HHN Hollywood 2013 Character Design Contest

Recommended Posts

Just mailed off my write-up. While I'm quite confident in my drawing ability, and I sketched out every idea I had, I really feel that going with a write-up and letting the pro draw it was a smarter way to go. Besides, I probably a better writer than artist...

Anyway, I went with an Invisible Man design. I had really cool Hunchback and Renfield designs I did as well, but Griffin felt like the right choice.

The finalists were released, and I have to say, the art is good, but I'm not a huge fan of the one that's winning, the Invisible Man. I really like the Phantom one though. Could look both great and scary. Not winning though.

im pretty sure its winning because it's the best drawn/rendered but i still love it. I'm had a really hard time choosing between the two invisible men and the aztec version of the mummy but i eventually choose the mummy.

Yeah, the Mummy is pretty damn good too. Just not sure I want a scary showgirl jumping out at me. Save it for Penn and Teller.

Am i the only one confused by Dracula's Bride? She looks great, but it'd be nice if they posted a short backstory/ description for all of them. Honestly i want all of them at the event. I also think the invisible man may have the most votes because it was the best rendered which is why all of them should have been re done by HHN's concept artist so it could have been an even playing field

I like the first Invisable man the more rendered one the other one would be my second pick as for the mummy ehhh the whole Aztech thing turns me off.

I'm not really a fan of any of them, no offense to anyone who became a finalist. Maybe if I got to read a description of them or something.

Since the contest is over, I guess I can go ahead and post what my ideas were. I was either going to do creature from the black lagoon based in prehistoric amphibians or this version of a werewolf for the wolfman accompanied by a voodoo priest http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rougarou (may still do the later for fun)

I was thinking of doing a Wolfman that started to eat himself during transformation...but got busy with silly stuff like wedding planning.

I submitted an Invisible Man that was wrapped in flesh he peeled from his victims.

I'm a bit annoyed to see the obvious winner is (arguably) the least creative and is winning strictly because its the best drawing.

That sounds super bad ass. How the hell did that not get picked?

The current winner (invisible man) looks like something Hot Topic vomited.

Who knows. I made him a Hollywood star on the red carpet (he wore a white tux and bow tie that had drops of blood all around the shoulders and the neck. Only I submitted a write-up versus a drawing because, surprise, I knew the best drawing would likely win rather than the most creative.

EDIT - That said... I voted for the Newspaper Invisible Man... because I thought that was the most creative of the group.

I voted for the newspaper invisible man. I agree with Legacy and I don't know why but the invisible man that is winning reminds me awfully alot about the demon from Sinister. Legacy yours actually does sound better than any of the finalists. I really liked what my friend submitted which I thought was great. He made a whole backstory on how Doc. Frankenstein has survived up to now in modern times. He has been killing people for parts of their body to exchange them for his to not age and stay alive. His face was rotted away with many scars. It looked like a combo of Leatherface and a zombie. He had syringes on his neck and still had the same hairstyle. He had a long white bloody lab coat and his boots looked like the ones that the invisible man finalist has. To top it of the doc carries around a chainsaw to kill his victims.

I have to say, I'm kind of disappointed too. No offense to the creators, but I expected to be blown away.

Needless to say, I chose Dracula's Bride. I thought she was the scariest looking one. As for the Invisible Man, I'm not too sure why it's winning. I don't find that scary.

The Invisble Man drawing is so basic, it's a nice drawing but he point of voting is to see which one of those drawings would look badass/scary if they were brought to life. The Aztec one would be scary.

I think the contest needs a little more creativity and freedom. Not just have it tie into classic monsters but anything and anyone. The ones that can't be brought to life at HHN obviously should just not be picked but the best ones that could should be able. Lets see if 2014 has the contest again and allows a little more freedom.

The FB has put up (all?) more of the character designs... tell me why literally ALL of them are better than the 5 chosen? I seriously don't understand how so many genius ones were passed up. Maybe I'll pick my fave 5 in a little bit.

I haven't picked my 5, but here are the ones that I'm narrowing it down to:

998519_10151481790646727_1067650395_n.jp

He's the doctor... and his own creation! Love it.

1001605_10151481790741727_1515238950_n.j

I like the helmet smashed on his head.

1044319_10151481790751727_626659011_n.jp

I'm not sure what this has to do with Frankenstein... maybe if it was like Jekyl and Hyde thing.

1000402_10151481791251727_395861483_n.jp

I don't know if this is possible to make but the idea is pretty damn cool lol

992778_10151481791726727_272366203_n.jpg

Proper, which makes him creepy lol

945345_10151481791736727_1966200654_n.jp

This would be AWESOME if played by a dwarf haha

970583_10151481791821727_1968911073_n.jp

Love the red hair.

1044514_10151481791891727_441668148_n.jp

Reminds me of the Flasher, but with no face!

1003670_10151481791936727_545458590_n.jp

Never imagined a female Phantom... very cool!

17598_10151481791966727_311825607_n.jpg

Same as the Phantom... a female Creature. Very cool idea.

1011398_10151481792231727_400462799_n.jp

I just love how classic this looks.

1001879_10151481792241727_1701459701_n.j

FREAKIN INSANE. I love this one.

1001505_10151481792781727_729761252_n.jp

This is one bad ass lookin mofo

5886_10151481792746727_475008142_n.jpg

Simple, but cool.

1044564_10151481789656727_2090765151_n.j

Weird enough that I like it

992901_10151481789701727_444346486_n.jpg

My guess is this is someone recently mummized since they have guts spilling out. Not sure if it all makes sense, but I like the imagery.

1011816_10151481789806727_1271727756_n.j

Might be too detailed to work on a scareactor.

1045175_10151481789816727_998971282_n.jp

Same here... it's a bit much.

934981_10151481790296727_331103951_n.jpg

Very well drawn, but only equally as grotesque as some of the other hunchbacks. Seems more plausible to create though.

971472_10151481790421727_911850188_n.jpg

I like the tentacles, but that unfortunately is probably what makes it unable to work (scareactor might trip on them, idiots would step on them, etc).
