I won? Well, that was a darn fun contest, crabby -- makes me want to host a really fun one. So that's what I'm going to try to do. First, let me warm you up with a true fact:
- Assuming no frame stretching, a stripcreator comic (not counting title bar) is almost exactly the same shape as a US dollar bill. Size may vary depending on your monitor size, and whatnot, but the proportions will be similar. For those of you in Canada, the UK, Australia, or elsewhere, your mileage (er, kilometrage) may vary, but you'll probably find somewhat similar proportions to your paper money.
Anyway, on to the rules you will have to do battle with:
- This contest is based on the assumption that the world we create in our comics here is its own country, complete with its population of pink donkeys, half park benches, shredded airplanes, etc.
- Like other civilized countries, this one requires some means of exchange. Here it takes the form of paper money. Your mission is to design it.
- Your submitted "comic" will, as a whole, be the prototype for one of this happy nation's many pieces of legal tender.
- You must determine the value of the bill you create, both in a denomination, and a unit. Legal values include, for instance 500 Yen, 28 Gabes, 4.96 Zjnqt, etc.
- One of the text fields in your comic (narration box or dialogue box) must contain the value of your bill (as defined above), and nothing else. Other than that, you are free to design however you want.
- Multiple entries are permitted and encouraged.
- I'll evaluate the mintings in 60 hours.
