:iconarger:
Arger's the winner of our most recent contest, the OC Tournament!  Her bold and daring choices for her Hoodling won her the spot as "Queen of the Contest."  Arger's Imagica wow'd us with her creativity and sparklingly unique personality.  If you haven't checked out this fantastic character and her struggles in becoming the top Hoodling, you are truly missing out.

:iconprydester:
Prydester is the New Recruit winner of our most recent contest, the OC Tournament!  Prydester's continuous storyline kept us engaged and interested in her uniquely-designed and unbelievably lovable OC, Kinetic.  Kinetic kept us thinking and laughing.  With a rich and interesting family life and a unique personality and perspective, watching Kinetic grow and change as a character was not only fascinating but fun!  Check out Prydester's winning OC, he is one for the fan-history books!

:new:06/08/11: FIRST EVER OFFICIAL X-MEN: EVOLUTION OC TOURNAMENT: FINALLY ENDS!  WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

I can't believe that it's finally over.  This contest has finally come to a close and I am shocked and proud in regards to all of our contestants and entries.  The goal of this contest was to unify the community and I think that this contest has done just that.  I'm just a little in awe that we have all made it to the end.  You all should be proud of yourselves.  Congratulations to EVERYONE.

OK! You have all been VERY patient with us, so now, over a week later (there was a lot of deliberating to do >_>) the Evo-Obsessed-Club and I are HAPPY to present to you the RESULTS of the FIRST EVER, and, in my oh-so-humble opinion, AMAZINGLY SUCCESSFUL X-MEN: EVOLUTION ORIGINAL CHARACTER TOURNAMENT!

We started out with 38 Contestants, 24 New Recruits and and 14 Hoodlings. Over the last 6 months, you folks have worked hard, and submitted 894 individual comic pages. EIGHT HUNDRED. AND NINETY FOUR. And that doesn't even count the character sheets, extra side work, like the Valentine's Contest or side characters who didn't quite make the contest deadline! Good lord!

From that initial 38, over the months, the number was wheedled down to just 3 New Recruits, and 3 Hoodlings. Your mystery judges convened month after month to determine the best of the best, and now... Now we have our results.

So, I now present to you, our
TOP NEW RECRUIT and TOP HOODLING
:iconprydester:'s Kinetic and :iconarger:'s Imagica

I hope you all give them big congratulations, and huzzah's! Though we did not initially start this contest with the idea of having any sort of a prize, Rain and I discussed it, and we decided that the LEAST we could do is offer arger and Prydester a comic. SO! If your username happens to be Prydester or Arger, CONGRATULATIONS! You get a free mini-comic by the club master at your OC's chosen team (that means Prydester's with the fantastically epic and prolific :deBlazeRocket: and Arger gets stuck with me...Poor, poor Arger XD)!  We will create a comic starring your OC, and up to 4 other characters of your choice.  Oooooooo! Neat!  If the Brotherhood Club had a subscription, we would feature you in the journal >___________>;;; however, the EOC will be featuring you in their journal.

Meanwhile... on the other side of the contest, the judges decided that, since this is the end of the contest, and kind of like the end of school year, we would come up with superlatives for all your characters! Sort of like a little yearbook title for you. Unfortunately, if you dropped out of the contest (AKA didn't submit a comic even though you had passed the previous round's elimination) youuuuuu.... don't get a superlative. Ah well. But for the rest of you! I hope you enjoy these little shout outs to your OCs

I, personally, would like to take a quick moment to fully express how awesome arger's final entry to the contest was.  Arger's comic was fantastic.  It truly embraced the facets of creating an interesting character, especially an OC.  She pulled out all the stops with a multi-paged colored comic prominently featuring other contestants.  She truly embraced the spirit of community in this contest that Blaze and I stress so hard.  If that wasn't enough she gave us a dramatic story with bold, real consequences for her OC.  Her character changed by the end of that comic.  She became a dynamic character, the situation she ended up in affecting every factor of the character's pre-established being.  It changed her mentally, physically,and  emotionally.  It changed her whole personality from a self-absorbed, fashion-obsessed, flippant, care-free spirit to character affected by the real pain of a person caught in the middle of a war she's forced to fight.  Arger gave her character a REASON to be a member of the Brotherhood.  She gave her character a wake up call and allied herself permanently on the side of Magneto.  What a bold, daring, and wildly appropriate choice.  She really WENT for it in Phase 6, and I for one am openly applauding.  Arger truly deserves her title as "Queen of the Contest."  Brava, miss.  You should be proud.  

