Hey guys, I accidentally deleted the last copy of this (I'm an idiot), but I'm back! With points! Now, I will name honorable mentions and second and third places. Sad to say, you get nothing but the honor of being advertised by DA-Gamers. That should be enough (I hope. Thanks for joining!)

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Avalerion
By 1stawesome
Good concept and somewhat unused(-ish), but more could have been put into the character.

Scratch
By LordGojira
The main thing that killed this is being much like Godzilla cookie cutter. Good amount of info (if some a little obsolete), but it could be trimmed.

Wing Hummer
By AltairSky
A well developed character (again, a little bit crazy overboard with useless information, especially once you actually LEFT the character). I don't need to know sexuality and what he likes, I just want to know about the character. Keep that in mind, yeah?

Dexter "Tex" Darkflare
By CyberII
The character is basically Sam Vimes from the Discworld series, but flipped upside down and turned into a cynical criminal rather than a cynical police captain. The info provided requires people to have an intimate knowledge of your works, which is fine but bad for contests.

Topaz
By AzizlaSwiftwind
I saw at least two Skyrim based characters in this comp, but this one was rather more interesting (is it because I have a thing for mercenaries? The concept is neat.) Anyways, good but not good enough.

NOW THEN...

THIRD PLACE

The Shepherd

By MediatorIridescent
<da:thumb id="460876910"/>

A genuinely unique concept, but not nearly enough information given on the character. I suggest developing it more and trying to flesh out its story; its history must be interesting enough, why not start with that.

SECOND PLACE

Niisha of Secrets
da-gamers.deviantart.com/art/D…
By KomradApex
Deity Profile: Niisha of Secrets
Niisha of Secrets
Titles: Our Collected Hell, A River Running Backwards, Sanity’s Antithesis
Material Form: Niisha's material form is a column of translucent darkness, inside of which is the barely-visible shape of a humanoid figure. This is contained within an iron cage, which the figure inside writhes against in an apparent struggle to break free of its prison. With every thrash against the barrier a whisper and shout are both heard, the whisper carrying a secret and the shout trying to drown it out. Hovering above and below the pillar are twin pyramids. It is said that divided amongst the two, all the forgotten secrets of Therma’s universe is contained.
Spells: Rewire Thought Patterns, Invert Reality, Nullify Natural Law, Self-Fulfilling Prophecy, Against All Odds, The Ultimate Lie, Truth Delusion, Horror of Horrors, Unravel, You Don’t Want to Know, Mind Slitter, Blessing of the Madman, Fool, Upset the Vessel, Primordial Eruption, Pillars of Black Light, Forget, Se


You're my friend mate, and you're great at developing OCs, but this is something of an overused trope. And I have no idea what the picture with it is supposed to mean. However, enough information is given to suggest at unique and original concepts with just enough data to get a clear image in my head of what this being is. Well done as always.

Now then. This is my favorite one out of them all, and it IS wonderful and... well. I've never seen an OC outside of professional writing like it, have you?

FIRST PLACE

Pangaea
da-gamers.deviantart.com/art/O…
By DenaLee
OCT Underworld OC Ref Pangaea by DenaLee

This is much like a baby version of the Great A'tuin, which was based on the same myth as Pangaea. While based on myth, it is more original than most OCs I see come through this place daily, so it deserves a pat on the back. While the usage of this OC is unclear (a battle of some sort?), but it is truly a good OC concept, and that's what I want, OC concepts. Not artwork, because this was for the quality of the character, not what they look like.

CONGRATULATIONS WINNERS!
Update: Winners get thumbnails.

Sorry :/ I can go back through if you like? It was rather late and I was busy so... I didn't get around to doing with it all I had intended. Still, I will do so now. I will tell you, two of the three top pieces are written pieces, not visible artwork.

Well, I made honorable mention... that's the furthest I've ever gotten in any contest before :XD:. Info needs to be trimmed? Hell, I thought I didn't have enough :lol:. Just curious, where does 'Pokemon' fit in with Scratch? I never used Pokemon as inspiration at all.

The listed abilities mixed with a monster.

So... having biological abilities= Pokemon WTF?! . You do know that Godzilla and nearly every other creature from film or gaming has 'listed' biological abilities right? I guess by that logic, everyone stole from Pokemon WTF?! ? Look, I'm not trying to be rude here, I'm just trying to understand where this logic came from.

Look, sorry if I offended you so much. Would you rather I left it as undignified as a Godzilla cutout? *Sigh*

I'm not offended, just very confused.

Actually yes, at least the criticism would make sense :lol:.

Godzilla is basically a massive Pokemon. I dislike the idea of Pokemon in general and the games are boring and infantile, but Godzilla monsters are essentially Pokemon that I actually like. It makes sense, trust me.

I get what you're saying now :).

Just for accuracy's sake though... shouldn't it be the other way around since Godzilla existed long before Pokemon? Mr bean-smart by LordGojira

Hah, that's funny, while being a fan of Pratchett's works (already at the times the character was created) I hardly thought of him bearing any resemblance :) *although, I don't actually remember if we had the books featuring Sam Vimes already published here at the times I've been creating that project*

Ach, well. Your character is literally Sam Vimes with magic and a bad guy.

completely unintentional, I must say, still amusing though

I suppose. Thank you for participating nonetheless and, if it helps, I believe the other OCs were still a tad more creative. You'll get there though ^_^
