Wow, what a last couple of days we’ve had for upcoming movies! I’ve got FOUR new trailers to talk about, one of which has two versions! So let’s dive right in!
This will be my last Kaldath Health Update post! I have offically returned to work! Yep I have suited up in my niffty Security Officer uniform and just finished my first shift since June 5th. I am a bit disappointed I was unable to return to the job site I had before getting sick which was less then a mile from my home, but dispite the increased distance this new site doesn't seem so bad.
Hey guys, JR here again. Since last weeks Artist's Foibles got a good response, I thought you might enjoy another one. If you like this one, I'm sure there's a way we can arrange for some more to happen.
Anyway, I think I'll hand you over once again to Herr D's very capable tentacles.
Hey guys, JR here. Sorry, no Top 10 List today. I've been very busy and haven't had a chance to put one together yet. There may be one later on in the week, but I'm not promising anything. To make up for this, we're going to try something new (I say that a lot) and have a guest post by long-time community member Herr D. Let us know in the comments if you want stuff like this to continue and I'll endeavour to bring more of these posts as regularly as possible. But now I'll leave you in the capable tentacles of Herr D.
Well folks we have a good new bad news situation here, though mostly good news. I have been discharged from Hyperbaric treatments early because my foot has already healed up, and if it is still considered "healed" next week at my wound care appointment I will be discharged from wound care also. The Bad new is that my regular doctor thinks I have a bulging disc in my back and will be sending me to physical therapy to treat it. My back is causing me a great deal of pain, resulting from a fall I took right after being discharged from the hospital. In any event things are certainly looking up for me healthwise even if pain is still an issue at this point.
Your Pop Quiz challenge this week is to design an alien landscape.
You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
- No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
- Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).
This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, October 2nd.
Hey folks, nothing major, but I just wanted you to know that Ye Olde Jeffe is still alive and kicking. The mods are doing a great job and I'm so happy you all are creating and having fun, but if there's anything you'd like to see us do more or less of please let me know.
I am also working on a Sooper Sekrit project that will hopefully pave the way for a HeroMachine 4 that is HTML-based instead of relying on Flash. Which is good, because Flash is, sadly, going to be pretty much non-existent at some point in the near future.
Anyway, thanks for being such a great community and keep on creating!
Well I gotta say ... I thought this topic would be much more popular than it turned out to be. Not sure if folks found it intimidating or just a bad idea. Anyway, three brave souls undertook the challenge brilliantly, but one really nailed it.
This week's winner is HerrD. Well done you!
This week's win goes to Atomic Punk. Love the pseudo-vintage vibe of the character, and the details in the face and uniform are very effective. Well done you!
Honourable mentions: Cliff for London Fog and JR19759 for Grawp.
And this week's winner is hawk007's Burning Veins. Really beautiful use of colour and contrast. Well done you!
