C.R.A.S.H. Fanart

 Well, I'm pleased to say that I've actually gotten some fans. And some of them happen to be ar-teests! Have a look at some C.R.A.S.H. readers' renditions of their favorite characters.

You'll notice that I've marked some of the fanart below as being an entry or winner of my annual Fanart Contest and Generated Fanart Contest. Every year I hold a fanart contest from February 19th through May 19th. You can find the rules for the contest right here. You'll also notice that some artists gave me art for Secret Santas - an art trade that happens every year for members of the 910CMX forums, which my comic happens to have its own thread in.

If you want to send me fanart, please send it to heroesofcrash@yahoo.com with the "HoC Fanart" as the e-mail subject (Unless it's for the fanart contests, in which case give it the appropriate subject as listed in the contest rules). Please DO NOT link to artwork on DeviantArt; that site's full of way too many bugs.  Also, please note that I've given every art piece its own title to make it easier to browse this page and differentiate between artists covering the same subject (And because I like writing puns into titles).

3...2...1... FIGHT! by Thereisnosaurus

This 2010 Fanart Contest Winner was created by fellow 910CMX artist Thereisnosaurus, who created the totally awesome webcomic Hero In Training. Here, Anne - a formidable fighter from his comic - tests her mettle against C.R.A.S.H.'s resident amazon. Who will win?

15 Years by MaroonDrops

Maroon is no stranger to excellent HoC fan art.  She created two versions of the same piece - one with text and one without text - celebrating my comic's 15th anniversary by highlighting several memorable scenes from its history.  With beautiful artwork and a clear appreciation for the comic's stories, it's no wonder that this piece was the 2021 Fanart Contest Winner.

Appropriate...? by Ecchi Kitty

Someone by the name of Ecchi Kitty sent me this 2008 Fanart Contest Entry. I felt that it teeters on the edge of what is appropriate for this comic, but in the end I decided it was okay to be posted. Good thing this picture is non-canonical... as the guy talking to Titanium Maiden might be in need of some medical attention, soon.

Artistical Cosmical Fanart by Artistical Cosmical

This may seem like a simple sketch, but it means far more to me than that... This happens to be the FIRST HoC fanart EVER (Not counting commissions). As an artist, getting this picture was a big milestone for me. Thanks, AC! By the way, folks, he says he's willing to do requests for free, so if you'd like to make a request, send him an e-mail at mousatoure@yahoo.com

Awesome Allosaurus by Pippi

In the storyline Fight at the Museum, Dino-Mo and her friends fear that the psychotic Dr. Ludicrous is gonna bring an allosaurus to life. He didn't... a fact that our heroes find comforting. Pippi, on the other hand, being a fan of dinosaurs, couldn't help but wonder... what if he HAD brought the prehistoric beast back from the dead? Consider this picture - a 2011 Fanart Contest Winner - to be Pippi's rewrite with a raucous, rowdy, roaring, revived reptile!

Band Aid Boy's Belt Boy Birthday Bandage by Bryan

This 2008 Generated Fanart Contest Entry was done by a good friend of mine from college, named Bryan. Apparently, this picture has something to do with a character of his known as "Band Aid Boy". Don't be surprised if my rendition of this silly character winds up as a part of my comic, at least making a cameo. He'll probably be in the nurse's office...

Belt Boy and Caped Cod by Shaney

Shaney, creator of Heroes of the World and Beyond (Or HOTWAB for short), decided that he would draw Belt Boy along with Caped Cod for my 2019 Fanart Contest.  I've gotten more than a few pictures of Belt Boy, but Caped Cod is not as frequent a subject, and it's refreshing to see these two together.
Belt Boy and Cool Blurred Background by Shaney

Shaney also entered my 2020 Fanart Contest.  While Caped Cod is no longer present like in the previous year's entry, Belt Boy is looking a lot slicker, with more realistic proportions, shading, and a cool background that make him look like he's rushing to the rescue.  A true artist is constantly improving themself, and Shaney exemplifies this wonderfully.  I can only imagine what awesome art he'll come up with next!

Belt Boy Boasts a Silver Age-Inspired Style by Ken Bailey

A few months after winning my 2018 Birthday Fanart Contest with his picture of Titanium Maiden, Ken Bailey drew another of my main characters: Belt Boy. While he's now showing off a cool, retro look, Belt Boy is still very much himself. Just look at that boyish grin of his!

