If Dave doesn't win I told him in one his first TOFA submissions I think that if he lost I'd hit myself in the balls and send him the video. So "WIN DAVE WIN!!!!!!!"

Best of luck to both of you!
I actually thought last round brought forth the best results of this year so far all around!

I guess everyone is stepping it up.
Time for your A games fellas (and A+ games if you have it in you)!


GAH!

Wow interesting theme! Good job Dave and LazyMode for making in to the final round, its going to be close! And i feel bad for elfman and sandwich eater, they did such a great job as well.

Response to Final Round ( T O F A 2011 ) 2011-08-08 10:04:32


This will be very interesting as Jake has stepped it up 5 notches since the first round!
But Dave has been raping the competition so this will be exciting!

lol Dont get your hopes up. Seems like every time I post this picture I flesh out and find a better and new idea to do instead. This one is still in the barracks though.

I thought I'd throw you guys some eye candy while I develop this one. I won't be revealing anything about the story but here are some rough character sketches.

That looks like something I'd draw. :P

I'll definitely join TOFA next year, even though I'll have no chance compared to the talent TOFA seems to attract.

Good luck Dave and Lazy. Make this round amazing.

What does "a clean slate" means?

Sorry, not a native english speaker.

Also, it'd be fun to keep the thread alive.

Ok, I think I have my idea down. If I go this route (which I'm leaning a 90% towards it as of now) it will be unlike anything I've done the previous rounds of BOTH years I was in this, and it will be damn cute! I think I'm gonna need to actually Hire a musician though, I don't think my enormous backlog of royalty free music will cover this the way I want it to. Should be fun!

Response to Final Round ( T O F A 2011 ) 2011-08-09 13:46:40


:Hire a musician though.

..... i might (MIGHT) be able to help a little (or maybe alot T_T) with that... without having to pay.
