let us all join together to celebrate the joy of peace and love
and also the internet
You've seen these meme faces everywhere, the troll!face, rage!face, forever alone!face, y u no!face- the list goes on.
And they are hilarious
So what I want you to do for this challenge is to draw a comic strip based on one of the internet meme faces.
Something stupid happen to you? Make a rage!face comic. Ever done something stupid and socially humiliating? Make a Forever Alone comic, etc.
But here's the thing. I don't want to see anything that looks like it was made in MS Paint in five minutes. You know what I'm talking about. I mean, they're funny, but this challenge is only half about the humor. The actual challenge part is seeing if you can translate it into a quality image
So I reiterate in list form!
1. Make a comic based on a internet face meme. Here is a list to get you started, but I'm sure there's more out there.
2. The art must be your own! However, you can base it on an existing comic, but you must link to it. That would actually be cool to see what people do.
3. Or, you can base it off your own experience.
4. Any media is accepted. Digital art, traditional, paper children, clay if you can manage to make it relevant, whatever you work in. Vectors will also be accepted if you can find a way to put your own spin on it.
5. Quality artwork! No stick figures!
6. Nothing NC-17. Generally stay within theO's guidelines, but I'll allow things like sexual puns, comical violence, etc.
7. Kind of going with number 5, be conscious of possible insensitivity. In simpleton-speak, no rape jokes or the like.
8. I would say unlimited submissions, but then people might abuse that so I'll say up to three submissions but if you come up with something better I can disqualify one of them for you so that you can submit again.
9. On that note, I don't want to see anything multi-chaptered unless you absolutely cannot fit it on one strip. So no submitting three different stories in one multi-paged comic.
You will be judged on humor and quality!
Now, the prizes!
