The winning entries for all HeroMachine contests.

Character Design Contest ♯121 (Fight Club) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯120 (Film Posters) Winner

Wow, we actually had a close poll for 2 weeks in a row. Well, when I say close poll I mean it was close between the top 2. No-one else was in sight, which is weird because I don’t think that there was a noticeable quality difference to warrant an almost 50 vote gap between 2nd and 3rd places. But anyways. it ended up being one of those contests where the top 2 exchanged places throughout the week and it could have ended with either coming out on top. But as it turns out, the person to come out of top was in fact Hawk007 for his Athanasia film poster, claiming what I believe to be his first CDC victory. Congrats Hawk and well done to everyone who entered, especially our finalists, sorry that most of you got trampled in the poll.

120 Hawk007- Athanasia

Character Design Contest ♯120 (Film Posters) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯119 (Comic Book Covers) Winner

You want to know something insane. This weeks winner hasn’t won a CDC since the first contest of last year! I was sure he’d won one more recently than that. Or maybe I’m just getting muddled because of some of he COTW’s from last year? Either way, this weeks winner is RobM for his Minute Smasher cover. Congrats Rob and well done to everyone else who entered.

Character Design Contest ♯119 (Comic Book Covers 2) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯118 (Non-Standard) Winner

Well, that was nice. We haven’t managed to break the 200 vote mark on one of the contest polls for a while, but this week we did. And unlike the last two polls, it wasn’t a major walk-over for our eventual winner, though they did take the win by a noticeable margin. And, if I’m being honest, it was kinda expected (much like last week winner was no surprise) that Carmen‘s Just As Good As A Spotlight would win this week. Congrats Carmen and well done to all our other entrants.

118 Carmen- Just As Good As A Spotlight

Character Design Contest ♯118 (Non-Standard) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯117 (Inspired By Music (Again)) Winner

Okaaaaaaay. Well then. I look away for a week and come back to find my poll has been completely flattened by some manic in a steamroller. Yeah, I know the pic is awesome, but I wasn’t expecting it to get double the votes of all the other poll entrants combined, that’s taking it a bit far don’t you think? But anyway, taking the win this week, for a truly beautiful piece of art, is Thundersong for The Moon Represents My Heart. Congratulations Thundersong and sorry to everyone else who entered that you had to get flattened like that.

117 Thundersong- The Moon Represents my Heart

Character Design Contest ♯117 (Inspired By Music) Poll

Songs that inspired these pieces (listen to whilst viewing art please)

Cliff- Satyr Song

Hawk007- Heart Of Courage

Hexadecimal- Saw theme

Malfar-Злодей и шапка

Thundersong- The Moon Represents My Heart

Mod Note: Ok, so before anyone says anything in the comments, I chose these entries for the poll on how well I felt the represented the song they had chosen and only on that criteria. You might disagree, but that’s just how things go sometimes. So please, listen to the songs before you vote, because something being on the poll that didn’t make sense before may do after listening to the songs.

Character Design Contest ♯116 (Easter Eggs) Winner

Well that was an eggs-tremely good contest, full of eggs-ellent entries (and eggs-cruciating puns) and the poll was particularly hard boiled, I mean fought. But I can’t say the result was un-eggs-pected, considering our winner had the lead from pretty much the first day. In fact, one might even say that he found this poll… over easy (ba dum bum tish). So, coming out sunny side up this week is Nug for his Dragon Egg. Congratulations Nug and well done to everyone else who entered. As your prize I shall now stop making terrible egg puns (even though it is great fun).

116 Nug- dragon egg
