CDC #373 – Team Building – Part 13 – Prize for Brons

Love a rainy day of Machining. The original by Brons...

My take...

Congrats again!

CDC #374 – Team Building – Part 14

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character. The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

Your challenge this week is to design and name the 7th and final member of the villain squad. His name is James Cox, and he is a 35 year old male. While he has no superpowers to speak of, he is incredibly intelligent, is a master of trickery. a relentless practical joker, and is a bit of a wise-ass. He refers to himself as his team’s “Fan Favourite”. As a result, even his fellow villains don’t particularly like him. Be sure to check out the costume colours of the past winners in the links posted below before deciding on the colours for your entry.

CDC #373 – Team Building – Part 13 – Results

We have a lot to get to today, so buckle up! Here we go!

First, I need to address the elephant in the room. The gorgeous elephant in the room...

Anansi by Christi S. It is a stunning piece of work, that in my opinion elevates HM to a new level. It does not belong in a CDC, it deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame. So if Jeff, JR or Kaldath are reading this, please consider this beautiful piece of work for admission into the HM Hall of Fame.

Many of you upped your back story game this week. No one more so than Calvary Red.  The story of young Tanaka Hikari's journey to becoming  Amaterasu is detailed and quite riveting. Well done you!

Runner Up this week goes to Yin for Athena.

The pose and highlighting are very well done. My only negative is that the costume seems a bit disjointed. But overall, very well done.

And the win this week goes to...

Your challenge this week is to design and name the 7th and final member of the hero squad. The only guidance I will give you is that she is recognized as the most powerful group member, and has ties to ancient mythology. The rest is up to your creativity and imagination. As a reminder the other squad members are Ages, Bluejay, Magus, Stormwing, Veloz and Uriah. Be sure to check out the costume colours of the past winners before deciding on the colours for your entry.

Your challenge this week is to design and name an important and influential member of the villain squad. Her name is Janine, and she is 16 years old. She is the twin sister of Jason Chapman aka Uriah. Separated from her brother by the foster care system, neither has any knowledge of the other. Only Dr. Epoch is aware of the truth; a truth that will one day make one of them switch their alliance in a violent rampage. Janine carries a similar trait to Jason ie: morphing, but whereas Jason morphs into a single entity, Janine has the ability to morph into any animal at will. Your entry must show Janine in both her un-morphed, as well as one of her morphed personas.
