The Unofficial 2000AD Sketch Competition #2: VOTING THREAD!
« on: 17 March, 2021, 07:27:33 AM »
It’s time for the Unofficial 2000AD Forum Sketch Comp #2 Voting Thread!

Please vote for your three favourites, clearly ranking them 1st, 2nd and 3rd. If you’re voting for one of multiple entries, please be clear which one you’re voting for. If you want to add an Honorary Mention for anyone’s entry, I’ll use those in the event of a tie-break situation.

Remember that, in addition to picking the theme for next month’s sketch competition, there is now a choice of TWO shiny prizes for the winner.

Choose between either: 1) a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Tower of Comps™ or 2) the original art for either my Chopper or Slaine entries. (There’s a fairly major cock-up that I erased digitally, within the time limit, on my first, so you can’t have that one!)



The entries, in alphabetical order, are…

Bolt-01


Colin YNWA #1


Colin YNWA #2


Dark Jimbo


Funt Solo


Jayzus B. Christ #1


Jayzus B. Christ #2


Jim_Campbell #1

Legendary Shark #1


Legendary Shark #2


Legendary Shark #3


Legendary Shark #4

This was a difficult one the choose from

Really good entries this time around!

1) Colin YNWA #2 (ape in a spacesuit) - apes win most things!
2) Dark Jimbo (Tyranny Rex) - great update on this character.
3) MIK (Armoured Gideon) - If Marvel can do The Iron Giant with a Sentinal, Tharg can do it with AG!

Very hard to choose - quality abounds.

1 - Dark Jimbo (by a whisker)
2 - Tomwe 2
3 - Jim 2

HM - Bolt

This is genuinely difficult to select a top 3, a good problem to have! I'm pleased to see so many entries.

1. Jim_Campbell #1 - Great humor, details & execution.
2. Tomwe #2 - A lot of characters packed in, very creative.
3. Dark Jimbo - I'm less familiar with Rex's character, but this art is awesome.

HM to everyone else, great efforts all-round.

I found it quite difficult to come up with a top three and you can probably tell from my cheat-worthy long list of honorable mentions, and then even the ones that didn't make the short list were challenging to discard...

1st: Tomwe #3: Why They Have To Be So Mean? - injecting pathos back into this character, and providing a built-in storyline that would actually have something to say to a younger reader - such a wonderful, creative entry. Thanks, Tomwe!

2nd: Woolly #2: Billy Savage - another one that builds a story into the sketch, so that we can imagine this as the cover to an opening episode of a longer series. Tharg - are you seeing this?

3rd: Dark Jimbo: [Tyranny Rexette] or [Teen Tyranny] - art so good. Tyranny often lashed out beyond what might seem reasonable - and I can understand that coming more from a teenage character than an adult, so this is perfect reboot material.

HMs [in order, so if you're using any for tie-breaking points, use the top one, please]
Jim Campbell #2: Chopper - very appealing image, clearly.
Colin YNWA #2 Ape in a Spacesuit - love the high concept, great image.
Jim Campbell #3: [Young Slaine] - another very appealing image.
Tomwe #2: Bag Company - top notch punnage deserves rewarding. Loved the kool stances.

---

I thought my *idea* was good, but I would have to hire an artist to realize it.

Tomwe 2 - Such a good idea, and so much detail achieved for a 45 min sketch. Plus little Protoid in the basket made me actually laugh out loud! I want to read this strip yesterday!

Jim Campbell 1 - I actually like Lil' Slaine the best of Jim's entries, but this is funnier!

Colin YNWA 1 - It's Torquemada as a penguin, fer cryin' out loud...!

HM - If I had to pick only one (and I'm going to, I'm afraid, purely because it's easier for me!) it'd be Wooly's Billy Savage. I can totally imagine the strip that would go along with this.

Thank you for all your votes so far, folks! I'm just bumping this back up the forum because I forgot to say in my initial post that the voting thread will close end of day, Monday 22nd March and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

If anyone else wants to get their votes in, now's the time! :)
