My Bio
I'm a fan of superheroes, fantasy and such. This logically led me to making stuff with Heromachine.

These are primarily character and costume designs. The first priority is the visuals fitting the character. If the design happens to have some aesthetic value, that's just a bonus. There are a bunch of people out there who are making incredible art with Heromachine, and I tip my hat to them, but that is not what I do.

Using Heromachine rather than drawing things yourself: Cons: Some limitations on what you can and cannot do. Pros: Never having to draw hands, ever.

I commissioned a picture of Lady Tiger! Check it out here: Made by the wonderful Sehloet.

Please, for the love of god, I am not interested in creating sexual content or participating in sexual roleplay on this site. I have no idea how anyone got that idea in the first place. Don't go around sending creepyass horny notes to people, especia...

how are you so good at making sideways facing characters!?


No, seriously. If you look at what I've done, I haven't made many directly forward-facing characters in years. I got bored of doing the same pose over and over, so I tried new things.

There's some tricks that can help, if you want to learn more:

1. Here's how to adjust clothing items to work at an angle.

2. Here's how to use Companion items for clothing and body parts.

3. If you can't find clothing that fits the pose, you can sometimes make it out of smaller pieces. E.g. Magpie's pants are actually made of small "skirts"

Magpie, Halfling Commander

4. Cover up everything that doesn't work. You don't have to get every item or body part just right if you just cover up the messy bits. Use accessories, clothing, hair, whatever you can think of. I covered up a lot of awkward bits when making Medeia, for example.

Yeah, I noticed that drama, but I don't really mind. I wish he had asked first, but some folks are taking this overly seriously.

It's understandable that they would, honestly. These are characters who people put their hearts and souls into; getting angry that they're being stolen is definitely a natural reaction. 

Of course, that's just my take on it. 
Damn man, thank you for the watch! That means a lot :)
Hey, you deserve it.
I'm honestly not sure why I didn't do it before, I had just forgotten to do so.

I honestly don't know if there's anything I can do with Heromachine that you don't already match or do even better. I mean, our styles are obviously very different, but both your technical ability and sheer output impress me a lot. Keep up the good work, buddy.

I haven't felt inspired to finish any Heromachine design in months, so I'm just observing for now, and, again, I really enjoy seeing people push what the software can do, and you do that.
