HM3: Boots, Belts, and Badashery

Moar as promised.

Some prize winners from the past. Vectorman316’s prize request was the boots. These can be found in FootRight/MaleTech and Legwear/Kneepads. And Yautja’s prize request was the belt/suspenders/pouch which can be found in Belt/Military.

I hope you don’t mind but I got really swoll so I could model these items properly.

Taking the week off

I am having some personal issues this week and won’t be around The sight. Sorry for the inconvience, but I am majorly out of sorts thisweek.

Character Design Contest ♯134- Itemised

Ok guys, earlier this week MadJack was kind enough to provide us with a plethora of new items to use. You can find a list of them here. So your challenge this week is simple. You must create an image using any three of these items. That’s it. Well no actually that’s not it. You must use items from three different sub-categories (e.g. headgear-standard, headgear-glasses and insignia-shapes would be a viable combination, but not three from insignia-shapes, so no blood-splatter overuse). Hopefully that’s clear enough.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). 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.

Character Design Contest ♯133 (Great Intelligence) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯132 (One Slot) Winner

Yet another low turnout for the poll to mirror the low turnout for the entries, but even so, this poll did throw up some surprises. I knew it was going to be close, but I didn’t expect our eventual second place finisher to be the one challenging for the win, considering it was the most “standard” of our entries, but there you go. I guess people must have really liked it for this one.

And the second surprise comes from the fact that, according to my records (which admittedly do only cover Hammerknights and my own contests, so there may be a Jeff run contest I don’t know about here), this is the first CDC win for our winner, which is amazing considering his Power User status. But then Herr D (who won with his piece Foggy Moonrise On Aelihoh) was never one for being conventional. So congratulations Herr D, and well done to all of our contestants.

HOHOHO! MERRY CHR…. WAIT! WHAT?!

X-Mas in Summer?! Erm, well … something like that. I was bored and so I added “a few” new items to the ‘machine.

And now enjoy – that’s an order! 😉

Character Design Contest ♯133- Great Intelligence

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge I want you to create a character that is more likely to use their brain to solve problems rather than any physical might. This can come in any form you can think of (for example both super-intelligence and psychic powers would apply, but logical thinking and detective sleuthing are also applicable, vis-a-vis Sherlock Holmes or Batman) and doesn’t just have to be confined to superheroes, you can do Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Western, Noir, Anime, etc. You are also not just confined to heroes either, evil geniuses are welcomed, provided world domination is non-successful at this stage. Of course, it would be nice if you can show your character using their incredible mental abilities as well.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Authors Wanted!

Hello, Guys and Gals of the HeroMachine community!

 

I am writing today to let you all know that I am looking for people who may be interested in writing articles for the HeroMachine blog! As of late I have noticed that I am having difficulty getting my post out on time and that I have been letting the bulk of the writing duties to JR which I believe is a bit unfair. I personally can not commit to any additional writing time at the moment and so I turn to you the community for some help. If any of you are interested in taking up the keyboard for HeroMachine drop me an email at Kaldath@heromachine.com and we can discuss it.
