Hello, I am Blaknite, one of the new mods of the group, I am a character designer, 3D modeler, animator, and one of the new mods in this group. *waves* Characters are my passion and I adore seeing them come to life.
We new admins of the group were asked nicely to give suggestions to group activities. My suggestion is a character creation contest. Basically it is simple, create a character that best fits into the guidelines of the contest. As this group is full of people who are at different levels of skill in different types of skills this will not simply be a 'who can draw the prettiest' character contest. It will also be for creating the character's background, personality, things the character likes and dislikes, the various things that make a character believable.
The rules are very simple
Play nice, do not tell others that their character is bad, instead encourage them with questions that might help them improve their characters.
Do not copy another character in any blatant way. Obviously there are tons of characters in the world and similar ideas can happen, if you are called out on it, find a way to change it so it isn't as noticeable
Follow the theme and incorporate all aspects into your character, these aspects can be visual or written character traits.
Make sure that at the end of the contest you have met all the requirements to get the maximum number of points so you can do the best in the contest.

Image- as it sounds a picture of what the character looks like
The image can be a drawing, cosplay photo, doll, or any other means that shows the character's physical appearance.
The image must be a full body shot on a boring background, other shots of the character, like expressions and turn arounds are welcome as well.
Biography - A description of the character's past, family, what they like and dislike, their strengths and weaknesses the more in depth the better.
Personality - A description or short narrative on who the character is. Around 500 words would be ideal to get a sense of the character.
