CDC #407 – Family Portraits

So first a little housekeeping…I will be very busy with work until April 12th opening two musicals - “The House of Martin Guerre” and “Chelsea Sunrise”. As a result, I have to suspend the CDC prizes until CDC 410. I really enjoy doing them, but I will just not have time to do them justice.

So on to this week’s challenge. In he spirit of The Addams Family. Your challenge is to create a family portrait of a seriously scary or creepy family. Maybe it is a family of Zombies, or Steampunk robots. Just be creative and have fun

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 9am Eastern on Sunday, March 31st.

    My entry this week is simply titled “Monster Family”. That’s all haha.

    So I haven’t finished the submission I want to make because I’m having a few issues. Loading right hand standard makes the item selection ui grey and doesn’t allow me to add any item in that category. Additionally, loading a previous character I want for the family isn’t working either. It gets stuck at a 100% of some item (presumably right hand standard).
    Also, unrelated, but there comes a point where my memory doesn’t seem to handle having that many items and movement and selection slows down so much. I was wondering if there was any obvious fix to this, since it doesn’t take that many items to start slowing down the performance.

    Here’s as close to what I wanted that I could get

    I call them The Skuller Family. The two figures in frame are the paternal Grand Parents of the Family. I might post another thing with the individual pieces later on this morning, but for now I’m calling this my actual entry.
