The Gallery Of Beards

Gallery Of Beards Shave

Last week I revealed the shocking truth that I have a beard in real life and asked you the question; “Should Cartoon Stu have one too?” Well, the results are in, the votes have been counted and you the people have decided that… (pause for dramatic effect)… Cartoon Stu should not have a beard.

Although I will continue to wear my beard in real life for the time being it is clearly time for a virtual shaving of Cartoon Stu. However, as any man (or woman) who has ever been the proud owner of a beard will know, you can’t simply shave it all off in one go. To do so would be a horrible waste of a great opportunity. You have to plan these things. You have to experiment. You have to tryout different patterns. You have to see what you would look like with different kinds of beards. And so without farther ado I give you…

Gallery Of Beards Shave

Thank you everyone who voted. There were a lot of good arguments for and against and for those of you who really wanted to see Cartoon Stu with facial fuzz fear not. I promise that he will occasionally be seen sporting a beard (one that does not look like he had an accident with his orange juice).

    I like the Gentleman, in part because it also looks like the Lemmy (of Motorhead fame).

  2. Amanda says:

    I like the evil twin look, although I have a soft spot for the ‘hobo’ or as we call it in my family “the Vermonter”. ;)

  3. Sarah says:

    Slightly disturbed that the Shaggy looks rather like Johnny Depp. Does not compute.

  4. Invader_Stu says:

    Alsion – It’s funny you say that. It started as the Lemmy beard but I didn’t have time to do a full Lemmy costume.

    Amanda – That’s actually the beard I use for my Sinterklaas cartoons which leads to an interesting fact; if you make the Sinterklass beard another other colour then white it looks like a Hobo beard.

    Sarah – I did try the Shaggy look once in my college days. Now that you’ve said that I like to think I looked like Johnny Depp.

    Aww look at Cartoon Porn Stu’s cute little pecks! haha

  6. Invader Stu says:

    When talking about a man’s nudity it is important to be careful how you use words such as little… we have fragile egos when it comes to that sort of thing :p

  7. Breigh says:

    It’s all a part of my plan to chip away at your confidence before our next game night!

  8. Heather says:

    Yay! Although had I known The Scoundrel was an option I might have voted differently. :)

  9. Jules says:

    You’re just not evil enough to pull off Scoundrel.

  10. Anita says:

    Man, if somebody asked me to describe the real you I would skip mentioning you have a beard. I particularly do not like pilosities on the face (not mine, not hubby’s). But if I have to choose one, then I like the Evil Twin. And the Stubble (which is actually rather a five o’clock shadow than a beard).

  11. Invader_Stu says:

    Breigh – Now I’m scared

    Heather – I can always bring him back every now and then.

    Jules -Yeah… well… I can be evil. I can be totally evil. Today I did not say thank you when someone held the door open for me… so there.

    Anita – It’s ok. You don’t have to pick one. This is just for fun.

  12. Aledys Ver says:

    Well, you could try all those looks and have the Hobo period, the Evil Twin period, and so on…. :D

  13. dragonlady says:

    I like the Jack Sparrow, maybe you should try it in real life. Though to really make it work you would need to grow your hair as well.

  14. Bart says:

    I am my own evil twin, generally with stubble because I’m really too lazy to shave.

  15. suus says:

    nice work Stu.
    And as an ancient Dutch song says: “All those who do not fear Death nor Devil must be bearded men”. (And the Elvis rules. Elvis or Hobo, because the hobo incorporates the Elvis)

  16. Efrutik says:

    I like the Stubble, I think still cute that way !!!!!!!!!!! Hihi Maybe I am being biased though b/c there are Tulips in the background, who knows ;)

    P.S. what does “Stubble” mean by the way?

  17. Bart says:

    @Efrutik: stubble=schuurpapier

  18. Wezz6400 says:

    These are great! That must’ve been quite a bit of work, with a different background for each one and everything.

    Personally I like the scoundrel and evil twin best, but the others as well.

  19. Invader Stu says:

    Aledys Ver – I like that idea. I could use the gallery as a check list.

    Dragonlady – and a pirate costume :)

    Bart – Laziness to shave is a sign of pure evil.

    Suus – How about a Hobo Elvis?

    Efrutik: Bart beat me to the explanation :p

    Wezz6400 – It took me a bit longer then I planned. That’s why the post was a lot later than normal. And I think that say’s something about you if you like the evil looking ones best :p

  20. Wendi says:

    Oh, my goodness, you need to do this as a regular feature. Like Stu’s new hairpiece or Stu’s new pants.

    (And I vote for Jack Sparrow)

  21. French Bean says:

    This is totally awesome! I love how you left the Porn Star Stu for laugh (that really was guffaw-worthy).

    The Scoundrel makes me think of those old black-and-white films in which there is a hysterically screaming lady tied down to a set of railroad tracks. All the cartoon needs is a black top hat and black cape. :-P

  22. Invader Stu says:

    Wendi – That would require me to wear pants first :p

    French Bean – As it happens I do leave screaming ladies tied to rail road tracks on a daily bases.

  23. jen says:

    Excellent non-OJ beards! But what of the “Amish”? Or the “Serj Tankian”? So many variations..

  24. Marianne says:

    I like the thespian and the scoundrel best. And I didn’t think I liked moustaches…

  25. VallyP says:

    Hobo…it’s the hobo…most definitely :) No, not you! It’s the beard……

  26. Invader Stu says:

    Marianne – How about a thespian scoundrel or a scoundrel thespian?

    VallyP – It will take me several weeks to grow it but I’ll try :p

    The hobo is closer to reality (come on, admit it). I thought I drew a bearded Stu on your teabag. That sounded like a really dodgy bit of innuendo, didn’t it?

  29. Invader Stu says:

    It does just a bit :p
