HM3: Headbanging Good!

HM3_Items_092015

 

Whiz Bang presents the winning items from Poll #001. Ocean Master Helmet (well, it's kind of masky if you ask me) and Ant Man Helmet. You can find Ocean Master in Headgear/Fantasy and the Ant Man Helmet in Headgear/Military. I also created some ears using the Ocean Master artwork. These can be found in Ears/Standard. In addition I made a bishop hat (perfect for evil priest concepts), a crown-like headpiece ( I designed this for my villain character, Sovereign), and another piece that reminds me of an eraser head (I'm sure the Machinists will find some use for it). The bishop hat and crown piece can be found in Headgear/Fantasy and the eraser/stump hat can be found in Headgear/Modern. I've also included the Japanese mask that I made for Weilyn. I hadn't pointed out that this had gone live when I first uploaded it weeks ago so I included it with this post. It can be found in Headgear/Mask.

Whiz Bang Item Creation Poll Reborn! (Poll#001)

It's been awhile. I know. I want to get back into item creation and my favorite thing to do is make polls and let the Machinists decide what I create next. I'm not sure what kind of schedule I'm going to follow but I'm thinking every other week to get started.

"But you choose what goes in the poll, so really you are choosing from your choices and we Machinists are choosing one of the choices you have already chosen. It seems a bit deceptive to say that we Machinists have a real choice in the matter."

What!?!? Who said that?  (smoke bomb)

Poll is closed! Antman Helmet and Ocean Master Helmet were so close during the poll vote that I decided to do them both. Here is a preview of the art pieces! Antman Helmet will be three pieces and I made additional ears from the Ocean Master artwork.

For those of you who have been waiting anxiously for more shapes to be added to the Machine, your prayers have been answered! These shapes can now be found in Insignia/Shapes.

HM3: Boots, Belts, and Badashery

Moar as promised.

Some prize winners from the past. Vectorman316's prize request was the boots. These can be found in FootRight/MaleTech and Legwear/Kneepads. And Yautja's prize request was the belt/suspenders/pouch which can be found in Belt/Military.

I hope you don't mind but I got really swoll so I could model these items properly.

HeroMachine 2 Desktop Edition Now Available!

download-screenshot

After way too long and a lot of requests later, I've finally bundled all of the most current HeroMachine 2 items and the larger-canvas, no-ad layout into a downloadable bundle! This used to be an option back in the day when the program was available on a very smart-looking CD. Now it's a digital-only download, making it possible to use HeroMachine 2 without an Internet connection on your local computer.

It will come as a ZIP archive, just extract it into whatever folder you want on your computer, then double-click heromachine2.html to launch it in your favorite browser to enjoy always-available, no-ad character creation.

Note that since it still requires the Flash Player plugin, it will not work on iPads or iPhones. Desktops and laptops and Android devices are of course fine.

Click here, just $9.95!

HM3: Merry X-Mas Possums!!!

Ho ho ho! Christmas is coming and Santa Jack brings you some gifts. For, as the saying goes, it is more blessed to give than to receive._previews_blog_xmas2014
I've put a "few" new items in the 'machine, but since my usual preview picture would probably go beyond the constraints of the blog, I've posted it after the jump ... 😉
