Pop Quiz: Companion Dress Up

Happy Saturday, people! Unless you're on the other side of the world in which case it's already Sunday. If so, drop us a line and let us know what the world is like in the fuuuuuuuture ... Ahem.

Your one-day quick-fire challenge is:

Dress Up a Humanoid Companion!

In other words, make a character illustration like you normally would, only the body has to be one of the items from Companion-Humanoids. You can do a little or a lot, but the Companion has to be the main character.

You only get one entry -- that's right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular contest, but instead of a whole week I'll announce the winner either tonight or first thing in the morning.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his "Bayou Belle" character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here's a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

The winner will receive their choice of either one item or one portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 release, or one Sketch of the Day style drawing where you pick the subject and I draw it how I like.

Good luck!

  5. This might be seen as copyright infringement (if it is I will promptly delete the file) or something which has nothing to do with today’s challenge, but I’m afraid this is the first thing which came to my mind when I read the word “companion”… http://s17.postimage.org/oo3yros7j/Quark_Night_of_the_Robomen.jpg

  6. Companions are usually people relegated to the background by a larger figure, so I thought of someone who deserves to be a bit more in the foreground, losing his milquetoast image. Let the other guy fade for a bit, no?

  14. My advice for any young woman going into hand-to-hand combat: Wear clothes. And bring a dragon.


  15. Obsessed with this program. Darn you Mr. Hebert.

  16. I give you Project Frost Fang! This was military project designed by soviet Russia during the cold war. They created their own sort of personal guard to defend Russia from outside invaders. The idea of the project was to design a suit of armor that could be warn by soviet soldiers. The armor and weapons were designed to be silent, but also to be almost invisible in heavy snow due to its camouflage. That way the warriors could kill any would be invaders without detection by the enemy.


  17. And this is already familiar to you a picture. A man with a gun made ​​in this way.

  18. Oops, sorry, did not notice that only one job. Then let it be the second.
    PS: I have time! Already the future! Hooray!

  19. Yay! I didn’t think I’d have time for this today!

    Sorry, but when I saw the title of the quiz, I couldn’t help but think of the game little girls like to play with fancy clothes.
