Open Critique Day #1

Hey, Linea24 here. Since I’m now a Blog Author, I thought that the first thing I would do was bring back Open Critique Day as a regular weekly feature. Now, before I say anything else, since this is my very first time ever doing a blog post, I ask that you go easy on me. As for how this goes, you post a work of yours, finished or WIP (aka work in process, for those who are new to abbreviations), and then others give you critiques on your work. Right now, I’m going to go ahead and say that I would prefer that you post HM pictures, but I do not mind if you post the occasional non-HM picture or piece of writing. All I ask is that you only post pictures that are your own design and not any that copyrighted or based off of copyrighted characters. As for pieces of writing, I’m not sure about whether fan fiction is allowed, but for right now, just in case, don’t post fan fiction either.

    Copyright-shmopyright. I think, to redesign Batman or Doctor Strange, or other famous character is the most interesting things with HeroMachine. But the rules are the rules, I guess, that’s why I will show my 100% original character.
    When I was a kid I imagined my own superheroes. I didn’t buy comics, that’s why I had to use imagination. There were many weird characters – when I heard about some hero like Batman but didn’t know about him much I just imagined. I had Batman with the powers of Marvel’s Cloak, Spiderman who could attach his webs to the clouds and Superman who could read minds. And I had a lot of original characters, one of them was this guy, Cosmo. He was a space traveler with an array of power rings to choose from. Once I stumbled upon Heromachine I immediately turned him from a paper figure to a HM creation, and that’s where I see how much I’ve written and it’s time for me to shut up because I type too much!

    @Stulte: Kudos. That blood looks great and the emotion really shows on his face.
    One VERY small thing though, if he`s meant to have hurt himself with that tool in his hand, it should have blood on it too. Otherwise ignore. Great job.

    Welcome to OCD, Linea, thanks for bringing it back!

    @ Worf
    Thank you! Her injury isn’t supposed to be self inflicted, but it’s interesting that you got that impression.

  6. Worf says:

    @Linea: Care to comment on the work submitted, as you were the one that brought back OCD?
    Maybe we should implement a rule that if someone posts something they should critique someone else’s work too.

    @Everyone else: OCD was about everyone commenting on everyone else’s work. Giving tips and so on. If this is to be a mainstay on the site (and I hope it is) people other than me (or Linea) should chime in too. Remember, pretty much everyone on this site is very friendly. Just offer something constructive…..

    @ Worf
    Makes sense. I guess I didn’t get how this OCD-thing really worked.

    @Worf: Guess I should have, but I had to post this and run because I wasn’t going to have any access to the internet for the rest of the day on Saturday. And yeah, I think that your post-a-work-give-a-critique would be a good idea.
    Plus, I think I should change the day that OCD happens on since I don’t think that many people are on here on Saturday. Maybe a Friday or Saturday?
