CONTEST RESULTS

Mon Apr 16, 2018, 6:28 AM by Looji:iconlooji:

thanks everyone for entering


There were a total of 45 entries, thanks to everyone who entered !
I had a hard time choosing, but before I announce the winner I'll give a link to all the lovely entries I recieved
looji.deviantart.com/favourite…
If you didn't win, you can do whatever you want with the design !

ON TO THE WINNER


Caspian by artofdroth
by artofdroth !
He has a very interesting design. His relation to my characters is one I like as well. I think the pirates crew can use a fishy friend !
And I know it's mainly about the design, but I just want to add that you have a lovely drawing style hehe

I already tried drawing him myself. I'm still looking for a way to draw merpeople myself, but this design surely helped. I also looked around for some color variations, so he would blend a little better with the rest. The first are the original colors ~
pretty merboi by Looji
Another thing to note is that in the original description of the entry, it was said that his name is Caspian but it wasn't sure yet. I may need to change his name, due to similarities to Captain (but I'm not sure yet). It was also mentioned that he would have a crush on one of the crew members, it wasn't mentioned which one, but I kinda like the idea, so I'll keep that in mind when he appears in the story.

YOUR PRICES


YOU CAN CHOOSE 3 OF THE FOLLOWING THINGS
- 1000 points
- A full body drawing
- 2 headshot drawings
- A half body drawing
- A re-design (full body)
- A custom design (full body)

I'll send you a note once you commented ~

last words


Thanks again so much for those who entered ! You guys did such a great job and it still amazes me that people out there are interested in my work like that. By either wanted to create a character that lives along side mine, or just entering hoping to win something that I made.

fun facts


RANKING OF ENTRIES PER CHARACTER
Note that I only counted actually relationships like friendships or boss, (basicly that got a little description as to why they had a relationship) and not ones who were simply listed as acquaintances without any explenation why.
1 HUAAN 8 entries
2 GERRET 6 entries
3 KENNY / CAPTAIN 5 entries each
4 HELMEN / JUNE / THE PRINCE / CHEE / NADI / ZERRA / KARO / KIT /MARABELL All 4 entries each
5 REM / LANÉ / SNOW / CHIVE / ELLANORA  each three entries
6 CABBY two entries

However, the whole pirate crew got listed as relationship 6 times, they basicly come in one package together so they were often listed together, but I didnt counted them for the ranking haha

I'm also very surprised that Huaan got so many entries ! If people are more interested in him, I make sure to draw him again soon :nod:

And unlike the last character contest I held, there weren't a lot of  entries for a love interest for Gerret
in previous contests there would be at least 10 to play that role. He still is the one with the most love interest entries though, together with Kenny and Helmen. Who all three had two entries for love interests. However I didn't count the Peppa references for Gerret, I can only assume they're a potential love interests, but nothing like that was actually mentioned. If I would count them, he would have four entries for love interests.

WORKING AT THE CASTLE 11 entries
LOVE INTERESTS 10 entries
FAMILY 9 entries
CHILDHOOD FRIENDS 6 entries
JOINED THE VFE MOVEMENT 3 entries

Older drawings of these characters also may hold wrong information and personalities. Everything in this journal is correct and anything I will mention and/or draw from now on 12/2/18 (twelfth of February) will be correct as well.

I don't have a book close by, I don't read a lot
What do you think about most?
Ideas of what I can draw/make
What does your latest text message from someone else say?
"N bril is een bril" dutch for "glasses are glasses". We were talking about the new TMNT designs and how Donnatello doesn't have glasses thankfully
Do you sleep with or without clothes on?
Mostly with a oversized shirt
 What’s your strangest talent?
I can look at two different directions with my eyes ??
 Ever had a poem or song written about you?

???

