I have been bouncing around this site discussing character developement here and there.  I thought it would be nice to have a group devoted to the subject.  I just started one called Characters.  Please drop by, start a discussion, let's get the ball rolling.

Okay, here's one for you. Describe something about this woman. What is she thinking? What kind of past does she have? What do you think her story is? etc., etc.

I used to use character sheets but that changed to my clipping pictures from magazines and later to my remembering certain physical characteristics and developing their personality from there. My characters aren't the type to be Photoshopped. The flaws are far more appealing for me as a writer and I deal with it from there. Supporting characters seems easier to develop and that can be a challenge in keeping the reader interested in the main character.

Have you checked out L. A. Howard's post on Character Sheets?  How much pre-planning do you do for your main characters?  I'm a lazy person but am beginning to understand the value of knowing more about the protagonist and villain before writing the first chapter.
