GUIDELINES


This is a commenting contest.

To be eligible, each entrant must provide character-by-character feedback on the eligible artworks listed below. Each commenter will detail what they did (and potentially didn't) like about each character's design and/or backstory from the descriptions.

Each comment must be posted to an eligible drawing and must cover each character featured in that particular drawing.

PRIZES


I will be awarding prizes to the TOP FIVE commenters who are eligible for this contest. For these five winners, I will draw an illustration of a character of each winner's choosing. 

It's a perfect opportunity for those of you who may not have the money to commission me, which means that each prize has a value of $20.

SCORING

I grade each comment as "Small," "Medium" or "Large." Comments that qualify as small will only feature 1-2 sentences per character, medium comments will feature 3-5, and large comments feature 5+ sentences per character of feedback. Small comments receive one point, medium comments receive three points and large comments receive 5 points. Of course, filler comments where you're not really talking about the art or description will result in a lower point score. Saying all of two words about the art and then going off onto a tangent won't earn much of a score, for instance.

Anyway, scores are tallied using these points. To further help with this, I've decided to include your score in the leaderboard below.

If it helps, you can structure each of your character-by-character comments with sentences such as "I like this design because…" and "I like this backstory because…" Be specific! That's how you'll win this contest!

Now, here are your eligible drawings...

Commission - Nightshade and Eve Eden by Femmes-Fatales
Commission - Nightshade and Eve Eden
This is another commission for Lion-O-VS-He-Man.

Nightshade is a Charlton Comics character, who was later brought over to DC Comics. She was originally meant to be an influence on Silk Spectre during the creation of Watchmen and was later included as a prominent member of the original Suicide Squad. She was also part of the supernatural group known as Shadowpact.

I was asked to draw Nightshade in her classic costume, accompanied by her in her alter ego as Eve Eden. Though I was initially asked to draw Eve in a casual look, it was later shifted towards the formal gown you see here.

As always, I love hearing from you guys so please feel free to leave a comment below!

Enjoy! :)

My DCU - Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld Redesigns by Femmes-Fatales
My DCU - Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld Redesigns
Part 22 of my head canon DC Universe redesigns.

ORIGINS

Thousands of years ago, the Earth was home to all sorts of magical beings. From fairies to mermaids, our world was brimming with magical energies. As time wore on and faith shifted towards logic, the magical energies of the Earth waned and the creatures that were once plentiful were now dying off. 
Citrina, the world's most powerful sorceress, used her vast reserves of magic to create another dimension where her people could live prosperously. This became Gemworld.

This world was divided up into twelve provinces, each one ruled by a monarchy (known as Houses). Each monarch had his or her own ability, which was passed down through the magical energies of their respective gem.

Up until recently, the House of Amethyst acted as the governing party for Gemworld. The fall of the House of Amethyst was due to an evil rebellion led by the allied forces of the Houses of Opal, Sardonyx and Sapphire. During this long and disastrous war, Lady and Lord Amethyst were forced to send their only daughter to another world where she could grow up free of evil's influence. On Earth, this child was named Amy Winston and grew into her teens in relative normalcy.

This changed forever when she was called upon by the sorceress Citrina. Since Amy was much older and capable of handling her birthright, Citrina spirited Amy way to Gemworld and revealed to her the truth about her origins. Now, Amy must train hard in the ways of magic to overthrow Dark Opal and his insidious allies.

Princess Emerald

Princess Emerald was the middle child of the House of Emerald's three daughters. When her older sister was murdered by Dark Opal, Emerald's mother fell into a deep depression and was unable to lead her House. Thus, the responsibility fell to the middle Emerald sister. The nature-loving elementals of the province of Emerald have long been pacifists and were incapable of fighting off the forces of Dark Opal. Realizing that her parents' pacifism contributed towards the downfall of Gemworld, Princess Emerald must take a more active approach. She's allied her province with her neighbours - the House of Amethyst and the House of Topaz - in hopes of creating a stronghold to defeat their northern and southern enemies. There's just one problem. Since her mother is still alive, Emerald cannot and will not inherit the full power of the House of Emerald. Instead, she must hone her skills as a warrior and train hard with the sorceress Citrina to tap into her innate ability to control the elements.

