Thrusting Swords

That title sounds like a romance novel, doesn’t it? Oh my.

Regardless, what it actually means is that I have published the following items to ItemRight-Blades. The intent is that you can combine the angled hilts with the angled blades to create the effect of a sword coming more towards the viewer rather than being held parallel to the plane of the canvas.


Robot Hand

Per request from AMS, a new relaxed robot hand is now live in HandRight-Standard:


It’s basically one of the items from Gloves with the glove part removed. Thanks to dblade for the original hand pose.

Side Hands

We already have one sort of similar item, but I just uploaded the following additions to HandRight-Standard:


They can be used either for just hanging down empty for a slightly different posed look, or to imitate holding another item at something less than a straight-out-to-the-side angle.

Coming soon: swords that come out at an angle towards the viewer.

The Remnant Sale Goes On

When I went to clean up the attic, I still found a few things that need to get away.
Hmm, I wonder what I might find if I do take a look in the basement… ;)

Winter Sale @ Mad Jack’s Rag Shop

With the new year already started, the old stuff has to go to clear my stock for the new delivery of goods.
If you are interested to purchase these items, you just have to clear your cache. ;)

Pistol Fronts

I’ve just added the following guns-pointing-at-you to ItemRight-Pistols. Enjoy!


There’s already one revolver in this orientation, but this one’s a little more of a modern version and different enough to be worth including, I hope.

Body Shop Delivery Arrived

Just rolled off the assembly line and already available under “Body/Mech”:
I hope you can make use of it. ;)

Female Body Alternate Added

The female version of the Body Alternate set is now live for HeroMachine 3. It’s all what you’d expect, except I did change the “toon” body quite a bit from its male iteration:



Suit Up!

Hi all! Marx here, once and future contributing artist, with my first Blog post.

I noticed awhile back that if the hero your are designing is a suit-wearing type of hero, you really only have one choice of suit in HM3. When Jeff offered me the chance to come back and draw for HM3 after a long hiatus, I thought I’d start by expanding the options for the well-dressed hero. Because sometimes you want a picture of Superman, but sometimes you want a picture of Clark Kent.

I started with the existing single-breasted suit jacket and added three more jacket styles that all use the same sleeves as the original. I also added an open jacket and pushed-back open jacket for when you want to reveal a bit more of what’s underneath. You can find them all in the Tops > MaleCoats set. (also duplicated for the FemaleCoats set.)

The elbow joint seen above in the lower right corner will hopefully make bent arm poses a bit more graceful. In addition, I added two new ties in the Neckwear > Standard set, and a folded pocket handkerchief to the Insignia > Standard set.

Then, just to show off all these new fashion choices, I put together a picture of four not-at-all-copyright-infringing, suit-wearing characters that I like to call “The Billionaire Boys Club.”

Four non-copyright infringing characters wearing four different styles of suits.

Hope you all find them useful.

Woohoo – Nice Legs, Buddy!

Well, I thought some demon/dino/satyr/orwhatever legs might come in handy with certain foot items. So, now available under BodyMale / Alternate:


And since I’m gonna be away for a few days:
