Making covers

Hammerknight has really outdone himself this week, putting together a wonderful guide on using third-party applications to assemble a comic book cover out of your HeroMachine parts. I can’t even imagine how much effort went into putting this together, many thanks to him.

As usual, click on any of these images for a larger version.

  1. I like using Jeff’s head as the logo for “Heromachine Comics”!

  2. Ninja Cheerleaders? Cool! When is the first issue coming out? :)

  3. Thanks Niall Mor, I think it would be a cool comic, if I could just set down and write it.

  4. Yeah it would be pretty sweet, I have to agree. Now they just have to make Business Hat Ninja a comic!

  5. Hey man, nice work there. Very time consuming, but the end result was worth it…

  6. Now we need to have a comic cover contest

  7. Ok.. Now I know why I never achieve that level of complexity. I kept trying to do all that on HM3 and as awesome as the program is Jeff, it keeps crapping out on me with THAT many items. (not a complaint, just an observation)

    @HK: Thanks, I may actually try a cover when the contest comes around.

  8. I think as long as all the components are made on HM3 and no photo shopping is done(other then taking away the dotted outline),then it still is a HM3 art piece. The only thing I added to that cover was then fonts. Note; don’t take away to much of the dotted outline because the line shading is what makes the lines have a smooth look to them. I only took away the dots that were lighter then the background. That is also why I used the color that I did because it matched the edge shading. I got lucky and the outline didn’t show up much over the flames.
