Two Contests! (Operation Turdpolish, completed)

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 11, 2015, 8:02 PM


Locations of Site Visitors

Okay!

Things feel clearer now.  

Time to get back on the track.

Now that i'm done cleaning up my gallery, it's time to move on to....

THE TWO CONTESTS

The first contest is, still, the extension of my "Write the Worst Thing Ever!" contest, in which you can win a character drawing from me, and all you have to do is write something horrible, something that my good friend :iconcouncilofgandalf: CouncilOfGandalf can use to incorporate into a larger story.  So you're not writing a full story, just a part of a story.  I know, it's confusing.  Let's get specific...


------
The RULES

-- Write a short story.  Only 2-5 paragraphs at most.  It doesn't need a proper ending.  Length is not really important.

-- Your story must begin with the sentence "And after the Grand Lord cleansed the Cusk of all impurities, he demanded that a new reign commence, a reign far less retarded than all that had come before, and so..."

-- Your story should contain at least one famous trademarked character.  Luke Skywalker, Twilight Sparkle, Frodo Baggins, Iron Man... any character that a teenager today would recognize.  More than one, if you want.

-- Your story must be horrible.  I mean, pungently awful.  Hilariously, stupidly, pointlessly awful.  Feel free to misspell words.  Throw in some rhymes or rap lyrics.  Have it make no sense.  Just make it funny, weird, and completely freaking disgustingly horrible.  Be as shocking or as creepy or as violent as you want.  Make me laugh, make me cringe, make me throw up in my mouth a bit.

Horrible.  I mean it.  That's what we're looking for.

Submit your story to me in a private note.

The prize: One character of your choice drawn by me.

The Judge:iconcouncilofgandalf: CouncilOfGandalf, although I might have some input, seeing as we are friends.

The deadline?  Monday, September 7th, which is Labor Day in America.

.
.
.

The second contest is an all new "Help Me Name this Character!" Contest.

Which character? 

SuperCell by Chronorin

The angry little gothy guy on the left.  

Imagine this scenario:  these two characters, (younger and more normal-looking,) are caught by borderguards as they're trying to sneak into a City from the deserted wastelands outside.  On the verge of being executed, they are asked to give their names.  The little gothy guy is too panicked to speak, so his friend on the right there, who rarely panics, blurts out some flippant nonsense.  "Sure, my name is Jack Cinderfield (the name of an antiquated cigarette mascot from the previous century), and this is my associate __________."

And since the borderguard is wearing some tech that automatically records voice records, they are entered into the system under these obviously fake names.  (They have real boring names like Mike Smith and Bobby Spencer...)

But they're recorded as Jack Cinderfield and....

....some kind of random, weird, silly name.

Thrasher Headstomp?  The Goner?  Endless Mike Hellstrom? Acid Burns?  Boomer Shakalak?

Something like that!  But not exactly like that!

I don't know what the right name is, but i'll know it when i see it!

That's where you come in.  Help me name that little guy.

Submit your proposed name in a private note.  

The prize: One character of your choice drawn by me.

The Judge:iconchronorin: Me.

The deadline?  Also Monday, September 7th, which is Labor Day in America.

.
.
.

Two contests, people.  

Everyone asks me for free requests.  This is your chance to earn one.

Write a bad story!  Name the guy on the left!

That's all you have to do.

^__^

The Wall of Turdpolish
OPERATION TURDPOLISH 3.0
COMPLETE.

Yes, it is done.  I hereby declare that as of August 12, 2015, that Operation Turdpolish: Final Pass is complete.

After well over a year of grinding work, my gallery finally looks right.  You see, when i look at the galleries of my favorite artists -- Artgerm, VanHeist, Yuumei -- their galleries, even back to the beginning in 2004 or 2007, look solid.  Their earlier works are less advanced, but i don't see any horrible over-saturation, extreme anatomy errors, or drawings that just don't seem to belong there.  Everything looks solid and consistent...

...and when i look at my gallery now, that's what i see.  Solidity.  Consistency.  It makes me happy.

Of course, i don't see all of what i want to see.  I don't see enough variety.  I don't see enough comics, landscapes, male characters, or funny things.  I see way too many female characters "just standing around."  I realize how limited the scope of my art has been.  I know what i have to do in the future to correct this.  I've spent too many years infatuated with subjects and ideas, and not nearly enough time infatuated with technique.  That has to chance.

Now that these are done, now that i have erased my past artistic sins.... i can finally move on.  

It's a glorious new day.

"A man shitting in a hat is not enough; he must shit in two hats, and then spill one of them." -- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

"That is most of it, being a wizard -- seeing and listening. The rest is technique."
-- Schmendrick the Magician


"When I was alive, I believed -- as you do -- that time was at least as real and solid as myself, and probably more so. I said 'one o'clock' as though I could see it, and 'Monday' as though I could find it on the map; and I let myself be hurried along from minute to minute, day to day, year to year, as though I were actually moving from one place to another. Like everyone else, I lived in a house bricked up with seconds and minutes, weekends and New Year's Days, and I never went outside until I died, because there was no other door. Now I know that I could have walked through the walls."

-- The Skull.


"The first duty in life is to assume a pose. What the second is, no one has yet discovered."
--Oscar Wilde


“Meaning is not in things but in between them."
-- Norman O. Brown


You're never going to find true happiness, what are you gonna do, cry about it?"
-- Weird Al Yankovic


"What's wrong with running away from reality when it sucks?"
-- Shinji Ikari.


"Life IS pain, your highness. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."
-- Westley, The Princess Bride


"I'm not in the business of seeing whatever pleases YOU."
-- Master Shake


"This is why i hate middle-aged people -- all they want is attention."
-- Super Milk-Chan


"Comedy is a dying artform. But tragedy? Now THAT'S funny."
-- Bender


"Principal Skinner is an old man who lives at the school. I had to go to his office once because i was dirty."
-- Ralph Wiggum


"The Durions had won the day, but left behind were Bruidd ruins; for the Bruidd had left a Sign, or a Poem, as some would say, and some would not."
-- Stephen Gooch


"He who would break a thing to know what it is has left the path of wisdom."
-- Gandalf.


"The Universe is not mystical in how it exists, but in that it exists."
-- Ludwig Wittgenstein.


"All you need is love. Love is all you need."
-- John Lennon.


"There's no such thing as love. It's just another puffed-up word used by Madison Avenue to sell their skin creams and two-seater cars!"
-- Stewie Griffin.
