Just thought I'd drop in a quick suggestion based on a thought I just had a few moments ago:

Rather than picking series, how about letting the participants choose what they want to work on? By this, I mean giving topics rather than titles. For example:

--> "Make an homage to the first manga you've ever read."
--> "Make an homage to the first anime you've ever watched."
--> "Make an homage to the manga series you're currently reading."
--> "Make an homage to the anime series you're currently watching."
--> "Make an homage to your favorite song using anime/manga style characters (make a picture that tells a story using the full song or a verse from it)."

Of course, you can choose specific series, but I think that people would enjoy working on topics since it gives them a lot more freedom to choose what they want to do. Not everyone is going to know the series that is chosen or will want to work on a specific series for whatever reason, so making the topics broad (naturally, with guidelines) rather than specific should help to bring in more participants.

Also, if you want to hold votings for series limit the votes to two series at a time and have participants PM you their votes. That way everything feels a lot more organized and ensures that the voting/decision process will go smoothly. From what I've seen, having people choose from a list what series they want to work on and then deciding the winner from whichever series comes up the most doesn't really provide very good results. In addition posting the votes in the thread kinda takes away from the discussions going on (also makes things harder when you gotta rummage through the thread to tally up the votes).

Looking forward to the second-go. ^_^

haha...I see. I'm pretty bad when it comes to remembering screen names, so I had completely forgotten that Mayor Banana had posted an image.

yeah sorry no vote this time. it takes too long and is inaccurate.
me choosing it is much more simpler, and you dont have to participate if you dont want to.
but i dont see why you wouldn't....

Same here. Though I only remember how to draw Pikachu and Psyduck, I'd most likely still end up screwing up those character designs somehow. #-o
