Patriot Contest Finalists

I'm happy to announce the ten finalists for the Patriot Contest, the winner of which receives a free custom color character illustration by yours truly. There were some great entries, I want to thank everyone who participated.

In no particular order, the finalists are:

Vote for your favorite! The winner will be the entry that gets the most votes by Tuesday morning, October 7, so vote early and vote often. I've reset the polling to allow you to vote once per day, and don't be shy about sending out notices to your friends and families to come and vote for yours if you like. What's more American than stuffing the ballot box, after all?!


Good luck to all ten finalists, and thanks again for all the great entries everyone!

    Not relating to the contest but I was messing around trying to build a brick hero on HM 2.5 the downloaded version and noticed that many of the gauntlets dont have matches on the left hand.

    As much as I’d love to see Candace’s Mountains, I gotta go with Brittanica for being a pretty nifty use of the HM assets. Well done!

  3. Kaldath says:

    Thank you, I must admit that Brittannica is HEAVILY inspired by the Original Captain Britian Costume

  4. Rick says:

    Gotta agree with John… Brittanica is a great design. I appreciate seeing Dauntless up there though!

  5. Danny Beaty says:

    You really think “Manadian” is better than “Patriot Hawk”? “Manadian” doesn’t even wear a whole coat.

  6. Jeff Hebert says:

    I admit I was swayed by the Manadian’s pun. I’m a sucker for a bad pun well executed.

    I almost put Patriot Hawk in the finals, but I don’t know, it didn’t quite have that “something extra”. It’s a very good design, though, no question.

    Manadian for the win!

    Any nationalistic hero who looks like a village people reject and whose name screams “camp” is the hero for me!

    Unlike Captain America, at least this guy wears his sexuality on his sleeve.

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    To be honest, JacK, that’s part of the reason he and “Super-Fly Guy” are included — I wanted a spectrum of approaches, including humorous ones.

    Looks like Kaldath is going to stomp the competition here too, just like the HotW contests… 😀

  10. Kaldath says:

    What can I say? Honestly I thought my Character Constitution had a better shot then Brittannica .. But then again Brittannica is a Hero Of The Week Winner over at UGO

  11. Ashton Thomas says:

    Brittanca is the obvious winner

  12. Cory says:

    As much as I like agreeing with people, and I do agree that Brittanica is well constructed…he just looked too….busy, to me, and I didn’t really understand his patriotism, but, Im not a genius, and Im not Jeff herbert, so maybe I dont have to understand, but still, got plenty of time before the winner wins…

  13. Cory says:

    and I also gotta say, I threw Greenpeace in there as a third fill-in, not really expecting anything, I thought American Way was a great construct, cept he was supposed to have energy on his left hand, I guess that got lost in translation…

  14. haz says:

    Condottiero wins me over for being so very suave.

    Maybe it’s because I’m an American who grew up watching Due South, but Manadian is deeply disturbing to me.

  15. Whit says:

    I’m just shocked I’m a finalist. This makes me very happy.

  16. Level says:

    I think it’s neat that two of mine are finalists, although it splits the votes, if you add them together, mine could be in second or third place.

  17. Rick says:

    Yay! I came in last! Seriously, in Bizarro world I rock. Just sayin…
