Flashpinup - Animation

Been watching flashpinup put out animations for a while and I decided last weekend it was finally time to work out a project with him.

Of course...blogger's not great with flash animations, so let's just link to the original.

It's cool being able to design a branching commission finally - for a first shot it turned out really well - and we'll look at more complicated designs in the future.

Stay tuned!

South Pacific Follies #21

Apologies for the break in posting folks - unavoidable work conflicts.  Don't worry more new projects to post this weekend too!

The First Caption Challenge - Results!

Well, I've got to say, this first caption contest has produced some really interesting entries. 

It's been a difficult choice for some of the categories....but these ones just wowed me.

- Best single caption - Any single caption using a one-character pic. ($25)

Really like the use of this pic and the ending concept.  TG-Spain

- Best group caption - Any single caption using a pic with one or more characters. ($25)


- Best caption sequence - Any set of two or more captions following a sequence/storyline (can use single or multiple character pics - no restrictions on which pictures from reference selection are used) ($50)

Without a doubt....Had to be the Brooke sequence by Furco.

- Best original design and caption - A little different - this category is looking for the really weird/unique/far-out concepts - I will accept minor photo-editing as well as potentially use of pics not included in my reference file - but must be approved on a case-by-case basis.  Must still conform to all other contest rules. ($35)
Love the design and formatting here - beautiful design by Mindy Z:
And finally:  
- Best overall caption(s) - The one that really blows me away (single or sequence). ($50)
It's a big 'un, but the story really works well with the pic.  By Catfish.

Caption Challenge Entry - TG-Spain

Our last entry for this first Caption Challenge comes from TG-Spain.

A beautiful little piece.

Caption Challenge Entry - TFGhost

Another caption for the Challenge from a photo-manipulator I've been following for a while - TFGhost.

A very nice take on an interesting photo.  Good use of captioning too.

Caption Challenge Update

Just for clarification, the deadline for Caption Challenge Entries is 1 AM Hawaii Standard Time, 22 May.  Midnight always seems to throw me off as far as a beginning of the day/end of the day timeframe.

Caption Challenge Entry - Furco

Wow!  Just received a veritable slew of caption contest entries by fur-caption fan furco.

These ones cover pretty much all the categories.  So we'll start with the individual caps.

Sequences can be seen after the break - we've got a real doozy of a story here folks:

Caption Challenge Entry - Mindy Z

Just received a sweet entry from a captioner I've been following for quite a while now - Mindy Z.

I love her style and formatting - I'd say it's a beautiful entry to the competition.

Caption Challenge Entry - Catfish

For our first entries in this Caption Challenge, we have two single pic entries by Catfish.  A very nice start I've got to say.

Expect to have more entries posted tomorrow night.  Have a good one!  - and keep those captions coming in!

South Pacific Follies #17

Apologies for the delay - loooong day at work too.


Score one for the crackerjacks!

Caption Challenge Countdown - Last Call

Well, a few days left for the first Caption Challenge now.  Still no entries for the Sequential or Original Design categories.....will those cash prizes go unclaimed?  Don't keep us hanging folks.

All entries must be received by Midnight Wednesday....posting of entries received late night will take place on Thursday.

DMA - Such a Tease

Time for another picset for Candy.  The question is how well can she hide her looks while out and about....?

Of course there's always something like this.  I had a few more stages in mind...but either did give me an idea for a future art contest....stay tuned for details!  Ahh yeah, DMA's art is tight as always!

Mr-DNA - Be Stole My Heart - The Conclusion

A tie?  Are you serious?  How does a poll like this wind up tied?  I don't even know what to say....I'm speechless.

I guess it saves me a post though - we'll just show both of them in this same post - hope you're could have had me draw this out another few days ;p

BQNK - Photomorph

Nothing complicated, just a quick and cute pic by manip-er BQNK - that turned out really well.  I really do need to commission more like these ;p

Mr-DNA - Choose Her Fate!

Well, Mr-DNA and I were brainstorming between a couple little concepts for his ongoing series - and we came up with a nice little alternate piece.  Soooo, again, not my original characters, but like his entry for the Fashion Pageant and subsequent epilogue - it fits very well.

Please vote for your choice in the poll on the left side of the screen.  And while you're at it - check out The Underburbs.  Issue #15 should be out this summer as well as the next (3rd?) TPB - really a great comic!

Schedules and Whatnot

Well, as much as I hate to say it, we've got to take a brief hiatus in "South Pacific Follies" due to scheduling conflicts again.  We do expect to resume our regularly scheduled programming shortly.

By the way, just a shade over 2 weeks left in the first Caption Challenge.

Sigoogle - New Poodle Pics!

Following my standard practice....coming across a new artist interested in tfs and offering commissions...gotta try 'em out ;p

So as always...gotta work the benchmarks first - looking for designs that complement their style.  I think this little design by Sigoogle worked really well!
