    Character of the Week #314
    The Old Swamp Hermit

    Deadline - Sunday, January 27 10PM GMT


    Nobody knows why the Old Swamp Hermit came to live in the depths of the murky swamp. For more than 20 years he has called
    the swamp his home and has learned how to use the environment to his advantage, setting traps, camouflaging himself and
    living alongside the many creatures that dwell within the murky swamps. Although he sometimes reminiscences about the
    world he left behind and occasionally thinks about returning, one thing is for certain, the swamp has changed him forever.



    The Guidelines:
    • Gender: Male
    • Age: Mid 60’s
    • Time Period: Current day
    • Think about why the Old Swamp Hermit might have come to live in such a undesirable environment.
      Was he tired of civilization? Was he trying to escape from someone or something?


    The Rules
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
    • At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
    • Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll
    • At least two wips posted with your final in the finals thread
    • Background is optional
    • Have fun!

    The old hermit was not alienated by society, he deliberately chose exile. No one knows why, but it's the same old story; a lost love, a bad decision regretted for life, an estranged child- in the end solitude is the only answer.



    Thanks Quinn for reminding me about the wips!

    Wish I had more time to work out the kinks but won't have time.
    Sadly also for some reason didn't hit me to get a better WIP shot of the revision.
