Your Character Design Challenge this week is to use the bodypart articles – head, body, hands, etc to create a dynamic action pose. No facial features, no clothing, and no colour should be added.
Our guest judge for this challenge is AMS.
There is no limit on number of entries this week. Please follow the instructions below for naming your files.
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 have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in 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 :,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, 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).
This contest will close on Sunday, April 9th at 9:00am Eastern.
An action pose:
Are other items allowed to make body parts, such as Insignia-Shapes?
Girl fight pose
Wall Vaulting Pose
Yes, you may use any shapes.
so the “use the bodypart articles only” isnt really a rule then
WOW! that’s really good!
Okay um wow. That is really good, and I do parkour myself so it’s especially nice to see it as a pose on heromachine!! Good job.
Thanx yall! N really, you do, KJR? Thats so cool! I’ve always wanted to learn.
Sorry for late reply.
I replied to that message on a break from work and forgot guide details. I will accept any black and white shapes that are needed to form a complete body form. I use them for masking also.
Not sure if this counts as an action pose, but…
Alien coming out of chest…
