I-I didn't made it? :(
That felt pretty hard on me since I did felt that my entry was funnier than some of these. "orz.
Can I ask for another look? It's http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308069931.
I know this sounds like whining and excuses, and I apologize for that.


Anyway, for the votes...
I really only liked 3, 6, & 7. But I'll add 2 and 10.
#3 was funny and creative, though I wonders how she puts arrows and muffins in the trial version.
#6 was chaotically funny, and expresses the limitation of the trial by showing that there's not much hair variation for the trial.
While #7 could use better pose & expressions, I find it pretty comical, and the last panel is gold.

#2 felt more like a teaser since it didn't really contain much comedy nor punchline. But hey, you got me interested, you win.
For #10, even though I'm not sure I liked that kind of poetry, and I think there's a hair clipping with the uniform, I liked the creativity to change the background's hue and characters into black and white.

Yay! Finally! I'll post my votes later today as I don't have time right now. I just wanted to say how excited I am that voting has started (and that I'm a finalist)!

Hey Everyone!

Well, I’m pretty bummed out about not getting chosen in the contest. And I bet there’s a ton of other people who feel the same way. So I decided to showcase my REPICKS for this contest to give recognition to all the people who put so much work and effort into their Manga!

I just went through all the manga before October the 18th and found some nice trial version contest entries that didn’t seem to get recognized the first time around.

I have below a list I made after a few hours of compiling (the sort function helped tons, and not keeping the entries down to 10 also made things easier and faster). I just wrote some quick blurbs of my thoughts on the entries. I basically just chose based on: Interesting Technique, or Humour, or Unique Idea. Technique was hard, because I wasn’t sure if it was all done with the Trial Version. That probably got people unfortunately disqualified I guess, I’m not sure how they could tell if you did it all with the trial version or not, so they might have been a bit harsh on the contest choices? You can actually get a bunch of great effects with the trial version, so I gave extra focus on interesting things.

So the prize! Well, I guess if you win, we (or just the people who voted for you...) will give you our support in maybe getting squeezed into the ACTUAL contest.

So, Good luck, and Great work everyone! And Super Sorry for any excellent manga contest entries I may have overlooked!

1. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphotoalbum?id=11756679
Tiny text aside, I think I could make out most of it. I think I can totally tell what anime you watch just by the references you made. But what anime has Sea-Monkeys in it???!! Name it and it’ll top my Watch List!

2. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4307901683
I was a “reaction #3” kinda guy. I think you summed up nicely what everyone’s feelings for ComiPo! are.

3. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4307907347
How did you get it to look like people were behind their desks? I guess you chopped off the bottom half of the character and had the top above the seat? It was nice scaling in that classroom scene of students I thought. Working with the trial version that is. (Also, you say “fanatics” like it’s a bad thing, but you really can’t have enough girls (^.^) )

4. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4307911443
You should have Phoenix Wright’d up that OBJECTION a notch! But the pony-tail lowered as a cat tail! Brilliant for the trial version! Good technique. Bonus moe points as well.

5. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4307915860#s=0
I’ve got a soft spot for bad puns. Not that yours was bad. It was really...killer...? The text got a bit small, but, blame the Trail version. Nice use of fade for ghost effect. The punchline was so cliche that it somehow turned out good.

6. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4307920033
I don’t know if this was trial version or not. The Effect was excellent though. The dark blue colouring. Nice. The rain background. Nice. The cursive text in white non-outlined thought bubble. Nice. Gratuitous Visual Shot? Nice.

7. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308080759
The build-up wasn’t so bad. But are those stars supposed to be multicoloured in the trail version?

8. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308087275
Was this with the trial version?? Awesome game effects! How’d you get those Game Character outlines? Fill colour, then increase and recolor outline length? And what about the Health bars? I guess they are just solid recolored rectangles? Very unique and awesome comic idea.

9. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308103341
Nice paneling and final punchline. Just a final sour look, and a scream. I thought it was funny and well done.

10. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308103861
Yesss, more bad punsss. Well, it’s not really all that punny. Wow. I really liked the paneling set-up. It’s like a samurai duel. The eye close-ups. The letter-box wide view of the 2 combatants. The engagement clash. And...the finale!

11. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308106582
I had to read it a couple to times, but I liked the joke. I thought it was pretty funny. Well done here, and I think we all share the same sentiment as the “ghost” in this one.

12. http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=4308214645#s=1
I liked the little internal monologue. I'm sure we could all use a little primal scream now and again. RAWRRR!!!!

