Hey over at the coloring contest we are going to start having ashley post the winners on the front page every month! Was wondering if you guys would want to send ashley just one BULK pm with both the winners of the Coloring contest and this contest? and then they would both get on the front page?

tell me what you think!

Cool picture, Dai-go. I like the colors.

Well, I finally sat down and forced myself to draw something. Here's my entry:

Name: Peter (the guy in the middle)
Age: 15
Bio: All his life, Peter has felt that he was too weak, small, and insignificant to do anything that mattered. But when an evil--the thing on the right--comes to take his best friend--Cassie, the girl on the left--he realizes that he has to do something, even if he thinks he'll fail.

So Peter comes to the rescue, wearing tinfoil and duct tape armor and wielding a plastic sword.

This was a tricky one, so many awesome entries to look at.

The winner*s* are as following.

Best graphical design - Shao, closely followed by Dai-go.
Best artistic background - Soul Alive, closely followed by ChristianKitsune.
Best artistic design - Shao Feng-Li
Best History/bio/personality - Soul Alive.

So we have a merry draw this time. Shao Feng-Li and Soul Alive. Two of our best at CAA. Well, a worthy draw for two worthy winners. You may want to pm eachother to start the next month's original character contest :D

I will PM Ashly and send her a suggestion that Vernhal proposed.
Of two evils, choose neither - Charles Spurgeon.

You know, I really like your entry, Aileen! Tinfoil and ductape...the concept plus the story behind it is so very original. So cool! Your evil shadow person is especially nice too. I'm very glad you entered!

Congrats to the winners! I hope to see you guys participating again next month!

Congratulations to Soul Alive and Shao! You guys both did a great job.

Everyone else had really good pictures too!

Thank you for the compliments, Esoteric. I actually got the idea from a song a heard a long time ago. And the evil-shadow guy is my favorite part of the picture.

Dai-go, you are not that far behind..... if behind at all. You had a cracking first entry and I am quite sure you will capitalise on that in the near future :)

Would it be rude to ask that the "subject" of the contest be posted in the title?

I read your "fantasy/mythical" post...I was only saying in the actual "title" Ex: June Contest Orignial Character(s): Armor - that would have caught my attention. lol Most of the contests I've read up...I don't seem qualified to enter. Meaning not being that good.

No, and actually that's probably a good idea for future contests. Unfortunately though, I don't believe thread titles are editable(except by mods), so if the thread starter forgets to do this...eh heh. But your armor design is stunningly awesome. It would have been a wicked entry! Who knows, there may be similar theme again soon...(it's the winner who gets to pick for the next month).

Sorry, SolidArmor. I just went with the standard title that the contests are given each month - none of them have given the contest topic in the title. If I happen to have the privilege of posting a Character Design Contest thread again, I'll try to get the topic in the title.

You might suggest including the topic in the title to Jaden Mental, since he organizes the contest with the exception of posting the new threads and choosing the topic, which he delegates to the previous month's winner(s).

Shao Feng-Li and I just threw out a fairly random subject. And the subject really varies from month to month. It wasn't geared for any specific artists or not, just something that people could play around with for fun.
I actually probably won't be participating either, as creature design isn't a forte of mine, and I'm entirely too busy for my own good this summer with school and work, but if I do end up having time, I may give it a shot just to try my hand at something new.

Your armor design was awesome. Even if you don't choose to participate in a particular month's contest, we'd certainly love to see more of your art in the regular gallery.
