2017 Whitney Cosplay Series: Master Voting List + Schedule/EARLY ACCESS


Well, Halloween has come and gone, and with it goes another round of the annual Whitney cosplay sketches. This year’s roster was crazy fun to blow through, and I’m still kind of bewildered that the month flew by so quickly. It feels like we shouldn’t even be halfway done at this point, yet here we are.

So, what happens next? Now we go into…

THE VOTING PHASE

Now that all the sketches are complete and posted, the voting phase begins. For the next 8 days the pieces will be accruing votes via likes/favorites/comments/reblogs/retweets/etc. Basically, any form of social interaction is counted this year; in previous years, only Tumblr was counted, but this year I am counting all four sites on which the cosplays have been posted: Tumblr, Twitter, FurAffinity and DeviantArt. All forms of direct user interaction count as a single vote (not counting views), and at the end of the voting period, the piece that earns the highest number of votes will be upgraded first out the gate to ink & color, free of charge! The rest will move on to the funding phase to be unlocked throughout the remainder of the year.

FUNDING PHASE - ORIGINAL LINEART + EARLY ACCESS

Another reward continuing from last year’s run is the benefit of purchasing the original inked lineart for each piece that you individually fund with a single $30 donation. Ordinarily each piece just needs to reach $30 in total donations (whether in one single donation or multiple), but those who completely fund a single piece themselves will also be purchasing that piece’s original artwork as a reward. As always, those who donate $15 total during the funding phase also earn a free copy of the 2017 print collection once the book is complete. All original artwork will be shipped alongside your copy of the book, in a single package.

So what’s changing this year? Early access, that’s what! For the general public, the funding phase is kicking off on November 10th, but those members of the Peter & Whitney Patreon and the Peterverse Discord get the benefit of first dibs on the donations. The Patreon folks will gain access 24 hours in advance, while the Discord folks will get 12 hours in advance.

VOTING/EARLY ACCESS SCHEDULE

Wed, Nov 1: Voting phase begins
Wed, Nov 8 @ 8pm EST: Votes will be tallied live on Picarto to announce the winner of this year’s free upgrade
Thur, Nov 9 @ 12pm EST: The early access link will be shared with all Patreon members (no tier restrictions)

PeterAndCompany's Profile Picture

Jonathan Ponikvar
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
My name is Jonathan Ponikvar. I'm a published comic artist who graduated from SCAD with a Bachelor's in Sequential Art (comics and cartooning), with additional graduate-level training under my belt in the same field. I now work professionally as a Multimedia/Web Developer while producing/publishing comics and pinup illustrations. I've also been known to play some crazy piano on occasion. My wife Whitney is also one of the most talented artists I know, and together we are the creative team behind two comics that have been published online since 2005. Her character is also the focal point of an annual pinup cosplay series that I produce around Halloween each year.

The Peterverse is the name of the universe where both our comics take place. Peter & Company tells the story of a young cat named Peter and his special friend, a duck named Seth whom only Peter can see. Peter & Whitney is the sequel series to P&C, telling the story of how Peter and his soulmate Whitney find each other in college and start their lives together.

Peterverse Comics and Websites:
Peter & Company - "What if, to a child, what appeared to be an imaginary friend... were in fact, his guardian angel?" The story of Peter and his friend Seth, a supernatural duck who was assigned to help Peter survive his childhood intact. Currently available in printed volumes via Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and coming soon in animated form.

Peter & Whitney - The story of two childhood friends finding each other again in college, falling in love, getting married, and everything that happens in between.

The Peterverse Picarto - Watch our weekly streams on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, as Whitney and I both work together to get our comics and other projects done.

Could you send me a link to the first strip of P&C? I'm interested in reading this work. I just came across this searching furry art on DA.
