Character Design Contest ♯93- Here Come The Girls

Ok, time to be sexist and say "sorry guys, you aren't allowed in this contest." Because what I want you guys to do this week is come up with the best female character you can. Sounds simple right? Well, to make it a bit more interesting, you only get one shot at it. That's right, only one entry per person. I don't know how Cliff is going to cope. 😉 It doesn't matter what genre you do or if the character is a hero, villain or an ordinary person, just so long as they're female. And obviously, keep it within the rules please, nothing too lewd or costumes that are too revealing please.

The contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time) as per usual. 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.

    If I entered a femme alien or monster, would it laying eggs or having mammaries be enough to count it as femme?

  2. JR19759 says:

    @Herr D- I’d rather you keep it recognisably female, so mammaries would be acceptable. But I don’t think it would be a good idea to show egg laying.

    Just ONE JR?
    I can do this .. I can do this.
    deep breath uhhhhh whew …..

    Here Comes The Girls make me think of WWII USO shows.
    I happened to have this pose I did as Poison Ivy as a birthday card for my friend Poisonivyguy last month.
    I thought it was perfect for my idea for this contest.
    Not sure if she’s GI Jane or Camo Carmen.
    Which do you like best? Or do you have a better name?
    Here she is in all her Ol’ Glory.
    (btw if you notice even her fingernails are camo)

  4. Kicktar says:

    Man, I have several characters I’d like to post. I guess I’ll go with the character that I most recently threw into a blender. Liz “Vorna” Novar, a Sun’s Breath Warrior.

  5. TOOL says:

    HEY EVERYONE! I haven’t been as active lately as I have been in the past and I know that this is not for this particular contest but I wanted to show off what I made today. I didn’t see any boards on showing off characters so I thought I would post it here. I hope that’s okay. I am hoping to try and be around more.

  6. JR19759 says:

    @Tool- Though it’s good to see you back and stuff, I’d rather we kept the thread for contest entries ok.

  7. Stulte says:

    I’m gonna go with my personal favourite of my HM characters: Maria I Braganza

  8. Guy Diga says:

    @Stulte- Holy flying Spaghetti Monster!

  9. Carmen says:

    I’ve entered these contests a few times already, though I’m still new (I found this site when the forums were down… so I should probably make an official account) and I WILL be entering this contest, too. But my question is this- how many machiners are ACTUALLY female?

    I’m starting to get the feeling I’m one of the few…

  10. JR19759 says:

    @Carmen- I know out of our currently active users both Linea24 and Lime are female. Kaylin is as well and there are another few who aren’t very active anymore (such as Isia & Kytana). But yeah, it is a bit male dominated in terms of members (although having said that, it’s hard to tell because of usernames sometimes).

  11. Carmen says:

    @JR19769 Yikes. well. this probably will not win in that case.

    Here’s Ms. C (pronounced Missy). She’s a hardcore rapper who turns the tables on most rap vids by having her own bitches and hos wearing next to nothing while she’s fully dressed.

  12. ClarkWinchester says:

    How do I enter?

  13. JR19759 says:

    @ClarkWinchester- First upload the picture to an image hosting site (e.g. deviantart, photobucket, Heromachine Forums). Open the image in a new tab, copy the link to that page then paste it into the reply box. Then post the reply.

  14. Stulte says:

    @ Carmen
    Great posing.

  15. Midnight Owl says:

    Does it have to be a human female?

  16. Carmen says:

    @ Carmen
    Great posing.

    Thanks! it was fun.

    Ms. C is probably my favorite character I’ve made on this program. I may do some more of her. just for funsies.

    @ Carmen
    Great posing.

  17. Skybandit says:

    Didn’t get my version of Octobriana done in time for the last contest, but I don’t see any reason to waste all that work.

  18. okester says:

    @Carmen Ms. C looks great and all, but those backup boys… YOWZA! O.O *eyes pop out, jaw drops and tongue unfolds to the floor* :3 <3

  19. JR19759 says:

    @MidnightOwl- No, but humanoid would be preferable (so as she’s recognisably female).

  20. BurnedSmackdown says:

    This is my first ever entry into one of these contests so this is fun

  21. Blue Blazer says:


    She has the power to bring to reality any image she draws.

