In this paper, we present a work-in-progress towards a perceptual study concerning male and female first impressions of male virtual faces as variations are made in terms of their facial hair (beard) length, colour and the camera viewing angle. Previous studies involving real human faces suggest that these types of variations may impact impressions of trustworthiness and related qualities, such as credibility. This research investigates similar issues, but in the domain of virtual characters, with a view to exploring issues of trustworthiness based on the appearance of virtual faces. This is of great significance to the design of interactive computational social systems.
