ATUQTUAQ KUMAGLAK was born in January of 1940 in the remote Qikiqtaaluk area of Canada’s high arctic. While his quiet almost spiritual demeanor made him an unlikely hero, it was his ability to physically transform that brought him to the attention of the ILJ.
When ATU senses a threat or sees others in distress, he transforms into Inukshuk, a solid stone creature sworn to protect all those in peril. He joined the ILJ in 1961.
Your challenge this week is to design two images of ATU; one dressed in his ILJ costume, and one as his fully transformed alter ego, Inukshuk. You can choose to do these as separate images or present both on the same piece.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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 warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).
This contest will close on Sunday, February 12th at 9:00am Eastern.
