never knock anyone's art or effort. I was not disparaging at all about anyone's work or effort other than my own, I'm sorry if this offends you.

Thanks for the critique by the way, I'll bear it in mind. Holy heck though, you're not half building the tension for your entry this month, it's going to have to be stellar!

Sorry folks but I just can't abide an attitude that spits on hard work.

James I'm sorry but it doesn't, it just doesn't. You might feel it does and there's nothing I can do to change that, but I would think most people would see it for what it is. Its someone engaging with the forum in a fun and entertaining way. Whether someone is entertained by it is entirely up to them and there is no judgement either way. Pete is continuing finding a ways to show people that the art comp and everything else on the board, is open to all and all about having a good time.

Pete's warmth wit and humour are a pillar of what this board means to me and I'm sorry that you don't see that. That's cool, that's for you, but can I just say I very nearly placed with a picture of my hand coloured in with some action figure props stuck onto it. The art comp has always, always been about everyone who wants to take part doing so. That some people happen to produce some truly wonderful pieces of 'proper' art isn't in anyway shape or form deminished by the work of anyone else.

I stand in awe of almost everything James submits to this competition, and I chuckle loudly at almost everything Pete submits. It's win-win from my triple-zero-rated artistic level, long may they both continue to contribute.

My word fallout has spread far from just this forum. Pete I am loving your lack of effort. The art comp is open to all. Not all of us can be talented MF's. I found Pete's comment funny, as am sure was intended. Grow up and get a sense of humour. This is the sort of reason I took my (now very long) sabbatical from this forum, I just needed to check out the furor.

Woolly, that is class. So many great pieces both in terms of creative/funny ideas and wonderfully drawn/coloured art. Just gets better and better!

Not to flog a dead judge even further but I think everyone (else) loves Pete's entries and I am 100% certain Pete does not submit them with any intent of actually winning the competition. And CFM is a lovelier and more mature chap than most of us so I won't pretend I speak on his behalf, but I just went over the Chopper threads and James I think you have really misread and misrepresented what went on with the infamous Choppers piece. Certainly, based on what's readable to all, CFM certainly didn't "call him out" on anything and no one 'turned on him' for doing so. No one ever turns on CFM! He's crazy like some kind of machine fox, you wouldn't dare.

Your stuff is pretty good though James.

The only way forward seems to be that every entry to the Art Comp comes with a sworn affidavit from a reliable witness, certifying that a set amount of time and furrow-browed earnestness was spent on the piece.

That, and a video of the artist weeping bitterly over the immeasurable emotional toll the artistic process took on their mortal soul.

Perhaps it's the massive slew of people taking the piss out of him? He said some pretty misjudged things but we are ALL guilty of that from time to time. Yes, he's quit the competition and the forum for the time being. No, I don't blame him. Catley neither.

One of the things I've always loved about this forum is the range of opinions you get, some dumb, some trollish, but there's nearly always another side. On this matter people have been rather grimly moblike and honestly for me the overreaction against what he said has almost far exceeded the original offence caused. We all like Pete but I'm sure he's had much worse.

Shark, you can't have that entry. People using his avatar to mock him in a place where he may see it are bullying him. It's as simple as that.

On this matter people have been rather grimly moblike and honestly for me the overreaction against what he said has almost far exceeded the original offence caused.

In this case, I can't agree. I don't think many people were taking the piss, I think they were disagreeing with him, on the grounds that he was trying to unilaterally police the comp, on the basis of talent and effort expended. At any point, he could have said "Fair enough, I don't agree," or even, "I disagree so strongly that I won't enter the comp again," but this deleting-all-your-art-and-unfriending-everyone-on-FB-associated-with-the-forum response is a massive overreaction by anyone's standards.

We've had plenty of talented artists submit pieces that, by their own admission, were rushed or half-finished due to time constraints. Should they have been disallowed because James didn't think they showed enough effort? Your admirable desire to be even-handed and fair does you credit, Owen, but on this occasion I don't  think James was voicing a minority opinion and was unjustly shouted down, I think he was just plain wrong.

I don't see a 'mob' here, I see plain evidence of how fondly the art comp is viewed by very many forum members, not just those who participate, and an admirable collective desire to stand up for the principle that it should always be open to those who don't take it that seriously.

As I believe I said elsewhere, Pete's entries into the art and story comps are firmly in the Viz trend of toilet humor. Ridiculous and offensive yet entirely light hearted, in a competition such as this where the forumites vote for a favorite, I've noticed Pete's entries excel in the H/M department, fitting considering their content and attitudes.

