Character Contest 62 Winners!

The votes are in, the polls are closed, and we have our winners for Character Contest 62! The new Male Fantasy Warrior Template will be by xXBladeXIIXxx, and the new Female Fantasy Warrior Template will be by Sean David Ross! Congratulations to both of them, and further to all of the Finalists. It was a close vote at the end.

I'll need to get the text save strings from both of those chaps; in the event I don't get them in the next two weeks, I'll have to switch to the second-place Finalist.

Full results and images after the jump.

    Great choices! Congrats to xXBladeXXIIXx and SDR! Outstanding job by all the finalists!

  2. dblade says:

    Both winners are excellent choices as templates. Really shows off what you can do with HM3 in a very direct way.

    I’m just happy somebody in the Blade family won! πŸ™‚

    Congrats to the winners and all finalists.

  4. MartianBlue says:

    I have to ask, xXBladeXIIXxx, was your character inspired by male Hawke from DA2? I already know he was. He looks dead on head wise, very impressive work.

  5. Myro says:

    Congrats to both of you.

  6. SeanDavidRoss says:

    Thank you.

  7. Me, Myself & I says:

    Nicely done folks.

  8. Sutter_Kaine says:

    Nice job, both of you. SDR, I found yours particularly inspired. She has a weird sort of Elvish/Viking vibe that should contrast but actually works pretty well and gives her a unique look. Elvish vikings. I think I’ll use that.

    Jeff – Twice you’ve said I was one of the top two finalists and this time I was in the top 3. Can I at least get a keychain, or maybe a mug? Preferably one that says something ironic on it, like “World’s Greatest Grandmother”. It would be ironic because I’m not a grandmother and apparently that’s what passes for irony these days. A t-shirt proclaiming something that isn’t intended to be a factual statement, I mean.

    Congrats to all Heromachinists that borrows your talent to this contest, specially the winnners πŸ™‚

    I was especially impressed with SeanDavidRoss’s female warrior. Bravo! or Brava! perhaps. I thought she was a hands down winner. Glad to see that so many agreed. Color, composition and feature use were all just top notch.

  14. The Imp says:

    Nice job, guys. Two well-deserved wins.

  15. spidercow2010 says:

    Excellent work all around, and two well-deserved wins, indeed. I especially love how both winners have some crazy-ass gleams in their eyes. Gonna open up flagons of berserker whoop-ass. Sorry to say ‘ass’ so much.

  16. Scorpidius says:

    Great work all round!!! And well done the two winners, they were cracking designs.



  17. Blazing Tornado says:

    Congrats to the winners! Those are some awesome templates!

    And a big thanks to the 23 people who voted for me!

  18. xXBladeXIIXx says:

    Hey guys, I just wanted to shout out a big thank you for the votes and comments, they are much appreciated. Everyone did a great job on their work!

    @ DBlade: Always a pleasure to rep the Blade family! πŸ˜€

    @ MartianBlue: Yes, the character’s head was originally a previous design based on Hawke I had made for fun, I just changed the nose and bloodstreak. Here’s the link if you’re interested.

  19. spidercow2010 says:

    Hmm, I just noticed: Not for nuthin, but xXBladeXIIXx’s guy looks not entirely unlike Charlie Sheen.

  20. The Eric says:

    I loved the colors on Sean’s character, they gave her a very cool Celtic feel.
