OCT Comics and Characters

What is an OCT?

You might be wondering this: O.C.T. stands for Original Character Tournament.
How it (usually) works is: You submit an OC you have created following some theme or criteria and are then matched up against someone else who did the same.
Each of you then create a comic featuring both of your characters, and whoever is judged the winner once the deadline is up has their comic considered canon.
While everything here is from comic tournaments, some OCTs also include other mediums such as animation and prose.
