Character Design Contest ♯95- Smells Like Team Spirit

Ok guys, what I want you to do for this weeks contest is create a team of some sort. It can be any kind of team you want, superhero team, sports team, army corp, music band etc. but I must insist that it consists of 2 or more recognisably individual members and that they be identifiable as a team by means of either a shared logo/ motif or by a shared colour scheme. Also, all the members must be submitted in one image, they cannot be submitted individually or you will be disqualified. To make this a bit easier, I will allow the user of programs other than heromachine for you to put the team together in one image, and only to put the team together in one image, any other external editing is not allowed.

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.

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 pictures and images 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.

    (Sorry for showing off. Ya can’t tell I love our Haunted game, can ya?)

  2. Point of clarification: Can a character from a previous contest be a member of the team or do all members of the team have to be new characters? Thanks

  3. @Blunt Object- I’m gonna have to re-word that rule. You can’t enter pictures that have been entered before, so as long as the picture you’re entering hasn’t been entered previously, you’ll be fine. If the characters in the picture have been entered before and all you’ve done is taken them from that entry and stuck them into a group picture that wouldn’t count, but the actual characters can be in an entry. Hope that clears it up for you. Now to reword the rules.

  4. Gotcha! Thanks!

  5. Would it have to be one image or could something like this count?
    BTW if it does count this is the first team i ever made on heromachine3. The Marked Ones
    http://th08.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2014/293/f/e/the_marked_ones_by_flash99gr-d83jl9q.jpg

  6. I don’t think I’m gonna enter. I mean, I can make good characters, but since I don’t have photoshop, or something like that (all I have is paint), I won’t be able to go up against the teams of other better people.
    Saying, that, someone really needs to do the 12 Olympians.

  7. @Lef- Yeah, that counts. They’re all shown together in the same picture so it’s alright.

  8. I’ve had this team concept since I was in high school in the very late 70s

    ttp://i795.photobucket.com/albums/yy240/Cliff_HM3/Cliff_Team_GLA001a_zpsc5c38551.jpg

    GLA
    Gay Lesbian Association

    Some of the members of the GLA took the names that had been used as taunts and torment their whole life as their own as an action of empowerment,
    just as Gay Liberation had taken the Pink Triabgle and the word Queer.

    BACK ROW:
    Ursa Major (Were bear), Lambda (Power armor)

    FRONT ROW:
    Diana Moonchild (Magic), American Fag (Super Soldier),
    Dyke (Water control),
    Faggot (Fire Emmission), Diesel (Gagetter)

    Not pictured is:
    Queer (Hallucination/Illusions),
    Size Queen (Growth),
    Trans (Shapechanger),
    Labrys (Amazon/Axe),
    OffiSir (Mind Control),
    Pansy (Plant Control),
    Rainbow Warrior (Light Control),
    Twinkie (Acrobat/Martial Arts)

  9. @hawk007, you should try it,
    I just did my GLA all on Hero Machine, no editing in anything else.
    It can be done, I did have to do a llot of close up and MOVE ALL to get the faces in the close up view to work on, and remember when I resized or moved something to click back on CURRENT ITEM ONLY. Won’t say how many times I forgot LOL.

    But give it a try, I bet you will surprise yourself.

  10. Hmmm… what makes them count as a noticeably definable team? Will a team that all wears armored space suits count? They don’t really do a color scheme… I’m thinking their unifying characteristic (alien space armor, to put it in simple terms) is less of a visual thing and thus probably doesn’t work well for this contest, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask.

    I bring it up because I was nearly finished designing this team by request of one of my rpg players, and it would be fun to enter them.

  11. The Fantastic Four and the Avengers are both teams, but the FF wear uniforms while the Avengers don’t. So yes, I would say that unifying armour would definitely work. Having said that, how well they work together as a team can define them as much as what they wear; just because they share the same goal, doesn’t mean their worldviews, or even the way they achieve that goal, are the same. So perhaps you could convey their personalities through posture, hairstyles, etc.

