Have you ever wished you could see the character you’ve imagined drawn out in perfect detail by a professional artist, but you just don’t have the skill to do it yourself?
Thanks to HeroMachine, now if you can imagine it, you can create it, absolutely free. With thousands of hand-drawn custom-colorable line art, you can outfit any character from any genre. Whether you’re an RPGer who wants to bring a character sketch to the game, a novelist who wants to capture that perfect face to refer to as you write, or a gamer who wants a more comics-style rendering of your warrior, ninja, wizard, or archer, HeroMachine can bring that illustration to life.
Just choose the type of item you want, click on it to add it to the canvas, and choose your colors. In minutes you can build your very own customized, beautiful character sketch.
Well that was a disappointing turnout for the poll. Considering the quality of the entrants, to not even get 90 votes is rubbish. I can’t even say that people saw that the winner was running away with the vote and so they didn’t vote, because he only won by 14 votes. I don’t know.
Anyway, this weeks winner, by the aforementioned number of votes and picking up his first CDC win in the process, was Skoul for his piece HeatStroke. Congrats Skoul and well done to everyone who entered.
As you can tell, I’ve moved back to the old theme — the new one was woefully underperforming. Sorry for all the changes, but I reckon this one will remain for quite a while, as it’s certainly proven itself to be … superior.
Gonna be a condensed COTW this week unfortunately, due to me being very short on time. But it’s not like there’s a lot that needs to be said about this one anyway, nor is there much that can be said, due to the fact that it is very hard to speak when ones jaw is on the floor. I mean look at how the pose was put together, the masking that makes up the torso is incredible and the same for the helmet. The entire thing just screams action. Job well done.
It is time once again for our bi-weekly caption contest. This week I am going to continue the experiment started two weeks ago and present you with another Gif to caption. This time our scene in from the Anime “A Certain Scientific Railgun” :
The normal rules apply, which are: You are limited to Three (3) entries which are due by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday August 4th. Of course I as always expect you to keep your entries no worse than PG-13 in nature and that you follow all the normal rules of the forum when writing your caption for the above image. That being said I wish you all Good luck!
Hey all, I’m giving the new design another few days, but at this point it has cratered ad revenue. If it doesn’t start to equalize a little, I’m going back to the old design. Just a heads-up so you don’t get whiplash too bad if it happens.
Ok guys, last week I gave you freedom to pretty much do anything you wanted. This week is going to be much the same. However, you can only use items from one category for your entry. For example, you could only make a picture using items from the Items-Right category, or you could make a picture from items from the Heads category. This should make for some interesting results.
As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
