Need your help! Your vote! Get yourself a drawing!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 12, 2011, 10:59 AM
EDIT: If the site gives you an Internal Server Error, it just means IT CAN'T HANDLE OUR RAMPAGING BATTALION OF FABULOUSNESS. Just try again a bit later and it should be fine! CHAAAARGGGGEEEEE.

Okay folks.

This is no small task ahead of us. And by all rights I shouldn't even be asking anything on account of being all but DEAD around these parts for the last million years or so.. but I love a good, nearly hopeless challenge just as much as any other guy, so I figured, why not.


My fiancée, the ever effervescent :iconzombiesmile:, has been featured on Potluck Comics recently, and as such, been entered into a contest to win $300. This is no sum to scoff at, and we would.. well.. love to put it towards weddings of ludicrous proportions. (How much would it cost to pay the entire reception to do a dance number of www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdyC1B… , do you think? )

But yes, this is where you come in. We could really use your vote over there, and in the next 12 hours, because the contest closes around then.  Now here's the deal. The current top winners have had oh, around a month to get to really healthy numbers.. and Miki is trailing by about 113 some votes. So the plan is.. somehow.. get as many votes as everyone else did in a month, in twelve hours.


SIMPLE, RIGHT?  YEEEEEAHHHH.



But I don't want anyone voting on there for NOTHING, that wouldn't be fair, now would it! So here's what I propose.


If we manage to get the winning entry on Potluck, I will draw a ridiculously bloated, overly enormous poster containing one character of EVERY PERSON who votes and then subsequently leaves a comment here in my journal. I BET YOU THINK I'M KIDDING AND I'M TOTALLY NOT OKAY YOU GUYS. EVEN IF THE AFOREMENTIONED DRAWN CHARACTERS MAY BE KINDA SKETCHY AND SILLY LOOKING STILL.  BIG, MEATY MEAT POSTER.

Now I know what you're thinking, there's absolutely no way I'll know whether or not you actually voted. You'd be right. I'm basically opening this up to the honor system here. xD Which I may pay for, dearly. But hey, I mean, if we never even generate that many votes.. I won't have to do anything, anyway. So! Right.

DOWN TO BUSINESS. This here is the link to her comic:

potluckcomics.com/timing-is-ev…

HOW TO VOTE: Apparently 'votes' are tally'd up via "shares on facebook, RTs on Twitter and simply pagehits" according to Miki. So basically just hit them up with facebook shares, twitter stuff, rate the comic, leave a comment on the actual page, anything you can think of. xD I don't know jack shit about all these newfangled contrapmashuns you kids are using nowadays, but it doesn't seem like it'd be too difficult a process.

If you can, go vote! Then come back here! Let me know you voted! Link a character!

Well! That's it! I suppose! I don't know how many people still come around this side of the site, but if you do, we'd really, really appreciate your support. : ) Thanks in advance, unless of course we actually pull this off, in which  case DAMN YOU, DAMN YOU TO HELL MY WRISTS ARE ALREADY SCREAMING.

I voted and commented in the past and forgot about the drawing requests. You can take your pick between Zatura, Razell, Ping pong, Kaiya, Ohmie or easy as fuck to draw papiyellow.

I voted, but I forgot to add my characters. (I didnīt draw them back then when I voted and thought ya forgot about it until I read your past journal, sorry ^^" )

Anyone is fine... They are like, 15 cm tall.

I know that add them so late may be suspicious. It's understandeble. My proof that I voted is in the 12th (or someplace near by) part of the comments in this journal.

I shared/tweeted/voted, etc!

If your still accepting characters I'd love for you to draw Caspian, one of my ocs.

One of my friends drew him and I think it's the best drawing there is of him..
If you need colors, the outfit is dark blue/dark green, his eyes are red, and has fare skin.

ENDLING. You are so cool for doing this. No one's as insane as you! Haha, I hope that she wins! She really does deserve it!

Voted by tweeting, Redditing, and Facebooking. Best of luck to you, your fiancee, and your soon-to-be-crippled hands. I'm so sorry.
I wish I could give you one less hand-ache, but there's no way I could pass up the opportunity to recieve something from you. Unfortunately, I haven't drawn the character yet..I'll get it to you ASAP.

Sincerest apologies!

I voted as soon as I read your journal entry, which was a couple of hours after you submitted it, although I have not been able to come back here and let you know until now. I voted by rating (five stars, naturally) and commenting, for which I used my dA username as alias.

As for the character poster, you do not really have to draw anything for me. I am just happy I could help out. :)
