Prize updates

As you can tell, I've been focused over the last week trying to complete the outstanding prizes for the various contests. According to my list I owe specific prizes to:

  1. Unstable: Quarian space gloves
  2. AMS: Stonebourne pic and 3/4 view female leg
  3. Alvacascus: Batik pattern
  4. Kytana: Treasure chest
  5. Cliff: Satyr legs
  6. Martian Blue: Character illustration
  7. Tool: Mask
  8. Kaldath: Cyborg centaur body
  9. DiCicatriz: Color character sketch

I also have Zyp (x2), Papa Krok, Watson Bradshaw, Marquis Samedi, and Martian Blue down for "Next item up" from the Replacement Prize list. Which is:

The yellow highlighted items are ones I committed to originally. A green line through it means I've already done it. Since we have six "next prize up" prizes, that means I'm now slated to do Mecha parts, Quarian space suit parts, Chain Sword, Sci-Fi armor, Earrings, and a side-view hand. If dblade has already done some of those, I'm cheating and counting them as if I did them. Ha!

I am still waiting prize requests from dblade (x3), Phatchick, AMS, Worf, Loki, Frevoli, LoneWolf6155, Frankie (x2), Nick Hentschel, Papa Krok, RhinoMan, Fuzztone, and FRM.

If I missed you, let me know.

    so, for a prize i can choose a sketch or a HM3 item, correct?

  2. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    That’s correct, FRM.

  3. Avatar TOOL says:

    I know you guys that are doing the items are busy, but you have been doing a great job with sending us our prizes and request in awesome fashion. Keep it coming, at your convenience of course LOL

  4. Avatar Gene says:

    I’ve got an outstanding one – I sent you some images to work off of and you wanted to get permission from the original artist. If you don’t hear back soon, I’ll change to something else.

  5. Avatar Myro says:

    I had requested my portrait as the prize for winning Caption Contest 116, shortly before your laptop got stolen. If you want me to resend my picture, let me know.

  6. Avatar FRM says:

    for my prize i would like a HM3 item: the clothes of a veni-yan monk (from Bone, by Jeff Smith [a graphic noval series]) in pieces (hood, hood ribbons, torso stuff, etc.)
    is a whole shtick like that too much to request?

    He’s the most powerful hero in my campaign universe with Cosmic level strength and energy blasts. Stoic and steadfast. I don’t need a background.

    For a second prize I would like a character sketch of Ms. Amazing…

    One of the iconic heroes of the setting, she has Incredible strength, hyper flight and awesome telepathic powers. She is commanding and passionate, and often butts heads with the government organization that funds the super group she leads. I don’t need a background for this one either.

    Jeff (or dblade, I guess), I think we’re gonna need some female gloves at some point. Not sure if you’ve noticed, but there is a distinct lack of them.

    I guess I’m unclear on what the difference would be between the male and female gloves. Is it just positioning?

  10. Avatar TOOL says:

    I usually just resize the gloves for females?

    Gene, which contest is it that you won again? I don’t have it in my (very sloppy) records.

    Oh dang, that’s what happened all right — I am missing the results from Caption Contest 114, 115, and 116 as I tracked those on that laptop that got stolen. Feh.

    I have the image now, Myro, thanks for the reminder. I’ll go in and add the other two winners as well.

  13. Avatar McKnight57 says:

    Jeff Hebert: I guess I’m unclear on what the difference would be between the male and female gloves. Is it just positioning?

    Well, I’m thinking more of the armored gloves, which don’t really fit that well on the slender female arms, unless you mask the gloves over the sleeve or arm. I’ll see what I can do for a while.

  14. Avatar BastionDin says:

    @Jeff

    With the HM3 Program is there a limit to how many items you can have loaded. What I mean is will there come a point where the program is too full and you as a programmer will have to start removing items to fit new ones?

  15. Avatar CKnap says:

    Things are coming along great. Glad youve had the time to catch back up Jeff. I really like your illustations too, great artwork. I know dblade has another group or so of items to be uploaded, hopefully you can get those up the next time you get a break from work.

  16. Avatar Kaylin88100 says:

    Psst…anyone with a prize to collect…make it something for Bodies, Backgrounds or Companions, ’cause dblade doesn’t do those for his Random Finalist Consolation Prize, or whatever it’s called these days.

    If anyone’s taking suggestions, I’d personally like an owl Companion, and/or a seal (either Companion or Body-Monsters). Been wanting to make a selkie for ages!

