Color my Character Challenge #1

Just for fun, lets see what you can come up with.

The Challenge is to color in the character, without changing the character other than adding color to it. You can add a background or other designs, but you can not take anything away from the Character. If you like this challenge I can add it to the list of weekly posts. The first character is “R.I.P” by ams. All you have to do is copy the text RIP-no-color by ams and  import it into Hero Machine and the character is ready to color.

  1. Very Cool.

  2. Hammerknight, did you run this by AMS before you put his creation up for everyone to have a go with, because I’ve only seen this one when AMS posted it on the forums for djuby to colour.
    I like the idea of the contest and I will definitely be taking part, if of course AMS has given permission for his creation to be used.
    If you are going to make this a weekly challenge are people submitting creations onto some sort of thread for you to go through and choose one or are you going to ask a different person each week if they’d like to put up one of their creations?

  3. Yes I did run it by ams first. I was wanting to see the response to the post before I set anything into stone. But ams is a wonderful creator and his characters would be great to work with. I am open to any suggestion.

    I like this challenge. Hopefully more people enter. Also curious how ams, himself, would color it.

    I went with white

  6. I thought of jack the ripper when I first saw the character. Someone already did my color idea kinda so I didn’t want to copy cat.

  7. I went with a creepy surgeon.
    I hope you all like!

  8. Nice idea, HK! Here’s my take on it (only wish he’d had eyes behind his glasses, so I could have brought the alpha down on the lenses a little more without it looking weird):

    The rules say not to take away or change the character, but if I was going for transparent lenses I wouldn’t think adding eyes would be a problem. They probably aren’t there simply because ams went with opaque lenses.

    It does make you think of Jack the Ripper.

    Addind eyes would of been okay.

  12. headlessgeneral

    Yeah, I added eyes to mine. Although they are barely visible.

  13. So, I started out all “Victorian Surgeon Gone Mad”, but I misplaced a flesh tone, and it went from there…

  16. Being a sort of “Lurker” if you will of Heromachine 3 I do enjoy seeing that others have been keeping the blog going, mad props and love to you guys! And just wanted to say that this is a cool challenge so I’m on the side of this being in the weekly posts. Oh and very cool character AMS!

  17. I’m really interested to see the judging for this. Hope you all like what I came up with.

    In doing this, I remembered why it’s best to add patterns last:

    Tell me about it. 200 layers won’t bog down my computer like 10 patterns will….

  20. Looking at life through rose colored glasses.
    Blood flows like wine , sweet as molasses.
    Knife breaks skin.
    Fear sets in.
    In silence, whispers scream.

    Yeah, as soon as I chose the color for the glasses the words just sprang up at me.
