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.

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 ♯86- Western Zodiac

Now, back when Jeff ran the CDCs, he did a series of challenges based around the western zodiac. I seem to recall them being quite popular, so lets have another go at them shall we, because I’m sure y’all have improved on heromachine since then. The idea is simple, create a character or a representation of any of the 12 signs of the zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces).

This week, obviously due to the fixed number of zodiac signs, there is a limit of 12 entries (that’s one entry per sign per person) and, as usual, 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.
