Trial by Comics winners for "War" and new theme announced!

in #trialbycomics4 years ago (edited)

Good evening, Steemians of the Trails! We’re here to look at this week’s results of Trail by Comics. The theme was “War”. As I mentioned in the initial post, I was openings the interpretation of war up to both fiction and historical non-fiction. It could mean internal war or convention ideas of war. The theme could span any era or time in history, and was not confined to earth. The creativity displayed each week is what I love most about #trialbycomics, so as often as I can, I try to not stifle that creativity. Without further adieu, here are this week’s winners for “War”.

FIRST PLACE! @jeffersom, once again, takes the second place spot with his entry, ““War between good and evil/ Trial by comics.” This was definitely on the fiction end of the war spectrum, but the art was enough to push it in to the first spot on the podium. I took it as a decades old battle between DC and Marvel. Congratulations! 25.000 SBD’s to you @jeffersom.

SECOND PLACE! @razielmorales nabs second place with her entry, ““Trial by Comics new theme "War”. I’m more of a Trekkie myself, but this Star Wars piece really captured the tense battle from Return of the Jedi. I love the composition and drama between Luke and Vader. The ultimate space fantasy war between good and evil. Congratulations, @razielmorales! 10.000 SBD’s to you.

THIRD PLACE! @bronkong cleans up once again with his entry, ““My Trial by Comics entry [last seconds]”. This reminds me of a similar painting my brother @customnature did. Definitely a look in to dark reality of war and reflects aspects of the world we live in currently. Very moving. Congratulations! 5.000 SBD’s to you, @bronkong!

MERIT AWARDS! As always, there are far more entries to #trailbycomics than the three winners that must be chosen. The comics and art community here flourishes because of the sheer volume of creators and I like to take time to showcase some of the merit awards winners. Honorable mentions. These are a few of the participants of Trail by Comics that deserve support and acknowledgment for making this contest what it has become. Follow, vote and resteem these talented artists. 




Trial by Comics new theme is “Inktober”

I’ve been elated to see so many Steemit artists participating in Inktober this year. I am devastated that I, myself, cannot. I’m getting better at knowing my limitations and priorities and as much as I’d like to do this, I’m desperately trying to get caught up from the shoots I owe in the post Dark Pinup book era. So, I’ll be living vicariously though all of you. This week’s theme is all about inking. No particular theme, but all of your entries must be inked. I’d prefer to see black and white only. Many of you participating in Inktober I’m sure will already have remarkable art to contribute. That’s fine with me. This is just more incentive.  

Deadline for “Inktober” is Sunday, October 14th 5:00UTC 12:00a.m. CTS 


• Up to three entries per trial round [weekly].

• Original artwork only [process documentation strongly encouraged]

• Winners will be chosen based on quality of work, submitted before deadline and ability to adhere to the weekly trial theme

• Must resteem the contest post you’re participating in

• Must include #trialbycomics hashtag

That’s it! Now it’s time to start drawing. Congratulations to all the winners. Thank you all for regularly contributing and making Trail by Comics such a cornerstone of the Steemit art and comics community. I want to take a moment to encourage all of you to head on over to @bryan-imhoff’s @fundition project for his comic, “I Thought It Would Be Zombies…”! @bryan-imhoff is one of the hardest working guys in indie-crypto-comics. If you can spare some crypto, make a contribution […because karma, and you never know when you’ll be do the same with your comic one day]. Join the Trail by Comics Discord channel while you’re at it.


this.... this is .... what have you done?


you will receive like HUNDREDS of entries


it will be BIBLICAL

I was thinking the same thing. I always mean to enter but never get around to it, but with all of us doing #inktober it's going to be tempting.

Yes @veryspider, considering how much people are doing Inktober , it will be huge :)))

Yeah. so hard to choose a winner as they are all good :p

haha this is going to be brilliant :')

I'm totally with you on feeling left out on Inktober, but I know I just need to keep plugging away at my comic and not spread myself even thinner!

I've also been amazed at the Inktober turnout so far, a lot of folks are participating, doing great work, and hitting every single day! I think it could make for a great marketing piece for Steem... I imagine someone with some knowhow could run a report tallying all the payouts for Inktober tagged posts. It would be an interesting stat to see and put out on other social media...

"If you'd been on Steem, Inktober would have been a paying gig..."

I thought I wouldn't join in this year as I'm focusing on my comic too. But couldn't help myself doing a quick inked doodle from work. Doesn't use up any of my usual drawing time and it's refreshing.

First time posting them on Steemit though... I'll see how they do here.

pelts lars with an entry


Good on you and it's also good to know your limitations. I almost wasn't going to do #inktober this year, as I have so much going on, but I'm not as busy as you this month so I thought I'd dive in ;)

I was even thinking about the drawing of the day whilst sat in the dental surgeon chair yesterday waiting for my mouth to name for my wretched root canal.

Your inktobers would have been amazing. Maybe you can do one at the very last day on Halloween just to feel you did it :)

My God, a leap of joy! Again, thank you very much @konmmienezuspad and the entire team of Trial by comics...I love participating in this contest...Thank you, thank you for taking my job as a winner again. A hug..

Well I am looking forward to the entries! I've been enjoying myself with all the gorgeous Inktober pieces, I'm sure this contest would make people work even harder with their artworks ^_^.

This is quite a great idea on the theme. I bet a lot of artist will join this week! I mean A LOT!
I haven't got time to join inktober as well. I only draw 1 entry every year. Whahahhaha.. Good luck to those who will join XD and to me, maybe I can join too.
