This week I’m going to give you a bit more freedom. You can design a character, scene, background, weapon or device, just so long as it has a post apocalyptic feeling/ setting. I’m sure you don’t need me to give you examples of post apocalyptic settings, but think ruined cities, dust-bowls, desert gangs, stuff like that.

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.

Character Design Contest ♯72- Mythological Creatures

Salutations my fellow ‘machiners. For this weeks contest I would like you to take a look at this here list of creatures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mythological_creatures (well, it’s more of a collection of lists, but you get the idea) and re-imagine something from it. Beware though, you’re gonna have to be really good if you do a dragon or a fairy or the like, because I’d like to see originality here. I mean, we did fantasy a few weeks ago and there are more legends than have been used in any fantasy setting, so try to come up with something unusual ok. But yeah, anything on any of those lists is fair game, from the A Bao A Qu to the Zunbera-Bo. So with that all said, I look forward to seeing what y’all can come up with.

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.

Character Design Contest ♯71- Scenery

So guys, this week I want you to create an awesome background scene. So that means I don’t want a character, just the background. You can include people in the scene but the main focus must be the scenery its self. This should be fun.

Special Contest for JJ Baskin

The man who introduced my wife and I seventeen years ago, our good friend JJ Baskin, has just been diagnosed with brain cancer. He’s a wonderful man, an incredible father, and a fantastic husband. He and his family are concentrating on staying positive and focusing on the fight with an eye to a long and happy future, so I want to help bring them a little lightness in this dark time.

So I’ve added a drawing of JJ to the “Head-Winners” set of HeroMachine 3 items (because one thing he definitely is, is a winner!):

jj

Your challenge is to create a character featuring JJ’s likeness somewhere (presumably on the end of the neck where it would normally go, but I know you all well enough to know by now that “normal” doesn’t necessarily apply!). He loves to laugh, always with a joke at the ready and a kind or sarcastic word as the occasion permits, so feel free to go for humor if you like. Or sci-fi, fantasy, modern warrior, whatever you like. He’s got a great group of supporters who are called “JJ’s Fight Club”:

jjfightclub
You’ve got one week (until Saturday, May 3) two weeks (until Saturday, May 10) to submit your entry, and normal contest rules apply.

I’ll select a winner, who will receive their choice of a free custom color illustration by me; a custom item to go in any HM3 slot; or their likeness to join JJ’s in the Winners set. I’ll also post some or all of the entries to JJ’s Facebook wall by way of encouragement, I think he’ll get a kick out of them.

Thanks in advance for your positive energy, your creativity, and for the happiness seeing all of your entries will hopefully bring JJ and his family!

Character Design Contest ♯70- Fantasy

So guys, this week I want you to create a character from a fantasy setting. So I want warriors and wizards, elves and ogres, dwarves and dragons, goblins, gremlins mages and alchemists. Basically, if it’s in Dungeons and Dragons or a J.R.R Tolkien book it is applicable here. I know a few people on here to whom this sort of stuff is their bread and butter, so this should be good.
