Here’s your chance to win original artwork from Marc Bolton’s Sketch-Up! Hello, potential contest winners! Marc here, with a special announcement! Every week, I draw something and put it up here on the website. I call it “Sketch-Up”, and it’s a great excuse for me to practice drawing every week. I started a series called “Marvel Vs. DC” where I pit one Marvel character against one DC character. It’s fun, and something you don’t really get to see in the comics. I’ve chosen the two different characters up to this point, but now it’s your turn!
You choose any two characters, one from Marvel and one from DC, and put your suggestion in the comments of this post, and Tim and I will choose the pairing we like the most! I’ll draw it, put it up on the “Sketch of the Week” with your name it the post, and I’ll send the finished drawing to you!
There are a few rules to this. One- You can choose any Marvel or DC character I’ve already drawn, but not two that have been in a drawing together. For example- I’ve done Deadpool and Power Girl-
and I’ve drawn Groot and Superman-
You can choose “Groot Vs. Power Girl” or “Deadpool Vs. Superman” but not “Deadpool Vs. Power Girl”.
Two- The contest will last two weeks, starting tonight. So at 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time on May 20th, 2014, the polls will be closed. We’ll announce the winner the evening of Wednesday, May 21st with a new post and ask that the person privately give us their mailing address. I’ll put up the artwork in the “Sketch of the Week” here on the website and send it in the mail the following week. The piece will be a black and white inked drawing of your submission!
Three- I’ll allow alternate universe, particular costumes/versions, and whatever else stuff you put in your submission, but please keep it somewhat brief, and leave the action of the characters to me. Also, only one Marvel and one DC character; no Dark Horse or Gold Key characters, that’s for another giveaway. 😀 For example, it’s okay to suggest “Red Son Superman Vs. Werewolf Captain America” but not “Red Son Superman throwing an upper cut at Werewolf Captain America who’s biting Supe’s foot” or “The Goon Vs. Dr. Solar, Son of the Atom”.
You can check out the “Sketches” section of the website to look at all my examples, but here’s some more examples. Good luck and send in those suggestions!
