CONTEST - FABOLOUS PRICES AWAITS

WHO'LL ROLL AND WHO'LL CRAWL?
CRAZY ROBOT LADEH OR THE EQUALLY CRAZY MONSTER BOY

:star: Illustrate your vision on the outcome of the battle and win sweet prizes! :star:

Mauritz's first contest is here! Thank you, readers! <3

As you readers of the comic may know the latest page of Mauritz ended right before a face-on-face clash between Mirra and the fugitive… monster/boy. So, who do you think'll win? How will the battle end? Show me YOUR version! Read below for all the information you need:

PRIZES:

1:st place – 12 months DA OR Smackjeeves subscription + A physical copy of Mauritz No. 1 OR (if you already own it) I'll give you one of my SUPER EXCLUSIVE filled sketchbooks from this year!
2:nd place - 3 months DA OR Smackjeeves subscription + A physical copy of Mauritz No.1
3:rd-5:th place – 1 month DA OR Smackjeeves subscription + A Mauritz poster (illustrations are chosen from [link] and [link])

How to:

- Describe in text (min 50 words!) and illustrate how you think the battle will end/ the calm after the battle (if you don't like drawing action scenes!) and/or how the victor defeats the other.

EX: "I THINK MONSTERBOI'LL CATCH MIRRA WITH HIS CLAWS AND THEN AFTER BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF HER, HE'LL GO DOWN TO THE KITCHEN AND MAKE A GOOD SOUP OF HER." *insert illustration of Mirra in a kettle* (This is a kind of ironic example, but I really encourage you to use your sense of humor when doing your entries!)

- Put the illustration up on dA and the text in the description and then send me a NOTE with the deviation link. If you do not possess an account at deviantart, mailing me the entries is alright as well! Send them to yossraelsaid@hotmail.com

- You CAN also join this contest with a text-only entry. Then a minimum 200 words-rule applies to your entry. Any writing style is allowed! (Novel, poem, dialouge and so on.)

RULES:

- Keep stuff at 16+ age rating as WORST. No mature stuff! (sex, overly graphical gore, Nazism and so on.)

- Text without illustration is OK, but not the other way around! Your image needs a text description of at least 50 words.

- Any medium is allowed as long as you can manage to get a decent scan up. (Blurry phone camera is not ok.)

REFERENCES WILL COME UP IN THE COMIC'S SITE, CHECK THEM OUT!


MINIMUM CONTESTANT LIMIT = 10
I will put a MCL to this contest to ensure enough participants join in order for all the prizes to be consumed. If this limit hasn't been passed by the deadline the contest will sadly be cancelled.
SO MAKE SURE TO LINK BACK TO THIS SITE IN YOUR ENTRIES TO SPREAD THE WORD!

FINAL NOTES:

- Entries will be linked up on this journal entry as they come in as well as at Mauritz's Smackjeeves-site.

- I encourage humor! I LOVE LAUGHING!

- This contest rewards creative story-making over draftsmanship. So don't feel discouraged! Everyone is on the same ground here!

- No, you don't need to have the correct answer to win!

- The comic will take a break until after the contest. I, however, will NOT take a break and work hard to ship the last 10 pages right after the results!

:star: DEADLINE – JANUARY 25th 2012 :star:

WOHOO

Okay guys, it's January 20th, it's my birthday and this means that Mauritz'll start updating on a weekly basis again!

There'll be at least one update/week, usually on Thursdays for now... You who read the comic before may've gotten used to the 2 pages/week standard, but I've had some problems with getting enough pages made the last two months. Mostly because I wanted the quality of the lay out and pacing to be as high as possible. I'd therefore like to load up some pages before starting this pace again.

The updated Cast and so far "secret" new page on the site'll probably be showing up sometime soon too!

Thank you for your patronage, I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the story!
