It'd be interesting if any of the artists entering for the character design portion had a description from a writer to work off of. let the writers have some fun too. not saying writers should post random descriptions and let the artists pick but some of us artists will be doing character designs and i'm interested in working from a description if any writers want to hit me up. i'm not the greatest artist but it'd be fun. i'd suggest any other contestants open to it if they are lacking inspiration mention if they're up for the task.

@emocookie41

You're actually not that far off. I've been going back and forth on the idea of letting artist pick random descriptions. For example: If an artist picked #1, the artist can draw any character design they want but must include a teddy bear and a bow tie with the character. Something like that. ^^

I really like the idea that artists work from a pre-selected theme or description, but I'm not sold on the idea that each one should be unique. Having everybody working from a single theme or descriptor keeps all the contestants on equal footing while requiring an all-new creation from the artists, and I LOVE seeing the range of creativity that can come from numerous interpretations of a single idea.

Indeed. As I mentioned before, ideas are just being placed on the whiteboard as possiblities. Before I enforce anything, I want to make sure everyone is confortable with the idea first. ^^

I might start a poll to see what everyone who is participating thinks about pre-selected theme or description.
