Holiday Contest Rules: round 1 Halloween Theme

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 5:11 PM
  • Mood: Sociable
  • Reading: Steve-C2's short stories
  • Watching: Blue Exorcist



(Just a reminder)


I'm going to hold 3 consecutive contests based on the next 3 major holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas).





:star: Rules for each contest

1) Original/fan characters only. This means no official characters (like Sonic, Pikachu, Link, ect.). 

2) Has to be holiday themed. If your world doesn't have the actual holiday, then it's okay to incorporate something similar. (Like your world's take on the holiday.) If you do go this route, please give a little explanation of your holiday in the description. :)

3) Multiple submissions are allowed, however, only one can win. (Meaning you can't take 1st and 3rd, and such.) 

4) Submissions can be in the form of sketches, colored (traditional or digital), written, and/or comics. 

5) Advertise this journal, then give a link of your journal in the comments. (Currently, there is only a first place that will receive 350 :points:. If more people join, I'll add more places.)

6) No mature content. (Blood is allowed.)

7) Must be new content. (Draw something new. Since I know most of you, it won't be hard for me to notice. :XD:)






The first contest is Halloween Themed. It can be creepy, funny, or just plain amazing to look at. Leave an impression, make it memorable, and have fun.


:star: This contest starts now and ends at midnight (Central Timezone) on Halloween. :star:

OC Discussion with the Author, No. 1Author Appeals for Ideas from his Characters about a Contest

I had to admit a bit of worry about what I was about to do. Typically, my ideas tend to just flow. Stories take a direction and I assume the role of narrator to the events, not presuming to influence too much of the direction of events.
Now, however, is a bit different. I've created a couple of stories for October contests. The one for which I haven't written, is the one which was originally issued by another creator. I feel a bit remiss in not writing anything for it.
Yet still lacking any ideas, I found myself at a loss. So, I called a meeting of my characters. It was a stretch of my artistic bounds. Like other artists, I've imagined different scenarios and even played them out in my head. Of course, not everything makes the cut. This is the first time I've ever thought of calling a meeting and having their ideas, then putting that to paper.
I gathered Scarlet, Rebecca, Eric, Percy, Captain Johns, Lance, and

You Got Any Candy? by winter-orchid
:icondonuttreexd: DonutTreeXD 






Currently there is only a 1st place spot that will receive 350 :points: (per contest). If more participants arrive, I will add a 2nd (250 :points:) and maybe even a 3rd place (150 :points:).




Since I also wish to join, there will be a voting system after each contest. Once a contest ends, I will create a separate journal linking to each artist's work. Everyone will vote in the comments for their favorite (excluding their own). I will then tally the votes and announce the winner.




For those who would like to start working on the other contests early; Thanksgiving Theme is next. Again, it can be humorous, warm hearted, or anything else you want with your characters.
And since I know this time can be difficult to get around to doing art; Christmas Theme is last. 

However, do not post these early. I will make a new journal after each contest.





Feel free to ask any questions pertaining to the contest. :)

Birthday Wishes from Jestloo - 5/~/14 by Jestloo
Birthday Wishes from Jestloo - 5/~/14
Last summer I had bought and mailed a present to my real life, best friend, Jenny. She is also on DA. ---> :iconsolarazn: solarazn 

Anyway, I had drawn Jestloo here, holding her present. The reason the date is missing the day, is because I forgot to mark it somewhere for me before I sent him away with the present. :ohnoes: This is also the first sketch with one of my main characters that I have ever given away the physical copy of. I'm viciously attached to my drawings. I drew a picture for someone once, and gave them a printed copy, so I could keep the original. ^^; Anyway, I still can't quite believe that I gave him away. He even turned out very good!  And, it's Jestloo's! But, she's my childhood friend, and worth it. (Although, if I didn't have this great camera, this would not have happened. I need some way to see my picture. XD)

Also, no. I will never send you people any physical copies of my art. Not that this a problem. It just seems appropriate to say it now. ;p



Jestloo belongs to me. :iconjestloo: Jestloo

Remember this sketch? 
Sprit the Jest sketch 2/25/14 by Jestloo 

I had mentioned how I wanted to color it. In fact, it was almost completed two days later. However, like most of my work, I got bored/impatient and left it. Well, I was in the mood to color again and decided to finish it. :dummy:

Unlike most of the stuff I've done this year, this picture has a lot of work put into it. I really tried hard on the shading and lighting to get more of a solid look. I really love Spritloo's colors and design. And his glowing, smooth, glassy eyes were fun too. I have the whole thing recorded, so I'll post that later. However, it did have a weird period of blackness that I will have to edit out. 

I seriously need to color more pictures. I think I've been bogging myself down by worrying about the quality of my art (to my standards) and how few I've done compared to last year. I need to just have fun. I mean, that's the entire reason I do art. Because its fun.




Spritloo and Jestloo are one and the same character. Spritloo is actually who Jestloo normally is without possessing the Mirror Rod. He is an outcast of his tribe, the Pucknix. Spritloo prefers being the Guardian over his normal self. So, he tries extra hard to never lose possession of the Mirror Rod. 

Spritloo is a spirit being. He doesn't have a real physical body and is unable to die. (Well, there are a few dark means of destroying spirits, but typically, they can exist forever) As a spirit, Spritloo is not confined to the laws of the physical realm. He can ignor gravity and physics as well as ignor general bodily necessities like eating and breathing. Spirit beings can choose whether they want to be touched by fleshies or not. If so, they can feel physical. If not, then physical objects will pass through them. Generally, Pucknix are translucent in the physical world. Spritloo, however, has been in the sun for so long that he is no longer translucent. He still possesses all the qualities of a spirit, though, and will become momentarily see through if he uses them. Spirits also never physically tire and are unable to sleep. They can see without light, since they do not have physical eyes. Also, spirit beings speak directly to other's spirits. This allows them to communicate easily to anyone (specifically fleshies) without learning the language. Finally, spirit beings are unable to use any form of magic, because it requires life energy, which spirits do not possess. (Jestloo is able to use magic with the Mirror Rod due to Alabac's soul residing withing the weapon.)

Creation History of Major Luca Story Characters

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 21, 2014, 10:27 PM
  • Reading: Steve-C2's short stories
  • Watching: Star Trek: Next Generation



This is a journal showing a chronological history of main characters from the Luca Stories in the time they were created. These are their first sketches. The date of each image is shown in the titles. As all of these pictures are old, they are of much lower quality than my recent works. I will not be making any comment about the art, but will instead, be talking about the origin of each character. Also, this will only involve prominent characters that were created BEFORE I joined DeviantArt. 

Hope me you all enjoy~:heart:





Laiten 2006~

Laiten is the earliest character that still exists. (Meaning, I did draw many things before her, but I have not continued or given a purpose to any of them.) Although she has been around for a long time as my "doodle buddy," I actually only recently found a way to add her into the Luca Stories. Her ability to change colors came from the fact that early on, I couldn't figure out her color pallet. This also led to her ability to shape-shift.

Laiten FIRST 2006~ by Jestloo



Spritloo early 2007~

Spritloo was part of a series of Fakémon I created, and was actually the "evolved form" of something called a "Sprit." He was made to be "ghost type" which later was the reason he became a Spirit Being on Kotia. He was a very crazy character that could hardly speak in coherent sentences. As you can see, he's gotten much taller throughout the years. 

Spritloo FIRST 2007~ by Jestloo



Flitz early 2007~

Just like Spritloo, Flitz was a Fakémon. This time, he was a pre-evolved form and a fire type. When I first drew him, I thought he was ugly. I despised the character so much that I gave him to my younger brother. Later pictures of Flitz reflect the character my brother turned him into. If it wasn't for my brother, Flitz would have never seen the light of day again.

 Flitz FIRST 2007~ by Jestloo



Luca 3/~/07

I created Luca as a fusion between Lucario and Weavile (Pokémon) with some of my own twists. Luca Stories was not started at this time, however, my love of the character caused me to start roleplaying alone in my room as him. There were a lot of... Bizarre adventures, but I came up with most of his powers here. Rachel and Cyrus were also first created right after Luca. But, I couldn't draw humans at the time. So, those three were the first characters to coexist in one story.

Luca FIRST 3/~/07 by Jestloo



Tasha 7/8/07

She's the first of the group that finally started getting dated. I moved to Texas by this time too. Tasha was mostly created as a love interest at the time and soon after, became a means for me to give Luca children. (I treated her like a worthless baby making doll. I'm so sorry Tasha!) They weren't officially a married couple until sometime in 2009. My Father had asked about them being married, because I showed him a picture of Luca holding up baby Todd (which was redrawn and posted here). After that, I realized that I needed to marry them. Tasha got an overhaul of character development after that and has been growing since.

Tasha FIRST 7/8/07 by Jestloo



Alabac 10/5/07

Yep, Alabac was created extremely early on. However, he was originally made as an alternate form for a male Jinx (Pokémon). I really liked his design, though. So, he showed up in some of Luca's crazy adventures as a bad guy. Then, when I created the Mirror Rod, he somehow got involved with it and was shown stealing it in his next sketch. Then, I believe it was 2011 or 2012 that my brother and I resurrected him and brought new life into his character. Karab, Luca, Jestloo and the whole business with the partnership of the Motaukeh and the Guardian of the Mirror Rod was created by now. So, we decided it would be ironic to have Alabac as the first Guardian partnered with Karab. In that way there was always a fleshy and spirit being in the partnership.

Alabac FIRST 10/5/07 by Jestloo



Aaron 12/2/07

Technically not the first picture of this character design, however, the first was intended to be a creature. Instead, I turned it into a character shortly after. So, this is officially "Aaron's" first sketch. Interestingly enough, Kotia was not created yet, but we did create the Snowfoot at this point. They were later added into Kotia. At the time, Aaron was a very big character and we had a separate story with him. Now, it will be a side story to the main Luca Stories.

Aaron FIRST 12/2/07 by Jestloo



Todd 12/8/07

Yeah, I created Todd on my birthday. Todd caused us to have to give specific ages to our characters. He also started our hopping around on a timeline. Instead of playing with a character with indefinite amount of time, we suddenly had to add 8 years to Luca and Tasha. (Later we tried putting the kids at ten years later. We ended up liking their characters there and haven't went back since.) Todd's creation was for me to play around with the idea of Luca having kids. I'm currently working on Todd's character right now. I hope to bring him to the foreground again. (Tawny was created several months later, but I lost the notebook where her first sketch was in...)

Todd FIRST 12/8/07 by Jestloo



Rikky 1/23/08

Rikky was created as the rival of Aaron. Only, Rikky out performs Aaron in everything he does. He also started out as something of a friend to Aaron, but later I added more to his character and he lets evil defile his soul.

Rikky FIRST 1/23/08 by Jestloo



Zango 2/9/08

Finally one of the gods gets created. Thanks to a picture of a dragon ax that came in the mail, I created Zango. Zango's character hasn't fundamentally changed. He isn't a character that is meant to change throughout a story, so he just stays the same. The orb was to be some kind of show of his divine power.

Zango FIRSTS 2/9/08 by Jestloo



Ixx 2/10/08

Ixx was created the very next day. Suddenly having two gods on my hands that were created to be opposites, an idea for Luca's origin began to form in my mind. This origin also gave me a purpose for Luca and a reasonable explanation of his powers. At the same moment, the beginings of Kotia were born.

Ixx FIRST 2/10/08 by Jestloo



Niko 3/13/08

Niko was drawn after his creation in the story. I've been wanting to redraw this character. He has been one of my favorite Snowfoots. He is the top teacher of sword fighting skills in the Snowfoot tribe. Anyway, I love him.

Niko FIRST 3/13/08 by Jestloo



Daggertail 4/16/08

(Like many later characters, the Daggertail existed before their first sketch.) The Daggertails had been around pretty much since Aaron was created. They haven't fundamentally changed since their creation. However, two characters from the Daggertail, known as Goldtooth and Cisbo, have yet to be drawn and have extensive character development. (All of the Daggertail sketches were based off of Cisbo's basic design.)

Daggertail FIRST 4/16/08 by Jestloo


 
Lucas 4/25/08

Lucas' was first created as an evil clone of Luca. However, while we were waiting for him to grow in the test tube in the main story, I played with the story a bit on my own and ended up changing it (to the early dismay of my brothers), creating the Lucas you all now know and love. His purpose was going to be similar to Negro, except he's less powerful. So, I felt he was futile in his original design. Instead, I used him to bring some more humanity into Cyrus. :D

Lucas FIRST 4/25/08 by Jestloo



Mr. Benny Bunbun 7/24/08

My watchers should know how Benny was created, but I'll repeat. The character was created from a very simple, cheap, stuffed bunny we got one Easter. My youngest brother, Xian, creates interesting characters. So, he turned the little Easter bunny doll into a French terrorist/mercenary. XD We ended up having him show up in the Luca Stories.

Mr. Bunbun FIRST 7/24/08 by Jestloo



Luraino 4/20/09

(Luraino has been in the story way before I attempted to draw him.) Originally, Luraino was just a Lucario (Pokémon) early on before we decided to make everything our own and cut off or change all ties from other franchises. Since he was viewed as a Lucario for the longest time, his early designs looked very similar to the Pokémon. It took three more years before I finally created a design that we accepted and no longer looked anything like a Lucario.

Luraino FIRST 4/20/09 by Jestloo



Jestloo 11/10/09

(Look! His date counts down! :giggle:) That's right, Jestloo didn't come about till several years later. He was created on the day of the picture. His creation was really an upgrade of Spritloo's design. However, instead of completely replacing Spritloo, I came up with the Guardian of the Mirror Rod title and gave reason why the two were one and the same. I've loved Jestloo ever since.

Jestloo FIRST 11/10/09 by Jestloo



Karab-Amabo 10/~/10

(I have yet to finish a picture of just Karab.) Like all my human type characters, he was created in the story before the sketch. Karab was created a little bit after Barak Obama became president. Originally, Karab was gonna have some awesome long hair, but I drew him bald instead. XD

Karab-Amabo FIRST 10/~/10 by Jestloo



Darling 10/28/10

Darling was created about the same time that Karab was. I actually don't remember much about her begining. Besides her back story, her personality really hasn't changed...

Darling FIRST 10/28/10 by Jestloo



Sikkic 4/5/11

Although, technically a creature, Sikkic has become an important character in the Luca Stories. He's very useful to Luca in many of his adventures on Kotia. Originally, he had a different facial design than his current look. The current look came about when I was trying to draw him from the front. The face turned out different and I liked it. I still really like his old head too. What do you guys think? Sikkic was the last character I created before joining DA. (Not that I wasn't drawing much in between. I created lots of creatures and have books full of sketches, but these are the staple characters that have shown up in the main series.

Sikkic FIRST 4/5/11 by Jestloo







Well, that's all for now. Hope you enjoyed it. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. :) I was wondering, would it be better if I showed a current picture right after the originals for each character?


*Also, 9 days until the Halloween contest ends!*

Hi! My name is Alyssa. I'm a self-taught artist, and I've been drawing seriously since about 7th grade.

I have a wild imagination, and a love of story telling. I love drawing, and do it anytime I can. When I'm not drawing, I am having stories with my made up characters running through my head. I don't write down these stories as often as I should, cause I find it boring and difficult, and I'm a perfectionist. But for now I will draw about them. My dream is to one day write about and share my world and it's stories to everyone.

Please comment on my pics! I'd love advice, as well as just a good job! :D

Finally one of the gods gets created. Thanks to a picture of a dragon ax that came in the mail, I created Zango. Zango's character hasn't fundamentally changed. He isn't a character that is meant to change throughout a story, so he just stays the same. The orb was to be some kind of show of his divine power.

Ixx 2/10/08

Ixx was created the very next day. Suddenly having two gods on my hands that were created to be opposites, an idea for Luca's origin began to form in my mind. This origin also gave me a purpose for Luca and a reasonable explanation of his powers. At the same moment, the beginings of Kotia were born.

Niko 3/13/08

Niko was drawn after his creation in the story. I've been wanting to redraw this character. He has been one of my favorite Snowfoots. He is the top teacher of sword fighting skills in the Snowfoot tribe. Anyway, I love him.

Niko FIRST 3/13/08 by Jestloo



Daggertail 4/16/08

(Like many later characters, the Daggertail existed before their first sketch.) The Daggertails had been around pretty much since Aaron was created. They haven't fundamentally changed since their creation. However, two characters from the Daggertail, known as Goldtooth and Cisbo, have yet to be drawn and have extensive character development. (All of the Daggertail sketches were based off of Cisbo's basic design.)

