Default An oekaki drawing competition?

I've been considering having a drawing competition for the Pokékaki almost since I released it, but I have had no idea who would participate. The competition would be strictly using the Pokékaki, meaning everyone is on level ground with the tools they get to use: ChibiPaint or Shi-Painter.

Would you participate? Be sure to vote.

I wish I could have a combination answer. Yes, I'd love to do the competition, as my competitive spirit burns ferociously, but I know a whoooole lot of people draw about 100x better than me, so I'd also like to do it for fun, but without all the pity prizes.

I've been thinking of suggesting to have some artsy-fartsy contests for a while now, just it never once came to my mind when I was in a place to suggest it of course. I personally would love to do this, I think it'd be a lot of fun! Though, I'm rather competitive and can be a sore looser, however, I accept that I'm not that good of a drawer and that there are a handful of people here who are incredibly gifted at digital art who would no doubt be entering. But I will not let that stop me, I still love this idea a lot! Though I'll need to practice with the Oekaki a bit more, that thing is harder to draw in than SAI.

But this looks like fun, so I might as well give it a shot if you decide to have this competition. ^^

Hey, we did have that Luxray drawing contest once.

As a realist digital painter, I don't think it would be fair for me to enter competitively, though. :x

Oh yeah, I remember that. That was a long time ago. I think it was a 5-minute limit to draw.

I think I should try the drawing contest if I can, huh? Hope I can draw just about everything.

There is no topic yet, and no prizes have yet been decided. This thread is just to see who would be interested in such a thing.

I can imagine it being pretty neat if in the end all the submissions were compiled into a collage, and the only prize was getting to be a part of it.

Also, I do suggest to start practicing now and get used to how to use the three different applets. Once you log in, you can choose here: http://pokekaki.com/draw_select.php

Ahaha, I think I need to get used to my Magic Mouse and the trackpad, lest I get stuck doodling blanks.

This gives me a great reason to spend hours with my lovely new old drawing tablet. I can't wait to develop some basic skill! : D

Sometimes I start to envy people with drawing tablets and also these Windows tablets that can draw directly on the Oekaki.

But I'm sure that I can do well with just a mouse as long as I am careful with the points of lines and curves. Here goes...

If possible, I'd give you my tablet. It feels so awkward drawing directly on to my screen, I'm so used to looking down at a paper and watching the lines come off my pen, instead of the lines appear from the air on a screen.
I got my tablet in the cheapest of ways possible that's not a Thrift Store; cheap old computer show. They had a few cool things there, nice looking laptops, but the one thing that caught my eye was a little tablet. At the time I was animating, but it never really set off for me, and then I got in to sprite animation, so I let the tablet gather dust. No one I know has a tablet with the same NAME, even, but it works and draws and that's all that matters. (I'd like to know how to use it, though. Teaching myself is haaaaard.)

I would love to join in. But for some reason my mouse hand has really gone un-steady and seems as though it's shaking all the time... It's impossible for me to draw what even looks like a straight line, let alone a good curve line. And I may be part of the group who doesn't have access to a tablet... Maybe if I can steady my hand I may join in.

Or use line and curves instead of drawing free-hand? That's what I do most of the time with my mouse.
