  1. She’s got a real Power Girl facial expression going on here. I’d love to see your take on Power Girl – also would like to see how you’d design her costume.

    Okay, I know this is going to make me sound really really stupid (keep in mind I’m new here) but are these Sketch of the Day posts actual sketches or are they HeroMachine creations?

  4. Avatar Worf says:

    Very nice Jeff. I feel like she’s angry at something.

    And as far as Liefeld goes I just HAVE to post (repost) this:

    Sorry for reposting Jeff. I have a yearning for some kind of a reaction here. :/

    @Tool: Thanks for the “in” and making this “repost” not look like it’s TOTALLY off the subject. 🙂

    is this like the newer tv series uniform? Or is it a comics thing?

  6. Avatar Myro says:

    Doornik1142 (3): No, these are actual sketches by our Grand Overlord, Jeff Hebert.

    Nice job, Jeff.

  7. Avatar Doornik1142 says:

    Myro (6)

    Ah, okay. So then is he the one who draws all the HeroMachine pieces?

  8. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Worf, thanks for the image. Not really my thing, but pretty much any way you go would be better than a Liefeld cover, so…

  9. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    ajw, I want to say this was one of the Nineties era redesigns. Not 100% sure on the timeline but it’s from the comic.

  10. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Doornik1142, they’re hand-drawn sketches of mine. Sometimes I’ll cut and paste in an item or background element or something from HM, but that’s about it. For instance, in this one the “mental circles” are from Background-Shapes, duplicated several times and resized/repositioned as necessary to get the effect. But mostly, hand-drawn using Flash and my Wacom tablet.

  11. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    This one ended up a lot more Adam Hughes-ish than I imagined, even though I didn’t use any reference at all for it. Not sure what to make of that, but since I’m happy with the final product I guess I’ll just have to live with it.

    And yes, Doornik1142, I’m the guy that does 99% of the drawings for the items in HeroMachine (with some notable additions by dblade, MMI, and Mark Shute). And all the programming.

  12. Avatar Myro says:

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Adam Hughes, Jeff. Yeah, it’s weird that you got that result without referring to Hughes’ work as a reference, or even seeking to emulate him, but I like the way it turned out.

  13. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Oh yeah, don’t get me wrong, AH is da bomb. Love his stuff.

    Hmmm, you know, I barely noticed until that last Rob L. post went up, you draw female faces alot like him.

  15. Avatar GtaMythMaster43 says:

    Oh, and since we’re taking HM featured parts, I have a few outlines of swords, helmets and such, and I was wondering if anyone with Adobe would like to port my outlines/drawings for me, I don’t have the tools or skills to do so myself.

  16. Avatar GtaMythMaster43 says:

    I’ll post the links if I get the “ok”.
    ‘Cause I got two Helghast helmets. various gas mask remakes, a pumpkin head, a malformed Soul Edge, a hockey mask, and some random crap.

  17. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    GtaMythMaster (14): You are now dead to me.

  18. Avatar dblade says:

    @GtaMythMaster43 (16): Post the links and I’ll take a look. Better yet go to my Whiz Bang Item Dispenser forum thread and post the links there. I take the requests by other Hero Machinists there.

  19. Avatar dblade says:

    @ GtaMythMaster (14): Oh, oh. That’s like telling Batman he shares the same psychosis as the Joker.

  20. Avatar dblade says:

    I forgot to post the link to my forum thread….

  21. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Exactly, dblade. Dead, I say!

  22. Avatar Myro says:

    GtaMythmaster (14): I know I’m not supposed to insult community members in my comments, but you’re being a bit of an idiot in this one regard. Jeff revives his feature entitled “I Hate Rob Liefeld’s Art” from a long hibernation, in order to rip Liefeld’s new cover art for Hawk and Dove, and then you compare his work to Liefeld’s? Do not be surprised by Jeff’s reaction.

    Also, you’re wrong. I’m probably going to come off as a kiss-ass, and people may even question my judgement, but I’m seeing a lot more Michael Turner in Saturn Girl’s face in this sketch than Liefeld. Please also note, I’m saying “face,” because Saturn Girl’s body looks far more solid than Turner usually drew women

    I’m sorry, I forgot how awful he was.
    I take it back!!!

    Every other time I post links it “waits for moderation”….
    Ugo has such a wierd spam filter.

  26. Avatar GtaMythMaster43 says:

    I didn’t read your comment at first due to my dyslexia skipping over it, but really now? Idiot? True it was a dumb statement, and I was looking at another artists work when I said it and posted Rob L. by memory lapse. But really…
    [On to DBlade!]
    On another note, I just saw DBlade’s forum page, it was quite awesome. Loved everything he posted.

    GtaMythmaster (26): What I said was that you were “being a bit of an idiot in this regard. So, don’t think that I was saying that you’re an idiot, just that you did say something pretty stupid in that one instance. I’m glad thqt you realized the error of your ways.

  28. Avatar GtaMythMaster43 says:

    I take things to personally, thanks Myro.

  29. Avatar dblade says:

    Hey GtaMythMaster43. I put the Helghast helmet/facemask on my item voting poll. I found an asset that I will use as a reference to create the artwork for this piece. I wish I could use your artwork that you already put some time into but it will just be easier for me to start from scratch. Thanks. If I work on this piece I plan to submit it in pieces for maximum versatility. So helmet/facemask/tube.

    Here is the voting poll…

    Thank you. And, just call me Gta. It’s easier.
