December Original Character Contest

Postby Photosoph » Mon Dec 04, 2006 6:34 pm

Hey guys! Here's this month's Original Character Contest. If a Mod could please move this to the Art Contest Forum, I'd really appreciate it. ^_^ Thank you, in advance. ^^

For anyone new to this, I'll quote Lizardqueen's instructions: All we need is a drawing of the character and a brief biography describing the background of the character and the situation.


This month's concept/scenario:

T'is the season! So how does your character react to the snow? Do they play in it -building strange snow men, or perhaps a zombie snowman army? Perhaps they blast it away with a burst of flame, and skulk around indoors? Perhaps there's no snow where your character comes from; if so, is there a substitute? Sand, maybe?

So that's basically it: snow. What would your character do with snow? o_O
This is, obviously, inspired by the fact that Christmas is coming this year... so feel free to tie that into your entries. :grin:

Contest closes at the end of December, and the entries will be judged by Jaden Mental. Have fun!

I'd post something in the contest but...I don't really feel like making up a background for a drawing. So I'll probably find another contest. Good luck to all the contestants though.

Aw... T_T Although since it's snow, you could do a really simple background... :P It is white, after all. ;)

<Edit>Oh; unless you were talking about the biography. :sweat: Heh. ^^

You can do it, TD! If you do have problems coming up with a biography you can always convince someone else to do it for you. ;) . But no pressure. ^^"

Haha, snow is a nice theme. I like the idea of a snow army. :evil:

Thanks CR. You put a smile on my face. On my lips to be exact!

You want to help me come up with a little biograophy for her? The only thing that I've got is that she likes Apple Cider and Fireplaces.

Well, I can't actually post this right into the Art Contest thread. ^_^" I'm waiting for a mod to find this and move the thread. :sweat: But I know they're busy people. ^^

Yay! First entry! ^_^ It looks really cool, TD. Love the shading, and I agree; she looks so pretty!
Mmmm... apple cider. ^^ I love that too (the warm, non-alcoholic kind is what I'm talking about ;) ), but I'd never tried it until a few Christmases ago when a friend from Michigan made some up and gave us a few cups of it. It's good!

Try PMing Yumie. She seems to do a lot with the Art Contest forum these days. I may enter this month if I have time and an idea.

I was wondering where this thread was - no wonder I hadn't found it, I don't visit Goof-Off very often... lol

I should be able to do something. Sounds like a fun topic Photosoph.

*Hopes she can see lots more cool entries this time around.* ^^ I've drawn a pic, but think I might use that pic for something else... perhaps I'll draw another pic for this thread/contest, but I'm not sure.
Drawing be fun, though. ^^

All right, if you're doing something this month, Myoti, I'll try to get off my butt and do something, too. ^^" No promises, though. I'm a chronic procrastinator.

Name: Glow Kindling
Age: 17
Likes: Hot stuff (fire, flannel pajamas, kimchi, Mexican food, himself)
Notes: When the children started disappearing, it had to be the "snowman." An abominable creature masquerading under the pseudonym "Frosty" had been sighted by a few witnesses of dubious reliability. Glow knew immediately that everything rested on him. An icicle through the heart should do it, though he would have liked a flame thrower. He had never cared much for winter.
Materials: india ink and a small paintbrush
Ho ho ho.
