Caption Challenge Update

Ok...this might be a bit of a cop-out, but I am wiped out.  I don't want to try judging a contest while I'm so tired - so I'll be reviewing and posting results in the morning.

Thanks for your patience!

Caption Entry - TheUnthinker

Last set of captions for this Caption Challenge.  They all come from TheUnthinker - some very unique concepts here - let's hope we see more captions from them in the future.

Caption Entry - FurCo

A great little caption by FurCo!  Slightly on the darker side of these things go ;p

Diggerman - Accessorize That Look for Halloween

Been following Diggerman for a while now...just never seemed to have a good chance to commission him - until now!  This concept seemed right up his alley as befits a Halloween themed piece.

I'd say $20 for a costume like one in this comic would be practically a steal!


Halloween Posting Extravaganza!

Well folks - been an interesting Halloween - first one back on the mainland for a while...maybe not that long...but different stuff going on other years.  I've put together a number of new projects with new and familiar much so in fact...that I think I'll save some of it for posting this weekend as well.

Partly to savor the weekend - and partly because I'm tired.  Long week and today ran a little late with errands and other things tonight (not to mention watching the Directors Cut of Nightbreed on blu-ray - look for a review at the sister blog very soon).

Still...plenty of goodness for tonight...just take it in slowly...

First up - from blackshirtboy - not sure how...but apparently Max regained his normal form after the last Fashion Pageant.  Not sure why he would choose to do his Halloween shopping at La De Baucherie Magique....maybe he's just a glutton for punishment...or maybe it was a free gift?

0pik-0ort - Mmmm Pie! #5

I think we've really reached the part of this transformation where "epic" is the appropriate description...wouldn't you agree?

Caption Entry - TG-Spain 2

Another piece by TG-Spain - this one is a progressive sequence...very nice selection of images!

Caption Challenge Entry - feargas

A really classy mini-sequence by feargas (@ Rachel's Haven).

0pik-0ort - Mmmm Pie! #4

At this point...she might have to give up on finding the fork.  Alternatively, the fresh night air is wonderful for clearing out your sinuses.

0pik-0ort - Mmmm Pie! #2

One night closer to the haunting Halloween extravaganza.  I do love me some Pumpkin Pie...and thankfully 0pik-0ort is a fan too!

Honestly, I can't really fault the gal's not like she's really pigging out on her 3rd pie or anything...must be something else.

0pik-0ort - Mmmm Pie! #1

Tonight marks the first night of Halloween week and what is intended to be a slew of original posts - including a number of artists never before featured on the site (most of whom are long overdue). 

( be totally honest, nearly all the new art will be going up on Friday night (when else?)) - but we've got some fun all week...and then as mentioned before...running into next week as well.

Starting off with a piece by 0pik-0ort - pic a night ;p  I really love pumpkin pie.  Honestly...this year there seems to be an abundance of it - mini-pies at the grocery store (great for single servings), various coffee types, pumpkin pie poptarts, pumpkin cream hershey kisses, pumpkin cream/pumpkin pie donuts all over the place....'course next year I might be sick of them all...but honestly, right now I can't get enough of the stuff....(really need another pumpkin pie blizzard at DQ too - maybe this weekend).

Honestly...don't think I need too many tags on this one...but I'm sure we'll see some special ones pretty soon ;p  Shouldn't give away too much up front.

Okayokayokok - Cutting Costs

It can be really tough to run a small business....especially a restaurant.  The stats say something like 80% of small businesses will fail in their first year of operation...and I think the numbers are even worse for restaurants.  The following piece by Okayokayokok is one I've wanted to illustrate for a long time. 

Sometimes you might just get wish is all it could take to turn things around.

Brief Note

Just a quick note - I know it looks like it's just been SPF lately, but there are a number of other projects scheduled for posting very soon.  Already got a couple holiday themed pieces in the bag - and election day is just around the corner - just gotta get the timing right on these projects.

Also - still hoping to see some entries for the caption challenge as well.  You can't win if you don't enter!

Discussion - Art and Caption Contests

Thanks for the votes and feedback on the most recent poll.

(Pic didn't turn out too well, but whatever).

I was pretty certain that "Farmgirls" would be a favorite - it's a consistent theme that a lot of artists have already worked with.  Might be fun to mix it in with something else....seasonal options maybe?  Of course...the difference is between showing the transformation sequence and something else...I'll work on something - next one will probably start the beginning of next year.

On the other hand it's also nice to see some of the other concepts pick up a lot of votes.  We'll see how things go.  Kinda weird to see "Other" get 3 votes but no comments explaining them ;p

Don't forget - a little over 2 weeks left for the current caption contest.

Amazeroth - Gift Art

Just posted a fairly lengthy (18 pages) comic by Amazeroth on the gift art page.  This one didn't make it quite in time for Art Contest #7, but it's a great TransRepo Industries themed comic and I'm very grateful for being permitted to share it here too.

New Gift Art!

Wow!  Just got a few beautiful new pieces of gift art from Mr-DNA.  Consider them spiritual sequels to the previously featured "Be Stole My Heart" sequences.

In B&W AND color!  Very classy all around. too can get yourself some free bonus art just by picking up a few amazingly drawn and hilarious Underburbs comic books.  TPB #3 is shipping this month - which features Bel in a starring role (see second pic).  Check 'em out!
