Pop Quiz: Ted!

Happy Saturday, folks! In honor of the release of the movie “Ted”, your one-day quick-fire challenge is:


Make an image using this cute little guy!

You can dress him up, put him in someone else’s hand, or make him a giant Godzilla like destroyer, but this item (from ItemRight-Miscellaneous, page 6, second row) has to be somewhere in the image. One tip, you can manually type in a percentage in the Scale box that’s larger than 200 to resize it much larger.

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 tomorrow morning. Elaborate backgrounds aren’t necessary, though if you’ve got one it’s fine.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the HeroMachine 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!

    Interesting (maybe only to me) fact, but Berzerkers were so named because of the bear-skin cloak they wore in battle.

  10. Man. You guys are so awesome. Makes it a little intimidating for us new folks.

    First of all the link is not good, this is the jump page link. Second your name not seen in the entry. If you want to enter pls repair this mistakes.

  24. ryan: i think i mite be wrong i think its bar BEAR ians

    ….um…

  25. It’s not me if i don’t make something different with the others. In my picture the bear is not the central piece but very important to shown the emotional feeling of the picture.

    If you sad or unhappy, hug your teddy bear.
    Teddy loves you forever!

  27. Hi everybody, what’s been going on in HM here? I have switched to a new schedule and just got back from a much needed week off so I havent been on at all. Sorry I missed out on some good posts. I will jump back in sometime when I can but lifes really busy right now. I will just be a spectator and occasional commentor untill I can find more time to be more active again.

  28. Welcome back, TOOL! I know you’ve been having a rough go of it the last couple of months, I’m glad to hear you’re still cranking along.

  29. OK folks, entries are closed! I’m now downloading them all.

  30. Get Well Soon!

    I missed the deadline, posting anyway.

  31. Jeff Hebert: Welcome back, TOOL! I know you’ve been having a rough go of it the last couple of months, I’m glad to hear you’re still cranking along.

    Thanks Jeff, yeah things were quite rough there for a minute but they are getting better. I actually get another week off at the end of this month so it will be nice not to have to work.

    Many of us follow and use Heromachine from years, but usually I don’t post here [sorry, between works, house keeping, my cat and the GameMastering, I've a little time :)]

    But since I’ve already done a pair of character with that Teddy Bear item for our campaing, why don’t post it?
