Category Archives: HeroMachine 3
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.
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:
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.”
Hope you all find them useful.
Well, I thought some demon/dino/satyr/orwhatever legs might come in handy with certain foot items. So, now available under BodyMale / Alternate:
I’ve just added a “few” items I had lying around to HeroMachine3. Hope you enjoy it…
You might have to clear your cache for the new stuff to appear.
Since I had it drawn anyway for a “super hero pet” commission, I went ahead and added this little fellow into Companion Standard. Because this is much more practical than skiing through the air on flying fish.
I just added the following items to the Background-Landscapes set:
A couple of those are lakes/ponds/bodies of water. As you can see there are a few requested items (the mesa, the cave front, the big cactus) as well as a number of trees, some grass, etc. Hopefully this will help bring your settings to life.
