Just wanted to wish the entire HeroMachine Community a very Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas to all the Hero Machiners out there. Happiness and joy to you and your families.
Due to a busier than normal production schedule, the semester coming to an end, and the holidays fast approaching, I find myself unable to resume the Costume Blog and Pop Quiz at this time. My hope is that they will return early in the new year.
From one veteran to all others, that you for your service. Our true heroes are the ones that are welling to give all for our freedom. You serve for what you believe in, and should be proud of it. This also goes out to the Military Members, Fire and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Correctional Officers, and Paramedics. To everyone that is welling to protect and serve. I thank you and I am proud to call you brother/sister. God bless.
Five great entries this week, and as always the decision is never as easy as it initially seems. Have gone back and forth on this one a few times, but I’ve got to give it to The Atomic Punk this week, although Calvary Red was a VERY close second. Good job everyone. Congratulations!
On a personal note, the next month is going to be very busy professionally as I am working on four shows simultaneously. As such I will not have time to post the Costume Blog for the next little while. I should be back up an running the first week in December to return to the blog and post the Pop Quiz on December 6th.
Your Pop Quiz Challenge for November is to create a sprite, fairy, nymph or any other creature for that matter, which resides in, and embodies the spirit of, the autumn forest.
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 forums,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 files as [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). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.
This contest will close at 9pm Eastern on Sunday, November 3rd.
Due to me not feeling well, and being in a bit of pain ( Last weekend of work was busy, and I twisted my ankle ) I haven’t been able to focus on my posts for today so I will be writing them later and posting them tomorrow ( Wednesday) instead of today.
Today we bring you a guest post from Eunisse C. De Leon, a writer who’s interested in Asian culture and anything art and design-related. I hope you’ll give her a warm HeroMachine welcome!
A typical superhero wears form-fitting clothes, a cape, and a mask to complete their image but characters are now tweaking their signature look. While most superheroes hide their identities under a mask, there are those who prefer to give a hint while still leaving an air of mystery.
This list welcomes the 10 protagonists from comic books, animated films and series, and the gaming world who opted to wear cool sunglasses instead of the usual mask that makes them look like burglars instead of someone who saved the day.
