Webtoon Contest

Webtoon is having a short story contest with a top prize of 15k. https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/c ... ntest-2020 They lost me at a minimum of 30 panels per episode and 3 to 5 episodes for the complete story. I am geared for 1 illustration 1 vignette. It would still be fun to see someone from here win it. :ob

Re: Webtoon Contest

Oh dear, a comic strip like that is a lot of work. What those guys want to see is consistency, coherence and composition, creating a consumable narrative, so to say. I have little doubt that such effort is usually heavily underestimate like so many other things. Kudos to those, who will give it a go. I'd be thrilled, if someone dared try that with Verve, of course! :D :hyper:
But, yeah, a single vignette will not get you even past start, I'm afraid. :shrug:
Here to help! :D

Re: Webtoon Contest

That’s for sure. I think Vignettes are more suited for a one page illustration anyway. Done correctly the illustration should show a side of the story not referenced in the writing in order to give it depth because it is such a short form. It has me wondering if Lord Dunsany ever tried that but of course he had no need to. People like Dunsany, Saki and O’Henry were true masters.

I do wish someone here would tackle this contest. It would be very cool to see Verve used And would actually bring Verve to the attention of quite possibly millions. There are only a handful of people here able to handle both the sequential art and the writing. You could do it., Olivier, Knacki and a few more. 15 k is a decent prize. I would love to try it but I am too far into what I am doing now. I am afraid if I take a detour the train will derail and I will never arrive at my destination.
