Character Design Challenge #499 – The Countdown to 500! – Creative Item Use


Above is a piece that I did for one of JR’s CDCs which limited item use to Backgrounds and Insignias

With CDC #500 just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to run a bit of a skills competition. So part 3 is all about creative item use.
Your challenge is to create an image of your choice using items in Backgrounds and Insignias only.
Enter as 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 (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like http://www.heromachine.com/forum, Image Shack, 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 files 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, June 20th at 10:00 am Eastern.
*Be sure to drop by and check out next week’s CDC #500. Surprises are in store!

    Been struggling for any kind of ideas lately, so this is far from one of my better efforts. This is a re-imagining of the symbols for the Gods Bane, Myrkul and Bhaal from the Frogotten Realms (TM) Fantasy setting.

    So are these copyrighted images?

    Contest closed. Only one entry this week, so this week’s default winner is Scott Weyers.

    Not sure, the originals likely are. But I think mine are different enough that it shouldn’t matter.
