Power User Profiles: Son4

This weeks profilee has a fantastically unique style that is unlike anything else I’ve seen in Heromachine. His creations have a very cool cyber-punk style, mixed with a cartoonish edge that makes them stand out from everyone else. And luckily for everyone else, he does take requests (which I have taken advantage of in the past). Plus he’s a cool dude anyway, which is always a plus. So, ladies and gentlemen, please give a big hand to Son4.

Anime Talk: Intros

Anime talk logo

Greeting all your anime fans out there in the HeroMachine community! It has been a while since I last posted an anime talk and I intend to change that starting today, However there is a bit of a change in format. Instead of being a weekly feature Anime talk is more likely to be a monthly feature instead at best! There will be time I will post more then one a month and there may be time it will be more like 5 or 6 weeks instead of every 4 it all depend on when inspiration strikes! This weeks topic is inspired by a suggest that JR emailed me last week.

What we are going to discuss here are Anime Intros. Those opening scenes that are designed to grab our attention and draw us in and make us want to watch that particular anime! What I am going to do is after the jump share some of my favorite Anime intros, and share what I like about them and then you can either comment on the ones I have shared or share some of your own ( or both of course) .

SO Lets begin!!

Character Design Contest ♯95- Smells Like Team Spirit

Ok guys, what I want you to do for this weeks contest is create a team of some sort. It can be any kind of team you want, superhero team, sports team, army corp, music band etc. but I must insist that it consists of 2 or more recognisably individual members and that they be identifiable as a team by means of either a shared logo/ motif or by a shared colour scheme. Also, all the members must be submitted in one image, they cannot be submitted individually or you will be disqualified. To make this a bit easier, I will allow the user of programs other than heromachine for you to put the team together in one image, and only to put the team together in one image, any other external editing is not allowed.

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 pictures and images 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.

Character Design Contest ♯94 (Going Japanese) Poll

Ok, I feel some people may not be happy with some of the choices I’ve made for this weeks poll, or rather some of my choices of entries to leave out. So after the jump I’ll explain why I chose these five out of all the entries.

Character Design Contest ♯93 (Here Come The Girls)- Winner

I’m sure some members of the community will be glad to hear that our first “all female” contest wasn’t won by the picture with the least clothes or the most “circular emblems and the adolescent vote” showing, but in fact was won by our most dressed entrant with the most blood showing. This weeks winner, claiming his third win I believe, is Stulte for his Maria I Briganza. Congratulations Stulte, please make sure you speak to dblade about your prize, and well done to everyone else who entered, there were so many excellent entries.
