    Bro I might be taking your posts the wrong way but this whole thread is really to get people more excited about donating. Seeing the artwork and dedication from the artists and what not hopefully shows how passionate people are about this...Im pretty sure were all here because we want skullgirls at EVO. But being pumped about donating and/or maybe helping those people on the borderline of donating finally take the plunge makes this worth it.

    Like I said I might be reading your posts a bit too serious and if I am i apologize for it!!
    But the question is, if whatever you asked for doesn't get done, what do you do with the money?

    IMO, you should still donate that money whether or not the stuff gets done.
    For me, SF4 got fighting games backward - combos are supposed to be easy and reversals are supposed to be hard.

    Hope this isn't too late. Wanted to spend more time on it but the donation shit is ending pretty soon.

    Enjoy.

    They probably will, but I still think this is a really fun way to go about getting some donations. I've enjoyed the work that's come out of this thread so far. I mean really... that comic with Cerebella trying to drink Tea was just awesome.

    This thread has raised $405 so far, and probably more pending a few reciepts being posted. If we can get to the point where we're responsible for $1k, I'd consider that just flat-out amazing.

    Phenomenal, I love it. Give the artist my thanks!

    Also when you send it would you mind if I got also got a version with just the line art and no colors/ logo? Assuming they're all on a separate layers of course.



    That's $205 dollars so far for this next donation.

    But the bounty hunters better step up their game with the ST menace on the rise, haha.

    Here's an update on the prizes we'll be giving out:

    As I mentioned before, one of the artists who will be working on one of the the first place sticks wanted to do that $150 commission.

    http://ravvlet.deviantart.com/

    She'll also be working on the poster artwork for the 2nd-place winners! For the commission, she was assisted by

    http://adomiel.deviantart.com/

    , who will be doing the artwork for the other 1st-place stick! Furthermore, these prize commissions are being done gratis!

    Please check out their dA pages and share your appreciation, everyone. :)

    For the digital art going to the 3rd place winners, our own Misty-Skye in this thread will be doing them! As soon as I find out if she has a site she wants me to plug, I'll be adding all of this information to the OP as well.


    I just ordered the second PS360+ PCB and cables this morning. There are tons of requests out there and SG is trailing behind, so get to work and finish strong, everyone!

    I'll ask one more time: Is there any interest in extending the bounty completion deadline to Friday @midnight CST?

    Basically you don't post bounties after Thursday(since you should have donated by then!) but give people who are finishing the work on your bounty an extra day to do your requests.

    The deal I did with Nel was that I'm going to complete the art for his stick after the drive is over, since high res art takes time... Even then I'm probably not going to finish it by friday, since it'll take at least a week
    I don't mind if this disqualifies me as a bounty hunter, since I'd rather not rush on this art

    Yeah... I think my hands are tied on that one unless everyone is down with letting the lengthy requests get the time they need to wrap up.

    I don't personally mind if that happens, but I will stipulate that as with your request and the dog drawing request, the donated money has to be in by the time the donation drive ends tonight.

    Alright, time to give the non-artistically inclined a chance in this one. Let's do some TRIVIA Bounties!

    $10 a question. Credit goes to the first person to message me with the correct answer. I'll update with the correct answers and who won each. Let's do these in batches of 5. Starting with some WC questions:
    1. This glowstick enthusiast won ST and CvS2 in the same year. Name the player and who he beat to win CvS2 in what some consider the greatest evo match of all time. [never claimed. answer: John Choi who defeated BAS the cvs2 god.]]
    2. Rumored to be a former hairdresser, this individual was a staple of the WC scene, hates white boys, and was famous for throwing people in the fountain. [answer: Jaha winner: jmcrofts]
    3. Amir "Bobby Blake" XL is an amazing 3rd strike Chun player. But, one can't help but wonder what could have been if his CvS2 career wasn't ended by this player in a dramatic blowup. Name the player and the character used in this famous ocv. [never claimed. answer: Daigo Umehara sent him home to be a family man with some amazing guile play.]
    4. This living legend won ST @ Evo two years in a row in counter picking showdowns. Name the player and his favorite ultra in SSF4AE. [never claimed. answer: the one, the only Jason "AfroCole" Cole. 09ers know him for his dirty U2 dhalsim which recently brought down daigo.]
    5. Some call him 6 blowjobs, others know him as the women's tennis enthusiast with no eyebrows. This individual was introduced to the world at large when he locked another man in a bathroom. Name the locker and the lockee and provide a theory as to what happened to each.
    [winner: jmcrofts: answer: "yo man #5 is easy mode. John D Rockefeller locked Dogface in the bathroom. As for their current whereabouts, Rockefeller got a job as Buck Angel's pre-shoot fluffer, and Dogface died in a XMvSF-related mishap. They say Dogface beat God FT10, and was thus admitted to heaven."]

    Awesome!

    OK, since SRK is likely only going to get worse through the night, I'm going to go ahead and extend the deadline for completed Bounties to Friday. 12PM CST, like I mentioned earlier.

    You're free to donate in advance for a bounty that's claimed, yet hasn't finished for tonight. No new bounties will count towards the prizes after the donation drive ends tonight; just ones in progress that have already been donated for.

    Well, it looks like SRK is going to be borked for the rest of the night so more trivia isn't going to work well. Guess you guys are just going to have to keep drawing canines.
    Final bounty:
    For $250. Same two dogs are the focus. I'd like the Cattle dog to be guile, but I understand the hair can be rough so I will also accept Sagat (PS the Sagat cattle dog I got was ridiculously cute and works with his natural eye patch.) The border collie should be Chun. The scene is that they have just defeated Bison and Akuma (or two other boss characters, I'm not really picky on that) who are a cows, sheep, or . Livestock Bison and Akuma are fleeing on bicycles/golf cart or both. Again, cuteness valued above all else. Misty-skye really nailed that balance. I'm looking for color and detail, I've already got a stick bottom or a spot on the wall picked out depending on how good it comes out.

    I understand that takes time, so a promise to perform is good enough for me to throw the money in.

    Pictures for reference:

    Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, be the guy or girl who closed the gap on smash and brought the thread total over 1k. Oh, and there are prizes too.

    Since you mentioned it in the chat (I can't believe I actually caught that):
    I can claim that - I still got Nel's stick art on my hands, but I can work on yours in the off-time / during college... But animals aren't my forte. So it's up to you if you think it's enough :X
    (I have a friend at college which does the cutest dogs though, so she can't teach me maybe?)
