CCC - Character Compounding Contest! (Round Sixteenth: Camilla, Elise and Felicia)

Hello everyone and welcome to the sixteenth iteration of the CCC.
First, I wanted to thank everyone for continuing to support this format.
Then, I read and considered everyone’s feedback and quickly wanted to address some issues.
It seems the character choices for this round and maybe the previous ones I hosted aren’t unanimous. I’m sorry to learn this, I voluntarily forfeited the host’s right to choose the last character, so the community and winners are the ones who select the next characters, of course, they aren’t to blame.
It’s true I asked that the characters chosen follow a certain theme or have them linked with another character, which was the case for the older CCCs (Anna and Jake, Ephraim and Eirika, Nino and Jaffar, Elphin and Larum etc…) and have the format make a comeback to its roots of sorts, yet, if it limits creativity and removes any motivation for the artists, I’ll think of something else for the future. Thus I wanted to apologize if you have been disappointed in the recent rounds.
Furthermore, I already pointed it out last time, because they haven’t been any GBA characters in the last few rounds, if the winners don’t choose at least one of them, the third character options will be restricted to GBA characters. Hopefully, that way, even beginner artists can contribute more easily to the CCC.
I wish we can all, together, find ways to make this event more fun and memorable, thank you again for the feedback.

The goal of this contest is to take an existing character (posted at the bottom!) and reimagine, reinvent, or rework them into a new form! What sort of new form? Taking inspiration from FE Heroes and other similar media, you simply redesign the character in one of (but not limited to) the following ways:

  • De-age or age up the character. Make them lively, or make them cranky.
  • Turn them into another character! These ‘cosplay’ edits are not limited to mainline FE games or fangames, you can even do characters from other series, TV, etc.
  • Give the character a new design! Make them jacked, give them cool armour, redesign them from scratch, or whatever your heart desires.
  • Genderbend them! Turn Nino into a boy, or Jaffar into a girl! The possibilities here are endless!
  • RADICALLY redesign them: Make them into crazy demons, the Joker, Kirby(???), but try to keep the ‘essence’ of the original character in some way.
  • Why not just take a regular character’s design and make them into a halfbody? That could be fun too!

This contest is very free-form. You come up with the character’s redesign and try your best to get people to vote for you!

  1. All submissions to this contest will be F2E! This contest involves expanding the resources available for the Portrait Repository, so this is mandatory.
  2. Each round of the contest will feature three mugs.
  3. Artists may create an alternate outfit/design/etc for one or multiple characters, if they wish.
  4. You may submit multiple designs, if you wish. They will all count toward your one submission vote. (Voters will vote on all of the works you created for the three mugs at once)
  5. No pre-existing artwork! The point of this contest is to expand the repo, so we want new art. Also, it’s unfair to compete against artwork that may have had weeks or months of editing work put into it.
  6. Eye/mouth frames are preferable, but optional. They aren’t necessary, but it would be awesome if you included them!
  7. Characters must either be from Fire Emblem 1-17 (Or whatever the current new game ends up being) or one of the Fire Emblem spinoffs, such as Heroes.
  8. All characters must be sprited in GBA format!
    (Hackbox size is not necessary)
    (Halfbodies/fullbodies are A-OK!)
    (Do try to keep the colour count at or below 16 though, that would be great)
  9. Submissions must at least somewhat resemble the original character! Even with the Demon Anna example earlier, it’s still possible to see that she looks like Anna; use that as the extreme guideline.

First and Second Place each pick one character for the next round.
Then the community gets to vote on the third character they want to see as well!
However, the third character options will be based on the first place’s choice.

This competition is very casual. It’s not intended to be a hardcore demonstration of spriting prowess or anything, though that can be fun, too. The primary purpose is to create lots of cool mugs for the community to use.

Since I’ve already did Camilla and Felicia, here’s Elise.


For Camilla, I offer you a young alt based off her fan design from the fan-made Concubine Wars by MaxHP on YouTube, complete with Corrin alt because I realized while spriting her that they have similar hairstyles.

Felicia’s early concept art design. Not bad for my first mostly-freehanded sprite. F2E.


We’ve got no trouble.

Holy shit RedBean, you really outdid yourself with these. I can tell you experimented a bit, and it really payed of. The colors and poses really pop. Fantastic work!


Thank you for your praise,BuskHusker.
But I look forward to your artworks more than my works.
Don’t know if we have a chance to see it? Even if this round is over.


I’ll participate in another round in the future (hopefully next round if I like the characters), right now I’m just taking time away from art to focus on other things is all.


@RedBean wins once again, with @JeyTheCount taking the second place.
The characters for the next round haven’t been decided yet however it’s not an issue because the next round will only begin on May the first.
Rather than having another round during the month of April, I’ll make a post with various polls regarding the CCC, whether it be the number of characters being featured each round or how long the voting period will last, you’ll be able to vote and actively change this format for the best. This break will also allow artists to rest because each time a round ended, shortly after, a new round began and it might have been asking too much of them, and I would like to apologize for that.
Therefore, when you’ll vote on the length of each round, please consider the artists as well if you aren’t one yourself.
With this being stated, I’ll announce the characters for the next round here, as well as the vote for the third character, they will be under this post and not the one I’ll post in April.
I wish you all a nice day.


The characters for the next round have been chosen, round 17 will feature Alear and Yunaka from Fire Emblem Engage!

You can now choose which character will accompany them, here are your options:
