Darkstalkers: Embrace the Dark Contest by hybridmink Darkstalkers: Embrace the Dark Contest by hybridmink
Here's the character I created for [link]. There's a good chance that link won't be good forever, so just read the title here if you get confused!

This is my version of a Dryad in the Darkstalkers universe. One of her legs is always stuck in the ground and one of her hands is enormous (for grabbing). You could say she's a grappler/zoner character that plays like a mix between Zangief and Dhalsim (extendy limbs). End of round poses include withering to a very small tree on time out, growing and eating an apple, and turning her back to the screen with all of her leaves exploding into cherry blossoms.

Thanks! But I think they're looking for the most original idea and they don't even require a drawing! Too late now though :(

'Gief and Dhalsim abilities? Sounds overpowered!

Wish I had more time to shade my submission. The Tronish yellow glowing lines do bring it to life.

Eh I think with the right speed and damage output, she would be alright. Now if she could place tree traps with those seeds, then it might be a problem.

Good luck with your entries! :)

Fantastic design, the pose is awesome and I love the yellow lines across her body as well as the bark designs. Plus the branches and leaves look great as well.

I mean it, this has great potential. I hope you don't mind, but I would suggest you give her a slightly more.....sinister look to go better with the theme (nothing TOO foreboding, but maybe a few more shadows in strategic places).

Where did you draw inspiration from?

:iconhybridmink:
hybridmink Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Well I already submitted it and I feel like any shadows changed at this point would mean revisiting the coloring of the entire piece. I see what you mean though. She's not evil so I think her expression is alright. Maybe it's more noticeable in the full sized image...

Anyways, I looked up different monsters and saw multiple interpretations of dryads. I've seen them both bulky and very tree-like but also entirely human and more like fairies. I wanted something in between and just kept adding ideas. :)
