Character Design Contest ♯123- All Winners Squad

So guys, for this weeks contest, I wish for you to turn your attention to a section of Heromachine 3 that falls under the Heads category. It is titled simply "Winners" and contains the faces of some of the great and good of the Heromachine community of the past and present, including our great and powerful overlord Mr Hebert. So your challenge this week is simple. Go create me an awesome picture using one (or more) of those faces. That is the only requirement (apart from the usual rules about copyright characters etc.), the pic can be anything you want, within reason, so long as it contains one of those faces. So make them cool, make them funny, make them scary, but make sure to make them awesome.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

  1. @Mason Kuiper- Ok, that’s just mean dude. Yeah, I said you can make them funny, but I’ll let Jeff rule on that one. If he doesn’t mind then it’s ok, but if not…

  2. Entry #1
    Well I KNEW I was gonna use DiCicatriz. Not only is he an awesome Machinist, but he’s darn cute too. and three he wouldn’t mind me saying it.

    And following his work as I have, I knew I wanted to have him be ethnic, and involve rainbows which I am sure DiCicatriz has copywritted on HM3, feathers, and a drum of some sort.
    Sadly HM3 froze on my first try.

    Very recently I had become slightly obsessed with pic harvesting of Matadors. Can’t imagine why. 🙂
    So decided to do a super matador with DiCicatriz handsome face. I gave Diego Alvarez AKA Matador a rainbow cape, and instead of the swords/spears I gave him some lightning.
    I also used the Aztec disk as the gold on his uniform.
    Although I did use the base face as we were supposed to, I did use very similar eyes to get more color and make it look less flat, as well as added pointed hair similar to his, ears, and mouth. I did use a sexy mouth sorta, though not exactly, close to the original insted of DiCicatriz more favorite quirky smirky mouth for himself.
    The pink and gold was from SEVERAl matador pics I had, and me being me, I just decided it was worth keeping.

    Looking back, I’m glad HM3 froze, cause I was basically doing an version of a DiCicatriz work, which is awesome, but I would be treading on the pagerism line.
    With Matador I created something that was more mine with a nod to DiCicatriz.
    I hope.

  3. @Cliff- One thing I have to say is, please go back and edit the finished picture, otherwise I’m not too sure it is within the bounds of decency. It is very very obvious and I’m sure you know what bit I mean. So yeah, please go back and edit it and then re-enter it. I’m going to remove the full body picture until you’ve done so.

  4. OK, will do,
    sorry, wasn’t even thinking since it’s just part of all matador costumes. But will do, you can deleate it and I will repost.
    Sorry

  5. Welcome, the most famous hero of the Golden Age and father of superheroine Clobber Girl…
    Awesome Man!

  6. Entry #3

    I have used most of the Winners faces more than once.
    But here I used Jeff as a backup character in The New Elementals as Newspaper Editor Perry Jameson.

  7. Soooo Im from a very small, very remote swamp town in Louisiana where my family settled back when the Acadianna migration occurred. Among many of our strange legends, exists Madame Ve Tete (Head Mistress).

    You see, back in times… women and children were very very often brutalized, raped or murdered or abused by men that it was the norm. Well, Madame was a normal God fearing gypsy who saw the suffering of those around her, so she made a deal with a shadow demon to punish those who vicitimized the innocent (by slicing off their heads) in exchange for not just her soul, but for the souls of all those heads she took.

    Legend has it if you’re lost in her bayou she’ll come to you. For the innocent, she’ll bring you to her magic garden and let you eat and take as much as you want and she’ll even heal your wounds and give you a magical knick-knack before guiding you out of the swamp safely. But, for the abusers and rapists, she gives you one last chance to repent. If you cannot then she will summon her demon to slice off your head and use it for spells and all sorts of voodoo.

    She is unique to our town so much so that there isnt even so much a wiki page about her =c which is a shame cos she is a GREAT legend.

    Note- Dblade I do not assume you’re a rapist. I just picked a severed head at random. I mean no offense

  8. @ Carmen
    WOW! How is it going to feel to probably have another win?
    This is beyond beautiful, if beyond beautiful can have a disembodied head in it. LOL 😀
    What a great piece of art.
    You know when you raise a bar, it’s nice to keep in IN THIS GALLAXY!
    And I enjoyed the story too.
    Sounds like you need to get all the research you can and MAKE the Wikipedia page for Madam Ve Tete.

