    To celebrate OptimisticPenguin.com's 1st Birthday I am running a competition! YEAH!!!! Don't you just love competitions, I know I do.

    So what type of competition is it you may ask???

    Well it's a Figure Comic of course!!!!!

    I want you to make the most funniest, most silly, most wonderful comic you can think of, anything goes, go all out, use as many figures, props, and photo editing as you like.

    However there is one very key ingredient which all entries must have in order to be considered for prizes. Some where within the comics storyline there has to be... (drum roll please) *drum roll* a PENGUIN!!!!!

    Yep your comic has to include one of the most wonderful animals in the world the penguin!

    Okay on to the rules so you have some clear guidelines to follow (just in case all of the above did not make sense).


    All entries must be figurine comics, meaning that the comics storyline is played out by using articulated figures. Photo's should be combined to two per panel with a maximum of six panels in each comic.

    Any Genre is fine, however comics with material which requires 18+ rating will not be accepted, so please refrain from using sexually explicit content in your entries, however innuendo is permitted.

    Photo editing is allowed and encouraged, I use it a lot in my comics to add speech and action effects.

    A penguin must be present in the comic as a part of the storyline, this can either be in a physical representation or in the dialog. Remember it is OptimisticPenguin.com so we want some fun penguin antics.

    All entries must be in by July 30th 2010.

    And the last most important rule is to have fun!

    But why should I even bother entering this competition you may ask???

    Because there are awesome prizes to be won of course!!!!

    First Place Prize:

    The wonderful Nendoroid Culture Festival Play set A & B!!!!

    Second Place Prize:

    The second place winner will get a lovely Figma Ex:Ride Vintage Bike Pearl White Colour.

    Third Place Prize:

    well the third prize is yet to be decided, but it will be awesome thats for sure!

    So what do I need to do to get an awesome prize you ask???

    Well the comics will be marked as follows:

    Storyline: How original and interesting the storyline is.
    Humor: How much your story made me laugh.
    Aesthetics: Use of props, setting, and editing.
    Use of Penguin: How well a penguin was incorporated into your story.

    All will be given a mark out of ten which I can then use to calculate an overall mark to make sure there is no accidental bias.

    Is that all???


    Just make your awesome comic send it too me before the July 30th and wait to hear who the lucky winners are.

    Please send your images as an attachment via email to: sara.fearon@optimisticpenguin.com

    Good Luck!!!

    Comic Competition Winners!!!!

    First of all before announcing the winners I would just like to say a few words. Firstly thank you to all who participated I was overwhelmed by the number of entries, far more than I had expected, and I was also amazed by the caliber of the comics, they were always fun and hilarious in their own way and it was very very hard for me to pick the winners out of so many great comics, and even though I had a scoring system for marks I still found it hard, if only I could give you all prizes!!!!

    However there has to be winners, please do not be discouraged if you didn't get a prize this time around, due to the quality and quantity of the comics I am definitely considering making Figurine Comic competitions a more regular thing here at OptimisticPenguin.com and at the Figurine Comics club. Now with out further a due I present the winners!!!!

    1st Place

    First place is snatched up by Chubbybot!!!! with his comic Sanae's Penguin.

    His comic was not only a fun original story, but with some devious white lies by Yoko Kero decides to help Sanae make a penguin to win a Gunpla scratch build contest! I was very impressed with the self-made Kero Penguin Chubbybot made especially for the contest. Hat's off to you Chubbs.

    So Chubbybot now gets the wonderful Nendo Music Room set, which will be a lovely place for Sanae and Yoko to hang out in. Congratulations. Your item is ready and waiting to be lovingly shipped out to you.

    2nd Place

    Second place is grabbed by TheNewAmAster and his comic Konata's New Best Friend.

    This story was original, fun, and amusing. Konata searches for a new friend, decides cats are not for her and neither are Rancors!!! and so she decides on PenPen and a beautiful friendship is born. A girl and her penguin playing games kicking Empire butt and becoming outlaws. This comic has it all, I also really like the set changes.

    So well done TheNewAmAster a nice Figma Ex:Ride Vintage Bike, which I am sure will help Konata and PenPen make some quick getaways when they are on the run from the Empire. Your item is wrapped and waiting for you.

    3rd Place

    And finally AnimatorAR steals third place with his comic Penguin Plus Rocket.

    I liked this comic very much and was tough contender, the sets are great the penguins look fantastic, and how can people not love another crazy Haruhi escapade. Penguins flying also brings a smile to anyones face. So great job fun story, lovely comedic timing, and very cool sets.

    So AnimatorAR will be receiving the lovely cute Toeto phone charm. Toeto is wrapped and waiting to be sent to her new master.

    And so there we are the competition and celebrations come to a close. I'd just like to once again thank all the entrants for making and sharing with me their wonderful comics and penguin antics. Lets all continue to spread the joy and happiness of Figurine Comics.

    Thanks also to all my fellow readers, onto a new year of blogging I go with my Penguin in hand! Much love and appreciation,

    Sara ^.^
