I have in my hand (ok, on another tab) the results of our Thorns OC contest!
To recap, the aim of this contest was to create a character design based on the world of Thorns, my online steam-era fantasy RPG. Entrants had to research the world and its races, fashions and cultures to create interesting and unique characters.
The mods and I have tabulated our favorite entries, and here they are!
Third prize goes to ~Dakotaa for her character Deidre Mungo!
I loved this design for its bright, happy colors, unique style and the NAME, which is awesome ("mungo" is a term of endearment meaning "dummy" in Tek). Her young witch character looks about ready to jump off the page and come to life. Her hair is amazing, and tattoos on kids? adorableeeee
Congrats ~Dakotaa! You've won a full body cel-shaded commission from ~MissusHow! Send her a note to claim your prize!
Second prize goes to ~carcadann for her character Fib Goodly!
We were all cracking up at this character. From his fixation with the derriere to his talisman collection to his unfortunate illiteracy, I think everyone fell in love with Fib a little bit. I would definitely love to see this guy bumming around Hollow Street begging for change and hitting on townies.
Congrats ~carcadann! You've won character artwork from ~AussieMum, ~unwanderinggirl and ~JTPepper09! Send them notes to claim your prizes!
First prize (drumroll plz) goes to........~coNstantine2530 for her character Chesko Gahlen! Big congratulations are in order!
There's so much to love about this design. ~coNstantine2530 really went above and beyond by detailing Chesko's belongings. The costume design is fantastic, with a really great color scheme; it reflects wick culture very effectively. Hair-wise, that style is really fantastic; we all loved the chops (a necessity for any self-respecting wick) and the little rabbit friend he carries with him. Personally I love the warm color scheme and the stinky boots (complete with encircling flies).
Congratulations ~coNstantine2530! You've won a full body, full color, cel-shaded drawing of your Thorns character by yours truly, plus a poster print of any of ~MyLaundryStinks's photos, a 125x125 avatar by !cheezopath, AND a full body full color character artwork from ~JTPepper09! Send these folks (and me) a note to claim your prizes!
Congratulations again to all the winners! I'm so pleased with the turnout this year, so I'm going to link to a few more of our favorites in the Honorable Mentions category:
Thanks for entering, guys! I hope you'll check out the game if you're interested in where all these crazy characters are coming from
