Character Design Challenge #339: Inspired By Music

Ok guys, for this weeks contest I'm bringing back an old favourite theme of mine. The idea is that you create a piece of art using heromachine that is inspired by a piece of music of your choosing. It can be any piece of music and any style of art but you must post both a link to your entry (as per CDC rules) and a link to the song that inspired it on either youtube or soundcloud so I can judge how well the image fits the music you have chosen. This theme has given us some of the best CDC entries in the past, so I have high hopes of you guys.

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. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. 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 :,ImageShackDeviantArt, or whatever - Please do not use Photobucket);

  • 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, October 1st at 9:00am Eastern.
