Character Design Contest ♯126- Contest Again

Ok, I'm gonna try something a bit out there this week. One of the main rules I ask people to follow for these contests is do not enter something you have entered into a previous contest. However, this week I am actively encouraging you to, if not break the rule, certainly bend it into new and interesting shapes.

What I want you to do is find one of your old contest entries and redo it. It can be from any contest (apart from the previous two contests, they're too recent), not just ones I've run, but from Jeff or HammerKnights contests as well. Just make sure you include the original for comparison, I want to see how much everyone has improved.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

  1. Ubiquitous Pixel

    If we enter our concept for the contest where we couldn’t use certain body shapes, does that rule still apply for the revamped version?

  2. @Ubiquitous Pixel- Unless you want the extra challenge, then no.

  3. @maniacmick- Both of your links lead to the exact same picture. You might want to correct that otherwise your entry won’t count.

  8. My redesign of The Sentinel, from Jeff’s ‘Everyday Heroes’ contest. It’s also one of my first contest entries, so it was probably about time to give her a revisit anyway.

  9. Well what better picture to re-enter than my first picture to make it into a poll. Annoyingly I can’t remember which contest it was, and after searching the archives I have still come up empty handed. But not to worry, I know it’s been entered before, how could I forget.
