The winning entries for all HeroMachine contests.

Character Of The Year- The Results

Last years COTY final poll got 145 votes overall. This year, we almost doubled that, getting 275 votes. As with last year, I’ll run down our top 3, in ascending order.

And in at Number 1, with 90 votes is….

Character Design Contest ♯102 (Christmas Trees) Winner

Well, it seems that after having a few close polls over the last couple of contests, it’s back to business as usual now. That means, it was a walk over, with the winner thanking near as makes no difference half the vote. And you can’t really say that Cliff and his Solstice Tree didn’t deserve it. So congrats Cliff (hope you’re feeling better now btw), please speak to dblade about your prize, and thanks to everyone else who entered. The CDC’s will be returning after the new year, see y’all then.

102 Cliff- SolsticeTree

Character Of The Year- Final

This poll will be open from now until Christmas Eve, so make sure you vote for your favourite lots during that time, because remember, whoever wins is going in the HOF.

Note: Poll 4 ended in a draw (nice and rhyme), so I have included both of the winners from that poll here for the sake of fairness (plus we usually have 5 entries in a poll, so it makes sense really).

Anyway, pop below the break for my run down of this years finalists.

Character Design Contest ♯102 (Christmas Trees) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯101 (Snowmen) Winner

Character Design Contest ♯101 (Snowmen) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯100 (HM3 Redesigns)- Winner

That’s right, singular this week. We actually had an outright winner this time…. I know, amazing isn’t it. Two people did run away with this poll from the start, between them accumulating 70% of the votes between them. But our winner was always in a clear lead and it was obvious who was going to win from when the votes started coming in. And I’m ok with that, because it gives me a chance to say something that hasn’t been said in a couple of years. And isn’t it ironic that, to round of the triumvirate of version challenges, the person who wins the HM3 challenge is none other than Zyp, for his redesign of Melmo44’s Phaeya. congratulations Zyp, please speak to dblade about your prize, and well done to everyone else who entered, not just this challenge but all three of the version challenges, it’s been great fun.

Character Design Contest ♯99 (HM2.5)- Winners

No typo.

In an unprecedented turn of events, I have come to the conclusion that someone is taking the piss. How the hell do we end up with two draws two weeks running? Would someone please like to explain that to me. It must be much harder to choose between creations made on the older versions on the ‘machine than I thought.

Anyway, this weeks winners are Shadaout for Darkwing Enforger and Vampyrist for Carver. As with last week, I’ll leave it to you guys to sort out what’s going on with the prize. Well done to our two winners, the other poll competitors (it was actually a very close poll, 8 votes between all of them) and to everyone who entered.
