Character Visual Design ContestHello Everyone!
Thank you for being interested in this little contest of mine. I'm not much of a host, but I'll try to be as good as I can! ^__^
Despite the fact I hate the term OC with a pink and purple passion (it sounds so childish to me!!), that is exactly what kind of contest this is. I have a list (and growing) of characters that I would like basic pictures of. The basic idea is a no-brainer: Pick some of them and draw them! This contest will end on July 5th, 2013(yes, after the 4th). That's pretty much the general idea... OTL" I FEEL SO LAME!
The style can be either anime/manga or realistic. I don't mind either one, but personally prefer somewhere in between. It's your idea and skill that will ultimately sway me.Please keep the submission to 4 max. This is regardless of whether you pick to submit to different characters or not. Actually, spreading your ideas out over all (eh most of) the characters will give you a better chance to
Now, the people!
Body Build: He is the closest I have to a tank-like character, so he is tall and large. Think Laxus from Fairy Tail... except not so muscular. Toren is naturally big-boned for the most part, but he's not the heavy warrior type.
Physical Age: Late 20s -Early 30s
Eye Description: Since he has some definite British blood in him, he has the large Caucasian eyes. They are gray-blue in color like this: [link]
Hair Description: His hair is straight for the most part (very slight flipping here and there is fine) and dark brown. Keep the length fairly short, please. Exact hairstyle is up to you guys.
Skintone: He's not a fan of the sun, so he's pale, but he naturally has tan skin. Just make it a light version.
Tattoos/Piercings: Nothing on this guy... just leave him be.
Best Asset: His smirk. He smirks instead of smiling (except in front of important people, like his little sister), since he's usually being a prick and teasing/insulting someone. Please note that it's lopsided as well as his grin... but that grin is a rarity, so don't worry about it.
Special Preferences: He generally acts like he doesn't give a damn and it shows in his appearance as well. Casual, distressed clothing, messy hair and a haphazard type of posture fit him well. He is secretly self-conscious (hence his jerkwad-ness in order to cover it up), so he commonly folds his arms or crosses his legs like someone who's trying to protect themselves. No size preference (aka half/full/bust) here.
Body Build: He is the smallest male character I have. He is on the short side and is a bit underweight, s making him thin and lacking well defined muscles is good.
Physical Age: Late Teen - Early 20s (no older than 22 in looks)
Eye Description: He is part Asian (maybe half Asian at the most), but it mostly shows in his face shape and body structure. His eyes are average Caucasian and are dark gray.
Hair Description: His hair is the usual straight, black, Asian hair. He wears it long around jaw-chin region. That's all that matters to me, so surprise me with the details! ^__^"
Skintone: Think Asian! That's all...
Tattoos/Piercings: He has a large tattoo on his left pec. It stretches from the bottom of his pec to his shoulder. It's mostly a random mess of tight, thorny swirls, so if you want to draw it, go ahead. As for piercings... none please.
Best Asset: Oddly enough, his voice is his best asset.... despite the fact he doesn't speak much. This doesn't help much in visuals... so there's nothing visually spectacular about him.
Special Preferences: Zaide is very quiet and standoffish. Paired with the black hair, he sounds like your typical emo kid, but he isn't. He dresses and acts normally other than that, so refrain from dressing him in black. As for pictures, I would actually like a couple small pictures of him (a few busts at different instances and maybe one half body works). Note: if you decide to make him smile, he tends to try to hide his face in comical fashions when he does that... like using his hair as a curtain.
Body Build: He is average in terms of height and size, but he is quite muscular because of what he choose for his career(s). Generally make a filled-out male with a healthy amount of muscle.
Physical Age: Mid 20s... ehh 23-26 region.
Eye Description: He has golden eyes... these are perfect: [link]
Hair Description: He has bright reddish/orange hair (more orange then red) that is straight and brushes the top of his shoulders, I may make exceptions, though, if it's interesting, so surprise me!
Skintone: He is in the sun quite a bit, so he has a healthy tan. ^__^
Tattoos/Piercings: He has scars, not tattoos (none of them are obvious, though... since they're on his back). If you wanna add some simple piercings, that's cool.
Best Asset: His eyes followed by a close follow-up of that crazy-ass hair. The duo together gives him a punch that makes him stand out even in anime! Just go crazy with it!
Special Preferences: Ares is a very active, wild child, so having him do something crazy or laughing his ass off will work. He's also a bit of a bad boy in terms of jesting, so flipping off the camera would work as well. The only time he isn't acting like he's a child is when he's concentrating... then he gets rather cold and serious. No size preference here.
Body Build: He is a little bit below average height, but it woukd only be obvious if he stood next to a normal guy. Since he's a mechanic, he does have his share of muscle, but it is lean and doesn't seriously show. Just don't think about it too much.
Physical Age: Late Teens- Early 20s
Eye Description: The only preferences I have is that he has the double eyelid version of the Asian eyes and thst his ayes are green.. His eyes are green... the rest doesn't matter.
Hair Description: He has black hair that is very short and spiky. If you can muster it, I'd like it very, very short in the back... like mere centimeters.
