Harley-Quinn-1

 

 

The usual rules apply, You are limited to Three (3) entries which are due by 12 noon Eastern Time on Monday February 17th.  Of course I expect you to keep your entries no worse then PG-13 in nature and that you follow all the normal rules of the forum when writing your caption for the above image. That being said I wish you all Good luck!

Character Ideas

Sometimes the wellspring of invention runs dry and you need some help coming up with a cool concept for a character to design. If that happens to you, or if you’re just looking for a challenge, experience what it’s like to take someone else’s vision and bring it to life. Head on over to Reddit’s “Character Drawing” subreddit and look for entries marked “[LFA]” (Looking For Art). People give descriptions of their characters and you can reply with your version.

If you do, please tell them you came from HeroMachine and give the link. Also, I’d love to hear about it as well.

Good luck and have fun creating!

Character Design Contest ♯60- Old School: Elementals

Ok guys, back to the OS challenges, and this week I want you to create an elemental hero or villain, that is a character that can control some sort of elemental power (e.g. Fire). Your character can be modern, silver or golden age in style, but I want to see them using their powers, so fire effects, bolts of electricity, jets of water, all that stuff.

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.

Character Design Contest ♯59- Chinese New Year

hm3-beta

 

Ok, so we’re going to take a break from the “Old School” challenges this week, as it was recently Chinese New Year and, whilst there have been contests based around the signs of the western zodiac on the blog before, we’ve never had one based around the Chinese Zodiac. So that is your challenge this week, make a hero or villain based on one of the twelve Zodiac animals shown above (that is; Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig). It’ll be interesting to see what you come up with here. One proviso, a rule specific for this week, you must use the zodiac insignias shown in the picture above. These can be found on the last two pages of Insignias- Nature.

This week there will be a limit on entries, each person can only enter once per Zodiac Sign, so that is only 12 entries per person, but since no-one ever enters that many times, I don’t suppose it really matters. 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.
