Character Design Challenge ♯159- Redesign

Ok guys, for this weeks contest I want you to redesign or redo one of your old characters. Everyone has characters that they've done in the past and everyone should have improved since they did those characters, so let's see how much you have improved. Please bear in mind though, that to qualify you must include the original picture of the character you are redesigning. Oh, and obviously, only redesign your own character. It should be blatantly obvious, but just so there's absolutely no confusion.

As per usual, no limits on the number of 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.

While I loved Cliff's entry, I have to give the win to HerrD for his very creative, and fairly creepy, entry . Normally I can't handle clowns, but I love this guy!

Character Design Challenge ♯158- Power Up

Ok guys, with this weeks challenge, what I want you to do is create a superhero or supervillain. The catch being you must show them using their superpower. That is the only requirement, the type of power doesn't matter, the character just has to be shown using it in your entry. Simple really.

Kaldath’s Corner: DAREDEVIL on Netflix!

Daredevil-televison

I signed up for Neflix 2 days ago and binge watched the first season Of Daredevil! Well all I have to say is ..... This is ONE HELL of a GOOD series! This is not a review post, though I may do one of those later if I can figure out how to write it without spoilers! What this post is however is a recommendation! If any of you in the Heromachine community are contemplating signing up for a Netflix account but are unsure if it is worth it or not, well I am here to say in My own personal option DAREDEVIL alone is worth the price of admission!

 

I am Glad that I have waited as long as I have however to sign up for it. Watching the first season has left me wanting more and the second season is only a few short weeks away. If I had to wait months to watch season 2 I think I would be climbing the walls by now, that's how good I think this series is!

 

Well that's all I have to say so let me leave you a taste of whats to come if you decided to watch this show with the season one and season two trailer!
