CONTEST – Comment for a Chance at a Free Commission!

Nope, I’ve not lost my mind — it just so happens that my birthday’s this week, and why should I be the only one to enjoy it?

If you’ve not already stopped by to see the site redesign unveiled earlier this week, you’ve noticed that there’s room for lots of things on the site — including the ability to leave comments. Of course, there are a lot of pages here, and only so many people who’re otherwise willing to leave feedback on some of the ones buried deep in the archives. If you want a chance at winning a free commission, just leave a  comment with a valid email address (so I can contact you if you win)!

Because there need to be rules to this sort of thing:

  • Comments won’t count if they get caught in the spam filter or are otherwise just garbage.
  • Yes, leaving multiple comments will help your chances (so long as they are valid comments, anyway), so feel free to go through the archives and comment on older pages!
  • The email address should go in the field that asks for an email address, not in the comment field itself :-p The site shouldn’t let you submit a comment otherwise, but just in case…
  • I’m counting all comments posted until February 7th, so if you’ve already left a few, you’re included too.
  • This is for a single-character, full-body commission rated PG-13 or lower.
  • I’ll pick a random comment from the ones submitted. Many will enter, One will win.

If you’re not keen on leaving things up to chance, I’m still offering conbadge commissions at $15 apiece, until I decide I’ve got too many to do.  It’s a great way to support the comic and get some sweet artwork for yourself, so why wait? Send an email / DM via Twitter, and we can discuss the details.

As for the rest of you… good luck!

I read every comment, and respond to quite a few as well! It's pretty common that someone else will respond to your comment before the next page's update, too...

10 Comments So Far...

  1. Cat

    Well I have to start commenting now, huh? XD

    I’m waiting to see what colour the discs turn according to ranks. Whether it’s Gold/Silver/Borne or something more original.

  2. Nique

    Golden Braun has no nostrils! D:
    Otherwise, I love her design. Horns = <3

  3. Cy Reb, Jr.

    @ Nique: Perhaps they open intermittently but mostly remain closed, like those of a hippo underwater. What say you, cartoonist?

  4. Cy Reb, Jr.

    Ooh, pretty default-icon colors! What template (if it is indeed a template) on what program are you using?

  5. admin

    The icons are from a WordPress Plugin called “Identicon” that generates various icons based on the email address supplied. It picks a 24-bit color (I have the background set as “transparent”, so it only picks one color), three shapes (out of 17 available) and the orientations/inversions of those shapes. The end result is a pretty effect that reminds me of patchwork quilts. 🙂 Nique’s really stands out of the ones I’ve seen generated so far, just because the shapes on hers really stand out and meld into a larger shape than the usual grid of four makes.

    As for Golden’s nose: This is more “stylistic error” than a lack of nostril — mostly just trying to make it so Vidian snouts don’t look like Zillan ones. Some details work better than others, of course.

  6. Bryce Herdt

    You may want to clarify that the e-mail address doesn’t need to be in the body of the comment. Maybe that’s already clear, but I was confused for a second.

  7. admin

    I can add some clarification, sure.

    Considering that the form shouldn’t allow you to post without filling in something for an email address, I would hope it becomes clear as you try to comment at least. ^_^

  8. Jalterixnar

    Ooh, I was wondering about the icons there and never thought to ask you. Interesting bit of code there!

  9. Sienna Maiu

    That’s preposterous!
    I don’t even know *how* to leave valid commentary! :O

  10. Jigsaw Forte

    I appreciate your enthusiasm, but this particular contest is now over. :-p