If you haven't seen this Hoodling's FANTASTIC and contest-winning entry, you simply must read.  It is, hands down, one of the best OC comics I have ever read. <a href=arger.deviantart.com/art/Rescu…">    

Thanks one last time to :iconstar-trekking: for the GREAT idea of the OC Tournament in the first place. :D

:new:5/26/11: FIRST EVER OFFICIAL X-MEN: EVOLUTION OC TOURNAMENT: PHASE 6 ENDS TOMORROW!
OMG I DON'T BELIEVE IT! The Evo-Obsessed-Club and The Brotherhood Club have come together to create the first ever OC Tournament. CHECK IT OUT. And don't forget to see the AWESOME PROMO!

The judging was long. The judging was tough. The judging... broke several of our computers, apparently. BUT JUDGE WE DID, and RESULTS YOU MAY HAVE. More than any round in the past, there were some heated debates on this round. We eventually had to come down to, in several cases, not only this round's comic and story, but previous round's submissions as well, and how the stories, overall, stacked up against each other. NOT. An easy task, folks.

We were very happy with all your entries. Truly, there was almost no one we felt deserved
elimination this round, which is why it's taken us so long to come to a verdict. (that, and the aforementioned computer troubles. >_>) We just want to let you all know that we really do appreciate all the work you've put into this contest. We really, really do. Thank you all SO MUCH

No spotlighters, this round- getting to proceed into the FINALS is it's own spotlight, yeah? I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with your prompt for the Final... Read on to find out what it is, and who made it. (Bum bum BUMMMMMMM!)

:new: 6/3- Can you believe it?  The Final Phase of the First Ever Official X-Men: Evolution Original Character Tournament has ended.  HERE WE ARE.  At the end.  After HALF A YEAR of work and effort and getting to know all the characters...it comes down to this.  Now, I won't get sentimental just yet.  No, no, that'll be next journal...WHEN THE WINNERS ARE ANNOUNCED.  For now, check out our final sensational six and their ending entries.  Congratulations, contestants!  You were the cream of the crop and DID NOT DISAPPOINT, each one of you submitting an entry...proving you earned your place with your dedication.  You should all be VERY proud of yourselves.  Relax!  And enjoy so well-deserved time off. :)

Phase 6 Begins: April 21
Phase 6 Ends: May 27


The end of Phase Phive saw the elimination of some great characters. But, as with all rounds, someone had to go. If you CANNOT FIND YOUR CHARACTER listed in the new prompts, then I'm afraid they were one of those who were eliminated. THANK YOU for your efforts in Phases 1 through 5. This contest would not be NEAR as fun without everyone entering who did. The eliminated characters are now considered SPECTATOR characters. Spectator characters are still AT the annex, but are no longer participating in the missions. So, other still participating characters can have your character in their comics, but your character is no longer in the competition.

If you are uncomfortable with your character remaining in the contest while you, yourself, are no longer involved, PLEASE LET US KNOW. Send a note to TheBrotherhoodclub or the Evo-Obsessed-Club and tell us. We will issue a statement letting the remaining contestants know that your character has opted to return to their home, and is no longer chillaxing at their respective base. IF YOUR ROOMMATE WAS AXED, please assume that you are still rooming with that character. We MAY, at a much later date, reassign roommates, but for now, roommates should remain as they were in Phase 2.

:iconstarplz:IMPORTANT INFORMATION:iconstarplz:

This is THE FINAL ROUND. At the end of this round, we will announce our top Hoodling, and our top New Recruit! Please do your best to try and secure these bragging rights, and, as always, have fun with it!


And now... Phase 6; THE FINAL STAGE

:iconstarplz:TEAM ASSIGNMENTS AND MISSIONS:iconstarplz:

For Phase 6, all OCs have the SAME PROMPT. You may assume your OC is with the others, or you can go it solo. That is up to you. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS.