Belt Boy Ready for Action by Asuchan, as Comissioned by The_Kirby

For the 2013 edition of the 910CMX Forums annual Secret Santa, my giftee was The_Kirby. As a gift to me, he got Asuchan - the artist of the sadly-on-hiatus-but-very-awesome 910CMX webcomic Ruby Thursday - to draw this breathtakingly awesome picture of Belt Boy for me. He looks like he stepped out of a real animated series! Perhaps someday, HoC the Animated Series could be a real thing... *Knock on wood*!

  Blorbo Cannon by Twentifour_hour

I didn't know what a "blorbo" was before I received this fan art, but apparently it means "a celebrity or fictional character of whom one is very fond."  Twentifour_hour has bestowed the title of "blorbo" upon Cannon.  I think it's pretty safe to say that Cannon appreciates the term of affection... as well as how dashing he looks in this picture!

B.O.N.N.I.E.B.O.T. by TheSlugCar

B.O.N.N.I.E. doesn't have a physical form, and exists as an AI inside Belt Boy's belt. But as an entry for my 2017 Fanart Contest, TheSlugCar wondered, what if she took over some Necrobot hardware to become a B.O.N.N.I.E.-B.O.T. (Belt Operation Network Neohuman with Inexplicable Emotions Battling Offline Threats)? I can tell you right now, Cannon would not be happy staring up at a lovestruck battle robot!

Cannon 2.0 by YouWillNeverKnow

Whoa... Cannon's gotten an upgrade! This is the 2010 Generated Fanart Contest Winner, which was done by YouWillNeverKnow using HeroCreator. Our favorite wisecrack-spouting superhero wishes that this upgrade would happen in the comic, but sorry... it's not in the comic's canon, Cannon. *Rimshot*

Cannon Leap by BigNoseBug

When Twitter had a Drawn In My Style hashtag, artists all over the net adapted other people's OCs (That's "Original Characters", for those who don't know) into their own artistic style. Cannon wound up getting a makeover by an artist with the Twitter handle "BigNoseBug", who happens to be a storyboard artist for Thundercats! He looks so cheerful and wholesome... of course, his friends and classmates know better!

Capestagram by Maroon Drops

Despite some tough competition, there was no doubt in my mind that this was the 2019 Fanart Contest Winner.  In addition to being a fantastic drawing of Belt Boy and Miss Sunflower, as well as creating a great social media parody app for superheroes, the text at the bottom of the screen perfectly nails Belt Boy's personality, and that was the true clincher for me.

Carnival Game Cannon by Uber

Carnival games don't always play fair. But - despite being a good guy - neither does Cannon. This is how Cannon got banned from the Tri-County Fair and Seatbelt Awareness Jamboree. Well, that and because of what is now known as "The Great Cotton Candy Incident". Uber did this picture as his submission for my 2013 Fanart Contest.

Cast of C.R.A.S.H. by The Winthrop Family

This piece of artwork unofficially tied for first place with my 2013 Fanart Contest Winner. Why unofficially? Because it was done by none other than my very own family! My parents and sister got my comic's cast pictures blown up, printed on photo-quality paper, glued to a poster, and framed as a birthday present to me. While easily one of the best bits of fanart I've ever gotten, I couldn't allow my family to be eligible for prizes in the interest of fairness, but I still couldn't resist giving them props for this great picture. The only sad thing about it is that there wasn't any room for the ultimate neglected superhero, Gelatin Boy. Poor GB...

Chibis of C.R.A.S.H. by MaroonDrops

This was the 2020 Generated Fanart Contest winner, featuring chibi-style versions of Belt Boy, Cannon, Titanium Maiden, and Enticia.  While I'm sure Titanium Maiden would enjoy being small and adorable, I suspect Cannon wouldn't enjoy being even shorter than usual (plus it's even harder for him to hit on girls and be taken seriously when he looks like a toy).
Collective Hero Titanium Maiden by Richard Macrae

The creator of the webcomic Silverback challenged himself to do some fan art of at least one character from every comic in the Collective of Heroes.  His choice for my comic was none other than Titanium Maiden.  He really nailed her physique, and the way that her bracelets shine and the rubble stirs up dust... just *chef's kiss*.  While this picture was part of a series, I considered it a 2021 Fanart Contest Entry because he created it while my contest was on.

