Character Design Challenge 301 – Tis the season to be fugly!

cheesy-christmas-sweaters-bt6xntc1

Your challenge this week is to design the ugliest Christmas sweater you can imagine.

Whether you are a pullover, cardigan or sweater vest aficionado, throw all caution and taste to the wind, and just have fun!

No limit on entries this week.

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 warning. 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.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or 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 filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. 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).

This contest will close on Sunday, December 11 at 9:00am Eastern.

  6. Not sure if it’s just a Texas thing, a Southern thing or what, but it’s common to see sweaters and shorts around here.

    Thanks! Just cause it’s ugly doesn’t mean it can’t be comical lol

  10. Back in the corner of the last storeroom in the second Gimble’s re-opened store is the sweater that Myrna quit over. She said it was in poor taste. She’d been looking for an excuse to quit. Thankfully the 9-volt battery that powered the sweater and attached straw-and-star wig wore out that March.
