Additional Info

If you have suggestions for this contest, or want to be a sponsor and/or guest judge, I´d be happy if you contact me via discord (w0olf#9231) or Steemit-Chat!

So let´s start this now!

As there was a tie in voting the next challenge, I decided

This weeks theme is the Color Challenge:

The Color Challenge works like this:

I give you a colorsheme, and you design a Character based on this sheme.
You can darken/lighten the colors for shading and highlighting.
Extra colors
You are additionally allowed to use black for outlines and details,
some kind of red for the inner mouth and tounge and white for eyeballs and teeth.

It´s as easy as it sounds! ;)

Here are two examples:


This weeks color sheme


You can make up to three entrys. Please be sure to use every color of the given color sheme!
If you use traditional art for your entry, try to use the closest colors. Thats fine :)

So I hope you guys have as much fun as last week participating in this contest!
I´m really looking forward to your entries!!
Lets keep em coming ;D


If u have any question, feel free to ask in the comments. :)

Have a nice day and steem on!

I know it‘s late for the entry, but I wanted to share, what I started:)


He looks bear-y cool 8D

Haha thank you!

Nice!! Does he have a name?

I like to call him Jack ;)

Woah man!
Sweet doodle :D hahahaaa

I'm still curious to know what movie is going on... Thanks dude :p

Not too late at all ;) Nice entry!

so pretty ! ^_^

I think i did this wrong XD Might try again :/

Hmm.. a little too much colors! ;) But great piece anyways!! :D

Omg i have no idea how im gonna vote. :s

Hell yeah! This is an awesome entry @elliebong!
Thanks for participating! :D

Heyy Glad to participate! It was fun <3

Cool character design @elliebong!

Thank you! Yours too! I was like wow there's so much details and nice color blending xD

ooh she looks so awesome~

Thank you Nawa~ 😊

Uh yeah I definitely like it! Great entry! Thanks for participating! :)

My Entry:
Woohoo I actually did it, now I have to sleep, traveling tomorrow...

Hey all :)

Here is my entry:

Old school, pen and paper style :)
My post

Hello @w0lf and Steemian. may I kindly submit my entry:
this is "Bug Bushi"
hope you like it :)

Really nice one! :)

Ok i realized like 5 minutes ago that 8 pm UTC was 1 hour ago. I messed up. But i'm submitting it anyway :-D and yes i felt like drawing something very realistic.

You are still in time, it's 7:42pm UTC atm :)
That's a wonderful Illustration!!
But I'm afraid, for this specific competition it's not a valid entry :(
The idea is to stick with the given colorsheme when designing a new character (no additional colors, besides the extra colors described in the contest post). And not only the colorsheme is important, also the birth of your own character. The character should be the main thing of your drawing.
But as I said I really like your illustration, and I hope you will join in the fun in the next challenge.

But of course! I do it for fun and creativity, not for competition. (It just happened that i didn't feel like drawing something unrealistic!)

Hey, @w0olf Hoping my entry is still within the lines of the rules haha


Wow, that is amazing what you did with that tiny palette! :)

Thanks @sidekickmatt ! Took a lot of head cracking but it was fun xD

Ooooooohso good .


Here is my entry, it's very rushed because of pending holidays, but I figured I would at least submit something to support the contest. Thank you again for hosting and continuing it @w0olf
