This weeks winner will be a surprise to no-one, especially considering people were already calling the result by mid-week. And it is a pretty comprehensive victory when you can get over 10 more votes than the rest of the competition combined. So congratulations to Carmen whose piece The Strange Case of Hannah Jekyll & Edith Hyde was the instigator of this weeks steamroller (please make sure you speak to dblade about your prize), and well done to everyone else who entered.
I’m kinda bending my own rules here this week, because I said that I wouldn’t be featuring any entries for the Character Design Contests. However, considering that this one was entered for a contest during the Forum down time and Stulte has only just got round to posting it, plus it’s only one of six parts that made up his entry, I think I can get away with it. Anyway.
Ok so, I can’t really talk about much here, because this is so simple, but it looks so good. This is a perfect example of what you can do with just two items and some colour blending, because all it is is some wings and a tail. I love the warm vibrancy that the golds and oranges bring to the piece and the fact that the line colour is lighter than any of the filler colours exaggerates that, making them look deeper and even more inviting. And the fact that the centre is covers by a glow masking where all the items meet adds a sheen to it, makes it look neat and professional, as if all the parts where made to make up the whole rather than the whole made to fit the parts. So yeah, good job on this one dude.
Whiz Bang Boom! You can find these shinies in the Insignia/Shapes set.
Ok guys, time for another Community Submission, this time featuring Herr D. If you have anything that you would like to submit for this feature the submissions are now open again for this week, until next Wednesday, and you can find the rules, guidelines and other info on how to submit here: Link
Now without further ado, I’ll hand y’all over to the very capable tentacles of Mr Herr D.

and the winner is ………………………………..
Ok, time to be sexist and say “sorry guys, you aren’t allowed in this contest.” Because what I want you guys to do this week is come up with the best female character you can. Sounds simple right? Well, to make it a bit more interesting, you only get one shot at it. That’s right, only one entry per person. I don’t know how Cliff is going to cope. It doesn’t matter what genre you do or if the character is a hero, villain or an ordinary person, just so long as they’re female. And obviously, keep it within the rules please, nothing too lewd or costumes that are too revealing please.
The contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time) as per usual. 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.
