**Designers: feel free to sketch only one character (your choice..) for qualifying round if you would prefer vs both. You will be asked to create both characters in the final round but we will buy the designs if you do not win. **
**IMPORTANT** Please make sure you read the design brief and particularly the character bios before submitting any work :)
Also, please do feel free to create a character concept design based on your vision that comes to you when you read the character bios, but do pay attention to key features that are called out in the bios (such as appearance traits, etc).
Also, also, we offer 1-1 projects to the final stage designs at the end of the contest to buy your design. In other words, if your design is picked for the final round, but is not the final winning design, there’s still some money in it for your work. We felt it was a fair thing to do given the design. Read the design brief for details.
