Welcome to The 2017 Original Character Tournament!"Holy Toledo! What a great name!"
I know, right?"What is this tournament?"
Why, this is a themed Speed Death Tournament
! That means one week rounds! How exciting! "A theme! What kind of theme?"
The best kind of theme! This is all about you taking that old character of yours that you have locked away deep, deep in the catacombs of your heart, and busting them out of prison! Take them into the fresh air and let’s see what you have! "So when you say old characters…"
I mean an old character! Not one you submitted to Void, mind you, but any old character that you’ve forgotten about from your past. Maybe they’re a dark secret from a Naruto RPG or maybe you just haven’t drawn them in a long time! Those characters are buried treasure in this tournament!"Wow! I’ve got just the character!"
Fantastic! To sign up with that character, you need to have a new design sheet AND proof of an old image of them
. Now, it doesn’t have to be an old design sheet necessarily, but an illustration, a shot, basically an image of the character created by your past self. If we can’t really tell the difference between your art now and your art then, that’s kind of a poor fit for the tournament!"An old design sheet? But really, I made this character a long time ago!"
You gotta show the pages! That is a requirement! Only old characters because this tournament is gonna be capped at 8 people so space is a premium! If you don’t have an old image, find another character!"You know, I do have that Naruto character I made when I was a literal babychild…"
That’s great! Super even! That kind of stuff is definitely within the theme of the tournament! But remember to divorce them from being just a fancharacter! Void is for Original Characters. They don’t need to be Goku’s boyfriend-dad anyways! I’m sure they’re a super character."Is there anything else I need?"
Well, I’d hope you’re registered to the site. If you got that out of the way, then not much else! You’re going to have to remember to submit your entry through the regular character creation. All you will need is a Design Sheet and a 50x50 Icon. Intro pages are not required for this tournament at all since these will all be death matches.
You may want to put your old design sheet somewhere in your submission. If you don’t submit a file with both old and new side-by-side, might I recommend in one of the Intro Page slots (if you don’t plan on giving us an intro story)?
At the very least, you have to post it with your new design sheet here when signing up, otherwise you won’t be counted for applying to the tournament and that would be sad!"What about in the comic proper? All I know about is the Light Speed Death Tournament!"
Unlike the LSDT, you have a week to do your comic and a week to vote, as usual. There is no page restrictions, so go as big or as small as you feel comfortable with. These are death matches, so your opponent must die. To that end, both you and your opponent’s characters gotta show up! (You don’t have to be the one to kill your opponent, of course.)
There will be only 8 slots
for this tournament due to time considerations! (Unless by some weird stroke we get LSDT numbers, in which case that may change. Keyword being may.)
As a result, people could be cut and you may not get in. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t sign up anyways if you’re interested! Don’t count yourself out immediately as if it’s a given! Join! We would love to have you!"What dates do I need to keep in mind?"Sign-ups Begin: Today, December 21st 2016!
Sign-ups End: Futuretimes, December 30th, 2016!
You: Sign-up TODAY!
That means we’re going to be battling starting the 1st of January
! Happy New Years! With 8 people
, that will be 3 rounds
! With that in mind, we should end sometime around February 12th – 14th
(depending on how the rounds get put up). This sign up isn't first come first serve, so join in!
So, without further ado…SIGN UP WHY DON’T YA!1.
