Here's the first drawing of a long series of character designs i've been working on.

This character is loosely inspired by Maja Ivarrson of The Sounds and The Chainsaw Massacre.

Stay tuned for other character designs!
----------------

EDIT - Tweaked her arms so they're not as long. They're still pretty lanky, i know =[
Also made the glowing parts a bit brighter

I probably seen this character study sheet years ago and now this one looks like Taylor Swift.

Her face is actually based on Maja Ivarsson from The Sounds. But Taylor Swift works too :)

"my colouring isn't great"

I call bullshit! :D You have great style bro, and earned yourself a watch from me. Would love to see your take on some Marvel characters if you ever have an itching to do some. Keep up the good work.

It is safe to publish your own designs without the fear of them being robbed by some guy and then used in another country, project, etc... DA offers some kind of protection to that? at least you can say that they are original of yours if something like that happens? I want to upload my own designs but I'm a little afraid

this might sound crazy, but i've learned to not care as much. my designs/inspirations are a combination of other people's work. nothing out there will be 100% original. some of my designs stem from inspiration from other DA users' original characters as well. 

this is just my opinion though :p

Ehhh, honestly, I would be more intimidated if those were real chainsaws.
