WHYTMANGA TOURNAMENT 2013! OPEN!

Journal Entry: Sat May 18, 2013, 11:54 PM
The WhytManga Tournament is to help pull the art community together and to help other artists get some recognition for their work, I feel bad when good art doesnt get viewed and random ones do, its time for all yaw to shine!(cheezy i know). Its also to help all participants improve their art by competing with other in a friendly and fun manner! Entries will be given shout outs during the contest just to show others their competition.

The Whyt Manga Tournament is sponsored by SmithMicro (Creators of Manga Studio)
my.smithmicro.com/

HOW IT WORKS
There are 5 rounds with 5 different art challenges.
First round-
I will pick my TOP 16 Entries out of all entries
Second round-
Knock out stageout of the TOP 16, each artist will face one another, artist A vs artist B (as pairs), they will be assigned a new challenge and I will pick the one i think is better from each pair. to create a TOP 8.
Third Round- Quarter finals
same with the second round but with a new challenge to create the TOP 4
Fourth Round- Semi finals
same with the third round but with a new challenge to create the TOP 2
Fifth Round- Finals
the TOP 2 artists will face off for victory and the title of the winner of the Tournament.

Any questions? Please leave the in the comments below or at the other already mentioned social networks, links below!
FAQs - Frequently asked questions:

1. Can we do crossovers of our characters with apple black characters, also can we do crossovers with popular characters of other famous manga like bleach, naruto, soul eater, samurai champloo, death note etc with apple black characters? - yes.
2. can we have more reference of your characters? no need, apart from the gallery i provided for you guys, there are more references through out the gallery and if you still need refrences, just wing it
3. height of apple black characters? osamu, saito, ryuzaki and sano are about 5.7 and then yurii and neon are about 5.6, their ages are about 12-13-14, so they are young.
4. can we draw other apple black characters apart from the main 6? i reluctantly said yes, but be careful, i do not have too much reference on them and do not plan on talking about them anytime soon and some of them are FIRST DRAFTS, so they might not look like that in the actual manga. but yes, here are more apple black characters, whom are older:
5. Is this tournament only for manga artists? nope!, all artists are allowed. digital, traditional, realistic...sculpture! is all allowed, all artists are welcome! have fun!.
6. All ages are allowed to enter the contest and participants from everywhere are allowed in! have fun folks!.
7. How will we know the who qualifies for the next round? I will make a new video for each of the 5 rounds.
8. How do we know if we qualify for the next round? I will make announcements on all my social networks and make a new video announcing winners.

the drawing must be clear and sharp, so that it has a far chance against others, so that i can judge it very well, so that we have the full experience.

I have mixed feelings about entering this contest..
I don't have a Youtube account either!
But, MS 5 is really tempting! DX

Actually, getting SmithMicro to sponser your contest is impressive. :clap:
Congrats, and good luck with your tournament! c:

So going to enter!
Btw when you say 2 characters does that mean two of the kids or can we pick some other sidecharacters as well? Like Wiiwerth, Mikael, Naomi or Angelo (or princess Zion lol)
