This is a design challenge. READ CAREFULLY!
Design a character or your own pre-existing (and incorporate said) character with a lantern.
Primarily, the main objective is to incorporate a lantern into creation and design.
Character presentation is equally important!
Lanterns vary in shape, size, color, (realistically) can be made from a variety of materials: metal, glass, and paper. Lanterns are powered by electricity, oils, batteries, or hand-cranks.
In a more fantasy environment, anything goes. Anything. Seriously.
-Follow TheO's rules, of course.
-Two Entries Only
-Medium doesn't matter [Traditional. Digital.]
-Don't submit a scribble. I want to see neat and tidy entries.
-Do not be lazy! You're submitting art for all to see!
-Color is strongly preferred
-A background is NOT needed, but always appreciated.
 I'm interested in what kind of ideas you come up with.
- Have fun! And don't be afraid to do something with a modern twist. Otherwise, FANTASY!
Need an idea of where to start?
[I would start with Google Images...]
- Paper Lanterns
- Metal Lantern
[even the old vintage lanterns can inspire cool characters]
- Glass Lantern [glass ornaments too]
- Hanging Lamps
[Ceiling lights/lamps. I've found several that would make interesting lanterns]
- Oil Lamps
- Lava lamps?
- Whatever you come up with that can somehow work....somehow...
.....anything lamp related on a stick. Sticks are cool.
Let us know where you found your inspiration, if possible!
I do plan to do separate styles for each 'placing' winner. So, yeah, there's gonna be a 1st place and so on.
-In otherwords, to be announced.
The three winners [I will determine what exactly I'll offer later] may request a drawing of their OC
I wanted to post this sooner, I can't let this drag into September. It's a weird challenge, but I'm curious to see what the world comes up with.