  12. @hawk007: There is a free program called Paint.net that is a lot like photoshop. You can pick it up at http://www.getpaint.net/

  13. @Sabrina- As long as they look like they belong together you should be fine. Best example I could give would be the costumes from Grant Morrison’s New X-Men run. They aren’t wearing exactly the same uniform like the F4 but they have a similar look that makes it instantly recognisable that they’re all on the same team.

  14. No shared insignia but more like a shared theme. Hopefully this still falls within the contest parameters. If not no worries. The team is The Persian Protectorate. Zeynab Shadi, sorcereress of light & Gloom the Djinn of darkness.

  15. Sorry but i hadnt realised that the text was from the page i used to edit as when i made this i didnt know about the fonts 😛 Sorry for the inconvenience but would you mind using this one instead as i kind of broke the rules with the last one 😛
    http://th06.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2014/294/4/8/the_marked_ones_by_flash99gr-d83jl9q.jpg

  16. The Defenders are a superhero team consisting of the Superstrong and invulnerable Delta, the hydrokinetic Cascade, the speedster Rush, the flying Apogee, and the alien scientist Warq. The team’s belts allow for them to communicate psychically.

  17. Great timing for this contest! I just redesigned a bunch of members of one of my favorite teams…

    SPECTRUM

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz_SPECTRUM.png

    A super-powered team of LGBTQQIAAP teens, mentored by three aging LGBT heroes from the past. Obviously they’re motif is in the uniforms (BLACK + ONE COLOR). I also created logos for them, but didn’t want to actually paste them on the characters as that feels a bit of a stretch into the boundaries of what constitutes acceptable image manipulation for this contest… Aaaanyways, breakdown of the characters:

    Top row: META (space-time bender, reality manipulator), APEX (enhanced physical attributes, adrenaline fueled bouts of superstrength), STONEWALL (organic armored skin, nigh invulnerable), PUTO (photonic energy caster)

    Middle Row: MAMA (controls the four classical elements), BEAR (enhanced senses, healing factor, can shapeshift into ursine form), CUB (enhanced senses, healing factor, expert martial artist)

    Bottom Row: ENIGMA (power mimicry), SAFEZONE (forcefield projection), QUANDARY (telepathic projection of thought-scrambling aura), YRYS (energy wielder, enhanced physical attributes, rainbow hair)

  18. And while we’re at it, THE EIGHT!

    http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l607/DiCicatriz/HM%20Contests/DiCicatriz_THEEIGHT.png

    A group that battles the unseen forces of mysticism to preserve the balance of the universe, they are incredibly skilled superhuman martial artists, each embodying one of the Eight Dharmapalas of legend.

    From L to R: BENEFACTOR (resident brute/tank, able to transmute people/objects into precious metals/gems), SEER (precognition, 360 sight, transference of sight onto mystic talismans), DESTROYER (wields the devastating Bava Chakra, siphons energy of opponents souls), PACIFIER (in a state of perpetual calm, manifests insanely powerful chakra limbs), GIVER (houses two portals in his palms, one absorbs matter, the other expels energy), MENDER (healer, able to cure illnesses and injury in others), OUTLASTER (immortal, his body can stitch itself back together from any injury), PROTECTOR (indestructible armor, swords that can cut through anything, and a heart that beats with explosive crimson bursts)

  19. This is my first submission.

    http://s47.photobucket.com/user/matthew_king4/library/?view=recent&page=1

    The Hunter’s Hierarchy

    Middle: Aestillon, The Starsmith, The First Light
    A being with the power to build sun’s. A man that adorns golden forged plate, a man considered by many to be a living god.

    Left: Dennith, The Magician, The Shade and Shine
    Dennith is destined to become the first Leader of Men, but for now he is an assassin that uses light and smoke to engage his target.

    Right: Kaira, The Maiden, The Vengeful Saint
    Kaira was once a loving mother of four soldiers, but when an army invaded and killed every man woman and child. Her spirit held to the bow of her oldest son and has sought revenge ever since.

