Last week I asked you all to give me you funniest dialogue for this image:
After reviewing the entries these are my top five from those submitted:
UPDATE: Piece finished! Just need to do Color2. I updated the picture below.
Old: Here’s an update on the leg. One more piece to go. I hope people don’t mind me sharing the progress. Missing the forums at the moment. SAD FACE.
Another throw back contest for y’all this week. Much like witht eh Western Zodiac contest we did a few weeks ago, Jeff ran a couple of contests based around the seven deadly sins (which btw one of which was my first ever contest entry ) so I think it’ll be interesting to see how people take on this one and how people have improved if they were around to have entered first time around. In case anyone doesn’t know what the Seven Deadly Sins consist of, they are Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Now, the idea here is to represent one or more of these sins through a character or a scene. You can do more than one in one picture, but ti has to be obvious which sin you are trying to represent. Also, a word of warning, I know lust is on that list, that does not give free pass to be explicit. PG-13 please.
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. 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.
Ah, the lesser spotted COTW post, some what of an endangered species, mostly due to the fact I want it to be special when I do post it, so it’s not weekly anymore. But anyway, just because the forums are down doesn’t mean we’re not getting awesome artwork to feature. For example, Anarchangel posted this to his deviantart page earlier.
Ok it hasn’t got as much of a “Wow!” factor as the last few COTW’s but I felt this deserved to be featured because its very inventive. You don’t see many mud/ slime creatures in Heromachine form, mostly because they’re very difficult to do, but AA managed to pull it off in a very impressive way, just by using the elasticated arm as a base and working from that. And I think we can agree that the final product works very well.
One final thing, would you guys like me to make this post weekly again once the forums are back up and running (whenever that may be). I have said why I’d like to keep it a occasional post, but if you guys want it weekly again I will oblige. There’s plenty of great heromachine work out there deserving to be featured for me to make it weekly again.
This weeks poll ended nice and close, only two votes between our top two, who had been trading places all week. But I guess homaging certain iconic images does pay off, because this weeks winner is BabyVroomVroom for their character Gust. Congrats BVV and well done to everyone else who entered.
New episode, new review time. Not much to say about this one.
