The winning entries for all HeroMachine contests.

Character Design Contest ♯96 (Mad Scientists and Monsters) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯95 (Smells Like Team Spirit) Winner

Ok, first off I have to say that this week poll was ridiculous. Previously, there record for one of these polls was 216 votes and last week I made a big thing about the fact that the winner got over 100 votes. Well this week, the person who came in 5th place got more votes than last week winner and the total vote count ended up at 626 votes, more than double the previous record. I have absolutely no idea where all those votes came from, but it did make the contest interesting. Every single entrant was in front at some point during the week and it ended up with there being only one point between first and second. But of course, one point makes all the difference, especially for this weeks winner, Blunt Object and his team the Deaths Head Squadron. Congrats Blunt Object, make sure you see dblade about your prize, and well done to all of our other entrants, especially the finalists, you obviously impressed this week.

Character Design Contest ♯95 (Smells Like Team Spirit) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯94 (Going Japanese)- Winner

Well, that has to be the most decisive CDC win we’ve ever had. Overall there were  194 votes cast for this poll and our winner received 109 of them, which is a bit of Overkill actually ;) and a bit unfair on the other contestants IMO, but y’all voted not me. I also believe its the first time anyone has achieved over 100 votes in a CDC poll, which is not bad going. So congratulations to Vectorman316 whose piece Samurai Fight Scene was this weeks steamroller. Make sure you speak to dblade about you prize.

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.
