Francis Manapul did a similar concept, but with Doc G in it too lol

Giarusso and Garbowska tie for first place in this challenge for me. And I hate to say it but Buccellato's was my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, it was great but looked like it had the least amount of detail. Just saying.

Just wondering, after you have them do these challenges, are you allowed to take photoes of the result? And how much are those sketchbooks (I get the impression they are sold off when the con is ending or are filled)?.

Maybe for the next time CV should have a 'send in suggestions' option :)

Surprised no one else thought of this:

Peter Nguyen is such a great artist!!!!

Wow. I love this year's art challenge the best. Wonder Woman and a cake. Love it. Everyone's art look amazing. I thought the one with Wonder Woman as a baby was really cute. Also, really like the first one and francis manapul's ww.

Damn, now I can't wait for WW to appear in Superman, Flash, GL and Aquaman books.

Nauck's drawing is my favorite. Nothing wrong with a little comic mischief. In yer face, baby! Happy 71st birthday, you senile old hag! Oh, and Agnes is just as cute as her own drawings.

always my favorite content from cons.

Posted by Mr. Kamikaze

Really like Nguyen, Gomez, and Manapul.

I've been wondering if these artists draw these challenges for free.

No cake can contain or lie to Wonder Woman!

I knew someone was going to do the jumping out of the cake bit, but I was surprised to see two people do that.

That was my first time seeing Agnes Garbowska's art. She' has a really adorable style.

LOL at Manapul using you in his picture. RESURRECT DR. GUERRERO!!!!

Posted by crazyflashfan11

I really liked: Manapul's, Garbowska's, Giarrusso's, and.... wel, hell THERE ALL GOOD.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

I enjoyed the variations on this one!

Posted by Webjaker

Firstly - AMAZING! Probably the best video so far.

It was so cool to not only see how each artist has such a different style at the end, but each one of them draws from start to finish in such different ways.

I love that Brian Buccelatto only had FLASH colors with him ROFL - I would have asked him to color Manapul's drawing

- Only request, tripod next time :)

Gomez and Manapul did exactly what I was thinking when I first heard G-man say the challenge.

: (response to closing statement in the video)

Even he thought that was Un-BEAR-able
Posted by ArtisticNeedham

Do they do these sketches for free? Really great stuff this year. Kicking myself for all the artists I didn't get sketches from, wish I saw this before the con... which I know was impossible.

Posted by G-Man

@ArtisticNeedham: Most artists do commissions. That's why they're in Artist Alley. They have to pay for their tables.

@G-Man: How much do they roughly cost?

Posted by NyxEquitis

Wow. That was really cool.

Posted by vietthreat

Manapul keeps Doc G Alive. Great artwork from everyone but I especially liked Agnes Garbowskas art. Put a big smile on my face.

Posted by Surkit

LMAO! After the first six minutes I thought to myself, 'How did NOBODY think to have her pop out of a cake' lol

Posted by G-Man

@Mucklefluga: It varies. Some artist will do free headshots, if they have the time. Then it depends on the type of commission, just pencils, inks, etc. And of course how in demand they are. Some artist do commissions through their websites. I always list their tumblr's and blogs when I do the weekly Awesome Art Picks. I'll also include scans of these there on Saturday.

I love Agnes' pictures. I would pay all of the money to get a piece from her. Too bad I can't go to a convention.

Posted by GValo

G-Man Yay it's up! I've been waiting for this since you said on twitter that you would thinking about it and already had the character in mind

Man I was HOPING someone would do the Lasso of Truth with the cake as a nod to Portal's "The Cake is a Lie" but the one who used it did it with very little detail. If I wasn't a comic book fan I wouldn't have known it was suppose to be WW.

Posted by Whiskeyjack

I was almost concerned there for a while that none of the artists would opt for an interpretation of WW jumping out of a cake.

Agnes Garbowska's interpretation wins for me. I first found Agnes' work through CV's Awesome Art Picks a few months back and follow her tumblr now. Looking forward to picking up a piece of her artwork at the Toronto Fan Expo next month.

surprised no one miss heard and thought it was Wonder Woman and a Cape

Posted by Queso6p4

That was quite enjoyable to watch.

Posted by RoTheKid

Loved Todd's, Agnes', Francis', and Joel's! :D

Posted by Kayrack

HAHA, very well done

Posted by Pokeysteve

These were all great. Was anyone else bothered by Agnes' ONE unpainted finger nail lol

Gomez was my favorite. They are all so talented. I always look forward for the challenge drawings.

Posted by xer789

as Eddie implied I'm blown away that a person able to profit $7977 in four weeks on the internet. did you look at this site NuttyRichdotcom

Posted by DonFelipe

Awesome challenge! My first ideas were "in the face" and "jumping out of the cake". I like all 3 results based on this idea. Nguyen, Nauck, Gomez and Manapul are my favorites. The idea using the lasso is great, too, but I don't like the result. It's actually cool but the lasso looks weird - the lasso itself as well as how it goes around the cake.

: How about adding song credits? I'd really enjoyed the music in this challenge, too. Thanks in advance! Oh, and I'd really like to see Fiona Staples being challenged...

I DEMAND THE NEXT CHALLENGE TO BE AQUAMAN AND A POGO STICK! THIS I COMMAND!
