So, this week we're going to do another Public Domain challenge. But, to keep it interesting, we're going to have a different twist on the theme. Instead of doing a category based challenge, we're going to take a look at characters created by one single author, in this case Charles Dickens. You have free reign with the entire Dickensian catalogue, so pick any character you feel like.
And incase anyone is struggling to think of any ideas for who to do, here's a list of Dickensian characters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Dickensian_characters
As per usual, no limits on the number of entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, 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.
If you don’t know how to enter, there’s a handy little diagram below the jump.
Oh, and my favourite Dickens stories are Great Expectations and Christmas Carol. Just incase anyone was wondering.
Is it OK to use something I made for a Christmas Swap on the Forum?
JR I think that’s the wrong address. It doesn’t lead to anything. Try this one.
The Ghost of Jacob Marley, from “A Christmas Carol”
My First Time submitting, hope this works.
The Ghost of Christmas Present
Mr. Jaggers from “Great Expectations. His description: Jaggers, Mr. is the secretive lawyer who mediates between Pip and his mysterious benefactor in Great Expectations. He is responsible for Abel Magwitch’s wife Molly’s acquittal of murder charges and oversees the placement of their daughter Estella in Satis House under Miss Havisham’s care, unbeknownst to Abel. “He was a burly man of an exceedingly dark complexion, with an exceedingly large head and a correspondingly large hand…He was prematurely bald at the top of his head, and had bushy black eyebrows that wouldn’t lie down but stood up bristling.His eyes were set deep in his head and were disagreeably sharp and suspicious…”
Second entry Ghost of Christmas Past.
