character description

How do you describe your characters?

All at once, the first time we see them, or in dribs and drabs? Or never at all?

How specific are you? As specific as the story requires? On what elements do you tend to focus? (It changes every time is an acceptable answer.)

As a reader, do you prefer being told exactly how a character looks, or do you prefer to imagine them yourself? Does it annoy you when a description does not match your mental picture?
