Woah... I was able to design 6 characters on 1 day...
I definitely think the idea of 'combination' monsters is a neat concept-- Vampider is definitely my favorite of the bunch, and though I'm a bit eh on her having actual bat-wing arms I think she and Gum have the best designs. Also, since she's a slime & a ghost, which both have shapeshifting abilities, wouldn't that mean she could give herself a nose?

and speaking of combination monsters, I thought about combining a Dryad (one of the only non-standard fae I'm personally aware of) with something,
which made me think about Scooby-Doo Meets Batman (where I learned about the Dryad from),
wherein Joker & Penguin dress up as a Dryad & a Troll, respectively,
which made me think of Penguin's "they will find it's not a toll bridge, but a troll bridge" line (top kek, btw),
which led me to make this picture.
I know that was a lot of pathway changes to get where we are, but if I didn't go through all that this image's being here would make no sense.

Interestingly, SDMB's depiction of a dryad seems to be an atypical interpretation. However, since it's the only thing where the word's been even remotely relevant for me, it's what I know.
Luckily for you, the real interpretation of what a dryad is appears to be a human-looking creature who's super shy and is very attached to the tree it draws its vigor from, to where it dies if the tree does. If that isn't asking to be made into a cute-ass monster girl I don't know what is.

Okay, so 1.5 hours later (I paused typing mid-sentence and decided to go into MS Paint), and the drawing is finished; Dryad girl.
Everything was done in MS Paint by hand, so I'm really impressed with myself when it comes to the shading-- just look at that mystery plant life over at the far right!

Fuckin' yikes!!
Those sound like names for those Weebles Wobble ripoff "bean" things from 2005 that looked like slightly larger pill bottles, the ones whose designs were made purposefully disgusting.
Looks like I was right on the money with "Gum (Guh sound from ghost, uh sound from mummy, and mm sound from slime)" These combonsters are too good for that. Seriously though, even though it's "accurate," so to speak, that... last one... is literally-- I cna't bring myself to type it out and the fact that it's that revolting has me smiling like an idiot. I hate it but I don't. Either way, I'd still recommend a bit of revision if you want these characters to catch on.
It'd also be cool to see some crimson incorporated into Vampider's design, for the bat arms, perhaps, to go with the lavender skin, rather than full-on violet. On the whole, you've got something really neat and inspired here but some areas need work.

...the only way I could be even remotely comfortable reciting the name Bloodburp is if it's in the context of a big burly bodyguard counterpart, who kind of acts like a mirror image, but like, with the bits that are zombie, vampire, & spider swapped around a bit? *leaves to make an ms paint doc*

you know like uh

I've never tried designing a monster before, but uh.
Not entirely fleshed out because I couldn't decide on what the main body should look like besides the overall shape.

I've also finally came up with names for these two alien girlies.
1548561163609.png

The left one is Colbixanethrelingastrids, or Colbi. The right one is Viccolvilphuriezervistrud, or Vic. They're more familiar with Earthen language and customs than Varli, so I wanted to give them long names as Varli has a short, simpler name.

For the sake of irony, I assume?

Made a couple out of my Animal Crossing people.
First one is based on one I had in the GameCube Animal Crossing in first grade.
She looked like this:
Female_Player.gif

But I made a black and yellow striped pattern and had her wear it.
My character, Bea.
17 - 1 (4).png

This drawing is almost 2 years old. I was too lazy to make a new drawing of her, so I pulled up an old one.
Plus, here hair is more purple than that indigo or blue color because when I had her back then, I thought she had purple hair, and even back in the day I drew her and used purple for her hair whenever I colored.

This lil girlie's from the past. Not like centuries ago, she's still alive, just not very little anymore. But still not an adult yet.

Next is based on my current New Leaf character.
20190213_200430~2.jpg

Lovin her looks so much, I wanted to make a character out of her. And I finally did.
My new character who goes by "Cinnamon Superb."

Fedoras are sorta hard for me to draw.

This teen is big for her "voice of an angel." And she's got a preteen cousin named Marcel who's a big DJ. She often tags along with him on his DJing duties. I gotta get to designing him.

A couple more alien gals
1550625156676.png

This is Trimmie. She's Xabby's species and no magical thing will be dissected on her watch!

1550536022875.png

And this is Charlene (I wanted her to have a human name that probably isn't one that'll go all that good with an alien). She lives with a family whose house is haunted by a ghost who was a member of said family. Only Charlene knows who the ghost is and they do talk to each other.
