how do you show Dignity/Cham/Ferocity or Instinct/Cunning/Strength etc.
Its just a format which you can use /edit to keep it in nice overview

Those are part of the character background, or personal characteristics if they affect the visual appearance.

I'm just saying that your format could be better, because at the moment it reads as "random thing 1, random thing 2, ..." and that doesn't really facilitate the issue in any way. There's a logical division between different characteristics as I listed, those that belong to the character itself, those that belong to his armor, those that belong to his equipment and so on. Breaking them down along the natural lines helps with making the request and also with completing it.

True. Maybe bulleted items such as:

Distinguishing marks
Skin/fur color/pattern
Eye color
Favorite color pallette
Armor/clothing style
One word summation of personality (can help with posing or the mood of the image)
Equipment (including weapons and other non-armor doodads)

If I may make a strange request, I'd like to see is anyone can help me design armor for my little necromancer Asura that would suit her. I have a bit of a "base" that anyone could work off of, if they're interested. This way, even the not-so-Artistically-inclined folks can participate:

Another great piece of art. :D

I may as well put one of my characters into the mix a bit more officially.

Request from: Rustmane
Character Name: Rivva
Race: Asura
Gender: Female
Profession: Thief
Bio/Important Feature 1: She is a "Professor of Ancient Bookah Studies" ... put shortly, she is an archaeologist
Bio/Important Feature 2: Typically dresses in colors appropriate to her environment. White and tan for the desert, dark colors and warm clothes for the colder places.
Bio/Important Feature 3: Has a poofy curly brunette ponytail with random locks escaping
Bio/Important Feature 4: Likes to lug around "dumb brutes" for the manual labor while she does the "brain work", so feel free to make up some poor hired hands for her to ignore and boss around
Bio/Important Feature 5: Wields a pistol and dagger for most of her fighting
Bio/Important Feature 6: In general, she likes to appear level-headed, intelligent, and classy at all times.... despite her penchant for shooting her pistol in the air to get attention. Or the fact that she isn't level-headed at all.

I am terrible at drawing asura, so if anyone wants to give her a shot, that'd be awesome.

Working on it but I don't draw during weekends, and anyway, you're so accomplished yourself that people may be hesitant to take the challenge.

Asuran gladiator armor with a sword + dagger combo ok with you?

Oh, where is your glasses?  Put them on, it will make the world seem more 3-D.

Lovely drawing.  Especially love the armor and the pose.  Won't mind seeing girl model in that pose, if you know what I am saying....(what I am saying is that I can't draw such find dynamic pose, so won't mind to see a model pose it so can trace it)

As your have is fine.   realistic mid-size.  I don't have a good graphics card, so can't put too much memory in jigga-physics.

Hi all!
It would be so cool for me who can't draw (accident to right hand) to receive an art of a generous pixel artist.
I'm searching for a landscape, more specificely the GW2 charr territories, around Ascalon.
I let the artist to his own imagination, it's always what gives the best results!
There may be some wind riders (who are magnificient) or any element which pick up the look.

Thank you very much!

I was sketching my Charr and decided it would be the perfect scene for Rustmane's last request, his Asura, Rivva. I can see the scene going a bit like this..
