  • Mood: Artistic
In honor of the first year anniversary of Bobble Kitty Comics, we’re holding a comic caption contest! :D You don’t need to know anything about Bobble Kitty to enter, all you need is a little imagination and the page provided to you. This year's contest deadline is April 30th, 2014, 8:00PM, Mountain Time

Here’s the deal.

Some time ago, I sketched up some thumbnails for a little gag comic I was gonna draw.
Mystery Sketch Page by resuki

I often do this as a way of making notes to myself. The problem here? I didn’t actually write down any of the dialog that was supposed to go into this page, nor do I even remotely remember what was happening. Which is too bad, because it looks like it was hilarious.

This is where you come in! We need you to write up some great dialog for these characters! You can win commission prizes, deviantArt journal features, and your comic page being posted on BobbleKitty.com!

:bulletred: THE GOAL:  Write dialog for the following comic page:
Bobble Kitty Caption Contest 2014 by resuki
(Click for full view and download)

:bulletblue: RULES:

1.    You can either insert the dialog yourself OR you can submit a script format for the page.
2.    If submitting as an image, all words must fit in the bubbles provided and be CLEARLY READABLE.
3.    If submitting as a script, all words would have to feasibly fit in the bubbles. (No paragraph long monologues. Think in terms of tweets here. ;) )
4.    Everyone who enters (in comic or script mediums) automatically grants permission that their comic may be posted on BobbleKitty.com as part of the contest, and shared across our social media platforms. You will always be credited for your work.
5.    If submitting a script, you give Team Bobble Kitty permission to format the dialog into the comic page for posting on BobbleKitty.com if they see fit. (You will always be credited.)
6.    You can use any genre, topic, or idea you see fit for the images. It is not mandatory that you stick to a humor strip. (Though I can’t imagine what else this will turn into – surprise me if you like!)
7.    Knowledge of the characters is NOT needed.
8.    Keep the language of all entries in the PG ballpark. (No f-bombs, please. :) )

HOW TO ENTER AN IMAGE
1.    Download the full resolution image above.
2.    Remove the numbers and input your dialog with your program of choice.
3.    Upload your image to deviantArt under the comics category, tagging resuki in the description and linking back to the contest journal
OR email your image to BobbleKittyComics@gmail.com if you’re not a deviantArt member.
4.    Await the results!

HOW TO ENTER A SCRIPT
1.    Create a script using the numbers in each bubble to indicate where the text goes.
2.    Upload your script to deviantArt under the scripts and screenplays category, tagging resuki in the description and linking back to the contest journal
OR email your script to BobbleKittyComics@gmail.com if you’re not a DA member.
3.    Await the results!


:bulletred: JUDGING:
The contest will be judged by Team Bobble Kitty (resuki and TheLuckChild ) We will determine winners based on creativity, emotion, humor, flow, and generally how well the whole idea was handled.

:bulletred:THE DEADLINE: April 30th, 2014, 8:00PM, Mountain Time

*Digital copy only, no physical images will be shipped via post office. I will choose the medium that best suits what I would like to do with the idea pitched at me, be it digital coloring, markers, pencils, etc.
**If the winner does not have a website, a Tumblr, Facebook fan page, etc is also acceptable. We will NOT feature sites that are pornographic in nature or otherwise unsuitable for the general PG audience of Bobble Kitty Comics.

Please note!  Winners will have six months after notification date to claim their prizes. After this time, any unclaimed prizes will be forfeited.


:bulletred:Technicalities and Questions:

:bulletblue:How will I know if I win?
We will notify everyone via deviantArt note or email when the contest ends to make sure no one misses the winners.

:bulletblue: What are the names of the people in the comic?  What are they like? What are their genders?
All of these questions are things we leave to the writers to decide! Yes, they are established characters to us, but they are also (mostly) unreleased characters, so that doesn’t matter. We’re not looking for a fan-comic here, just wanting to see how creative people can be with this. So go nuts!

:bulletblue: Can I put my website URL on the image, too?
Of course! Just make sure ours is still visible. :)

:bulletblue: I don’t have Photoshop or anything. Can I still enter?
Sure can! Just enter a script format as outlined above.

:writersblock: BEST OF LUCK TO ALL!

:bulletblue: Disclaimer:
REMEMBER: All entries are subject to being posted on BobbleKitty.com, giving the writer credit and a link-back. Bobble Kitty Comics reserves the right to keep said images up for as long as we see fit. The writer of the page also has permission to redistribute their page as they see fit, so long as it is for non-commercial purposes and the BobbleKitty.com watermark and all credits are left in place. Likewise, we will not sell the comic with your dialog.

Why'd you take down your Sonic the Hedgehog in Mallrats fan poster? To color it? (Also, would Vanilla be Mr. Svening or would it be her dad?)

I put it into storage during a gallery clean up a while back, actually. It's back out again, since you asked about it. :)

SONIC- MALLRATS- nuf said by resuki
I don't intend to ever color this piece, too many other projects going on. I may take another crack at the Jay and Silent Bob/Rotor and Knuckles crossover at some point though.

As for the question about Mr. Svening, I could never figure that one out at the time. Creme was a newly released character at the time and Vanilla wasn't widely known yet. So it could very well be her.
