Character Design Contest ♯118- Non-Standard

Ok, gonna try something a bit different for this weeks contest. So, the idea is you can create any kind of character you want, in any genre you feel like. But the catch is you cannot use any items from Body- Malestandard or Body- Femalestandard slots. Any other body items are fine, so mech, monster, zombie, material, military and alternate bodies are all open for use, but you can't use the standard bodies. If you want to make it even more interesting, try not using items from any categories with the word "standard" in them, but that's not a rule for this contest,  the bit about the standard bodies is. Have fun with all your poses guys, because that's gonna be some fun masking.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). 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.

    How’s this guy for you?? Hope that I did it right. Anyway this guy is called The Wonder, he moves from place to place keeping order in the land.

    Shale the simpleton is a nice guy who smashes everyone he loves by accident.

    @MonkeyBoy2048- Sorry but the torso and arms are from the male standard body set, so your entry doesn’t qualify.

  4. MonkeyBoy2048 says:

    Ok thanks, I’ll make a different one.

    Entry #1
    OK I hope this is elegable. I did this for the Single Slot challenge on the Forums, but no one ever responded or posted after it. AND since those are challenges and not contests ….
    SO I am entering it in this contest
    Here is my flower fairy
    made everything from hair, to eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, flower, pot and soil from only a single Companion/Standard
    the blob creature with eyes (Page 5, Row 1, 3rd from Right) they range from 1×1 for some shade/shadows to 500×500 for the background and every size in between.
    It took me about two hours.

    Here is Rage, more about him in my thread!
    I did not use anything from male/female standard body

  8. Ubiquitous Pixel says:

    I have no idea what I just created…I became a mindlessness mad scientist here and summoned something…

  9. headlessgeneral says:

    Not a new creation. But it fits the subject. And I’m pretty sure I haven’t entered it in a contest before. And I miss entering contest. So here is

    I’ve wanted to do a rock kinda guy for a while and it hit me. This guy, lapis rock and his summoner

    I’d been wanting to see what I could do with some of the many female poses that are in HM3 for a while, so I tok the opportunity of this contest to re-do one of my characters using the alternate female body parts.

    For background, my first Scarlett image was done not with HeroMachine but with Fábrica de Hérois Animated aka Hero-O’Matic. My first HM3 version of her was done for one of the Friday Night Fights team contests. Here’s a comparison image of the three versions.

    Scarlett was one of my favorite Fábrica de Hérois characters, but I have to say that I really do prefer the diversity that I get with HM3 and this contest shows why. With the ability to do masking, and the variety of alternate poses, I’ve found very few characters that I can’t bring to life, either my own stable of characters or virtually any character from the pro- or fanzines.

    Just remember, Apprentice! Summon thee not what thou canst not send back!
    OTHER than that, very nice… 😉

    And, a dozen of those! {Man, this month is going to be hard on the budget!}

    Lol 🙂

    I really like this challenge!! Everyone is getting so creative!! I may do a few more if I have the time.

    For now, here’s “Just as good as a spotlight,”

    This is my Dapper Fiddle Playing Fox. Why? Because I like dapperly dressed foxes and I like the violin. Also, first time attempting light/shading in HM. Hope I didn’t fail!

  16. Carmen says:

    Also, sorry for such crummy quality. I couldnt get it to save without it moving all over so I had to screencap it =/

  17. Skoul says:

    Well this looks to be one tough competition. So without further ado, my entry:
    I got a little confused between liquidating and liquefying.

    P.S. It’s supposed to be called ‘Liquefying ones assets’ not ‘Liquiefying’. oops!

  18. Anarchangel says:

    Well I have to enter Mudslide in this contest don’t I? He’s the best non-standard character I’ve created.

    I love this one. Brava!

    Entry #2
    I actually did this last night for my own interest and my Elysium storyline with Satyr Party Animal Justin McKinney. I decided to add more mytic types to the party, not just the Fae Kiths: Toreador vampire go go boy, werewolf, Bastet, Minotaur, Centaur …
    But realized it also fit the Non-Standard contest criteria.
    He doesn’t have a name yet.

    So this Bagheera Bastet (Were Panther from Werewolf The Apocolypse)
    was originally a mortal who as a young boy became intriqued with any and everthing Egyption in school
    He became a Egyptian historian
    and not long after a museum curator of Eqyption Antiquities
    in his passion and through his museum he met several neo-pagan following the Egyption path,
    he ended up joining the coven
    and actually ended up as their high priest due to his vast knowledge, connections and love of the Egyptian pantheon
    during a Calling Down the Goddess, he summoned Bastet and litterally became a were panther

    the akari, or “searching” hhase. During the first, a were-panther revels in her new identity. Anything she cares to do, she will do with total abandon.

    The second phase, the pourra, or “foundation” is one of calm and contemplation. Many Bagheera set up semipermanent homes in their pourra phase, and establish libraries and networks of friends. The cat finds a serious mate, raises a family and sees to their well-being.

    he discovered that black Bagheera are more prodiminant in females, and finds some humor in it considering he is gay.

    He has a cat companion/familur that goes just about everywhere with him

    goes to the Fae Club Elysium
    looking for more coven members and an eventual mate.

    although this isn’t a Inspired By Music contest, I did have musical inspiration never the less, as does all my Elysium/Justin McKinney story/cast pics

    (I’ve seen this track called Cat Lore too)

    Ralas’Ovon, the Crushing Void (and Dark God of Despair). A sexless creature looking more like a floating cloak with an endless abyss inside that never seems fully corporeal. It’s only features are a strange, melted face and large, vicious claws. One of the most insidious of the Eight, Ralas’Ovon moves like a wispy shadow, looking for a way to invade the minds of mortals. A new member of an ever-expanding pantheon I have going. I tried not to use anything standard with him either.

  22. Herr D says:

    Ed had a ‘universe stone’ but didn’t believe that it made a loud bang, accompanied with a flash. He put it under the high-powered lens plate . . .

    * No standard body parts, and not much in the way of standard categories–there ARE no nonstandard patterns, for example . . .

  23. Carmen says:

    Thanks, Brons! Heres another one! lol
    I call it ,”Cerf”

    I never make up stories for these things. but this one just came to me =) hope you like it!

    In the forest dwells the peaceful Cerf. A creature that will come to your aid if you are ever trapped or injured in the woods. She carries a jug of healing water and a wrapped package of food and medicinal herbs. Despite how much she dislikes most of the work men do in her forest, she values ALL life, and will not refuse to help even the most wicked of hearts.