  17. Avatar dblade says:

    Hey, Kaylin88100. Speaking of Random Finalist Consolation Prize. You won the last one. So throw me a note with your art desire.

    It was a caption contest….110 it looks like 🙂

    Yay, I won!
    Wait…which contest was that again?

  20. ams ams says:

    Thanks for the update, Jeff.

    @ dblade – do you have a list of items you have submitted?

    The Envy/Gluttony contest….

    And the roll of the d6 dice is “2″. Kaylin88100 (the Chosen One) is the winner of dblade’s Random Finalist Consolation Prize!
    1. The Chosen One can choose one new item to be created for any existing category in Hero Machine 3 with the exception of these categories: Backgrounds, Companions.
    2. The new item must be applicable to the default body type. No specialized items for alternate body types (turned head, 3/4 torso, back view, etc…)
    3. I reserve the right to ask the Chosen One to pick another item if the request is beyond my ability or inappropriate for Hero Machine 3.
    4. Reference images or a really good description must be provided so I can fulfill the request with the minimal amount of heartache and frustration.
    So there you have it. As many of you are familiar with my contributions you know I can handle a wide range of art requests so don’t let the guidelines scare you. I do have limitations (damn you, Human Hair!!) so please be understanding if I have to decline a request.

    So Kaylin88100, it is time to choose, as the Chosen One, an art asset of your choice that can be chosen from the choices of your choosing as only you can choose. So be it!

  22. ams ams says:

    Is color for a character sketch have to be specified? Does that count as 2 prizes? If not is it to late to request color for my sketch?

  23. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    No color, black and white only.

  24. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    And to clarify, these are just Sketch of the Day kinds of things, quick and dirty and entirely at my discretion. You suggest the character, I do the sketch my way. The you-drive version where you get to pick poses and situation and all are limited to Big Wins like for Friday Night Fights and such.

  25. Avatar dblade says:

    Sounds good, Jeff. I just mentioned no background to save you some work. Whatever you do is fine with me.

  26. Avatar Kaylin88100 says:

    dblade: So Kaylin88100, it is time to choose, as the Chosen One, an art asset of your choice that can be chosen from the choices of your choosing as only you can choose. So be it!

    Oh cool! I get to choose! 😀
    I choose…ummm…
    Well…I’d like a seal tail, for Body-Monsters, if that’s allowed. If not, I’ll have some braces, please. http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/promod-trousers-shorts-peg-trousers-with-braces.jpg

    The choice has been chosen! All hail the Seal Tail!

    @Jeff, Would it be possible to get a female hand attached to a forearm? I had made some long-sleeved golves(if that’s what they’re called) with masking onto the full body figures that have everything attached. Since you can’t mask anything onto an individual hand, and you can’t pose full bodies, having arm-hands would be nice.

    Sure, that’s possible I suppose. What position do you want the hand in?

    Hey Kaylin88100,

    Here is a working rough of the seal body. I’ve posted it on the HeroMachine forums at UGO so if you wish to give feedback jump on over and check it out.

    Thanks for reminding me about my prize Jeff. I think I would like a MK. 14 Mod 0 EBR. In other words this: http://www.athenswater.com/images/img55.jpg
    http://www.fulton-armory.com/fultonarmoryusriflecal762mmm14-1-1-1-1-1.aspx

    the first picture is the best I could find but the stock is completely collapsed

    By the way I was wondering how difficult would it be to transfer the excusive items from the HeroMachine Lordi Edition to Heromachine 3 Alpha? Are they coded similar, under copyright protection for that particualr edition (thought I read something along those lines), or would you have to start from scratch? I was just wondering because I stumbled across it a few days ago.

  34. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Frankie, you realize the hand won’t be able to have anything placed in it, right? And if you could point me to another image — even in HeroMachine — that’s in the position you want that would be great.

  35. Avatar Frankie says:

    Yes, I know. I was referring to the hand position, not a hand that’s actually holding anything. A melee weapon holding position would be nice. It looks like ther are three in –female standard-right hand–. First page, top row, the first and third hands, and the last page, second row, last hand.

  36. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    Cool, thank you sir.

    LoneWolf6155: By the way I was wondering how difficult would it be to transfer the excusive items from the HeroMachine Lordi Edition to Heromachine 3 Alpha?

    Technically it’s very easy. The problem is that a lot of those items are copyrighted by Lordi — the band designed them and they’re exclusive to them.

    That’s interesting. Thanks for clearing that up.

    There are some cool items in that program. Different gloves and belts, even a cool looking hoof! Aren’t you looking for something like that for Cliff’s prize?
