Character Sheets and character creation →

thatfrenchhelper:

When creating a character, there’s a lot of questions you ask yourself. Whether it’s an original character or one you’ve been playing for a long time, using a character sheet to get to know your character better can always be a nice idea. With its help, you’ll be able to think about things you didn’t necesarily thought about, and ask some important questions to yourself that might activate your character’s voice, or help you to get your muse back with them. Everyone has their favorite character sheets, some people prefer to have a lot of questions, some others like it a bit more vague, so here’s a masterlist of the character sheets I found on various websites and found quite interesting, plus some other things that could be used to help you see, for example, how other character view yours. 

With these sheets, you could also try to find your character’s Jung and Enneagram Type or use the Moral Alignment tool. All of these things can be really useful to get a better grip on a character.

Then, if you’re trying to create a character, and do not have many ideas, or get stuck, I’d suggest for you to roam around TVTropes, which gives you a lot of tropes used for character creation. Maybe you could try to mix a few of these and create an original character?

Or, if you’re a skillful writer and know how to make your character different from another, make a list of characters in fiction you happen to find interesting and why. Try to keep it short. Then, maybe, try to mix and match things from two or three characters, take a character and change their backstory, to see what would change. Play with them to inspire yourself and create something new, original and truly yours.

Oh, and here’s a little guide to Mary-Sues and OCs, just in case you want to make sure your character isn’t going to become a Mary-Sue or a Gary-Stu

And last but not least, this article about building fictional character definitely seemed interesting to me, and is full of many other links that could guide you during the creating of your character and help you file one of these sheets.

Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature)
1899-1904
by Ernst Haeckel

If you go here you can see 100 of these in enormous sizes. In German, but you can figure it out.

Anonymous sent: Do you have any resources or books with merpeople?

fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment:

I certainly do, although not much. From the looks of things, you might need to get your most detailed information out of books. Here’s what I have:

Guides/Articles

Otherkin/Merpeople

Books

Videos

Other

The fake Animal Planet documentary is flooded with criticism, but I think it’s inspirational/entertaining if nothing else. Also note it includes the notion of a corpse being secured and dissected, for those where such a trigger warning would apply.

As for the MerNetwork and such… the reason I’ve linked these sites is because members of the MerNetwork are likely to know way more on this topic than anybody else. There’s always a chance you could find interesting or inspirational discussions on these sites. That said, be respectful and kind and remember you’re not entitled to anything from anyone. Generally, we have lovely followers and I know the majority of people don’t set out to hurt others, but  if you find you’re really unable to suppress the urge to share a negative opinion, do it somewhere out of the way and please don’t send in asks about it either. Although it’s of my understanding that merpeople are not otherkin, there are some correlations in regards to lifestyle and beliefs, which is why I have included ‘Otherkin’ in the title (plus, some may identify as otherkin, whereas some may not).

Otherwise, that’s all I can think of in terms of researching merpeople. I hope this helps (and if I’ve caused offence in any way, please let me know…)

Cool Mixer Brush Techniques for Photoshop Painting

An interesting technique for the mixer brush in Photoshop, picked it up from Mathias Verhasselt, a fantastic artist who works at Blizzard. You should follow him on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mverhasselt/

Presenting the magic of the mixer brush from PS CS5 and upwards. Sadly CS4 doesn’t have this feature. A very interesting video which gives a great deal of insight into industry methods. These are tricks and shortcuts to painting normally. As always, it’s best to have a firm understanding of the basics before you depend solely upon these methods.