Waiting for the train to come, most of the time I travel by train
 Do you prefer to be behind the camera or in front of it?
I don't mind either
 Simple but extremely complex. Favorite band?
Im not really into music. I mean, I like listening to music, I do it as much as I can, also listening when Im out doing groceries or something. But I don't really have a passion for the people behind it? If I really have to say it it's Depeche Mode, but simply because few of my favourite songs are from them
 What was the last lie you told?
Honestly don't know

 What’s your biggest “what if”?
???
 Do you believe in ghosts? How about aliens?
I don't believe in ghosts. I do however believe in aliens. Not in a way that I think there are green men that fly in spaceships who wants to destroy us. But the universe is so big, there are living creatures out there somewhere. And that can also be just some bacteria or something.

 Most attractive singer of your opposite gender?
No answer haha
 To you, what is the meaning of life?
Do what you like without bothering others
 Define Art.
This still is always weird to me, in my language (dutch) we have to words for art, the word for drawings and people who do this, and the word for drawings/paintings/art that are sold.

CHARACTER DESIGN CONTEST - CLOSED

Thu Feb 15, 2018, 12:03 PM by Looji:iconlooji:
THIS IS CLOSED I'LL BE ANNOUNCING THE WINNER(S) SOON

Since I just re-started the narrative, and re-designed everyone, I thought this would be a perfect time for a character design contest !

HOW DO YOU ENTER ?


DESIGN A CHARACTER THAT HAS A CONNECTION TO ANY OF MY CHARACTERS
A connection can be anything from a friend to a lover to a neighbour they sometimes say "hi"  to
The relationship can also be with mulitple characters, like one characters neighbour but also the other characters ex

SINCE I JUST REWROTE A LOT OF STUFF MYSELF, YOU CAN ALSO BE AS FREE AS YOU WANT
You can give someone a sibling, even if they normally don't have one. Who knows, maybe it's so perfect that I will keep the idea ! You guys can give me a fresh look on what my characters need. You can give anyone a lover, you can give anyone a sibling or two, you can give anyone a new bff , you can add a pirate to the crew, you can add your character in someones tragic backstory (that you can make up yourself as well), really anything is allowed

UPLOAD YOUR ENTRY ON DEVIANTART AND GIVE THE INFO NEEDED FOR THE CHARACTER
Info like their name, age and most importantly their relation to (at least) one of my characters

THE DESIGN HAS TO BE AT LEAST HALF BODY AND COLORED
If you want to make more drawings of the character, you can do that in anyway you want, but I need at least one with color and a half body design. I know not everybody likes to do full bodies so that's why I also accept half bodies.

THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE WINNER
There is a change I really like two designs, and two will win, but thats not likely.

PRIZES


THE WINNER(S) CAN CHOOSE 3 OF THE FOLLOWING THINGS
- 1000 points
- A full body drawing
- 2 headshot drawings
- A half body drawing
- A re-design (full body)
- A custom design (full body)

some handy links and tips

Character designs by Looji
MAKE YOUR CHARACTER FIT THE SETTING
All my characters are placed in Gelea (more about that in the first journal linked), a warm fantasy-like kingdom. You won't win if your design has a character wearing jeans for example. Read the first journal linked for more info about who lives in Gelea.  For all the clothes designs I took inspiration of Arabian style

ONLY ELFS / HUMANS / CYCLOPS / NYMPHS / SATYRS / CENTAURS / MERPEOPLE LIVE IN GELEA
Eventhough its listed in the first linked journal, I still get this question. I know theres been a whole list for Gelea before, which had way more species, but it got too busy and hectic. These are all the species listed to live in Gelea, Nagas are not officially listed since most people don't even know they're in Gelea. So I highly recommand just doing one of the creatures above for the contest.

GELEAS HAIR SYSTEM
Gelea has a hair system, where women wear their hair a certain way depending on where they live (part of their culture), this is a very old reference but it goes something like this. However, getting this wrong is not a problem at all. If your design wins I will change the hair to the correct location so this is just a heads up.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A WATCHER TO ENTER THE CONTEST
I have no problem with people that don't watch me wanting to join the contest, go right ahead! You also don't have to share the contest, but it's appriciated.

