"Where YOUR character is the star!"

My Character Club is founded, designed, and ran with the sole purpose of getting your original characters out into the world. We want to see your characters appear on the Daily Deviations, Top Favorited, and Front Page. Here, we encourage members to get to know one another and get involved with each others original works. Fan art of mainstream characters is not allowed, but fan art of your original creations is strongly encouraged. In fact, it is our goal to see others drawing your designs!

So welcome, and keep an eye out for monthly spotlights, featured works, theme challenges, and collaboration competitions!

Hello all!

It has been a while since an update to the group blog. I have been occupied with new life changes for some time, but during my leave, I have come to realize the great talent that has collected here! There have been some really impressive contributions to the galleries in the recent months and I would like to kickstart a new competition.

Starting today, the Monthly Theme Contest will be one that keeps the idea of the holidays in mind:


Confused? Let me explain. To participate, you need to find someone else's Original Character (cannot be your own!) and do a surprise commission for them! It doesn't even have to be a friend, family member, or famous member. Just dig up an OC or person you'd like to do something nice for, and draw their character for them! Get creative - add a new outfit, make a comic, do a re-skin, or get their OC into the holiday spirit! Here's a breakdown of the rules:


- Must not be your own Original Character
- Must link the OC's Original Owner in the description of the piece.
- Must stick recognizably close to the original design (Example: A genderbent, furry, pallet swap, haircut version of a human OC with extra arms and new outfit. Limit the changes.)
- One Entry per week per person.
- MUST submit completed piece to the Monthly Contest folder.
- MUST respect original owner's copyrights or request to NOT draw a character. No means no.
- MUST be 100% your own work. No photo manipulations, line art coloring, or art theft of another user's work. Seriously, no one likes a Grinch.

Pretty simple, right?

Now, I know not many of you do things for free or have the time to participate without a little incentive. This month, the winner will receive 2,000 DA Points! That's enough for 3 months of Core Membership or a neat contribution to a print, gear, or something nice for yourself or loved one. I will also select 3 runners up who will also receive 400 DA points each. Since this is out of my own personal pocket, I will be the deciding judge of the final work. Let me reiterate:

First Place: Entered into the Featured Folder & 2,000 DA Points!
Runner Up x 3: Entered into the Featured Folder & 400 DA Points!

Deadline is January 15th, 2016. That's more than enough time to complete at least one piece! Again, keep in mind, you are permitted one entry per week, per account/person.

But remember, this isn't about the prizes, it's about giving and being thankful for all the amazing ideas out there. Show someone you appreciate them, and do something special!

Thanks for being you,
