Just a quick update,

I'm still around, just finished updating MartianBlue and Blue Jay to the new bodies with a bit of tinkering and character sheet. Still lots of information missing at the moment, but I'm in no hurry to try and force it, what I do intend to do though is give some story information on the characters as I go so I'll be updating that. I'm going to try and update them in order so Triton will be last, though I may add new ones if inspiration strikes, back on point any suggestions on Triton? I like him for the most part, but he doesn't seem to be there yet.

Non-Canonical
On the old forums I used to do tribute pieces, which is where I took the name of a fellow machiner and created a piece based on it. Since looking over FRM's page and seeing his tributes I've had a strong urge to reimagine some of my old ones. The first of hopefully many more (spaced out overtime)

Thor

Deity
http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Universe%20Genesis/S%20-%20Mythic/Thor.png

-rough bio-
Thor's hammer, Mjolnir has a leather strap tied to it so that when shrunk down it can be worn as a necklace, alternatively it can be dropped into the ring on his belt. Instead of steel gloves, a metal rune on either hand with the unity symbol calls his hammer back to hand. His belt, Megingjord, has a rune inscribed with strength, granting him the strength of a giant, allowing him to wield his hammer. The material the hammer is forged from makes it a great conduit granting Thor the ability to control lightning. Thor's helmet bears an eagle as it's crown and one of his goats serves as his cloak.

-related characters-
Donar

-creator notes-
I tried to implement the important things into his outfit and give it a more realistic feel, other than the helmet. Ideally the tone of the character is implement with both science and magic, where it appears as magic to others, but the secret to its' science is known to his people and the forgers of his weapons.

No problem friend. Glad you like it. I need to get to Hammerknight & Isia's I know basically what I want to do with it, just slow about starting.

I really don't like the hammer my Thor has at the moment, so I redesigned it.
I give you the true Mjolnir

http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Universe%20Genesis/CC%20-%20Items/Mjolnir.png

It'll probably be awhile before I do any updating on him, need to make a new (yet old, just an update really) Hero Body so no reason to really work the hammer in yet.

Thanks, I was more focused on the design aspect so It's not really in a good position for use with someone at the moment, reason I didn't include it and the text in custom items. I wish there was a way to group and rotate stuff in program. Though it won't be hard to remake, just the symbol was a pain.

Edit* Overtime I'm going to add at least two other versions of Thor; Thunor and Donar.
Thunor is going to be an old design on UGO that I like the basis of reworked and Donar will be the red headed one also on UGO, either willl be from an alternate reality, so that also means 3 versions of Mjolnir.

The hammer looks very cool. Everything is perfect on that. It looks like an original hammer. Great picture.

Thanks Harlequin, I tried to base it off the original or at least what I found to be refrenced as the original.

Thanks Legatus, I like him, I kinda feel he could mix with medieval or superheroes as he looks now. Maybe one of these days I'll get to move on to Odin, rework Ymir, and design a few others.

Here's a list of characters I'm considering entering into Jeff's 100th Character Contest
I'm just not sure which one to settle on yet.

Photobucket's acting weird at the moment, keeps making picture smaller and I can't change the upload option to a larger size cause the buttons acting like it doesn't work. So for now here is a small preview, I'll try it again later.

Testament

Cursed
http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Universe%20Genesis/S%20-%20Destine/Testament.png

-rough bio-
Testament is an oracle, he has the ability to not only see the future, but to also project an individual's upon them through direct contact, forcing them to see all their deeds and what punishments might lie ahead, often overwhelming and causing a mental break.

As a Swede, who is a huge nerd when it comes to Norse mythology, I absolutely love your rendition of Tor, and the level of research you put into him. Great work, great design Smile

Ah, reasons. We all have them, at times.

I have seen many Thor Hammers out there. I like a lot of them, but I'm not into the hammer/axe one that I have seen in some of the comics. By my old trade, I used many types of hammers, so I have a soft spot for hammers and axes.

Attention to details. The little things can add up and can be the difference between a good design and a bad one.

I tried to infuse it with a bit of myth.

Found myself a little side tracked lately, but I've still got a few things in the works here, 3 members of The Order of the Hammer, based off the crusades, and a second costume to add to my Captain Marvel, and a new hero, well actually two and a couple stories I need to try and work up.

The Grey Lord

Human
http://i1059.photobucket.com/albums/t440/GuyGenesis/Universe%20Genesis/S%20-%20Mythic/TheGreyLord.png

-rough bio-
a lord known for executing his wives in turn after they fail to give him a child. The fault lies not with the women, but himself, though he can have children it is extremely difficult. which brings us to our story. He tries and when his wife is void of child he decides to have her executed, a captain of the guard whom has fallen in love with her helps her to escape, and is put to death for his effort. Years later the lord has had many wives during this time, but his current, is already promised to a youth. The boy comes to retrieve his fiancé and is slain by the lord in combat, only for the lord to learn he is, well was his only heir. The lord abandons his home and heads for the crusades to find forgiveness and peace.

-creator notes-
Has a rough story that ties into the story of The Order of The Hammer. I'll have five members in total once finished.

Been awhile, since I've been on here. Hope all are well. I still owe Hammerknight and Isia a tribute piece, I'm so slow about getting to these things. Been thinking for the last couple days of adding my old creations straight from the old UGO forums instead of trying to remake them first, that really worked out the first time. Been tinkering with 3D a bit, so far I've created an elbow pad, 3/4ths of a belt, and in the process of a three piece chest strap, and before those my sword from above, needs reworked still. My current plans are to use heromachine to conceptualize my characters, and eventually render them in full 3D, that would be cool, and very useful.

Old UGO character, completely new look
Guardian

Was thinking his power was simply flight, either being swept from past to present or (him)having a famous medieval ancestor inspired his costume choice(s)
Which design do you prefer? Suggestions?

Awesome work. Welcome back.

Cool characters! I love how you sort of give a modern feel to golden age comic-type characters!

So let it be written, so let it be done...
