The latest happenings on all things HeroMachine.

Back From The Basement

Coff coff. Did’nt you hear my screaming? I was trapped in a humongous cobweb on my way to the basement. It took me days to get out of it while hiding from that monster spider.

But hey – guess what I found, when I finally got downstairs? An old tattoo parlor! What, you don’t believe me? Well, I brought prove. Therefore you’ll find 3 new sets with a total of 360 (!) tattoo motives in the insignia category: Insignia/TattoosAnimal, Insignia/TattoosMisc, and Insignia/TattoosTribals.

If you don’t know what to do with them, maybe take a look in this forum thread, where I posted a few characters that I’ve done with photoshop some time ago. Of course you will find all the materials I used there in the new sets. So, there you go – have at it… ;)
Phew, now I’m exhausted. Wait … didn’t somebody say something about a garage sale?! Hmmm….

Modern Women

I’ve just updated Companions-Humanoid with the following women, dressed more appropriate to the modern era:


Thank to commenter Wild Card for pointing out the lack. Enjoy!

HM3: Kirby Energy Blasts (Reward for CDC #54 Winner RobM)


These Kirby energy blasts were requested by Character Design Contest #54 (Flying) winner RobM. So if you have any problems/satisfaction with these items he’s the man to blame/thank!

They can be found in ItemRightEnergy.

Legends of Steel companions

I’ve just updated Companions-Humanoid with the following fine folk:


The first two gentlemen are from an illustration I did a few years ago of costumed crusaders in their fancy civvies. The remaining four were drawn for the “Legends of Steel” RPG created by Friend of HeroMachine Jeff “Evil DM” Mejia, who has graciously allowed them to be used here. You can order the game in its several varieties here.

Thanks to the Evil DM and I hope you enjoy the new additions to the bullpen.

Whiz Bang Item Creation Poll #4 (SciFi Leg Armor)

It’s scifi leg armor time? We have War Machine, Guyver, and Mass Effect leg armor. I will be making the complete leg (so boot, knee, and thigh piece where applicable). Don’t leave me without a leg to stand on. Vote and it shall be made!

Now’s your chance to decide what artwork I will work on next. Whatever wins the vote will be completed the following week. This doesn’t mean I won’t work on other pieces. The winning piece will just be guaranteed my attention.

This poll will end on Thursday, January 23rd.

Ground Eruption to Major Tom

I’ve just added the following “Stuff’s coming up out of the ground FAST” item to Background-Floors:


Faerie Avery Companion

By request, I’ve made this lovely creature available in Companions-Humanoid:


Big Mean Worm Monster

Per request, I’ve just added the big rock worm monster to Companion-Standard:


HM3: Tech Leg and Lightning Masks



This old leg? Yeah. I had it lying around. You can find it in LegwearMaleStandard.

A few lightning-inspired masks for speedy, electrical, or pointy characters. The 4th mask was actually inspired by an HM3 creation by Deadman (Speed Demon). You can find these in HeadgearMasks.

City Block

I just added the following city block to HeroMachine 3 in Background-Cityscapes:
