Thank you everyone for helping us celebrate our 5th Anniversary! Although the actual date of the anniversary was last week (Feb. 8) by the time this post goes up, we are still excited about this sizeable collaboration and for the future of our publication. Below is a list of everyone who participated in this event, which includes a mix of newcomers, long-time readers, and friends.
Thanks again, everyone, for helping us celebrate our 5th Anniversary! Here are the individual submissions from the big collab piece so that you can appreciate all the work the artist put into each piece. Each image redirects to its media file, so you can click on them to see them at full resolution.
Since it is the Year of the Rabbit in the Lunar Cycle, we are kicking things off with an image of our rabbit-themed super hero, the Outstanding Jackrabbit, drawn by our very own Malcolm Terzich. If you aren’t familiar with Jacky Harper, you can read about her in Terzich’s Codex here on the site.
The Outstanding JackRabbit was originally going to be the first title Mr. Terzich planned to run under the Ex Dynamis Chaos label, but he tried to crowdfund it on Kickstarter with another artist and failed to meet his admittedly lofty goal. Immediately after that disappointment, he started working on the Ex Dynamis Chaos webcomic and shoved the story to the back burner. Given that it is the Year of the Rabbit, he claims to have plans to try again if possible, but you know how things go with him since he is backlogged as it is.
We won’t let any of that affect our excuse to celebrate! For the Year of the Rabbit, we are calling on any of our readers with artistic talent to consider making art of Jacky in either her normal or hero form, possibly her little buddy Birgir as well, and send it to use like you would for the typical Art Round-up. You can still make any other character instead if you like, but we would be pleased to have a nice gallery of rabbit-themed art by the end of the Lunar Year. You can even feel free to draw her in pretty much any outfit you please if it makes it more fun for you. When she isn’t forced to pretty up by her swimsuit model mother or for cheerleading, Jacky can be quite the tomboy and the Jackrabbit’s outfit can alter to fit different situations as seen in Terizch’s 2019 Easter Card (it just always uses the same color scheme). Who knows, maybe we’ll do something fun at the end if enough people participate.
Anyhow, we hope you have a wonderful New Year and find yourself hopping with joy regardless of if you participate or not. If you have any questions or would like to discuss with Mr. Terzich about helping with the revival of Jacky’s first story, you can contact him through his business email email@example.com or send him a direct message under either of his usernames at any of the networks he hangs around.
And that’s the deadline people! Thank you everyone who submitted entries, whether you made it in time or not. Even though late entries won’t be accepted for voting, we’ll still retweet them on Twitter and add them to the next Art Round-up after the contest concludes. Below is every entry available for the poll of which will be placed at the bottom of the post. It is okay if you already know who you plan to vote for, but please consider taking the time to appreciate each entrant’s hard work on your way down.
Well, that’s all of them folks. Maybe give them another once over to make sure you really soaked them all in before casting your vote. Okay, We’ll just assume you gave them enough thought. The link to the poll will be directly below. Please don’t share it around directly and use the link to this gallery instead. It’s not just help our metrics, be assured. It is to keep this as fair to all participants as possible since you have to scroll past the gallery to get to the poll. This poll will run up to the 30th of this month and results will be posted on the 1st of May. Thank you and vote honestly.
I was so busy last week pumping out more pages than normal I forgot to do a round-up despite having some content. This week we highlight B-Angelo, who works on a comic of his own and is a good friend of mine. As we do from time to time, we recently did an art trade with each other. Below is his end of that trade including Purrcy, Sentri, The Metal, The Kidd, and Buck. Check out the full-size image here: http://fav.me/dcx3do4
We also did another trade quite sometime back when I was pitching the Outstanding Jack Rabbit, featuring the Jackrabbit herself. Since I’ve never shared it on the site I’ll post it below and you can see that full-size image here: http://fav.me/dbpjq29
