Pop Quiz: Clowning Around

Quit clowning around and get busy!

I thought after Halloween we could use a little cheering up, so your one-day challenge this week is:

Make an awesome clown in HeroMachine 3!

Happy clown, funny clown, scary clown, evil clown, you name it, just make it great. You can do just a face, just a head, just the clown, or a whole scene, whatever you like.

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 some time tomorrow. Here's how to make an entry:


(Click to embiggen.)

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!

    I only clowns I know are scary. So here’s my evil/scary clown with a flower that squirts acid and an umbrella with a blade hidden in the end.

    A question, Jeff, is it ok if I post a clown from a movie “House of 1000 corpses”? I mean, I created the picture with him a while ago, and it’s not Spiderman or Batman pic, so Copyright Gods may even miss it, right?

    No. I honestly don’t remeber that. All I remember is giant noses, deathly pale faces, big red grins, insane hair and the sound of crying children.

    I guess I’m weird, clowns never freaked me out. Except for the one in “Poltergeist” but come on, that thing was evil. Regular clowns always seemed nice to me, especially the one that ate my puppy.

    One of the twins picked up the wrong prop!
    Or did she do that on purpose? She’ll never tell.

    Mimes aren’t clowns! Whiteface does not a clown make. Ah, well, just a technical detail, I guess. They do look similar.