ConGRADulations by CD Rudd

CD Rudd does the 910CMX webcomic SailorSun.org, and regularly has characters from the other comics making cameos... including mine. This picture was the last panel from one of his comics - congratulating SailorSun character Honey on her graduation - and he made it into a desktop, as well as a 2012 Fanart Contest Entry. Strangely enough, this was one of two entries I got this year that referred to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Cosmical Comic by Artistical Cosmical

This comic was done by Artistical Cosmical, the same guy who created the aforementioned first piece of HoC fanart. It helped me when I needed a filler in a pinch. Seriously, this guy rocks out loud. Thanks, man!

CRASH Curtain by Ed Gedeon

Apparently, this picture is an homage to an old Carol Burnett skit, which parodied Gone with the Wind.  Both of those are a bit before my time, so I probably don't grasp the full extent of the humor, but I get the main joke, and the art is pretty great.  Definitely appreciated as an entry for my 2023 Fanart Contest.

Destrucity Damsel by YouWillNeverKnow

Talk about a deep cut!  Destrucity Damsel was a character I'd created in the 910CMX Forums WAAAAAAAY back in 2011, in which I'd have different forumers suggest traits for a superhero, and I'd combine them all together.  Destrucity Damsel was the result.  YWNK decided to make her into an avatar, becoming my 2023 Fan Avatar Contest Winner!

  Dinoicia by TheSlugCar

It's not my birthday without fan art from TheSlugCar, and their 2022 Fanart Contest Entry features Dino-Mo and Enticia in a simplified, toony form.  Kinda reminds me of Homestar Runner for some reason.

Energy Girl and Titanium Maiden by Ken Bailey

As the creator of the beefy Energy Girl, Ken Bailey couldn't resist drawing her alongside my own muscular heroine, Titanium Maiden. This impressive drawing wound up being my 2018 Fanart Contest Winner! TM can be pretty self-conscious about her appearance, but when it comes to Cannon and loudmouths like him, she's not gonna take any guff!

Enticia's Backstory by MaroonDrops

While MaroonDrops was ineligible to enter my birthday contest's Traditional category in 2020 (having won in that category the previous year), she still wanted to send me some fan art for my birthday, and so she sent this gorgeous picture based on the events of my Confessions of a Teenage Superhero storyline I'd revealed thus far.  Not only is Enticia getting some love, but this is the first traditional fanart to depict, Daisy, Shadowy Sentinel, Mick, Lana, and Mags.
FantaSTICK Titanium Maiden by Michael VanSlyke

If you're wondering why I emphasized the word "Stick" in the title, it's because this entry for my 2020 Fanart Contest is drawn by the artist behind Nite Stick - another funny, toony webcomic that's in the Collective of Heroes.  TM's pose shows off her physique and her cutesy side by having her flex her bicep, while standing on one foot not unlike a ballerina.
Fashionable Team Dino-Mo by YouWillNeverKnow

It's not my birthday without an art submission from YouWillNeverKnow!  This entry was a 2021 Generated Fanart Contest Winner, featuring Dino-Mo, Dodge, Sugar Rush and Gelatin Boy wearing new outfits.  The girls seem pleased with their new threads, but the boys...?  Not so much.   I don't know what Gelatin Boy is complaining about; Hawaiian shirts always look cool, and only a confident man wears a hat like that.

FrozenChicken Fanart by FrozenChicken

Here's some Secret Santa fanart I received from 910CMX Forumer FrozenChicken. I found the festive fanart from my favorite frozen fowl to be fabulous, funny, and fantastic! Man, I love aliteration... LOVE it!

Gaia Greats by Gill

Gill is one of my best friends, and the 2011 Generated Fanart Contest Winner (It wasn't a conflict of interest, folks; she was the only entrant in that category. So stop your whinin'!). She made not one, but SIX pictures from an imitation Gaia generator. Check out the awesome pictures she made of Belt Boy, Titanium Maiden, Cannon, and Sugar Rush. She also did a self-portrait and a picture of yours truly! Sweet!

Geometric Heroes by YouWillNeverKnow

This peculiar art piece reminds me of that one scene in Inside Out... you know the one where Joy, Sadness, and Bing Bong get turned into increasingly simple, geometric shapes?  Well, YWNK made geometric versions of Belt Boy, Titanium Maiden, Cannon, and Destrucity Damsel (Mentioned earlier on this page) for my 2023 Fanart Contest.  Looks like it would make a pretty cool mosaic, dontcha think?

