Power User Profile: Scorpidius

Scorpidius was one of the most active early adopters of HeroMachine, creating a massive and beautiful series of trading cards. While not as active on the blog and forums as some other folks, he nonetheless continues to expand his early vision into a truly impressive product. And Scorp, I swear my “Secret Nerd Shame” call-out of Stephen King was not in reply to your book answer! Maybe the fact that I have the super-power you wished for (in spades!) will let you forgive me …

Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present Scorpidius!

Power User Profile: Vampyrist

Vampyrist is one of the first HM creators who I thought had a distinctive “style”; before that, I hadn’t realized that the same set of drawings could be manipulated in such a way to even have a style. But I can always tell a Vampyrist illustration immediately, which I think is very cool. So without further ado, here’s more about the unique eye behind the Vampyrist!

Power User Profile: Lime

I see so many various HeroMachine images, that they sort of blur together over time. It’s very unusual for one to stick with me so strongly that even months later, I go actively looking for it. Our Power User this week is Lime, who has exactly such an image and story. Here it is copied from her UGO Forums Archive; I include it at the beginning because I wanted you to see why I chose her to profile. Anyone who can do this is someone I want to know more about:

One day after school, a griffin followed me home. I asked my mom if I could keep it. She said no. I don’t know why. I promised I’d feed it.

Also, considering the passing of Peter Falk two days ago, I think her final line is very appropriate. So without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to introduce Lime!
