Character Design Challenge #184- Shocking! – Results

Well this was a tough one. Very hard to whittle these entries down this week, and I have changed my mind half a dozen times already, and will undoubtedly again after posting this! So here goes nothing...

Honorable mention go to Cliff's Thor and Worf''s Lightning Girl.
