This is cool and if I’d heard about it earlier I would have totally signed up!
‘The 30 Characters Challenge’ is to create 30 new characters in 30 days, one for every day in November*. Because there can never be too many characters, right? Who’s with me?
This is a great website to visit for inspiration not to mention great art. With over 150 participants, including several webcomic artists, all you’ve gotta do is sit there and refresh the page ever 10 minutes or so and you’re going to find something new.
We’re talking characters in every style and genre, stretching the imagination and getting the creative juices flowing. Those artistic muscles don’t exercise themselves! Character design can be tricky and there’s nothing like learning by example.
Registration is closed, but late-comers are encouraged to participate on their personal websites. Personally I’ll be waiting til next year (I should be using my free time to draw comics anyway), but that doesn’t mean I haven’t bookmarked 30characters.com and won’t be enjoying what its artists have to offer – I certainly shall.
*Yes, the same month as NaNoWriMo, just to be awkward.
