Enter a often as you like!

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 :,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, March 4th.

    Ok, this is my first contest entry so I’m not sure if I did everything right. Sorry.

    Your link must lead to your entry, not the jump page. Please repair the link by finding your image, left click to open, them copy and paste the link from the address bar into your entry. Please check that the link does, in fact, lead to your entry by clicking on it.

    I need to get most of my stuff off of Photobucket… Anyway, here’s my concept (apologies for how basic it is): Tarrick Hunter, smuggler and assassin.

    Are characters originally created for D&D permissible given the RPG rule? There shouldn’t be any copyright infringement issues with the image, but if you don’t want anything game-related I guess that would be guilt by association.

    It occurs to me that I won’t be awake to see the answer before the contest closes so I’ll just toss my link in here just in case. It’s not as overtly elfy as the other entries but I told myself it doesn’t hurt to enter. 🙂

    Here’s Mireia, the high elf wizard on the run from her dark past.

    Digging through some of my stuff, I found a little thing that I started writing about a near-future Earth invaded by some kind of alien species. Humanity had found allies in the Elves, creatures who were not in fact fae, but a different kind of otherworldly altogether that often visited Earth as a vacation spot. This elf took the Earth name Keitha, since humans had a hard time pronouncing her actual name and usually ended making it sound like a rather vulgar Elven word. A soldier of great skill, she is taller and stronger than humans but loves them greatly. One of her favorite things about our world is our vehicles, although her driving is terrifying as she is used to the flying transportation of her homeworld.
