Well here's my first WIP, it has a long way to go. I have to subtract 5 colors, get a shadow on him, shade the fur correctly, this is so fun!
 
EDIT: By the way, his name is Weredoom!!

Monsters/creatures can be obscure... how do you define 'head', must each head have eyes-nose-mouth-ears... what are the requirements in that regard... for example can i make a creature with a mouth on its body, but three mouth-less heads?

"mouth-less heads" was for the sake of clarification in what I was imagining... not even sure if i'm gonna do that, I'm working on concepts ATM. But I still would like to know in the challenge context makes a 'head'.

Here's a Wikipedia article. I don't see the point of delving into absolute minutiae of the semantics of the word 'head' though; you could sit here all day arguing about what constitutes a 'head'. But instead, why not start pixeling something first and post it here. Then we can go from there.

I assume you're going to make them more headlike (rather than weird-tumor like).

Anyway, keep going, I agree with slaughterism, definitely has potential to be awesome.

why not a brighter colour in the eyes to create more of a creepy glowing effect.

Also, maybe add more surrounding trees in order to heighten the claustrophobic feel.

This is looking as good or better than i thought it would =]
 
2 brightest colors of the sun could use a bit of a  transition fix so they look as good as the other colors / layers.
 
Really like the added trees / claustrophobic feel. Maybe a little detail on the closer trees and id say your pretty much done. Wow.
 
Challenge just started and im already afraid of the competition. lol

1. That's awesome.

2. I'm sure that counts as a head.

3. I think that the animation for the part of the body neck-down needs some work, it looks kind of jagged atm.

@ jeremy - nice character design, but I think a neck of either of the two side heads should come off of the middle neck.

Ok, not sure if this counts as a creature, since it's pretty plant-y. Personally I think it's close enough. WIP:

Came up with this guy today. Put the kid riding it in there because I didn't want just wings in that spot. At 11 colors right now so might need to rethink it some. So much a WIP.
