Cool Characters


Character Of The Week: Linea24- Lilac Rose’s Mishap

If you really need me to explain why I’ve chosen this weeks featuree (is that a word? It is now) as Character Of The week, I’d suggest you get your eyes checked, and possibly return them to the manufacturer, because they’re obviously faulty. See what I mean? Linea says it’s all just insignias, but I… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: Stulte- Spirit 11

I’m kinda bending my own rules here this week, because I said that I wouldn’t be featuring any entries for the Character Design Contests. However, considering that this one was entered for a contest during the Forum down time and Stulte has only just got round to posting it, plus it’s only one of six… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: Therianthrope- Giovanni

This weeks COTW I had to feature not only because of the fact it’s a great image, but for all of the symbolism included and the thought that went into it. Ok, we’ll kick off with the usual stuff. The shading is excellent. There is a chance that when you do shading with near full… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: Vectorman316- Justice Sandwich

Character of the Week is back weekly again. And what better way to kick it off than with a creation so brilliantly bonkers it makes DeliriousAl’s comments look normal 😉 Where exactly do I start. Well, it’s a sandwich with a cape. What’s not to love. I could try and be all sensible and professional… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: Mudslide by Anarchangel

Ah, the lesser spotted COTW post, some what of an endangered species, mostly due to the fact I want it to be special when I do post it, so it’s not weekly anymore. But anyway, just because the forums are down doesn’t mean we’re not getting awesome artwork to feature. For example, Anarchangel posted this… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: The Forsaken by Valyndril

So, two days ago, this new guy starts a thread on the forums, begins filling it up with work that literally causes peoples minds to be blown. I mean, some of the effects he’s doing with heromachine I’ve only ever seen done in photoshop and the like. Then, today he posts this; Do I really… [ Read more … ]

Character Of The Week: Candruth- Summer Flight

I know I don’t do Character Of The Week as a regular blog post anymore but I thought I might as well bring it back as a one off because I feel that this picture is in need of being singled out for sheer awesomeness. Now, Cadruth has been doing a lot of truly amazing… [ Read more … ]

Creators Club Poster 2014

Ok guys, I’ve finished putting together this years Creators Club poster. First, I’d like to thank all the creators who entered, seeing all your work was really awesome. Sorry, a few people didn’t send me the text files for their entries so they didn’t end up on the poster (I struggled to fit everyone on… [ Read more … ]

Jackrabbit Cover Design: Costumes

I’ve done a couple of covers for Friend of HeroMachine and author Ian Thomas Healy. The next book up in his “Just Cause” series is a more humorous super-hero story titled “Jackrabbit”. We thought it might be fun to include you all in the cover design process, so over the next couple of weeks I’ll… [ Read more … ]

Strut Your Stuff!

From time to time I like to make a place for you all to show off your best stuff. So in the comments, paste a link to your favorite HeroMachine drawing, or maybe one that you feel like hasn’t gotten enough attention, or just something you have done that you think is awesome. It doesn’t… [ Read more … ]
