Character Design Challenge #465– RPG Character Classes Challenge – Part4 –Monks and Martial Artists

For the next few weeks we will be building a team of RPG characters based on the following classes: Warrior/Fighter, Knight/Paladin, Barbarian/Berserker, Monk/Martial Artist, Archer/Ranger, Thief/Rogue/Assassin, Priest/Healer, Mage/Wizard, and finally Summoner/Necromancer/Druid.

Your CDC challenge this week is to create an original Monk or Martial Artist.

The winning entrant will receive a HM3 version of their character rendered by yours truly.

The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges:

Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters.No characters based on Official RPG NPC's ( Non-Player Characters ). Please keep all submissions PG13. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Monday, June 8th  at 6:00pm Eastern

    Ling DonKar:

    Ling DunKar is a monk of Rundi, the god of energy. Though some people may think that monks are just harmless, old men, this particular one is not. He is trained in martial arts and specializes in the two-bladed staff. He may look small and frail, but he can take out any assassin or warrior with his staff that is blessed by Rundi himself. His life’s mission is to do his god’s will.
    The tattoo on his forehead is the symbol of his order. In this portrait, he is meditating and is in his Energy Space, which only the most loyal of monks may enter.

    Dragon Monk

    He is an expert in all weapons, and all martial arts. He has a dragon aura that he uses to fight, and also protect him.
    His prayer beads intensify and focus his elemental powers. He is similar to Aang from Avatar, and can manipulate and manifest the elements.

    MONK – Way of the Demon Hunter

    This order, sponsored by the Church of Kalkin is dedicated to the hunting down, and destruction of demons and demon-kind. They are subjected to intense training designed to harden body, mind and soul against any/all demonic influences. The tattoo’s on their bodies are done with enchanted inks to give them additional protection. Their various weapons are designed and built with materials known for their effectiveness against demons.
