The WhytManga Tournament is to help pull the art community together and to help other artists get some recognition for their work, I feel bad when good art doesnt get viewed and random ones do, its time for all yaw to shine!(cheezy i know). Its also to help all participants improve their art by competing with other in a friendly and fun manner! Entries will be given shout outs during the contest just to show others their competition.
The Whyt Manga Tournament is sponsored by SmithMicro (Creators of Manga Studio)[link]
HOW IT WORKS
There are 5 rounds with 5 different art challenges.
I will pick my TOP 16 Entries out of all entries
Knock out stageout of the TOP 16, each artist will face one another, artist A vs artist B (as pairs), they will be assigned a new challenge and I will pick the one i think is better from each pair. to create a TOP 8.
Third Round- Quarter finals
same with the second round but with a new challenge to create the TOP 4
Fourth Round- Semi finals
same with the third round but with a new challenge to create the TOP 2
Fifth Round- Finals
the TOP 2 artists will face off for victory and the title of the winner of the Tournament.
