Pop Quiz: Barbaracious

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge today is:


Make something with this head!

You can find it in Head-Winners. It doesn’t have to be a full-on character, though it could be if you want. But the head has to be somewhere in the image, even if it’s just a photo-bomb kind of situation.

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites either tonight or tomorrow morning. Elaborate backgrounds aren’t necessary, though if you’ve got one it’s fine.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the HeroMachine Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here’s a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

  16. Barbario’s: They stay crunchy in motor oil!

  17. So I lost my phone last night, and it got me pretty mad. I’m pretty sure I know where I lost it, but when I went back, it was gone, so I figure someone swiped it. I did retrace all my steps, checked everywhere between the last place I had it and the first time I noticed it was missing, but to no avail.
    You know what this means? Action movie team-up!

    For the record, I’ve made arrangement for a new phone with my provider, which has also invalidated the sim card for my old phone. So at least no one will be racking up my minutes or using it for any other nefarious purposes.

  18. This contest is awesome!

    Here is my Barbario Creation!

    Love it lol and so true…Either Thomas or Chuggington. To those who don’t have kids Chugginton is the other train cartoon.

  24. Sebastian978

    This vampire known only as Slayer is responsible for most of the unsolved murders of New England. If he doesn’t like you, he wouldn’t tell you. He just prefers to let his sword or his spear do the talking for him. So if you’re in New England and it night time, we strongly advise you to stay indoors, or at the very least stay out of dark alleyways. If you want to live to see the next day that is…ha ha ha (maniacal laugh)

    Thanks to Barbario for being a good sport!
