Here we go again..
Challenge #3
"The Perfect Crime" - whatever that means to you.

Writers- Write a short skit, idea or premise or 20 page script.. up to you. The earlier you submit, the chances of someone doing artwork based off it are better!

Story Artists- Draw out boards illustrating the perfect Crime

Character Designers- Design the "perfect" criminals

Prop Designers- Design what it is the criminals would be stealing, or their equipment.. get away vehicle etc..

BG artist- Show us where the "perfect" crime would take place

Come up with something cool! Keep in mind.. It won't be a waste of time, if it's something you can stick in your portfolio!

Have Fun!!

---------------------------------
You can post your entry anytime from now until Noon (pacific time) on SUNDAY (extended it a day for weekend warrior artists) the 24th. Voting will begin immediately afterwords. Winner Revealed Monday afternoon along with the next challenge.

What, you're leaving out us animators, Gary? Well that's fine! I didn't want to animate the perfect crime anyway!
And I was gonna do it in 3d too!

P.S.: I'm expecting a lot of Eisner drawings in this challenge...

I like this idea of the "Perfect Crime".. Could be anything.. Pies cooling in a window.. Getting more change than expected at a fast food restaurant... A stolen base in Baseball.. (thanks again Dave Roberts)

Can't wait to get started~

Yes, you are not only showing off your drawing skills.. but your creativity as well.

Keep in mind.. people in charge of hiring artists read these threads! This is a great opportunity to get some exposure among the animation community.
[cheers]

But don't let that intimidate you! Just something to keep in mind.

Tron.. I didn't mean to leave out Animators! My bad.

Animators are more than welcome!

Animating a character stealing something can be short and sweet, or activating a crazy security system.. could be 10 seconds of animation. We're all animation junkies.. we don't need ink and paint.. we'll take animation in any form!!!

And remember! The earlier you submit something, the more chances of someone encorporating it into their submission!

There could be animators out there with no idea.. maybe see some boards or a script or some ch. designs and get inspired.

[cheers]
Keep it fun!!

Am I missing something? What's with the Monkeys and Cheese? I don't get the joke.
Is it like a Donkey Punch or something?
Why not Squirrels and Hummus?
Penguins and Mustard?
Cows and Bread?
Is this comedy? ... If it is.. i'm working too hard.

The lack of submissions for this challenge is making me seriously question the talents and creativity of this board.
[funny] Oooh! You've all just been served!

My brain's spent thinking of ways to entertain using Monkeys and Cheese.

Or at least gross people out.

Uh, I might try something later into the computer for laffs.

HARNY, a rabbit with CHUNKS out of his LEFT EAR and
MUTZO a strange dog coyote creature are talking as a stump of a cactus that has been turned into
a bar. Harny is spit cleaning some hollowed out cans.

Harny
So, yer gunna steal his sammich
while he ain't lookin'.

Mutzo
Devious, isn't it?

Harny
Well,... it seems purty pathetic tah me

Mutzo begins GESTURING more
BROADLY with each GRAND PRONOUNCEMENT

Mutzo
(manic)
Yes, to the vacant eye of one who
doesn't understand STRATEGY this
might seem petty,
BUT to the eye that sees
the divine streams of chance and
circumstance intemingling in a
torrent of possibility
it is sheer BRILLIANCE.
A method to undermine his spirit
and destroy his soul.
Hee Heeee...

Harny COCKS one eye brow and LEANS over to get a closer LOOK at Mutzo

Harny
Wow, you rally worked this
all out, didn'cha?

Mutzo turns slightly away to hide his DEVILISH GLEE.

Mutzo
(to himself)
It's the perfect crime....

Harny
So what if the....hey Nutzo! Nutzo?....

Mutzo turns slightly more away to hide his REVERIE.

Mutzo
(to himself)
I'm so Happy....

Harny LEANS back and LOOKS sideways at the plotting pooch.

Harny
The only crime was what yer
mother did with that coyote.

There's a clank, a hiss -- and the vault slides open.

The light sweeps the interior of the vault.

RATZO:

Picking on GregB is bad form! I'd disqualify that if this were a real contest.

Bad taste Ravenshoe! Shame on you!
