It’s contest time again! Man, I haven’t held a contest in ages. Well, hopefully this will make up for it ‘cuz it’s gonna be a BIG one!! ‘Kay, how’s this for a contest? I’m gonna make a book, but this won’t be any ol’ book. Oh no, this book will be created by you guys! (it will be illustrated by me and the winners) See, I’m working on a short story that I hope to illustrate and have SELF-PUBLISHED on lulu.com or blurb.com. That’s where you come in! Contest participants will create a character for the story.
The character can be any fantasy creature of your choice:
Faery – self-explanatory; can be mischievous or benevolent
Goblin - wicked creatures that enjoy playing tricks on unsuspecting people
Sprite – tricky little buggers, they are the “Houdinis” of the faery world; more or less the “bad” faeries
Dwarf – self-explanatory; grumpy and reclusive creatures
Troll – fearsome ogres; dirty and brutal
Faun – woodland spirits that resemble human from the waist up, but resemble goats from the waist on down
Werewolf or Werecat – self-explanatory; can be drawn in human form and wolf/cat form
Shade – shadow creatures of my creation; they are smoky black with glowing red eyes, sharp claws, pointy ears; they feed on the darkness of human hearts/souls by entering their shadows.
Elf – self explanatory; be warned that there won't be too many openings for the elf characters so I don't want everyone creating elf people!!
ALSO IF THERE'S A CREATURE I DID NOT LIST THAT YOU WANT TO CREATE, THEN FEEL FREE TO PM ME ABOUT IT.
YOUR ENTRY DOES NOT HAVE TO BE COLORED, BUT IT IS RECOMMENDED.
I'M ALLOWING UP TO TWO ENTRIES PER PERSON!
DEADLINE WILL BE AUGUST 19, BUT I WILL EXTEND IT FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT. ^^

The variety of characters you create, will determine how many winners there will be. But all first place winners will have their character(s) featured in the manga.
As for other participants whose characters might not make it in the story, I will try to draw you a pic of your choice. (Depending on how many entries there are, because a lot of entries will probably have a spot in the manga.)
The gauntlet has been thrown! Will you accept the challenge?
