HOW ORIGINAL! IT'S THE 2017 ORIGINAL CHARACTER TOURNAMENT!

*
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!

RoflQu with Cruz



Cruz is a piñata, While not the kind you find in the party store, Cruz is a living piñata. His kind have existed much as they do for centuries within the Sierra Madre Occidental. Naturally reclusive, they had shied away from humans for obvious reasons. Cruz lived in peace with his family much as he always had, farming the land, collecting water from the rivers, and maintaining a comfortable existence.

Until that day, his home was ransacked and attacked by a small militia force. Piñata of all ages were torn from their homes. The village burned and broken, the humans left nothing for Cruz but a massacre. Candy littered the streets and the river ran rainbow with gumdrops. Those that weren’t slaughtered in cold blood were chained and locked away, taken from their homes.

Cruz was one of a handful who somehow escaped being taken by the militia. His family taken, his home destroyed, Cruz deviated from his village’s goal of healing and swore revenge. He began his pursuit of the monsters that tainted paradise and won’t rest until he eats the heart of every last one.
Like all piñatas, Cruz is full of candy. If cut, he will not bleed blood, but candy.  Life in the mountains has granted him both incredible strength and dexterity. He is able to masterfully wield his club with a precision and grace that is unexpected for such a weapon. He’s also extremely fast for such a large target.


And here's the old art, circa 2009!

73oss with Jackie!



There's a space between Here and There is a place in permanent flux. Some people are born with the ability to reach into this Negative Space and harness the unstable powers within. Jackson Meyer was one of these people, and spent the first half of his life dedicated to mastering this ability. It wasn't long until word got out and Jackie found himself picked up by the local crimelord; A fanatic of Negative Space. He was infamous for experimentation on Negative-Mediums, and never ceased to push the limits of Jackie's abilities.

The peak of which was the eventual sacrifice of his arms, trapping them in the Negative Space so that he could utilize the empty space they left behind to bring chunks of Negative matter into the physical plane. Over the years, the extended exposure to the strange laws of the Negative Space slowly altered his physical appearance into what it is now.

Currently, Jackie holds the proud title of being the only Medium that can actually fully enter into Negative Space and return; albeit only for short bursts. It is not a place for mankind to linger, nor is it a pleasant experience.

Naturally a bit of a jackass, Jackie currently acts as a go-to "kneecapper" for various, widespread gangs around the world.

He likes his job.

Here's his old ref!

Here he comes!



INFORMATION
NAME: Carnival Master
GENDER: Male(?)
HEIGHT: 15'0"
WEIGHT: Varies

BIO: A mysterious monster who arrived at VOID city. He now looks for souls to hunt to add to his beloved carnival he's building out of anything he comes across.

PERSONALITY
A psychopathic sadist who enjoys the suffering of the people he maims. The Carnival Master's also very persistent, and will do anything to get their souls. He'll also speak in rhymes sometimes, but he'll mostly do it if he gets the chance to kill something. He also hates cheaters, and he'll go more brutal on them.

ABILITIES:
THE BODY
It can stretch to great lengths and is very agile and quick. His body can also rotate around. His body can also be de-attached, and should his body parts become severed, they can still move and become reattached back where they belong. His head is also removable; if the head's removed, it can float around, watching their opponent's every move. His hands are huge, and they pack quite a wallop. He can also walk on walls and can bend his body at impossible positions, which provides usefulness to hide inside smaller spaces.

THE POWERS
Should he kill someone, he extracts their soul and traps them inside tickets he makes for his collection. He can create monsters and objects or weapons out of the very souls he has currently. The only way to free them is by either ripping the ticket before they're turned or destroy them if that happens. The monster forms vary on what kind of person or creature is, as long it's carnival-related. As for their objects/weapon forms... hope they're capable of speech...

THE FIGHTING
The Carnival Master's very skilled at anything carnival-related. And he can use them for his fighting ability. If the fighting gets rough, he can remove his head to gain advantage.

THE WEAKNESSES
Despite having powerful abilities, he can still get hurt; his body's skinny frame can be chopped easily, and his powers are limited only on the use of souls. His head's the very thing that has to be destroyed. If it gets destroyed, so will he.

OTHER
The Carnival Master's head is a hat with a face. Try not to wear his head. Trust me.

My very first OC was called Psychopathic Murderer and I would be totally entering him into this if all my art of him wasn't like, similarly to Laura, in a different country. I mean such a perfect fit for a SDT! :'(

And now for something a bit more fowl--


Zoey!


Zoey's appearances in my first grade journal were very sparse, but she's there.




While learning how to art, Zoey was my imaginary friend, a quiet companion when I lacked the social grace and aptitude to make any friends with the kids in class.  Her duties were needed only for a short time as I continued to focus on drawing to chase away loneliness, so she's been spending her time in retirement as an avid avian adventurer!  With appropriate clothes, a bag-of-holding many treasures, and her trusty sword and shield, Zoey is ready to face new obstacles and hopefully become a champion in this tournament!

