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, April 1st.

    I am aware that traditional minotaurs have a full bull’s head. My reasoning for not doing so can be found in the full backstory, found at this link:

    I have worked on my original design and this was the result.

    For some reason, post image refuses to name this anything other than this string of numbers, but it should be titled “No Bull Lawyer”

    Well, this took may hours longer than it should have. Feast your eyes on this raging beast!

    Here’s my entry: Rosia Krava.

    In a society that values strength and combat prowess above all, being smaller than one’s contemporaries is often equated with weakness. Rosia has always sought to defy that expectation and assert her place in the pecking order, developing an aggressive personality, a strategic approach to combat, and an aversion to being pushed around. And woe unto him who stands between her and something she wants to eat.

    Minitaur. Cause you know, he’s mini.

  8. Azukanwar says:

    This is one of my favorites out of my three Minotaurs honestly. I call him Cerulian.
