CCC - Character Compounding Contest! (Round Thirteen: Cecilia, Pent and Saleh!)

Hello and welcome to the 13th edition of the CCC, it’s an honour to be your new host, you may refer to me as Matthieu or Eden, I hope we’ll all have fun!

I want to try a new voting system that I’ll explain below.

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 Lucius 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.
  • Heck, 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!

THE RULES
  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 charactersif 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 1-16 (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!
    (Hack box 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.

The winner of each round picks two mugs and a theme for the next round! If you want the community to work hard toward making designs for your favourite waifu/husbando, you’ll have to get that top vote!
The third character will be chosen via a poll at the end, and each one of them will follow the theme chosen by the winner.

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.

Just a notice that Matthieu has my blessing to take over. I’m extremely busy these days with my other projects, so I’ll leave the CCC in their capable hands :smiley:

Also remember to only make one submission post, and include a compilation image if you submit multiple mugs so it’s easy for Matthieu to put in the final poll-post.

Peace!

Hello, I wanted to thank everyone who has already submitted their work. There is only one day left before voting.
It’s likely you’ll only be able to vote once considering there are fewer submissions.

The next round will probably be after the holiday period, January the first.
If you want to make suggestions on how to improve the format, feel free to do so.

Have a wonderful day!
