Character Design Contest ♯37- Opposites Attract

This week I want you to create a picture that represents a duality, two opposites interacting. This can be through two characters, one character in two halves (split down the middle if you will), a split screen, any way you can think of so long as it shows two opposites in one picture. You can do any opposites you choose (if you are unsure of what I mean by opposites, think Male/ Female, Good/ Evil, Life/ Death, Night/ Day, Angels/ Demons, Land/ Sea, that sort of thing, it shouldn't be to hard to think of a good theme).

I know that there are some people out there that will really be able to make this theme their own, so everyone needs to be on the top of their games here.

Please make sure you have read the rules before entering. As usual, no limit on entries, so 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.

    He’s from the slums. She’s filthy rich.
    He’s a member of the Resistance. She’s the Emperor’s daughter.
    He is Chaos. She represents Order.
    Together they will face the Onslaught. The Scourge.

    Classic demon/angel dichotomy here with some word play.
    Knight & Dei:

    Knight is a suit of armor possessed by a fire demon who manifests himself as a sword and shield. Dei is an angel of pure white light (Dei means “God” in Latin for y’all who didn’t know).

    I like the sound of this one and hope I will have time to contribute this go around but things have been really busy lately on my end and they aren’t going to get any easier for a while. My wife has voluntold me that I am participating in our towns next formal dance show. I have been taking different dance classes with her because it made her happy then the instructor said something about a show one day and I was all hold up what show LOL. I just got conned. So with that, work, and kids my personal time has been a commodity of short supply.
    P.S. please bring back the spell check option, I liked that before I posted because my fingers get ahead of my brain sometimes and I like the option to go back and check so at least it looks like I know how to spell LOL

    2 opposing elements, something inhuman and superpowered versus respectable regular human, egoistic rampage versus doing one’s job–several opposites.

    Sometimes the Big Bad isn’t really all that.

    Umm…dude…? I don’t know if this is funny or awesome, but it’s awesome. If I could stop talking and typing, I would be speechless. *Wayne’s World bow*

  9. Timedrop23 says:

    Sorry for double-post.

    I give you a dance between Life & Death (a.k.a. Vida & the Reaper)

    One is a tired old officer whose patience for mischief has run dry over the years.
    The other is a playful young rebel who just wants to get out and have fun.

    Quite the unlikely duo…

    I really love the Gender Bender mangas, and this picture is inspired by a manga. The manga name is Nicoichi, one of the coolest stories what i ever read for this type of theme. A man who change himself for make happy his children. (Read it i can’t want to spoiler more.)

    So i enter this picture in a past contest, in this case this is not an entry, only want to show to i have perfect themed picture for this contest. I think this picture perfectly show the contest theme, the duality.

    The picture name is True Self

    Good contest theme, but my english not enough good i use my couple’s picture? So i think if in the picture a male and female is
    perfect for the contest?

    Miss White and Miss Black made the discovery of a lifetime when they synthesized a new crystalline substance that controls light. The crystals, which they now wear, react to the emotional state of the wearer. Restful states cause the crystals to absorb the light surrounding them, whereas agitated states cause them to project light outward. Miss Black keeps calm at all times to maximize her stealth skills, whereas Miss White amps herself up to blind her enemies. Together, they cut a swath through the criminal underworld of New York.

  15. H@RLEK(!)N says:

    Direct entry.

    Duality. Need no more example. Wich is the original the male part of the female part. Think it out. – Gender Bender rocks.
