i really think all of these would work, Goblins have always been described as being pretty divers looking mostly because it was originally a blanket term for mischievous little creatures, that being said i think all of these look like the could be the same species but express different genetics, much like humans and dogs.
In fact, i imagine that goblins were originally breed for different things by some evil master, seeing as they are the go to fantasy canon fodder bad guy, evil over lords bred them to look different like dogs, possibly to differentiate them from other evil overlords goblin armies. But they never became too divers that they became different species.
Then, all the evil over lords were defeated, the goblins were left homeless and just sort of re-mingled and diversified. Of course this is all just pure imagination that i got from looking at your wonderful art.
That being said, all of what i just typed would make an interesting back story for goblin folk in a fantasy novel or something, really explore who goblins are beyond typical dungeon baddies. Or maybe i'v just been up for too long.
anywho, great art, really great work.

You don't see too many female designs for goblins. I like the ones you made!

Who say Goblin can't be sexy.

I LOVE what you did here. You melded a bestial, nocturnal animal to them, but at the same time, they are unmistakably feminine. I especially like the bottom left and bottom middle ones. Neither is very "human", but both have a sort of dangerous, feral attraction to them. Love them!

This is fantastic. Love the concepts, coloring and facial characteristics!

These ladies are so cute! It is so great and refreshing that you make them more beastly than generic lady faced, which is always a problem in female character designs of fantasy races. I am in love.
MaximeRune Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
Reminds of the art for the Spiderwick Chronicles book series. I like this! :)

What an unfortunate series of noses
UlaFish Featured By Owner May 31, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
The noses are my favorite part :D

Seconding this. I really love the touch of bat anatomy :)
carouselclover Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Student General Artist
They're all so awesome! I especially love the top right one and the bottom left one. :D

Very interesting conceptual designs, I never thought that goblins could be so neat looking.
definitively an instant :+fav:
Leyly Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
Ok, so, seriously - I can't get these out of my head! They look so lovely, so goblin-y, so exquisite! I want them to be used in an awesome game so that I can enjoy them there and be happy. :<
These are wonderful designs with so much character. I love how you played with different shapes and (hair) styles. I'd also very much like to see full body designs of those ladies! ;)

interesting and lovable goblin faces you managed to keep their goblin-esh while making them cute too :yum:
SinjaAussiaAngels Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great designs. These female goblins are pretty and ugly at the same time. :)
civilizedsavagery Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I like how they have a bat-like feel
UlaFish Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist

Thank you!

I adore your goblins! :O Bats are amongs my favourite animals and how you have fused them with the conventional goblin looks is nothing short of genious! :D
UlaFish Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
haha! Thank you. The connection between goblins and bats seemed so natural to me that I was kind of afraid it's been done before.
Edge-sama Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Not that I have seen it anywhere :) different species of bat-humanoid, but never Chiroptera Goblinidae.
illo-inc Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
A great variety of concepts and shapes. Each one has it's own virtues.
ShaudaySmith Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
There's a wonderful bat inspiration here. I can see a different species working on each of them, from the fringes, to the noses, to the ears... Personally, i would have to say the top left is my favourite because i love the distorted nose and low set angled eyes. The deep red coloring to the eyes also add a classic "jim henson" style goblin art that beckons to my childhood.. sorry, lovely concepts, simply lovely.
Maija Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Professional General Artist
Love the bottom middle one - the colors work so well together, and the ears are so lovely and intricate. I also like the bottom right one with the hooked nose and the lowered ears.
OHdomiNOEZ Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
love love love the bottom left! :)

I dont know if its proper to call a goblin pretty.... but they are all just so pretty :) I love it!
Tuume Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012   Writer
Beautiful. The bottom left is really speaking to me. I love her nose and ears.
Alecueous Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Professional General Artist
They look like bats! And very sinister bats, too.
Lorrain Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
And somehow they still manage to be atractive...
