HM3: Tardis Control

I’ve just uploaded Watson Bradshaw’s prize for winning Caption Contest 104, a Tardis-style control panel now available in Background-Standard:

HM3: dblade’s got legs, and he knows how to use them

With thanks once again to the tireless dblade for drawing them, I’ve just posted the following items to “Body-Male-Standard” (female versions to follow … some time):

These are essentially some of the existing paired legs, separated, I believe. Hope you like them!

Wingin’ it

With many and profound thanks to dblade for drawing them, I am happy to announce that I have just uploaded the following set of items to the Backplane-Wings set for HeroMachine 3. As you can see, they’re outstanding:

I realize segmented spider legs aren’t exactly “wings” but I had the file open anyway and couldn’t think of a more logical place. So nyah.


HM3: Itempalooza

We’re very lucky to have the indefatigable dblade drawing items for use in HeroMachine 3, and getting them to me in a format that’s super easy to import. I’ve had quite the backlog of submissions from him waiting in the wings for a long while, and am happy to finally get them posted.

This also marks the debut of new contributor Zachary Hamilton, who provided the neat “Blades of Chaos” you see towards the bottom of the sample image.

From top-right to bottom-left, you can find these items in Male/Female-FantasyArmor; Tops-Female-Coats; Shoulder-Right; Tops-Male/Female-Coats; Foot-Right; Item-Right-BladesTwo; and Body-Zombies.

Be sure to thank dblade and Zachary in the comments! I did have to redraw the coats to fit on the female form, which is what took most of the day, otherwise they’d have been up very quickly.

Next, on to the Replacement Prize list!

HM3: Female Profile Heads

Finishing up Kytana’s contest prize, I’ve just added the following two female heads in profile to the Head-Female-Standard set:

Note that I’ve left the eyes totally blank, so you can use the separate pupils and eyeballs from the Eyes-Standard set to make her look whichever way you want.

Character Contest Prize: Creeper

Borntobealoser requested a creeper or some other “Minecraft” item as his prize for winning Character Contest 66. Rather than doing the big pixellated version you see in the actual game, I decided to do something more interpretive, inspired by this Scifer take. Hope you like it, BTBAL! It is now live in Companions-Standard.

HM3: Turned heads

Kytana requested a “profile head” for her Character Contest 68 prize. I’ve put up three versions in Head-Male-Standard as a test — let me know what you think. It didn’t make sense to me to leave off the nose, mouth, and eyes, since there aren’t any profile-view versions of those.

HM3: Kimono

I’ve just uploaded the following kimono to Tops-Female-Dresses in HeroMachine 3 as Chasca’s prize for winning Character Contest 69.

HM3: Viking ship

While we’re waiting on John’s big contest decision, here’s a companion to the galley galleon ship I did the other day for Frevoli, now live in Companion-Vehicles:

As before, color1 is the sail, which is where items masked to the ship will appear. Enjoy!

HM3: Galley

Frevoli requested an oceangoing pirate type galley for his Caption Contest 102 victory, and I’ve just posted it to Companion-Vehicles. I made the sails color1, so you can Mask an insignia or whatever to them, creating the effect of a pattern just on the sails without going onto the wood part. The light gray in the preview is a 30% black screen so it will look more like those parts are in shadow. Enjoy!
