    Am using HeroMachine 2.5 and have come up with the following:

    You can load it up with the code in the spoiler box below.

    It’s the chin, neck, and mouth that I’m finding to generally be unsatisfactory. The neck looks too exposed in general, like it’s an enormous weak spot in the armor. The chin and mouth look similarly exposed, and there don’t seem to be any mouth or beard graphics that lend themselves to impersonating a helmet’s ‘mouth’ audio emitter thingy. I matched the skin color of the body to the armor, and it works for camouflaging some gaps in the arms and stomach as looking like they’re part of the armor, but the illusion isn’t working for the chin, neck, and mouth. I don’t mind moving away from the helmet that’s currently equipped, though I would prefer to avoid the master chief and storm trooper helmets. Any tips for making the armor look more ‘sealed?’ Or about the portrait in general? Edit: the red I’m using is custom by the way, it’s 40 red, 1 green, 1 blue.

    If you post a picture of the character it would make it easier for us to help.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve now uploaded it as a pdf via the forum, but I’m not sure where the download link is in my post?

    Trying again, let’s see if it shows up here?

    Edit: ugh, nope. It’s showing up when I look at my existing file uploads. Though how would I save it as a jpeg instead of a PDF? To get the PDF I’m hitting print, and printing it to Foxit, which prompts me to save it as a pdf with no other options.

    what Operating system are you using ? Windows, OSX, or Linux ?

    ok, I haven’t used windows 8, however assuming they didn’t change everything I will assume that taking a screen shoot is the same until told otherwise. So what you do is with Heromachine loaded and your hero on screen hit the Print Screen Button on your keyboard. This will take a picture of everything currently on your monitor’s screen and store it on your clipboard. Next open you photo editing software of chooice. For this I just use MS Paint. Once you have your photo editing software loaded simply paste the image you screen captured/Copied from HeroMachine into Paint ( or your software of choice ). Crop it to get rid of anything you do not want showing and then go to file and click “Save As” change the file format to either jpg, jpeg, or png

    Here is what I would do. The item covering the neck was in “Neckwear” and the mask was in “Mask”. Then add the rest of the headgear that you want over it.
