Runner-Up Two: $10 paypal dollars or 800 DA points

What You Need To Do With Your Entry


- Create an original character. The character must be new and fresh, no already created oc's.

Theme: You can base the theme off of Chess (My adopted character): i.imgur.com/WeRPF.png

Note: Since I got asked this a couple of times, I'm going to post this here as well as in the FAQ to clear up any confusion.

Does my character have to look like Chess / and have the same personality?
No, you have complete freedom to use your imagination for your character. Chess is just an example of the kind of theme you can use. Your character doesn't have to look or act like Chess in any way. (=

Note: Winners of this contest will have their characters featured in my upcoming mini novel, Milo and Chess. They will play a main or secondary role in the story.

- Your original character can be either a female or male and is allowed to have animal ears / tails / wings, etc, but must be mostly human.

- Your character should have a name and have a brief description of their personality.

- All entries can be either digital or traditional and you can only have one entry.

- Entries can either by full bodies or waist up and must be in color. You may have a background, but it's not required.

- No bases, sorry. ;v;

- For any other questions please read the FAQ below or leave a comment or note me. If anyone would like to help me promote this contest, I'd be forever grateful. c:

- Please send all entries by note with Contest Entry in the subject.


Short Summary of Milo and Chess



Sepica, a world in everlasting moonlight and filled with mysteries, myths, and legends. It's only light source other than the two moons in the sky are the mysterious crystal trees that shine as if they are suns. These mysterious trees not only give off light, but they are what keeps the planet alive. If all were to go out, all is lost.

Once a year a Priestess from the Church of Heavenly Light is selected to go onto a long patronage accompanied by a Guardian to purify the trees in order to keep them alive, and thus, keep Sepica alive as well.

Follow Milo, a young Priestess as she heads out on her first patronage along with her Guardian, Chess; who is a bit more than she bargained for.

FAQ


What can I do with my character after the contest? Anything you want. Even though the winners will have their characters featured in my story, they may also do whatever they want with their oc. c:

Does my character have to look like Chess / and have the same personality?
No, you have complete freedom to use your imagination for your character. Chess is just an example of the kind of theme you can use. Your character doesn't have to look or act like Chess in any way. (=

All other questions asked about this contest will be posted here as I receive them, so please check here first to see if your question has already been answered.

Thank you and good luck everyone!~

Five days left?
No problem. *cracks knuckles*

Hope you won't mind them looking and seeming more 'realistic' in a way.
AKA they won't be spitting fire or anything.
