Character Design Contest ♯62- Face Off

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge I want you to create the best headshot you can. It can be human or non-human, male or female, but I only want a headshot, so that is head, neck & shoulders, nothing else. You can dress the character up, give them headgear and stuff like that and you can give the picture a background, but the one thing I don't want is a mask. I want to be able to see the characters face. What I'm looking for here is good expression and how you put together the design on just one area of the character. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

As usual, no entry limit and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: 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.

    The idea behind this was Gaia creating the earth… I think it turned out ok.

    Getting back in the game. Here’s my character, Billy Angel. I was in a sort of 80s neon noir mood, and this is what popped up. If I need to crop the image more to follow the headshot rules, just let me know!

    I’m just wondering, but would having face paint be allowed? Or will it count as a mask?

  7. JR19759 says:

    @Linea- I guess face paint is ok, the reason I don’t want masks is that it obscures the expression of the face, which shouldn’t be a problem with paint.

    Quick question im new to heromachine and i dont know how to enter my design. HALP!!

  9. JR19759 says:

    @Dovahkiin- Ok here’s a step by step how to enter guide for you.
    1. Post the picture on a hosting site, such as Deviantart, Photobucket or the Heromachine Forums. Make sure it is named in a way that I can identify what the picture is called and who it’s by (so for example “Dovahkiin-Face” would be ok).
    2. Open the image in a new tab.
    3. Copy the hyperlink to the image (in the new tab)
    4. Paste the hyperlink into the leave a reply box.
    5. Profit
    Hope this helps
