Character Of The Week: AMS- The Aviator

These last few weeks have really reminded me why I used to hero worship AMS when I first started heromachine. We spent so much time on COTW recently focusing on relatively new community members like Jeimuzu, Candruth and Ubiquitous Pixel and all the while AMS has been sitting there in the background and then, when the new guys let their guard down he's there with stuff like this. It's like listening to any of your favourite modern bands and then going back and listening to the stuff you grew up listening to, you quickly remember why you loved them so much  (if we're talking bands, I'd say AMS is the Led Zeppelin of Heromachine). I suppose I should actually talk about the picture at some point in this post, so I shall quickly point out that AMS still puts over 3/4 of us to shame when it comes to shading and the metallic sections of the costume are sublime.

Also Awesome This Week

Mod Note: There where at least 3 or 4 here this week that I felt I could have talked about for the main COTW, it was a good week. Well done guys.

  1. Great works, one and all.
    @ams: Amazing ‘Machining Syndrome? Is that what it really stands for?
    @Geno: Some people I used to know in the volunteer recruiting field might greatly appreciate “Haunted.” Contact NAMI.org ?
    @Cliff: Is there someone rotten in front of Denmark?
    @Linea: I’m hiding those pics from my five-year-old. She’ll demand I buy her the MLP stuffies that don’t even exist!

  2. Very cool collection!

    OK not even counting the spooky atmospheric vibe there.
    The pose just had me checking it out, those side by side sneakers … NOT easy to do in HM3 and make them look right. added with the hair covering the face, the arm and knees, AND the monsters in the dark and of course said dark, and nice creepy work there.

    THE MOST PRECIOUS PONIES YET!!!!
    and I love the colors, and I can see them without trying to strain to look, always a plus for me.

    Very kewl imposing/frightening look to him. I wish I could do clothes and metal that good. And of course the flaming head just makes my head explode! heh heh 🙂
