Contest 004 - Design Midorin!  
Following right after Design Kou-kun comes Design Midorin! Your task this time is to design a character who goes by the name of Midorin. Midorin's name is actually Midori, which means green, but the -n is added on for endearment. Midori~n. It kind of rolls off the tongue very easily IMO. :) Midorin's name uses the kanji 翠, which is usually pronounced as Sui. It's the first kanji for "emerald."

This will be open for four weeks and close on October 21. 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 entry with the most votes will become our official "Midorin." 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 Midorin!

Midorin's appearance
♥ Midorin's hair must be green and Midorin must wear predominantly green.
♥ Midorin must wear a bandanna and bracelets.
♥ Midorin must wear long socks and platform shoes. (shoes with very thick soles)
♥ Midorin must have leaves somewhere.

Other Guidelines
♥ Your art must feature Midorin 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 Midorin 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 October 21 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to comment below. Green is my favorite color, so I'm super excited to see what people come up with!

Are there any restrictions as to how/where the bandanna is worn?
lucathialucathia_rykatu on September 23rd, 2010 07:10 am (UTC)
Nope! Can be around the neck, waist, head, chin (lol), arms, hand, legs wherever and however you can think of~. Around the shoulders like a scarf would look pretty cool. :3

Nope! I hope I didn't accidentally use any gender pronouns in my description.

Is there a specific type of platform shoes that should be worn or can they be any kind? Because there are a loooot of types

They can be any kind as long as they have very thick soles. :3
