Ok guys, this week I’m going to do something a little bit different. Instead of giving you a specific genre or whatever and you going and creating a character from it, I instead want you to create whatever type of character you please, but the hitch is YOU CANNOT USE THE STANDARD FORWARD FACING POSE. That is right, I want you to create a different pose to use. I know a lot of people already do and those of you that don’t I want you to try it because it isn’t all that bad to do honestly. If you’re stuck for ideas of inspiration or just aren’t sure how to do alternate poses, there is a section on the forum full of custom poses which you can find here- http://www.heromachine.com/forum/poses/ however, unless you were the original creator of any of these poses (i.e. AMS, keric, livewyre etc.) you aren’t allowed to use them as they are, because it isn’t you creating the pose. You can also use Companions as the bases for poses but you must at least make the character different from the base companion, different heads/ faces, hands all that sort of stuff.
Hopefully this isn’t too complicated and explanation and people get what I’m asking for you to do. If you aren’t a great poser don’t worry, I’m not just looking at the pose, I’m looking at how well you dress the pose as well as the usual character design/ costume design and all that stuff. So have fun and good luck.
As per usual, no limits on entries this week 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: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
