The 30 best Woocoins

In this news post, I want to present you the 30 best Woocoins we received (according to my subjective taste) as response to our much loved and hated strip #905. We received some really impressive and innovative artwork and we’re very grateful for that!

Here are the top 30 coins in no particular order:

by andre_collier
I like the modern design of this coin.

by Cargo19
I like the idea with the dragon lair.

by Dante
I like the cute drawing of Woo.

by James Walker
I like how some people even did some handicrafts.

by captainbozo01
The German text says: “Please have mercy, oh allmighty Cicada 3301 group!”

by anonymous tapir
I like the presidential drawing of Woo.

by Grayson
I like the detailed drawings.

by Hirumono
I like the drawing of Woo, works well for a coin.

by Jesse N.
I like the drawings of Woo and Sandra.

by Quadricat (website)
I like the pawprints on the edge.

by Frankie
I like the 3D effect of Woo’s arm.

by Ricardo Mosqueda (website)
This was probably the funniest submission.

by Nonmomentus
I like the idea of a wooden Woocoin.

by Kuraimizu
I like the interesting design of this coin.

by rctgamer3
This one just barely missed the top 10. I found the selected drawing of Woo a bit arbitrary for a coin.

by Grobbekee
I like the 3D effect.

by Hope
This very nice coin didn’t make it into the top 10 because it arrived too late after I had already informed the artists of the top 10 coins.

by William
I liked the changed text on the whiteboard.

by Zero
I like the drawing of Woo as a king.

by Sendor
I like the nice drawing of Woo.

Here are the top 10 coins in no particular order:

by Lami
That’s some really nice pixel art!

by Lime Cultivist
I like the drawing of Woo as a king and the 3D effect.

by Isaac Ackerman
I like the nice drawing of Woo.

by Jykia
I like the well-drawn hand and the overall layout.

by Prof_Polymer
I like the innovative design of the coin.

by Tessa (website)
I like the classical look of the coin.

by twarqulas
I like the overall design of the coin.

And here are my three favorite Woocoins in no particular order:

by Aladdinboy (website)
That’s a really well-done 3D overlay! It almost looks like a real coin. According to Google Translate the Latin text says “Never anger Larisa.”

by Jack B. Nimble
That’s a very nice 3D model! I particularly like the paw print in the background.

by sribbleinc (website)
That’s a very nice drawing that shines with the detailed building on tails and the lovely color composition!

Very important news for Patreon patrons!

Additional information about the contest:

  • You can submit several drawings or other types of art, but you can win at most two prizes.
  • Please do not publish your artwork on other websites before the end of the contest. After that, you can post it anywhere you want.

  • Digital images should be sent in their original size in a lossless format, for example as a PNG file with full color depth. If you draw the image on paper, you should send me a large, clean scan of it in a lossless format, for example as a PNG file with full color depth. However, you can’t send me files larger than 25 MB by e-mail.

My visit of the Comic Con Stuttgart 2017

After my trip last year, I also visited the Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart last Saturday. Once again, I had a lot of fun. I met a couple of other German comic artists, a few Sandra and Woo fans, bought some cool artwork, and saw a lot of cosplayers with great costumes. In this post, you can have a look at all the photos I took and read my comments about them. You can click on each photo to see a larger version of it.

Visiting the Comic Con Stuttgart on Saturday

Here’s some info about my visit of the Comic Con Stuttgart next Saturday for our German readers:

Ich werde diesen Samstag, 1. Juli 2017, der Comic Con in Stuttgart einen Besuch abstatten. Allerdings nur als Besucher, nicht als Aussteller. Sollte es Leute geben, die Lust haben, mich zu treffen, mögen diese hier bitte einen kurzen Kommentar hinterlassen. In dem Fall könnte man einen Treffpunkt ausmachen. Ich werde zum Beispiel meine Kollegin Sarah Burrini beim Stand des Comic-Verlags “Edition Kwimbi” besuchen.
