Quick update on me !

Kaldath here,  I figure I just let you all know I'm still in the hospital there's a hold up due to special equipment I need before I can be discharged that my insurance doesn't cover I am hopeful however that I will be discharged within the next couple days and then I have about five weeks of rehab  and wound care on the surgically wounds of my foot.

Pop Quiz – Beetle Mania!


On June 18th, 1942, musician Paul McCartney was born.

Your Pop Quiz challenge is to use this information to create a “Beetle” with “Wings”. See what I did there?

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image(like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, June 19th.




Server trouble

Hey folks, just wanted to give you a heads-up that the server's been crashing the last couple of nights. I'm trying to keep an eye on it while we figure out the root cause, but if you can't get to it please drop me a line and let me know.

My apologies for any frustration!

Friday Night Fights: Semi-Finals

Ok guys, the semi-finals are no upon us. And the completion has already thrown up an interesting result. Previous FNF winner djuby fell in the 2nd round, which has certainly made the semi-finals look a lot different to what I'm sure anyone was expecting. For those competitors that went out in the last round, feel free to post your entries up now if you so wish. For our remaining competitors, good luck, next week two of you will be in the final.

FNF Elimination Bracket

Semi Final 1: Vectorman316 vs. Linea24

Semi Final 2: Vampyrist vs. MLS

You can find full size images of the entries for this round below the jump.

JR out. (Literally)

The List: Top 5 Do’s and Don’ts for the next Star Wars Films

Last week we covered potential characters that could appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For this weeks list, I'm sure many of you were expecting a DC equivalent, but no. Not yet. This week I'm going to do a different kind of "fantasy booking" as it were. What Disney should and should not do with Star Wars episodes 8 and 9.

Character Design Challenge #174- Weaponry

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge I want you to create the most inventive and interesting weapon you can. It can be any kind of weapon, sword, gun, bow etc. but it must be hand-wieldable, so no War-Machine style suits, weaponised robots or vehicles such as tanks. Only weapons please.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). 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. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Pop Quiz…well not really.


As most of you know, Kaldath has been going through some health issues of late. Because he contributes soooooo much to this site, I thought it might be good if we let him know how much we appreciate and care about him.

So instead of a pop quiz this week, let's use Heromachine to let him know we are thinking about him.

So your "non-pop quiz" challenge this week is to create a get well card for Kaldath. On Monday at noon I will email the link to both Kaldath and his sister. Lets show some love and send some positive vibes his way.



Friday Night Fights: Quarter Finals

Ok guys, the qualifying round is over. Unfortunately that means we have to say good bye to one of our competitors. I am a bit surprised that it was Lef who went out in the first round, and you guys are really missing out on some of his pics from the later rounds, but you voted him out. Lef, you can now post all of your entries online if you so wish, show everyone what they're missing.

But anyway, now that the qualifying round is out of the way, we can get down to business. Now, each of our competitors are randomly paired up and go head to head. Each match is decided by poll, with the person who gets the highest votes in each pair moving on to the next round, until we have a winner. And the brackets are thus:

You can find the polls for each match below the jump, along with each of this rounds entries. Good luck to all of our competitors, with the exception of MLS (joke obviously).

JR out.
