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 :,ImageShack, Deviant Art or whatever);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;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • 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 at 9am Eastern on Sunday, February 11th

    Went for something in the style of Shadowrun.

    What is a story denied an ending? What is a man… or an orc… denied his death?

    I thought it would be neat to have an orc meet a judo master . . .

    Necromancers of other races look down on their orcish brethren, thinking them savage and tribal in comparison to themselves. But none of them would ever want to face one. Despite their ‘primitive’ countenance, they are masters of their craft and their power over the dead is second to none. Foremost among them is Kareesh Axehead, born to the Axehead clan and called to serve the spider-god Urohur, the orcish god of death magic. She proudly wears the tattoo of her calling, the spider emerging from flame, and within her craft she is without peer, orcish or otherwise.
