The more creative your entry (i.e. giving them a different outfit, imagining them into a scene, showing them interacting, etc.), the higher your chance of winning! Winter holiday-themed artworks are welcome though by no means necessary. You are also welcome to add other characters or your own OCs, if you find it fitting to do so!

Judging will be done by me, and my boyfriend (a non-dA member).

CHARACTER REFERENCES AND DESCRIPTIONS


PREMISE: These are characters for a horror/comedy/drama comic book series-type thing I have in the works. It's set in an isolated, suburban American city suddenly struck by a zombie epidemic. A pharmaceutical corporation, headquartered in the city, merges with the local government in order to combat this unexplained threat. They hire an unorthodox group of youths (my characters listed below) to take down and capture the dangerous zombies (who never stay dead for long!) when they appear.

:bulletblue: CELIA PORTER
always and never by monkette Celia by monkette Celia doodle by monkette $!@#$%! by monkette
Age 22. A recent college graduate who, before the zombie epidemic, was trying (rather unsuccessfully) to start a career as a screenwriter. Has a strong aesthetic for all things old-fashioned, beautiful, decadent, and dark. Celia is a self-identified misanthrope, bitingly witty, clever, introverted, pessimistic, and moody (though she also enjoys friendship more readily than she would like to admit). She joins the zombie-hunting team for money and creative inspiration. Has a crush on Gary, but it's mostly because of his good looks, suave demeanor, and nice clothing.

:bulletblue: DIANE BAILEY
Di by monkette Rainfall by monkette Di + zombie kitty by monkette
Age 18. Starts zombie hunting because she needs a job (and she can't leave the city anyways). Diane (or Di for short) is sweet, generous, upbeat, and a huge animal lover. She seeks harmony and always tries to act as a mediator. She also loves to garden and cook. Despite her soft, seemingly pacifist nature, she has little problem using violent weapons against the undead.

:bulletblue: PATRICIA PARK
Pat by monkette Un bar pour les morts by monkette patricia and cassius by monkette (on left)
Age 25. Isn't actually part of the zombie-hunting team; rather, she is the owner of and bartender at their favorite hang-out spot, the Mustard Seed Bar and Inn (also a gathering spot for the more benevolent zombies). Despite having a difficult and traumatizing childhood, Patricia was quick to mature and find her place in the world. Patricia is hard-working and assertive, often coming off as bossy. Although she can be brash and quick to anger, she is extremely loyal and dedicated to her group of friends and always looks after them.

:bulletblue: CASSIUS SLADE
Cass by monkette patricia and cassius by monkette (on right)
Age 25. Cassius always felt overshadowed and pushed around by his father and three older brothers. He joins the zombie-hunting team to finally make something of himself, and to find an outlet for his violent, angry impulses. Cassius is rebellious, hot-headed, and likes to appear tough (though he is secretly very self-conscious). He grew up with Patricia and has always been in love with her, though she never reciprocates his affections. Has something of a rivalry with Gary.

:bulletblue: GARY LEGASPI
Gary by monkette Booty Swing by monkette (on left)
Age 23. The wealthy son of the pharmaceutical CEO. Gary is demure and polite, though also extremely standoffish. He rarely reveals his feelings, thoughts, or motivations. Can come off as snobbish and self-centered. Fast and gifted with a handgun. Like Celia, he has a fondness for literature, fashion, and other such beautiful tastes.

All Good Children character portraits by monkette
For additional reference, here's some older portraits of my characters (Diane's name, as you can see, has been changed since then). Vincent and many of my other characters from this story aren't included in the contest due to my lack of finished drawings of them ^_^;

GOOD LUCK, AND HAVE LOTS OF FUN! :dance:
