Given the fact I'm planning to make a short animation to advance a little more in my Maya skills, I need a character or characters to model and eventually animate. I've been tinkering over 2 days about that now, with absolutely no results but some old doodle characters I had a bunch of years ago.

So I want to ask the forum people to help me out here! Let me see how creative you really are!

There are a few pointers:
- The character should not be too complex. I'm a beginning modeler and I don't really have epic skills in modeling. Plus, simplicity is kind of my style in 3D.
- The character also needs to be able to move. It needs arms and legs, I'd prefer a face as well for some emotion.
- The style doesn't really matter. It can be either human, robotic, animal or a combination. Anything is welcome.
- Please refrain from posting well-known, existing or copyrighted characters.

Both existing pictures as self-drawn pictures are appreciated. Please link the image if it's too big.
Please note if it's a style suggestion (and of course what that suggestion is about) or a full character idea and if it's by you or by someone else.

Here are those 'doodle' characters (Kuro & Kami) I was talking about:
First drawn image of K&K final 'design'.
Several 'badguys' and a girl for some reason.
Kuro and Kami on a floating rock with Mogu.

I hope you guys can inspire me!

Does my OC count? Also, you've got some nice drawing skills right there! :)

I'm trying not to get something copyrighted or well known on my hands. So basically it cuts all ponies, even OC's of them or any other series.
Secretly I was already planning to model your OC sometime, but I doubt I'll have time soon, as my focus lies more on learning Maya at the moment. However, it would just be a static model (in a position suggested by you).
I've been suggested to follow classes by my father and he suggested one of the best known art-schools in my country. And I want to start such a thing well prepared. I'm basically going all in on it, if it continues.
Non-the-less, I still would want to model your character sometime. So you'll hear from me someday...

Actually I am not trying to get something which is copyright or well known character. Basically we can not create character in the game because we need some permission form the admin and all this things are copy rights. You can create new character and suggest admin.

Welcome to the forums. Also, we're not talking about Mari0. Jorichi just needs a custom character so he can draw and such.

EDIT: Also, please, just please use grammar.

Definitely not my forte.
Though I'd suggest taking the characters from Twatter Story. The characters are pretty dynamic...

I thought of that, and I pretty much like that idea. I was even considering doing a decent 'scene' from Twatter story.
But my problem is more the visual character design then their story or personality.
But I never managed to actually think of a simple visual design for the characters in Twatter story, simplicity just doesn't seem to work for Twatter story in my opinion...

My charecter is pretty simple. A cool scene would be getting the choas emerald from 513.

By the way, a note for my character, the reason why he's holding on to his stomech...  is because he's bleeding, I think. ...

- He is not human
- He has wings
- He doesn't have arms
- He can walk
- He can float
- I drew him in real life, then drew him in MS paint.

The guy on my icon is my character. His name is Stan the Stick.
-He has an advanced portal gun dropped in an Aperture Science testing incident. It shoots 4 portals.
-He runs a lot.
-He usually has a straight face or gets confused.

EDIT: Oh fiddles. I think I just necrobumped a topic. :<
