Sorry, but I am a little reluctant concerning drawing "official" comic characters. Maybe I can help with other things (modern walls etc.)?

(I have not forgotten about the cave walls I offered to do, by the way...)

Same here.


In the States, I believe the law is (or was) that anything within 20% (?) of a copyrighted character likeness, is infringement. I do recall a couple guys in Florida were doing airbrushed Aliens T-shirts, and Fox tore them apart in court.  Anything that looks like Ironman could certainly garner a cease & desists order.

**Yes, I've seen the FRUA modules.

I'll be able to create some icons and smallPics once I'm done with the Golden Age Heroes Icon Set.

While this thread is specifically for icons that I need, all art is welcome.

I currently have a frame set and cursor. I have one wall set (with matching backgrounds).

I have smallpics for all of the listed characters. I think I am only go to put one of each in the pack that I upload, but then link to my site - and other sites/threads that have images. Or do you guys think that we should put more than one of each?

I have no sprites and no big pics.

As far as copyright issues...
I do not have the copyright on any of these characters, nor did I specifically ask permission to sue the likenesses from the copyright holders.
This is fan art. We will not make money on it, nor is it intended to compete with any games/comics/products that the copyright holders currently have in production or plan to put in production.
If they ask me to take down the icons/smallpics, I will. :)

This is fairly standard now. :) I have had my Hero Craft images online for years and years. The artists on deviantArt and various 3D websites put up new images all the time, in fact several people are making a (meager) living selling 3D superhero products that they do not hold the copyright to, calling it "cosplay" and so far have not received a cease and desist order. But our community is not making any money on this, and I think we are fine.

However, I think that every artist/creator should do what they feel comfortable doing, and do not intend the above as any kind of peer pressure, etc. just as an explanation of what I am doing.

I already have icons for a few of the heroes on your list. They are not consistent in style and most lack shadows. Feel free to add shadows, tweak them, or to use them as placeholders until better icons become available.

When you say, "Captain Marvel," I think, "Carol Danvers." If you meant, "Mar-Vell," then we will need another icon.

I totally meant Carol Danvers. :D I had to pick one of her identities, so picked most recent, but I should have put her name in parens.For Giant-man, I mean Hank Pym, and for Green Goblin, I mean Norman Osborne.

These look very good, Manikus. I only somehow expected the Juggernaut to use his head for the attack...  ;)

That should be Rhino.  ;)

[IRRC, Juggernaut is sensitive about his head.]

I am really no expert, but I remembered a cartoon I saw as a child in which he attacked head-first. I understand though that damaging his helmet may not be good for him...

[AFAIK] Nothing ~at all~ hurts him, but if you manage to remove his magic helmet, he becomes mortal.

Since I posted, I guess I should produce an Icon.
It's untested, but I believe it's in the correct format.
(If not, I'll be glad to fix it.)

*I just noticed that Rhino is not on the list.  :(

Edit:  This is a found game sprite that I tweaked with a shadow. In hindsight (examining it) the attack pose is not a powerful hit action... as it should be.
I may be able to draw a better icon myself. It's been awhile since I did comic art; but it might be a neat challenge.
I'll see how it goes.

**But indeed, someone please mention it if the formating is incorrect.

Nice icon, Mechanaut.

This last batch I did was all based on game sprites.

I won't use Rhino in the default release of Hero Craft. However, I plan on doing add-ons and that is largely because I have a bunch of icons in the works (again, based on game sprites) for characters not on my list. I just had to draw a line somewhere and I chose 100, because, well, that is a pretty large number. ;) I am also doing an add-on at some point for Gotham City, for which I am doing a number of original icons.

Concerning Juggernaut, he gets his power from a magic jewel. depending on the writer, he is often physically invulnerable, however, he is highly susceptible to mental attacks, and oh, did I mention his half-brother is Charles Xavier? His helmet functions exactly like Magneto's helmet.
Dinonykos, I recall the cartoon, and I know in the Marvel Superheroes fighting game, he has a head down charge. In the comics, a favorite trick of the X-Men is to get him to do some type of batteriing ram thing and break his helmet so they can mind control him. :) Now we are all kind of experts on Juggernaut.
