Digging up a grave, huh? Well, not like they needed it anymore anyway.

Rushing through the rest of my slate so I can finish voting and get to writing, but this one's only got a single two-sentence comment so far. :| I wish the art gallery showed comment numbers.

I was just about to half-heartedly rank this "best of the doodles" mid-slate when the full twist of the prompt interpretation hit me and I laughed. Well played, artist. The XKCD-style caption provides a bonus grin, too. And while the art style here is a little cruder than some entries (the bouquet (?) in particular looks like a dead Muppet), the facial expression on the grave-robber is great, which is important because it's a pivotal focal point.

Another not-top-tier-but-solid entry -- I encourage you to clean up some of your lines and turn in something a little more polished than scribbly, and this'll have a shot at the top.

Grave Manners

This was one of my second rate ideas–I judged that Longest Way and View from the Top were the ones best worth polishing, and so I put most of my efforts towards finishing them. On the last night, having never gotten beyond a few draft sketches for this one, I took the best sketch and cleaned it up a bit for submission.

This seems to have gotten about the attention that it deserved. Thanks for commenting, and I’m glad that the jokes were appreciated.
