Pop Quiz: Setting the Scene

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge is:

"Rocky Background" by AMS

Make an environment or setting!

In other words, I just want the area where a character might be seen, but without the character. You can get some great ideas from the UGO Forums' Custom Backgrounds topic or the somewhat less-populated HeroMachine forum on the same subject if you need examples. Like the Fortress of Solitude without Superman, or a forest glen without the fairy, or a computer without a fat bald geek sitting at it writing this ... here ... paragraph. Hm.

Anyway. You only get one entry -- that's right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular contest, but instead of a whole week I'll announce the winner either tonight or first thing in the morning.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his "Bayou Belle" character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here's a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

The winner will receive their choice of either one item or one portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 release, or one Sketch of the Day style drawing where you pick the subject and I draw it how I like.

Good luck!
