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.

  • 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 14th.

    My entry this week: Locomotive Breath, the Musical Automaton!

    Meet the Smith & Covington Co. Melody Generating Steam-Powered Automaton, also known by the affectionate nickname “Locomotive Breath”, a steam-powered android designed to replace the gramophone as the most popular way to listen to music. However, thanks to a strange trick of destiny, this machine gained life, creativity and the dream to become a musician.

    My entry is called “The Steampunk Stallion”. The Industrial Revolution was a time of great change and advancement, but the dark hearts of men still prowl on the weak so our hero does what he feels he must to protect those who call. With his steam powered steed and technological knowledge he patrols Britain protecting the abused and oppressed.

    My original character “Craven” is a steam punk samurai who wears a plague doctor mask and has a sword disguised as an umbrella. he has a prosthetic mechanized arm that has many gadgets such as smoke bombs, poison darts and a 360 rotating wrist joint that lets him use his hand like a drill. he is a legendary samurai whose feats of greatness echo well into the future where a ninja assassin has idolized him and donned his identity as his own to become cyber punk “Craven the second”

    The airship The Fighting Fish had the ancient weapon in sight. The pirates had been chasing it for so long. Now if only the storm would hold out long enough this time for them to catch it.

    Originally the color scheme was much brighter but my boyfriend reminded me that steampunk has those muted Victorian colors.

    Hi, new to the boards. Hope I posted this right. If not, let me know. 🙂
