ISOM #2 Campaign Fan Art Contest

By Andrew Rodriguez

Hello, Rippaverse®!

Thank you so much for your continued enthusiasm and support for the Isom #2 pre-order campaign! We have more exciting things coming to the campaign in the coming weeks, including the custom Rippaverse short boxes! But today, back by popular demand, is the return of one of the favorites from the first campaign – the Fan Art Contest!

The Isom #1 Fan Art Contest produced a massive crop of fantastic pieces of art from all over our fanbase, and three lucky winners got their hands on outstanding prizes! We’re looking forward to seeing both some returning fan artists back for another shot at glory, as well as fresh faces looking to get their penciled productions up on the podium!

The rules will be nearly identical to last time:

  • Submissions must be Original Work – no exceptions. Any works deemed to be copies or traces of other existing artists will be disqualified along with the submitting artist.
  • The Contest is open to all individuals 13 years or older in the United States. Anyone younger or judged as a minor in their jurisdiction must have the permission of a parent or legal guardian to register for, submit an entry, or participate in the contest.
  • Submissions must have at least one Rippaverse This is a Rippaverse Fan Art Contest, and as such, all works should contain characters showcased in the Isom #1 and #2 comics.
  • Multiple entries are permitted. However, only one will be considered for the contest.
  • No NSFW content whatsoever. This includes the depiction of explicit or suggestive adult sexual content, excessive violence, gore, or adult language. Failure to follow this rule will result in immediate disqualification from the Fan Art Contest.
  • No OCs. This is a contest strictly for the characters that have been introduced or showcased for Isom #1. Please, do not insert original characters from your own works or that you’ve imagined as fan fiction for this universe – we want to see how you can present the characters we’ve created. Failure to follow this rule will result in your work being disqualified from the Fan Art Contest.
  • No copyrighted characters from different, non-Rippaverse IPs (no crossovers, i.e., Isom and Wolverine/Batman/Spider-Man/etc.). Failure to follow this rule will result in your work being disqualified from the Fan Art Contest.
  • Not all submissions will be considered for the contest. Our judges will carefully review each piece, and only those that will be considered for the competition will be displayed on the contest’s featured submissions gallery page.

Prizes this time are out of this world!

  • 1st Place: $1,000 reward and choice of $1,000 pinup/cover commission or long-term interior, sequential work worth up to $23,000
  • 2nd Place: 500-dollar reward
  • 3rd Place: 300-dollar reward
  • 4th Place: 200-dollar reward

Best of luck to all of our competitors, and we can’t wait to see what you all cook up! Pencils up, artists!