READ EVERYTHING BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS

Please do this, that would help me out a lot. And I don't mean just this journal, also other journals I linked about Gelea.
Only the things I linked here are valid no other old journals or pictures, like I said, I rewrote everything.

HERE IS A MOODBOARD I MADE, FOR INSPIRATION
All pictures in this moodboard do not belong to me but to their respectfull owners. Sorry I can't give proper credit, most pictures are found on pinterest. Moodboard1

frequently asked questions


"CAN I ENTER WITH A CHARACTER I ALREADY OWN?"
No, the character design afterwards will be used by me, and it will no longer be your character if you could enter like that. And that's no good. If you have a character that maybe can be a friend of one of mines or something, you can always send me a message, who knows : )

"HOW MANY TIMES CAN I ENTER?"
You can enter as much as you like, no prob.

"I WANT TO MAKE A CHARACTER THAT HAS A CONNECTION TO A CHARACTER OF YOURS THAT'S NOT LINKED IN THE LINKS ABOVE, CAN I STILL DO THAT?"
I will only really use the characters above for a while, so I highly suggest using them for your character connection

"CAN I MAKE A CHARACTER THAT IS THE CHILD OF ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS?"
I would like to use the character right away, so it's better if the character can now already walk around. So if it's a really young child, go for it. But if you want to give someone a teenage kid while they're still in their 20s themself, it's not possible.

"CAN I DRAW THE CHARACTER DESIGN IM ENTERING WITH, WITH ONE OF THE CHARACTERS THEY HAVE A CONNECTION WITH?"
Yup, totaly fine ! Would be cool to see. You don't have a bigger change of winning because of this though.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK !
I try to answer them ASAP


DEADLINE

CONTEST ENDS ON 15TH OF APRIL 23:59 TIMEZONE +1
I won't accept anymore entries after the deadline. Not knowing what timezones are is not an excuse when you have acces to the internet.

BEFORE READING

I changed a lot from older personality sheets and overall story things. So if something is missing or wrong, it's probably scrapped or I want to re-write the story and it isn't revealed yet. Older drawings of these characters also may hold wrong information and personalities. Everything in this journal is correct and anything I will mention and/or draw from now on 12/2/18 (twelfth of February) will be correct as well.

Older drawings of these characters also may hold wrong information and personalities. Everything in this journal is correct and anything I will mention and/or draw from now on 12/2/18 (twelfth of February) will be correct as well.

OVERALL STORY


All characters come from Gelea, a kingdom containing 5 islands. Twedon / Dreehn / Viferon / Vifen / Enetan. All islands have their own leader with the King being the leader of Enetan (and the overall leader of the other 4). Gelea used to be an elf kingdom long time ago, but they later let other species in. Mostly humans came to life in Gelea but other species like Nymphs / Cyclops / Centaurs / Satyrs, there is also a big variation of merpeople in the waters of Gelea. This made Gelea a very crowded kingdom, which also rised the economy, making Gelea one of the richest kingdoms. Despite the diversity, the Royal family could only marry other elfs and mixed specie relationships were frowned upon for a long time. Nowadays relationships between elfs / humans / cyclops and satyrs / centaurs isn't a discrage anymore, but other combinations is not only a disgrace, it's also dangerous for the child that can come from this relationship. Children from these relationships are infertile. However, 99% of the time the women won't get pregnant or will get a miscarriage very early.
   A group called VFE (voice for equality), having members from all species except elfs, stood up in the kingdom. Going against the elfs being the leaders. Their leader challenged the only living royal family member, the crown prince, to a battle, hoping to take over the throne and let the kingdom be led by a non-elf. However before the day came, the crown prince dissapeared. He left behind a suicide note, but his body was never found. Some believe he was kidnapped, he ran-away or that he's actually dead. While this is going on, all the water traffic is forbidden, hoping either the prince or his kidnappers cannot leave the kingdom.
   The VFE tries to gain new members all over the kingdom and desperatly tries to find the prince. When they have enough members they hope to take over the throne again with an army. Here is a map of Gelea

