Ok, this is my 1st try. Comments please.
Weilyn, and Harlequin, thanks for your help.October 10, 2012 at 1:21 am #12027
I know this is way too big, but I can’t seem to get it smaller. I’ve tried to reduce it, but then when the file is saved to my folder, the thumbnail of the pic doesn’t come up, as it did with this size of the pic.
Strangely enough, when I open the pic in windows image gallery, it doesn’t look near as big as it does here.
Any suggestions?October 10, 2012 at 2:27 am #12028
I’m pretty sure Windows Image Gallery resizes images when you watch them with it, so that you can watch the entire picture without having to scroll, which I guess helps if you’ve got a whole bunch of high resolution vacation photos that you want to torture your family with. I use CDisplay, MS Paint or Internet Explorer to view my images when I want them to be properly sized.
Sorry, can’t give you any more advice than that. I’m kind of new to this as well.
I really like the design. There’s this kind of retro-50’s-sci-fi-style over it that I always love. And if that is your first stab at a face it is WAY better than my first attempt.
Nice job! Looking forward to see more!
Also, sorry if my English is kind of crap in this post. It tends to be that when I’m tiredOctober 10, 2012 at 3:57 am #12030
Anyway try exporting it from the Heromachine in a smaller format, I usually go with 500×750.
Could use a little explanation of what this character is, that would help us to formulate an opinion. And to that point a few questions:
What’s he standing on?
Why is the earth brown?
Did all the trees die?
Did the giant bird kill the trees?October 10, 2012 at 4:47 am #12032
Weilyn, thanks! (I think the face I made is ok. I believe I’d much rather use helmets lol.)
Bad-People, thanks for the reply as well. I’ll try 500. I just wanted to test posting a char first, make sure it worked. My next ones will have backstory.
He’s standing on some sort of walkway that was in the backgrounds. The Earth is brown, as I don’t know yet how to mix colors and shade, etc. I’ve only been using HM for 5 days, so I’m pretty much new at this.
Since I can’t draw a straight line, I really like this program quite a lot.
Again, thanks for the comments!October 10, 2012 at 5:47 am #12033
The 1st char I did was one of two I did as an out-of-uniform type. I made this as sort of a cross between MMPR, Sentai Jetman, and the G-Force/BoTP/Gatchaman characters. I’m still trying to look for info on poses, making new ones, things like that. Anyone know if there is a thread to request a pose?
Anyway, hope you like. Comments welcome.October 10, 2012 at 12:10 pm #12045
Have a look at http://www.heromachine.com/forum/poses/ to see if there’s anything you can use. If there isn’t, start a new topic in that forum called “Pose Requests” or something, and ask for what you want.October 10, 2012 at 4:28 pm #12052
Much better, you’re progressing fast. (Don’t know about the Batman & Robin nipple suit though)October 11, 2012 at 9:06 am #12078

Yeah, have a look at the thread Kailin suggested. If you can’t find something to your liking, then open a new thread and ask for it. reference pictures are a plus.October 11, 2012 at 7:31 pm #12114

Yeah, I was and still am new to this, and I had gotten the insignia on the chest before I knew that I could place it on clothes etc., with layering.
I’ve always liked the idea of characters with powered armor/suits as opposed to traditional ‘capes’ style characters. (Plus, I’m not that great with the the faces and skin tone quite yet.)October 14, 2012 at 11:07 pm #12269
Well you could have still put a shirt on him then moved it through the layers until you had it where you wanted it.October 15, 2012 at 3:29 am #12282
Ok, here’s another..I’m having problems getting things to post. I upload at 500×750 for the above pic, it works and this one didn’t. I’m doing something wrong, can someone (besides me) understand where I’m screwing things up? Anyway, hope you like. Comments please.October 15, 2012 at 3:32 am #12283
I’m figuring that layering tool out. I’m going to leave the lens flare, etc. lighting until I get the other stuff down.
Does anyone else besides me have a problem with masking things sometimes? I know to mask an item in the hand, and so on. It just seems to take 2 or 3 tries to do it.October 15, 2012 at 5:20 am #12289
I don’t have problems with the masking tool. Ecxept for some hands it simply doesn’t work, but those are a few exceptions.
Looking at your Ancient Superhuman, I’d say you gotta work on the layering a bit more.
