This is a group to show the development and the behind the scenes of original characters, their stories and their world.
This is a group to get to know characters and the way they are developed, how they have changed from the original idea and how the ideas come to life.
This is a place for sketches, notes and WIP drawings, as well as finished works, of course.

Fan characters with their own concepts are also allowed.

Man, this was difficult!
I really REALLY love all three and wish all three could be winners, because you all are.


KattMcAdam : Story-of-Us contest submission by KattMcAdam
I really love the representation and the silhouette. It is what this group is about. All those hours, days, weeks, months and even years spent on developing good concepts, characters and stories, is spent in front of a computer, with a notebook, and/or drawings and sketches. The silhouette also makes this person anonymous and it could be anyone. However, I feel it's a bit monotone and maybe needed a little more spark to it. For this reason you did not make first place, but the margin between all of these were microscopical and I really had to become picky to choose which one.


Amaryllex : Story-Of-Us contest entry by Amaryllex
I cannot get over the simplicity and awesomeness of this icon. The unfinished sketches in a sketchbook with a pen and ink just waiting to be used really is the essence of this group. To show what isn't perfected yet and the work behind a character is what this group is about. I've been staring at this for ages and I love it to bits. Unfortunately this one didn't make first for one reason. You didn't make any sketches or parts of this yourself. Don't get me wrong here, it's an amazing icon and it is spot on to what this group is, and I do understand that using your own characters would seem a little advertising, but I had wished you would've made a random sketch yourself.


Therefore....

I have loved this since I first saw it. The icon itself is literally building a world from scratch! Showing each step of the process is really what this group is about and you nailed it. The fact that the character is faceless too can mean anyone, which includes everyone in this group.


So congratulations to the winner! :XD:
Just drop me a not or comment with what you want...:aww:

To all the participants, THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!! :tighthug:
It really means a lot and it really was a very close call between you. I had to consult help to choose and I argued for everyone to win and eventually came to a conclusion.

Again, thank you to all the members and all the participants...:aww:
I'm going to try to think of new contests and things we can do in this group to keep it active. If you have suggestions I'll be happy to hear them! :glomp:

That's all for now...:wave:

I know, but it isn't for only mice...:XD:
That just happened to be the people I invited to start off with... Hopefully there will be more and it will be a more diverse within species here...:aww:

But hey... I'm drawing foxes and dogs currently here...^^;

And no, this isn't a problem at all! :glomp:

Yeah, I know, I just noticed a theme. :XD:

I have non-humans I'll be drawing as well, just not at the moment. Actually, one is pretty dog-like, so we'll have two people drawing those! =)
