Character Design Contest ♯131- All In One

Considering we've had a months worth of contests covering posing, costume, faces/ hairstyles and backgrounds, what's the logical next step?

That's right, all of them together!

So, that's you challenge this week. Your entry must include a non-standard posed character with an interesting costume, face and/or hairstyle and there must also be a background. Simple enough for me to say, but I know this will be a challenge for some people. Also, there are some people to whom this is their bread and butter, so getting on the poll is going to be tough.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). 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.

    Tomie Rain the Reality King
    The most unrealistic character you’ve ever seen. Maybe?
    By the way I accidentally wrote his name wrong in the picture

    Well here’s my entry: HeatStroke.

    I’m not sure if the mask is allowed, if not please tell me and I will do a version without.

  6. Garrett Garrett says:

    Here is my entry.

    I’m calling it Cybernetic Surfer.

    Note: Originally, I wasn’t going to add the cybernetics and just go with a general surfer, but I looked over the contest again and saw that the piece needed to have some kind of “costume” so I’m really hoping the cyber parts as well as the shorts DO count as a costume.

    Sorry, Outcast, but as anyone who’s seen some of MY characters before will tell you, he’s not even close! 😉
    I LIKE him, mind you, and I like the fact that you gave him at least a bit of a story,
    but Major Mismatch can take him, easily, in an unreality contest!
    Then, there’s my REALLY weird stuff! 😉

    Hmm. Considering the amount of competition, I guess I could enter another picture. The pose isn’t terribly ambitious, but I think it might still qualify?

    Oh, WillyPete you’ve messed with the wrong person let me see your major mismatch. I haven’t been in this game long but I damn well know you don’t know nothing! And what About Mr.Change.

    Sorry, Outcast…
    Looks like both Photobucket and ImageShack have deleted my files…
    Not surprising since I’ve rarely done anything there since UGO shut down,
    though I am very disappointed. {Grumble, mutter….}

    Skalla, She Who Bows to None- Queen and one of the first Warriors of her people. The omens of her birth and her white-blonde hair and amber eyes singled her out for greatness, and it was even rumored she was the daughter of the smith-goddess herself. She wielded the Blade Oelik Munar (‘Star Omen’) in battle.

    What the heck has happened to Hero Machine? It’s totally reconfigured! Took me the longest time to even find the Blog.
    Normally we have a heads up for any upcoming change, particularly this major.

  13. Avatar cliff says:

    OK I saw tbe announcement, sorry for my previous post

  14. Avatar WillyPete says:

    That’s okay, Cliff, I was just about to say something similar… I actually kind of like it now that I’ve figured out how to navigate it (I think), but it WAS a bit of a surprise!
