META: Out for the morning

Just wanted you all to know I'll be out for the morning taking my lovely wife to the dentist, so the contest winner and new contest won't be posted til this afternoon.

Until then, feel free to discuss whatever you like in the comments, including nominating specific contest entries you thought were deserving of a win; why bald guys are awesome; anything related to super-heroes; or anything else you like.

    Why bald men are awesome…

    Patrick Effin’ Stewart. Nuff said.

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    Did I mention I saw Patrick Stewart at DragonCon? He was awesome.

  3. Ian says:

    How about a contest where entries must have their characters in non-traditional HeroMachine poses (such as profiles, backs turned, “action” poses, etc.).

    Or another idea: make a cover for a comic book (including logo, sidebar, headlines, etc.).

  4. Danny Beaty says:

    Contest idea: Replace an existing superhero with a similar superhero of our own creation. For example, create a man-god to replace Superman, or a dark avenger of the night to replace Batman, or a speedster to replace the Flash, etc.

  5. Dennis says:

    How about a contest where you have to combine 2 superheroes together?

    How about a contest of pirates

  7. kyle says:

    or a Disney/marvel thing, knights,villains,
    make your own caption,

  8. Gene says:

    How about a Halloween Theme for the next contest. Slasher, Urban Legend, etc. Maybe we could get Jeff to throw in some new heads for this one. Additional monster parts, Pumpkin head, etc.

    I Was Thinking The Next Contest Should Be A “Hero” And There Secret Identity.

    Coarse If Was My choice, I’d Have A Steampunk Hero Contest.

    Oh, And I Think We All Know Whos Going To Win, I Wont Say Anything Just Yet, But If I’m Right I’ll Let Ya Know.

    Here’s Hoping I Get My 3rd Honorable.

  11. kyle says:

    Halloween Theme nice

  12. Hammerknight says:

    How about for the next few contest we limit ourselves to a few entries, because Jeff is hard at work on the mini.

  13. Jeff Hebert says:

    I think some sort of limit might be in order, yes. More to encourage the power of good self-editing than anything else — constraints can actually lead to a better product, sometimes. Something to try, anyway.

  14. Gero says:

    Why not have a limit? The caption is limited to like 3, right? As for upcoming contests, I liked the idea above of “new” versions of existing superheroes…

  15. dementedtheclown says:

    They wouldn’t do it cause of copyrights

  16. Tristan says:

    the Next character contest should be a team shot one where you create a a super team with a bunch of different people in the photo. but they would all have to be in the same picture.
