I like Geralt, The White Wolf of Rivia.

P.S. I didn't read all the other comments so if I just repeated previous responses then I guess I'm not alone.

But, I have to have a character that's high enough level to get them, so that means females first. I COULD just use the console to change sex for the screenshots, but it takes me an hour or two to get the exact face I want on a new character, and, well, screw that, I'm not going to do that each time I want to take a screenshot.
Mind you, I'm also not completely sold on the "sex sells" idea either. Most of the ones for Skyrim were in a renaissance jack of plates armour, followed by a couple in full plate. Not the least, because I like my armour realistic when I play the game, and my character concepts tend to be more like elegant than fan service, so chances are I won't have a chain bikini in the backpack at the moment. Or to put it otherwise, my female character concepts are more along the lines of brain surgeon: giving free lobotomies in .44 magnum, courtesy of Messrs Smith and Wesson, purveyors of fine brain surgery implements since 1852 Or in Skyrim with a flanged gothic mace.
Then there is the problem that well, while Bethesda is truly egalitarian: everyone is butt-ugly, regardless of gender, race, faction affiliation, religious beliefs, etc the modders are not. People come up with better female faces (I don't care much about the improved bodies, since, as I was saying, there's not much of that visible) months or even years before some equal quality male faces. Well, according to my tastes, anyway. In Fallout, I even ended up doing my own male faces mod, because none of the existing ones were exactly what I wanted.
Haircuts too. While technically there are fairly equal numbers of male and female haircuts in mods, IMHO most of those are rather niche. I mean, I'm not dissing them. If you want a Sephiroth-style bishounen guy, then you're well taken care of. A few of other concepts too. But I kinda find it hard to get one that looks right for the kind of male characters I have in mind. I guess it's a matter of culture too. You don't need any particular justification to put an elaborate coiffure on a female. If you want a perm or bangs or pigtails or whatever, it just looks good. On most males it just looks out of place in the modern day western culture
So again, if I want some good looking character to pose my weapons on, females are the easy option.

I play as male and make them either bad ass good, pure evil or honourable good. The only reason why I'd play as a female is something different I guess to what I usually play but I would keep at it.
