Character Design Contest ♯147- Do A Thing

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge all I want you guys to do is create the best image you can. Sounds simple enough right? Well, there's a twist. Well, two actually. Firstly, within the image you create you must use at least 2 items from backgrounds- shapes (not including any of the gradient shapes) and at least 3 insignia's that are not used for masking purposes. These must be used in a fashion that makes it obvious that they are included, but must not be the main focus of the image. Make of that what you will.

Oh, and the second twist. One entry only if you please. It's basically a free-for-all challenge so there needs to be some sort of limitation.

As per usual 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.

If you don’t know how to enter, there’s a handy little diagram below the jump.

  1. Ice Lancer, you might want to read the contest description, again, and maybe take a look at what Keric posted… Remember, what he’s submitting is more the frame, than the picture inside! {Very well done, by the way, Keric!}

  2. I couldn’t think of anything, so I did some weird “symbolical” flag. Make of it what you will.

    I know the backround isn’t amazing but I worked dang hard on that isgina

  4. My Entry:

    Mami Asai, Hired Assassin

    ( BTW the two Background item that are actually being used as a background are not the two “official” pieces for this challenge, I used others in the characters design )

  5. A very evil, sinister Frankenstein. As for the requirements, I used the background shapes to make a neato background, and I used the insignias to put some mud splatter on his boots and on his cape. I hope that’s enough to qualify me.

  6. I wanted to do something a little different with my characters. I write a lot of warriors and when I use the Machine, I make a lot of battles and ‘action’ shots. So instead I made a quiet moment. Aura and Aldar, Warriors and future monarchs, taking some time alone during the bustle of their wedding day.

  7. Joe stopped eating bread after last year’s grain harvest. He quit his hired hand position and drank himself into oblivion. He never said why . . .
