Hi all, and welcome to the eighty-second Comic Vine Amalgam Contest!

Alright, so this is my first contest thread you guys, and a big thanks to everyone who voted last time. Everyone's entries for the last one were great, really nice work all round, so I'm hoping we'll have some interesting entries for this one. I had a look through the previous contests and this doesn't seem to have been done before, so I hope you like! ^___^

The theme for this contest is an amalgam of The Crow, mixed with ANY OTHER CHARACTER. Literally anyone with a page on this site is allowed.

Deadline for this one is December 1st.

The Crow (Eric Draven)
The Crow (Iris Shaw)

@bumpyboo: Congrats on the win! Woot Woot!

Also, this is a WONDERFUL idea and am surprised no one chose this character for an Amalgam. So major props for the choice. Should be a blast!

@decept_o: Yay! Thanks, bud ^_^

Also, is it considered bad form to enter your own contests? Don't mind sitting this one out but, what's the consensus on that?

#6 Posted by Decept-O (7294 posts) - - Show Bio

@bumpyboo: No, you can enter your the contest you have created! No rules against it. Why not enter?

@bumpyboo: Oh, you don't have to do that. I'll see if I can't come up with something in between bus rides.

@armiv2: Well it's no bother, so if you change your mind, let me know and I'll add a little extra :) People have done it for me, it's only fair. Plus it would be AWESOME to see a Crow pic from you ^___^

Imagine Rick Grimes comes back from the dead not as a zombie but as the crow!

Here is my entry

#18 Edited by ARMIV2 (8856 posts) - - Show Bio

Whether he had made a mistake that night or if the Joker just got lucky isn't known for certain, but what was known at the time was that Batman had fallen and Gotham was now subject to the Joker's grand scheme. But for one such as Batman, the battle for justice isn't lost so easily. Resurrected as The Crow, Batman now has the chance to stop the Joker once and for all. But can he bring himself to deliver such severe justice, or is Gotham forfeit?

Colored version

@armiv2: The black and white version is great but with the added color and blank white eyes, it really jumps out. Nice.

@cjhanz: Sweet concept, great art. Nicely done. Very different style from your Public Domain Re-Design entry.

#20 Posted by ARMIV2 (8856 posts) - - Show Bio

@decept_o: Thank you. It has been too long since I've colored anything for the sheer want of it.

#25 Posted by ARMIV2 (8856 posts) - - Show Bio

@bumpyboo: Thanks, I'm super glad I could too. The multiply option in Photoshop really helped me out a ton with that.

#26 Posted by BumpyBoo (10744 posts) - - Show Bio

@armiv2: Yeah it definitely pays off, I love the colours you've used in it :) Really enhances the piece.

#27 Edited by cjhanz (171 posts) - - Show Bio

@bumpyboo hahah thanks yeah i went through a whole list of characters that might look good being crossed with the crow but the two main characters i was interested in drawing was Rick grimes and Rorschach from the watchmen.

When the villains of Gotham had grown tired of his madness they betrayed him and left his bullet riddled body for dead in the street. Brought back from the grave, the power of the Crow has been warped by madness, corrupted into something much, much more terrible than death. The task of the Crow is to make wrong things right, but what if the soul chooses to make those who are wrong, much worse... The Joker is reborn as the Crow and he's back to prove that it can rain all the time....

(Whatever you do though, don't call him The Crowker... he hates that ;P)

@feebadger: Woah!! So glad to see you in this one, bud. Really didn't expect it at all, what a nice surprise. This is brilliant! The idea of a Joker/Crow amalgam is both wonderful and terrifying.

Favourite. Shameless favourite right there ^^^^^^

@decept_o: I had my eye out for your entry! :) This is a very interesting mix, I really love your use of red, has a definite blood mist feel to it. Excellent stuff mate! ^__^

@bumpyboo: Thank you for being so kind to comment on my art. Seems like I get a bunch of crickets chirping whenever I post anything these days.

Glad you like my take. Although I MAY try a different version, but glad you like this one.

@decept_o: Funny enough, someone else in this thread was saying the same thing to me this morning :/ Guess that is how I ended up with so many posts on this forum, really irks me to see someone put work into a piece and get no reaction. Seems mean.

I do like this one, a lot ^___^

@bumpyboo: Oh i am just griping. Can't expect everyone to like my art. Thanks though.
