Open Nomination: HMHOF!

Well Jr's Hero Of The Year Post today reminded me that it is also time for our annual HeroMachine Hall Of Fame nominations! So here is what I want you to do. In the comments below I would like you to nominate a pieces of Heromachine, and HEROMACHINE ONLY artwork from any creator anywhere on the internet so long as 1) The individual has not been banned from this site, 2) The Heromachine artist knows about the nomination and does not object to his/her artwork being used here. & 3) as noted above the artwork is created 100% inside heromachine with no editing other then basic cropping.

I would prefer you nominate other peoples artwork but you are not forbidden from nominating yourself if you are so inclined. Also there are no limitation on the number of nomination you can make but I do ask you try and keep them to a minimum so I don't need to create a 100 entry poll!

A Bit of Fun: 9 Great Cover Songs

I wanted to do something different, so today I wanna talk about cover songs. Cover songs come in all shapes and flavors, often crossing, blurring, and outright stepping over lines of genre and style. Like any other type of song, they also run the gamut from excellent to atrocious. We’re going to do the former this time around, and save the latter for another time. I’ve actually been really lucky to hear so many good covers, but I want to talk here about the best of the best, the ones that really stand out. To make this list, they had to be at least on par or better than the originals. I’m also limiting to one per band, as some artists do enough covers that they could make a list to themselves. So without further ado, let’s get to it!

scandal-10th

On this edition of Kaldath's Corner I am  going to write about something I have been longing to review since August but various things not the least of which being my illness had kept me from doing. Today I review that "10th Anniversary Festival" concert by my most favorite band on the planet, the J-Rock group SCANDAL.

Character Design Challenge #194 – The International Legion for Justice: Phase 2.

177448c28117204e3eb9695d353b3f74

Your challenge this week is to design the second member of the ILJ: Britannia

Britannia aka Sarah Hirst, is from Manchester, England and teamed up with Major Patriot in late 1941, following the attack on Pearl Harbour. While she has no superpowers to speak of, she is an expert markswoman and tracker.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

 

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, 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;
  • 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 on Sunday, November 13th at 9:00am Eastern.

KHU: Back to Work!

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.
