Character Design Contest ♯65- Free For All

Ok guys, this week there is no category for the challenge, you can just enter what you want (so long as it sticks within the blog rules obviously). So just go wild. You don’t have to enter with something made specifically for this contest, but it can’t be something you’ve entered into a contest before. And also, as a special stipend, you’ve only got one entry into the contest this week, so make it something special.

As I said, only one entry per person this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Character Design Contest ♯64- Bad Superpowers

So, this week I want you guys to come up with a character that has a bad or useless superpower. By bad/ useless, I mean something that you couldn’t use in a combat situation (see the Inferior 5) or that has a drawback so bad that it can’t be used (e.g. being able to explode your body, but only once). I won’t be too strict on these, just so long as you give a decent explanation for why it’s a bad power.

As usual, no entry limit and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
