You can’t have a contest without some kind of prize, so here’s what the lucky winner will receive;
The first volume of the awesome Girl Genius webcomic; the perfect synthesis of Johannes Gutenberg’s mad science creation and the Foglios’ mad science imaginings, brought directly into your home!
Why, the very act should feel slightly edgy!
But enough about the prize, how do you, the reader, go about obtaining this classic of modern iMADgination?
It’s quite simple… deceptively so.
You have to bring your own mad genius into play!
Using your imagination, and whatever artistic talents you may have, bring your favorite character creation and the concept of mad science together… and then send your juxtaposition of imagination to me here at the Big Bear Butt. (email to tigerlordgm AT yahoo DOT com)
It’s not about World of Warcraft, although you can use your favorite character from WoW if you’d like. It’s not about screenshots, although you can choose to submit one if that’s what the mad little neurons drove you to do when they got all excited up in your cranial housing.
What it takes is a character, an avatar, an alter ego of yours from a game or story of some kind, and your placing that character into a context highlighting and celebrating the whimsical genius and enthusiastic inventiveness that is mad science.
You can send in screenshots, short stories, movies (or links to movies posted by you on YouTube), songs, pictures of sculpture or knitted scenes, or anything your mind can imagine and that you would love to show off. The main thing is, it has to have been created by YOU.
Heck, create a cake sculpture and send in a picture, whatever you’d like. It’s not meant to be work, it’s meant to be fun! How your creativity is expressed is up to you!
I will gladly accept screenshots or pastiches of your character in-game amidst the panoply of rendered mad science… bless those gnomes and goblins for their hard work.
I will accept all submissions , beginning today and lasting throughout the week, ending on Friday, January 21st.
The weekend of January 22nd – 23rd, Cassie and I will review all submissions, and pick our favorites to go up on the blog for YOUR votes!
That’s right, the final winner will be determined by you! Well, the collective ‘you’ of readers that choose to vote.
So put your best set of thinking goggles on, and get hopping! Time is running out!
Again, email your submission (or a link to your submission) to tigerlordgm AT yahoo DOT com!
