    I just thought. Don't we usually have the vote for the next challenge going on whilst the submissions are being posted? or is that just my brainium playing tricks with me?

    Usually we do, Seraphyn. But sometimes there's a really close call between the winner and second-place in those polls, and then I just run with the runner-up for the next round. So, the next challenge will be the... EVIL MUTANT COMET WARRIORS!

    My own is about a year old and before I saw the star on his forehead. I drew him as younger, and possibly a relation to He-Ro.

    Interesting. How come you chose to make him younger tho? Or is this perhaps when he's just starting out, with his calling to watch all of Eternia? Really like how you made the colour-scheme here dude, mixing in some gold with the blue and PURPLE. Purple is often utilized mostly for villains, it would seem.

    I see that you also sort of added the star there. Something is a-glowin' underneath that hair-fringe of his.

    Scrollos
    Real name: unknown
    Age: unknowable
    Very little is know about the mysterious watcher and record keeper of Eternian History. He is almost never seen except glimpsed from the corner of the eye and then almost always mistaken for somebody else. The sorceress knows his true identity and is glad. Glad that the risk taken is not in vain and that the strength of grayskull will forever live on, even if it's champion may not.
    Super-great colouring man! It just binds everything up and the character finally comes truly to life. Excellent job.

    I see that you also kept his mystery in your bio, only revealing the smallest smidgen more about the legend of Scrollos.

    sort of i think the costume pretty much gives away who it's supposed to be though . I only added a few 'souvenirs' from Eternias history. If it gets through to the next round i might ruin it by giving it all away

    Good eye about the star! I made him appear young because I'd designed him to go in the same continuity as the Keeper of Time, a wise bearded immortal gar who possesses all the knowledge of eternity. I saw Scrollos as more of a student, seeking to learn more and sharing what he learns as he goes. He might appear, like the Watcher in Marvel comics, to He-Man with an urgent mission that he's just learned about himself, while the Keeper of Time wouldn't talk to anyone unless they came to him first. Also, I thought it'd be a little different to have a younger looking character in a role associated with knowledge. He's not quite as young as he looks, but he has a young and eager spirit. I agree, purple tends to be used on villains more in MOTU.

    I think it's important to keep Scrollos' face obscured as he was in the comics.

    I think I'm liking Seraphyn's to most so far.

    WHOAAAH!!

    We've actually gone past the two week deadline several days ago! And not even I noticed...

    Well, I'm putting on an automatic one-week extra on the deadline, because I happen to know that there are a few guys who said they are working on a Scrollos, so I would like to see them get it done.

    One of those guys are actually... ME! Yeah, I've got this simple addition to Scrollos design that I've had in my mind for the longest time. Guess it's about time I got that out of my system.

    NEW DEADLINE IS SATURDAY THE TENTH (10) OF SEPTEMBER!

    hopefully this is in time?

    here's my entry (even though i think Seraphyn's will annihilate everyone else in the polls!)



    The reference pictures of Scrollos all had slightly different color schemes, but almost all of them included some element of blue/cyan or purple/magenta. However, the picture that struck me the most had an all-green color scheme. At first I tried to combine the various color schemes, but that was too complex a task for me. I settled on the green scheme, which I'm content with.

    On the whole, everything in the picture is supposed to give a sense of a character who is powerful, but aloof and preoccupied with knowledge and information. The floating scrolls and holographic displays are there to emphasize the contrast between science fiction and fantasy that makes me so fond of MOTU. Inserting some of my previous art into the holographic displays took me a surprisingly long time. Hopefully the details are visible enough to warrant the time spent.

    My favorite until now... I like the way he reads is scrolls... remind me some comics and cartoons that I used to inspire me to do this picture:



    But I have to say all the Scrollos I┤ve seen until now are superb and this will be a difficult round to vote.

    Bak-or I think you nailed it!

    Bootleg, awesome! I love the 3D displays!

    I tried out mine with the shadow mask kind of feature, but I think he just looks like he's in black face.


    I'll stand by my version with his face intact. I don't think the shadow effect defines the character, I see that as just a tease for his eventual reveal.

    Hey! nicking my 'Star-Shadow'tm effect and making it look better is just not on

    I quite like it though... but your original is still best.

    Yes, all mine now, muahahaha! But no, the effect looks so much better on yours, mine's just an imitation.

    You're definitely in time! I've been busy with a deadline for a fanzine I'm a co-editor of so I missed that this was the deadline I set myself...

    I've been working a little bit on an entry myself, but it's not done yet, I'm afraid. Thinking about opting out and letting the rest of you guys finally get to the deadline.
    ( mine only changes a few details, but alas...)

    Is there anyone else there anyone else that wants a shot at Scrollos, or do we call it a day?

    Nice drawings but if his face isn't obscured by shadow or like what gbagok did then it's not Scrollos to me.


    Can folks please, REMBER TO REMOVE THE IMAGE WHEN QUOTING ON THE SAME PAGE!!!
    There are certain folks who consistantly do it despite warnings.

    Nah. I'm keeping it open until I can get my own entry in. But I've got one heckuva' cold, three comic-pages and one cover to get trough before I can do that...

    FINALLY DONE!!

    I've been struggling with both work( internship, really. Not actually hired...) and the stuff I do for a fan-mag called Swedish Super-Comics which I'm an assistant Editor of.

    But, tonight I finally got an opening so my design of Scrollos is finished. With this piece also comes a promise: I will never ever hold up a challenge like this again. If I have an idea that I want to show, I won't do a drawing like this. Either I'll just disqualify myself ( which IMHO, is of course how it should be) or I'll just write a little bit of text.



    So! Ready for the polls, lads?

    PS: I forgot to write it in, but the circuit-pattern inside his cloak is a matrix that absorbs cosmic energy and converts it into energy that can sustain him. He needs neither food nor water because of it, allowing him to observe 24/7.

    I love Scrollos (the name sounds strange in italian language...).
