    Chow 123 :: The Blood Moon Monk

    The Blood Moon Monk:

    A strange figure with no particular religion or philosophy tied directly to him. He travels the world in search of knowledge - both of himself, and of the universe. To him, to be is to know, and only in knowing there is being.

    He seems to only wander into populated areas just when there is someone who needs to be 'taken care' of. This be a young man who needs only to be set back on the right path, or someone - something - much more dangerous, for which only lethal force can be used. Somehow, this strange monk just seems to always be in the right place at the right time...

    Notes:

    - He is almost a vigilante, but he has his own set of rigid rules and morals that he abides by - he is first and foremost a monk, second a man.

    - We're looking for a more eastern/Asian feel on this one, but don't let this limit you.

    - The Blood Moon is his emblem. You aren't required to use it, but keep it in mind.

    CHOW 124: 24th Century Space Smuggler

    Bahati ("Bad Bones") Lawrence is a Near Future (2400's) Jamaican-Japanese female ship pilot of a run-down merchant/smuggling/mercenary vessel for hire. She plows the space lanes with her alien co-pilot, a being from the Rim Worlds, looking for the next deal or Black Market shipment she can get to help make ends meet.

    Off beat and punky with a penchant for bright colours, shiny things, fuzzy dice, and little statues of Hawaiin girls that shake in those dresses, plus all the other detritus of living for long periods of time between ports and avoiding the authorities, Bahati is an okay shot, but much better at high-tailing it out of a tight squeeze.

    Her copilot is a non-human/non-terrestrial something. Be creative if you choose to include it, but it's not necessary.

    Notes:
    Bahati is female and Jamacian-Japanese.
    Her co-pilot is alien. If you include it and it looks like a human in a goon suit, you'll be automatically disqualified from the round.

    Reference: Blade Runner, Alien, Tank Girl and Firefly.

    Chow 125 :: Aztec Child Sacrifice to the Rain God Tláloc

    A young child is preparing for the sacrifice to the Rain God. Between 5-10, boy or girl, and BEFORE the sacrifice, not during or after! (We don't want to see any gore, thank you very much!)

    This is a bit of an open topic, but it IS a historic round. Feel free to play around with whatever ideas come to mind, but KEEP TO THE TIME PERIOD and the idea.

    Chow 126 :: Scheherazade

    DESCRIPTION

    Heroine and teller of the 1001 tales in the "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights".

    Read the attached for details on her story.

    The basics:

    - Her character and the stories that she tells have been traced all over the ancient world - Persia/Arabia/Egypt/India - so feel free to experiment within the time period, but this IS in the ancient world. No Alien Arabian Nights, please!

    - A strong woman, and an awesome story teller. Please keep in mind that she uses stories over seduction - your character should reflect that, and not just show off a skimpy outfit!

    CHOW 127 :: The Little Mermaid

    DESCRIPTION

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Little_Mermaid

    Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'.

    Please keep in mind that this is *not* the Disney version, and I don't want to see anything even remotely related to it.

    We need Two Character Designs for this: her mermaid form, and her maiden form. You may want to do this more as a straight-forward, orthographic design, but you are not required to.

    CHOW 128 :: The Clockwork Heart

    DESCRIPTION
    "The creaking of floorboards and the sound of heavy footsteps in the hall dragged the boys mind back into the damp and dark living room he had been playing in. Someone was at the door. The boy glanced at the clock to check the time, but the clock had stopped working ever since his dad had thrown it against the wall years ago. The doorknob squeaked. The boy dragged the wooden locomotive, which missed a wheel since he could remember having it, back with him into the shade as he hastily crept back to his corner, a hiding spot behind the desk. A tin soldier was left behind in the middle of the bare floor but the boy did not dare leave his hiding place to go back and retrieve it. The door creaked and then slammed shut. The footsteps came closer, then suddenly stopped. The boy peeked around the desk and caught sight of a large silhouette of a man in the doorway, framed by the light coming from the hall. The figure turned its head towards the boy. Not daring to move, the boy stared wide-eyed back at the man. Daddy was home.

    Without showing any sign of acknowledging his son, the man grunted and slowly took another step. With every step the man took, he seemed to slow down and become more and more unsteady. Finally he reached a flimsy wooden chair and sank down on it with a deep sigh, making it almost collapse under a weight is was never build for. The man’s breathing had become louder and heavier all the way towards the chair. With a tired sweep of his arm he took off his hat. Slowly he started to unbutton his heavy coat, and what at first was a faint ticking at the edge of hearing since he had entered now became the steady tick-tock like a clock. It seemed to come from inside the man’s clothes. The boy knew what was coming, but he remained hidden still.

    The father kept unbuttoning several layers of clothes, until he came to a leather chest piece held together by several belts. The ticking became louder. The boy dreaded this moment worse than any other time of the day, even worse than facing the other kids at school. With each belt that was unbuckled, the ticking seemed to become more aggressive and present. Finally, the leather chest piece came loose. The boy closed his eyes, but his mind could picture every detail of what he did not want to see. Roughly where the man’s heart should have been, a metal contraption was buried in his chest that ticked with the deafening punctuality of a clock. Moving parts where visible inside it, gears and flywheels and springs, all moving to the same beat. The boy opened his eyes, preparing for what was to come.

    The man fumbled with the clamps that kept the contraption in place, then grabbed the clockwork heart with both hands and with a grunt of effort he pulled it out and slammed it on the table next to him. It kept on ticking, but now the table acted like an amplifier. The boy wanted to clasp his hands over his ears to keep the sound out, but knew it would only make his father angrier. Slowly he got up on his feet, dropping the toy train. With an impatient gesture his daddy motioned him to come closer. This movement seemed to cost him a lot of willpower, as his eyes rolled up to show only white for a moment and he gasped for breath. A hoarse whisper came out of his mouth: “rewind it, son…before mom comes home...”


    NOTES:
    The main character is the father. You may illustrate the son and the mother if you wish, but they are not necessary.

    If you plan on participating in IDW as well, the Clockwork Heart must be included in a sidebar and be fully illustrated.

    It may be easier to do an Ortho view of the Father for this round.Attachment 484838

    Chow 133 :: Spike, the Dragon Dentist

    Ike goes by "Spike" and he's a Dragon Dentist. So you dread getting your wisdom teeth pulled? Spike offers wisdom while pulling your teeth! Many used to gossip that Spike was a dragon "slayer" based on the tools in his possession. A wanderer by nature, he's never had or needed an office.

    -Spike is a Dragon Dentist without an office, he travels the lands answering house calls (carries the tools he needs with him at all times) No pictures of a dentist in an room with a dragon in his chair please

    -Spike is old and wise, something of an ancient legend himself

    -Time period could vary from ancient fantasy to modern day, but nothing about Spike is ordinary.

    -Spike is human.

    Chow 134 :: The Eclectic, Eccentric Singer

    Inspiration: Tom Waits "Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards"

    Description: A man or woman who has been around for a long time, their age disguised by wrinkles and scars that the times have written on their face. A person of faith, but not necessarily of a religion, just a power of greater than their own. No man tells them what to do with their life, they are guided by winds and season. A drifter by day and a power of soul by night. They travel from town to town, playing in low-lit bars, drinking to drown out a regretful past. They sleeps when they can, eats what people give them. Their clothes are dated to a time before modern day technology i.e. a tattered suit with old snakeskin boots.

    Their only goal in their memorable life is to sing about their life story, full of tragedy and despair. They has a good heart but life and appearance shows different.

    In short, a vagabond.
