Well, it's the 50th edition of Public Domain Redesign Contest! That's a golden anniversary, so I thought I'd go with a character with "golden" in the name.

The character for this contest is "Golden Arrow".

No Caption Provided

Roger Parsons' parents were killed in an arranged accident by a competitor, Braddock while Roger's dad was testing a revolutionary gas. Rodger, and he was left for dead but was saved by an old prospector, Nugget Ned. The boy grew up healthy and strong and well-skilled in all kinds of athletic endeavors, particularly archery. He coated his arrowheads with gold leaf. After Ned died, Roger dealt with Braddock. Then, using his characteristic weapon as a name (since he'd been raised in secret and was therefore unknown to the townspeople), Golden Arrow and his horse, White Wind, embarked on a heroic career. When he ran out of golden arrows he got gold for new ones from a secret mine.

Deadline is June 25. Good luck everybody! If you need more time, just let me know, and I'll extend the deadline.

@shatterstar: Can you please pin this? Thanks!

P.S. This is my first time holding a Public Domain Redesign Contest, so if I made a mistake, please feel free to tell me.

I don't usually enter these Public Domain contests, but I think I may make something for this if time allows. Great choice of character @pr_1030. :)

Yeah, this one was pretty fun. I decided to make a modern take on the premise. A crossbow instead of a standard bow, an Indian Motorcycle instead of a horse, etc. Hope you dig it. :)

@zzombie13: Woah. Love that crossbow design. I was an idiot to think that I was the only one with the idea to modernize Golden Arrow... I mean, I have a bike design too! On a side note, I'd like to commend you on your fast submission!

The bike was fun to draw. But if I'm 100% honest, I've always had trouble drawing horses. No idea why, I just can't make them look natural at all. Never have been able to do so. At this point it's probably a self-defeating thing where I've convinced myself I can't do it so I can't do it.

All that aside though, the idea of making White Wind and using part of the INDian motorcycle logo was the first thing that sprang to mind when I read the initial post. Glad you dig the crossbow. I started to do a compound bow, but realized there's literally no way to use one of those while on a bike. lol

Can't wait to see yours! :)

@zzombie13 Thanks. "I started to do a compound bow, but realized there's literally no way to use one of those while on a bike." Haha who even thinks about the logistics of shooting from a bike like that.....you do. Nice job!

Err..that's exactly what I'm working on right now. Mine has a bike and a compound bow. Let's just say he's extremely skilled?

Alright, here's mine.

Yeah, sorry about the "noones" typo. My English isn't really that bad. I'll try to find a way to color it. It's either colored pencil or digital. Does anyone know how to digitally color pencil-drawn material? I'll just edit my post when I correct my spelling.

@anbu_b_team: Oh, really sorry, I've been preoccupied with an internet ban on weekdays, so I wasn't able to look over this thread. Well, it's over at the end of the 25th I guess. If you finished your colored version before then, go ahead and post it as soon as you can. I'm really sorry guys for not looking over this thread well enough. I'll make a voting thread in a couple hours.
