Many of you fine folks already know this rule, but I felt it important to Stress it again for those who do not, or those brand new to the forums. It is strictly forbidden for you too post pictures created with the use of any version of Heromachine to these forums of any and all copyright characters. If you create a Heromachine picture of a character from a comic book, game, movie, or other existing work (i.e., Wolverine, Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, etc.) it has the potential of causing legal issues for Jeff, whom has already had threats of lawsuits in the past over Heromachine.
Weather you believe Jeff would win such a lawsuit is not at issue here. Win, loss or draw having to defend himself in court would be expensive and time consuming and is a process Jeff would just assume avoid altogether so please pay strict attention to this rule and help make sure Heromachine is here for all of us to enjoy for a very long time.

Just to expand on the above. This rules also applies to pictures made with programs similar to Heromachine such as Hero-O-Matic, as well as hand drawn artwork of your own creation.
Here are some words by Jeff on the matter taken from a Blog post on the Main Heromachine.com page:
Because this is (or at least, was) a business, I am in a much more tenuous legal position than you are as individuals. And yet, here’s a case where a guy did some cool Wolverine sketches and had to hire a lawyer to keep Marvel from retroactively taking them for their own.
Make versions of copyrighted characters at your own risk, folks. But if you do, you can’t post them here.
