Contest 007 - Design Tobi-han!  
There were a few names I was tossing around for our character for brown, but in the end, I settled on "Tobi-han". Tobi-iro means "auburn". Tobi by itself is a type of hawk (that is brown). The -han suffix is the same as the -san suffix, except it's the Kansai-ben version. :3 This time, your task is to design Tobi-han, who comes from Osaka! Or at least, somewhere that's not from the same place as the rest because I'm not sure exactly where these characters are living. :) I will be taking submissions up until February 6th!

After submissions close, voting will be open for 1 week. I will have entries up in one post where people can place their vote. The submission with the most votes will become our official "Tobi-han." You must allow your art to be used in the TCG in graphics such as banners, icons, and cards. Be prepared to have your art featured as the model for future pics of Tobi-han!

Tobi-han's appearance
♠ Tobi-han's hair must be brown and Tobi-han must wear predominantly brown.
♠ Tobi-han must wear some sort of long jacket or coat.
♠ Tobi-han must have feathers somewhere (or even some kind of wings).
♠ Tobi-han must have an armband and goggles.

I ran out of ideas for shoes, so no shoe requirements this time! :')

Other guidelines
♠ Your art must feature Tobi-han from head to toe.
♠ Your art must be original and drawn by you!
♠ Drawings must be at least 600px wide and saved as a gif/png/jpg file. I will resize your image for voting, but I will also link your original and any extras you wish to include.
♠ Only one submission is allowed per member. Please do not send me variations. I will only take one submission. You are free to include other views of the character, but I will only display one view in the voting post. I will link the rest.
♠ Send your submissions in by email to rykatu[at]yahoo[dot]com as an attachment. Make sure to label the subject of the email with "Colors TCG Tobi-han submission - your name". Please include the name you use in the TCG since not all emails match up with names.
♠ Please do not post your art elsewhere until voting ends.
♠ The deadline is February 6 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to comment below. :D

Ohhh wow, I really want to enter this one ;_; It seems like such a fun, earthy picture... Not sure how Osaka-ish I can pull off, but I'll definitely go for a very different design!

I always have pictures forming in my mind too, but I so cannot get them down on paper. XDD