THE GRAVEDIGGERS

Klippo is a self-proclaimed businessman who specializes in digging up dead people's stuff and selling it back to their spirits in the underworld. Kuto is a juvenile reaper who ran away from his responsibilities as a grim reaper and instead pals around with his old buddy Klippo, dodging demons and haggling prices.

Klippo is brash and out to make a buck, even if it means risking his, and Kuto's, neck's. On the flipside, Kuto is more shrewd and level headed than Klippo, but ironically, he's  a bit scared of the dead

Klippo's weapon of choice is an army surplus shovel with a serrated edge, but is useful more for clobbering than slicing. Kuto's scythe is a far more fearsome weapon, capable of reaping souls and opening portals to the land of the dead

here's the old pic, circa 2011.

Zita the Ragdoll



.



once upon a time, a happy gentle ragdoll lived in a peaceful town. She loved to help others repairs things thanks to her amazing stitching and sewing skills. Unfortunatly, the town's children were horrible with her and constantly tore her apart, forcing her to stitch herself up all the time. One day, a terrible accident occured, the schoolbus crashed in a ravine. Zita put herself back on her feet, and saw that most of the kids were lying around in pieces, most still alive. being the nice doll she was, she stuffed all the red and pink sticky parts inside the kids and sewed them shut.
the day after, everybody was happy: The parents were rid of their horrible kids, the legists were amazed by Zita's sticthing and the cute little Ragdoll found her call in life: repairing everything.

Powers Zita is a living ragdoll that can repair itself and bleed cotton. If damaged, she will scavenge materials to repair herself, and those materials will slowly change themselves into cotton and fabric. Zita can stitch, sew, and bind everything she can get her hands on. there is almost no boundaries to this power.  the red thread she use can only be cut by her and her alone. Her arms are made of a strange black fabric that seems to stretch to impossible lenghts and are near indestructible, and very strongs to boot.
Most disturbing fact about her is that she project some kind of eldritch field that slowly warp people's perception of her until they only see her as a cute harmless young girl, and will not even feel pain when she stitch them up. This field can be countered if you have prior knowneldge of her and her powers.

Personnality Zita is a happy being that has an obssession about repairing things. Be it a teddy bear with a tear, a broken relationship or simply helping people in general, and usually i harmful ways.
Zita seems incabable to willingly hurt people and inflicts pain on others, but never realize that her helping people often results in their demise more than their happyness. Zita likes befriending people, is receptive to what people say to her, but see living people around her as dolls. she absolutly doesn't understand the concept of death.

Weaknesses Naive, scatterbrained, easily lose her focus if distracted, and can be taken apart, even if she can repairs herself afterward. Fire seems to works wonders, while dampening her slow her down. She also want to learn things to better help people, and will try to copy what people do, but will often result in disaster.

Crude, brash and foul-mouthed, Samira is a rough delinquent with a sadistic and bloodthirsty heart. She has little interest in doing good and more into causing as much damage and attention as she can without a care for other people's well being. She holds a very disinterested and bored face with a taste of saying witty one-liners and just being a smartass in general.

Although her childhood was not a happy one, she refuses to use it as an excuse for her actions and will proudly take any consequences for her actions. Life is a thrill ride and should be spent making the most of it, which for Samira means ruining everyone's lives (also indulging in adult-like activities such as drinking and smoking).

She prefers being in her human form while doing mundane things but when it comes to causing trouble, she turns into her hyena form as, in her own words, "its easier to get the job done". She doesn't fear anyone and will treat anyone as inferior to her, especially men. The only people excluded from this is her mother and anyone who manages to overwhelm her.

She was originally a TAWOG OC via 2012 but she could pass off as a stand alone character. Left is a 2015 redraw if it counts.

For those of you submitting your characters, please include the original art for your characters if you have it. It's hard to tell which characters are for the tournament and which ones just happen to be new characters right now.

Putting it in the intro pages works right? Or does it have to be with the ref sheet

Nefas






Known as Nefas, once a demon hunter, now a creature consumed by evil. A man once respected as one of the 12 apostles of demon Hunters, lead by non other than the strongest Demon Hunter known to man. A man who wields the sword that traps all the demons he has killed, a demon sword known as Prison. The evil trapped within eventually corrupted the demon hunter once known as Judas, and so went on a rampage in which led him to betray the man known now as Jesus Christ Demon Hunter. Using every ounce of holy power he had, sealed the gates of hell and has imprisoned Judas in hell.  This led to Jesus' death, sacrificing himself for the better of man. Judas Trapped in hell has gone mad and has almost forgotten what it was like to be human, he named himself Nefas. Now that the seal on the gates have weakened, he shall break free and wonder the earth once more, finding himself in a large village called Void City. Having gone mad he hears his old friend Jesus from time to time trying to remind him of his human past while the sword continues to encourage him on his path of violence and destruction.   

Right so the purple is actually demon skin consuming his body
 which is as strong as Armor. The sword is pretty strong, cant be destroyed
but is heavy. It can shoot blast of demon waves when it is swung.
the chain can be extended and shortened at his will, also cant be broken.
Berserker mode is him losing himself to the sword but doesnt last long,
you can show berserker mode just by getting rid of his iris in his eyes
and having them glow red. Fighting is mostly him just swinging his sword.
