Character Design Challenge #318 – Classic With A Twist

Classic With A Twist challenges are fairly straightforward. Basically you are charged with taking a traditional character and introducing a new and original take on them.

Your challenge this week is to take Frankenstein’s monster and add your own original twist. Perhaps your version has a steampunk vibe, or maybe your monster is re-imagined as part human, part animal. It’s up to you, so just have fun with it. There is no limit on number of entries.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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 warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Sunday, April 23rd at 9:00am Eastern.

  1. alright, so i’m a massive undertale fan, so my take is based on some spoileriffic enemies from the pacifist ending.

  2. Frankenstein’s monster was actually created from both human and animal parts according to the original book, so a hybrid appearance would be a clever callback to the original…

    Okay so I was going to take Sean’s idea and just make Frankenstein’s monster but as gorilla, but then I thought what if I gave him robot parts. Oh and A cape. My mind work in weird ways. So with that I present
    Frankenstein’s Cyborg Gorilla that wears a cape for some reason.
