I have decided to do a test run of the pop quiz contest to see if people are interested in seeing it return. Based on how well this one does will determine on weather this function returns or now. Now since I can not do this on the weekend as it used to be done, it will be more then a single day contest and will be one week long, however it will remain a single entry contest.
So for this first new Pop Quiz I want you to design a character based on one of the two following poses:
You can either recreate the pose on your own, or use the text strings located here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/poses/custom-poses-by-ams/#p12027 ( A big thanks to AMS for creating these poses )
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine forums,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- All entries most be created using HeroMachine 3.0, No photo-shopping of the image except for basic cropping and the adding of simple boarders.
- The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
- Images most conform to all normal HeroMachine.com rules.
- Entries are limited to One (1) per person.
As noted above the new pop quiz will grant you a full week to create your image as I can not post and Judge this contest on the weekends do to my Real Life Job, Therefore you have until 1pm Eastern time Tuesday March 11th 2014 to submit your entry. Good luck Everyone!
I recently completed another commissioned illustration for an awesome guy currently serving the US overseas. Here is the description we started with:

knighthawk: Dude, Cheech and Chongs fireplace!
KatmirStone: “We need a better secret make-out spot, Peter.”
Hammerknight: “Hey! What did you do with Santa?”
Of those five, the winner is …………………….
I’ve just returned from a space trip to the Croa and brought along some souvenirs from their trophy room. Hopefully they do not notice that something is missing.
These helmets can now be found in Headgear/Modern. Enjoy!
@Marvel shared this on Twitter today and I thought I’d pass this information on to our community here:

For this weeks challenge I want you guys to design an awesome gadget or machine. I don’t want robots, but more along the lines of everyday mundane objects made cooler, so for example you could do a steampunk coffee-machine or a futuristic pair of shoes, that sort of thing. You don’t have to create a character to go with the gadget, I’ll be judging solely on the gadget/ machine it’s self. I’ll be interested to see what you guys come up with.
As usual, no entry limit and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. 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.
This week’s item is a prize won by Extremely Epic for his second place finish in Character Design Contest #57: Energy Blaster. The first place winner Mad Jack generously gave the item prize to Extremely Epic.
The head pieces can be found in Headgear/Military, while the neck piece can be found in Neckware/Standard
This weeks poll got the highest turn out for any CDC (not including the Character Of The Year contest) and one creator ran away with it from the start. And that creator was MadJack for his aliens the Croa. Congratulations MadJack, I’ll let you sort out what will happen with the prize for this weeks contest, and well done to everyone who entered.
