HM3: Body thoughts

I’m working on new alternate body types starting today, and am sort of feeling my way along here.

These will be completely integrated bodies that are greater or lesser departures… [ Read more … ]

HM3: That crazy hand-jive

I’ve just uploaded 27 new items for the HandRight-Standard set in the HeroMachine 3 Alpha incorporating many of your suggestions.

HM3: Plan 9

I’ve just published the Heads-Aliens set of items for the HeroMachine 3 alpha. It includes many of the items you suggested in that last thread, so thank you!

HM3: Female update, update

At the urging of a couple of comments in the previous post, here’s an updated version of the propose shoulders-square female figure. The new one’s on the left, with “more finishing details” like toenails, better hands, etc. and slimmer hips, along with arms more akimbo: Let me know your thoughts on these, which you prefer,… [ Read more … ]

HM3: Female figure redux

I’d like to get your feedback on two possible female templates. The image below has the two generic ones (with faces for reference) in the middle, then two sample characters with outfits on so you can see how they might look dressed. The major change has been in the pose. We discovered that trying to… [ Read more … ]

HM3: Potential code changes