Princess Amethyst

Once a computer prodigy on Earth, Amy Winston is now the sole inheritor of the House of Amethyst. Under the tutelage of Citrina, Amy has been honing her magical gifts, while Lord Garnet has been training her in the art of war. All of this is in hopes of preparing Amethyst to reclaim her throne and defeat Dark Opal's forces. She's capable of creating near-unbreakable constructs out of her namesake gemstone and can control powerful violet energies. Her gemstone is also unique in that it allows her to transport herself between Earth and Gemworld.

Lady Turquoise

Lady Turquoise is the head of the House of Turquoise, one of the most aggressive provinces on Gemworld. She is a fierce warrior, whose skills as a hand-to-hand combatant are matched only by her northern ally Lord Garnet. Unlike the other rulers of Gemworld, Lady Turquoise lacks magical gifts that grant her any special abilities in battle. Still, she is said to have superior strength and is presumed to be invincible. Despite her outward aggression and overall love of all things violent, Turquoise is also a passionate and sensual woman who has yet to take a husband. She has, however, set her sights on Prince Topaz. The problem there being that he's in love with Princess Amethyst (oh no!).

DESIGNS

For anyone familiar with Amethyst or her DC Nation shorts, these designs should be fairly straightforward and familiar. Amethyst received a blending of her Pre-Crisis, Post-Flashpoint and DC Nation looks. She's wearing a purple tunic worn over lighter purple tights, which is accessorized with gold armour. Similarly, Turquoise is wearing a full suit of armour much like she did in the original comics. My overall goal with her was to give her a Red Sonja meets Barbarella kind of look. Lastly, there's Emerald. She's another mishmash. I took influences from the DC Nation model, then did my own thing with it. Of these three, she's probably got the more original costume since it's not entirely like something she's worn before. I also decided to give her a different weapon set than Amethyst and Turquoise (both of whom use blades). Instead, Emerald chose a staff.

RELATIONSHIPS

In selecting these three as the primary Gemworld heroines, I went for three very distinct personalities that mimic magical girl archetypal roles. Amethyst is the unlikely leader, who is thrust into this crazy world of magic and is entirely uncertain of herself. She's not the most confident individual and often wishes she could just stay on Earth with her adoptive parents. Still, she's incredibly brave, courageous and selfless. Think of her like the Usagi/Hikaru/Ichigo/Lucia. Emerald is the quiet one, who moreso keeps to herself and is fairly unassuming. She's smart, well-read and feminine. She's not the greatest fighter and is more of a defensive character. Think of her like the Ami/Fuu/Lettuce/Hanon. Turquoise is a bit of a bad girl and is certainly very opinionated, boyish and strong-willed. She's the most aggressive of the bunch, which often means she's the source of conflict particularly in terms of butting heads with Amethyst. Think of her like the Rei/Umi/Mint/Rina. These three are the best of friends and allies in the battle against Dark Opal's forces, but there are petty squabbles here and there.

As always, I love hearing from you all so please feel free to leave a comment below to let me know what you think of these designs, the characters and their backstories in my head canon.

Enjoy! :)

Thank you for your reply.
How many more characters are left to be created in your series do you think?

Of the protagonists, I was aiming to do eight more. Aside from Tinkerbell, I've gone in chronological order of when they first debuted so that should indicate which ones might be done.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm taking a little break from my Marvel teams for a quick minute to concentrate on my better performing series - namely my DCU redesigns, my Sailor Moon style files, and my Disney Princess works.

However, I did hope to do X-Factor and X-Force (even if splinter teams New Mutants and Alpha Flight have underperformed).

Again, thanks for the support! Feel free to comment on some of the works you like best. Feedback is always very encouraging and motivational. :)

Of course! How could I not? Looks like they're really giving props to the JSA. Makes sense given the fact that they've been going with the Multiple Earths concept.

Hilarious, huh? She's largely been eclipsed by the version Marvel used to create the basis for the Vision. However, people have become more familiar with Ma Hunkel due to her granddaughter becoming a member of the JSA decades later. She's a fan-favourite amongst JSA fans. You'd probably really like her. She's this cutesy redhead who goes by the codename Cyclone.
