JRroundup- Doctor Who Series 8: Hopes for the new season

So, I saw the first advert for the next series of Doctor Who earlier today, announcing the date for broadcast of the first episode. Which of course can only mean one thing, MASSIVE HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To kick off, I’ve decided to do a top 5 yay and nay list of things I do and don’t want to see in the new series. Now, quick disclaimer before we get into it, these are my opinions, if you agree that’s cool, if you disagree that’s cool too. I want this to be a discussion not a one sided agreement fest.

So without further ado, lets get into it, after the jump of course.

Character Design Contest ♯80- Steampunk

This week I’m going to go out on a limb and try something that could completely bomb. This week I want you to create something in a steampunk style. It can be a character, an object, a vehicle or a machine, but it must be steampunk. If you don’t know what that is, google (and google images) is your friend.

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.

Weilyn – HeroMachine remembers one of its BEST!!

Today I write to honor the passing  of a member of the HeroMachine Moderation staff, Weilyn. I was saddened today to learn of her passing by a close friend of hers, our very own Stulte who created the image above in memorial to her! When HammerKnight due to health reasons had to step down as moderator for a time leaving the running of this place solely on my shoulders Weilyn was the first person I reached out to and invited to join the Moderation Team here at HeroMachine because I saw how helpful and friendly she was and KNEW she would be a wonderful moderator.

I remember how honored and excited she was to be a moderator and how eager she was to be able to give back to our community and help you all with all things HeroMachine! We private messages back and forth for several days as she grilled me on the things she needed to know to be an effective moderator and on how to posts to the blog and together with Her, Jr, and djuby I felt we had one of the finest group of Mods anywhere on the net!

I don’t know any details of her passing but what I can say is the Weilyn will be missed dearly by many here on this site, and to her friends and family that many be reading this you have my most heart felt condolences! Rest In Peace My Friend!

( Below after the Jump you will find a few of Weilyn’s HeroMachine Creations that I have selected as well as a Link to her Gallery on the forum )

EDIT: Added more of Weilyn’s art below as suggested by Jr.

Character Design Contest ♯79 (Inspired By Music 2) Poll

I would advise people to listen to the songs that inspired these pieces when making their decision. Some of the choices make more sense when put into context.

Anarchangel’s song- Lykke Li- Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone

Cliff’s song- Perfect Sunset & Midori- Secrets

Son4′s song- Prince- The Future (Remix)

Stulte’s song- Mussorgsky- Night On Bald Mountain

Vectorman’s song- The Sword- Freya

Character Design Contest ♯78 (Strike A Pose)- Winner

This weeks poll, right from the very start, was a three horse race in terms of the votes. At one point mid-week it was even a three way tie, but it eventually spaced out to finish with a ten vote margin covering the top three (that’s ten points between first and third, half the points that covered first to second last week). But only one person could come out on top. And that person was Gargantua for their entry demon. Congrats Gargantua, please go speak to dblade about your prize if you so wish, and congratulations to everyone else who entered, there were some fantastic entries.
