Power User Profiles: FRM

One of the highest posters on the forums (although I think he may have fallen behind a bit recently), it gives me great pleasure to welcome this week’s Power User; FRM

Online name used in HeroMachine environs: FRM

A photo (or drawing) of you in “real life”:

Origin of Username: F-R-M sounds like my first name when said fast.

Real name: Ephrem Acker

Real city/state/country: Undisclosed

Real job: none

Online archive of your creations (if any): http://www.heromachine.com/for…..le-of-hm3/

The best piece of HeroMachine art you’ve created: Panther. I can hardly get over how proud I am of this piece. The face was sculpted out of circle insignias, but it looks like one piece! Since I am allowed to brag every now and then, I amaze myself.

FRM 1

Favorite all-time geeky movie if any: Justice League: Doom. Also Batman, Under the Red Hood

Favorite all-time geeky book if any: LOTR, with the Inheritance Cycle in close second

Favorite all-time geeky TV show if any: Batman, the animated series; also, Gargoyles

Favorite all-time comic book character: Batman

If you could have one super-heroic power in real life, you’d choose: Flight. I know that sounds kind of cheesy, but once you’ve flown in dreams…

In your leisure time you like to: draw, Heromachine, blog, play old videogames, read.

Character design turn-ons (things you love to see that make for a good design): cohesion. The best HM illustrations are the ones whose parts flow well into one another, with no visually conflicting ideas. And originality.

Character design turn-offs (things you hate to see that make for a bad design): I don’t really have any specific pet peeves, but I dislike clutter in an image, though sometimes I do that…

Best tip for a HeroMachine newbie: be inspired. Be creative. Heromachine is here for you, not you for it. Ask questions of the HM community, and you will get more of an answer than you expected. Share YOUR ideas, and the bounties will be threefold.

Any personal message you’d like to share with the HeroMachine community about Geek Life: I’d just like to thank all you in the HM community, for the inspiration and support. And check out my blog, where I’m posting the stories for my RavenSword universe

  1. 14?! You’re pretty well-spoken for a 14 year old. Man, at your age I was still an idiot. Some would say I never left that stage, but I don’t listen to them.

  2. Wait, you’re 14?! I would never have guessed. I swear Power Users are getting younger and younger…

    And welcome to the club! It’s nice to finally have you join us.

  3. Congrats. Also, seriously, 14? I mean, well deserved.

  4. Congrats and welcome!

  5. Yeah, I thought you were a wizard. So I was only off by 158 years. Congratulations!

  6. I wondered if you might be a young prodigy. –I was surprised, though, to realize you weren’t already a power user! Welcome.

  7. Congrats & cheers!

  8. Welcome to the club young padawan.

  9. Unexpected age, despite myself being about that old when I started on Heromachine. And so that I’m not just another person commenting on your age, I always wondered if it was possible to make a character out of insignia, now I have some idea.

  10. thanks, all, very much!
