We start with the word, “SWIM.” We vote. Winner gets to pick the next word but one catch. They can add, remove or swap out ONE letter. And also rearrange the whole combination of letters. So the winner might decide to do “MEWS.” Or “AIMS.” Or even “WHIMS.” Those are just examples. Basically, the letters would mutate over time, but you will always know what some of the letters will be next time. This allows you to hone skills on those letters. RULES: Anyone can enter, regardless of skill level. Characters and backgrounds are allowed, but letters are the focus. Any form of graff is acceptable, from handstyles to throwies to pieces. Color is optional. You can even submit a pencil sketch. You may only submit one sketch to the battle. If you submit more than one sketch, even with another account, your last posted sketch will count as your submission. Digital is allowed. New battles will start on the 1st of each month. All submissions MUST be posted to this thread, by midnight EST three days before the month ends (for this first battle, that means Sunday night, at midnight to Monday, March 28th). Any entry submitted after the deadline, no matter how good... no matter how much you plead and beg, will not count. Sorry... one month is plenty of time to enter. Entries made just for the sake of beef will also be disqualified. People who talk shit or start beef in here might just end up disqualified from all future battles. We are here to have fun, not stroke your tiny ego. VOTING: You get one vote. You do NOT have to be entered to vote. You cannot vote for yourself. The winner has until the last day of the month (for this first battle, March 31st) to pick a new word. It must conform to the rules outlined for words. One letter added or removed or changed. Letters arranged however you like. If you do not follow these rules, your entry will be disqualified and the runner up gets to choose. I know that’s a lot of stuff to read. It’s pretty much like any other battle on here. Please read the rules carefully before you enter. Have fun, keep this thread free of beef, and use these battles as a tool to practice and refine your skill. If you have questions, ASK. Even if they feel stupid. Someone else probably has the same question.
