Congratulations as well to the winner of the first West Coat Avengers bracket, "Flame Knight!" His creator will also receive their choice of a portrait or any item for HM3 inclusion.

    Ok, I have a slight problem, when I submitted my characters for this contest I selected the wrong version of Jenel, I have a hm2.5 version and a newer HM3 version of the character, and I had intended to send the HM3 version, but as you can see I sent in the HM2.5 version by mistake. I have sent Jeff the correct version, but at this point I don’t know if it is fair to ask him to change it as there have been votes in this round already.

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    I think I updated the picture Kaldath, PollDaddy said it can take ten minutes or so to refresh on the site, we’ll see if that took. There are only seven votes so far so hopefully the impact will be small.

    Alright, here’s my votes:

    3-1: Here I went with the Barbarian Queen. I thought that Tyggr was just too busy. I get that he’s supposed to be an adventurer back in the olden days, and those guys needed to pack lots of supplies, but I still didn’t like it.

    3-2: I chose Lonely Wolf. This was probably my toughest decision out of all the FNFs so far. Both are really good entries, but in the end, I went with Wolf because of the unique helmet that appears to be made of at least 4 items, all working together in sync.

    WCA: There are too many in this one to go into detail on why I picked who I did, so I’ll just say who I picked and leave it at that. I chose Scarab.

    Good luck to the 4 remaining entrants, and congratulations on getting so far!

    Whoops, just saw the new Jendel. I guess from tomorrow ’til next Friday, I’ll be voting for it, since it still has the unique color scheme, but now also has a multi-item helmet, which was the only advantage Wolf had over it…

    Thank you very much Jeff

    And the race is on.

    Warrior woman YES !

  8. William A. Peterson says:

    Even with the updated picture, I prefer “Lonely Wolf”…
    Jendel is just too busy for my tastes.

  9. John says:

    1 – Barbarian Queen. She’s got some character. Her opponent feels a bit too generic.
    2 – Lonely Wolf. Wow. VERY well done. One of the best entries of FNF thus far.

    WCA – Scarab. Very cool. Well done.

    A punk pixie! Love it! Once I know who to credit I’d like to make a copy.

    Good bunch of characters this week.
    1- Barbarian Queen. Of the two she seems better put together.
    2- Lonely Wolf. I love the detail on the face. The purple on the sword threw me off a bit, but overall the character works.

    WCA- This one was harder. There are some really good ones here. So far the favorites seem to be between Calin and Scarab. I have to say I did NOT vote for Calin because (call me picky) but it drives me crazy when people leave off ears. I know, who cares? I do. It is attention to detail that I look for in a character. So who did I pick? haven’t decided yet.

  12. Jeff Hebert says:

    I have to say, I am really digging the comments about why you all like the ones you like, that’s something I find totally fascinating.

  13. MegaGoober says:

    Wow… for the runner-ups, I actually, UN-BIASED…LY (whatever) voted for mine, after fully viewing and considering all the others! I’m not telling… if you know me, you know which one it is.

  14. The Imp says:

    Hercules looks completely bad-ass, but is it just me, or is he cross-eyed?

  15. Vaxx says:

    How did he do the thing with lonely wolf’s fingers so the grip looked right?

  16. MartianBlue says:

    Tryggr Erlingsson vs. Barbarian Queen
    Vote ; Barbarian Queen
    Why ; A very unique design, attention to detail, and facial wise, she looks more realistic. Overall a great design

    Jenel La’Damor DeCaye vs. Lonely Wolf
    Vote ; Lonely Wolf
    Why ; Both are amazing, a great pairing, I like parts of each better than the other, but due to a wider range of colors, I choose Lonely Wolf, but both are very solid.

    WCA ; Hercules
    I liked a few of these entrants, my favorites were Scarab and Hercules, but preference wise, I went with Hercules.

    Overall ; Hercules, although Barbarian Queen and others are just as good.

    Congratulations to those continuing on in FNFs, and I wish you all the best of luck.

    @Imp, he’s not suppose to be cross-eyed, but I noticed that aswell, lol. Now that I’ve gotten a bit better with HM3, I might revisit him, and finely tune a few things.

    I have to admit, that I’ve voted for my own characters in the contest, but it was because I liked their overall designs better than that of their opponents, not saying mine where better, just that I personally preffered them. With that said, I did think there were better entrants in each round.

    My Entrants
    The Rock (The Rook) Win
    Nova (Nelson Nova) Lose
    Hercules ???
