So last night, in a fit of fevered creativity I made this bug based character;
I really like the look and I am sure it has been inspired by a bunch of different looks I have seen over the years, but regardless this guy insisted on crawling out of my brain last night and wouldn't let me sleep until he did.
The problem is, I have no idea who he is, or what he does. After buzzing about my mind and finally crawling out that was it. Nothing else.
At a loss for the identity of this character and who he is, I decided that maybe it wasn't up to me to figure that out. So I decided to open it up to you all and why not make a contest out of it.
That contest being; come up with a name and background for this guy.
Who is he?
What does he do?
What is his story?
Is he a hero?
Is he a villain?
Does he walk the fine line between hero and villain?
You tell me. Contest deadline is Friday midnight PST.
The winner will have their idea presented, with full credit given, in an issue of "Zenith Comics Presents: Public Enemies" (I am targeting issue 2 since issue 1 is already underway).
Also the winner, and two runners-up, will receive a free copy of the pdf upon release!
I will post the winner and runners-up on Monday, March 22nd (1 week from today).
Also, please don't post your ideas here in the comments, send them to me as a message via the private message feature of Blogspot (click on my name and it should take you to a profile page where you can send me a message.
Good luck everyone!
Note: After speaking with a legally inclined friend of mine, I must also add the following for legal reasons; the character chosen as the winner will become the property of Andrew Collas Games Inc. and may not be published by any other company. I wish I didn't have to put this in, but the nature of our litigious society forces me to. Understand I am not trying to be a jerk, just have to cover my butt. I totally understand if anyone doesn't want to participate because of this.
