2008-05-04 [Yncke]: It is rather silly to enter as first a day before the deadline, but I had already half of it, so I just finished it and entered anyway...

2008-05-04 [SilverFire]: Since Draug and Duke both said they had entries, I might extend the deadline, to give them time. ._. But there won't be another round.

2008-05-04 [Yncke]: It's a pity there won't be other rounds. There aren't that many comic related contests on Elftown, and certainly not ones with only one page.

2008-05-05 [iippo]: It is a shame that it hasn't caught on. :/

And I have no excuse why I didn't enter.

2008-05-05 [SilverFire]: I would make other rounds, if I thought I could get enough people interested. But it can just be slightly depressing to keep making failing contests. ^^; It's a shame it doesn't seem to have caught on, I'd have liked to enter if it had been someone else running it. Alas, not even real prizes seem to be enough to tempt people.

Maybe I just don't know how to advertise. O_o

2008-05-05 [Yncke]: I have the general impression that the number of entrants to contests is on the decline. And comic contests are trickier anyway, because lots of people make stand alone drawings, but few make comic pages.

I also think that this song is better chosen than the one before. I had no idea what to do with the previous one. Perhaps use really easy songs? (I mean songs with things happening, instead of eloquent descriptions of emotions.)

2008-05-05 [SilverFire]: If I can think of a really easy song, I may give it one more go. You're right about less entrants in general, but obviously we still managed to get more entrants for the 30 day contest than I did for this.

2008-05-05 [Yncke]: Yes, but the 30 day contest was a very different kind of challenge. It was less a contest to see what you were able to draw, and more of a contest to see if you were able to draw for a whole month.

Drawing a comic page, even if it's only one and in pencil, is a different kind of challenge. (And a whole lot of fun, in my opinion, people just have to believe they can do it too.)

2008-05-20 [BinaryPhoenix]: Damn. The deadline is over. :(

2008-05-20 [SilverFire]: Deadline extended.

2008-05-20 [Yncke]: Yay! :D

2013-11-25 [Yncke]: A pity nobody else entered...

2013-11-25 [SilverFire]: Indeed. :/

2013-11-25 [iippo]: Comic is a hard art form.
