Hey all! I have very few characters and I'm looking for more, so I thought I would run a little contest to see if I could rustle up a few creative designs from people! I'm not looking for anything super specific but I do have a couple of general guidelines.
-Must be a new design, on original lines.
-The ref must contain a full body shot and a headshot at minimum; if design is non-symmetrical, you need to showcase both sides.
-There will be one first prize of $40.
-If I like more than one design, I may award a second and/or third prize OR I might just buy the character outright from the designer.
-Designs that don't win are fully resellable.
-I reserve the right to end this contest with no winner if I don't particularly fancy any of the designs offered.
-If you need an extension, feel free to ask; I'll most likely say yes!
-Ends on June 25th as of right now.
BREEDS I LIKE
-Irish Water Spaniel (!)
-Alaskan Klee Kai
-Catahoula Leopard Dog
-Great Dane (preferably with cropped ears)
I also like creative mixes AND more unusual breeds, even those not listed. Just be creative and come up with something you've never seen before!
-I prefer mainly natural designs with unnatural highlights OR natural-looking patterns in unnatural colors (i.e. purple merle or something)
-I also really like designs that are inspired by nature and other animals (i.e. an oryx-based design or a wood duck-based design).
-I lean towards simple but elegant designs, not something with a dozen colors and multiple patterns.
-Add accessories as you think they complement the design; one or two is good, but not a whole ton of bangles, piercings, or whatever else.
-Come up with a personality as you think fits the character and take full advantage of it. The character's pose(s) should reflect this.
Hope that sparks some people's interest! I look forward to seeing everyone's entries. Good luck!
