While the winner is away he passed the contest back to me and told me what he was thinking.. He wanted everyone to know he appreciated the votes received, and to start off this contest with a fire based character.
So not many rules to this one..
Make an original comic character using your imagination.
Test your skill at drawing fire based powers.
It can be any species, any gender, and a hero, villain, or neutral character.
Entries are due by Monday the 8th.

Here is mine and his name is hothead and he can control fire and when he is controlling the fire the more annoyed he gets the more burning hot his fire gets and gets bigger and bigger.

Phire Mistress
She holds the Staff of Fire that creates her fire clothing... yes! She is a bald chick with no clothes except her boots if she ain't using her staff.

very nice work ice-very nice figure drawing and design(really digging the third eye). well, here is my oc-the match. a little setup is in order: she was an assistant to an assistant editor at people magazine and was one day assigned to cover a jonas bros outdoor concert. things soon went downhill(7 bucks for a diet coke?), she was extremely concerned about sunburn and bought some suntan lotion from a vendor...little did she know that the spf 420 she purchased was very experimental. she started feeling a bit dizzy and was singing a few blues traveller songs when a gaggle of teenage girls bumped her into a grill where a box of matches spilled on her head-interacting with the fumes from the chemicals they bonded to her head creating a match like(ok a match) coating on her head.

notes-she still wears the charred remains of a dress shirt and her panties(the only items that survived the terrific chemical mix)
further notes-she can light the match by striking her head on the ground...as illustrated in the action sequence.
furtherest notes-she still likes a couple of jonas bros songs

Foxfire, a pyrokinetic who favors concentrating his flames out of his fingertips to form rapier-like needles. Also clad in fire-powered fencing armor. His fencing style somewhat focuses on counters.

Sorry, I was too scared to touch the shading on this one.

Here's mine:

Ember Soldier.....
She's a medievel soldier (sort of a Mulan story went in and disgsied herself as a man)
She faced off an evil  sorcerer that cursed her with the forever pain of feeling burn.... She cannot be hurt by fire physically but can feel the pain.... The sorceror went off and cursed many others and she decided to fend for the inicent and those who called themselves allies to this sorceror but forever feeling the pain.... she took away her disguise and became the Ember Soldier.....

I don't have a scanner so it's a little dark..... I I find a way to scan it before the deadline I'll post it!

so the story so far-----fire god plus crime against humanity equals inprisonment foever in magic armour

note--fire hair,beard also fire leaking out of his left elbow joint and collar and the double cresent moon is a seal that keeps his godly powers in a dorment state



sorry guys this is the best i could come up with in such short time

So maybe it was stupidity or just bravery, but I did tried to draw something! And even posted here!

The drawing may defies your definition of perspective, shapes and shadows. So please use your imagination.

Name: Stuart Lee

Setup: An Eurasian superhero trapped living in a broken reality. In the Century XXXI the mankind applied the theories of the Time Travel. After some successful testing it was tried to to make actual travel. This was the ultimate mistake as it let to the destroyed the very fabric of the time/space continuum. Suddenly things, people and and events where in the wrong Time. It was a great opportunity to meet interesting people and watch important events, but as a side effect kings, emperors and generals of all different eras were trying to take over the world with super advanced technology and dinosaurs were feeding on humans as easy preys.

Mission: He and his twin sister are trying to build a machine to restore the time line. They travel across the world, help the people they find and look for the components they need. They paradox is: their mother was a Japanese astronaut from the Century XXVII and their father a European knight from the Century XVI.

Will the siblings be able to make the ultimate sacrifice by erasing themselves from existence? Will the Universe be able to take another Time Paradox, because if they do save the universe by restoring the reality and by consequence erase themselves from existence, how could they have saved the universe in the first place?

Save house: They guard their stuff on a Nuclear Power Plant. They will need nuclear energy once they finish the machine.

Powers:
He took a serum from the future made for firefighters and rescuers. The serum made him invulnerable to fire and gave him a heat sense. He also the bearer of a ring he took from a dead sun worshiper Pharaoh. The rings allows him to use the energy of the sun to rearrange the gases in the atmosphere to ignite it thus creating fire at his will.



Here's an image of him shooting fire of his feet as a human bullet, saving a blond stranger in the streets of Manhattan from a Tyrannosaurus Rex, perhaps.

He's known to wear shorts, a bullet proof vest, a courier bag and goggles. - Because of insects at high speed.

love the back story...very detailed. however, speaking of backs you should have drawn him from the front...

#25 Posted by sora_thekey (8173 posts) - - Show Bio
@Calvin: Wow Calvin welcome to the contest......

Nice backstory.... Selkirk is right the front would've been better.....

Still it's very good since the contest is about creating a Character and you did a very good job!

You say that because you never saw the faces I draw....  =D
Thank very much, I had lots of fun thinking about the story.

@sora_thekey: Thank you very much, I did have fun with this.

And I love the firely chick you made. The visual are great! I love her stand, great fire hair cut, and as a whole the the fire in her body was very nicely done. That kind of belt is always so good looking, it was a good choice. And it's great to see how well you controlled the directions, the fire in her body and the hair and the belt, all are being pushed in the same direction by the wind, I think.

As for the story, well I feel that there aren't enough mediavel superheroes, so very good too!

Well I usually don't enter contests I start, I know I technically didn't start this one since I was on vacation when it was started but I kind of go all out with my fire based characters so since today is the deadline I wouldn't have time.
