To celebrate the novel’s upcoming release, I’m holding a character symbols tournament biweekly through to late September, right before book launch. Vote for your favourite character symbols in all of the sketch rounds, and the two most voted symbols from each round will go on to the revision round to become fully realized pieces of art.
Week of July 12: Competitors round 1 of 2
Week of July 26: Competitors round 2 of 2
Week of August 9: Leila, Naomi, and the Sisters
Week of August 23: Brontes and the Senators (note that I won’t be doing ALL of them)
Week of September 6: Misc. Palace Staff
Week of September 20: Top 10 designs revision round part 1 of 2
Week of September 27: Top 10 designs revision round part 2 of 2
Round 2: Competitors 2 of 2
Isaac, The Jester
We don’t spend a lot of time with Isaac, so I just went with the obvious: a jester’s hat. I am wondering, though, why a peasant type character in a world modeled on ancient Rome is titled The Jester. Is comedy a career option in Thessen, or is that the only significant thing about his personality?
Hansel, The Poet
The Poet was probably quite familiar with a pen and ink in his life before the Sovereign’s Tournament, so that’s what I’ve decided to represent him with: a feather quill dip pen resting in a well of ink.
Caesar, The Regal
It just felt right to make The Regal’s symbol as in-your-face as possible, so I put a crown on a lion. Captain Obvious, much? Yes.
Beau, The Adonis
The Adonis is a beautiful man with very little between his ears. The lights are on, but nobody’s home! I’ve chosen to represent him with the astrological symbol for “adonis,” but an alternate you can vote for by specifying in your comments is an Adonis dragonfly.
Enzo, The Dog
A foreign entrant in the tournament, The Dog is a bit of a wildcard. He’s big, he’s tough, he’s an inconsistent ally, and he’s most certainly not here to win the Savior’s hand if you catch my drift…
I’ve chosen to represent The Dog with a basic guard dog type breed shown in profile.
Antaeus, The Giant
All right, so… I forgot to draw The Giant during my filming session and it was late, so here’s a quick track pad digital art stick man rendition of what I planned for his concept. Remember that winning designs do go to redesign. It wouldn’t just be a prettier version of these sloppy stick figures.
Flynn, The Prince
Tobias’ early ally, and mostly one of the good guys, The Prince was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and he has no idea what the 99% live like. I’ve chosen to represent him with an intricate crown.
Orion, The Hunter
Even the latest official character portrait for Orion features a bow and arrow, so did I really have any other choice? The Hunter is one of my favourites, and I’d really love to make a sexy Robin Hood type portrait for him…
Lucian, The Cetus
I have no idea what the title “Cetus” is meant to imply, but it’s awful close to cetacean, so here’s an orca, also known as a killer whale.
Garrick, The Brave
The Brave, as it turns out, is not so brave. His symbol needed to be not quite what it appears, so instead of a regal lion like The Regal, this lion is actually a moose.
Cast Your Votes Now!
Remember, the two symbols with the most votes from each round move on to the revision round, where I will create 10 fully realized pieces of art. Vote in this poll (you can come back and vote daily if you wish) and get more votes in by commenting on YouTube and visiting my posts for this round on my social media platforms.
Voting on all rounds closes at the end of the day on September 17, 2020, so that I have time to create the winning 10 pieces.
