CDC #387 – Trick or Treat!

It’s Halloween week!!!

Your Character Design Challenge thus week is to use HM3 to create a truly frightening Halloween costume. It can be a classic movie monster like Dracula or the Wolf Man or a completely original character. It can be for an adult or for a child. Just have fun

The winner this week will receive a HeroMachine rendering of my version of their winning entry.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

You may enter up to three times.

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 noon Eastern on Monday, November 5th.

    My entry this week is a Cowboy Ghost!

    This year, Little Timmy couldn’t decide between dressing up as a ghost or a cowboy, so he thought: why not both?

    Sheriff Timmy was the fastest gun in the west… but unfortunately he wasn’t fast enough to dodge the indian arrow that took his life. Now he haunts the suburban streets demanding candy every Halloween.

    The blurb on how it came to be was too short to submit as another ‘Artist’s Foibles’ anyway . . .