Have a C.R.A.S.H.-tastic Christmas by Desperado

At the Wotch forums during the holidays, they have a Secret Santa art exchange, in which everyone draws art for another person involved in the exchange. I got some fanart of my characters from Jonathan Urquhart, the artist behind the webcomic Super Teen Angst. I've always been a super-festive sap for the holidays, and in this picture, it seems that our heroes are, too! It seems the fact that Cannon is Jewish hasn't kept him from swiping one of Belt Boy's candy canes... heh heh! I may need to use the term "C.R.A.S.H.-tastic" in the future sometime; it has a nice ring to it!

Hero(es of C.R.A.S.H.)Forge by YWNK

YWNK is such a frequent contributor to my Generated Fanart Contest, that unfortunately, I was unable to accept their 2022 birthday fanart submission, since they won the previous year (And the rules are that no one can win two years in a row).  Still, seeing Belt Boy, Cannon, TM, and even Caped Cod in potentially-sculptable 3D from HeroForge looks too good for me NOT to share.

Heroes of Ponyville by YouWillNeverKnow

The Bronies have officially invaded HoC, folks. The 2012 Generated Fanart Contest Winner sent in one of two submissions for my 2012 Fanart Contest that featured My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (The other was CD Rudd's "ConGRADulations"... see above). This generated image featured my main three heroes as ponies from the tv show - TM as a normal (If rather large) pony, Cannon as a pegasus, and Belt Boy as a unicorn. Somehow, I don't see them striking fear into the heart of criminals in this form...

HoC RPFG Fight Team by YouWillNeverKnow

YWNK was ambitious during my 2018 Fanart Contest, submitting art for both categories, and that ambition paid off, with one entry being a runner up, and this entry being the 2018 Generated Fanart Contest Winner! This impressive entry features all ten of my main and secondary student heroes, reimagined as RPG heroes!

Indestructible...? by Pippi

I was surprised and honored to receive this excellent bit of fanart from 910CMX forumer Pippi. Her artistic skills are no secret to the forumers (If you join the forums, I recommend checking out her gallery!). Anyhoo, in this picture, Titanium Maiden and Belt Boy prove that they don't make evil robot armies the way they used to anymore...!

Insanity by Daniel

In 2012, Tselsebar - creator and artist for The Wotch: Cheer! - won the fanart contest with a disturbing-yet-hilarious comic (See the piece entitled "Revelations" below). In 2013, Tselsebar temporarily handed the artistic reigns of his comic over to Daniel, and so it seems appropriate that the comic's new artist became the 2013 Fanart Contest Winner after submitting an equally disturbing-yet-hilarious comic. Of course, could we expect anything less than total insanity when Dr. Ludicrous and Gertrude get involved?

It's a Wonderful Day for Pie by Elijah Sight

Admittedly, it's not the artist, but yours truly who's responsible for titling most of these fanart pictures. I couldn't help but think of a certain Family Guy song when looking over this picture by Elijah Sight, a nother Wotch forumer who produced this piece of art shortly after becoming a fan of my comic. I'm not sure why Belt Boy's holding a pie (I'm more of a cake person, myself)... perhaps it's his latest method of semi-cartoonish, nonviolent weaponry? If so, it looks like whoever's viewing the picture better duck! Here's pie in your eye!

Jeannie Bottle Cameo by CD Rudd

I've already mentioned how Belt Boy and TM have made cameo appearances in CD Rudd's comic SailorSun.org on an occasion or two. Well, CD's got another comic, I Dream of Jeannie Bottle, and Belt Boy's made a cameo appearance there, too. Don't think that Belt Boy's a "no-brainer" because of the context of this strip; Belt Boy told me that he had simply gone into a zen-like trance after waiting in line at the post-office for so long. I counted this cameo as a submission for my 2013 Fanart Contest.

Jojo Pose TM by MaroonDrops

In addition to doing the Capestagram picture above, MaroonDrops decided to take a crack at everyone's favorite amazon, Titanium Maiden.  From what I understand, this picture was inspired by Jojo's Bizarre Adventure... which I've never gotten around to watching.  Don't give me that look; I can't binge-watch a new series and get my comic done on time each week!

