Lot's of young'uns coming round these parts. Welcome to entervoid.com people born post 1990. My name is chunk and I shall now be your surrogate father. I'm going to be fatherly and give some advice to my new childrens.
I know you want to rush and submit a character as soon as possible, but...
REMEMBER THE THREE P'S WHEN DESIGNING/SUBMITTING CHARACTERS!
(which I just came up with)
Practise, Patience, Positivity
PRACTISE your art and drawing your character. The best way to get better with art is to practise. The best way to create a character is to draw your ideas over and over again constantly until you can draw your char spot on. You'll have more time with the char and they will probably evolve into better characters because of it. Please post your concepts in the INCUBATOR
for everyone to see and pass their opinions and offer new drawing techniques. You should also practise your sequentials with a focus on readablity and flow...then try doing some dynamic pannels.
PATIENCE is a virtue. Take your time and stop fidgeting. I know you want to go and rush to make a void character, but you'll have a monumentally better chance of having your character accepted if you take your time and draw to the best of your ability. And for god's sake read the submission standards before uploading anything. Remember when you do submit something, it isn't automatically accepted. The busy group that judges your acceptance may take awhile. Don't take it personal.
POSITIVITY will be the essential factor as to wether or not you are Void material. Having a character declined is not a bad thing. It doesn't mean you aren't liked. Don't think you're "not good enough". For some reason or another you did not meet everyones standards. It means that you'll have to bite your lip and try again. Take the advise of your Void peers on how to improve your submission for better chances. Stay positive!
Alright, now you know. This welcome message is entirely too long.
