So as you recall, there was a tales of Dikuda OC Contest! We have the rankings!
It was hard for
and I to judge everyone's pieces and order them as such, it was an honor to get all of these entries.--What We Used to Judge--
1. What inspired their design (like Krrah is a microraptor and human)
2. Fasion Design (how well the clothes are designed to match the character)
3. Personality (how the personality meshes with the design)
4. Effort (How much effort was put into the designs, stories, etc.)
5. Originality (This is an ORIGINAL Character contest after all)
So I'm going to give a review of the top five with the highest scores as for reasons why they got the scores that they got!
#1 Judge Review
Zeta is many things. She helps with the Smite Comic Translation uploads, she mods our stream channels, she delivers patch notes in out Smite-Club group, and more, but none of which affected our decision. A platypus is an animal rarely chosen to be a "cool" or "awesome" and Zeta took the opportunity to take platypi's nocturnal functions and force him to fit into regular day school. He's no good at combat, he's slow, he's smart, but his scores aren't perfect cause he falls asleep. He's goofy and adorable. Very unique with the entries.
#2 Judge Review
Lyndonium has been adamant and assertive to try to enter as many of our contests as possible and has done well. He submitted multiple characters, but out of all of them, Jian is our favorite. She was very close to being kicked down of rankings but her story maintained her to be just under an uber-tiered character which made her fit snuggly into the ranking. Originally, we thought she was a male, but reading the story and finding out she was a tomboyish-female added charm to this character, and her skills make her a nice asset to a gate.

JoChao has been contributing a lot in our projects recently, this contest being no different. He was also one of the people contributing to the prize pool! Why he joined and what he'll receive, NO ONE KNOWS...yet. But this character was very unique in the fact that this character is a female fish! An interestingly designed bow, and linked in his description is a picture of her in her formal attire (which is quite graceful). With a tiny description and a well laid out character sheet that's mostly colored, this character design is both unique and well thought out.
Artboy has been a someone that has been drawing in a traditional style for a long time and strives to draw as much as possible. He's drawn a lot of Tales of Dikuda fanart, and here he is drawing for the contest! I like The concept art for the twins. It's very duality based which is something I know
likes a lot. Light and dark, aggressive and passive, weak and strong. Polar opposites that are still one. I like the additional drawings around them showing some details about the characters and we liked the detailed backgrounds!
For those that join my stream or Bleubear's stream, powsoldier is also known as Forest! With this character, we loved the character design. We think the character looked cool, we love the design of the hat and scarf with teeth so simulate an open crocodile jaw. Originally, we didn't like the aggressive personality too much as the guards of Dikuda had to go through a psychological evaluation before joining which made it very hard for her to fit in with the story, but then the last half of the story made her much more balanced as she's not being aggressive because she likes it, but she's trying to change.
Shout outs to the other people that entered the contest! Check out their stuff and watch them! Draw with them too! Be friends, be awesome together 8D
and I will be noting you all individually and in order (since the rankings from top to bottom choose the from the prize pool before the next person) so please be patient!
Thank you all, congratulations, and have an awesome day!
