Your challenge this week is to create an original Centaur 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, April 8th.

  1. Should you really have an article picture with partial nudity in a contest where such things are banned?

    Oh my God I did not even notice!

    @Drinkfluid: Too funny. My issue is that Centaurs in Greek literature and mythology are exclusively male. Not to say that there are not female human-animal hybrids in Greek or any other culture. I’m just pointing out historical fact.

    Since this is a friendly and informal challenge, I’m not going to deduct points for non-traditional characters or designs. If I was a professor of Classical Literature or even a producer of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, I would raise an eyebrow, wag a finger, or face palm. 😉

  5. Centaurides were female centaurs found in Greek Mythology.

    I stand corrected. Good thing that I’m not a professor of Classical Literature.

    Inspired to do a female centaur, if nothing but out of spite (jk Atomic Punk). Actually, I wanted to do a female from the start, but the previous posts were too funny.

    No real backstory for this one.. Just some female warrior from a tribe of centaurs.

  8. Contest closed. Results posted shortly.
