Myself as a Gnome Alchemist
Short and unkempt, this gnome strives for two things in his life and disregards all else. He wishes for nothing more than height and wealth. Aside from his forays into the back alleys of the market to purchase contraband reagents and ingredients for his experiments, he is most often holed up in the secret cellar of an inn, undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of daily life.
He owns only one set of clothes, now heavily stained and patched, and bathes only when his own stench mingles with the scents of his elixirs, and skew his research. At his throat hangs a bottle he dare not open - purchased years ago from a merchant of an untrustworthy sort. He knew better, but the promise was too great for him to ignore. A serum that, when drunk, would make a man - or gnome - grow to be eight feet tall. A hero's stature. Such a man would no doubt be respected and feared, and wealth would quickly follow in tow.
But the likelihood of fraud is too great, and even this gnome is too clever to be entirely blinded by hope. So instead, he wears it as a pendant, ever spurring him on to find the formula for himself, so that he too might one day walk shoulder to shoulder with the great men and women of the world.
This elf feels at one with nature, speaking with the trees and the animals. She is a cheerful, spritely being that thrives on the idea that life is an adventure, and she takes full advantage of everything that is thrown her way. She is comfortable being in the woods by herself, with her animal companions, or with her kinsmen..."well rounded," if you will.
This elf is smaller than the usual elf, standing at only five feet tall, but this gives her an advantage in the wild, being able to hide easily and run swiftly. She uses her nature magic for good, and to protect her forest home from the outside world.
A gnome engineer seen as the self
While he might not be the best engineer, he can make things that break apart and hold together with what best can be described as magic. There's this glee in figuring out what works and how — and then after it's been disassembled how it can work sort of like before again.
All this explains the scorch marks and scarring in the forehead. Things do not always go as planned. But never mind, there's always the next thing to tinker with.
A cleric capable to protect your party at any price, I've chosen this character according to my personality I am a thinking person when it comes to solve problems but at the same time I am a very active and athletic, that's why I wanted to show my two aptitudes, and the colours I've used are my favorites.
regarding of thumbnails I was very sure of the pose, that's why I put directly the front and back poses

I decided to go with the result of the fantasy race quiz that lissinator suggested:
"Everything my god needs to say to you can be said with my weapon."
In secret temples far from bustling cities and priestly hierarchies, orders of esoteric warriors train their initiates in ancient traditions now forgotten or forbidden by most religious organizations. The champions of these orders are avengers—deadly weapons in the hands of their gods, imbued with divine power through secret rites of initiation. In battle, avengers swear to execute divine vengeance, entering a mental state that gives them unerring focus on a single enemy.
As an avenger, you were trained in a monastery, initiated through secret rites, and imbued with the power to smite your god's foes. You might be a disciple of Ioun, sworn to hunt and exterminate the minions of Vecna until you one day face the Maimed God. You could be an agent of the Raven Queen, bringing death to those who would defy your mistress. Or perhaps you serve Bahamut as an agent of justice, bringing ruin to tyrants and oppressors. The organizations devoted to your god might view you as a heretic or a hero, but you answer only to your god and to the vows you swore upon your initiation as an avenger.
Where will those vows lead you? One thing is certain: Doing the will of your god is never easy and never free of peril.

My first CHOW. Very proud to have entered a piece, despite the flaws.
Me as an elementalist. Not content with mastery of fire or earth alone, I have harnessed the power of MAGMA.

An Elven healer. She harnesses the power of sunlight to fill you with warmth and happiness, bringing you back to health and helping you realise your full potential. Those that see her think that her cascading golden hair is made of sunlight, and long to basque in her warm glow. She will not use her powers for just anyone though, for she is distrustful of most humans, seeing them as a threat to nature. If you are fortunate enough to receive her healing touch, a little bit of her warmth will stay with you always and help you through the darkest places until you reach your journeys end.
First Chow I've ever finished on time!
It's me as a fantasy nature-y druid/shaman. Shaman was the initial choice, as I am very superstitious, but I did not like the idea of animal sacrifices etc. No animals were harmed in the making of this, since I am a vegetarian and a tree-hugger.
Hopefully the more of these that I do, the better they will get... Some of these are looking AMAZING. Great work everyone!
here's my entry: a wave slaying elf shark surfboard rider
Nick the Relentless, Nick the Destroyer, these are the names by which I am sometimes known. This is me as a demon warlord (probably yelling at my car or something). Enjoy!
P.S. Great entries everybody! Really excellent stuff.

Also check out my new website!
There are some really sweet entries so far
I was very much pressed for time on this one, and ended up doing some experimentation with the colouring. Even if it doesn't go to poll I had a lot of fun with it xD
I am a skilled fighter, working to protect nature from all who threaten it. As nature's champion I am blessed with it's powers. It heeds my call and my weapons are imbued with pure life energy that can be used to either fell my foes or save my allies. I am a Warden, and as the mountain will not bow to the wind, so I won't bow to the forces that go against nature.
FOR THE TREES!
... I just had to say that.
Myself as an Elf druid.
Deep inside the dark forest lives a half-orc, that was once a great leader of his tribe. Despite his brutal and primitive nature he was a clever creature. Unlike his brothers. And thats why many brave knights and warriors met their doom from hands of this half-orc. But none knows how he manage to defeat so many warriors, beacuse there was no man who survived duel with this beast. When he's tribe was slaughtered, he manage to escape and hide deep in the mists. Now he's looking for new companions to rebuild he's tribe and in the meanwhile killing those who was stupid enough to follow him.
