Character Design Challenge #303 – The International Legion for Justice: Phase 3.

Ching Tsu was born in August of 1925 in a remote province of Imperial China. The rumors of the young girl who could control the winds and rains were well known, but most considered her existence a fable at best. She met Major Patriot at a rally welcoming him to Shanghai in 1941, and was inspired to join him as the youngest member of the ILJ.

She named herself Feng Po Po, after the Chinese Goddess of storms

Your challenge this week is to design the costume for Feng Po Po.

There is no limit on number of entries this week.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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 warning. 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. 

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Sunday, January 8th at 9:00am Eastern.

    Here’s my first cut at Feng Po Po and Hǔ (虎), her tiger. She is carrying her Bag of Winds, from which she is conjuring a concentrated mini-storm.

    Here’s my take on Ching Tsu A.K.A. Feng Po Po…

    When Feng Po Po first joined the ILJ she wanted to be a symbol of hope, grace, wisdom, and peace in order to inspire her people as well as others around the world. Around this time she has a decent grasp of how to use her powers but still does not bear 100% control over them so she takes on a more conservative role and only unleashes the full extent of her powers as necessary. She tries to remain calm under pressure and believes in using her powers for peaceful means only. Her adolescent innocence proved to become the glue that held the ILJ together in difficult times.

    As time went on and the years passed, Feng Po Po became a hero in her own right and became an internationally recognized figure for her grace, poise, and mastery of her power. While taking time off to revisit her home and make sure everything was OK with her loved ones, she was captured by a cult that became obsessed with the notion that she was their true Goddess who had abandoned them. They performed arcane rituals on her and set to purify her of the ways of the western world. They blinded her and shaved her eyebrows and sent her to another dimension to complete the purification ritual. In this dimension she was blind and had no access to her powers and she aged 15 years. Then a mysterious astral tiger named Yún hǔ (Sky Tiger) appeared before her and helped her to discover how to utilize the full extent of her powers. With Yún hǔ by her side she escaped from the dark dimension and slayed her captors just before the rest of the ILJ came to attempt to rescue her. It soon came to her attention that what was 15 years in the dark dimension was only 72 hours on Earth. The totality of this experience left her moody and darker, but her powers grew exponentially. Now with Yún hǔ alongside her she returned to her duties as a hero alongside the ILJ and utilizes her powers more carefully, knowing now that if she should ever lose control the results could prove catastrophic… almost god-like in nature…
