Deadline: March 12th, 2014



          Welcome, bbs, to my first art contest! I am proud to announce that this art contest is themed around the comic book I am writing, "Geek Rapture". "Rapture" is about an apocalypse where only the non-geeks disappear from the world, leaving the population decimated but nerdy. Cities shrink in size as people radiate towards working power plants and structures they can keep running. There also begins to be a segregation by level of geekiness and fandom. So, yes, it's also a bit of a parody.

          My plan is to scatter beautiful fanarts on the Facebook fanpage leading up to the crowdfunding campaign.


          FAQ

          we'll go get some coffee. If anything bad happens... to you... well. we'll be getting coffee.

          Do you also do the art for the comic?
          I do not! I have hired a very lovely artist~

          When is the Kickstarter happening?
          In the spring of 2014, probably around March.

          Where can I find this magical thing?
          Right here!

          rules
          you know what the chain of command is? it's the chain I go get and beat you with until you understand who's in ruttin' command here.
          heart

          Follow the TOS. Nothing risque, and, obviously, don't claim others' artwork as your own.
          Be pleasant to each other. Chat, bump, do what you like, but be NICE about it, please!
          I have final say in all matters inside this thread.
          You may enter as many times as you like. Grand, second, and third places will probably not win any of the smaller characters prizes as well but it could happen.
          Use the form to enter your art. Do not PM, please.

          more like guidelines
          parlay?
          heart

          Feel free to ask me anything. Really! It's better to ask and get to know the world/character.
          Know if you're willing to share your artwork with the world. It's there in the entry form, and not optional. I need to know if it's okay! You will be fully credited under whatever name you desire. In fact, interested artists can even apply to have their artwork used as a Kickstarter incentive.

          joan
          heart

          PLS NOTE THAT JOAN IS MUCH HEAVIER THAN THE REF PIC ON THE SIDE


          JOAN is cute and plump and Hispanic. She's quite short, at 4'9". Her black hair is a tiny bit wavy at the bottom and goes to about her shoulders. She has dark brown eyes. At the convention, she wears a "The Brotherhood of the Remarkable" t-shirt (parodying "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" comic font), and jeans with Mary Jane shoes without heels.

          About

          Joan was almost exclusively raised by her brother Michael because their mother was always busy at several jobs. They escaped into geeky imaginations together, but then Michael met Lucy and fell in love. Lucy wasn't into any of that stuff, so Michael gradually dropped it all in favor of keeping up his relationship, causing Joan to resent Lucy strongly for 'stealing' her brother. She now works at a law firm doing data entry, saving up all her money to go to conventions and buy geeky stuff to adorn her apartment. She dreams constantly of breaking away from it all, and of life being grander, but never has the gumption to do anything about it.

          shawna
          heart

          SHAWNA is tall and slender, with a girl-next-door attractiveness. She stands 5'6". Her hair is straight, brown and long past her shoulders. She has green eyes. At the convention, she's dressed in costume as Double Agent: a sexy black body-suit with yellow trim and a short jacket styled like the top of a 70s trenchcoat.

          About

          Shawna attends convention in cosplay or as a "booth babe", standing near people's booths dressed up to attract attention. This often has her being called out as not being a real geek, but just posing. The truth could not be more opposite: Shawna is a huge comic and superhero fan, and she also enjoys YA (including Twilight). She believes everyone should be able to like what they like and, in an argument, sometimes ends up swearing like a sailor.

          likes: comics, young adult fiction/movies, Twilight, cosplay, superheroes
          dislikes: being called "fake"

          HADLEY is 5'4". Heart-shaped face, cute, freckled-- and a huge, loud punk. Hadley has short asymmetrical black hair and loves her clothing to also be asymmetrical, baggy, and mismatched. She's a make-up artist, so knows how to look pretty, though. Or scary.

          About

          Hadley lives with cystic fibrosis while trying to become a makeup-artist. She's worked with Andrew before on his web series.

          likes: loud music, video-games, playing with make-up, doing other people's make-up, saying '******** you' to her illness
          dislikes: being considered 'disabled', people who mince around their feelings, the color pink

          ANDREW is a spindly, brown-haired young man, in his late 20s, who wouldn't stand out in a crowd. He's 6'0".

          About

          Andrew produces his own web series (Dudes With Cameras) on the side of his boring office job, trying to get popular enough to break out for full-time and become 'internet popular'.

          ERIC is a big Viking of a man: tall, pale, with blond hair.

          About

          Eric is an aspiring comic artist, but he can't manage to do anything original; his work is always derivative of whoever is his current idol. He and Shawna used to date, but he kept calling her 'fake' and challenging her geekiness and she broke up with him.

          likes: anime, comics, writing fanfiction
