No COTW today

Sorry, but I won't be able to do a Character Of The Week post today. I've had so much stuff to do and now I just feel completely out of it, I can't even think of what to write. Admittedly I'd usually have done the post yesterday and scheduled it for today, but I forgot, what with it being first day of my third year of uni and sorting out my final year project. Hopefully I'll be able to do it next week.

  1. So, open thread today? Or should we post links to our own COTWs? 😀

    Yeah, go for it

  3. I can’t find this week’s saves! So I’m going with some older characters for COTW.

    My COTW is barbario’s GREMLINS!

    They are just so cute. This is a really fun piece with a lot of personality and story-telling. Also, it serves as warning not to talk to the stranger in a trench coat lurking in the alley.

    Well, I just uploaded it to the FB group today, and it hasn’t gotten any response yet, so I’ll post a link to the Flickr image here, and garner some publicity by making it my COTW.

    Here’s the deal: I have a friend who wants to go to the Ren Faire dressed as a Drow, and she works at Coffee Bean. So, I made this image of her, in the form of a mock advertisement, and she loved it! I actually got it to *look* like her noticeably, and she LOVES the skull belt (she keeps asking where she can get one in RL).

    After getting permission from her, AND from Jeff, I now give you, SYLVIA, DARK-ELVEN BARISTA!

    Love the motto. It’s Halloween season. Your friend should be able to find some plastic skulls to link together or tie to a belt.

    Myself, I’m thinking of going as SheZow.

    I don’t even know what that is . . .

    SheZow is one of the she-eesiest animations out there. It makes me laugh and groan at the same time.

    This is my most “out of character” character and the most wicked!
    Summoned Johnnie

    The things that are throwing me off are the gold in the sleeves, the pajamas, and lack of footwear. If he’s a ghost, he looks a little too solid. The vibe that I get is he is a re-animated corpse thanks to the electric collar.

    Maybe some scars, exposed bone / rotting flesh, or even grubs crawling out of the skin. I see that you created him for the “One Part, Many Characters” contest. In that context, he works pretty well. Given a few touches and a story, he could be a full character. Hope that helps.
