Contest Brief

I am working on a project and the character I would ask you to design would be the protagonist of it.
I'd ask you to make a character sheet in the style and views of the "Board [login to view URL]" file I attached. (this is not mine, but just serves as base inspiration)

You could start from the character in the model sheet as a very base model and apply the following changes (+ all the slight other changes you think necessary) in order to accomplish a different character altogether that has very small resemblance to this one (don't want copyright trouble/clone).
Basically, July's main features (I'll call her that) should be like this:
1. Her pupils color should be something like the ones in the image "[login to view URL]"
2. Her hairstyle should be like the one in the "[login to view URL]" image and colored like in "Hair [login to view URL]".
3. She should have a Spade tattoo under one of her eyes, see "[login to view URL]" and "Tattoo under [login to view URL]" (unlike the example image, tattoo should be on the left side of the face. on the opposite side of the direction the hair goes toward, this is for better design equilibrium)
3. As for her eyes, I really like the shape of those eyes, so it's hard for me to suggest anything different (I simply don't have the imagination), but see if you can come up with something similar but different, the only real suggestion I can make is add a little more make-up (you be the judge whether on the upper/lower side of the eyes or both)
4. Her bust should be increased (not exaggerated)
5. In terms of other features/shapes I give you complete freedom to do whatever works best that makes her different enough but also still balanced and that looks good.
6. The 13 Expression previews are really up to you, the only inputs I can really give are the personality traits of the character: Tough, Self-Aware, confident, responsive, playful, impatient, upsets easily on certain things.
7. The coloring should be done in the same vein as the one in the example sheet. The only elements that I want a different coloring and more detail on is the hair and eyes (see "Hair [login to view URL]").

The sheet (the one I want to order now) should be the character in a naked/unclothed like state (like the example sheet, no need to add intimate details of course).

    I wanted to thank and congratulate every artist that participated in this contest.
    I want you guys to know that in my eyes no entry is inferior to any other, it's just a matter of taste and necessity. I was very lucky to receive such outstanding entries, I was honestly baffled by each and every submission.
    Unfortunately I can not award everyone (I really would, you guys were all awesome). In the end I must choose, a hard choice as it kind of breaks my heart to pick one over the others, but I have no choice. However, everyone should be very proud of what they have done and if not for money at least I hope this contest was useful for you as well in other ways.
    I am sincerely looking forward and hoping on seeing you on potential other contest I will have to host in the future!
    Cheers, (:

    I am kinda new to this contests stuff. So I wonder how this works. Will you choose the winner when all sheets are done or it's enough a few pieces for you to decide who gonna do the work for you?

    Minor change, expressions should be done in a different sheet than the turnarounds.
    That's just for practical reasons. Also, in the expressions sheet there should be 2 extra expression other than the ones in the example board, one of her as she is closing her eyes (half closed) and one with her eyes closed. Nothing major.
    Also, forgot to mention it, the expressions should also be colored unlike the example sheet (if you can provide line art for both the turnarounds and expressions that's a plus!)

      Sorry, but after this one I have to commission another 8 sheets and my budget is limited. I'd rather allocate that money for you guys to take as the prize instead ;)

      Yes, the version I commented is really terrific! Just needs a bit more makeup in the upper corners of the eyes (go ahead and paint outside of the eye, much like I did in the example above).

    Hi! I saw your contest now :) Do you wanna receive only the character unclothed with the changes or this plus the expressions face? Thank You

      Hi!
      This + the expressions. Basically the end product should be a sheet in the same layout and same number/type of elements as in the example one provided.
      But with the new character instead (of course) :)
