Caption contest and results delayed

due to my stupidity and the fact i lost track of what day of the week it was. As well as my working on cleaning malware from my sisters computer i will be delaying my normal posts for today until tomorrow.


JRoundup- Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

In lieu of a Big Question this week, and because I’m a massive Pokemon fanboy, I’m going to be taking a look at the soon to be released 3rd Gen Pokemon remakes. I apologise to all of you who aren’t Pokemon fans, normal service will be resumed next week (because I won’t have got the games by then so I can’t do a review of them, thank you Gamefreak and your stupid police of giving Europe the games a week after everyone else).

Anyway, on with the show.

New Post Idea

Now that we don’t have anything on the Tuesday slot here on the blog, I was thinking “what would be a good idea to fill that slot?” I’d kinda like for it not be a rehash of something I’ve done before. Then an idea struck me, but I wanted to run it by you guys before I went a head with it.

The idea is kind of hard to explain, so I try to word it best I can. What I was thinking of doing is basically screen capturing myself making a character on Heromachine, narrating the process and then posting the video as that weeks post. Obviously it wouldn’t just be me creating a whole character in one video, that video would be like 2 hours long and no-one has time for that, but instead it would be broken up into segments of around 20- 30 minutes (hopefully), say video 1 would be the base and posing, video 2 would be costume, video 3 would be hair/ face, video 4 would be background (if there is one) and video 5 would be shading and other finishing touches. That way it would take us all the way up to Christmas and then we can go from there. Also, it gives you guys a chance to have some control over the content, because you can make suggestions for things I can do with the character for the next weeks video (basically like a community character build only with one person doing the actual building). It might also help some of the newcomers with some of the more advanced aspects of Heromachine 3, such as shading and posing.

And the good thing about having this as a Tuesday slot, is that I’m not working on Tuesdays so I’ll be able to record the video same day and, because I’m in the UK, if I record in the morning it should be up at the regular time for all you guys across the pond.

So what do you guys think. If you like the idea, we can start next week (so you can make suggestions in the comments if you so wish, just remember, when it comes to posing, I’m no DeliriousAl). If not, then I’ll try to come up with something else.

JR out.

Character Design Contest ♯99- Twice (and a bit) as Good?

So, following on from last weeks HM1 contest, this week your challenge is to create the best character you possibly can using Heromachine 2.5. As with last week, you can enter hero, villain, male, female etc. just so long as you used HM2.5.

Have fun. Oh and also, by entering this contest you are giving permission for the character/ characters you enter to be used in next weeks contest, ok?

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings.
