HeroMachine 3 Incredibles Logo Tutorial
A while back, Truckgbad asked how I used HeroMachine to create the logos in my The Incredibles fan art. I created this quick tutorial but hadn't gotten around to posting it until now. I hope it serves as a decent example of how to build up figures using shapes and masking. (Sorry it took so long, Truckgbad.)

The Incredibles
After Seeing The Incredibles 2, I decided to update my HeroMachine version of him. It came out good enough that I decided to try a matching Elastigirl. People liked that and started asking for me to create the rest of the family. And so, here they are along with Edna Mode and Frozone.

As usual with my fan art, I should note that while I think fan art is legitimate, the creators of the tools I use do not necessarily encourage or support their use for that purpose, and I certainly don't intend to abuse anyone's intellectual property.

Of Supermen and Mice (updated Superman analogues)
Like I said a few weeks back… no sooner do I finish one version of this montage, than someone suggests yet another character that belongs in it.  This version adds two more, Utopian suggested by MalchiorOfNol and Strong Man suggested by Al-Ocramed. Al-Ocramed also suggested a few others, who didn't seem to be quite Superman analogues, at least by my criteria, having powers or origins that seemed quite distinct. Largely, I've tried to exclude characters whose powers include major ones not shared by Superman, such as the Martian Manhunter's shape-shifting, invisibility, intangibility and so on. I've also left out sidekicks and female versions of male analogues. I do include Good Girl from Black AF, because she is her world's first and most powerful superhero is clearly the equivalent of Superman.

So, what do I mean by "Superman analogue". Here's what I've said in each of these images:

Every superhero world has at least one “Superman analogue”, a character with powers and abilities not only far beyond those of mortal men, but ones matching that of the original superhero, Superman, who “can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands” and is “faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!” This picture collects images of as many of them as I can find, all created with—Shh! Don’t tell Jeff!—the wonderful Heromachine 3 app.

If you know any that I’m missing please let me know. 

I am not including youthful and female equivalents. I may create a separate collection of such characters. I’ve also left out all of the many super pets, but I have included the three mouse Superman analogues, because “Of supermice and Supermen” is such a cool throw away line.

Top Row: Ultiman, Venture, Titan, Astonishman, Homelander, Superior, Icon, Prime, Mighty Man; 

Second Row: Hugo Danner, Iron Munro, Utopian, Sentry, Mr. Majestic, Supreme, The Plutonian, Wonderman (Fox), Omniman, Master Man;

Third Row: Miracleman, Victor, Blue Marvel, Apollo, Samaritan, Ultraman, Gladiator, Paragon (my own creation), Sun God, Alpha One;

Bottom Row: Good Girl, Mr. Incredible, Ace Hart,  Hyperion, Mon-El, Superman, Bizarro, Captain Marvel/Shazam,Strong Man, Sovereign; 

Mice: Mighty Mouse + Pearl Pureheart, Super Mouse, Atomic Mouse.

Just a reminder: None of these characters would exist if it wasn't for Superman, that strange visitor from another planet, who fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way. Heroism is what made him an icon. 

As ever, I created all of these homages to Superman and his many analogues without the consent or approval of anyone associated with the tools that I used to do the job. Still, you know where thanks for the existence and functionality of those tools go

Bat-Man Origins, Rev 5
This is the fifth revision of "Bat-Man Origins", illustrating what I've been learning about the pulp and comic strip influences that led to the iconic Batman, created by Bob Kane, and Bill Finger (center). in addition to the characters in the Rev 4 version, I've added the original Black Bat and characters that Kane and Finger mentioned as influences: Douglas Fairbanks' Zorro, the Phantom, and the Bat from the 1926 movie "The Bat" and its 1930 talkie remake "The Bat Whispers".

There are enough characters in the image now, that I did a whole page giving their histories with illustrations and links to other sources over on Facebook.

Created with HeroMachine and Photoshop, the creators of which did not approve of my using their software for this fan art project. I believe that my use of these characters to illustrate theories of the literary influences in early 20th century pulp and comics is fair use. If you hold intellectual property rights to one of these characters and disagree, please let me know.

If you have anything to contribute on the influences leading to the first Finger/Kane Bat-Man, please let me know. A comment here is sufficient.

Supermen + Mice (Superman analogues, yet again)
No sooner do I finish one version of this montage, than someone suggests yet another character that belongs in it.  This version adds two more, one from the British Golden Age, and one introduced this month. Ace Hart was a British superhero, first published in 1948, a character who resembles Superman, nuclear heroes like Captain Atom, and spacemen like Buck Rogers. I'm including him both here and in the next version of my Atomic Heroes image. I've also add Good Girl from Black Mask Studio's Black [AF]: America's Sweetheart. While in the Black universe, there have been blacks with superpowers for many many years, Good Girl is her world's first costumed superheroes, with the powers of a Superman analogue. In general, I haven't included Supergirl and her many analogues in this image because, like Supergirl, they are largely female versions or sidekicks of primary male heroes. Good Girl, though, being her world's first and most powerful superhero is clearly the equivalent of Superman.

So, what do I mean by "Superman analogue". Here's what I've said n each of these images:

Every superhero world has at least one “Superman analogue”, a character with powers and abilities not only far beyond those of mortal men, but ones matching that of the original superhero, Superman, who “can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands” and is “faster than a speeding bullet!

Hey it's Cody. I've created a Mr. Incredible in HM3 with his blue and black suit. I also used your tutorial to put the Incredibles logo in the background. As long as I tag you in the description and say that it was your logo and stuff, would you mind if I uploaded it?

I'm really looking forward to going through your covers when I find the time. Wait that sounds totally wrong... So how about those sports teams...

Unintentional jokes aside, your HM cover work looks very well done.

I may be slow about getting around to it as I've had the highly talented MadJack-S in my watch list for some time now and haven't taken the time to shower him with :+fav:s

Thanks. Glad you've enjoy the ones you've seen enough to be coming back for more. One of the images in my HM3 Covers folder is "(Almost) all of my HeroMachine covers" and it shows quite a few that aren't actually here in DeviantArt if there are some that you'd like to see full size, let me know. 

Also note that there are more in the "Fan Art" like my T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, Astro City, and Superman covers. Generally, if I didn't create the characters or they aren't in the public domain, I shuffle them off to Fan Art.

You're welcome. Your human proportion images got me playing with HeroMachine proportions and visualizing some of the characters from my old fantasy role playing game campaign.

I'm glad my images were useful. Now, you've got me interested in HeroMachine. I didn't know it existed until now. Thank you very much.

By the way, if you enjoy erotic/romantic novels, you can have a look at my gallery and if you like it enough, add me to your watch list.
I am posting parts of an erotic novel I am writting and, recently, have posted the whole book on MY PATREON for free :) (Smile)
