Woooo! This was fun. I really liked that had to be to a set theme. It was challenging....

So basically... winner picks theme for next month? Like person drowning in a melted puddle of cheeze whiz while a creepy man in a black hood looks on? XD

Well, I am to cast the jugde on the best original character design contest!

These are the 4 awards

Most creative design.
Most creative background.
Best technical design.
Most exciting bio/personality/history for the main character.


USSRGirl

Design:The main character could be more highlighted to achieve better understanding of it, but you did it in a nice way.
Creative Background: I like the castle design and the area you choused to place it in. A nice classic structural way.
Technical design: A nice sketch which I suspect you made black using paint.
Bio/personality/history: Really well gone through, makes a comfortable read sympathetic of the submission.

Esoteric

Design: Very nicely highlighted, in the battle with flames around, creating a most intense battle scene quite successfully. The ladder pushing signaling superiority in a not to violent, but very successful way.
Creative background:AWARD! The strength, dynamic and extreme background is very well composed. Nice choice of castle design.
Technical design: AWARD! In my mind the superior winner of this area, you sure know how to create great images with those awesome skillz.
Bio/personality/history/: A nice history composed with the drawing.

Orenji

Design: Very nice in many ways, a successful highlight of the character and a very unique design.
Creative background: At the expense of highlighting you made the background a bit blurry, but you see it is a castle and nicely done ^^
Technical design: Very well, you show great composition in the way you created this ^^
Bio/history/personality: You sure added a lot to the character, an awesome read for many.

Nami

Design: With the character highlighted at the right side of the submission you get a clear view of what is going on. The text really helps the drawing in the way it gives a story easily recognizable to the eyes.
Creative background: Nicely highlighted, but perhaps a lack of features on the drawing because of the grass pretty much standing alone at the pictures. The text added a sense of future dynamics to the picture. Well done ^^
Technical design: A drawing who shows some composition in the way that the castle is a bit far away from the characters on a hill. Colors are nicely chosen.
Bio/history/personality: Ohhhhh, I like the way you have made the character so centered in a history, well done ^^

Fairyprincess90

Design: AWARD! Ohhh, nicely composed. It shows a clear sad face and she is retreating. Very well done it is such a nicely emotional picture.
Creative background: It has features and you composed this quite well. The features really strengthen the design. Well done ^^
Technical design: A nice drawing, I don’t see to many problems with it ^^
Bio/history/personality: It really helps the design. You have composed that really well.

Soul Alive

Design: The movement and the dynamics are really well made. If only she had a few soldiers or something pursuing her……. Well really nice ^^
Creative background: Nice type of castle, it adds to the image. I like the landscapes and the flames too ^^
Technical design: Hehe, really well done this ^^ You made the image quite cleanly and well worth a look with this.
Bio/history/personality:AWARD! *Applauds* Really creative AND original. This was a great read.

Warrior 4 Jesus.

Design: I like it, it really shows some nicely composed action and this really helped the image making it enjoyable considering that the main action is so well highlighted.
Creative background: The flames and the castle structure really made this a nice view. A well placed area for the action to take place. Well done ^^
Technical design: I like it, I am not sure what kind of program you used, but seeing the lines and such I think you have really put a great effort into this, well done!
Bio/history/personality: I like it, it really shows a great storyline for the picture ^^

So the winners of each category are

Design: Fairyprincess 90
Creative Background: Esoteric
Technical design: Esoteric
Bio/history/personality: Soul Alive

The winner of the September original character contest and the host for the October original character contest is………… Esoteric!!!!!!!

Chibiwolf454

Design: From the inside of the castle, nicely choosen and well done. Fairly well highlighted too ^^
Creative background: You see the intensity and what's going on, well done ^^.
Technical design: Fairly 2dimentional, but the window changes that, a nice color job and you are makeing great improvements^^
Bio/history/personality: I like it, pretty straight foreward and nicely done.
