This is part of a project I call as MAP (Mystery Art Project). I come up with some topics for each part and have people vote for the subject; the catch is that they don't know the actual choices until the final results are up.
For this one, I chose Original Characters - I created a forum thread over at the Projects section asking for anyone who wanted a chance to get their OC drawn by me. Once I have a good amount of characters, I randomly select six for the poll. The finalists are the ones you see in this drawing.
I'm going to hold another OC MAP soon, so you'll get your chance to enter any OC you have. ^_^
