Character Design Contest ♯89- Everyday Superheroes

Ok, before we get into this weeks contest, I feel I have an apology to make. Last week I neglected to post the contest and, if I’m honest, I have no good explanation why. I just forgot. I have a feeling I was doing something at the time, my entire family was home so it would be a fair assumption, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was. So, I apologise for missing the contest. I’ll try to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

So, with that out of the way, let’s get on to business. What I want you guys to do, it create a superhero or villain in everyday clothes, like Heroes or Marvels The Runaways. Powers must be shown, but what those powers are does not matter. All characters must be able to fit in to normal society, so no monstrous mutations or green skinned aliens (unless you can show them blending in to human form in some manner), your characters must be indistinguishable from any other person you’d see walking down the street in your local town (minus the super-powers obviously).

As per usual, no limits on entries 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 ♯87- Time Travel

So, this’ll be a fun one. I want you guys to create a time travelling character for me this week, in honour of the return of Doctor Who this coming Saturday. It doesn’t matter how they travel through time (provided obviously that it isn’t by TARDIS, because that’s copyrighted) or, if you feel so inclined as to put them in a scene, where they end up, I just want to see some cool time travellers.

As per usual, no limits on entries 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.