    Well those are my characters.
    Thanks

  20. The Unknown Squad:

    I’m not so good with bios… Be my guest if you want to come up with one for yourself. :p

  21. http://imgur.com/bYMwxya

    My first ever submission. The team’s theme, if you’re not a history buff, is ruling groups in China. Left to right: Communists (Red Guard), Qing Dynasty (Court Official), and Yuan Dynasty (Mongol Warrior). I don’t really do bios, so… yeah.

  22. Hey, sorry for the edit. But scratch those last links, I just found the direct links for the images at their original size! For some higher resolution teamwork:

  23. I hope I didn’t break any rules by removing the white background from where it doesn’t belong while grouping the characters. Or is that already “external editing”? Also, I hope I got that right, that it’s allowed to have characters in the group that’ve been entered individually to a contest before …

    Let’s start with a group of supervillains from an alternate reality. (I apologize for the “shared logo” which is actually forbidden to show here in Germany, but how better to show that they’re rotted to the core?)
    The pride of the “Thousand-Year Reich”: The Aryan Supermen
    From left to right: Blitz, Angst, Kraftwerk, Sturmfront, Kampfgeist, and Wehrwolf

    Phew, know we really need some good guys!

    From left to right and bottom to top: Killjoy, Jackhammer, Great Dane, Blackbird, Mimicry, Rubicon, Grunt, and Hardwire

    Sadly, The Tomorrow Men don’t like to be cataloged. Then again, the also don’t like humans which is why they annilated all of them on their alternate earth.
    From left to right: XLR8, B4, XS, NME, NRG, and FX

    Let’s hope they don’t meet The Travellers. These heroes from a steampunk reality have already enough on their plate with the war againgst the alien Xi’bala.

  27. I am glad I posted what I did. I’m not going to be able to post the other two entries I wanted to. I’m at the hospital, cardiac care. Today I have dayilisis, and angioplasty, then depending on what they find, possible stints. My friend Kim is writing this, hope to see you next week.

  28. Get well soon Cliff. Hope everything goes ok.

  30. After their leader Delta was injured, the Defender’s roster was shaken up with members leaving and new members joining. I present the new Defenders.
    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/295/4/8/vampyrist_defendersnewroster_by_vampyrist1042-d83tvd3.png

  31. Question: All the characters must be CURRENTLY on the team?
    In my team, there’s a member who left the group and became a vilain.
    Also, his uniform changed due to the dark side convertion, so he doesn’t bear the insignia or the colors of the main team.

  32. Mad Jack:
    I hope I didn’t break any rules by removing the white background from where it doesn’t belong while grouping the characters. Or is that already “external editing”?

  36. Uh oh, almost forgot these cohorts:

    In a divergent timeline The Defiants fight against alien occupying forces in the ruins of a dystopian, post-apocalyptic world …

  37. So I had a lot of trouble finding a program that I can easily crop these together on the Mac. I miss having paint on pc… but i finally got it and well it looks a little pixilated and zoomed out, I made weird versions of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse (Death, War, Famine, Conquest) and I hope the program I used didn’t mess them up too bad. If anyone knows a good program for the Mac please tell me thanks..

    the world has gone dark. corruption every where. groups are formed to survive the savage lands of what once was there city.
    this group White Hyenas was founded by blood queen.

    Blood Queen(middle): leader of the group. they call her blood queen because she is not afraid of getting a bit of blood on her hands.

    Misfit Twins(far left and right): the scouts of the group they look ahead for any danger or goodies.

    Psycho(bottom left): you want guns he got guns. short tempered, snaps easy. the others know not to piss him off.

    Samson(bottom right): all Samson wants is to hug you(crush your skull). a loveable brut. he may be stupid but he will crush you.

  40. I’ve just completed a team, Could have put it in this contest?
    Probably, but I believe that it would be wrong to “Test” the limit of the time limit-I’ll save it for the next team contest…