RELATIONSHIP STATUS heterosexual  / still desperately loves Chive / single

No one knows she's a naga except her parents. When she was found she wanted to hide her tail by all cost, leaving her in a wheelchair, so no one will notice. Her parents give her everything and didn't know how to handle her self-hatred other by helping her hide it. They just want her to be happy, and when she met Chive they hoped for something more. Eventhough they were in love, Marabell was too afraid to even hold hands. They later parted because of this.

Coding by SimplySilent
And now that thing is broken.
it needs to be repaired, and that takes up to 3 to 5 weeks.
So I can't work on anything. I will be posting some art I've already made (especially for Vicboys)
and maybe some Ipad sketches I don't know.

This year is starting out great.



MY TABLET IS DOING WEIRD ?? SOLVED

Wed Jan 3, 2018, 9:27 AM
SOLVED
THANKS TO eight-legs
they said "the same thing was happening to me a couple of weeks ago ;o;
i fixed mine by going to the pen settings and turning off the double click distance
afterwards it was no longer a problem !"


I just installed the latest driver for my tablet, and now my strokes are really blocky and weird
Klotezooi by Looji
It's really hard to explain , since Im not a native English speaker
So I have no idea how to google this and seek for an answer

I already tried installing the driver again, and restarted my computer several times
but nothing is working , the lines are still weird and blocky
its doable with faces and clothes, but drawing hair with this is just really hard
(I also tried different brushes, they all do the same thing)
I use Paint tool SAI btw
edit I also have this problem in Photoshop , so its the tablet not the program

Does someone know the answer for this ? Or know how I can google it hahaha

thanks for reading !

CHARACTER DESIGN RESEARCH

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 23, 2017, 6:47 AM


I've made a journal some time ago, I asked if people could fill out a form for a paper I was writing for school.
You can still fill out that form here goo.gl/forms/k998l09OrHQFZXJ53

I still need to do a little bit more research so I have another quick form to fill out
If people could do this, would be amazing ! It'll help me out so much !

Im doing a paper on the workflow of creating characters
I want to research which way is the most effective
design > personality > backstory
personality > backstory > design
backstory > design > personality




Hope you have a nice day

VICBOYS CHARACTER DESIGN CONTEST CLOSED

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 25, 2017, 7:23 AM


CONTEST EXTENDED TO THIRD OF DECEMBER 23:59 (timezone +1)

24 HOURS TO GO

We are both out of town so might as well extend the contest untill we're back to judge entries
We wont accept any entries after the deadline, so heres a link to see what time it is timezone +1
missing the deadline because you don't know what timezones are is NOT an excuse when you have acces to the internet

A DESIGN CONTEST



 

Our dating sim, Vicboys, features a lot of background characters, and we need one more. The winning design will appear as an official background character in the game.

Your character will have

  • A name chosen by you
  • An official sprite, drawn by me
  • Some minor lines of dialogue

But they will not play a big part in the story or have a connection with any of the existing characters.

HOW TO ENTER

  • Make your design at least from the waist up. Full bodies are also allowed. A design includes colors. If your entry is traditional, and you don't have the right colors for your design, you can send a seperate picture with all the colors, digitally (just mention what color is for what part)
  • Upload your entry on Deviantart and mention your character’s name and :dev Looji: (without the space) in the description. Your entry will be confirmed once I comment "thanks for the entry". You are also free to leave a link below. You can also send an e-mail to sakubakachan@gmail.com

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • We won’t accept any submissions after 11:59 pm on December 3RD, 2017 - Central European Time [UTC + 1] 
  • Vicboys is set in Victorian England. So keep this in mind when you’re designing and naming your character. 
  • Anyone can enter, multiple times even. You don’t have to ask! 
  • We’ll accept digital AND traditional art. 
  • You don’t have to draw your character in the Vicboys style. So if you would like to use a (free) base, for example, that’s totally fine by us! It’s a DESIGN contest after all. 
  • If you win, that means we can use your character in our game. Our character artist will draw a sprite based on your design. (We’ll put your name in the credits, of course) But this character will remain yours.

