Tonight was for dinos

(next week’s all Jedi)


The people all waited on YouTube with care

With hopes that a trailer soon would be there


There’s he in his t-shirt and I in my hoodie,

Waiting and hoping it would be a goody.

When from the table there came such a tither,

‘The trailer is live, it was posted on Twitter!’

Caption Contest #108

Ok guys, time for another caption contest, where you have to come with the funniest caption for a random panel of my choosing. As I'm quite into playing the new Pokemon games at the moment, the next few weeks are going to involve stills from the Pokemon anime (which has some very captionable faces to work with). This week you have to come up with the best caption you possibly can for this still:

Everyone can have a maximum of 3 entries, entries must be in by next Wednesday (Dec 6th) and All Entries Must Be PG-13.

Character Design Challenge #346– The International Legion for Justice: The Villains – Part 2.

Fire Bird was one of Japan’s deadliest weapons during WWII. She was born in 1890 with a horrifying mutation. Fire Bird  -火鳥- sprouts wings of fire and can cause destruction on a massive scale. Faster in flight than any plane at the time, she became legendary for her victories over the allied forces

Your challenge this week is to design Fire Bird.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Sunday, December 3rd at 9:00am Eastern.

This will be the last CDC of 2017.  They will resume on January 7, 2018
