"THE NEW RECRUIT" CONTEST

Hey guys!
I think it's time I did a new contest! It's been a while since I've done one and I've come up with such an awesome Contest idea that I'd love for all of you to take part in! :la:
The theme is for you guys to make a new crew member for Andromeda's ship! A new sci-fi buddy to travel with them across the stars and fighting bad guys and bringing serenity to desolate planets! I hope to see some amazing ideas from you guys, I know I'll love your creations! <3
What I will be doing with your characters, if you allow me, is drawing them with the rest of the crew, and eventually writing short stories about the crew of the SSV Zorya… because I secretly love writing xD When (and if) I do, then I'll be asking for your input, how to write the character and asking for any ideas you'd want to put into the stories too! ^^


There will be a first place winner, and then two runners-up, chosen by your judges:
:bulletpink: Judge for First Place: :iconm-3-1:
:bulletpink: Judge for Second Place :iconaerinboy:
:bulletpink: Judge for Third Place :icontokibuni:

DEADLINE IS THE 9th DECEMBER!!

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE RULES!
"Andromeda and her crew work on a starship called the SSV Zorya, and they need a new crew member to join their ranks! What will your character's job be? Will they be in the weapons room priming the guns and keeping up with the ammo? Will they be busy in the infirmary, checking the injured? Or would they even be in the kitchen, making sure the crew got healthy and nutritious meals? xDD"

RULES AND INFO
:bulletpink: They can be either male or female!
:bulletpink: Try and make their outfit look sci-fi so they fit in with the crew! ^_^ and remember to try and make their outfit apply to their job too! Like Sephy has all her gadgets and Karya has the equipment to help her garden…
:bulletpink: The character needs to have at least three colours to their outfit; like Andromeda's is pink, white and blue, Persephone's is black, silver and blue etc. Don't ask why… xD
:bulletpink: Try and think logically; would it be a good idea for a character to have super long hair in space? Would it be a good idea for the character to be wearing extra skimpy clothing? Try and keep in mind that although they need to be attractive they also need to be practical xDD
:bulletpink: I don't want black and white pictures or just line art; I don't mind if it's a sketch or a full on digital picture, traditional or a reference sheet, just so long as it has COLOUR!
:bulletpink: The character can either be a human, a cyborg, a robot, an alien, anything! So long as they're relatively humanoid xDD and remember: it's supposed to be sci-fi! So no fantasy or medieval etc. characters!
:bulletpink: I'm sorry, I'm really not keen on furries xD I guess if it's like Chewy then it's not too bad, but I really don't like the wolf/human, sonic the hedgehog stuff I see… xD
:bulletpink: Please, no outrageous or made-up names for your characters! Be subtle, I really dislike the type of sci-fi where characters have names like "zoryog" or "twilek" or "galaxor" etc.  >.<
:bulletpink: You can do whatever you want with your characters! You choose how they'll be integrated into the crew, how they all meet, even if you want one of them to be the boyfriend/girlfriend of one of them! Just make sure you put it into the "Other" section of the form I need you to put into the description! (below)
:bulletpink: They can be whatever race you want! They can be from the same planet as of one of the crew, or you can create your own! Just please, DON'T take an already pre-existing race, e.g. Turian from Mass Effect, Wookie from Star Wars, Romulans from Star Trek…
:bulletpink: Those who are donating a prize/prizes can still enter the contest too!
:bulletpink: You can have a maximum of three entries!
:bulletpink: Please NOTE me your entry! If you send it to me any other way I will still accept it, it'll just be easier for me to sort through them via note ^^
:bulletpink: The winner will still hold rights to their character - i'll be drawing artwork of them will full credit to their owner, and if i do end up writing stories then i'll ask the winner for input about their character and if they have any ideas for stories too! ^^
:bulletpink: After several people asked me if there was a Janitor job or not, there isn't, there a little robots on the ship that keep it clean ^^
:bulletpink: Judges cannot enter
:bulletpink: Those that enter more than one entry only get the chance to win one place
:bulletpink: Please, in your contest entry picture's description, put this form in it (below). I need to know a lot about the character you've created; like would they get on with the crew or would they be a total ass-hole? xDD I don't want to have to tell you that you haven't put it in the description because you couldn't be bothered to read the rules ¬_¬
