October Original Character Contest

Postby Esoteric » Mon Oct 02, 2006 5:49 pm

(Thanks for approving this Yumie! Would one of the mods move it to the Art Contest forum? Thanks!)

*Clears throat* Ahem! Here's the new original character contest thread for October. I've been fortunate enough to get to choose the next scenerio. I've thought about it, and here it is!

Your character has just met someone in the forest. It could be a chance meeting or a planned one. It could be an enemy, or a friend. It could be human, or not. You decide!

In case you're new this month, the idea of this contest is to make up your own character, complete with biography, and place them in the scenario described above. So draw a picture of your character 'meeting someone in the forest' and post it in this thread along with a biography for your character explaining the situation.

All entries must be received by the end of the month...right Jaden?

There are four catagories for winners, but I can't remember all of them right now. Hopefully Jaden will refresh my memory!

Good luck everyone and have fun!

Cool topic Esoteric. Can't wait to see what it produces.

I really hope I can find the time to participate this month, especially since I already have ideas running around in my head. But homework has really been pwning my time lately. ;_;

So is this like last time, where the top winner/whatever the title is is the one who does the next month's contest?

Yup, although Jaden's still really in charge.

I'm glad everyone seems to like the scenerio. I chose it because of the extreme amount of possibilites it afforded. I'm super tempted to come up with my own version, even though I probably won't have time this month.

Welcom aboard Mega.EXE! Hope you can participate! And to the rest of you who entered last time, glad you're back and ready to try again! Oh, and here's the list of award catagories from last month.

Most creative design.
Most creative background.
Best thechnical design.
Most exciting bio/personality/history for the main character.

There will also be best over all winner selected.

Done. :hug:
Every year in Uganda, innumerable children simply. . . disappear. These children all stolen under the cover of darkness from their homes and impressed into the guerilla armies of the LRA [Lord's Resistance Army]. In the deserts of Uganda, they are forced to witness the mindless slaughter of other children until they themselves can do nothing but kill. Kill. These children, generally ranging from ages 5-12, are brainwashed into murdering in the name of the resistance and into stealing other children from their beds to suffer the same fate.

Because of this genocide of innocence, hundred and hundreds of children live every night sleeping in public places miles from their homes, because they know that if the do not-- they will disappear. They will become just another number in this genocide to which the international community has chosen to turn a blind eye. They will become, in affect, invisible-- Invisible Children.

But there are those who are trying to fight against this slaughter of Uganda's children. They fight to protect these "invisible children." Please, help them help a country full of children who know nothing by fear. Help save the innocence. For more information concerning how you can help and how you can get an incredible video about this horrific reality, visit the Invisible Children home page.

Clicky

Bear (the guy in the pic) was blinded in a war.Feeling that his blindness would make him a burden he moved in to a thick wood to be a hermit.Two or three years past and his hands and feet became his eyes.He soon knew every rock and tree in the woods.As time went on a girl from the village nearby saw him and followed him through the woods she was intranced by him as she could see he was blind but did not stumble.


After she made her self known to him she came every day to the woods to see him and eventualy fell in love with him. The last day she came to she him she told him she must leave and they might never meet again.Bear took her in his arms and they shared one last tender kiss.

Well, it's the Thanksgiving long weekend up here in Canada. Yay for time to kill! I sketched this one for the heck of it during church and hacked some colour at it in Photoshop. Honestly, I was just looking for an excuse to draw a magic moose ;D

Name: Kali Dephenia
Age: 14
Biography: Kali was born in the village of Leiids, located in the eastward bounds of the kingdom of Trevayn. Her society exists within an era similar to medieval Europe in our world. Leiids is very isolated and the people live quite simply, in tune with the land. But the Kingdom has recently come under the control of a new king, a distant relative of the old king that may or may not have been involved in the elderly monarch's death. The new king is insanely determined to exercise an iron grip over the people and has begun to demand more and more of their resources, leaving villages such as Leiids struggling to survive.

However, the ancient powers within the land have begun to stir once again. This is especially evident to Kali; while foraging further than usual from Leiids, she happens to stumble across the legendary Mystical Muus of Entwist. The land ain't happy and the new king is undoubtedly going to hear about it. Very, very soon-

Hopefully I kept all the info straight :sweat:
