I am holding a contest!
As some of you may know, I am developing a comic called Evil You Know! It’s about angels! So, since I need to design a shitload of angels, I am holding a contest to design one for me, so I can do less work. (You can see some of EYK’s development on my blog here and here.)
- So! Here’s how it works.
You, the contestant, will draw or write the description of an angel, Fallen or Unfallen.
- Unfallen Angels:
Basically just people with wings. They come in every race and ethnicity. Their eyes can be any color with the exception of acid green. They have birdlike wings. They wear cool colors and simple robes and tend not to wear jewelery. Their armor is silver or gold.
- Fallen Angels:
Angels corrupted by Hell. In addition to the features of standard angels, they have hairless tails, horns and talons. Most of them have birdlike wings, but some have bat or moth wings. They wear ornate jewelery and sometimes pierce their horns and braid ornaments into their feathers. Their clothes are loose fitting for the heat. Their armor is brass or rusty purple. They may thread small sharp bits of metal in to their feathers so if somebody grabs them by the wings in combat, they come away with a cut up palm.
- Extra Information:
Nudity is not a taboo among angels, though angels who have larger breasts will often wear something for support, as will angels with penises. (Yes, they have genitals.)
As for weaponry, angels use any manner of non-firearm that is available. Unfallen favor simple and practical weapons, but the Fallen are pretty ostentacious and are perfectly willing to use ridiculous JRPG weapons.
- True Forms
Now for the fun part. In addition to designing the humanoid form of an angel, I would also like you to design a True Form.
True forms are not very practical and are usually horrible and monstrous multi-winged terrors. This is where you get in to Old Testament Angel Territory.
Every angel has a unique True Form, but no angel has more than 3 pairs of wings. Multiple eyes in weird places are common to true forms, as are wheels that spin and float behind them for no descernible reason. Sometimes their lower halves are made of fire. Sometimes they have snakes coming out of their backs! Try to have their humanoid form and True Form have some things in common, so you can tell they are the same being.
Feel free to come up with a backstory for your angel as well!
- The Point!
So, why should you do this? Well, for starters, you will get to see your angel in my comic, a thank-you and a link on the About page. Additionally, you will get a $50(USD) Amazon Gift Card! (or amazon.co.uk or amazon.ca in the equivalent amount)
WOW. What a FUCKIN DEAL!
- Wait, Helia, you bastard, I can’t art!
You are in luck! I am also accepting prose and written entries!
Art and Prose will be judged seperately and one from each group will recieve a prize, so don’t worry about competing. :> The entries will be judged on how creative the idea is, mostly, so even if you’re not confident, you should still try!
So, um, you can submit your… Submissions to
Please include your tumblr name in your email. You can only submit to one category and only one submission per person.
The winner will be announced March 31st!
