This week in honour of CDC500, we celebrate HeroMachine and those who enjoy her.
Your challenge this week is to create a character using Heromachine…any kind of character at all. Can be male, female, human, alien, biological, mechanical, hero, villain, mortal, immortal, living or dead (or living dead). Use your skills and imagination to show us your best work.
Special Guest Judge: Jeff Hebert – that’s right – the creator of Heromachine!
Prize: a version of your character by yours truly.
If Jeff thinks the winning entry is worthy. It will be inducted into the HeroMachine Hall of Fame!
Enter as 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 (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like http://www.heromachine.com/forum, Image Shack, 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 files 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 on Sunday, June 27th at 10:00 am Eastern.
I hope y’all enjoy
Hades and Persephone
Omega Woman, the main character of my original story “Allies Tales”.
Each one of these were super fun to make, and my favorite must be Blue Velocity (also my most popular design of them)
I put them all in this one post. Good Luck to everyone who entered!!!
Can Somebody PLEASE HELP ME
I keep getting this error messege when tryn to run the program
SecurityError: Error #2028: Local-with-filesystem SWF file file:///C|/Users/Mike/Downloads/heromachine3.swf cannot access Internet URL http://www.heromachine.com/hm3/serverLoadCharacter.xml.
The Fantastic Death of My Left Sock: Chaos Force
I don’t really have the time or the energy to make anything new, but I haven’t entered her into a contest before.
Don’t try to run the program from your computer. You’ve downloaded the heromachine program, but you should instead run the Flash Player Debugger and input the internet address for the heromachine version you want to use.
Follow the instructions here:
Here’s what it should look like:
Suleman……Thank you so VERY MUCH that finally worked. you are the Man Thank you Thank you

Computer crash before I could finish, so only black and white: https://www.deviantart.com/zaraezyne/art/Caught-177832423
My entry for CDC #500 is one I would like to share with the many creators that I have met using the program. These are images that were either requested or art trades. Some ‘machiners are still around, but many have faded away and there is always hope they will come back to visit. It’s always been a highlight to meet and write to individuals from around the world and share the same passion for character creation. I have learned so much over the years and can only say THANK YOU to Jeff and all the mods for giving us these opportunities to share ideas and bring them to life.
I hope that you and your families stay well and safe.

THE HOUND (an art swap with 1ofthem) – https://www.deviantart.com/steelgeneral2/art/THE-HOUND-1OfThem-869856635
W’lloh aka Willow, one of my Fantasy characters. Made this one a while back, not too long ago, really happy with the background (and the character of course)
Had to come out of semi-retirement for this occasion. I can’t believe there have been 500 contests! Rather than dig through the archives, I decided to just get to machining for the first time in a long while and see what came to me. I’m pretty happy with the results. I’ve got three entries for you guys:
Dissonance – https://www.deviantart.com/dicicatriz/art/Dissonance-883843580
Archangel of the Abyssal Choir – soldiers from the Sphere of Mars who have undergone modifications to be able to wield infernal magics against the Enemy. Dissonance was shut out of Paradise when the dark magics became too deeply interwoven with their essence. They are too tainted to ascend with their brethren. So they remain trapped on Earth, taking out their immortal frustrations on whoever is unlucky enough to cross them.
Samson Steel – https://www.deviantart.com/dicicatriz/art/Samson-Steel-883843600
A turn-of-the-century shiny metal beefcake designed to be an indestructible gentleman superhero. He was never activated and languished for decades in storage. But now that he’s online he’s ready to engage in fisticuffs for justice.
Teenage Meltdown – https://www.deviantart.com/dicicatriz/art/Teenage-Meltdown-883843587
A young man whose posthuman puberty left him a walking nuclear disaster. Instead of mood swings and acne he’s dealing with radiation blasts and a glowing skeleton. Yikes.
Here are some favourites from my collection. Enjoy!
my (maybe) last one
