My very own submission for that Scott Pilgrim Contest that seems to be all the rage. This here is "Noah Payton". I shall now give a brief history of him. Ready...Go.
Description: Noah dated Ramona back in college, both about 18 years of age. Noah was considered a huge gaming nerd, playing video games for days without end. He was such an experienced gamer that he could CREATE his own video games. After fed up about not being taken out on a date in a long time, Ramona finally broke up with Noah after Freshman Semester. Noah was devastated. It felt like Ramona ripped his heart out of his chest. Noah had spent the entire summer developing a video game that could have actual people live inside the game. One of them was Scott Pilgrim. The point of the game, to defeat 7 evil exes and try to win ramona's heart. Most subjects couldn't beat the first ex. Once finished creating the 7 evil exes in his game, Noah then created himself as a final boss. His features include creating or destroying any matter inside his game. He added a hole in his chest, shaped like an upside down heart, to add irony to his character (because he's nuts). Does Scott Pilgrim have a chance defeating Ramona's 8th evil ex...eh, probably. He's defeated all the others, right?
I might make a fan comic in the distant future if I win, to explain more of a back story. Hope Bryan doesn't plan to sue me.
Fun Facts: -Created entirely with Flash 8/CS5 -5 days to create this piece of work, including sketching -Had to read the books, watch the movie, and play the video game to make sure there wasn't any "holes" in my character's bio
I wanted to envision an overbearing, intimidating monster, and took inspiration from a mixture of carnivorous plants and insects.
I was aiming for a creature that would move in an almost unpredictable, erratic way and look really creepy when chasing after the player(s). You're not meant to be sure what the markings mean or even how it senses your presence. People fear the unknown and that's what I'm going for with this.
