The Flash by Brian Mansfield

Fifth Annual

Swimsuit Challenge


The results are in! This year's Swimsuit Art Challenge had seven excellent entries, running the gamut from humor to fashion, from cartoony to realistic, and from black-and-white to full-color.

Just click on the small images to examine the full-sized entries. The real beauty's in the details. People with current standard browsers will actually see the images floating in front of them, where you can move them around to your pleasure. Those with older browsers will see them in a separate window and will have to hit their "Back" buttons to return here.

Power Company "The Power Company" by The Brothers Grinn

Our first entry is by the Brothers Grinn. This pic of the Power Company had one of our judges rolling in laughter! The Brothers always bring the big guns to the swimsuit challenge, don't they?

DC Swimwear "DC Swimwear" by Dan Forsyth

Second is "DC Swimwear", by Dan Forsyth. As one of the judges quipped, "The tan lines are a very simple but effective way to state that YES, it IS possible for Wonder Woman to be wearing even less clothing.

Titan Guys "Titan Guys" by Rosaline Terrill

Titan Guys", by Rosaline Terrill, is our third pic, depicting what happens when Law-and-Order Dick is too rigid in scheduling the group's free time.

Donna Troy "DC Swimwear" by Dan Forsyth

Another entry from Rosaline is this wonderfully rendered image of Donna Troy. One judge commented that perhaps, since she's not actually wearing a swimsuit, that she should be disqualified. Naturally, the other judges overruled him and beat him with a sock full of oranges.

WW, Troia and Zatanna "Wonder Woman, Troia and Zatanna at the Beach" by Fred Sadek

Fifth on our list is Fred Sadek's renditon of Wonder Woman, Troia and Zatanna. A couple of the judges weren't quite sure what was happening with the glowing ball, but all agreed it was a good pic nonetheless.

Knockout (Vertigo) "Knockout" by Nikoru Chan

Next, we have an entry from Nikoru Chan, showing us a very lovely Knockout (from the Vertigo Comic). There's not a lot to say here, except for "WOW". He can sure draw a nice lookin' female, can't he?

Joker and Harley "DK2 Cast" by Yocum

And our seventh and final entry is from Larry O'Keefe, with a whimsical image entitled "Joker and Harley's Day (?) at the Beach". Our judges' comments: "What is really impressive is the linework. (Look at Harley's shoes!) It's clean and detailed; reminiscent of great French and Italian comic art. And Funny, too!"

LookerHonorable mention goes to Brian Mansfield's "The Flash" which graces our page above. It was decided that the piece was a funny cartoon about the beach but it didn't really qualify as a swimsuit piece, as the Flash is simply preparing to run around naked.

Also, Yusuf's art piece of Looker from The Outsiders (right) arrived after the deadline, so it could not qualify for the judging.

So there you have it! What are your favorites? Well, it doesn't matter, because the judges have spoken!

And the Winner is.... "Donna Troy" by Rosaline Terrill!

Rosaline will be recieving a copy of "Superman/Doomsday", signed by Dan Jurgens, and donated by John Torrisi. Thanks to all who participated in the Fifth Annual Swimsuit Art Challenge!

Fred Sadek has a blurb.

When not drawing funny looking spandex clad super-heros, Russ Yocum divides his time between church, substitute teaching, 2 Siberian Huskies, a ferret, a green anole, assorted tropical fish, homeschooling his sons Russell Jr and Zeke, doting on his wife, Jo and drafting run-on sentences! In his SPARE time he is considering building an ark!
