2012 Returning Challenger: Jesse Kiefer

| October 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

Jesse Kiefer here at your disposal. Returning for a second year of 30characters! Last year I cut my teeth on this project with the idea in mind that I’d create characters for my webcomic projects (specifically Tank-Monkey), and while I did use a handful of the characters from last year most of them wound up being just for fun (30 is more than I thought, ha!). This year I’ve tinkered with some vlogging on YouTube where I’ve been coming up with some fun characters for a series of short webisodes that I’ve been collaborating on with a friend. Most of my time on these episodes has been spent as a green screened Hologram.

This year I’m not going to box myself into making characters for a specific project, but I do hope to come up with some characters for my vlog channel meaning some of my character studies might look like me in costume but I’ll try to vary the looks as much as I can (or as much as I can for a big hairy red-head).

2012 Challenger: Jess Kirby

This will be my third year and I’m looking forward to it. This year I’m going to do a duel challenge. Since I don’t do much digital art I’m going to do the Manga Studio 30 day free trial and make my characters using that. I expect them to look quite horrible in the beginning and hopefully I’ll improve by the end.

Not a self portrait, but close enough.

Hello everybody! I honestly don’t remember how I got here but the challenge looked so good I decided to give it a shot!

A bit about me. My name is Neptune Mentor (Neptunes) and I absolutely love concept art and character design in general.

Really excited about this and hope to make new friends along the way.


See you all in 2 days. GODSPEED everyone!



2012 Challenger: Marinks

Well hello there everyone haha! It’s so nice to finally do this…

So I’m Marinna and a senior in high school. I don’t usually find myself making new characters on my own, but that’s why I’m doing this. I’ve seen all the amazing work that’s come from this challenge for a few years now and I (hopefully) will be able to finish it too.

I enjoy working on my tablet and good ol’ photoshop, but nothing beats pencil and paper 😀 Let’s have a great and productive month. Woo!

sort of

You can also call me either Marinna or Marinks.

Here’s my tumblrrrrr/the drawing tag at least -linkaroo-

Heya eveyone!

I am new here my name is Britney Winn but, my pen name is Buritsu. I am a recent college graduate from Wisconsin and currently aspire to become a webcomic artist . . . one day. I found this event last year but by the time I got to it, it was Christmas time so I’m here now! Yay! The stuff you will see from me will be characters I had in my head for (hopefully) future comic projects I wish to do before the Grim Reaper comes knocking at my door. Genre will range from fantasy, sci-fi and whatever else. I look forward to posting and seeing what fellow participants will come up with. Good Luck Everyone!

Hello to the Character Challenge

| October 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

I’m happy to be a part of this challenge.  I’m using it mostly to stretch my creative abilities.  I’m not an artist by any stretch of the means.  At most, my style can be classifed as “cartoonish”.  :)  So I plan to use other media at my finger tips and see how far this story goes. 

I’m also hoping to get to know fellow creators and artists.  I look forward to seeing what each of you have created.  Thanks again for the oppurtunity.
