It's officially here! The Illumi-Nerdi Artist Deathmatch 2.0!
As we've mentioned before, this contest doesn't feature overused Marvel and DC characters. This new contest features original characters from the Illumi-Nerdi in an attempt to see what artists can make of completely fresh, new personalities. This puts everyone on the same playing ground: completely in the dark (until the week of each round). Each combatant receives the descriptions of the characters that everyone will be constructing and the scenario they will be creating. There will be no use of colors for this contest (just as there weren't in the previous one), just pencils/inks. Unlike the last contest, this one is worth some serious cash dollars. $30 USD. That's 20 British Pounds! 216 Swedish Krona! 426 Mexican Pesos! 156,786 Zambian Kwacha! Submissions for Round 1 are due next Tuesday, June 12th, at 10 pm EST.
Powers: Wiccan, from the book (Necronomicon) that she finds in her attic.
Physical Characteristics: Height-5’4”, Weight-100, Hair- Long blonde. In normal Viola form, she is that beautiful. She is your standard cheerleader.. In Wiccan form she has black hair and extremely pale skin. She has a long black cloak and always carries a satchel which contains her book (the source of her power).
Personality: She seems to have the bitchy, won’t-give-you-the-time-of-day cheerleader attitude. But deep down (deep, deep down) she has a heart of gold. As the witch, she has a much harder skin and is sometimes prone to overuse her powers (as she has done being the most popular girl in school).
Weaknesses: Overuse of the book and her powers drive her made, as it did her grandmother.
Powers: Agility, extrasensory hearing, sight and smell.
Physical Characteristics: Matt is tall, handsome, well-built and has the square jaw of a movie star with none of the cockiness. Everything about his appearance forces you to like him.
Personality: He looks like your standard jock but his personality is the complete opposite. His interests are on the geeky side. He has a relaxed, fun attitude, sometimes taking his lack of seriousness too far.
Weakness: He as a strong need to belong, occasionally without consideration of right or wrong. Occasionally his feeling of abandonment can exceed his righteousness.
Here is the scene that the artists will be creating:
"Matt wearing his football jersey and athletic shorts, smiling as he leaps off a brick wall, dodging Viola’s attack, as it blasts into the wall next to him. Viola, pale skin, witch attire (black sweeping cloak, some artistic freedom regarding Viola’s getup). Satchel around her shoulder at her waist containing the book. Viola is levitating, shooting a spell at her boyfriend, Matt".
