Hyena OC Design - Contest

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 5, 2012, 10:02 PM
:bulletblue:My Gallery:bulletblue:Points Commissions:bulletblue:"Betrothed" - My Lion King Comic:bulletblue:Adoptables:bulletblue:FAQ:bulletblue:

UPDATE:
The contest is officially over. Thank you to everyone who entered! :hug: I'll be announcing the winner(s) early next week at the absolute latest! :D



:star:A word about colors: I DON'T want these hyenas to share the same color scheme as the hyenas we see in TLK. I want them to have browns and tawny colors (like spotted hyenas in nature).

CONTEST OPEN!

Surprise! :la: I'm holding another contest! :D This time there will be only one winner for each category, but that winner (or winners) will get a very special prize! Read on to find out more. ;)

THEME & RULES

:bulletgreen:"Hyena OC Design":bulletgreen:

For those of you who've read my comic "Betrothed," you know there's a sequel in the works. :boogie: It's in pre-production now, and I'm in the process of finishing the script, creating characters, and doing concept art. I have just about everything I need, except two characters. I need a male and a female spotted hyena with natural colors. They should be designed how the Disney character design crew would create them - expressive faces, over-exaggerated features, etc. But they should look side-neutral as much as possible. Meaning they shouldn't look like good guys or bad guys (though leaning more toward the "good guy" style design).
They should not look very much at all like the hyenas we see in The Lion King.

:star:You needn't try to imitate my style, or Disney's style. Be original! And keep it simple.

Male Hyena guidelines:
:bulletblue:He must have natural colors. As in colors seen on spotted hyenas in nature. Not the grey hyenas from TLK.
:bulletblue:He is based on the character Colonel Jack O'Neill from Stargate: SG1 (portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson).
Video clip: youtu.be/csFZPxTwkuY?t=1m43s
:bulletblue:He's a tough cookie. Middle aged (40's/50's human years).
:bulletblue:He's sarcastic, but has an honest opinion about everyone and everything - that he's never afraid to express.
:bulletblue:He's a strong leader, even though the hyenas are a matriarical society, he holds his own against the tough girls and is mates with the matriarch of his clan.
:bulletblue:Scars are okay, but don't go over the top. (O'Neill has a little scar over his left eyebrow - you can use that.)

Female Hyena guidelines:
:bulletblue:She must have natural colors. As in colors seen on spotted hyenas in nature. Not the grey hyenas from TLK.
:bulletblue:She is feminine, but isn't afraid to get her paws dirty if the situation calls for it.
:bulletblue:She's sweet, but stern. Middle aged (40's/50's human years).
:bulletblue:She's truthful and confident, but tends to hold back information unless it's specifically asked for.
:bulletblue:She's a strong leader, though not particularly charismatic. She leaves the latter up to her husband (the male hyena based on O'Neill).
:bulletblue:Scars are okay, but don't go over the top.
RULES:
:bulletgreen:Only original designs created for this contest are allowed.
:bulletgreen:Bases and line-art (and anything else) that you didn't create are NOT allowed. The design must be made 100% by you.
:bulletgreen:You can enter as many times as you'd like!
:bulletgreen:Stick to the theme (of course!) and follow the guidelines as closely as possible
:bulletgreen:Have fun!


:star:Entries will be judged by me on artistic talent, creativity, overall character design quality, and originality.

No, no. I said "but" in a good way! :) I meant that you made your hyena unique, but at the same time it looks like how a TLK-style, naturally colored hyena would look. :aww: That's a good thing. :D

Just change her a tad to make her suit my style (and help her design follow the rules laid by the winning designs) and perhaps change her spots slightly. Nothing much at all. :aww:
