this isn't a poll - it's a reminder
Frankenstiens monster, could be male or female.

A humanoid creature sentient with personality.
Pick two creatures - ie Drow & Orc = Dorc or Squirrel & Ogre = Squogre.
design a character based on the 2 parent creatures traits and build your character.
The Feline Merchant:
A cat that rides a top a magical chifferobe that produces whatever item you want. It is pulled by an ostrich sized kakapo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakapo He sells his wares to anyone who will buy them ( most people cannot afford it though). If you have no money he will allow to take an item but you must do something for him in return in a certain amount of time. He magically appears when the time is up. If you don't finish the favor he will turn you into an item in the chifferobe.
The sexy trickster :
A good looking man who lures pretty females to his lair. He makes them dolls in his doll collection and uses them in traveling plays.
The jilted superhero:
Can be male or female. This hero's powers suck like the power over gravy or the power to read the minds of mice. This hero tried out for a team of hero's but was turned down.

Dorian Gray - from "the picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde, at any stage of his life: as the young innocent lad, the cruel sinner, or as he gazes a last time at his portrait.
I've just read Terry Pratchet til it's come out of my ears...hope it's not too specific but it's interesting.
How about: Lord Samuel Vimes and Lady Sybil Vimes
Commander Samuel Vimes of the watch - a simple copper of the street who married a lady now he has to begrudgingly dress up in all the regalia of a lord and parade around like a ninny when all he wants is to walk his beat...
Lady Sybil - a noble woman from an old family of Ankh-Morpork who breads and looks after orphaned dragons, space isn't a problem though when the nervous blow themselves up at feeding time...
I guess, another round will be Oberon..:-)
to Dubious - well...don´t thin so...look back - Sherlock Holmes followed by Watson, 2 goblins
I thought this would be a good modern character.
Katya, the Soviet-era KGB experiment gone horribly wrong/right. Her design should express her fanatical fealty to the state, her simple origins and her monstrous power.
A cheezy fantasy pinup lady, set in a cheezy enviroment.
I'm talking unicorns, Dolphins swiming in space, wolves, Full moons, white tigers drinking from a lake that has a reflection, but wait it's not a reflection it's the universe. wow - deep meaning hippie stuff. have another toke on the pipe.
The trick would be to make it cheezy but to still be inticing and interesting.
The Nain Rouge, French for "red dwarf" or "red gnome" is a mythical creature that originated in Normandy, France, as a type of lutin. In the United States, it haunts Detroit, Michigan, United States and feared by its residents as "the harbinger of doom." The Nain Rouge appears as a small child-like creature with red or black fur boots. It is also said to have "blazing red eyes and rotten teeth." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nain_Rouge
Bogeyman would be interesting. Or Minotaur maybe?
Or Hercules maybe? Or some greek good. Hades for example?

"Art cannot be modern, art is eternal." Egon Schiele.
Here's a character:
Diden the emo pirate. His appearance does not look out of place, only his character. He is afraid of the ocean/sea and doesn't fit in with the rest of the pirates because his motifs and values are vastly different from theirs. He enjoys solitude and loves the night, but he does not flee the company of other pirates, who seem to ignore his strangeness (note: they don't ignore him though). A story could also be added with the illustration.
This character is my own creation, so you won't be able to google him
i second lilith
and Elric of Melniboné - albino anti hero who wields a great black sword that is the most evil being in existence. my favorite books
Spiral out keep going!
the world-eater... a cosmic being, giant, like the Marvel Comics Galactus
redesign a Spider-man villain?
ringwraith from the Lord of the Rings?
explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) technician?
giantess, beautiful and interacting with a tiny, maybe even imperceptible (to her) world... I think would involve maybe a close-up (second drawing) of the little people)...?
redesign the giant from the brave little tailor?
inhabitant of the Matrix - (yes, the movie- like, a "ghost", a "werewolf", a "zombie"...)
edit: removed by daestwen. I'm a little sad you would encourage that.

I am a little sorry to actually have to make an announcement to this effect, but
A suggestion thread does not give you excuse for rude, inappropriate or racist comments.
Any of these will be immediately deleted, and second offenses will be passed on to the admins to be dealt with.
I do not take myself very seriously. I am not out to attack you or anyone else who doesn't deserve it.
If I meant any offense, I meant it towards jackasses who think the meme is funny.
back on the suggestions....
Pirate Fairy! a friend suggested it to me and I thought it could be a lot of fun
Self-portrait as the opposite gender seems interesting.
I'm here to admire art and learn how to be a better artist.
Since we have done the dark side now, how about the light side? Jedi-master?
The Hiroshima Lovers
A couple whose loving union, whether pure or not, will bring about great destruction.
And of course, with the birth of the artist came the inevitable afterbirth - the critic.
As #150 is coming up, how 'bout we do "daestwen, the host of the CHOW"...
I think it would be funny to see, how everyone imagines the sometimes stressed out but always friendly moderator of one of the coolest activities in the art-world as a character.
It's up to you, what is in the brief... maybe some little referral to Medusa, your boss
Or we'll do Poshspice or Oregano... or no name at all, if you're more comfortable with that...
