Character Contest 88: Space Pirates!

Your character design challenge this week is to make an awesome space pirate! I realized in our last mix-and-match contest that I had neither space nor pirate listed as options and that is clearly unacceptable. So this week we’re going to combine them!

The rules are the same as usual:

  1. Use only a HeroMachine applet (no PhotoShopping except for basic cropping) to create a PNG or JPG of your entry, named as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  2. Enter the name of your entry and a link directly to the image in a comment to this post. The image cannot have been used in any previous HeroMachine character design contest.
  3. The link to your image should go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see “preview” or “rotate” somewhere in the link you’re probably doing it wrong.
  4. I’ll choose a winner next Monday, who will receive his or her choice of any item or a portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 program, or a “Sketch of the Week” style black and white illustration (you pick the subject and I draw it up however I like).

No limit on entries this week, so give it your best shot!

    This is Thallon Vhaze, a Star Wars Mandalorian bounty hunter who has his own crew of slave trading, ship raiding mercenaries. He lost his right hand at the hands of a Jedi and has held a bitter hatred for them since.

    This contest is perfect, because I just so happen to have a whole crew of space pirates. There are eight of them, of which I will be entering seven (one has been previously entered in a contest.) They may not all look like pirates or “spacey” in the traditional sense, but I assure they are space pirates. And they are some of my favorite characters I’ve created. I do plan on doing something new and more “space piratey(skull and crossbones and lasers an stuff)” later in the week also. I’ll definitely be taking advantage of the “no limit” rule on this one.

    OK, on to the crew of the SunCross

    I was going to rewrite this because it’s very rough, the reason I didn’t upload it with my character, but I don’t know if I’ll get to it or not, so here’s the rough write up for more context.

    Grey aliens discover mankind, with much observation they are unsure whether to love or fear him.
    Grey aliens abduct people and experiment on them in order to build a replica Human A.I. appearing human with organic parts, though he learns much faster and has no need to rest.
    The A.I. is launched onto an uninhabited world identical to Earth in order to see how it adapts and evolves.
    The A.I. creates crude constructs such as shelter, tools, transportation, and even a companion.
    The A.I. refines his constructs and creates more. Unable to maintain them all the A.I. creates V.I. workers for the more mundane tasks.
    The A.I. makes the V.I. workers smarter inorder to better complete their tasks inadvertantly changing them from V.I. into A.I.
    The world begins to take on shape and contrast as the A.I. workers learn who they are and thus reflect it through their works.
    The population rivals that of any world, and the different opinions and such form groups which grow into nations leading to possible wars.
    Considering the original A.I. a God, more correctly their creator, peace is kept in his name.
    His original companion as smart as he kills the A.I. inorder to take his place. His plan fails, war errupts.
    The A.I. do away with self asthetic beauty as they adapt to war.
    The world is a wasteland, A.I.’s killing one another on sight, many have abandoned the world.
    General MUN1S (pronounced munis) is one such A.I., loyal to the original A.I., the general has abandoned his world inorder to retake it from the Alpha Intelligence corrupt companion, Omega Prime.
    Originally a maintainence unit assigned to network 1 security, MU115N1S to be exact.
    He gathers an army and supplies by raiding ships and taking part in illegal trades, be it weapons, ships, slaves, contraband, etc.

    During a freak accident on the isolated moon of Kralix-3, his gang’s ship exploded, tainting him with radioactive goo (effectively turning his skin a permanent shade of emerald green) and blowing off his right arm, left leg, and a section of his torso.

    His gang declared dead, he sent out a distress call by accidentally shooting the emergency pods of his ship, and a crew came by to save him. He now lives as a cyborg with a cloud of radioactivity emanating from him, almost like….

    Even when on the run from the law, this cyberspace pirate can use her Portable Amplified Radio Range Omni-Transmitter to hack into any network, seeking the most precious booty of all – information.

    Pay attention to whose ship you’re boarding. Sometimes you’ll find that piracy just isn’t worth it if you don’t do your research.

  75. Life aboard a pirate ship is not always party and plunder. It needs constant upkeep, especially the mundane task of scraping nebula barnacles from the hull:

    Entry #1 of my set of entries, set in a universe where people can breath in space on starships made of wood and shaped like galleons that can ‘sail’ vast distances in a comparatively short amount of time. Why not?:

    My second entry. I not want to follow the way of a one eyed, and one hand or leg missed pirates. But i seen a lot of good idea to make a pirate crew. So i think a lot to make an another crew member.

    Here is Phantas Magloria

    She is Phantas Magloria. The second hand of the spacepirate ship Black Cobra. She is an Denin. An humanoid species from the crab nebula. Very angry and nasty personallity. Bloodthirsty and fierce-tempered. A lot of dead body behind her when she reach the second hand rank. In battle she Don’t know the mercy, and after battles always drink down for drunk state. When she have good tempered always tell jokes for the crew of the ship, but she in bad mood. God sake if the bad luck shown something before her.
