CDC #353 – Mermaids

Your challenge this week is to create an original mermaid character.

Enter a often as you like!

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. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. 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 :,ImageShack, Deviant Art or whatever);Do not use Photobucket.

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • 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 at 9am Eastern on Sunday, February 25th.

    Mermaid knights don’t use weapons; their skin is covered in dermal denticles, like those of a shark, and their ears are incredibly sharp.

    Any potential Bullet Hell RPG references are completely coincidental… heh heh heh… (runs)

  3. I have tried using both Explorer and Chrome and cannot view your entry. If you can repost it on HeroMachine forums or a different image hosting site like Deviant Art that would be great. Photobucket has become so problematic that I even requested that entrants do not use it in the contest description.

    I made this one along with a male counterpart, a sea sorceress with control over the tides. I’ve always liked the idea of very alien and androgynous mermaids, with very sharp teeth.
