Character Design Challenge #187 – Your Choice of Sides


Ok folks, this week your CDC Challenge is to design a sidekick for the hero posted above: Major Patriot. Major Patriot, clearly an homage to Supes and the Cap, fought for justice through WWII and the early years of the Cold War before retiring to form and oversee The International Legion for Justice: a force for good made up of heroes from around the globe. Following his retirement, the mantle of Major Patriot was passed to his onetime sidekick.

The ILJ will be featured in future CDCs.

There is no limit on the number of entries. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck. The contest will close at 8:00am Eastern on Sunday, September 18th.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 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 warning. 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.


All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).
