Pop Quiz: Riding it out

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge today is to create an image that involves something riding something else (keep it clean!). It could be a mermaid riding a dinosaur, or a dinosaur riding a robot, or a robot riding a chimp, or a knight riding a horse, or a man riding a motorcycle made of donuts, you get the idea.

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 challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites 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.

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

  1. When I first discovered HM I tried to place things on objects and to my suprise this one worked out pretty well.
    Known as The PeaGreen Bandit,he went awol and has been running from the military elite ever since.The only problem is that he is still wearing his peagreen uniform and driving a pink motor bike ,sore thumb(green thumb?)to say the least.here he is……….

    I think the title is fairly explanatory once you see the picture.

  3. I haven’t entered one of these, mostly because I spend most of my Saturdays out of the house….. but since I have 5 minutes today AND I already did this one some time ago, here’s StegoRider…

    when I saw this all I could think about was that classic bit from Dr. Strangelove, so here is my rendition of Slim Pickins riding the bomb.

  6. So I had this visitor who was behind schedule. I told him he could have my bike. –I didn’t CALL it a bicycle . . .

    The image name is supposed to have a dash, but it didn’t keep it for some reason. Hope that’s not a problem.

    I love how you have to tell us to keep it clean, just knowing a pervert is waiting to show you his work of “something riding something else” hahaha

    I dont have time this weekend to enter the contest but good luck everyone.
    We can make a motorcycle out of donuts? This is something I’d love to see someone do lol

  11. It was hard to decide on one idea, but finally I remembered this song I heard as a kid:

    She sailed away on a sunny summer day,
    On the back of a crocodile.
    “You see,” said she, “he’s as tame as he could be!
    I’ll ride him down the Nile.”
    The croc winked his eye as the lady waved goodbye,
    wearing a happy smile.
    At the end of the ride, the lady was inside,
    And the smile was on the crocodile.

    And figured I had to illustrate it.

    3rd creation I’ve made in HM
    I don’t really have a name for this character but it is some cosmic conqueror. He arrived sooner than expected.