When your OC finally comes around, they find themselves in clear cell. It's not apparent what the walls are made of, exactly, but it's absolutely stronger than it looks, and doesn't really want to break. Other characters are also being held in the same compound.

Apparently, the Sentinels have brought your character to Area51. Hey- Trask had to throw in with SOMEONE after the OFFICIAL government shut him down. Anyway, your character is trapped. What are they going to do? What is going to be done TO them?!

It's time for your character to prove themselves. They've gotta try bustin' outta this joint- it's their only chance! But will they succeed?


It's up to you.


It's ALL up to you this round.

That's right. For the past five rounds, rainrach and BlazeRocket have held your hands, giving you rules, constraints and stipulations to meet, but not this time. This time, you're on your own. YOU chose your team mates, YOU chose what happens, YOU chose who shows up. The only thing you've gotta do is turn in your entry on time, and in comic format. That's it. Any of you ever heard the expression "Giving a person enough rope to hang themselves with?" Well- that's what we're doing. Show us you have what it takes to make a GOOD comic, and win this contest. We dare you.

P.S.
Though it's not a rule this round, the judges DO like to see the other OC's in your comic. NOT A RULE. Nooo. But. Y'know. I'm not sayin'. I'm just sayin'.



This should go without stating, but if any contestant DOESN'T turn in an comic for Phase 6, you will be automatically eliminated (just like those who didn't submit for Phases 3, 4 & 5). PLEASE don't make us have to eliminate your character WHO WE LOVE because you didn't submit an entry. Especially not on the Final Round. Really. It really- REALLY disappoints us. If you think you're not going to be able to make us, at least tell us BEFORE the final day of the contest? Although... we'd like it best of all if NO ONE dropped out this round.

Your entries will be judged by five MYSTERY judges (though I'm sure you can guess two of them :roll: ). Some of which are Evo fans, some of which know nothing about X-men at all. This is to gather an UNBIASED opinion on your story telling skills, as well as how well you're fitting into the X-universe. The judges will read these comics and rate.

PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES. If you don't want to read those giant paragraphs, just read the underlined parts. If you have QUESTIONS about the underlined parts...read the paragraph. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE ENTIRE JOURNAL BEFORE ASKING A QUESTION. I REALLY don't want to facepalm this Phase. Please don't make me. My face hurts so much from self-inflicted palming already. I don't write/edit these rules for my health, you know. Please read first.



:iconstarplz:PHASE 6 RULES and HELPFUL HINTS:iconstarplz:
Rule 1: Submit all comic pages WHEN THE COMIC IS COMPLETED. Do NOT submit comic pages one at a time as you complete them. Note the entire comic to the club all together. You can submit the comic without an ending if you're running late. Really! That's fine! You can submit it half-finished! But be aware that we're judging based on STORY. You may submit pages AFTER the deadline if you like, but you run the risk of submitting AFTER the judges have already gone over your comic and scored it.

Rule 2: Comics must be at least one page in length. You can do more than one page but no less. There should be at LEAST two panels on a comic page.


Helpful Hint 1: Your piece will be judged NOT ONLY on creativity, clarity, and conformity, but ALSO your past performance in the tournament. This means that not only will your piece be judged on how interestingly and conservatively you complete your assignment, but also on how CLEAR the storytelling is and how well it remains within the parameters of the prompt. If we don't know what's going on in the story, that's a problem. Please make sure what's going on is obvious. Additionally, this round, we will be looking back on all your previous entries as well. If you think maybe you didn't do so well in past rounds, now might be a good time to pull out all the stops. It should be clear by now we're not judging on artistic skill. As a few entries demonstrated, you can draw stick figures, and STILL have it clear what's going on in the story. DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED by your artistic level.

Helpful Hint 2: Note your comic entries to the correct club. New Recruits (X-Men) are to be submitted to the Evo-Obsessed-Club . Hoodlings (Brotherhood) are to be submitted to TheBrotherhoodclub . Send your comic pages in a NOTE to the clubs. A NOTE.

