ARTEMIS

 

I love Heromachine, I use it as a base for some of the poser superheroines I make.. didn't know there was a 'purchasable' version.. it got extra bells and whistles? :confused:

Here is my character Ranger, the first Champions character I ever built way back in 1982 (Although this version of his powered armor dates from around 1986) I now use him as a solo NPC superhero in my campaign. As recently redesigned for 5th Edition using Hero Designer (I never built a 4th Edition version of Ranger because I retired him in 1987) he's 475 points of a$$-whooping with an 80 STR, 16d6EB (boostable to 24d6 for one shot), 52 PD & 52 ED, most of it Hardened. He's got 125 XP, and is heavy on the hard sciences (He's a physicist in his Secret ID.)

I'm seeing lots of interesting Poser works on this thread. Pretty cool. Someone should package of form of Poser for making superhero characters.

 

Are you guys editing the texture maps yourselves?

Well, this is highly pirated, but since Mr. Vimes asked me to post it... this original came from comicworldnews.com, from an issue of crossgen's Negation comic. Photoshopped into my character Corona...

 

Well, Photopaint-ed into Corona. I don't like Photoshop.

Fusion

 

My turn. Here's a scan of a piece I commissioned in B&W from a college buddy back in the 80's. I added the color later in pencil.

Fusion is a flamboyant, camera-friendly gloryhound. She saves End until a newscrew arrives and then really pours it on. (I used to drive the GM nuts checking what arcs of the battlefield the cameras were covering.)

Dynamo

 

...and another from the same B&W artist (Dave Roberson) of my evolving powered armor character, Dynamo (called Sentinel back then). I've misplaced my colorized version, so it may be time to haul out the colored pencils again.

Masq

 

Here is a pic from a friend of mine who since doing this picture has done some stuff for White Wolf and such. Here is a link to his art db on Pen and Paper.

 

Anyway...here is the sketch he did for a NPC called Masq... :D

I use the Hero Character Template for the pose.

I then modify it with Photoshop Elements.

I use the textures that exist in Photoshop Elements, but I do tweak the color gradient to get what I want.

 

Many useful tools in Photoshop Elements.

Yeah, same here (except I use Corel Photopaint instead of Adobe Photoshop). I have zero artistic talent (as far as drawing goes), so I must manipulate existing art to create any personal images. I use the models from the character template collection and then layer different fills onto the model, merging them with different styles... Color Burn being the one that seems to work best for keeping the detail beneath the solid fill.

Try using layers of "multiply" if your software has that setting ont he paint tool. I use that one almost exclusively.

 

I used to have those character templates.... I appear to have lost them, though :( That's one reason why I hate electronic purchases like that....if it were an actual book, I'd have it for 2 decades and never not know where it was.

The Dodge and Burn tools from PS are what I use as well. If usually select areas I want to manipulate and then adjust the color variations, smudge, a few filters and dodge and burn usually finsih the job.

Two words:

CD Burner

 

I burned that, Herodesigner and all the HD packages. If I make an electronic purchase it's going to be backed up... probably twice.

Actually, I have some better techniques to keep the detail. If you want to exchange notes, just email me. (8^D)
