Character Of The Week: Mudslide by Anarchangel

Ah, the lesser spotted COTW post, some what of an endangered species, mostly due to the fact I want it to be special when I do post it, so it's not weekly anymore. But anyway, just because the forums are down doesn't mean we're not getting awesome artwork to feature. For example, Anarchangel posted this to his deviantart page earlier.

Ok it hasn't got as much of a "Wow!" factor as the last few COTW's but I felt this deserved to be featured because its very inventive. You don't see many mud/ slime creatures in Heromachine form, mostly because they're very difficult to do, but AA managed to pull it off in a very impressive way, just by using the elasticated arm as a base and working from that. And I think we can agree that the final product works very well.

One final thing, would you guys like me to make this post weekly again once the forums are back up and running (whenever that may be). I have said why I'd like to keep it a occasional post, but if you guys want it weekly again I will oblige. There's plenty of great heromachine work out there deserving to be featured for me to make it weekly again.

  1. That is an awesome creature, Dubble-Eh!

    And Yes.
    I miss checking the blog every day to see if there is a new post and always finding something. So please continue doing COTW as its name suggests.

    And forums or not, I think we need more contributors to the blog (not so many as to dilute the quality of what we’re exposed to or reduce interest in what the HM blog has already. Just enough to keep things fresh on a daily basis).

  2. There’s enough catch-up to do it could be weekly for a good long while . . . maybe some COT yesteryear W entries along the way?

  3. I’d go for weekly. I find them to be a great source of inspiration.

  4. A very inventive character, and I think he has lots of WOW power. Great work Anarchangel.

    And yeah JR I would love to see the Character Of The Week come back as a regular feature. I do miss seeing something new here every day, kinda a bummer when there’s not.

  5. I vote for weekly. A nice spotlight of a cool character can be inspirational.

  6. Thanks guys.

    Also, I like Herr D’s idea of highlighting some older characters. There are so many great characters hidden away on both the forums and DA that could be shown here.

  7. I’d be willing to do more then just caption contests on the blog accept I just not sure WHAT to write about. I could try bringing back anime talk, however I couldn’t do that on a weekly basis, and I have either burnt out on the my previous Stuff ( Bad Super Costumes, Poll Position, etc ) or got very little participation to make it worth my time ( Character redesign contest ) ,… So give me some ideas on what you wanna see, and if I think I can do the topic / subject matter justice I will give it a go.

  8. Very creative, Double A!
    Missin me some forums.
