Ok, for this week's character design contest I want you to design the best 'Leader/ Ruler' character you can. I'm not thinking of like a "team leader" I'm thinking "World Leader" (yes with capitals). So, I want Kings, Queens, Emperors, Tyrants, Presidents, Dictators and Religious Rulers or any variation of the above that comes to mind. They can be from the past, the future or the present, from a fantasy realm, a sci-fi realm, a real or fictional country (just so long as they are your own creations and not recognisably a real-life person). Just make them awesome.
No limits on entries this week. 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. New rule: characters entered for these contests must have been made specifically for these contests (just to make sure no-one accidentally posts something they have entered into another contest previously).
P.s.- I'm giving up on the naming policy because so many people (some of whom I know for a fact know how to do it properly because they've done it before) still don't get it right, and just as long as you give your work a clear name and I can tell who its by from the name in the comments, I'll just rename the file when I save it. HOWEVER, this only applies to these contests, djuby may not have a similar policy for the Pop Quizzes.
C’mon, you’ve always suspected it…
Entry #1: King Bromeare La`Damor
this is my first time using deviant art for this, so here’s hoping the link works 🙂
My Entry is The Sorcerer Pharaoh of Osiris
Future War Hero-turned-Leader
and Entry Three:
Queen of Malecia, Witch of the Dark Mists, the Unspeakable Lady – she is called by many names but her true name has been lost in eternity. Her evilness has ruled the secret country of Malecia for 500 years, a nation forgotten by the rest of the world because her evil powers have made it so.
The story is not mine and the characters also don’t mine. It belongs to Atomic Punk. This is the original story what gives me The Atomic Punk and inspired to make this picture.
Princess Erzsé and her pet Rebecka. The Princess is heiress to the Crown of the Three Sisters.
The Three Sisters are the planets Isis, Rhea, and Anu in the isolationist Hestia system. Rebecka is a nuppa, the native people of Isis.
The Sisterhood had enslaved the nuppa generations ago.
Both the Sisterhood and the nuppa are a “selected species.” They are clones or conceived artificially. All Sisters and nuppa are female.
Rebecka is a nuppa. The nuppa had originally brought humans to their world to fight their wars. Countess Bathory led a revolt
and became queen of the solar system. Now, the nuppa are the slaves.
Erzsé is a spoiled child. She delights in teasing and tormenting Rebecka. Erzsé calls her pet “Cica”. (Cica is hungarian word it means Kitten, Kitty,)
Lukreesha, Atlantean Queen.
General Jarvis Blackburn
Kordumat, the ancient God-king of Atlantis. Feared and worshipped by the denizens of Atlantis, The evil Kordumat ruled Atlantis with an iron fist. With the ability to generate electricity, he alone possessed the power to wipe out all life in Atlantis, as well as all other undersea life in a single motion…if he so wished.
(I know it is to ‘beings’ but they are one entity.)
Jupiter Quinn aka “Zeus” is a direct descendant of the original greek god Zeus and leader of “New Olympus” – a city-state concealed from the outside world by a powerful energy force field and the world’s most technologically advanced nation. He vowed to never rest until his people (the “Lost Gods”) are finally worshiped again.
The people were fed up. No one could be agreed upon. No leader had been able to make good decisions in every category required, even when the best advisors were available. Worse, research scientists had discovered mathematical and genetic proof that the ambition required to suffer through BECOMING a leader would always make the people having it less fit to rule. No one ever solved the problem of how to get people to NEVER think “what’s in it for me?” or “I’M important.”
. . . but the think tank at Lab J figured it out. 3 carefully chosen and conflicting units, wired in series, would eliminate biases. They laughed at the idea that this would amount to a computer. “Ridiculous!” said their new spokesman, “a computer wouldn’t include the human factor, as we have clearly done. Our choice for candidate will be running on the ballot under the legal name, ‘The Rational Choice,’ and we will be happy to demonstrate our candidate’s superiority. The finest minds available went into it! The decisions of OUR candidate will be superior to any candidate you offer. We are looking forward to the debates.”
I’d like to substitute my entry with this new one: The Cyborg War Hero-turned-President.
I’m 1/2ing trouble with this 1, trying for QUEENS, getting PRINCESSES!
The river of the underworld is fed by the souls of her victims.
The Agreement was actually remarkably simple. All leaders benefit from their peoples’ greatness, so they must suffer for their peoples’ suffering. Once every year, a random sample is chosen by computer. The people selected are required by law to provide information on their tax returns, recent employment history, whether they have received governmental assistance, whether they have been through natural disasters, victims of crime, etc.
Every hundred thousand law-abiding citizens who have had their lives improve drastically and have a high opinion of the leader becomes worth one week added to the term of office. Every hundred law-abiding citizens who have had their lives change for the worse [i]in any way that the government contributed to[/i] is worth one subjective minute of pain at a single pain level. Up to three pain levels at a time may be felt. The pain is delivered by direct input. Lasers are tuned to nerve frequencies to activate the electrical signals in the nervous system. The result is the memory of pain with no physical damage. No leader going through this Vote of Confidence has ever had a psychotic episode or died of heart failure. A surprising number of them have retired from office and sought therapy.
Herr D you are a genius. This system must be implemented immediately. Unfortunately we might see a few deaths (ok so maybe not that unfortunately, especially if we put former leaders to the Vote)
I swear this’ll be the last substitute for my entry:
Kaldar the leader of the Ka’ratuun a race of highly intelligent and evil lizard creatures. they have slowly but successfully conqured the galaxy, and to think they did it with a monopolizing fast-food chain called Horook’s.
I think this one FINALLY reads queen!
and here is a king
Harlekin, thanks! I love that design! In fact, related to my first entry:
Erszébet császárné: Empress Elizabeth Bathory the First.
Yes, the infamous Hungarian Countess. She did not die imprisoned in a tower. She was trained as a geneticist to clone human soldiers on an alien world. Elizabeth turned on her masters, destroyed their civilization, and became supreme ruler of the solar system.
Ok people, this weeks contest is closed. The poll will be up later.
