Alright! down to the semi-finals!

The Arena: “much ado about hotness…”

This arena is a rippling obsidian field that lies at the foot of a recently-erupted active volcano. The arena is a large, upraised field of ground, surrounded on all sides by 20-foot wide rivers of lava, and roofed off with thick layers of burning ash clouds.
Out of the frying pan, and into the fire…

Who will walk away in this heated match between the short and ever-oveable Garden Gnome, and the quick and highly adaptable 42? lets just hope no one falls off the battlefield!

REMEMBER!
-no one-hit kills
-no re-writing history
-no douchebaggery (I just wanted to say that.)
-opponent should not be a major part of your intro pages
-max pages of two per turn
-four days per turn to complete pages.
(I understand that many people are busy, but many people also want these fights to continue at a nice pace. so i increased the time-frame just a bit, to allow for minor delays.)

For the semifinals, I will allow each contestant to make one challenge to their opponent, to try and set up a personal contest or “duel” between them. If the other fighter accepts, and I believe that the contest will match the action-y parameters of Fightsplosion, then it will be allowed.



the person who will start this round off will be 42!
<= dead and buried.

You don't have to wait. If you have questions about using a tablet I will attempt to impart advice as best I can. Unless you think the fact that we are in competition means that I would sabotage you! BWHAHAHA!!! No way would I do that. But, it's up to you. ^_^

alright, i wanna try doing some more fightsplosion with my tablet. its more convenient. (none of that bitchy scanner-fade i get normally)


do you recommend fleshing it out lightly, as you would a normal drawing, and use that as a background basis for you to build off of?
or do you do something different?
(mostly my frustration is just dealing with the tablet itself. so wierd to get used to.)

Well, Radec, I treat drawing on my tablet the same way I'd draw on paper, but with a tablet you get nice added features like layers, just as if you were using tracing paper but without as big of a mess. I sketch on one layer, clean it up, draw over it in another layer, color in another layer, etc. It is weird to get used to at first, but after a while you'll be drawing on paper and make a mistake and one day you'll be thinking to yourself “ctl-z” aka “undo” and then realize, crap, it doesn't work that way on paper! Make sure your pen is calibrated to react to pressure - for thickness of the lines you draw. Have you tried any tablet tutorials? I recommend checking out gimp.org, they have some decent tutorials there to give you an idea, and I'm sure you can do a nice google search for some too.

eh, i cant seem to get my pen calibrated right for pressure.
sometimes it works, but sometimes it just starts freaking out on me and changing the widths randomly.

Sorry it took so long, I DID do a second page, but something bad happened to it.
anyways, it wasn't very important. just him talking about how Gnomes are sticklers for punctuality, thus explaining why he always seems to get to the arena before his opponent XD.
also, a nice little play-on-words is involved here.
he is a master of Gnomejutsu, the art of the hidden gardener!
*edit* sorry for the lack of panels. I meant to add ink them in, but I guess I forgot to! also, I forgot to shade the gnomes other hand XD

Alright, i got an idea of where this should go.
and i think its better than any “angry gnome” schtick.
In all honesty, I'm getting tired of that being the only way my gnome wins.
id rather just have him win the old-fashioned way: through kick-assery.

aaanyways…
now that it's friday night, I finally have time to start working on my pages!
yes… START.
sorry.

Alright, I finished my first page.
I'm just going to scribble up the second real fast, and post it soon as possible.
but if i don't finish it in time, i tried to leave enough room for alejkhan to work with…
I don't know WHY i wanted to use my linework pens for this one. I just did.
so NYAH!

YAYS!
after about 50-60 minutes with my tablet and photoshop, ive got the second page done!
i think i did nicely on that hand of LAVALIKE DOOM!

(in case you cant tell, she got knocked off the arena and into the lava, but she copied the properties of it and begun to climb back into the arena.)

Too lazy to draw all that, though.
