Character Design Contest ♯67- Animal Themed Characters

The Ronseal of challenges this one, it does exactly what it says on the tin (sorry if y'all don't get that reference, I think it might just be a British thing, but the opportunity was there and I couldn't not say it). So yeah, what I want you guys to do this week is create a hero or villain with an animal theme. I'm not looking for human-animal hybrid characters like Tigra or Man-Bat, but human characters with animal themed powers and/ or costumes, like Batman, Spider-Man and Black Manta. This one should be fun.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: 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.

    This feels like a contest I can hold my own in, so I’ll offer up the greatest infiltration/escape artist “the Cockroach” and the leaping lawman himself, Morgan Island’s avenging amphibian, “the Incredible Frogman!!!”

    Yay, Frogman!

    JF19759 – First, it’s on my computer, as it’s kind of old, but still mine. Would tinypic be okay?

  6. LunaArco says:

    Oh, I figured out a way. Thanks though! 😉

    Here he is! Forget catwoman – Its fricking Bulldog!

    P.S. I have been having trouble exporting from Chrome, so I’ve been using text and downloading via IE.
    Has anyone else had a problem? If so, is it possible Chrome has broken the export function again?

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    Yes, the last Chrome update broke Exporting again. Hopefully the next one will fix it as happened last time.

    First a few new ones:

    Redback – six arms, enhanced reflexes/agility and senses, increased strength, can stick to any surface and administer a lethal toxic poison with his touch (redesign)

    TasmanianDevil – healing factor, heightened senses, ferocious combatant

    Seahawk – biocybernetic wings and bionic upgrades

    Goshawk – natural wings, bird of prey mentality, fastest flyer in nature

    Then a few older:

    The Black Bat – golden age hero with new powers: X-ray vision, infrared sight, a vastly expanded field of view, and the power to invert the light absorbed in his eyes, allowing him to “see” his surroundings as darkness.

    The Spider – golden age hero with new powers: traits and abilities of a spider such as the ability to grow additional razorsharp ‘spider-legs’ from his back, agility and reflexes beyond that of a normal human, an extremely well developed sense of balance, the power to generate pheromones that have a variety of effects on others, enhanced strength, and the ability to adhere to surfaces unaided in order to climb and stay onto vertical and horizontal surfaces like walls and ceilings without falling.

    Mygale – french anarchist and parkour master with increased speed, reflexes and agility as well as superhuman strength and the spider-like ability to stick to virtually any surface and crawl across. (mygale = tarantula)

    And finally two of my oldest characters:

    Cockroach – wears a cybernetic battle armor

    Scorpio – wears a cybernetic battle armor