Helpful Hint 3: Link your comic pages together. Because, really, come on, the judges have to click through 10 entries of varying length and YOU decide you're not going to link you pages together? It's REALLY TIME-CONSUMING and IRRITATING for me and EVERYONE else reading the comic to click back and forth between the gallery and the next page. It makes me associate your piece with BAD FEELINGS and when I'm eliminating people this round and it's between YOU and someone who actually linked their pages together...GUESS WHO I'M GONNA PICK TO GO? So, if you make a multi-paged comic...FOR THE LOVE OF MAGNETO, link to the next comic page in the artist's comments of your piece. ON EVERY PAGE. And maybe (not a requirement) include a link to the first page on EVERY PAGE too? This makes it MUCH easier for teammates, other contestants, and judges (WINKWINK) to navigate through your comics. Plus, it's like 15 extra seconds to add a link in the artist's comments. Not that hard, people.


Tournament Phase 6 Begins: April 21
Tournament Phase 6 Ends: May 27

5/12/11: A NOTE ABOUT EXTRAS!

:new: Hey, ya'll!  I wanted to let you know that once the Evo OC Tournament is over the Brotherhood Club will no longer be accepting or featuring extras in the journal or in favorites.  This is, of course, not because I don't wuv you all, it's just that this is the BROTHERHOOD club, not an OC club.  Sure, for the sake of the tournament we accepted them, but once the tournament is over, I'm not accepting a single extra and they won't be in the journal anymore.  They'll STILL be in the favorites, I'm not DE-FAVING, but they won't be featured.  Just thought I'd give you all a head's up as the tournament gets closer to concluding!

I have started a pool on my page ( rainrach ) to make our fine club into a SUPER GROUP!  Why?  I miss having thumbnails in the journal (especially for the OC Tourney) and having folders within folders for our contests. I also want to make a rad looking journal skin.  It would be nice to be a super group again.  So please, if you can donate some points, please head over to my page ( rainrach ) and donate to the Brotherhood!  Thankies!

Also check out some Extras for the competition below!  If you have fan art for the tournament that you want displayed, note me!  Even if you're out of the contest, we're still happy to display your fan art (NOTE: The "extras" section is specifically reserved for extras RELATING to the CONTEST.  So, anything that would focus solely your character or other characters within the confines of the contest and it's timeline.  All extras must directly related to the contest to be accepted.):

1/29/11: THE SAD PASSING OF BOYD KIRKLAND

(From the Evo-Obsessed-Club's journal): On the 27th of this month, Boyd Kirkland passed away while waiting for a new lung at UCLA Medical Center. Mr. Kirkland was the producer of X-men: Evolution. Without him, we would have never had this wonderful show, and many others, and he will be missed. Our condolences go out to his friends and family.

You can submit the comic without an ending if you're running late. Really! That's fine! You can submit it half-finished! But be aware that we're judging based on STORY. You may submit pages AFTER the deadline if you like, but you run the risk of submitting AFTER the judges have already gone over your comic and scored it.

Rule 2: Comics must be at least one page in length. You can do more than one page but no less. There should be at LEAST two panels on a comic page.


Helpful Hint 1: Your piece will be judged NOT ONLY on creativity, clarity, and conformity, but ALSO your past performance in the tournament. This means that not only will your piece be judged on how interestingly and conservatively you complete your assignment, but also on how CLEAR the storytelling is and how well it remains within the parameters of the prompt. If we don't know what's going on in the story, that's a problem. Please make sure what's going on is obvious. Additionally, this round, we will be looking back on all your previous entries as well. If you think maybe you didn't do so well in past rounds, now might be a good time to pull out all the stops. It should be clear by now we're not judging on artistic skill. As a few entries demonstrated, you can draw stick figures, and STILL have it clear what's going on in the story. DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED by your artistic level.

Helpful Hint 2: Note your comic entries to the correct club. New Recruits (X-Men) are to be submitted to the Evo-Obsessed-Club . Hoodlings (Brotherhood) are to be submitted to TheBrotherhoodclub . Send your comic pages in a NOTE to the clubs. A NOTE.

