The Appearance Weekly Challenge thread

Postby Makar17 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 10:59 pm

Now that most of us have FPW and we are making edits, I think it would be a good idea to have a weekly appearance only contest. The rules are these:

- A picture will be posted for reference. It can be anything, from an avocado to a oyster wearing a bandana, and anybody who is willing to participate makes an edit appearance based on that picture.
- The edit appearance picture is then posted in this thread and everybody will make TWO votes, for whatever edit they like. It can be their own edit and another one.
- The deadline for posting edits is friday and the voting takes place during the weekend. By Sunday night, whoever got more votes will be the week's winner and he/she will then post a picture for reference for the following week.

Since this is the first week, I'll post the first picture:

This was a great thread, and it never should have been buried.

I don't make original characters very often, though I've been thinking about doing some eventually - so screw it. This seems fun enough to justify giving it a crack.

Behold the Mexican luchadora "The Majestic" Tropical Lioness!

Tried to fit the image concept (a lion), while also working in as much of the color used in the image as I could without it looking completely terrible.

Nice.

My original idea was a standard tiger lucha setup with neon trim highlights, but I couldn't make the colors work to my liking. :?

Don't feel bad. I think I tried about 15 different color setups for the boots before I went "eh, white works." Haha.

There's quite a few colors to work in together, and some of them clash a bit. So it's a bit of a toughie.

Decided to take the concept for my entry, expand on it, and make it into an actual character.

Of course, in the interest of the challenge I've changed her overall look quite a bit - even with her fourth costume being a reference to the challenge the concept originated from.

So if anything, the thread inspired me to give an full blown original character a try. So thats nice.

This is totally going into my Kawaii promotion. Good thing we got new pounce moves last night.

She's slightly less neon, but I think overall that looks a bit better. Nice stuff.

Cool idea! Here's my submission, Leo Rave:

Not sure he'd really fit in with what else I have going on, but a fun exercise non the less.

Looks interesting. For some reason my headcannon is that his designs are airbrushed on his tights in a way similar to Rob Van Dam/Hiromu Takahashi's ring attire.

As far as him not fitting in with your other stuff goes ... hey, every promotion needs that weird out of place foreign guy.

Thanks! That airbrush effect was what I was going for. I saved him just in case I got bored or the itch to finish him up, he'd actually be a really fun tag team partner with one of my other guys.