Voting Format
To avoid confusion, please label voting properly so that the Crunchyroll Staff can quickly read the votes. Also, I reposted this in the other "Contest Forum". If the Crunchyroll Staff finds my "other" contest a bit confusing, I would not mind if they moved this topic into it's own thread or something.

-------Official Contest Votes-------
#3: The Muffin! Dingbat fonts! Brilliant! I went on straight away and checked up, and yeah, you do get random images! Nice technique. But I couldn't find the exact one you used for the muffiin...
#4: It needed more panels, but we can only assume it'd just keep getting better.
#7: She looks constantly dazed and she's seeing stars and random psychedelic colors. Yeah, I think someone slipped her something.
#9: I liked how show was scouting out the situation by hanging from the panel upside down. Kinda breaking the fourth wall I guess.
#1: Well, it's simple and to the point.


------Unofficial PoCon (ComiPo Contest) Votes-----------
#1
#2
#3
....
#12
All of them are great! Congrats all around!

It's really nice of you , and I do agree that some of these are better than some of the finalist, so I'll vote for this ones too, even if it's for naught.
Also, care to look at mine ? I said that #2 was my entry, but I guess the others might be funnier to different peoples.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphotoalbum?id=11923265

For this ones, I vote for 2, 3, 7, 8, and 10.

I liked the attempt at motion effects for the character and object on the second panel. Could've been done better, especially at full version, but gives enough ideas on how to make one. :)

Yeah, you can see the bottom-left character were cut a bit too high.
You can actually achieve a better effects by "equipping" chairs & desks into the characters, but it might not work at certain angle and gonna need some extra works when you wanted to leave some chairs and desk between them and the viewers empty.

The tail is definitely creative , but rather than a cat-girl, it looked more like a fox-girl (turn it so that it points up, and enlarge it a bit, voila!).

This one is definitely not a trial, since trial doesn't have the backgrounds (the ones behind the rain) and no import feature.

Yes, you can create those star effects in trial.
The stars are "Sparkles_15", which are black and white. You can change it into other color with the Change Color function.

Yup, this one is also possible on trial.
For the characters, again we use the Change color function, and then change the Stroke Width and Color on Layer Properties.

For the health bar, I'm pretty sure its a colored rectangular text balloon.

I liked the interesting paneling and black backgrounds (just like you said, those closeups on anime duels/fighting games).
Although it's kinda funny that the black haired girl had umbrella on the far shot, but changed into a bat on the closeup. Also, the Comipo! mascot girl had two bats!

wait, i'm confused, are these votes for the finalist's contest, or is this a completely different thing?
if it doesn't have to do with the finalist contest, then i suggest talking about this somewhere else so there aren't any misunderstandings about the votes.

Nah, I'm just voting for wanderingwandering's list. It most likely not gonna help the main votes, but I kinda hoped it can appeal the Comipo! staff, because there are some people in that unofficial list that deserve the the prize.

Sorry but I just wanted a quick word.

It seems like ComiPo recognition has really dropped in the last 2 months since the contest started.
Only 6 people have voted so far on the 10 entries, and the contest ends tomorrow!

Might I suggest extending the deadline, and also posting the ComiPo contest to the front of the Crunchyroll home page again so people are reminded of the contest and their entries, and the Amazing-ness of the ComiPo software?

Thanks!

I agree. I really don't see how a winner can be fairly chosen when only 6 or so people have voted.

Can I vote for myself? XD
Assuming I can vote for myself:

#9, #5, #8, #6, #10



Reasonings:
#9 My own thus obviously I'm voting for it.
#5 Because I felt like voting for 5! (And thus my vote for 5 might change) (and because Tatsuki didn't like it)
#8 Probably sums up a lot of our feelings
#6 Just because I like the three colored hair
#10 Because I want to

{Personally, would've made more sense to have a poll and to explain whether or not we could vote for ourselves}

@TatsukiTakatsuki

More pictures: (Mostly proof of my Higanbana being a "horror" lover or monster ally


My old comic relating to ilydia (Higanbana and ilydia obviously were supposed to be different numbers originally >.>)


The original order:


(Yes, I do get annoyed at false accusations since I've made countless inventions and stories and have seen them all get made commercial months or years after I come up with them (as I said, copyright system is flawed due to them wanting money) and yet people say that those ideas are original. (Naruto as an example, has fanboys/fangirls that go: Oh, your idea is so unoriginal, Naruto came up with it first when I had the idea for years before Naruto or it is an actual technique from years/centuries before Naruto or is an idea from somewhere else that Naruto took ("Oh, but Naruto invented ninjas" Yeah... about that one...)))

Again, it isn't about them using my ideas. It is about when people say it is "original" just because it got copyrighted first.