Skintone: You have free reign here… just remember he's Asian!
Best Asset: His body is actually his best asset.
Special Preferences: Vireo is a workaholic, so it'd be almost odd not to have him without a wrench in hand. I originally have him in a futuristic setting, so steampunk-style clothing would look good on him. Just keep him simple. Oh and don't forget the grime/oil! Full/half body is desired here!
Body Build: He has a tall and thin build, so you get the idea of no serious muscles. He is more of a scholar than a warrior.
Physical Age: He's the eldest one I have, so early 30s.
Eye Description: His eyes are violet/blue (think Tamaki Suoh in terms of color). Other than the color, have at it!
Hair Description: I'd personally prefer very light blonde. As for hairstyle, just go for it.
Skintone: Pale... he's the closest to albino <3
Tattoos/Piercings: I don't care, just make it tasteful. If he had tats, they'd most likely be tribal.
Best Asset: Eyes by a LONG shot! ^__^
Special Preferences: Uumm... for him I pretty much explained everything. For clothing, he is normally dressed, but has a weird habit of wearing cloaks (maybe because he was originally made for medieval era...?). In general, make him a happy little ball of sunshine ^__^. If you don't mind, I wouldn't mind a close-ish up of him… so half-bod to bust.
Body Build: Nuriel's physique is literally nothing special. He is average height and average weight without serious muscle tone. What little he has is natural. For the most part, you're free to play around here.
Physical Age: Mid 20s
Eye Description: All I ask is that they're black-brown and more serious-looking....
Hair Description: His hair is deep red, straight and should reach to at least his waist. I don't mind if it's longer. The only thing I ask when it comes to hairstyle is that you tie it back, but don't give him a Neji or Renji hairstyle… please.
Skintone: He is Indian (not Native American), he has darker skin.
Tattoos/Piercings: I actually think he'd look really good with some piercings… as for tattoos, okay just use moderation please! ^__^
Best Asset: Obviously his hair... how he loves his hair.
Special Preferences: He is a spitfire that is pretty high strung when insulted. He thinks of himself as a bit of a badass (despite the fact he isn't even close at times), so he tries to dress like one. He's a fan of chains and belts (kinky ;D no, not really). For the most part, I'm open with what you do to him.
Body Build: She's aversge height with a small figure. I don't want her to be exceptionally well-endowed, so keep her boyish and tiny...
Physical Age: Mid to Late 20s
Eye Description: She has very large and sweet eyes. Blue-green (not aqua, put in both colors) in color and natural makeup, she can look a little innocent here.
Hair Description: Her hair is an average brown and wavy. It reaches about mid back (maybe shorter no shorter than shoulders) and is usually tied back. She has a thing for undecorated hairpins.
Skintone: I don't really care....
Tattoos/Piercings: Her ears can be done..... but no more than twice. No tattoos.
Best Asset: Her smile. She has a very soft, warm smile thst she shows only to people she cares about....
Special Preferences: Ora is a very low-key girl. She doesn't like a large amount of attention and comes off as the shy girl, but she really isn't. She'll talk someone's ear off if they let her. She doesn't reslly put effort into her dress abd can be usually found in a simple shirt. The only thing she takes pride in is her hair. I would like a half-bod of her.
Body Build: She has quite the attractive build as some would say. She has a fair chest, perhaps a bit small, but a very ample backside. She can't stay still, so she's toned pretty much anywhere.
Physical Age: Late 20s
Eye Description. I don't really care... you can make them purple for all I care.
Hair Description: The woman is African, so she has the tight-curled hair. She can pull off roughly any color, but I want those spiral curls
Skintone: She's black... so yeah. Remember that black skin is darkness and saturation, not just dark.
Tattoos/Piercings: She'd definately do piercings. No tats.
Best Asset: Her butt and she knows it!
Special Preferences: She may be the most tomboyish girl on the planet... okay not quite. Being raised with only brothers, she talks, works and fights like a boy. She doesn't give a shit about makeup for the most part..... heck you'll be lucky if she'll comb her hair, but she will dress up on occasion... such as a night out. She loves torn up pants... which she'll wear a liiiittle bit too tight.
Body Build: For a girl, Kat is quite tall.... she's just a little shorter than Zaide. Once her height is done, though, the rest of her is average. Don't go crazy with the curves.
Physical Age: Late 20s
Eye Description: Now she can go two ways here. She can either have gold eyes like her little brother (Ares) or light brown. Either way you look at it, they are interesting just like his....
Hair Description: Katriss has long, curly blonde hair. I'd like it to be a honey tint and reach about her waist. Bangs are up to you guys!
Skintone: She has the same tone as her brother, isn't outside as much. Like his, but lighter.
Tattoos/Piercings: None, she can't stand pain.
Best Asset: It's a toss up between her eyes and hair.... so both I guess.
Special Preferences: Katriss is a bit of a bitch. Taking great pleasure in picking on her brother, she has mastered an angelic, but down jeering, smile. She likes to be beautiful, so she tries to dress quite well and in a very ladylike fashion. She usually likes bright colors, usually purples.
Okay, I think this will work. If I think of more, I'll add.
