Hello and welcome to the first official Aptitude Test contest! (It rhymes!)
With October upon us, I need to figure out what to do for my yearly Halloween comic! To refresh your memories, every year I do a comic with Julie and Rina all dressed up for Halloween.
They’ve been Young Avengers, Street Fighters, and Death Weapon Meisters already.
So this year, I’m looking for ideas! Here’s the breakdown:
1) If you have an idea for Julie and Rina’s costumes, send it firstname.lastname@example.org and write “Halloween 09″ in the subject line. Any idea is good, just follow these vague guidelines:
– A theme for the two of them is encouraged over two unrelated costumes, but it’s not a rule.
– Geeky/pop culture stuff is always good.
– If it’s something more obscure, sending some reference my way would be a help.
– Nothing obscene or weird. I’ll tell your mothers.
– I’m sure my friends are all going to send me ideas, but you guys can’t win, got it? Yes, I’m talking to you Tempo.
2) I’ll pick the top 3-5 ideas (depending on how many I get) and set up a poll. Then everyone gets to vote on what I draw! The contestant who picks the winning entry… is the winner!
– You can send more than one suggestion, but only one will make it to the poll.
3) The winner get both his/her idea brought to life, and I’ll do them afree commission! A fully coloured drawing of whatever they want! Plus, a copy of my new Aptitude Test mini-comic, which features a bunch of all-new character bios and other neat stuff. Cool huh?
So show me what you got! All entries should be in by October 18th.
