    Since there's been a round for older people (baba yaga) and males (queen's consort) recently, maybe have a round to illustrate one of the children from well-known fairy tales? I was thinking little red riding hood or maybe goldilocks with bonus points if you include the wolf/the three bears and make the creatures into distinctive characters without including 'gender-specific' clothing to indicate which is the daddy/mummy/baby.

    Man, I'll say this now but it makes me shy: Showing your own interpretation of a video game villain. Sort of the "I woulda made him this way" type of thing, but possibly picked randomly by ChoW mods. I'm biased myself because I always think of King Koopa from Super Mario. Or even Dr. Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog. Tee hee! *runs*

    Pardon if someone said this already. I was too lazy to look today.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shub-Niggurath

    The (in)famous goddess of the Lovecraft mythos.

    The (black) goat of the woods.

    Described by Lovecraft as an "evil cloud-like entity"

    But maybe she/he looks very different?

    Give her a different look. Horrible, cute, sinister, strange, alien, sexy, whatever...

    Just my two cents.

    Okay, guys, personal request. Lately we've had a lot of literature/pop-culture characters and stuff... Anyone have some neat ideas for characters that are just in your head? A specially built character for chow?

    I'd like to see some Aerial Ballerinas all up ins. I suppose that'd be more of a costume design excercise rather than a character design one...

    How about:

    "Robot(s) in Love"

    The Orc Hero

    "Been there, done that!"

    The stone age man invents the fire.

    Alvaro, Protector of the Fountain - once a brave and adventurous soldier, there was no adventure to big. He was rumored to have killed several dragons, two he fought at the same time. And even that stint with the harem in the orient did nothing to tarnish his name. Until one day he was told of a far off place, full of mystery, and the greatest prize man could seek, "The Fountain of Youth." Alvaro, being who he was, took this quest venturing far and wide in search of this incredible treasure. He was one of the few to meet the Protectoress, a cunning woman who tricked him into following her. For she knew the Fountains location and only through her could anyone reach it. Through a series of trials, Alvaro was cursed. Now, he is an old, wretched creature that protects his master and the fountain for all eternity, never able to drink from its waters or to warn others that may suffer his fate.

    The Protectoress - possesses all the knowledge of the Fountain of Youth. She curses or grants access to adventurers seeking to drink of its waters. She is untamable and one never knows what fate will bring them when they run into her.

    Dean Donloe was once a Chicago Assistant District Attorney until in 1981 he was elected to become Earth's first and only Sentinel, a member an interplanetary police force created by an alien confederacy as a result of Mankind's use of atomic power in Space Shuttles during the Cold War. Donloe's career as the Sentinel lasted 37 years until his position was terminated when Earth was classified as "Excessively Violent and Socially Unenlightened". Forced never again to don his Sentinel uniform in the name of Earth, Donloe became jaded and embittered towards humanity taking on the mindset of many alien species he met. He then went to live in a Tibetan Temple where he sought "self enlightenment" once again harboured his narcissism. It wasn't till 2012 that a 52-year-old Donloe decided to go against the Confederacy's order and once again become The Sentinel of Earth.

    The Sentinel suit is a antique of a now lost planet, whose destruction set the creation of the Confederacy in motion. Black and covered in a series of diodes, the suit is the pinnacle of both nano and holographic technology able to repair itself and create tangible, hard light constructs from shields to beams of concussive force (essentially the same effect the green lantern ring has)
    And of course, with the birth of the artist came the inevitable afterbirth - the critic.

    Ok....I have two ideas....
    First.....
    Dimon from The Golden Compass movie and book.............it could be kind of a self-portrait with your dimon together (you would need to have a great imagination for creating your own dimon) what animal would it be? what would ne its personality, as the dimon is aprt of your own soul.....it could be interesting.........Or just forget about the self-portrait and create just your dimon...

    Second idea.....
    The Dark Circus...........you could create any character who takes part of a circus.... but it must be dark......kind of scary clown.....or scary contortionist....etc...