Plus, you know. Art should be for for everyone.

I do love Dilworth and everything he's done for the community, both large and small, but I couldn't agree with his stance over this particular affair.

Now, back to the gorgeous art...

Me too, I don't get the time to draw that often, and I like that a competition like this gets me thinking about different subjects and ideas. It gives me some sort of purpose for drawing every month, even if I rarely get the chance to get anything done to submit, I'm always thinking of ideas to submit, every month.

I'd rather be misguidedly even-handed than think that "act like a dick, get called out for acting like a dick. Throw your toys out of the pram. I hope he calms down and reconsiders," is a response, seen by James that would genuinely make him (or anyone really) think, "oh fair enough I'll give those guys another chance."

He probably should have done a lot of things, he definitely shouldn't have said what he did but the massive tidal wave of cumulative abuse aimed at him after the fact isn't going to change anything beyond making  other folk that aren't him really consider whether this is the nicest atmosphere in which to put their artwork. I think more so than if his original comment was left to die in embarrassing silence.

Again - I can't change that. What I can do is take serious stock about the function of the competition and think about whether this echo chamber of in-jokes and bullish banter is genuinely the best place to center it. The really grim reality that old forumers have even rushed back in from the wilderness just to get some swift kicks in to an already one-sided fight because they read about it on Facebook is ... really not showing our best side. Certainly not as a loose social group but definitely not as a fandom.

If the spirit of the art comp is letting everyone of all abilities have a go which everyone has been so bold to defend then honestly we need to think about the POV of "everyone" not just people who know and are endeared to Pete and our 'way'.

Again - I'm not defending what was originally said, I'm just providing another perspective.

Quite right Mister Fox. Every entry should be required to submit exactly how much blood, sweat and tears went into it. Although you could be opening a big can of worms whether aforementioned should be measured in empirical or metric units. Just so long as there's no faecal matter involved eh?

I was going to enter this month but now I'm afraid it might hurt Mister Dilworth's precious feelings.

This is in jest, just in case you didn't realize.

Fox, you've done amazing things for this comp. From Tharg's choice to Droid's choice, you've taken it to the next level. Don't let one little tantrum ruin it for everyone else.

James point was misguided in the main, that I'll agree with; but there needs to be a measure in our reaction.  A cascade of opprobrium just (to me) isn't what we, as a forum, are about. The measure of reaction just doesn't sit easily with me. Z

This post isn't directed at Owen, it's just my thoughts about the whole silly business.

It'd be ridiculous if we lost the art competition because of this stupid little incident. It really is, or should be, a storm in a very small teacup.

Yep, to be honest, I really didn't appreciate how James responded to my initial post or indeed to my polite and measured subsequent responses. I'm sure you've all noticed that I'm not a budding artist. I have a young family with whom I love spending time with and a job role that takes up a significant amount of my time. The reality is, I simply don't have the time to pour hours and hours into my entries but still enjoy the chance to be creative. James was incredibly rude and definitely having a go at the wrong person if he thinks I would disrespect anyone or am not in awe of the amazing talents and efforts of others. However, I'm an adult (despite the childishness of my entries) and it's certainly nothing that I lost any sleep over and he definitely wouldn't have stopped me entering next month, should the topic tickle my fancy. I do hope I see him at a con so we can hopefully giggle about this nonsense, have a pint and get on with being nerds.

I am very sad that James has gone, I genuinely appreciated his contributions. However, I feel I must say if he wants to be a professional artist, and it certainly looks like he has the potential to be, he needs a thicker skin and a more professional manner. If he's going to walk away or have public, foul mouthed tantrums every time he sees something he doesn't like or agree with, he's going to make life difficult for himself in any profession. Especially something as 'public' as that of a comic artist.

I think Jim has hit the nail squarely on the head when he says people responded the way they did because they genuinely care about the fairness of the competition.  It is definitely one of the most important threads here and I feel we'd be cutting off our noses if it were to go. Please, let's not lose it because of my warped sense of humour.

Finally, this bit IS directed at Owen - I'm truly sorry I've caused you headaches again sir, you're a lovely bloke and it's the last thing I'd want to do. If I don't see Andy Lambert's, Steve Longdon's or indeed James Dillworth's entries each month, this will be a much poorer place.

EDIT - as I was typing this drivel, Uwe de Witt's entry popped up. That is ALL the evidence we need to keep this fine competition!

