Hello everyone and welcome. In this contest you will develope a heroic comic character. The character should somehow relate to the graphics/multimedia world. For an extra challenge let's pretend this design is for a print job and there is a limit of how many colors you are able to use. Let's try to make these entries have only 5 colors. The contest will end in 3 weeks on the 19th of February. Feel free to post any questions you may have. Goodluck and have fun!

Deadline: 2.19.05

P.S This doesn't have to be related to designcontest.com (aka the logo), it can be, if you want...

So for my first contest...I guess I'll be the first to post. Just an extremely rough draft, saw the contest, got the idea in a snap so I thought I'd put him up and develop him further. No name yet (I guess you could apply anything simple - i.e. Multimedia Man or Designer Dude, etc) as he flies through media files with his trusty tablet/shield and pen/sword (?).

Eh...I'm a night owl, so instead of going to bed, I'm developing my hero.

Tic-tac-toe, three posts in a row (is this illegal under DC rules?) Anyway, he's now actually undergone the pen tool treatment and I will be updating him more, but this is it for now, I'm hittin' the sack.

Thanks, what do you think is off, if you could pin-point something, I could move it around. I'll try on my own but any further comments would be great.

EDIT: I see what's off, at least, some of what's off. I'm working on it.

From now on, I will just be modifying this post when I update since this will be the core structure of the final version. So here's what I have...

EDIT: Final!

Wow, nice. I tend to draw anime. I wonder if I'll have time to enter, though, it has been a long time since I CGed.

Thank you very much. I'm in a small bind with his shading, but I'll try and work it out.

Do the 5 colors we're allowed to use include black and white?

I think in this case it is 5 colors plus white (the absence of color). Correct me if I'm wrong though, but I believe you can choose to make the five colors whatever you'd like.
BAM! I'm here, are you?

Yah, I guess I'm a bit rusty on the the whole printing area of design...Anyhow let's not make things complicated...Don't worry about spot colours, just 5 colours! And geek if you want to do spot colors feel free to do that. :D
