Character Design Contest ♯68- Angels & Demons

Ok guys , for your challenge this week I want you to create either an angelic character or a demonic character. Now this could be done in two different ways. The first would be to do the whole feathered wings/ horns ideas that are the classic representations of the two, or you could create a whole new character based upon a known theological character (i.e. Gabriel or Lucifer). I'll be interested to see what you come up with.

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.

    OK, I’ll take a whack at it. Here’s an angel-as-superhero character I created ages ago: The Blue Angel.

    Don’t know if the link is in the proper format. Let me know.

  2. JR19759 says:

    @Niall Mor- The link needs to be direct to the image, not to the hosting page. Try opening the image in a new tab then posting that link.

  3. Niall Mor says:

    Hi JR. Not quite sure how to do that. Could you explain, please?

  4. Amineh says:

    Ok, well hello. It’s my first time participating in a contest. And yeah, well, here it goes!
    I was inspired by Saint George, and the usual way he was shown in art throughout ages.
    Hope it qualifies! Cheers!

  5. JR19759 says:

    @Niall Mor- Yup that’s it.

  7. LetoII says:

    Hello,It’s my first time in here…I have a character ready,don’t know how to upload tho.

  8. JR19759 says:

    @LetoII- What you need to do is upload the picture to a hosting page, such as Deviantart or the Heromachine Forums. Then you open the image in a new tab and post the link to that tab in the reply box below.

  9. LetoII says:

    @JR19759 -chrome doesn t want me to

  10. JR19759 says:

    @LetoII- Chrome doesn’t want you to what? If you’re having trouble exporting from HM3, try using another browser. You shouldn’t have any problem uploading to hosting sites or posting the links to images here.

    I am sorry to say that, that link is not going to work, You need to upload your image too the internet on a photo sharing site, such as Photobucket, DeviantART, imageshack, Our forums here at Heromachine, or a similar such site. Once uploaded to one of these site you need to copy the URL link that leads directly to that image.

  13. LetoII says:

    did it!!!thanks JR19759

  14. Stulte says:

    My final entry: Locust

    Inspired by the locust from Revelation 9.

  15. Mikodite says:

    Here! The Light Barrer!

    Is it an angel, or is it a deamon? That I will let you figure out!

  16. WillyPete says:

    Harshit, I keep getting File Not Found on all your links… Not sure why, might just be an unfortunate choice of screen name.
    Armineh, not sure if Saint George belongs in this category, but that’s a REALLY nice picture!
    Lot of other really nice stuff in this one…
    Should make for one heck of a contest!

  17. Camruth says:

    Here is my entry, Triclopeans stand about 16 feet tall and are immensely strong (but somewhat stupid).

  18. LetoII says:” title=”Albarn.jpg

    This is my demon.
    I tried to make it in a classic style, just like the angel I posted yesterday

  19. Lord_Obsidious says:

    Two fiery females from me today, with Deville, in her “Fallen Demon” form:
    And Incenda, the Angelic Foxy Flame:

  20. Amineh says:

    Hey Thanks! 🙂
    Well Saint George was an inspiration, I tried to picture him like an angel. I put a lot of work in it, so I hope Saints are not so far from Angels 😛

    Like a told Dann a few days ago, this is not how this works. You need to upload your image too the internet on a photo sharing site, such as Photobucket, DeviantART, imageshack, Our forums here at Heromachine, or a similar such site. Once uploaded to one of these site you need to copy the URL link that leads directly to that image. Giving the path to the image on your computer will not allow us to see it as we can not access your computer!

    My name is legion; for we are many
    I fell. I was prideful and I fell. I believed man was below me, that Father’s command was wrong and I fell. I saw the humans as base creatures, destined to only leave destruction and I fell. I led a rebellion, led a charge to remove the malignant race and I fell. I led it, so I fell the farthest. I am Lucifer and I fell.
    I fell right into the gates of hell and I met a creature worse than man: demon. I made it my goal to slaughter this scourge upon the earth. Humans do what they do by accident, but demons do it out of pure malice. They seek to destroy all that Father has made because they hate Him. Thousands of them have fallen by my sword and more will join them until my last breath or until I have redeemed myself in His eyes worthy enough to rejoin Him.
    My time down here has changed me. Humanity is beautiful for all their faults. They may destroy things, but they do it to grow, to reach new heights. They only hope to experience all that they can, all that Father has created. They are flawed little beings, but without flaws, how can something strive to be better. I am like them in this regard. I have erred and now I seek to grow. I hope I can become someone worthy of Father’s love and eventually, his trust.

    Ok guys, this weeks contest is over. Now I have the unenviable task of choosing a final five. If I can get below a final eight I’ll be surprised. Anyway, the poll will be up at some point, provided I can choose.
