    Edit: Final
    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    From the diary of Lady Corvus
    "August 21st, 1913

    I was horrified! I was woken by a cold wind. I noticed my balcony doors were open. As my vision started to adapt to the darkness, I could see an outline of a creature hunched over my dresser table. At first I thought it might be the ghost of my husband who had passed away. My hearts stopped when I saw the outline of a birds head where it's face ought to be. My senses could not face this abomination and I screamed my lunges out. Startled by my scream the strange beast ran to the door. It had the walk of a human. Yet I could hear it's feathers rustle as it dove from my balcony, flying away into the night. After I calmed down I lighted a candle. My precious jewelry boxes were opened, and I was missing my most valued pearl necklace. The strange being wasn't a monster out to take my life. It was but a mere thief!"

    FINAL:

    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    Created by the famous thief. His "daughter" is obviously trained in every area of thievery. Withouth a doubt she's here to surpass her fathers name and every other thief on earth.

    Eiko, a human being crossed with a cat. She has cat-like-abilities a normal human can never achieve. Stealth, speed, jumppower, eyes which enables her to see in the dark and the fastest hand movements you have never seen before. She possesses all. The most terrifying fact is that she's only 17 years old. We don't know what her limitations will be when she's grown up.

    She's suspected to always wear some kind of hat and a white sleeve at her
    back to hide her cat ears and tail. Most people who have seen her running only remember 3 white sleeves. It's like the wind is coming by.

    She's hard to chase because of her movement speed, high jumping ability and ability to turn sharp corners without reducing speed. (like in the picture)

    Another ability her father didn't had was...
    The ability to distract males, she's a women...

    Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuch nicer topic. Lots of stuff here to grab a hold of, plus open enough to take it where you envision it. I think there will be a lot of participation this week.

    All in

    Oh yes I am making sure to make an entry this round... ok here is my real entry I tried to think of an animal that would make a good thief but wasn't done yet. Here it is.
    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    Odo Oswald Oakenthral;
    Odo's childhood was much like any other normal childhood. He spent his early years playing with his father games of hide and go seek guards and robbers and how to pick the lock to his crib. As the years went past the games became more and more serious, and these games became training. For Odo Owswald oakenthral was the only son of the master thief known as the Gray Shadow. Odo's father marveled at his son's abilities of guile and soon he became so good that he finally retired and let Odo take the role of master thief.

    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.
    Kerchi, a k'ang ga foo, was born in to a family of thieves and has known the art of thievery since he could walk. His padded shoes, small size (4 feet 8 inches), and many tools help him get in and out of any operation. Normally Kerchi heists diamond museums, but the occational gold ruby studded ballard can tickle his fancy.

    mainloop -
    the link to those animals snatching things from people(other than being cute..) is a great deal of help, man. seriously - it somehow captures the body language and attitude of these creatures, which can be used largely when painting this round`s character.

    so thank you, mate.

    artdwx - great drawing. i like it alot. maybe you could manage to fortify the colors and lighting in PS or Painter...?

    We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.

    did a complete 180 with my idea. Story coming in a bit. Damn, there's some fabulous entries here.

    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    Who'd ever guess that mild mannered, cross-eyed Arthus McKinley was really the city's most notorious thief: the Chameleon.
    His father spent a small fortune (though nothing compared to the collection Arthur's amassed over the years) creating the perfect hybrid of man and animal. With the ability to blend into the background, hang upside down with the use of his tail, and a sticky tongue for grabbing goodies Arthur is an unparalleled thief.

    I saw a squid show on DiscoveryHD last week and have wanted to draw something with Cephalopods ever since.
    Here's my drawing. I hope to have it fully painted before the deadline but I might not make it.

    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    And here's the final:

    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    As shipping routes were first being established in the eastern Mediterranean, a timid aquatic civilization was being displaced by the growing traffic and trade. In a hopeless attempt to preserve their secluded way of life, these Cephalopodic humanoids conducted raids on port markets. The Octopus men were perfectly adapted for thievery with skin that could morph color and texture to blend in with all the rich patterns of the bazaar and a tentacle for every tasty morsel. Regrettably, as much as they stole and sabotaged, it was not enough to stem the surging tide of commerce.

    I finished up, and it's before midnight somewhere in the Pacific, so I think I'm good. Some of the lemur was from ref. The background still needs work, but that's all for tonight.

    Beware the lemur footpads when travelling among the great cities of the Raining Isles. Fleet of claw and able to bound great distances, they can ambush from any angle. Be especially careful if you are wearing flashy jewelry or shining mail, for they are known to covet all reflective objects.

    Finished-
    CHOW#37 - Thief - Human/Animal mix.

    Bob Kane took his inspiration for batman from a more tangible source than he would have people believe. At a young age his family home was broken into through the skylight by a diminuitive, cowled stranger. Bob was the only person to actually see the creature, being unable to sleep because of the storm outside. He caught a glimpse of a snout-like face and huge twitching ears before the thief dove through a third story window, arms full of jewellery.
