MFC September: Angel_Melfina's Alexis DuGall--Winners!

Monthly Featured Character: September


RPGateway wants to feature YOUR original roleplay character




September's MFC theme will be the winner of the last MFC's character:


Angel_Melfina's character, Alexis DuGall



    Name: Alexis DuGall

    Species: Human (with superpowers)

    Appearance: I really have not thought about what she looks like yet, as I haven't yet begun the RP. I really want people to be able to go crazy with their imaginations. I know I want her to be very thin, with long, straight hair. She is American. At work, she wears a simple business suit, but at home, she wears paint-stained jeans and t-shirts. As for eye color, hair color and all of that, feel free to do what you imagine her to be.

    Personality: When by herself, Alex is on top of the world. Her art fills her with adrenaline and creates an air of confidence around her, even if it hasn't been accepted at any galleries as of yet. However, when she is at work or at around her parents, she is timid and obedient. Alexis never had a lot of friends, as she kept to herself, so she even finds it hard to open up around the people she can call friends.

    Brief Biography:Alexis was born 27 years ago to Frank and Charlene DuGall. Her parents were not well off, but made average salaries on which they supported their only child. The young girl always made the good grades that her parents pushed her to make, but her true passion, as she learned early on, was art. Almost every night while Alexis was supposed to be studying, her paintbrush was going hard at work on a piece of computer paper that she had stolen from her father's office, and every night, she was caught and made to work on her academic grades instead. Frank and Charlene never understood their daughter's love of the brush; they were too preoccupied with trying to get her into the workforce to do well for herself later in life.

    When Alexis turned 20, much to the dismay of her folks, she finally moved out into a small studio apartment closer to her college. She excelled in art classes there, thriving from the scholarships she had been awarded from high school; she had something to be thankful to her parents for. When Alexis refused to conform to the strict art standards of the college, however, she dropped out, not ready to throw her own style and techniques to the side just to mimic others.

    After dropping out at 21, Alexis got a job at a nearby art gallery, only working as a receptionist. She has worked there since, still trying to break into the art world to get her name out there. After a few years of raises and praise, Alexis finally upgraded to a larger apartment, one in which she had her own art studio to work on her passion and escape from the heartbreak that was the art world.

    She also has the power to manipulate minds.


Deadline is September 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

Hmm.. Interesting character. I'll have a lot of fun with this one, I think (so many choices!!).
I'll try to pull something together when I have some free time, but i'm starting back at school tomorrow, and It's my final year (yay, pressure! >_<''), so I don't know how active I'll manage to be in these contests...but exams aren't till like, easter, so hopefully I'll be able to hold off the revision for quite a while... ^_^''

...aaand i have no idea why i'm telling you all this. =D

Hm. I just might give it a shot. I don't expect to win though.

Now I have to get cracking on both the picture and the bio...

One question : Are pencil sketches i.e. no colour allowed?

Well, that makes it easy for me! (I can't colour for shite..)

I started working on a rough sketch in school today, and if I can find our camera to get a picture, I should hopefully have it up in a week or two. Depends on how much work school dumps on me.

But I'm definately gonna enter this =3

Whoohoo! Melfina's character seems to be pretty popular.

DJAtomika, any kind of character profile/bio is allowed--as long as it's in good taste, i.e.: no porno, excessive violence, etc. So yeah, don't limit your bio to genre--have at it!

Technically, Alex is sort of from the Fantasy Genre. She has a super power, she just doesn't know what it is yet, and it wasn't relevant to someone drawing her.

She has the randomly assigned power to manipulate minds. If you guys think you can incorporate that somehow, then go for it. :)

I may actually try to draw her myself, since I got back into drawing today. =3

Oooh. Now that powers have been added to it, I may actually try this!

I've done superhero drawing for people in the past, so I know ways to make her power visible. I haven't done many realistic drawings, such as buisness suits and such, but I'll do my best.

My entry will be up soon, and it's sure to be a masterpiece. xD

Crap. Powers, unless clearly visible like pyrogenesis and other crap like that, I can do. Mind manipulation will take some time for me to think up.

I don't think I'm gonna win, but I'm just gonna participate for the heck of it.
