HM3: Cape fronts

I am still plowing through HM2 sets that need to be converted to HeroMachine 3. I’ve just posted the new version of the old “Coats-CapeFronts” set, which can now be found in “ShoulderRight-Capes”. Here they are:

Holler in the comments if you either see something wrong, or if there are specific items you’d like to see added. Requests with links to an image of what you want are the most helpful, but please make it specific — if I want to do a Google Image Search for “Capes” or “Cloaks” so I can get twelve dozen pictures I will do so. Limit yourself to no more than three requests, otherwise I’m going to mentally mark it as “spam” and move on.

That sounds harsh. I don’t mean it that way, it’s just that sometimes too much is worse than nothing at all. So only request things you really want, I think I have a pretty solid set already and am not looking for general reference, just specific items likely to be of interest to lots of different people to flesh it out.

  1. Good stuff Mr. Hebert!

  2. Cool, these will be very useful!

    Jeff are you in the middle of a drawing spree? I mean… Do you intend to add more items soon? (These last updates made me decide to redesing a few characters, but if more items will be added soon then maybe I should wait a little :) )

    Also, do you have any plans for the first, third and last items in the Overshirt slot and CapeFronts genre from HM2.5?

  3. Yes, I am hopefully in the middle of a spurt of productivity, with more items coming soon. Once I’m done with everything if there are specific missing items that didn’t get converted I will try to go back and add them, depending on the item.

  4. ok Jeff id love to see some steam punk capes and cloaks like somthing out og cogs and gears and chains but somthing like the 3 links work too i just want steampunk http://img.coplusk.net/projects/0003/3833/cloak7_1272349232.jpg http://www.sharpe-designs.com/dragonesque-clothing-cloaks2.htm

  5. Looking good! These will be useful.

    Wow, a lot of possibilities here. I like the way most of these drape or hang.

    Jeff, I think I noticed something worth mentioning. Take a look at this link and you’ll see what I mean.

    Sorry I posted this is the wrong thread initially. A poncho front would work well here.

  8. @MMI – It says the picture has been moved or deleted for me.

    LOL @The Eric; that’s great! Perfect. Even better than the one I found.

    @Oquies; that is weird; I just copied and pasted the link. Apparently it somehow produced a typo. I must have fat fingers syndrome.

  10. MMI (#6): That’s intentional. It’s modeled on Captain Marvel’s.

  11. Me, Myself & I

    OK, fair enough.

    At last! I’ve been trying to dig up some of these items on HM3 for ages (STILL drawing and re-drawing my favorite character….)

  13. Could the animal drapped across, with the head resting on a single shoulder be considered a cape? That could be cool.
    A lion?
    A Wolf?
    A Goat?

  14. Have you plan a revamp of the shoulders items of the HM 2.5 ?

  15. For the most part those are already done in various other places, Fabien — shoulder harnesses, cape fronts, etc. There are two or three that don’t have direct analogs that I need to bring over at some point though.

  16. Ok, I have some requests:

    Ghillie suit:

    Medieval Cloak:

    Also, thanks for the nice update Jeff!

  17. That ghillie suit picture is quite small, here’s a larger one:

  18. A lot of these, like the ghillie suit for instance, are more what I would consider full tops rather than Cape Fronts. I envision this particular set as being the front portion of a full cape, not full capes or outfits in and of themselves necessarily.

  19. i would love to see another hand crossbow and a pilgrims steepled hat for a witch hunter style character

  20. nice cape ideas, but one question i have is could we get more female tops that are “sexier” (i.e. v necks, cleavage, etc.)? also can we get some more types of male and female legwear such as pants, shorts, cargos, etc.?

  21. I like the stuff for the males, but we need more tops for females. Especially coats. Maybe more neck wear such as chokers. I always liked Black Canary and jackets would be nice.