Thanks for reading! It’s greatly appreciated if you could SHARE this contest : )

DTA WINNERS

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 19, 2017, 2:58 AM


First of all I wanna say, that I'm really liking the new format, where I just draw a bust
and have all the designs on one drawing, it makes it a little easier for me to edit descriptions. However, there were less entries then normally , I don't know if that has something to do with the new format or the designs just happen to be less popular
but here are the winners ~

CHARACTER RESEARCH PLEASE HELP ME OUT

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 9, 2017, 10:39 AM


HEYOO

I'm writing a paper for school about character design and I made a google form

I would love it if you could fill it out for me ! Just choose what character you like best and what character you dislike
all the instructions are in the form

thank you so much for reading and filling out the form if you did !


edit
This paper is about different methods to make characters (more forms to fill out will probably come soon). All characters were made with a certain method, and are like that for a reason. Its not about how to design characters. Thanks to everyone that takes their time to give me advice on how to design characters and how to improve the designs, but it's simply not needed right now. So no need to do that anymore please, thank you ~




Hope you have a nice day

REDESIGN RAFFLE

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 7, 2017, 4:34 AM


HAYA

I really wanted to do something with helping with desiging characters (I couldn't find a good word so I just named it redesign in the title sorry). I am thinking of making it a series on my youtube, where I would go look at characters and give my take on it.
I've seen things like this on youtube before, but from what i've seen (which isn't everything of course) it's just people who take pictures from the internet and make fun of it (calling it deviantart cringe or something) and just say why it's "bad".
I want to analyse characters, look at their personality as well, and give my take on the design (actually drawing out the design) and most importanly ; in no way make fun of the original design. Sometimes people just need a fresh look on their character to help them forward, and I would love to provide that. With, of course, the full approval of the owner of the character first.
I'm not the best one out there, far from, but I do spend my days studying colors and character designs , simply because it's my passion. I do not expect anyone to fully take over the design I provide, they can like their own original design better (they know the character better then me) or they make a combination of the two designs.

BUT BEFORE I DO THAT
I want to practice a little, and see if I can actually do this. So I want to do a little raffle.

WHAT DO YOU GOTTA DO ?
Comment below with a character reference and a little bit about their personality
and tell me why you feel you need a little bit of help with the design. You can enter mulitple characters if you want.
Only human-like characters please

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ONCE YOU ENTERED ?
I will pick out a few and will make a quick bust drawing (so no full bodies sorry)
important notice I would love to use the original reference, and put it next to my take on it. You will get full credit for your drawing.

IF I PICK YOUR DESIGN TO WORK WITH ; THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE A BAD DESIGN
Like said before, people sometimes need a little help, and I would love to provide that. I don't believe there are bad designs in this world, as long as you have fun with your character I believe it's great. But some people get stuck themselves and want something refreshing. Like said before as well, when I "redesign" your character, you do not have to take it as their new design. You are free to make a combination with your original design or don't do anything at all. It is not rude to not use my take on the design at all.

I AGAIN WANT TO MAKE IT VERY CLEAR THIS IS NOT TO MAKE FUN OF ANY DESIGNS OR TO SHOW THAT IM `REALLY GOOD` SINCE I DONT BELIEVE THAT. I JUST WANT TO PRACTICE AND IF I CAN DO THAT WITH PROVIDING SOME HELP TO SOME PEOPLE, THEN WHY NOT.

I really hope this text didn't sound stupid in any way haha I am not the best with words.


Hope you have a nice day