Again: he wasn't singled out. He was just plain wrong. He got 'savaged' because he was being an elitist dick, seeking to exclude entries that didn't meet his exacting standards.

What so if we don't agree with someone we're not allowed to express our opinion, or should I not say that?

Its all a total shame, but I think most of the commentry here has been pretty reasonable and some of the art commenting pretty good spirited mikey taking. There's a certain sadness that one thing we seem to pretty much agree on still courses a bit of a mini-ruck (which of course I'm not helping by sustaining!).

James Dilworth was out of order, nowt dramatic and I don't think the response has been overly dramatic either. Yes there is volume, and that will no doubt have made James feel a little put upon BUT lets not get silly and call it 'being fucking thrown to the wolves'

Go back read the thread I'm not sure we've been a baying mob and certainly Pete has tried to give an honest decent response.

Maybe the phrases like 'elitist dick' serve only to exacerbate the situation Jim.  I'm a big supporter of this forum and am as averse as anyone else to the censoring of input. We need to consider what has happened and work towards comity.... I simply do not like the prejoratives, and less, the frankly negative direction this wonderful thread has taken over the past two months.  Z

I'd rather be misguidedly even-handed than think that "act like a dick, get called out for acting like a dick. Throw your toys out of the pram. I hope he calms down and reconsiders," is a response, seen by James that would genuinely make him (or anyone really) think, "oh fair enough I'll give those guys another chance."

My last comment on this sorry mess: I think that's unfair. My "act like a dick" comment may have been overly harsh, but came off the back of James' massive overreaction of (apparently) unfriending everyone on FB associated with the forum and deleting all his artwork.

At that point, he had chosen to inflict collateral damage on a scale unprecedented in my recollection of previous forum strops and "dick" was a fairly mild expression of my opinion of his behaviour. I say this as someone who has been on the sharp end of some pretty strong disapproval from various quarters of this forum's membership.

With that, I'll shut up and hopefully we'll get back to seeing more entries. I'll abandon the one I was doing, which would have been mildly amusing about three pages ago, and see if I can come up something less facetious before the deadline.

Hopefully, the forum will judge it to be Dilworthy. *

I hope he calms down and reconsiders," is a response, seen by James that would genuinely make him (or anyone really) think, "oh fair enough I'll give those guys another chance."

Another chance to do what exactly? What he said was ridiculous and people, rightly, pointed that out in a generally even handed manner.

He probably should have done a lot of things, he definitely shouldn't have said what he did but the massive tidal wave of cumulative abuse aimed at him after the fact isn't going to change anything beyond making  other folk that aren't him really consider whether this is the nicest atmosphere in which to put their artwork. I think more so than if his original comment was left to die in embarrassing silence.

There was no abuse. Just utter disbelief and sarcasm. And the ONLY member of this forum to make disparaging comments about someone else's artwork is James himself.

Again - I can't change that. What I can do is take serious stock about the function of the competition and think about whether this echo chamber of in-jokes and bullish banter is genuinely the best place to center it. The really grim reality that old forumers have even rushed back in from the wilderness just to get some swift kicks in to an already one-sided fight because they read about it on Facebook is ... really not showing our best side. Certainly not as a loose social group but definitely not as a fandom.

I might not be very active on the forum these days, but I regularly stop by to read what's going on and I love the Art Comp and admire ANYONE who enters it. I didn't come by to get some swift kicks in, merely to humourously draw attention to the TOTAL ABSURDITY of the argument.

If the spirit of the art comp is letting everyone of all abilities have a go which everyone has been so bold to defend then honestly we need to think about the POV of "everyone" not just people who know and are endeared to Pete and our 'way'.

Again - I'm not defending what was originally said, I'm just providing another perspective.

Here we go. Nobody say anything that isn't entirely vanilla in case someone is "triggered". Are you suggesting some sort of censorship? Where will that end? Nowhere good I predict.

The only abuse and bullying I saw came from James Dilworth and was directed at Pete Wells. His position is indefensible.

I sincerely hope the art comp continues as it has done and isn't thrown off the rails by the, frankly, incomprehensible opinions of one person, and I hope James calms down a bit, stops taking himself so seriously and decides to come back to the forum.

Not really sure I can follow this logic. Man makes utterly awful statement about who should be allowed to post their art based on whether or not he thinks they've expended enough effort (and doubles down when given the opportunity to recant) but nobody should criticise him because doing so will make people feel uneasy about posting their art?

