Two of my characters, Anushka and Viktor, with a classmate's character (the sick girl). We had to create 'em off random words. I got fuzzy, Russian, and abstract and used them as an excuse to draw furry monster things. Viktor's inspired by the mythical Slavic chuhaister, a forest giant (apparently they're super awful-looking but sweet to humans and help fight off evil faeries).
Anushka's wearing fur boots. She doesn't have giant tarantula feet.
