SHORT & SWEET!
« on: Oct 09, 2018, 10:40 AM »
The seasons have turned and Autumn has arrived. With falling leaves, chilled breezes, and sweater vests, means new changes and that means new challenges!

The Short & Sweet format makes it's return for a new generation!

Short and sweet? Sounds delicious? It's damn tasty! A battle royale style event with artist comics that revolve around an interesting and challenging theme.
What that means is artists who participate will submit an original Artist Match type comic with a maximum of 5 pages. You will NOT be allowed to use any VOID characters for this event. The comics should reflect the spirit of the theme, however you choose to interpret the theme is all up to you!

So in keeping with the spooky season and the times, the theme we're going for this time is:

INKTOBER!!

Inktober? Well, what we mean is this, in keeping with the spirit of the event that takes the internet by storm annually, we're asking artists to craft a fully inked black and white comic. Thats's right, kids, no color! We're not here to take sides in the digital vs. traditional debate. What we encourage is that you challenge yourself! Take the opportunity to get messy with traditional inks, or digitally abandon all those pesky colors! Have fun as an artist and make something that works for you!

Need some inspiration? Then we recommend using one the many prompt lists that already exist for Inktober. Use those to guide your comic themes if you'd like, or any of the alternate themes like Goretober, the gloomy october sky's the limit!

Challenge yourself!

Requirements:
A black and white 'inked' comic (Gotta appreciate those inks!)
5 page maximum! (That’s why it’s called “Short & Sweet”, baby!)
No VOID characters, original Non-VOID works only!

Not meeting all of the requirements will result in disqualification.
The Winner will gain an official event title declaring you as the Inktober 2018 Champ for ALL ETERNITY.
Plus bragging rights, and maybe I’ll buy you a beer one day? Who knows?!

Signups begin Tuesday 9th, 2018 and will end on Saturday 13th.
Event will begin the following Monday 15th.
The event will last two weeks.

Best of luck to all!  I really wish it were later, when I have less going on, but there's always next year!
