Hey other Stan.
I’m, uh, I’m Stan too, you can probably tell that already.
I don’t mind that you’re, you know, out there, being another Stan - I haven’t exactly been on here much anyway. Been too busy with my friends and stuff. You know how South Park is.
So yeah, it’s cool that you’re here. You’re one of the better other Stans I’ve seen.
But, um, can I ask you a favor?
Can you get the fuck out of my tag?
OOC: Don’t unfollow me yet, we’re almost there!
Alright, if you auditioned for Ask Stan, I’m going to ask you to do something for me. If you don’t answer this post I’ll just suck up my social awkwardness and sent you an ask (that hopefully goes through). I need to know a few things about you and how you draw.
- How long would it take you to draw a finished, uncolored picture of Stan?
- How long would it take you to color a picture of Stan?
- On average, can you predict how long it would take you to draw comic-like answers depending on how many panels there were? And how long that might take to color?
- Can you draw several characters at once if need be?
Just go ahead and send me an ask with your answers (I know there are no line breaks but I’d like this to not be published for the sake of competitiveness and all that). I like to answer questions fairly quickly, and that will only really change if I ever get enough asks to justify using the queue. So I want to know how quickly you can get this stuff out. It’ll help me pick a winner!
(That and the tons of votes from yesterday but you know)
Okay. I’m picking a winner soon - hopefully today but I don’t know - so once again, here’s everything we have so far. if you have a preference, message me about it! I’ll take everyone’s opinions into account.
This is an extremely hard decision for me because I have a few favorites and I honestly hate having to choose between them. Like I said before though, we might implement a child/teen asking system and then I’ll use two artists!
So, go ahead and tell me who’s your favorite, and if you like tell me your two favorites. Thanks for putting up with me, guys! We’re almost back to your regularly scheduled Stan!
OOC: No one’s on right now but I forgot to post this earlier.
We have one more audition! This one is a lovely little piece drawn by marmarml.
I’m honestly surprised at how quality all of the auditions have been. Like… wow. You guys are great.
Hey guys! Blog runner again. No one else has submitted any auditions so I’m just gonna put up what we have so far. If you would like to be the artist for Ask Stan and want to audition, just check out the #askstanley tag to see what needs to be done.
So thus far, we have:
And that’s it so far! If you have any preferences or comments to make, feel free to reblog or just send me an ask either via my main account or here. I’ll pick the winner/winners on Friday so get those auditions in!
Alright, so far, here are the people that have auditioned:
Thank you all very much! I think I might make the deadline Friday, just so I really have time to think things over and give others a chance to enter. As I’ve said before, this blog might start letting people ask questions to child Stan and teenage Stan. If I decide to start doing that, I’ll pick two artists, one for teen Stan and one for child Stan. But that’d undecided as of yet so we’ll see.
If you want to know what’s going on or haven’t read the guidelines yet, just look under the tag #askstanley and it’ll all be there.
Once again, thank you everyone who’s expressed interest!
OOC: The auditions are absolutely fantastic so far.
When I get the chance I’ll put them all in one post. Now, it’s definitely not closed yet; I have no set time for when I do want to close it. Anyone can enter and I’ll consider everyone. Just post your art under the #askstanley tag (and make sure to read the guidelines under that tag as well).
I’m considering selecting two artists; one to draw for 10-year-old Stan, and the other to draw for teenage Stan. The idea of doing both ages is very appealing, and I also like the idea of shifting art styles to indicate who’s answering. I’m not sure what to do yet for Stan himself though; whether I make a new blog or ask askers to specify if they’re asking teen Stan (which means otherwise child Stan will answer). But I’ll figure that out later.
Either way, get that art in! Ask Stan is in dire need of a little artistic direction.
Hello everyone! Blog runner here. As all 138 of you have no doubt noticed, I never, ever draw for this account because I just can’t. I tried recently and completely failed and gave up.
So! I’m gonna get someone else to draw for me.
If anyone’s interested, just drop me a message and post your art under the tag #askstanley so I can see it. I really want this blog to be enjoyable for everyone, and it looks like getting an artist in on the job’s the best way to go.
Thank you all for following!
