Character Design Contest ♯129- Heads Up

Ok, so this week, your focus in this challenge shall be heads, with particular focus on faces and hair. Now, a few additional rules for this weeks contest shall be in place, as with last week. No Masks or Hats, obviously, as that sort of defeats the whole point of the challenge, though hair accessories and jewellery are allowed. Also, all submissions must be headshots only, so you don't need to do anything below the shoulders. You can do non-human heads for this challenge (as I know someone will ask about this), just so long as it meets the other entry criteria. And yes, your character must have some sort of hair or facial hair, but don't just slap one of the standard hair items on the and call it a day. Be inventive.

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.

    Entry #1 – Cilia Darkpaw

    Curious how you got the stripes on the face. Not asking to do myself, it just looks cool and I’m curious.

    Background, Word Balloons, you’ll see the curved tail of the word bubble as a separate item. Resize and mask to the head (s) . Each stripe is masked to a separate head layered atop each other. Except the for one on the forehead and the two small ones under the eyes, which are water drop insignias., The hair is mostly build of the same items.

    Here’s mine. A Last Cigarette

  7. Herr D says:

    Hair exists only in tufts on this particular species. One behind each sagittal crest, and one mid-cheek on each side of the bifurcated cranium. Recessively expressed every third generation or so. The [i]Andromedus Ilavus Amphibious Sapiens[/i] is one of only sixteen known species to successfully control secretion composition to the molecular colloid level. They still cannot, despite rumor and myth to the contrary, spit out the equivalent of a soy latte or creme brulee. At best, they could manage a thin milkshake in three or four flavors or a thin meat-flavored broth.

  8. Garrett says:

    Every hero needs a villain.
    So, I’d like to present, The Lumberjack of Mombasa, Zuberi Sefu.

    Okay, so, question. What if I made a head that filled the whole place, so I didn’t use a headshot? Because when it’s big, you can use a lot more detail.

  10. JR19759 says:

    @hawk007- Just so long as it’s just the head, it’s fine.

  11. hawk007 says:

    So here’s mine. A self portrait/portrait (because it doesn’t look a whole lot like me).

  12. Mad Jack says:

    Non-human heads are allowed? Well, then I’ll start with those two:

    Running Wolf
    Standing Bear

    And as for human heads:


    I hope war-paint doesn’t count as masks:

    Thunder Talker
