Caption Contest #126

Ok guys, it's time for another caption contest. This week I want you to come up with the best replacement caption for this panel:

Everyone can have a maximum of 3 entries, entries must be in by next Wednesday (Sep 12th) and All Entries Must Be PG-13

CDC #378 – Check Mate! – Results

So there were only two entrants this week, which is beyond disappointing. On the plus side, however, THEY BOTH ROCKED! So the co-winners this week are...

Herr D's white pawn whittler...

and Soldering Gunslinger's Vampire Spawn pawn

Both will receive a version of their character rendered in HM3 by yours truly. Your prizes will be posted to the blog later this week

CDC #379 – Hero Yourself!

Your challenge this week is to visit the link below to the Superhero Name Generator, and to create a hero version of yourself based on the name and list of powers it generates.

Please include a screen cap of your results with your entry.

The winner this week will receive a HeroMachine rendering of my version of their winning design.

The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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.

  • 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.

This contest will close at 9:00 am Eastern on Sunday, September 9th.

CDC #378 – Check Mate!

A few years ago, a contest series ran on the HM Forums where the goal was to design a chess set – piece by piece – so I thought I would give it a try as a CDC. (Above are my entries for the black and white pawn in the original contest.)

So your challenge this week is to create designs for both the black and white pawns. Entries may be submitted as 1 rendering or 2 – it is up to you.

The winner this week will receive a HeroMachine rendering of my version of one of their winning designs.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

You may enter up to three times.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games.
