ROUND #200 :: The MONARCH of CHOW DESCRIPTION
The MONARCH of CHOW
The queen is dead. Long live the... queen? 200 ChOWS, or rather 199 and itís time for a new mascot, and this time it doesnít HAVE to be a Queen. We want a monarch, so it could easily be a king instead.
The flag bearers have raised their poles. The courtiers are quivering in antici.... pation. The herald has blown his trumpet dry and the ministers are stroking their long... beards! The stage is set for a monarchís grand arrival so letís see that royal entrance! Design and create the King or Queen of MUSIC. What kind of music? Well, thatís up to you. Put your take on it. Metal, punk, classical, country, industrial, rockabilly, dance, goth, EMO, AOR, hard house, rap... the list goes on! Or somehow incorporate all those genres into one, if youíre plain bonkers enough.

Remember, the monarch is to be the mascot of the next 100 ChOWS! The reigning sovereign, so regal quality is pretty essential to the character; otherwise itís a fairly free brief. Make sure your chosen music is reflected in the character and costume and we want only one character design, male, female or any points in-between. As for whether human or not, human please as this is based on human experience. But variations thereof: ie: angel, vampire, mermaid etc. are OK as they feature in a lot of musical symbolism. More than one entry is permitted.
Have fun! But please keep the Youtube inspiration clips to a minimum!
