HM3: The hands of a good woman

I'm very happy to announce the release of the latest set of items for the HeroMachine 3 Alpha -- HandRight Female! They're just like the male set only, you know, for the female template, properly positioned, rotated, and scaled for your ease of use. Many of them are redrawn to look more feminine, too, with more slender fingers, longer nails, and fewer interior lines.

Niall, if I don't get at least one SQUEE out of you, I'll be crushed.

Next up, Instruments! If you have requests for specific musical items you want to see, let me know in the comments. Also, holler if the Hands present a problem.

    Maybe a drum like this?

    I think the existing belt components would be fine for a kind strap, but it would need drumsticks πŸ™‚

    Just to point out, the Electrical guitar in Solander’s post is a bass (Only 4 strings).

  5. Avatar The Eric says:

    You know those guitars, that are like, double guitars? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_guitar

    Bagpipes. Sitars. Classical guitars. Bugles. Lutes. Lyres. Harps. Flutes.

    Also, the uncurled tentacle Hand doesn’t cover the wrist, making it look weird.

    Will we ever get power tool?

  8. Avatar Hammerknight says:

    Jeff, I can’t believe you left out the most important hand of all, the on the hip with attitude hand.

  9. Avatar Matt says:

    After months of asking you and reminding you, all I can say now is… At F-ing Last!
    But in all seriousness thanks for puting them up

  18. Avatar kingmonkey says:

    My favourite instrument is the jug– just a big ol’ moonshine jug with three Xs on it. It’s time for a HMoedown!

  19. Avatar Jigglypuff says:

    What about a Shamisen?

    http://www.jccc.on.ca/workshops/shamisen.htm

    It might be a good idea to include it as well

  20. Avatar mental joe says:

    Much as its not instruments, I was wondering about when we’re likely to see rifles?

  21. Avatar Danny Beaty says:

    1. dijeredoo

    2. ukelele

    3. kazoo

    4. steel guitar

    5. harp (the big kind like Harpo Marx played)

    6. spoons

    7. xylophone

    8. A pipe organ made of human bones and skulls

    9. An organ with blood stains on the keyboard (think of “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken”).

    10. conga drum (Babalooooo!)

  22. Avatar Jake says:

    I’ve tried posting my list, but it isn’t showing up.

  23. Avatar Jake says:

    Never mind. I see it.

  24. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Jake, comments with multiple links in them get sent either to a holding queue (in which case you get a little notice) or the Spam queue (in which case you do not). Either way, I approve them manually when I check the admin tool, but it can be a while before I head in there. Sorry for the confusion.

  25. Avatar Gene says:

    Maybe include some instrument parts, like weapon parts, so people could either make their own, or make instruments out of other items.

  26. Avatar Gero says:

    I didn’t read through the rest of the comments, so if anyone posted this already, sorry. But Id like to see a pungi:

    I’m working on a character that could really use this;

    And if you give me it I will love you for ever. πŸ˜€

  29. Avatar Jake says:

    @Anarchangel: I’m sure that if we get the neck of a guitar, you could rig something together with the existing axe heads.

  30. Avatar Anarchangel says:

    Good point Jake.

  31. Avatar Gene says:

    lol, I was actually gonna suggest guitars shaped like axes, dragon’s etc. But figured if Jeff could give us some parts, then that would be better.

    And if we get parts, we could make a saxauitar, or a guituba or something. πŸ™‚

  32. Avatar Anarchangel says:

    It didn’t even occur to me that I could do that until Jake pointed it out. Talk about a blonde moment. πŸ™‚
