08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

Thanks to all the participants for all the great entries and for all the great commentary from the DA community!

Thanks again to our participants as we now have our top 6 (there was a tie for 6th). The judging was a bit varied with most of the entries making different judges top 15. In no particular order our 6 finalist so far are:

1) The Fugitives
2) Morgalla
3) Soviet Superwoman
4) The Celtic Clan
5) Envoy
6) Sifao

With Rounds 1, 2  and the the judging portion of Round 3 complete, we now move into the voting stage where YOU decide our 7th finalist (as there was a tie for 6th). I have worked out the details for the top 7 to have a prize option. I'll contact the top 7 at the conclusion of the contest with details. Here's how this stage works. You have 2 ways to vote:

1) Voting in the Deviantart poll below on this page.

2) Facebook vote: I have posted the 10 Challenge Round Finalist Here: www.facebook.com/pages/Argo-Co… Simply like the Argo Comics Facebook Page (the tab to the right, under the Argo Comics banner), then hit like on the entry you are voting for. Votes that do not like the page will be disqualified. We'll be adding some exclusive contest extras on the FB page!

Deadline for voting: September 15, 2012. As with many entertainment media contest, you can show support by voting with both methods (no text voting for this one though).

After the voting we will head to Round 4 where the Argo Comics staff (seperate from the judging panel) will vote on the ultimate winner!

Please review the previous Journal entries if you need a referesher on the details of the contest. Questions have surfaced about how many winners will be chosen. As previously stated there is one (we may have something cooked up for the finalist though). Unfortunately we can't advance the story of Argo 5 story monthly guest stars so it's a one shot deal as of right now. Holding another contest such as this will most likey be dependant on the sales of the issue (a dip in our numbers will indicate that readers are not interested in featured guest stars).

Another point that further clarification was asked about: Argo Comics will hold all rights to the issue of Argo 5 that the character(s) appears in but you retain all the rights and ownership of your character(s). Argo Comics will be allowed to reprint and promote the issue in any format but we would not use the character(s) in future stories without the expressed consent of the character's owner.

Best of luck to all the finalist!
