CHARACTER ENTRY ENDS AUGUST 31, 2012
=====1. The main thing that will be judged is whether you followed the instructions mentioned below. In sum: no overpowered characters.
2. Character fairness will be judged by *AquaWaters, =Dygee, and ~BlitzBolt. Each have their own diverse expectations of fairness, so no bias will be used in the selection of the participants for the contest.
3. This template must be uploadable on DA, following DA rules and regulations.
INSTRUCTIONS - Should be pretty straight-forward, but you never know!
===========Full Body Picture: Please make it as detailed as possible and in colour. Poses will not be judged. While artistic ability is not the factor of judgement, it does influence how well you can convey your character's design. Dolls, stickmen, or the use of another artist's drawing of your OC is allowed. So long as they're uploadable by DA standards.
Weapon/Accessories: A weapon must be indicated, otherwise the judges will assume they fight with their fists. Accessories, or detailed weapons, should be further explained in the artist comment.
Race: Be as creative as you want.
Class: Should indicate whether they are a fighter (uses weapons as their main attack), or mage (uses magic as their main attack). Consult the judges by commenting or noting should you have another class in mind, but we'll mainly enforce the fighter/mage category.
Elements: To maintain fairness, elemental alignments should be either-or. Therefore, you CANNOT have fire and Water as an element. However, you can have Water, Air, and psychic.
Status: DO NOT REPLICATE STATUS BARS. We have allowed 10 status bars there - place only those 10 under the categories:
Strength: Attack power
Defense: How well your OC can take hits
Agility: How fast your character is; how well they can dodge
Dexterity: Skill in performing tasks, especially with the use of their hands
Intelligence: OC's IQ - arguably a factor in the success rate of spells
Abilities: The main area of evaluation for fairness. All abilities should be fair – do not overpower your OC. You can elaborate the abilities in the artist comments. You can choose to have one, two, or three abilities.
Strengths and weaknesses: The secondary area evaluated for fairness. The character should have a fair share of strengths and weaknesses – that is, you cannot say that OC is smart, strong, mastery of magic, and sword master but he’s weak to spiders, pudding, cats, and body odor.
If you have any questions, you can ask them as a comment, or note one of the judges: *AquaWaters
, or ~BlitzBolt
