Terminal Knees

Watson Bradshaw requested a set of legs that would terminate at the knees, as if the character were kneeling. Since that’s been requested by lots of folks, I thought it would be wise to go ahead and publish the first pass at it for general comment, though since it’s Watson’s prize he gets the final word. Here’s the screen grab of it:


It’s now live in “Body-Male-Standard” and once we get it finalized (i.e. Watson says he likes it), I’ll do a set for the female body as well. Let me know what you think, changes you think it needs to be fully functional, etc. I put in one for the left and one for the right leg.

  1. these are sweet but i wish u could see the legs in the back, also can we get some more normal shoes that you would see i enjoy making characters an then copying and then making them modified in my sketches also i know i am asking 4 a lot but this is a really cool game and maybe some different pants and things

  2. I think the terminal knee is a good idea, but I pictured it more as though someone were standing on their knees. If that were the case, I think they would be more rounded. This isn’t my prize, so I can’t really say.

    these look fantastic, Thanks a lot Jeff :)

  4. Great! I’ll consider them done, then.

  5. This will make my Captain Morgan poses much, MUCH easier. :)

  6. Cool!

  7. Hi there

    i just started using your heromachine app and i think its a very very very cool idea. I had a question though, is there anyway to just hide the parts of items if you dont need them. Im just using this and all those parts just mess with my mind a little bit haha. And how can i get 2 items from the same drop down box? I saw like a couple things i wanted to put together but i could only pick 1.

    And also if there is a way to put a stomach with a six pack i would love that for my warrior guy im making right now

    thanks keep up the good work. I love this :D

  8. Hi NewGuy! Assuming you’re using HeroMachine 3, hiding just portions of one complete item is a bit tricky. Basically you need to add something like a big square from the Insignia-Standard set, position and scale it so it’s covering everything of the item you WANT to see, leaving the bit you DON’T want to see hanging outside of it. Then click the main item you’re wanting to work on, click the Mask button, and then click the square Insignia. You’ll see the bit you did NOT want disappear, while the bits covered by the square will still be there. Finally, click on the square and set color1, color2, and color3 all to 0% alpha (the slider just above the color boxes).

    To get two items from the same drop down box, click the “Multiples” radio button just to the right of the drop down boxes.

  9. While this isn’t a request thread, can I add that I’d like to see a similar item, but with the bottom part of the leg, with the knee on top. It may work well to make someone who’s seated, or someone half-kneeling with one foot on the ground.
