November is coming and that means it’s time for the 30 characters challenge again! What’s the 30 Characters Challenge you ask? in November 2009 comic creator Tyler James put out a challenge to create 30 new characters in 30 days. He invited anyone that wanted to join to participate on a blog site he created (30characters.wordpress.com). I was among those that participated and had a blast. I then took the challenge again last year at the awesome new site (www.30characters.com).
A year has come and it’s time for the 30 Characters challenge again. This time it looks like there will be over 300 participants. WOW! As an alumni of all the challenges I’m ready to jump in again. I’m getting ready to bring my A-Game this time! I have a better idea of how to approach the challenge. Last time around I submitted pencil character designs (3 were inked). I’m planning on inking and digitally coloring all of them this time. (It will be a test of my time management skills). I’ve seen my style change in the last few years. Leaning more to inking, so I’m excited to focus on finished colored designs this year.
All are invited to “Join the Challenge“, the registration deadline is Sunday, October 30th. And the characters will start going up on November 1st. Make sure to check it out!
Here’s a site Banner I created with one of my original characters from last years challenge! Check out my “Profile” page too! – SHAZAM!
