couple days guys!!
Yes, this that has the story created by me and OrchardOfApples is sill running, but before that we wanted to start little contest involving our comic. This story is about an upcoming nine-tailed king Kitsune named Ayumu, and his relationship with a three-tailed prostitute Kitsune named Kiara.
So we've decided to host a contest, both to bring in more readers and also because it's fun to see people's characters and interpretations!
What you need to do?Design character that fits into this universe as best as possible. Every entry that we like gets place in comic, no matter if you win or not. We need background characters here. Like example other prostitutes to show up with Kiara, servants and guards to palace. Those are just examples though, of course. But maybe it gives you an idea what we're looking for.
Since this society is build around how many tails each person has I'm giving you little info what each rank means really.
The tail ranks:
Peasants, Homeless, Lowest Of The Low, Jobless Most Often, Treated The Worst
Low Class, Beggars, Most Likely To Be Sold In Black Market As Slaves, Treated Very Little Better Than One-Tailed Kitsunes
Prostitutes, Sell-Outs, Servants & Maids
Farmers, Hard Workers, Just Below Middle Class
Middle Class, Small Business Owners
Doctors, Scientists, Lawyers, Known For Their Intellect In Business
Lords & Ladies, Distant From Most Higher Class Socialites, Not As Praised As Eight-Tailed Kitsunes, But Have A Good Living
High Class Lords & Ladies, Dukes & Duchesses, Closest To The Royal Familt
-Must Be Original
-No Nine-Tailed Kitsunes, Since Those Are Reserved For Only Us & Are Important To The Story Line
-May Submit 1-2 Different Ideas, But Only ONE Will Be Picked By You To Be Used As A Cameo, Whichever Is Yor Favorite
-Clothing Follows Something From Their Era (Traditional Japanese/Chinese Dress. Kimonos Most Often Worn, But Open To Other Styles Of Clothing, Of Course!)
-Please Provide A Description Of Your Character, Since We May Want To Know Their Occupation & Personality, & Of Course Gender! : )
Prizes:-ALL WHO ENTER EARN A CAMEO SCENE IN THE COMIC FEATURING THEIR DESIGNED CHARACTER, WHETHER YOU WIN OR NOT
Three Sketches Of Your Character By Me and OrchardOfApples
One Lined Full Body Drawing by Me and OrchardOfApples
One Fully Lined & Colored Full Body Drawingwith Background by Me and
So yes, you get prizes from both of us if you make it to Top 3!
There is no deadline yet, but we'll let you know it very soon so start working!
Since there had been some questions I'll give some clear up right here to some of them.
The haircolors usually work very human like. From brown to blond, ginger, black and so on. Those are the ones you most commonly see. The more rare and "exotic" ones are blue, lilac, white and bright red.
There is no racism that would include someone's skin color, since the tails tell your value, so there is just as much brown and white skinned in this society. Though in capital whites are bit more common I'd think
The way of clothing is very old fashioned. And by that I mean covering. Especially women should not show too much leg, shoulders or chest. Especially if they are high class. Showing skin like that is what prostitutes usually do.
There is no rules to the names. Most of the characters have kinda Asian styled names, like Ayumu, Fumiko, Kishiro, Hiro and so on. But there is also names like Kiara, Loskah, Sylvi and Ryon so having Asian style name is not needed if you don't want to.
