It's also a great way to break out of a slump if you happen to be in one.

step 1)

Check the Exercise yard and see if there are any open challenges or post one of your own. Challenges are basically "Hey, I have a character..who wants to fight?"

Step 2) Once a challenge is accepted, the challenger must then draw the first page of sequential art depicting the attack.

Step 3) The challenger then draws a page of sequentials depicting the counter attack. If you are unclear on how this works..check other Fight Club threads examples.

--this goes on till someone concedes or your match runs out of gas (i.e. no more posting activity)

Critiques will be given by other board members on whether or not the action was clear and understandable, the reader was easily able to identify which frame came angles...ect, ect.

Or..if you are unsure how to critique you can just say what you liked or didn't like about it.

Keep it fun, Same rules apply here as far as etiquette personal attacks on religion, race, sex..ect. use "@#*&" to represent swearing...common sense stuff.

Let's get ready to rumble...

How to get Challenged...

You can increase your chances of getting your challenge accepted by increasing the dynamic of your pic.

Here's an example of what NOT to do:

sure it looks good...but he's just standing there.
It doesn't give the impression that this fight is worth taking on the challenge for.

A few changes later and and you're bringing something to the table.

Someone's more likely to think "Hey, this could be fun" and accept your challenge.

Good Luck!!
