The winning entries for all HeroMachine contests.

Character Design Contest ♯94 (Going Japanese) Poll

Ok, I feel some people may not be happy with some of the choices I’ve made for this weeks poll, or rather some of my choices of entries to leave out. So after the jump I’ll explain why I chose these five out of all the entries.

Character Design Contest ♯93 (Here Come The Girls)- Winner

I’m sure some members of the community will be glad to hear that our first “all female” contest wasn’t won by the picture with the least clothes or the most “circular emblems and the adolescent vote” showing, but in fact was won by our most dressed entrant with the most blood showing. This weeks winner, claiming his third win I believe, is Stulte for his Maria I Briganza. Congratulations Stulte, please make sure you speak to dblade about your prize, and well done to everyone else who entered, there were so many excellent entries.

Character Design Contest ♯92 (PD Redesigns)- Winner

This weeks winner will be a surprise to no-one, especially considering people were already calling the result by mid-week. And it is a pretty comprehensive victory when you can get over 10 more votes than the rest of the competition combined. So congratulations to Carmen whose piece The Strange Case of Hannah Jekyll & Edith Hyde was the instigator of this weeks steamroller (please make sure you speak to dblade about your prize), and well done to everyone else who entered.

Character Design Contest ♯91 (7 Deadly Sins) Winner

I can honestly say I’m completely unsurprised by the result of this weeks poll. As I’ve said before, there are just some times when you can tell which entry is going to win and this was one of those times. It probably helped that our winner was the only person brave enough to try out not only doing all 7 sins in one picture, but making them abstracts as well. So I’m happy to say that our winner is Stulte for his The Seven. Congrats man, that’d be your second I believe, and well done to everyone else who entered.

91 Stulte- The Seven

Character Design Contest ♯91 (7 Deadly Sins) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯90 (Insect Themed) Winner

This weeks poll was a two horse race right from the start, with two of our entrants running away with 70% of the votes. But even though it was close between them for most of the week, there can only be one winner. And that winner is Skybandit for his Stinging Mantis. Congrats Sky, your first win in a while I believe, and thanks to everyone else who entered.

90 Skybandit- Stinging Mantis

Character Design Contest ♯90 (Insect Themed) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯89 (Everyday Heroes) Winner

This weeks poll ended nice and close, only two votes between our top two, who had been trading places all week. But I guess homaging certain iconic images does pay off, because this weeks winner is BabyVroomVroom for their character Gust. Congrats BVV and well done to everyone else who entered.

89 BabyVroomVroom- Gust
