Weekly Art Challenge #38 (July 12th-July 19th): Genre-Bending, part two!
So, last week the challenge was for people to make characters designed to fit as absolutely into the cliches and conventions of a single genre. Everything about their appearance and behaviour just screamed whatever genre they had picked.
Well, this week, you’re going to turn that on your head.
For this challenge, you’re going to pick someone else’s character from last week’s challenge (see all of those here), and recast them in a completely different genre. If you pick a princess from a fantasy genre, figure out how you’re going to make her into an action hero, or have her solve mysteries as a hardboiled film noir detective. On the flipside, if your character was an action hero, maybe it’s time for them to ship off into a fairytale, or a stereotypical romantic comedy.
See if you can keep as much of their character design as possible, while still making them fit the new genre, without any dissonant bits sticking out.