Please can we not throw our hands up about the spectre of censorship AGAIN. This is a private company's forum, free speech is not a right anyone enjoys here, and moderation is extraordinarily light and sensitive. Stuff that appears here has to adhere to basic and broad guidelines, and the guiding principle would be mutual respect. However, all that aside, bieng considerate of peoples' feelings is not censorship, it's decency.

James said something silly, as each and every one of us has at one or (many) more times, reactions snowballed in an initially very amusing but ultimately cumulatively unpleasant way, as so often happens online. No-one wanted him to leave, or to stop being the terrific contributor to this competition that he always is, any more than they wanted Pete to stop lowering the tone in his delightful way. Acknowledging that things went awry and looking to fix them is not censorship.

Perhaps censorship was the wrong word to use, but I certainly don't think anyone can be accused of being inconsiderate of anyone's feelings in the entries they submit. Attempting to pre-empt any kind of offense is where dreadfulness will arise.

I was initially a bit amused/bemused by all this, but sadly all amusement left the situation when James left the board.

For the record, no offence was meant by my entry (hope youre reading this James, it wasnt supposed to be a personal dig) and im more than happy for it to be discounted from the voting.

Maybe an idea to bring voting forward on this one, have a month off, and restart the art comp again in september?

I think everyone was pretty nice about their disapproval other than James. I think some of us are being far too nice about what was a pretty horrible series of things to say because, on this forum, those nasty things were only said by one person, and now those nice people feel bad for being part of the crowd. Sometimes it's the 'little guy' who needs to say sorry.

In an ideal world this would have been a moment for self-reflection and "Alreet ya got me ya bastiches, I take it back!"

I doff my cap to all the entries, wherever they were produced  ::)

Here's my entry for the comp in one of the toughest months in ages. I couldn't think of an appropriately epic way for Dredd to die, but instead I thought what with all the talk of Rico taking over from Dredd when he does take the long walk in the sky, it would be quite neat to have the classic scene from prog 30(?) of Dredd carrying Rico reversed:

Bamforth leaps ahead into my No. 1 with that one. Supoib. DeWitt's is clever and beautifully rendered, and Trevor Denham's is completely insane and wonderful. What a great crop!

Blimey the standard is high this month.

I've killed Dredd so many times in these art comps over the years (six times at least) I've been racking my brains to come up with death number seven.

Had a couple of ideas and as luck would have it I've been beaten to it.

More thinking to be done.

I couldn't think of an appropriately epic way for Dredd to die

The crime: Wearing your judicial shoulder pads on the wrong shoulders.
The sentence: Death!

That is absolutely outstanding, Mike. Can we have a higher-res version so we can get a closer look at it?

I think we need a top 20 this month rather than a top three. Choosing a trio will be impossible. The HR list is going to be a long one.

Agreed; I think we'll need at least a top five, and even then putting them in order is going to be tough.

It's a pity James won't be entering, but even without him the standard this month is even higher than usual. I'm starting to feel like I picked the wrong month to get my pencils out...

2000ad fans are known to be a discerning bunch, so thanks for your nice comments. It's obvious that everyone has upped their game this month, probably inspired by a few excellent doodles posted at the very start of the comp. And there's still time for more entries...

For Echidna and anyone else who's interested, there's a 300dpi version of Ambushed in my Dropbox.

I forgot to put in the caption that my idea was that Dredd will just go and go 'til he's too old to do it any more, and some random encounter is the end, hence the walking stick.

I really struggled to imagine Dredd dying. What could possibly kill Dredd? I did attempt drawing 100 perps fighting Dredd, but that was just hard. Then I remembered how Omar died in The Wire, and how it was a shock because he was nearly invincible and just plain stubborn too... so I imagine Dredd would die in a boring mundane way, alone in a Mega City alley.
Stepped out of my comfort zone to produce this one, took me some time but it was definitely fun!

Great minds think alike, so they say.  And so do mine and Pete's!

This was done by my son, aged 12, in something called Pivot Animator.  I think he did a great job, though naturally I've put him in the juve cubes for a 20 stretch for forgetting Dredd's shoulder pads and not being able to do the visor right.

Still, I think he did a great job and I hope you enjoy it.

Whatever did happen to Ratty?  Shall have to dig out the Ratfink floppy and see if there's any info in there (okay, I seem to remember the original Ratty went into the Pa Angel Mark One Super-Scream Torture Machine, but surely there are descendants - quite a few if my own experience of rat-keeping is anything to go by).
