I didn't realize Ludum Dare was the weekend of April 22nd, so I'll be way too busy then ^^;

I haven't held a contest in a year, so I figured now would be a great time to hold one since I can now offer money as a prize!



Theme:

Draw either of my magical girl mascots


Characters:


For this contest you can draw either of my magical girl mascots, Mikomi Kisomi or Rimia Diala! You can draw one of them or both together, whichever you chose.

Mikomi Kisomi


* NOTE: Mikomi has a CHUBBY body type, so if you can only draw skinny girls you should draw Rimia. *

Miko is a 15 year old Asian-American girl attending a private academy named Rosemarie Academy for witches. She is headstrong and can be stubborn at times. She loves cherries, and her magic specialty is conjuring purple explosive orbs. She has many outfits, so I've put only a few below and the rest are in links under "Fullbody references". (Some of my older art doesn't have her as chubby like she should be, please keep that in mind!)

A few good references:

Mikomi Chibi by MikomiKisomi
[CE] Never Enough Bows by MikomiKisomi Winter Mikomi by MikomiKisomi Magic and Swords by MikomiKisomi Sunflowers and Sunshine by MikomiKisomi AT: Magic Love by MissRiku+ AT - Mikomi the Witch + by heathergreyfeather

Fullbody references:

Summer school uniform
Regular outfit
Older regular outfit

Rimia Diala


Rimia is a 14 year old white girl attending a special summer university that trains witches to work for the Venator, an elite peace keeping group between the worlds. She is brave but doubtful, often second guessing herself. Her favorite food is pasta, and her magic specialty is manipulating shadows. She only has two outfits (not including a seasonal one).

A few references:

[OC-tober] Rimia by MikomiKisomi Center of My World by MikomiKisomi Rimia by MikomiKisomi
Magicana ~ Ruins [Free Visual Novel] by MikomiKisomi R Talk by MikomiKisomi Rimia Chibi by MikomiKisomi Rimia Chibi by MikomiKisomi Rimia Hair by MikomiKisomi

Older regular outfit

Wand Reference:

(Rimia is top row, middle one, and Mikomi is bottom row, first one)

FAQ:


Q: Can I enter? A: Yes. Everyone can enter, you don't have to ask permission to enter.

Q: Can I donate prizes? A: Sure! Please note me with any prizes you'd like to donate! You can also still enter the contest if you donate.

Q: Can I draw them both? Can I draw them alone? A: Either is fine! You can draw them together or separate. You don't have to draw both, either, just one.

Q: Can I draw traditionally? Can I write about them? A: This is a drawing contest, so no literature is allowed. Traditional and digital media are welcome!

Q: Can you tell me more about the characters? A: Sure! For conciseness I didn't put a lot about their personalities or lives in this journal, so if you have any specific questions feel free to ask them below!

Q: Can I draw them with my characters? In other outfits? A: No. This is just for drawing Mikomi and/or Rimia, so no other characters please. Please keep them in the outfits I've listed as well!

Q: How many entries can I submit? A: 3 is the max number of submissions. Why 3? 2 if you want to draw them separately, and 1 more if you want to draw them together! (Of course, you can do whatever you feel like for the entries)

Thank you for reading!

Uwahh your OCs are so cute!! Are they similar to traditional witches as in does Rimia ride on a broom? XD I have an idea for an entry, but I need to know if she does ride on a broom 
Reply
:iconmikomikisomi:
MikomiKisomi Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Thank you very much! :love: Mikomi does have a broom, but Rimia doesn't. While they live in the same universe, they come from different cultural standpoints- where Mikomi lives, brooms are more of a necessity as travel is harder; where Rimia lives, they're more like bicycles/toys, as there are much faster ways of travel.

Oh then I can draw Mikomi xD would you say she's about this body type or smaller or bigger?

what does her broom look like?
Reply
:iconmikomikisomi:
MikomiKisomi Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017  Student Digital Artist
No, she's bigger than that. More this size: 68.media.tumblr.com/5b9c2fb2a4… The thumb references in the journal are a good indicator of her size.

Her broom reference is on the winter school uniform reference, here: Miko Ref

Ah sorry I missed it ^^; ok. How does she sit on the broom?
Like one leg on each side like this: s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/7…
Or both legs on one side like this: s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/o…

I might enter if I have the chance. Just a quick couple questions.

Does Rimia have any specific type of tool she uses to cast her magic like a staff, wand or other kind object or is it just chanting?
Also does she have a specific symbol she uses or any specific uses for her shadows?
Reply
:iconmikomikisomi:
MikomiKisomi Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Oh, I should probably have put this in the journal ^^;

Wands And Owners by MikomiKisomi

Both Miko and Rimia use wands, which I drew above. They're about a foot long, and can be briefly seen in some of the references (the only one that has Rimia's wand was the first reference).

Nope, she finds it hard to form her shadows into specific shapes for now.

:iconarousingsoul:
ArousingSoul Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Does anything appear when she casts the magic like a magic circle, runes or any type of glow of the wand or eyes? and if not would it be acceptable to make it work for the image?
Reply
:iconmikomikisomi:
MikomiKisomi Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Student Digital Artist
No, how magic works in this story is that every character has a "wand" (in quotes because it can take the form of anything handheld) and can cast 1) a blue crystal (such as the ones in the examples in the journal) or 2) their specific type of magic. Nothing else appears, but I never mind when people add their own ideas to the magic such as runes, glowing parts, etc. :)

modification as to add stuff to your characters. for example, giving your character some accessories like a neckle?
