Real Life Inspirations For Comic Book Villains


Found this article online – pretty interesting. So weird that Harley Quinn was inspired by a dream sequence on “Days of Our Lives.”

Character Of The Week: The Forsaken by Valyndril

So, two days ago, this new guy starts a thread on the forums, begins filling it up with work that literally causes peoples minds to be blown. I mean, some of the effects he’s doing with heromachine I’ve only ever seen done in photoshop and the like. Then, today he posts this;

Do I really need to give any further explanation as to why I’m doing a Character Of The Week post for this? Just go and check out the rest of his work here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/valyndrils-heroes/#p42381. He hasn’t uploaded much yet, but what he has uploaded is spectacular.

HM3: Exporting broken. Again.

UPDATE: I just installed a fix that’s working in Chrome, but I don’t have IE. Can someone who does please go to the HM3 app, hold down CTRL-F5 to force it to refresh with the latest version of the app, and try exporting again, please? Thank you!

UPDATE 2: I have confirmation from djuby (who originally reported the problem) that IE is fixed now as well. Woot!

I’ve gotten a couple of reports that Internet Explorer is no longer allowing you to export images from HM3 as of last night. Reports are from both IE9 and IE11. In testing, Chrome worked this morning with Chrome Version 34.0.1847.131 but a few moments later after I “upgraded” to Chrome Version 34.0.1847.137 it was broken.

So something major changed for it to affect two different browsers from both Google and Microsoft. I don’t know what, I haven’t changed anything in the code base.

Once again you’ll have to do screen captures till I figure out what they broke THIS time. It’s very frustrating, I apologize.

Character Design Contest ♯73- Post Apocalyptic

This week I’m going to give you a bit more freedom. You can design a character, scene, background, weapon or device, just so long as it has a post apocalyptic feeling/ setting. I’m sure you don’t need me to give you examples of post apocalyptic settings, but think ruined cities, dust-bowls, desert gangs, stuff like that.

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.
