Thanks HermanSmellville and Yin! I don’t have a fully fleshed out story for Nkechinyere yet. I originally started using Heromachine because I was creating a game using RPGMaker and I wanted some portraits of the characters, but that project is on hold now because of a computer crash. The concept for the game is the somewhat typical RPG story of “someone from a small village becomes a hero and saves the world”, but it’s based on cultural elements and mythology from various African cultures rather than the more common medieval Europe-like setting for that kind of game.
Anyways, here’s what I have so far for her story: the world is in danger because Aido Hwedo, the Rainbow Serpent (http://www.blackdrago.com/fame/aidohwedo.htm), is running out of food – when he has no more food, he eats his own tail and then the world will fall into the ocean. Nkechinyere’s village serves as guardians of the entrance to the tunnel to reach Aido Hwedo and bring him more food. So Nkechinyere, her twin brother Lesedi, and their other companions set out to acquire the magical objects that they need to make the talismans that will allow them to reach Aido Hwedo under the earth and the oceans.June 5, 2015 at 10:12 pm #125129

I have a few different things to post today:
1. “Dancing in the Moonlight”
Just for fun. Not totally satisfied with the arms up above their heads – they look too long and stretched out to me. But that was as good as I could get it.
2. “Lightning Bug”
I started this one a while ago to play around with some fun items and practice shading. I think I’m pretty happy with where it’s at now, so here it is.
3. “Goth Prom”
An entry for this week’s OPMC contest.
4. Lesedi Dambe Fight pose
My entry for CDC #127. This is Lesedi, the twin brother of Nkechinyere – I posted about her a few weeks ago (I like this skin tone better than the one I had used in her picture). Anyways, this is a pose with him in a dambe fight (dambe is a West African form of boxing).June 28, 2015 at 2:24 am #125941