    “Now, Jeff… When Kipling was writing that poem about how “If you can keep your head about you, while all others are losing theirs”, I don’t think he meant like THIS!” 😉

    Random Question,
    How does one become a winner and get their face on there? It’s so cool haha

  11. @Ubiquitous Pixel- Well first one must enter one of Jeff’s contests from 3 years ago when he was doing prizes. Second, one must win one of aforementioned CDC’s. Thirdly one must claim having their face put in HM3 as their prize. So, I’d say it not really something that’s likely to be happening to anyone anymore, unless Jeff happens to decide to host a random contest like he did for JJ Baskin last year and offers it as a prize.

  12. Its been a while since I entered one of these 🙂 Well here is Blue Blazer as one of my characters Lasher….aka the Blue-Blasher (stupid pun intended).

    Oh dang it, I’d love to see how he’d draw my face!

    Thanks cliff. You’re so nice (and I loled at your full body ddesign)

    But to get more info I’d have to talk to the voodoo priest of our town and I really would rather not lol

    There’s a small memorial for her that has her story written on it and there’s a crumpled book about her in the library… And I’ve read all those.

    My greatgrandma told me about her first though and I’ve been hooked ever since

    I took some time off from posting but now I’m back so here is my entry. Amelia the teddy bear terror.

  17. Still working on the modern time cover identities for my greek goods and thought to myself “self, why don’t you use some of the winner heads and kill two birds with one stone?” Well, here’s what came out of it:

    What happens if you give dblade some hair? He becomes a god of rock ‘n’ roll! Or to be exact, Apollo, the god of music, light, inspiration, and medicine. He’s a doctor by day and a rock musician by night. Unlike me, who is a fribble by day and a sound sleeper by night … 😉

    And then there is DiCicatriz. Don’t know why, but using his head somehow resulted in Hermes, the god of speed, travel, and thieves, being a skater. Oh, what the heck – why not?! Just watch out for your wallet when you’re near him … 😀

  18. In the Egyptian way of thinking, reincarnation as a lower species could be a punishment. So . . . who was punishing the WHOLE EGYPTIAN PANTHEON BY SWAPPING OUT THEIR HEADS FOR ANIMAL HEADS? For that matter, what were the heads used for? The only quality dead human heads have differently than most animal species is that they’re ROUNDER.

    Examine plate 467A for the answer.

  19. Here’s mine, “Will No One Love Me?”. I hope it counts, because the face is kinda covered up.

  20. Before posting I just want to say I’m 54 with a rapidly changing hairline. The subjects should take this as a symbol of brotherhood.

    The Dome Patrol:
    Rogaine – can grow to twice his height but remains the same weight – he calls it “Thinning”.
    Q-Ball – with a cry of “WHIZ BANG”, takes out criminals with a powerful ricochet body shot.
    And…
    Skullet – mercy in the front; vengeance in the back. Don’t get on his bad side.

  21. One more of Madame Ve Tete.

    https://scontent-atl1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11037281_10153403872179052_8839444909126756229_n.jpg?oh=bff1d000e104887f89333844909e1223&oe=55ED3686

    Theres one story of her where she came across a man raping his children in the swamps so, in a fit of justified rage, she tore the children away from him and summoned her demon to kill him instantly, not giving him the chance of redemption she usually gave. Both the boy and girl watched in horror as their father was ripped apart, leaving them beyond mentally scarred and orphaned.

    Madame Ve Tete took them home with her and used them to help shield the innocent from witnessing the same horror they did.

    Note: she carries a lantern because in voodoo lore, its believed that shadow demons cannot exist without some light… otherwise they can’t take form.

    It’s pretty cool see my face here. The young boy face is my son’s, btw.

  23. DiCicatriz

    A massive cosmic machine powered by the collective imagination of the benevolent hive mind it houses. It wanders the universe, using its power to warp reality and manifest heroes on worlds in need. It is referred to simply as THE HEROMACHINE.
