Character Design Contest ♯38- It’s A Kind Of Magic

For this weeks challenge, I want you to create something magical, some form of witch, wizard or warlock, sage, sorcerer or spell-caster, mage or magician. You can create a modern Merlin or a fantasy fire-mage. My only stipulation is that they should be pictured performing some form of magic, be it casting a spell, riding a flying broom or turning a prince into a toad.

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.

    Hey folks,

    Haven’t been around lately. Been to busy running my business but I thought I’d check back in and well . . .

    This is a mage character in an RPG I’ve been playing for a few years. He is doing a sort of dimension door teleport.

    My youngest son announced a month or so ago that he wanted to run a campaign based on the show ‘Young Justice’ Where each player ran a Main character’s side kick. I created Arcane, Apprentice and sidekick to Dr. Strange.

    I haven’t been able to enter many contests lately, but I still watch, and I happen to have a character I’d just made that met the criteria.

    The Source Of All Magic cannot be seen by the human eye. The human mind visualizes it symbolically. Once interaction begins, a person might see it’s incredible power, it’s amazing finesse, it’s . . .

    A little something from one of my own things.

    The priestess held her hands over the Blade, newly blooded and bearing a green stone. The sudden glow that suffused the room caused the warrior to stand back in apprehension, watching the power course through the lithe woman, blowing back her cloak to reveal diaphanous robes beneath. The warrior felt the Blade come alive and it’s name, Demon’s Bane, burned in his mind.
    As he took up the Blade the priestess spoke, “You have been given a great gift of the Light. Use it well.”

    It’s fine for me. I’m not as strict on these things as Jeff or Hammerknight. Good to see you back man.

    I think Kaldath may have moved the pic to a different thread in the forum. @Rapidosian- you might want to repost an amended link.

    This was because Kaldath moved the link to a different forum thread. Here it is.
