Character Design Contest ♯84- Hair Raising

So, now that we've got the easy stuff out the way, lets move on to something a bit more challenging shall we. This week I want you guys to create the best hairstyles you can using heromachine. We've done poses, costumes and faces, so we might as well do hair. One stipulation I have for this weeks challenge is that your entries must be headshots. I don't mind if you do faces and such for your entries, but I will be judging purely on the hair.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week 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.

    My entry for this design contest. Really didn’t want to just have the hair even if the competition is all about them so i decided to make something like a story. This is Death Of A Warrior.

    I’m taking liberties with the “headshot” parameter of the contest by asking “If I take the body out of the picture because the hairstyle is too big, is it still a headshot?”
    Here’s Rapunzel:

    Dee is this great masseuse who has a table not far from my home. Myself and several other people stop by randomly when we can. She has the lightest touch, and can massage a surprising amount of sore muscles at one time. Her hair’s always a mess, and her cigarette breaks are long enough that not everyone likes her. I stopped by one day recently to discover she had both arms in ace bandages. I didn’t expect her to be on the job at all. –You know, I couldn’t even tell a difference?
    What a trooper!

  13. Nug says:

    Seriously debating even posting this. There are too many great entries!

  14. Cliff says:

    Back in my drag days when I went by the name Ivanna Mann, my drag mom Sofonda Bunns would say
    “The higher the hair, the closer to God”

    So I present to you the female impersonator:

    Dolly I Beg Your Pardon

    and although the hair color and eyes arent right for the character Jolene they are for Dolly I Beg Your Padon singing Jolene

    I hope you enjoy. 😀

    PS. If the song links bug you please let me know politely, and I’ll stop it. but I really liked the Inspired By Music contest.

    @Shashwat Mishra
    Thank you so much for the kind comment.

    Ari is very interesting. Reminiscent of Queen Amadala or something.

    Very nice. I, of course, love the rainbow hair. I thought about doing a rainbow hair, but didn’t want to appear I was copying you.

    I think yours is pretty great too, nice addition to the contest.

    Bog hair of the future was very nicely done, love the uniform too,

    I’m not sure what made your redbeard modern, but he is very kewl. I think you are the only one who did facial hair for the contest. 🙂

    Lovely shading on Greta Holz face and costume

    Kewl qypsy. I know what you mean about so many layers. My geisha was 125 layers.

    I hate you. 😀

    Very kewl work everyone.

  16. Qiana says:

    just a twist on the concept 🙂