Judge Cannon by Daniel

I got to meet the artist in person at KaVention 2009. Daniel was a bit dismayed that I'd never seen the movie Judge Dredd, and thus the pop-culture reference is a bit over my head, but I'm nonetheless impressed by the artwork. This is another armor upgrade that Cannon wishes was real. Don't be bummed, Cannon. As a superhero, you're still "the law", in a sense.

Jurassic Joy by Jurassic-Gothic

With a name like Jurassic-Gothic, you'd think that his first picture would be of Dino-Mo, but nope! Y'see, some time ago, I made a request on the Wotch forums to get a bit of fanart, and Jurassic-Gothic responded. Here's a drawing of my characters in a more realistic light. I really like how he made Cannon's armor look; it's awesome!

Magical Gift by Dan Butcher

The first Secret Santa gift I got as a member of the Collective of Heroes webcomic community, this picture by Dan Butcher (creator of the webcomic Vanguard) features Titanium Maiden opening a curious and apparently magical box.  What's inside?  Who knows?  You may notice Stan Lee on the packaging; after the late Stan Lee's passing in 2018, everyone inserted him into their Secret Santa pictures for that year.
Main Trio by Corey Kramer

Fellow Collective of Heroes artist (and fellow Weird Al fan) Corey Kramer decided to draw Belt Boy, Cannon, and Titanium Maiden in the style of his webcomic, Wonder Weenies for my 2020 Fanart Contest.  My characters seem very compatible with his style, as we both take a toony, angular approach to drawing characters.  My personal favorite part of this drawing may be Belt Boy's goofy, "Dudley Do-Right"-style grin, which fits his personality like a glove.

Minecraft Crack Shot by OakDruidDude

I'm one of the last few people in the world who have yet to play Minecraft, although I really want to! This 2013 Generated Fanart Contest Winner makes me want to play it all the more; who wouldn't want to play through the game as C.R.A.S.H.'s most famous wise-cracking crack-shot? If you love the game (Or if you're a Creeper or Zombie who needs to know who to stay away from!), you can check out OakDruidDude's submission by clicking on any one of these six links. Ender Dragon, beware; the Heroes of C.R.A.S.H. are on your pixelated tail!

Movie Posters by TheSlugCar

It's not officially my birthday unless TheSlugCar sends me some fan art!  Easily one of my most dedicated fans, their annual gift for the 2019 Fanart Contest was a trio of movie poster designs based on my heroes' outfits.  I like the simplified, streamlined design they used here, breaking down my characters into iconic symbols.  But in all honesty, I'd rather see my comic become a cartoon series than a movie; it IS the Saturday Morning webcomic, after all!

Multimedia Mix by TheSlugCar

In 2011, Gill wasn't the only fanart contest entrant who had a whopping six entries. TheSlugCar had just as many in the regular fanart category, and each one was in a different medium! His 2011 Fanart Contest Entries included a painted Caped Cod, an origami Dino-Mo, a drawing of evil versions of our main heroes, a rather sandy Gelatin Boy, a beaded B.O.N.N.I.E., and a rewrite of a comic I'd previously made. That's a whole lotta fanart!

Necros and Supreme Master by TheSlugCar

Between this and the Multimedia Mix above, TheSlugCar has sent me the most fan art of any HoC fan. So it's no suprise that TSC became the 2016 Generated Fanart Contest Winner after all that dedication! These generated avatars re-imagine Necros and suggest what the shadow-cloaked Supreme Master might look like. If you're playing a video game and you spy either of these guys gunning for you, look out! You don't mess with either of these villains!

No Waste of Paper by ThePaperWaster

"The Paper Waster" isn't the name of a Captain Planet villain... but the name of an artist. And not just any artist; the artist who just happened to be the 2008 Fanart Contest Winner! He actually submitted TWO pieces of art, but he didn't need the second one, as the first was good enough to win the prize. But check 'em both out; they're great pictures of Belt Boy and Cannon. Congrats, dude!

Pixel Cannon and Pixel Cannon 2 by 73r4u1

These were 2009 and 2011 Fanart Contest Entries, the latter being an updated version of the former. No, this isn't generated fanart; 73r4u1 actually took the time to draw these pictures of Cannon in pixelated form. That's artistic dedication you can't help but appreciate.