Lucas 4/25/08

Lucas' was first created as an evil clone of Luca. However, while we were waiting for him to grow in the test tube in the main story, I played with the story a bit on my own and ended up changing it (to the early dismay of my brothers), creating the Lucas you all now know and love. His purpose was going to be similar to Negro, except he's less powerful. So, I felt he was futile in his original design. Instead, I used him to bring some more humanity into Cyrus. :D

Mr. Benny Bunbun 7/24/08

My watchers should know how Benny was created, but I'll repeat. The character was created from a very simple, cheap, stuffed bunny we got one Easter. My youngest brother, Xian, creates interesting characters. So, he turned the little Easter bunny doll into a French terrorist/mercenary. XD We ended up having him show up in the Luca Stories.

Mr. Bunbun FIRST 7/24/08 by Jestloo



Luraino 4/20/09

(Luraino has been in the story way before I attempted to draw him.) Originally, Luraino was just a Lucario (Pokémon) early on before we decided to make everything our own and cut off or change all ties from other franchises. Since he was viewed as a Lucario for the longest time, his early designs looked very similar to the Pokémon. It took three more years before I finally created a design that we accepted and no longer looked anything like a Lucario.

Jestloo 11/10/09

(Look! His date counts down! :giggle:) That's right, Jestloo didn't come about till several years later. He was created on the day of the picture. His creation was really an upgrade of Spritloo's design. However, instead of completely replacing Spritloo, I came up with the Guardian of the Mirror Rod title and gave reason why the two were one and the same. I've loved Jestloo ever since.

Karab-Amabo 10/~/10

(I have yet to finish a picture of just Karab.) Like all my human type characters, he was created in the story before the sketch. Karab was created a little bit after Barak Obama became president. Originally, Karab was gonna have some awesome long hair, but I drew him bald instead. XD

Karab-Amabo FIRST 10/~/10 by Jestloo



Darling 10/28/10

Darling was created about the same time that Karab was. I actually don't remember much about her begining. Besides her back story, her personality really hasn't changed...

Darling FIRST 10/28/10 by Jestloo



Sikkic 4/5/11

Although, technically a creature, Sikkic has become an important character in the Luca Stories. He's very useful to Luca in many of his adventures on Kotia. Originally, he had a different facial design than his current look. The current look came about when I was trying to draw him from the front. The face turned out different and I liked it. I still really like his old head too. What do you guys think? Sikkic was the last character I created before joining DA. (Not that I wasn't drawing much in between. I created lots of creatures and have books full of sketches, but these are the staple characters that have shown up in the main series.

Sikkic FIRST 4/5/11 by Jestloo







Well, that's all for now. Hope you enjoyed it. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. :) I was wondering, would it be better if I showed a current picture right after the originals for each character?

Say, did you get my message about the entry being my discussion, for the Halloween theme?  :)

Absolutely not.  I loathe the notion of it, and find it quite disgusting.

But I also found the puns online, and they were funny.  I had to let them run their course ...

(I figured you'd find it funny, heh.)

Did you hear his favorite music was hip-hop?

I suppose I get it if you didn't get that.

He couldn't stand it, either ...

I can't find an icon that looks like it's trying to look through the screen for the viewer, and then knock.

Kindly imagine such an image.

Thank you!

(Figure start with the heavy stuff, then work to the "candy".  ;))

Sweet!  I figured, "well, she's giving me the 'puppy dog' face in the OC discussion, I want to see what that looks like. :D

I really enjoy that comedy sketch.  Ever since I heard a pastor say, "Just because we speak the same language ..." I found that after, and I appreciate it on a whole new level.  :)

I'll comment on the piece later, when I have more time.

Aside from your thoughts on the recent stories? ;)

(Which, I would recommend you read Diner, then Journal of Last Person ..., then OC Discussion ...)

I was wondering if you could draw Scarlet with a puppy dog face.  :)

Just because we speak the same language, doesn't mean we always understand.  This, for example ...

Oh goodness! I can't seem to understand what you type lately! :iconfacepalmplz:

Now I really am surprised! (And after what you wrote in your OC story too! XD)
Alright, what is it you wanted to ask? :)
