Hey, if you're still looking for characters with swords, feel free to use Earl the Archangel from <a href="http://dimbulbcomics.com/d/20040310.html">Crooked Halo</a>. He just got himself a brand spankin' new flaming sword of righteousness.

I can't imagine why you'd want to, but you have my permission to use my main character Skunk and his sword, Wasabi-san. Just try not to make him look like he knows what he's doing.

Cricket says he's from Crooked Halo, and that's where he started (he IS Cricket's character), but he's practically our bloody mascot at Dim Bulb, so there's several different takes on him (two different from me plus his current version in CH AND the original flat-top version....old Earl....man of many faces...or hairstyles).

Not at all. In fact I would like his/her tits to be as big as possible.

For your kind consideration.
Hemi would have to use a one-handed weapon, but he's strong enough for a No Dachi, I think.

Ok, thats 17 total people counting mine. Guess I gotta cut it off now, thanks everybody! I'll try to get some time to practice on all these people, actual fights are a couple updates away, thank god...

Here's my first sketches, hopefully you can recognize your characters:

Close? I'm starting on the other characters too, going down in order posted. Incidently, that armor was a pain in the ass to draw. I need to figure out some armor shorthand or something... Also, can you tell I like drawing girls more?

Yes, very well done. I'm learning that it's always fun to see one of your characters as drawn by someone else.

If you're asking for more concrete feedback, my only minor suggestion would be that Rosemary Ripley's hair might be a little longer in back. Even if that's not how it comes across in my strips, I've pictured it as almost reaching her shoulders.

At least she isn't wearing elaborate armor. :)

At the pace I'm going, my characters will arrive at the tournament site next week, with actual fights starting the week after, assuming I'm able to update and am not flooded with school work...

Just a quick update in case anybody thinks I forgot. I have the tournament bracket all set up. Some of your fights may be breezed through, but they will get "air time" so to speak. The fights are in order:

Joe vs. Elisa
Skunk vs. Earl
Lord Langfordance vs. Jeff
Pimpette vs. Galad
Rosemary vs. Haruka
Alicia vs. Jeremy
Isahn vs. Sam
Woman Man vs. Brooke

The method used to determine fights was, I had windows media player play through a list of 16 songs on random, and assigned each character to a song. Seemed to work pretty well, and I only had to adjust one matchup. Hemi was unfortunately cut from the tournament itself due to numbers, but I'll get him in there somewhere. First fight will sorta be in the next update (some point tonight hopefully...)
