What is your favorite movie based on a comic book and why? Live action or animated. Let’s hear what you have to say. No fighting or putting someone down for their choice, just share with us what you think.
The last few weeks have seen a decline in the participation of my Character redesign challenge so I figure I would give it a break for a week or two. Perhaps people are too busy working on FNF entries ? ( I hope so as that isn’t looking all the good at the moment either ) .. Regardless the challenge will be back next week, or the week after, until then happy Machining!
The description from the original Reddit request was:
One of the first characters for another of my sons.
Carlako is a female half-elf with blue eyes and red hair, garbed in elven chainmail armor. She wields a pair of longswords in battle, the first one burning with blue flames, the second one traced with blue lightning.
And here’s what I came up with:
Last week I asked you to redesign my character Charthea:
We only had a few entries, but despite the low turn out I was impressed with the those entries no the less! 4 pieces of art to choose from, and only a single spot for a winner, Who will it be ? …………………….
In the process of cleaning up some hard drive space, I came across some body outlines I drew back in 2006. I cleaned them up a bit and provide them here for downloading and printing. These are not part of HeroMachine 3, they’re just for folks who want to hand-draw (or use the computer with something like Paint if you want) outfits but need a body to hang them on.
These are all transparent PNGs so if you do want to use them in a painting application, they’re easy to isolate from the background.
As motivation to sketch more, I’ve been fulfilling requests from /r/characterdrawing. Here’s the one I did today:
The original description was:
Ozmuk Was a runt of an orc. Picked on by his brothers and sneered at by his elders, he would grow to despise them all. His only refuge was the old man in the Cabin. The Old man taught Ozmuk the art, and the dirty deeds he sought for payment were not too steep a price. Perhaps he even could grow to care for this Old Man. Then the Druid came and changed things forever. The old man burned. In order to survive, the young Ozmuk clung to the only one he knew – the killer. Soon after he was set free to return to his Tribe. They rejected him, of course. His pain grew too strong and he soon killed his brothers and parents. Ozmuk trusts few beings other than his rat, Dido. he spends most his time in the sewers of the cities so he can sneak into libraries to further his arcane knowledge. Recently he has been kidnapped and made a slave on a pirate ship. He is plotting, and he has already murdered 4 of the crew in their sleep.
Villains are fun to draw!
Last week on Kaldath’s Caption Challenge #21 I asked you to give me your best replacement Dialogue for this image:

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge I want you to create an alien hero or villain. They can be humanoid or non-humanoid.

As usual, no entry limit 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/.
