2000AD Forum Sketch Competition #3: ENTRIES THREAD
« on: 02 April, 2021, 11:17:32 AM »
And what rough comp, its hour come round at last, slouches toward the forum to be born…?

Why, it's the third monthly sketch comp! This time out, it's SIDEKICKS

Last month's winner, Dark Jimbo explains:

Quote
Sidekicks! They're the last word in loyalty, but they don't always get as much of the limelight as they deserve. From Wulf and the Gronk to Walter and Maria; from Ro-Jaws to Ukko, Purity Brown to Venus Bluegenes; to Dredd's whole supporting cast of Judges and Dante's Romanov siblings, there should be plenty to choose from! Approach the brief however you want, but let's give a little love to the B-teams!

You've had a week to get your thinking caps on, now you have one week to get your sketches in. The competition will close to entries end-of-day Friday April 9th.

You can render your entries in the medium of your choice, and you can enter as many times as you want, but please don't spend more than 45 minutes on each sketch.*

There will be a GLITTERING PRIZE for the winning entry. As well as getting to choose the theme for Sketch Comp #4, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Mountain of Comps™, and a signed Nick Percival print of Ol’ Stoney Face hisself thanks to the generosity of Colin YNWA.

Get sketching, folks!

*Abandoned attempts don't count, so you can take as many stabs at getting an idea right as you need, and no one is standing over you with a stopwatch, but the 45 minutes starts when pencil/pen/crayons/fingers hit paper on the version you want to submit.

To kick us off, here's a 40-ish minute Ukko — the usual brush pens and ProMarkers.

Afternoon all and happy Good Friday. I got these done yesterday, both clocking in at 40mins. I decided to go old school physical media this time out with fine liners, copic shades & a sharpie.

Look forward to seeing who else gets featured!

Entry 1) Feral the stront. I was always a fan & disliked the way he was dispatched by Wagner & Ezquerra.



Entry 2) The Gronk! This one is more recognisable, and I was getting into the groove.

Tomwe - that Gronk shot is gorgeous. The look of joy is priceless.

Oh I see... so its going to be like that again is it... well another competition where from those early entries its already looking like a nightmare to select a winner. All we need now is someone to come along and post a picture of Kid Knee... nah no one would ever do that would they...

Anyway here's my first, hope for a couple more before we are done...

EDIT - don't mind me, just trying to post something here. Anyone know how to make a pic look a bit smaller when I post it on this thread?  Mine always look huge!
