Character Design Challenge #188 – Masterworks.


Ok folks, this week your CDC Challenge is to select a portion of the painting above – The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh – and recreate it using HeroMachine.

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 9:00am Eastern on Sunday, September 25th.

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).

    Debated on using the big balls or not, decided on using them hope that doesnt cost me.

    Well, I’m out of time that I can use on this one. So, in explanation, Vincent and an artist of ANOTHER kind, Dahl had the problem of uncontrolled psychic remote through-a-partner-viewing, and, worse, it was across alternate dimensions. So, to make a long story shorter than the explanation, this is the view one of Evil Wonka’s captives had two hours later during the Knid battle in the background from the alternate (armed) Wonkavator about 100 meters higher and to the left of Wonka’s previous fallback point. Evil Wonka’s castle and the old cathedral where the locals sought shelter are visible in the early morning light.
