Well, to quote the rules on the first page:

- Entries must be 3-10 pages
- Entries must contain original characters (no fanfics/doujin)
- Entries must conform to CAA content guidelines (PM if unsure)
- Entries must be inked and toned/colored
- Artists must post their pages in this forum, with the title and an idea for next month's theme


I don't know if the page limit is set in stone, though. Maybe a mod can clear that up.

That's what the initial rules say, HOWEVER, Ashley was asked the same question later in this very same thread....
what if it's like a little more than 10 pages like 11 or 12?

Ashley wrote:Well, we originally created that page count to give artists a feasible amount of work to complete--basically, to let people know we weren't expecting a full-blown volume of work here. But I suppose if you can pull it off, more power to ya.

Haha, I think Esoteric gets that point.

Wait--how is it already the 18th? Blasted time-warps...

Gah, how are there only six days left?

I will draw. Draw like the storm and the fury.

But first, my architecture homework.

Not going to be able to do it this month either. I'm getting extra hours at work, that I don't particularly want, but I need the money so I'm working them. bleh

And off topic - are you an architecture student as well Aileen?

Haha, yep. I'm about halfway into the first semester of my second year. So far, everything I've been told about being an architecture major appears to be true.

And, on a related note, I wasn't able to get anything finished because of pesky homework obligations. I vote we extend the contest into October. Alright with everyone? Same theme.

Ooh, maybe I can actually participate then...

And Aileen - that's cool. I'm graduating with my Bach in Environmental Design this December, and with my Master's in Arch Design next December. Keep plugging on, even if it all seems crazy now, it'll all be worth it.

Are these monthly manga contests still going on? I'm an old member just returning, and I saw this and was interested in joining in! :D
Are there prizes to these contests? or is it just for fun? Either way, I'd still like to join in as it'd give me an incentive to keep drawing :)

I think we're all too busy in school at the moment. But feel free to join in! As far as I know, the current contest is still open.
I don't think there are prizes beyond bragging rights and getting to choose the next topic. ^^

Update, from the long-absent me.

The current contest, with the theme Imagination/Imaginary Friends, has been extended to a December 31st deadline due to lack of entries.

I'm definitely going to take advantage of winter break and try to get something posted. Y'know, now that I don't have to spend 20+ hours a week on architecture homework. How exciting.

Ooh! I'd definitely like to get something done then. I'm done this Friday with school, and would like the challenge.

(how's your architecture going, Aileen? I just turned in my grad school app last week, and present my final project on Friday.)

Good luck with your project, soul!
I finished up my studio class last Thursday, so I'm just enjoying being able to sleep again for right now. I'm feeling a little anxious when I think about next semester, though. But hey, I've got over a month to mentally prepare myself.

Sleep? What is this sleep you speak of? lol
Have fun during your month of freedom. Decompressing from architecture is never a bad thing.

Since there are no entries, I'd like to give my idea, since I can't figure out how to pull this off, maybe someone can do it for me. Seriously I've attempted a few scenerios (sp?) but I can't pull it off.

[spoiler]
A young boy and another boy are telling each other about their imaginary friends and everything they can do. The first boy tells the other that his imaginary friend is real, as does the other. The boys are now teenagers, and they talk about the times they spent together and their imaginary friends. The first one says that he still does, and his friend thinks he's crazy. That's when the first one says that He's real, his name is Jesus. Not sure to convert the friend or not, but eh that's the story.

I know when I was little since I was an only child, I would ask Jesus to play monopoly, or sorry, or whatever games I wanted to play...He always won...lol.[/spoiler]

Yes, the contest is still going on. The deadline is December 31st, so if you have an entry, submit it by then. The theme is imagination/imaginary friends.

Hmm. Maybe I should hurry up and finish my entry.

Darn it I really wanted to enter this one! >_< *sobs*
but... T_T I doubt that I'll have my comic finished for this contest (sorry I had too much going on) ... though I did get several pages done.

but I am still trying to see how much I can accomplish by the 31st. is there a certain time that the entry has to be in by? or just any time that day will work?

Well, taking the previous contests into consideration, I have to say... sometime before Saturday, January 3rd. I figure if we don't get any entries by then, we can get a new theme and try again. I'm still working on my entry, though. I'd forgotten how long it takes to draw out pages... *sigh*

Anyways, I say go ahead and post your entry once you get it done. Good luck.
