Pop Quiz: Humanoids

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge today is to create an awesome image using one of the new Companion-Humanoids I posted a couple of days ago:


(Click to embiggen.)

You can use one of them, or all of them, or anything in between. You can use just a piece of it (via clever masking) or the entirety of it, so long as there’s at least one of the new ones in there somewhere.

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. Here’s how to make an entry:

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. This informative graph brought to you by Vault-Tec Industries…

  2. I didn’t think i’d have time to make much for this, so i just made something quick and silly:

  3. Dungeon after dungeon — endless monsters — tensions running high. These four adventurers used to be friends, but that all ended when someone shot the food.

  5. I did my best to name it appropriately, Jeff.
    This is essentially a modern-day standoff in an alley, rather than the middle of the street. http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/266/3/c/mcknight57_gunfighton39th_by_mcknighthc-d5fmu08.png

  6. A Chance Meeting:

    (The following is to be read in the style of a Rom-Com movie trailer)

    Like most abandoned sentient constructions, R0Dee the Rampaging Robot had resigned himself to forever killing all humans. But a chance meeting with a peculiar small furry creature opened his heart to love.

  7. A priestess tries to catch the eye of an Imperial Guard:

    Temptation at the Temple

  8. Some mutants are non-viable for unusual reasons. Gropey the Spider-spider is one such case. (Jeff, you’re right, that’s a name that needs to be a real thing.)

  9. A lone hero confronts a powerful group of supervillains:

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz_BlueStar_vs_QuantumQuintet_zps5ef99cab.png

    Blue Star was an EMT who was infused with the power of an alien energy form after saving the life of an extra-dimensional being. The strange radiation granted him vast superhuman durability and enhanced strength, as well as the ability to give off an intense blue aura that has the capacity to heal others. We join our hero as he confronts the Quantum Quintet, a group of humanist terrorists who aim to force humanity into the next stage of its evolution by culling the majority of the human populace and remanding the rest of them to concentration camps where they can be experimented on mystically, spiritually, and genetically.

    Eidolon- a sorcerer whose body exists as a corporeal gateway between our world and the other side. He harnesses spiritual energy for various effects

    Epoch- Exists simultaneously in three separate timelines, using his unique temporal position to give himself superhuman speed.

    Noble Savage- An evolutionary scientist whose experiments regressed his body to a savage feral state, but boosted his cognitive function to beyond genius levels.

    Irradia- She subsists solely on the absorption of different forms of energy and radiation which she can project outwards in powerful bursts.

    Sister Oblivion- A mysterious immortal, she made a pact with dark and powerful deities, granting her vast power. She has yet to reveal the limits of her strength, but is known to enthrall the minds of men with just a glance.

    Wanted to do something with a full background (since that’s completely foreign to me), where the characters weren’t slap dash in front. Also, New York seems to have an unusually high ratio of heroes, so…,

  11. Um, The new additions are under Companion Humanoids, right? for some reason i’m not seeing anything past the Crowd.

  15. Unofficially referred to as The Six, these companions have banded together under orders from the Kings’ Council to discover if any of the Elder Race (the Elves) still exist within the known world, and if they do, to ask their aid in defeating an ancient evil that is acting through the heir of the Southern Kingdom. They are:

    Zanna- A fierce Warrior of the Eastern Plains. She is sent to accompany her sister in finding the Elves.

    Rowen- her sister, a powerful mage that controls the elements and sometimes sees the future. Originally part of the Eastern Mage Hall, it is her visions that begin the adventure.

    Lutair- fifth son (and eighth child) of the Dwarven King. A powerful warrior, he also brings his dragonling, Swifter.

    Shanti- A hunter from the Northern Kingdom. She belongs to the Bear Clan who live in the forests.

    Panden- a half-halfling of the Northern Snake Clan (his mother’s clan). His halfling blood gives him great agility and dexterity.

    Flint- originally a nameless golem, the control spell chiseled into his body was destroyed, leaving it alive but with free will. He seeks to discover new things within the world, and so takes the chance to perhaps find one of the Elder Race.

  17. @Jeff, Hey, Here’s a little suggestion for the next revision of the HM3 engine… How about, in the export tab, we get some 16:9 widescreen resolutions? The ones that we have now are all 4:3.

    I ask because whenever I try to do really wide stuff (the above picture being an example), I end up having to do a screen capture. Now, granted, I may be the only one in the HM community with this kind of issue but, somehow, I doubt it.

    In case you like this idea, here are some suggestions of resolution sizes: 1280×720, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2560×1440

    Cheers
