COW - Creature Of the Week - Weekly Contest!
There will be a weekly contest soon here in the sketches-forum...
The idea is to turn the high potential of the creature-inspired artworks into a fun weekly contest...
The plan is to open a thread every week where members are allowed to post creatures they drew...after the week is over there will be a poll, where all members of ca.org can vote for their favorite...the winner's creatures will be posted in a separate sticky thread, where all winner creatures can be seen by the drooling members...
For now i am struggling with some organisation probs....for example i didn't find any way to start a poll in a existing thread...there is only the option to start a poll when opening a thread...
However just a note, that you should be prepared when things will start rolling...sharpen your mind and your pencils until then...
Feel free to post crits, comment, suggestions or anything else related to this topic...maybe we can optimize the whole idea before starting...
SUGGEST TOPICS HERE!
edit: i forgot to mention that i got inspired for this thing by this thread of johnsaulrubio:

I don't know, actually i wanted to start this with no topics...but i am not against topics...with every cow-contest we'll optimize the rules and structure, so at the end there will be a fine working activity...if there is any interest at all...
So anything can change like e.g. the duration of the contest...maybe one week is too less and we'll make 2 weeks of it later on or maybe one month....i don't know at the moment...i'll watch the progression and change the structure when necessary...
So what do you think about topics? Is it better with or without topics?

Damn, this thread sounds awesome. I say no on the topics, this way we get a wide variety of different creatures.

Every time I think that I know this forum, and feel like there's nothing unexpected going to happen - you guys come up with something like that. What can I say - I love you all of you So much great stuff going on in the last few weeks - makes me wanna leave my job and browse the forum all the time - and be a part of all this great activities.
BTW - Sounds like there's gonna be at least a couple of threads connected to this contest each week - maybe (if that's not a problem) make it a sub-forum for the finished pieces and voting, discussion and all and put only the winners thread in the general sketches forum as a sticky - this way they won't get lost.

I like topics, it forces you to do things you wouldn't normally do. As long as the topic isn't too constraining the artist still has loads of room for his own interpretation.
Bring it on!

I agree with Floris - having a topic of some sort will help to push people out of their comfort zones, and it might make voting easier if we're comparing creatures based around a similar brief.
If adding a poll to the thread for voting is a problem, why not just have people post their votes in the thread when the contest is done? That way, people have the opportunity to leave a comment to explain why they cast their vote for a particular entry. CGTalk handles voting for their sketch group this way, and it seems to work pretty well.
Nice one, Fozzy! Let's go, go, go..!
