Character Design Contest ♯60- Old School: Elementals

Ok guys, back to the OS challenges, and this week I want you to create an elemental hero or villain, that is a character that can control some sort of elemental power (e.g. Fire). Your character can be modern, silver or golden age in style, but I want to see them using their powers, so fire effects, bolts of electricity, jets of water, all that stuff.

As usual, no entry limit and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    Here is my first entry:
    The Redeemer, a demon posessed cowboy. Can throw fireballs and has a revolver that shoots Hell Bullets (for want of a better term). Hunts down criminals who have escaped judgement in exchange for a chance of getting into heaven.

  2. Bluemetrox says:

    For my second entry, there is the Rock Lord. He can manipulate the ground and cause seismic activity (as well as throw boulders with his mind). Ruler of the nation of Petrovia. He also has super strength and can sense movement via tremors in the earth.

  3. Bluemetrox says:

    For my third entry, there is Merma, princess of Atlantis. Can breathe underwater, swim incredibly quickly and is much more durable than a human. Also possesses a degree of superstrength to be able to survive at the bottom of the Aleutian trench. Can create constructs out of water (or moisture in the air). While underwater, she begins to revert to her Atlantean form (she appears human in order not to frighten other humans)

    This is a creation I made showing the strength of an Earth elemental.
    I call it,
    The Rise of the Goliath

  6. Arioch says:

    The Burning, a human sorcerer-king kept alive by his vast mastery over flame

    Isen, a mage focusing on Ice creations, such as his ice sword:

    Isen alternate:

    Hiems, son of a winter fae, with his pale, cold skin a strange blue hair, granted power over cold by his inhuman blood:

    That’s all, folks! 😀

  7. Lawrence Wilson says:

    This is Hothead and her pet dragon, Brimstone. She’s the first character I redid on HM3 after the 2.5 original. You might say this is a more mature version as her mutation increases.

  8. Lawrence Wilson says:

    This is Hothead’s brother, Burn Unit, also with his mutation matured.

  9. Lawrence Wilson says:

    Since I made multiple versions of these characters, I’ll stick with my flame manipulators. Here are Burn Unit and Hot Head together.

  10. Rhinoman says:

    Cool use of patterns to make Isen’s ice sword!

  11. Arioch says:

    Thanks a lot, Rhinoman! 😀

  12. CantDraw says:

    Red Bat’s sensei is considered by those that know him to be the greatest martial artist of his time, if not all time. It is said he can take down an opponent with touching him and that his chi can take physical form as pictured above.

  13. Keric says:

    When PRVT Stone came under enemy fire he began to transport and transform rocks into a shield, the added weight caused him to sink into the ground a bit!

  14. Mad Jack says:

    I finished this guy only yesterday for a new group I’m gonna post soon and thought he’d fit in here pretty well:

    Dragonfire creates fire with a heat up to 1600 °C (2912°F), instantly melting or burning anything it touches.

  15. Cliff says:

    My first element to go to is usually fire, but being a showing element i figured a lot of people would so I went with Air instead.
