Monthly Featured Character: June


RPGateway wants to feature YOUR original roleplay character




June's MFA theme will be the winner of the last MFAs character:


Jadeling Hawkins' character, Richelle June Oaken


  • Name: Richelle June Oaken
  • Species: Human
  • Hair:
    • Dark brown, usually worn in two long braids that reach her waist.
    • Seems to be constantly trying to push her bangs out of her face.
  • Eyes: Deep green
  • Clothes:
    • Usually wears a green dress, white apron, brown corset.
    • Casual slip-on shoes.
    • Also wears a necklace that consists of a gold chain and a coin with a pirate symbol on it, and a gold ring with what appears to be a cat's head etched on its face.
  • Other Physical Details:
    • A young slip of a thing, Richelle is often considered 'prettyish,' but not 'beautiful' (but don't tell that to James MacLeod, as he will likely beat you with a fish for downplaying the unearthly beauty of his Poppet).
    • Her skin is a tad darker than average, which has only increased with her constant time under the sun.
    • Recently became adept in fencing and other swordplay, but does not habitually carry a blade. Has been known to disguise herself as a nobleman with a beard on at least one occasion.
  • Personality:
    • In a few short words, sweet and sassy.
    • Has a bit of a defiant streak, and her wit is considered her greatest weapon.
    • Once her loyalty is won, it is virtually impossible to shake off.
  • Brief Bio:
    • Richelle was born the eight child (and only daughter) of a blacksmith and his wife. She was trained in the arts of ladyship by an aunt that married well, but was instead attracted to the life of a pickpocket. She became quite skilled in the art, but her parents eventually had enough of meetings with constables and she was shipped out to live with an uncle.
    • But the ship she was on was wrecked in a hurricane, though she miraculously survived. It was here that her life truly began.
    • She met and fell deeply in love with James MacLeod, and became a member of the good ship Fledgling, captained by Elizabeth Darson (both individuals being survivors of the storm).
    • They discovered the Seven Cities of Gold, became exceedingly rich...and then James was arrested by his own brother.
    • Richelle spent the next two years attempting to get him free, and finally succeeded, with the assistance of her friends, on the day he was meant to be hung.
    • However, she had the great misfortune of discovering a scroll, hidden away inside a staff. Upon touching the scroll, which turned out to be a map to the legendary city of Elkab, she became the recipient of the curse of a Raksasha, and now must reach Elkab if she is to survive.
  • Sample Images:
    • Richelle June Oaken: link
    • James MacLeod: link


Deadline is June 25th

The top three submissions will be featured on RPGateway's dA page. The first place winner will have his or her RPG character featured as the theme for next month's MFA.

---The Typical Spiel---

Every month, there will be a theme for you all to interpret and draw. It doesn't even have to be a sketch-- it could be a comic, animation, or photograph.

At the deadline, the top three submissions that reflect the theme the best and most creatively will be uploaded onto the RolePlayGateway deviantart gallery.

An example of the quality of entries we have received in past Monthly Featured contests can be found here


RULES:
    → Please upload or link all images in this topic.
    → Submit as many entries as you wish.
    → Judges are yet to be decided but most likely will be the Artwork mods
    → Any ORIGINAL digital medium accepted (including scanned works, audio recording, etc).
    → If you choose to use works that were not created by you (such as photos, images, or graphics), please cite your sources accordingly.

---

Winners!

Kohaninja's "Wanted: Richelle June Oaken"

2nd Place:
Hayley's "Meester Mustache"

That's really cute, Mega ^^ I can't wait to see it colored! lol and I'm totally drawing something inspired by this event, even though I really can't enter the contest (or at least I would feel silly entering a contest centered on my own character, I'd much rather see what everyone else does ^^ ). Just so y'all know. XD

Well, I worked all day, while I still had the drive and lack-of-anything-else-to-distract-me. =P And here it is.

Image


Aaand, here's a profile...
___________________________________________________


    Name: Nagome Clanakte (Mouthful, baby)

    Species: A mutt, plain and simple. Most species I've made with friends, so... closest we can say is "wolf demon", although I detest that term.

    Appearance: Major shortie, about 4'9", on a good day. Her hair and fur is white, and her eyes a very, very pale blue, as well as her skin. She could be classified as an albino. She has baby blue markings all over her body (I mean ALL over), much like tribal tattoos. (I'm so sorry, I don't have a reference picture for those. :\) Anywho, her hair has gone through a lot of different phases, so it's your preference. Short and choppy or long and wavy? As far as the wolf features go, she has ears to the side of her head, a tail, and a dog nose. Pretty simple. She can shape-shift into an assortment of forms, lycanthrope and wolf included.

    Personality: She has a very short temper, easily angered, especially if you threaten the "pack". She is very caring toward her children, aside from the triplets, who need all the tough love they can get.

    Brief Biography: Nagome's life is a little long, so I'll give a brief synopsis of the more modern. She's insanely adept at magic, having mastered the runes necessary, and having an excess of magic in her system. In other words? If you can think it, she can cast it. She's romantically troubled, and in the end, gave up and accepted three men into her life - Xavernus, an incubus lord; Roa, a saber-tooth tiger "demon"; and Cross, a wolf-demon bodyguard in the Alaskan kingdom. As a result, she has ten kids. And thus, the "pack" is made.

    Sample Image: (Optional) http://img61.imageshack.us/img61/4853/leggomyeggoqz5.png <--- Scary and Angry. Also an example of her long hair.
    http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/1128/packew8.jpg <--- Normal, example of short hair.

LOL thats awesome...
The writer who cares more about words than about characters, action, setting, atmosphere is unlikely to create a vivid and continuous dream; he gets in his own way too much; in his poetic drunkenness, he can't tell the cart- and its cargo- from the horse.

Is the mustache an inside joke among the Possibly Pirates ilk?

Along with Yami's submission, maybe I'll contribute a cute little Flash animation like last time.

Lol that would be awesome, Ingrid ^^ And w00t I posted on the news article :)

And as far as the whole mustache thing goes...during the daring rescue in the very beginning of Possibly Pirates 2, Richelle and Elizabeth disguised themselves as gentlemen in order to get into the King's private hanging of the Dread Pirate MacLeod (teehee). So, beard, powdered wig, fancy clothes...all that. Does that count as a private joke?

Haha, okay, so....life's been a little straining for me lately and I haven't had a chance to actually draw something yet...so instead, I made a Gaia avatar of Richelle as she first appeared XD

It was harder than you might think. Surprisingly enough, they don't have a simple green dress, white apron, or any of the exceedingly casual things that make up her common attire o_O So this is as close as I could get. Enjoy.