Helpful Hint 3: Link your comic pages together. Because, really, come on, the judges have to click through 10 entries of varying length and YOU decide you're not going to link you pages together? It's REALLY TIME-CONSUMING and IRRITATING for me and EVERYONE else reading the comic to click back and forth between the gallery and the next page. It makes me associate your piece with BAD FEELINGS and when I'm eliminating people this round and it's between YOU and someone who actually linked their pages together...GUESS WHO I'M GONNA PICK TO GO? So, if you make a multi-paged comic...FOR THE LOVE OF MAGNETO, link to the next comic page in the artist's comments of your piece. ON EVERY PAGE. And maybe (not a requirement) include a link to the first page on EVERY PAGE too? This makes it MUCH easier for teammates, other contestants, and judges (WINKWINK) to navigate through your comics. Plus, it's like 15 extra seconds to add a link in the artist's comments. Not that hard, people.


Tournament Phase 6 Begins: April 21
Tournament Phase 6 Ends: May 27

5/12/11: A NOTE ABOUT EXTRAS!

:new: Hey, ya'll!  I wanted to let you know that once the Evo OC Tournament is over the Brotherhood Club will no longer be accepting or featuring extras in the journal or in favorites.  This is, of course, not because I don't wuv you all, it's just that this is the BROTHERHOOD club, not an OC club.  Sure, for the sake of the tournament we accepted them, but once the tournament is over, I'm not accepting a single extra and they won't be in the journal anymore.  They'll STILL be in the favorites, I'm not DE-FAVING, but they won't be featured.  Just thought I'd give you all a head's up as the tournament gets closer to concluding!

I have started a pool on my page ( rainrach ) to make our fine club into a SUPER GROUP!  Why?  I miss having thumbnails in the journal (especially for the OC Tourney) and having folders within folders for our contests. I also want to make a rad looking journal skin.  It would be nice to be a super group again.  So please, if you can donate some points, please head over to my page ( rainrach ) and donate to the Brotherhood!  Thankies!

Also check out some Extras for the competition below!  If you have fan art for the tournament that you want displayed, note me!  Even if you're out of the contest, we're still happy to display your fan art (NOTE: The "extras" section is specifically reserved for extras RELATING to the CONTEST.  So, anything that would focus solely your character or other characters within the confines of the contest and it's timeline.  All extras must directly related to the contest to be accepted.):

1/29/11: THE SAD PASSING OF BOYD KIRKLAND

(From the Evo-Obsessed-Club's journal): On the 27th of this month, Boyd Kirkland passed away while waiting for a new lung at UCLA Medical Center. Mr. Kirkland was the producer of X-men: Evolution. Without him, we would have never had this wonderful show, and many others, and he will be missed. Our condolences go out to his friends and family.

:new:  OH SNAP!  All my precious, wonderful Hoodlings entered this round!  Yes, all 5 of my amazing Hoodling contestants MADE ME PROUD and STUCK TO THEIR GUNS and submitted multi-page entries.  Who's a happy club owner?  OH I AM.  I.  AM.  The Hoodlings got all their entries in while the New RETARDS totally DID NOT.  HA!  WHO'S THE LOSER NOW?!  And might I add what AWESOME entries we have.  Finding out who your real friends are, facing down GIANT ROBOTS.  Fear, courage, power-usage, teamwork...LORDY LORDY what a ride!  You all deserve a PAT ON THE BACK for making it this far!  You earned your place in the Semi-Finals.  Good job!!

Soon the judges will gather in the dead of night (around 7pm) to drink the NECTAR OF THE G0DS (Mountain Dew), let our eyes roll back into our heads (...this is true), and utter (type) the names of the CHAMPIONS OF THIS ROUND...and then spit into the dirt...the tainted saliva forming the names of the unlucky two not to make it to the final round (...this is also true).  THE EXCITEMENT!  THE DREAD!  WHO WILL MAKE IT?! Stay tuned!  

(Also, because no one reads this far, did everyone see me awesome Evo OCT Contestants piece?  I'm a shameless self-promoter and it's the current only piece that features EVERY OC entered into the contest.  If you haven't seen it...go see...because I'm a shameless self-promoter like that >____>;;; )
