Subject title: Official Character Design Challenge #23 [Till Oct 22nd]

Official Character Design Challenge #23

The Character Design Challenge has been made to enhance the forum member's creative side of the brain and encourage them to improve. The challenge is made for any kind of skill level, anyone can participate. At the end of the challenge there will be a voting, and the winner receives a certain prize listed below. So go ahead and join, remember to read the challenge rules!

  • Accepted traditional and digital medium: pencils, ink & digital painting. The general design format can be turnarounds, illustrations, facial expression sheets, animations, etc.
  • You must associate your character design with at least one of the given tags(prompts). Associating with more prompts gives you better chances.
  • No NSFW material is allowed. That includes genitalia, extreme gore and torture.
  • The work must be started in between the starting and ending dates set for the challenge.
  • The picture submitted must be resized to 750-850px width(not height), preferably on IMGUR or any hosted site which does not delete images. Submitting 750-850px width image no longer grants you an 1 additional point in voting process, but makes your image more pleasant to scroll past for other browsers.
  • Only one submission is allowed per challenge. Anyone registered can participate. If you post a WIP, make sure to create a new post for your actual submission. You are allowed to comment and ask questions on this thread.
  • One character of focus per submission. That means the viewer's eye must only lead towards one specific character. [Last Updated 2016, September 15th]
