Being a major contrabandista, he tends to avoid cameras - yours will be the first pic of him.
Unless the pic is just a huge sombrero covering everything :). This will be interesting.

Coyote from the Oolite Saga. I'm somehow amazed that Cody has not said a word about it so far, since this OXP screams for it.
Well here is my rendition of the Legendary Coyote:

...wearing a faded black shipsuit and a beaten-up sombrero, the man was of mixed heritage and it showed in his features... a blend of Hispanic and Anglo with a touch of Chinese. Lean and wiry, of medium height and sporting a mane of thick black hair with full beard to match...
I thought I came pretty close to the discription.

No disrespect meant.

This particular legend might be too legendary to illustrate. I wonder how would some sort of silhouette with a trademark sombrero work?

About YAH. An even number of ads are needed, since they are paired. With Coyote there are 21 posters, so any inspiration for making one more? Perhaps something Shulthian?

I'll work something up.
I have no clue what a Shulthian is and a Google search doesn't either. lol

:lol: Shulth is a character from Oolite Saga. Something very mechanical. There's some reference to the family in the Caduceus entry in Oolite wiki.

The Shulth will require more reading of fiction - one of ClymAngus' characters. Like Coyote, he was borrowed by Drew for the second half of the Oolite Saga (books 3 and 4, I think). The forum search plug-in may be of use to you, btw. As for Coyote's pic: put a pair of aviator sunglasses on him, thicken (and perhaps shorten) his hair, make the beard full-faced, and add a smoke hanging from his lip. He is one who would be wanted for one crime only, btw - smuggling on an industrial scale.

Okay this is starting to get tedious.
Main of hair, means full and long.
Sorry,,,. Getting frustrated, thought I followed the discription well.

<grins> Stay cool, man - it's only a pic, only a suggestion. Do or don't do - it's your choice.

Okay here is the last one:
Shulthian are a biomechanical race, had from freaky creatures to android looking cyborgs to pic from.
I decided to go with a humanoid bust.
