Character Contest 69: Faceoff

With thanks to Hammerknight for the suggestion, your Character Design Challenge this week is to create an awesome face. That’s right, all entries this time around must be a portrait only of someone who looks interesting, cool, and/or awesome. When I say portrait view, I mean a close-up of the character’s head, roughly from the shoulders up to just above the top of the head.

I’m particularly interested in cool-looking faces, though that’s not a strict requirement. In other words, if you’re doing an image of a knight, it’s probably a good idea to put his or her visor in the up position, but you won’t be disqualified if it’s down instead.

For me, I’m going to be most impressed by faces that look distinctive, as if it could be a picture of an actual human being versus a sort of generic comic book person.

That’s not to say you have to make a human face, of course. I’m sure we’ll see our fair share of aliens, robots, and “other”, all of which I look forward to very much as well!

In addition to the above constraints, the usual rules apply as well:

  1. Use only a HeroMachine applet (no PhotoShopping except for basic cropping) to create a PNG or JPG of your entry, named as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  2. Post the image to a publicly accessible website (ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, etc.).
  3. Enter the name of your entry and a link directly to the image in a comment to this post. The image cannot have been used in any previous HeroMachine character design contest.
  4. The link to your image should go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see “preview” or “rotate” somewhere in the link you’re probably doing it wrong.
  5. I’ll choose a winner next Monday, who will receive his or her choice of any item or a portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 program, or a “Sketch of the Week” style black and white illustration (you pick the subject and I draw it up however I like).

No limit on entries this week, so knock yourselves out. Good luck everyone!

    This feels like cheating; I used the “3/4s face guide” to make this when the original could use some improvement: http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm156/Tuldabar/Heros/Agentface2.png.

    But now I can’t decide which one looks better; this one or the original. ‘Grrrrrrrrrrr…’

  14. DiCicatriz says:

    This is a really cool idea!

    First entry is a take on my username. Cicatriz, reformed gang member operating as a covert government agent.

  15. haz says:

    DiCicatriz (26): I love the cataract on the injured eye. Very nice touch. And I really, really love the goofy puppy expression juxtaposed with the scar and prison tattoos and general hoodlum look.

  16. Worf says:

    @DiCicatriz: Nice image. Mind if I ask where you’re from? I ask because I’ve been meaning to say to you that “Cicatriz” is scar in portuguese.

  17. DiCicatriz says:

    Cicatriz is scar in Spanish too :)

    I don’t mind at all. I was born in Mexico City, my parents are both Mexican however my mother has a lot of European ancestry which accounts for my lighter skin and colored eyes. Most people assume I’m American or Spanish on first glance.

    Sadly I have (what I consider) a great idea, I just don’t have nearly the time to pull it off. Assuming it is allowed, maybe somebody else could attempt it. I was going to do Mount Geekmore or Mount Nintendmore… attempting to put famous characters from those categories on a mountain face ah la Mount Rushmore. Would be funny to see imo.

    @ Kaylin88100 (81): What? Only 15 entries in two days? You’re slacking! :)

  50. Kaylin88100 says:

    @dblade (84): 16 now. That’s the most I’ve ever entered to a contest (this is my 5th). :) 2nd place goes to the Two Great Tastes contest last month, which I entered 11 times and got 1 Finalist. So in theory I should get at least 1 this time. In theory. :(

  51. Jeff Hebert says:

    Kaylin88100, you always do good work (and I haven’t actually looked at any of the ones for this contest yet), so don’t take this personally — it’s definitely meant as a general statement, not a specific one to you, at all.

    But, in general quantity != quality. Entering multiple times does not necessarily increase your chances of a win. Sometimes a person with only one submission comes away with the win because they NAILED it on that one.

  52. Kaylin88100 says:

    @Jeff (86): I know what you mean, but I have a lot of good ideas that I want to try (at least I think they’re good) so I try them all. It doesn’t mean I put less effort into each idea, which I think some people might if they were doing lots. Plus, I enjoy making them so much that I don’t really mind about the winning part. To me the only thing about winning is that I would get to ask for an item :)

    Here’s my first entry. I just focused almost 100% on the face, since it seemed right for the contest. I wanted to go realistic, so I went with a rough-looking soldier. Also, I have to say, that for some weird reason, this ended up looking the actor Sam Worthington. I think it does, anyway. And I didn’t even mean to do that!

    Also strange coincidence that you, an avowed Batman fan, return during what appears to be Jeff’s “anti-Batman” week.

    Sorry if this is kind of random, but I think that it is awesome that everyone here has a different style to their characters. For example, I just took a look at one of Asder’s faces (145), and it reminded me of mine (126). However, though they are similar in concept, they are completely different in exicution, which I think is really awesome. I love how Heromachine allows you to make a character exactly how you want to make it. So, this is really just a big thank you to Jeff, and a shoutout to all of you for making each character awesome in every way possible :)

    Oh, and Asder, I love your character! The shading makes it look really cool :)

  88. Jeff Hebert says:

    Anti-Batman?! I protest! Anti-Azrael, definitely. And granted, the poll does ask about who could take out Batman, but let’s be honest — none of them would actually succeed :-)

    I agree with Myro, though, that it’s nice to see you back, Zaheelee.

  89. Zaheelee says:

    Yeah, I hate the Azrael-Batman, too. He tried to kill Tim Drake/ Robin! Tim is my favorite character in the history of forever, so Jean Paul Valley is very close to the top of my “lame superhero’s” list. Along with Superman. Yes, I went there.

    Been on a bit of a film noir kick lately. The subject of my portrait seems like a mash-up of Humphrey Bogart and, well, me.

    Oh, and Zyp, can you make a tutorial on how to angle a face and still make it look believable? I always have trouble with the eyes…

  126. Brons says:

    Known only as “The Colonel”. this mystery man is thought to have once been The Man in Red, the world’s first costumed man of mystery, though he doesn’t look old enough to be been active for over 70 years. The Colonel heads the sprawling superhero clan known as “The Family”. Seldom active in the field, he has none the less displayed a devastating mastery of Tai Chi, and extraordinary strength.

    HOLY COW THERES A LOT OF ENTRIES! I didn’t have time to design anything for the last TWO contests but I’m hoping this one works well enough.

    http://i979.photobucket.com/albums/ae274/capttravis/MScat-GothGirl.jpg

    Basically there was a girl I knew in High School that I LOVED and she had a somewhat gothic style… i took the hair color off one of my favorite actresses (if you know who then your as big a nerd as I am) Put it all together and I got this.

    The freckles didn’t turn out as good as I’d liked but oh well. 😉

    This time I wanted to experiment with creating a portrait with out the use of any actually head, face, or body parts. I primarily used backgrounds, and hand held items to creat the desighn, it may not be all that emotive but it was fun so here it is.

    Final entry. Admittedly, the majority of my entries have been close-ups not portraits. I also realize late that my robots are reversed. The angel should be on the right shoulder. Oh well, I’m having fun.

    This contest went beyond a new level of awesome. Folks, we’re travelling through planes of Nirvana! Good luck!

    OK here is Entry 2 for me

    It is Husani a Cat Elf Sensite of Sharess for a game I’m playing hi in.
    For those who have no idea what I just said he is a Specialty Priest of a form of Bast in her Sex Kitten asspect … basically … he’s a sacred Gigalo. But really it is all about Pleasure in all forms not just sex. Drinking, Great food, Music, Dance, Poetry, Jokes, Massage, Sunning …

    So here is Husani laying under a tree on a warm day, being a little seductive.
    Don’t worry … this IS a Face Off entry … it IS safe for the workplace.