Pixie Ranger HoC by CD Rudd

CD Rudd has a few comics under his belt, including the space adventure Pixie Rangers.  In this 2021 Fanart Contest Entry, he drew my heroes as they would appear in his comic.  Titanium Maiden and Cannon both seem wary, but Belt Boy seems excited to explore space with cool new technology.  His enthusiasm might fade, however, once he realizes he's not wearing his belt...
POWerful Right Hook by Anna Frohling

The creator of the webcomic Black Hole Badger, Anna has drawn Belt Boy ready to sock evil square in the jaw, with some onomatopoeia worthy of a superhero comic (or an Adam West Batman episode).  I like how the rosy-colored shading makes Belt Boy's whole look seem to pop out at you... of course, given that he's delivering a punch, it's a good thing he isn't actually popping out at you!  A worthy 2020 Fanart Contest entry, indeed!

Raptor Girl by Daniel

Some of you may know that dinosaurs are the ancestors of today's birds. What fewer of you may know is that many scientists believe that dinos may even have had feathers, including the mighty tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptor. I've always been tempted to incorporate that into one of Dino-Mo's designs, but never have. Well, Daniel did it for me as one of his two submissions to my 2013 Fanart Contest, and I've gotta say, it's a good look for Dino-Mo.

Retro Game Parodies by Marc Moore

I've always wanted to put my heroes in a retro-style video game... although Marc seems to have taken that idea in a slightly different direction than what I've envisioned.  Marc's placed my characters onto the covers of classic NES, Game Boy, and Arcade games!  Not gonna lie; Cod Icarus looks like it could be fun!

Revelations by Tselsebar

Tselsebar - the guy responsible for the 910CMX webcomic The Wotch: Cheer! - sent in this disturbing-but-hilarious picture and became the 2012 Fanart Contest Winner as a result. I gotta admit... I expected, eventually, to get some fanart featuring one of my characters depicted in a "cheesecakey" sort of light... but I never would've guessed that the character used here would be the first...! By the way, I LOVE the hilarious faces Enticia makes in this picture!

SailorSun Dot Org Crossover by CD Rudd

After CD has drawn me and my characters into his comics on several occasions, in 2017 he decided to do a trio of pictures, featuring my characters interacting with his. I declared him the 2017 Fanart Contest Winner for his depictions of my main trio hanging out with Bay, Honey, and... er... Auction Guy (You'd have to read the comic).

Santa Maiden by Al Fukalek

This was the second Secret Santa gift I got for the Collective of Heroes art exchange, and once again, it features a very festive Titanium Maiden.  With her Amazonian strength, she can hoist that heavy bag even if it's the weight of ten Grinches, plus two!  What's inside?  Toys for good boys and girls?  Gifts for her friends?  Or possibly some destroyed Necrobots that she's taking to the recycling center?  The only one who probably knows for certain is Al Fukalek, creator of The Specialists, and the artist behind this awesome piece.
Sailor C.R.A.S.H. by Ed Gedeon

One of the more unique art pieces I've gotten is this 2021 Fanart Contest Entry, which features Titanium Maiden and Belt Boy subverting traditional gender norms by cross-dressing as Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon (respectively).  I've never watched this anime, personally, but I suspect it would probably be up Titanium Maiden's alley.

Scary Sunflower and Sledgehammer by YouWillNeverKnow

Miss Sunflower's original design looked a bit demonic, but I wound up toning it down to make her be more of a cyborg when she finally appeared in my comic. As a runner up for my 2018 Fanart Contest, it seems that YWNK took her back to her roots, and then some! She and Sister Sledgehammer - who now looks like a spiky gladiator - look more threatening than ever! Yikes! I wonder if this change has anything to do with those crystals on Sunflower's hands...

South Park C.R.A.S.H. Staff by TheSlugCar

I like to keep my comic pretty G-rated... PG at most.  So seeing the adults of C.R.A.S.H. as South Park characters is a rather surprising sight.  Surprising or not, though, that's exactly what longtime C.R.A.S.H. contributor TheSlugCar sent in as his 2020 Generated Fanart entry.  I can't imagine that superheroes looking like this would intimidate anyone... except crab people...
  Tall Girl Meme by WireCats

Perhaps it's a bit esoteric if you haven't seen the meme, but it's absolutely fitting for C.R.A.S.H.'s hottest (super)power couple!  In the famous meme, a young man stares longingly at a woman of Amazonian stature holding a microphone; WireCats has appropriately put Belt Boy and Titanium Maiden in those respective roles.  This picture wound up being the 2022 Fanart Contest Winner for totally nailing their dynamic!

