    So there this is site that brought an interesting idea lately. The challenge is you create one character design every day in the month of november, and post them if you like.

    I'm doing this but since I can't use papers and pencils due of my scannber being in a wreck, I'm stuck at MSPaint hell for the moment. Anyway, I thought some of you guys would be interested to do this.

    Here is the aforementioned site by the way: http://www.30characters.com/

    I'll join in on these shenanigans. I actually did one yesterday, but I'll probably polish it a bit more before posting.

    And I think November is national 'Too lazy to NaNoWriMo' month for those not participating in that.

    This is also true.

    But a whole month of no shaving, or a whole month of male pin ups?

    Well some of the NaNo novel rough drafts are then cleaned up in Dec. if the author wants to and a few have been published because of it. The one I know off-hand was 'Water for Elephants' about some circus whatever and it became a movie too. So yeah, you can become famous if you work hard and play your cards right, but I think most of the NaNo kids, like DA kids, think it will happen magically.

    Looks good man. It's got a nice silhouette. The light lilac might be a bit too feminine for an army general, even for a female. Then again, I'm not sure what the color scheme is for the nation/army/whatever. But I think if it were even just duller, more grey or something, it would speak more as general instead of princess in armor.

    It's a good piece to take to the next step though. I'd like to see the design polished.

    I was thinking so, but I was going off an older design I had done a few months ago. I left the colors as is for the value contrast they gave me, but I'll play around with it a bit more.

    After the 30 day challenge, I'll go back and render over some of the designs I liked.


    Thanks btw!

    You make me want to do this, but I'm so far behind haha. I like your linework and colour palette and how you draw faces. =) The general lady reminded me a bit of early Final Fantasy protagonist designs. =)

    I know, I'm starting to want to do this too.

    I really like the gypsy's pose and clothing design. The long piece of fabric looks kind of stiff, but overall it's a good concept. I'm impressed that you're keeping up with it.

    @Kitsune: Thanks a bunch! I plan on it.

    @Synthia: Oh man I'm so inspired by Yoshitaka Amano's work, he designed most of the early protagonists, and did concept art for earlier games. And thank you!

    @TickTock: You should join me. :V I've been tracking the 30 day challenge tag on tumblr, and like....all of the artists I follow that were supposed to keep up, have already missed 1 or 2 days.

    btw here's my day 1. I couldn't remember what I named the file. I drew it like...11pm Halloween night.
