There should be no problem about that, after all, those characters are intended to be violent. (sorry about not being specific on that little detail)

On the other hand, characters like Lisa, Bart or any other regulars will have to stay out of that violent level.  Even if THOH related, I don't think people will like to see a Lisa Simpson having her head chopped off. or hanging of a rope like we have seen in some THOH couch gags.  ;)

your just trying to ruin everyone's fun, aren't you. it's cool, but what about violence in the form of, say, Lisa Fiztgerald. as i remember there was a little bit of violence in that.
He stood tall on top of the mountain of his ancestors and looked down to see his home. He let loose a loud howl. He is now a man, but not just a man. He is now a true Wolf and others are sure to follow him.

Ahem... actually, Lisa's life was living hell for three years. If that was "a little bit of violence" then I just don't know.

Now excuse me, I have to go and kill Jack Fitzgerald...

I'm sure Omar means violence as in "gory stuff just for shock effect". Relying to that kind of stuff is always a very cheap way to impress people, so i think it's unnecessary. Of course, if it's not gory and it's intended for the final goal (telling a story) i guess it could be accepted, but it should not be the main point of a picture. But i'll have Omar detail this one better, since it's a very subjective detail since the word "violence" implies all sort of gradations.

Marco took the words letters out of my mouth keyboard.  That's the way is was intended to be.  Gore is the level of violence I was refering to.  Is a good thing I made this thread ahead of time to clean things up.  ;)

Aw dammit!  And I've just bought five gallons of red paint....

Seriously though, this sounds really good.  I especially like the concept of storytelling via the artwork and with the writing competition being based on existing pictures, it ties everything together nicely.  Now I just need to think of something original to draw....
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

We need help!

Important

Dear members,  it is getting closer to May 10th and we haven't got enough judges for the writing competition.   Everything here is done with too much determination, so we could have a little bit of competitive spirit, never to underestimate anyone's work.    I could judge, but that would not make sense at all.  My english is not up to that level, yet.  I'm still going to read all the stories, and thats a promise.

In order for the competition to be fair we need at least three Judges.   I will have some gift for the Judges too.  I'm offering a commision work, 'cause I'm not rich. :-)  :-P


Ehh, what else can I say?  Well, please people, I'm begging you.  Look! I'm on my knees.  I'm going to kiss you ass and call it ice cream. *lol*


Folks, this competition cannot go on without your help.  If this tradition continues,  who knows,  we may end up doing it once a year.   ;D

The panel of Judges so far:

Writing contest:  Graham and Zeke

Drawing contest:  Marco aka (Simpreal), Morpheus and Omar aka (OARRIAGA2001)

Could you make a list of the Entrants in both Writing and Art contests, and the judges for those please? Cheers :)


As for violence, gah, whats the point? Its only a single picture, I'm sure you can all work out somthing inspirational enough for one non-violent picture.
(Excluding Itchy & Scratchy and Futurama to a point.)
I personaly dont see it as rocket science working out whether your going to far.

Hi, my dearest co-members and minions.  ;D ;)

Today is May 10th, and the competiton starts. However, because of mother's day, it is understandable that most of you, if not all, are with your mothers, like me.  So entries will be posted starting tommorow May 11th.   

One more thing. We truly need one more judge for the writing competition.   If you are a good writer and think wont have a chance of writing an entry, please help us out!  This whole deal cannot be made without you  :)

Omar Perez.


P.S.  May all mothers on this board and mothers of the members have a glorious day!

I'll be a writing judge then, if that's okay? I was thinking of entering, but I haven't come up with any ideas from any pictures yet, so instead I might as well judge the other stories. :)

Thanks, Kenneth! You and the other judges are doing a great service.

Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.