Ten Year Triptych by Autumnotopia

The 2016 Fanart Contest Winner had a very special picture for a very special occasion; 2016 marked the ten year anniversary of my comic! In honor of this occasion, Autumnotopia attempted a triptych - a set of three pictures that go together. She was only able to complete one section before the deadline, but Cannon asserts she got the most important part done first. If parts 2 and 3 are as good as part one, we'll be waiting with bated breath!

This Was Supposed to Be a Submarine by Silence of the Clams

This was a belated Secret Santa picture that SotC actually gave me in person at KaVention. Hey, better late than never. It has Cannon riding what was supposed to be a submarine, but turned out to be a machine resembling a tank, which is also awesome.

Three's a Crowd by Ave Messer

This 2020 Fanart Contest Entry is by another Collective of Heroes comic creator - Ave Messer of The Almighty Protectors fame.  While Titanium Maiden is front and center in this piece, being kissed by her boyfriend, Belt Boy, my favorite detail is jealous Cannon trying to nudge his way into the picture, as our leading lady is taking up both a lot of room and a lot of his best friend's attention.
Tiffany McMendell, Artist by Ken Bailey

This is the second time Ken Bailey won my annual birthday contest with a drawing of my comic's lead heroine, but this time around, he didn't draw her as the battle-ready hero-in-training Titanium Maiden, but as Tiffany McMendell, the quiet aspiring artist.  This piece was my 2020 Fanart Contest Winner not merely because of the fantastic art, but because it captures TM's personality.  Also, I can't help but notice that the subject of her artwork is Ken's own amazonian heroine, EnergyGirl...!

To Be Legends by Artistical Cosmical

AC's given me my first fanart picture, as well as my first fan comic. But this time, he stepped up his game and became the 2009 Fanart Contest Winner with this awesometastic picture of all the Heroes of C.R.A.S.H. as adults - and as legendary heroes. Definitely loving the updated costumes, and putting me snoozing in a corner was a nice touch. This may be my most famous fanart I've gotten, as it graced my front page for much of 2009 during an unexpected hiatus.

Trick or Treat! by Ms Artist (Requested by Hipopotamo)

As part of the Collective of Heroes' 2020 Halloween art exchange, Hipopotamo and Ms Artist - who work on the webcomic M9 Girls drew my trio of heroes trick-or-treating!  Belt Boy's cape looks a little spookier when he's dressed as a vampire, Titanium Maiden's bunny costume matches her shyness more than her physique, and Cannon has modified his armor to resemble that of a knight (Now if only he'd learn a thing or two about chivalry...!).

Wardrobe Malfunction by Tselsebar

Fellow 910CMX webcomic artist Tselsebar - the guy behind The Wotch: Cheer! - made this hilarious picture of Belt Boy, Cannon, and Titanium Maiden, surrounded by Necrobots. Of all two-million-and-one functions in Belt Boy's utility belt, Tselsebar reminds us what the most important function is...

Webcomic Awards Gala by CD Rudd

Yet another fine piece - and another cool crossover - from CD Rudd!  This entry for my 2019 Fanart Contest features his characters from SailorSun.Org and my characters at some sort of webcomic awards gala.  I'm not sure what awards such a gala would give out, but I'm fairly certain that Belt Boy won an award for Coolest Goggles - not every webcomic character can wear goggles with a tuxedo and pull it off!
When Universes Collide by Ken Bailey

Ken Bailey's no stranger to drawing my character, especially alongside his.  Here, my main trio get to meet EnergyGirl (AKA Ellen Peabody), Cartoonistman (Stan Peabody), and FDSH Agent Merrie Olzmabil.  This awesome, 6-character art piece easily became the 2023 Fanart Contest winner!

Wonderful Wrasslin' Entertainment by Chris (Note: The preceeding links to YouTube)

Chris is my best friend, the inspiration for Cannon, and the winner of the 2009 Generated Fanart Contest (Once again, no conflict of interest here, folks. It was the only entry. Funny... the easier of the two categories to enter tends to be the more neglected of the two each year.). He made my main trio in the create-a-wrestler mode for the video game WWE Day of Reckoning. Even awesomer, he put up a video of them wrestling on YouTube, with Weird Al Yankovic's parody song The Rye or the Kaiser playing in the background.