  22. Demoninthenight says:

    My take on a sexy zombie hunter. Also this is my first time entering a design.

    Molly Mayhem

  23. Sabrina says:

    I’m pretty new to Heromachine (as in two months of casual usage, perhaps?) so bear with me. Any feedback is welcome! I created this character for a tabletop RPG. I thought this would be a simple idea to create on heromachine, but it was actually more involved and required more layering than I thought it would, hence the many errors.

    She doesn’t have a name yet, but she’s a cosmic entity of sorts. (They’re known as the Invulnerables in our game.)

  24. melmo44 says:

    I’m really happy with how this came out. So I wrote her a little story.
    The Commander watches them ride over the rise, banner in hand. The Hydra, bright blue on black, a symbol to strike fear into lesser men. And lesser men they were, overgrown children throwing their weight about to prop themselves up. She had not put on her helm, and she could see their haughtiness waver as they recognized her. Heavens help them all should they find themselves facing the edge of her blade.

    Sidenote- Proud female machiner here! Carmen, I think there are more than a few of us ‘hiding in plain sight’ as it were. Also, nice to see so many new faces round here!

  25. Stulte says:

    @ Sabrina
    Very cool! What RPG did you make her for?

  26. Keric says:

    This lady’s job is pirating, and she was named Queen. -that should clear up any ? on the name…

  27. Anarchangel says:

    I’m going to enter Magenta in this contest:

    I have to say though, I think I’ve already lost. There are some really good entries this week. Especially Stulte and Carmen’s entries. 🙂

  28. Lily says:

    So yeah…
    Here’s mine. She’s the queen of Valaria.

  29. cliff says:

    @Carmen. Hey Grrl! There are a few gay guys here who I am sure likes your entry as well. Me being one of them. SEX-Y! Good poses, Great work:D

  30. RobM says:

    Okay, here is Isabel Intrepid, the world’s first supermodel daredevil. I’ve included three pics to give a more complete sense of the character, but of course, JR, use whichever one you choose for judging.

  31. Lime says:

    Angrboda is the giantess said to be the mother of Loki’s best-known children, Fenris-Ulf, Hel, and Jormangand.

  32. RobM says:

    It’s been awhile since I’ve viewed every entry for one of these contests, but I have to say it feels like this one has an especially large number of great ideas well executed with a ton of diversity in subject matter and styles. I’m impressed ‘Machiners.

  33. Stulte says:

    @ RobM
    Agreed! I hope JR does an honourable mentions on this contest.

  34. JR19759 says:

    @Stulte- Sorry but not likely. I’m going to be very busy on Sunday and the honourable mentions take around an hour to do, which I can’t really spare. And I can’t pre-do a Poll post and schedule it to post whilst I’m busy, because that would mean a) I wouldn’t be giving everyone the full amount of time to enter and b) the poll would be open earlier than it should. I agree there are some entries here that should be highlighted even if they don’t make the poll, but it won’t be feasible this week sorry.

  35. Sabrina says:


    It’s an older game, the Marvel Superhero roleplaying game published by TSR. We’re using the system (commonly referred to by fans as FASERIP) but we have it set in our own universe right now, so no actual Marvel characters.

    I’ll leave it at that, because if you ever give a geek a chance to talk about her RPG, she may never stop talking. 😉

  36. gemmashine12 says:

    This is Sandi. She’s an assassin, if you couldn’t tell 🙂

  37. Vampyrist says:

    Here’s my entry, the heroine Cascade. She is a gifted hydrokinetic who also leads a superteam.

  38. Stulte says:

    @ Sabrina
    Cool! I’ve heard of that one, but never played it myself. To be honest I think at least ninety percent of the RPGs I’ve played have been Swedish. Ambitious of you to modify it for your own setting.

  39. cliff says:

    @ Sabrina. Oh yeah I love the old Marvel game, had it and MOST of the accessories, still have most of what I had I think.
    and we played in Marvel Universe namely we had the Fort Worth Avengers where Vision was our Liasone,
    but also had games in our own Universe: The New Breed with genetically constructed Heroes.
    Kewl that someone else had played that old game.

    Ok guys, this weeks contest is closed. The poll will be up shortly.
