Hey Loves! So, uh... I was hit by a wave of inspiration last night, and today at work my brain confirmed it today at work!

Do you like creating OCs but never really have a place to put them? Or they just end up getting lost in the archives?

Well I happen to put soo much thought in the main cast that sometimes my side characters are so thrown together that they just..... well I just don't do much with em. I think ALL characters should be well thought out and I have so much goin' on in my life I just don't have the energy for it all the time. SO! 

I'm already doing character CAMEOS... where I'll draw in your already established OCs as filler people scattered throughout the comic, but THIS is an opportunity to actually CREATE a character FOR the comic! DESIGN and PERSONALITY is all you (but you must follow the guidelines I will list below)! And you will be properly credited for the character whenever he or she is featured

What's the difference between this and the cameos? Well THESE characters you create will actually interact and be part of the story-- a small part, but you get the point. You're creating the character for this purpose and therefore you're giving me permission to put words in their mouth and draw them in the story... kind of in a sense giving them to me but I will credit you every page they're in (for the character), but you will have no ownership or partial ownership to the story itself :D

GUIDELINES

Human Form Appearance:
  • Must be a SERPENT, unless I say otherwise
  • Must have black eyes, and two venomous fangs  fav.me/d6bupv2
  • Clothing is simple.... very simple XD... for the serpent people
  • No super powers XD--- only toxic venom from their fangs... which everyone has :D
Serpent Form Appearance:
(Wouldn't be used very often if AT ALL as the Serpent Form has become rather taboo in their modern society.. but all well-rounded serpent characters should at least have one ;p)
  • Can be just about any color! Except red.... cuz that's Hizruk's color n he's special ;P
  • MALE hoods are up by the head, and FEMALE are right below
Examples:
Male----> Final- Serpent Form by HeSerpenty   FEMALE---->    Lonely Wanderer by HeSerpenty   (I'll draw an actual reference sheet :D)

General View of Hizruk:
  • May seem weird to even havta say this... but since Hizruk's grandfather is a household name, soooo is his (especially in the village he lives and the cities nearby).... so there won't be many people who just have NO idea who he is. 
  • All people really know is he's been in the dungeon for the last 10 years, but they don't know the true reason why-- only rumors... but they figure it was for a good reason so the general feelings towards him are disdain.... but that doesn't mean your characters HAVE to feel that way. 
  • People think he could be dangerous, are afraid and wary of him, buuut also like to challenge him for that very reason. 
  • The reason I say all this is because however you imagine your character's view and opinion of Hizruk will affect the interaction they have in the comic and how frequent it is! It is all about HIM afterall XD
Information about girls:
  • All the girls in the teenager age for right now are "outta town." In the nation all the girls get sent off to an island school where they get refined and trained to be good mates (really they're kinda bein' screened and judged by the Council for who's the best breeding XD)
  • If ya wanna create a younger girl around Hizruk's age just know THAT's the situation! N plan fer it ;P
-----------------------------------------------------------


I'll let you know when I have specific needs in the story... but go ahead and make whatever character you want! When I need him/her I will slap em' on in there... but in between pages I could always draw side comics with them and the cast! I think this will be fun! And it make it even more interesting I think for you to keep following the story!

If you wanna do this, draw up a character, develop them, and submit it to :iconsoo--fanclub:! Any other questions, please let me know! You must actually JOIN the group as a member for your character to qualify!  (if you actually like the comic then that shouldn't be a problem! :D. Fair request :D :D)

Is this still open..? I just suddenly had this idea of an OC while trying really hard to sleep last night.

Sure! It's always open for people who love the comic! Just as long as you know that depending on the kind of character will affect how much screen time he or she gets! But I always try to find  a way to include them as much as possible!

If you have any questions feel free to ask! If I have a need your character can fill I could use them more! :D

Yes, thanks! I'll go start with the sketch right away. This OC is actually itching to get out of my imagination and into paper since the moment I woke up this morning. ^_^

I want to make a character, but I need to know a few things.
1. The clothing looks kinda "old - time ish" right? (I feel like I should have asked this before I drew her... ^^;)
2. How long will the female characters be away if they were born the same year as Hizruk?
3. How rare would it be for someone outside of Hizruk's family to NOT hate him?
HeSerpenty's avatar
HeSerpentyHobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome!! :D :D 

1. Lol yes kinda old time-ish. I mean they don't have electricity or anythin like that. Just very simple! 
2. Weeeelll I'm super excited to get to the girls! But... let's see they probably won't come til about chapter 4 or 5.... so it depends on how fast I can produce these pages!
3. Lolol heck most people IN his family hate him too XD. But it's not impossible to come across decent people! Most people just don't TRUST him.... and there's hope he  can win some people over XD

Can't wait to seeee!!

One more question. What kinds of jobs would the women have after coming back?
HeSerpenty's avatar
HeSerpentyHobbyist Digital Artist
Well! the most likely job a woman would have is a shop-keeper-- more like booth keeper cuz this particular village has a buncha booths rather than shops XD.... or a waitress or bar-maid XD... womanly type jobs :D. It's one of those "women can't be in the army or do what men do" type places unfortunately :D
CHatterBOx010's avatar
CHatterBOx010Hobbyist Digital Artist
Okay. Good, that fits in with what I had planned for my ON :D
