Would tupperware remix party be cheating? Since they already look like rpg characters.


fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/5/2014 15:22

This is the best idea for a challenge in a long while.

Suusi (Level 3 Nasturtium) @ 6/5/2014 10:53

I want to make about The Beatles, not only commented because I had forgotten my password on the site, (lol) ^^

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/5/2014 02:45

if people are so hard to draw make slipknot, residents, mr.bungle, ghost b.c, clinic, funkadelic, parliament, laibach, dimmu borgir, sunn 0))) or some band wearing masks and/or customes. Your welcome :)

Trashcan (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/3/2014 20:18

Well, I'm gonna do it, it's just hard.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/3/2014 18:30

Ratatat, anyone? 

I'm surprised no one has said the Beatles.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/3/2014 17:08

Trashcan, that's why its a challenge. *slaps*

Trashcan (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/3/2014 12:43

I wanna do the ramones but people are really hard to do :^P

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/3/2014 12:36

Just have it be like Ray Charles and then a swarm of people who have played in bands around him over the years as cannon fodder or something.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/3/2014 05:23

Drazile, that's why its a challenge. *slaps*

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 6/3/2014 01:56

Ugh, I withdraw. Drawing people is too hard.

Peyton (Level 7 Assassin) @ 6/2/2014 20:49

Mkay, I'm guessing you mean it has to be a full band.

Shame I can't do a Tom Waits or Ray Charles thing.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 18:42

band + heroes + party

Peyton (Level 7 Assassin) @ 6/2/2014 18:38

Does it have to be a full group, or can it be a single artist?

CraftyPixeI (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/2/2014 17:27

- This is cool , but idk if it'll be entered into the contest. -

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 15:49

Oh! that was worse than a rickroll 

Skoby (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/2/2014 14:30

Aquabats would be awesome!!

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 6/2/2014 14:18

dibs on Crossbows N Roses.

No, Spice Damsels! Or "Take That, you ugly orc!". I wish I had more time this week...

KamiWasa (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/2/2014 14:10

Doing the Aquabats would be hilarious haha. All the bands I listen to are not well known at all ;_;

TrojanMonkey (Level 1 Private) @ 6/2/2014 12:45

It just occurred to me that taking a boy-band, or just about any other group that one might ferociously hate and create a scene upon that -- could be entertaining.
A scene where One Direction is being set ablaze for heresy, for an instance. Hmmhm. I like this direction.
Alright, enough horrible puns from me.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 12:28

Dibs on ...

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 12:14

 @All, calling dibs is cool and fun
but no one should change their ideas because someone called it.
This is not in the challenge rules.

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/2/2014 09:58

OH GOD! Great...Well, I know too many underground band, but I'll search for some famous one! 

JaredOnYT (Level 2 Corporal) @ 6/2/2014 09:32

dibs on Queen!


uh...Dibs on Daft Pu-GOSH DANG IT

Limes (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/2/2014 09:17

Skoby (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/2/2014 07:53

Since my first 2 ideas are gone, dibs on tenacious D 

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 07:40

Well...that takes care of that 2nd idea. I'm stuck with ABBA now :/

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/2/2014 07:12

Dibs on Kiss

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/2/2014 04:59

What a great challenge idea. My head is filled with 2 ideas already

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 6/2/2014 03:17

Great challenge idea. So many interesting options. If I had time, I would do Jackson Five.

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/2/2014 01:49

Dibs on the doors

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 6/2/2014 01:41
