Sometimes it seems that a choice of characters for a contemporary artist (at least for a digital one) has narrowed down to a dozen or so, highlighting a super-cool-bodybuilder-warrior, a super-sexy-female-warrior, a wizard, a monster, a cartoon, a robot and a few more… Besides, the human character is very likely to be in the age of 25-40, with a face freed from most emotional signs… I don’t mind any of those plots, I’d just like to remember that there are some other – so below goes a rough list of ideas for creating a character, mostly based on a register of professions.
