Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,

Installment III - The Squids Are Alright, the Inklings of Splatoon
Nobody knows for sure what Inklings are, exactly. Some argue that they're kids. Others argue that they're squids. And others still claim that they're both. Well, wahtever the case, Inklings are known for being mischievous, with a strong desire to splatter their ink, everywhere.
...Heads out of the gutters, ya pervs.
All joking aside, Nintendo's newest additions seem like they would fit well into the world of Smash Bros. They're colorful, they have quirky means of combat, and their game is doing well. Like, really well. Is it early to consider these guys for the newest installment of Smash Bros.? Probably, but let's keep in mind that Nintendo isn't bashful about showing off new (or at least relatively-new) IPs in Smash Bros. They did so with the Wii U version's Woolly World stage and the 3DS version's Tomodachi Life stage
Dream Arena: Project Elemental - Story and Setting
"Of all human powers operating on the affairs of mankind, none is greater than that of competition."
Competition on the Rise
Once a year, the best and the brightest flock to Zodiac City for the Masters of Combat Tournament, the most-celebrated martial arts tournament around. This multi-day, multi-man fighting tournament attracts all comers from all walks of life, and for many reasons. Some fight for honor, others for dignity, but many of them fight for the tournament's massive pot bonus, believed to be the largest of any tournament out there.
This tournament has the potential to bring people together...or break them apart. For one person with eyes on a particular group of individuals, she hopes to break their long-standing bonds once and for all. With help from strong participants unaware of her plans, she just might pull it off...
Greetings from Zodiac City!
Spanning across six districts and arranged in a starlike shape, Zodiac City
Dream Arena: Runaway Rumble - Story and Setting
"The world is a fine place worth fighting for, and I would very much hate to leave it."
~Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls
An Unknown World...
There is a story that has been passed down by the many inhabitants of Pixalia. A story that tells of how this world was created. It is told in many ways, but the main story remains the same throughout.
Long ago, the world was but a barren void. Lacking of any sort of life, this was more than enough to draw the attention of the great goddess of origin, Lady Genesis. She had lived for centuries, creating worlds from nothing. But alas, as much as she wanted to breathe new life into this world, her power was slowly fading. To circumvent this, she used what little power she had left to create three beings from her person. Lady Genesis gave them one simple task: Breathe new life into this dead world, make it so that it shall prosper for all time.
And so they did.
First was Terran, the strong one, whose great strength bl
When Your Boyfriend Becomes a RapistSuddenly, your world is turned upside down,
as you try to pinpoint that night when shit
Your boyfriend went to a party, that much you know,
it happened one evening,
about a month ago.
He asked you to join him, but you declined,
for you had a test the next day,
so he left you behind.
“Is it okay to go?” He ask shyly,
and you give him permission.
Because he needs your permission for everything.
And now things have changed.
Some girl claimed “rape”,
and suddenly your boyfriend
has a slandered name.
And suddenly you're the girl who sleeps with a rapist,
and now your a rape apologist,
because your boyfriend is NOT a rapist.
You know him, you've known him for as long
as you can remember.
Before he was your boyfriend, you considered him a family member.
But now they're marching on the campus,
holding banners and shit.
Trying to expel him from the campus for something
that they think he did.
And suddenly you're a traitor of your own sex,
Fan Fiction: The Crossover Allstars Chapter 1Prologue – Chapter 1: The Day Everything Changed
Narrator: Colleen Clinkenbeard (Voice of Yuko Ichihara)
There exists a world where reality and fiction are collided and imagination lives freely. This is the world, you may know as Fan Fiction. It is the home of many lives, both old and new, as those from cartoons, anime, games, and others strive together. Our world had been at peace, until one day everything changed...
An organization swept through our world and began to overrun it. Many had tried to rebel but there was no success. With the organization's complete control spread across, Fan Fiction's inhabitants had no choice but to give in to their new resign lives while very few resistances were now considered outcasts. With what little hope left, our existence still carries on this day…
In a suburban neighborhood, a young man leaves his house to start off the day. He had slightly long ebony hair with bangs in front, green eyes and wore casual clothes, a blue unbutt
Fictional CharactersFictional characters are who we meet,
as we read the pages of a book.
We fall in love with them,
For their traits, and lives, despite not even knowing how they look.
Chivalrous, courageous, villainous and vile,
We each pick and choose who we like.
For these characters are more than you think,
when a reader invites them into their life.
Time and again, we’re told it’s fake,
That the stories, and tales don’t exists.
That the characters we love who fight monsters and dragons,
vanish when the story ends.
I know it sounds crazy, to say that for me,
A fictional character is real.
That I see him as more, than a page in a book
he’s something that I can touch and feel.
For many who read, create their own worlds,
because reality is just too much to take.
When life gets confusing, stressful or tragic
we feel like we just want to break.
There’s no one to comfort us, not even our friends,
nor family, can understand what’s inside.
Because in actuality, though it
A Fan Fiction Christmas Vacation Chapter 10Later that night in the lodge, Rex, Raptor, Taco, and Mature prepared for the night before Christmas as they managed to decorate the reformed Christmas tree, with the last being the star on top, all four standing up on each other keeping their balance until…
“Almost have it!” Rex said holding Raptor over his shoulders to steadily place the star right on top.
“We did it!” Mature jumped cheering with the other three falling right off his back luckily landing on the couch behind them.
“Wow! We did really good job señor Rex, Raptor, and Mature.” Taco complimented.
Eventually other guests in the lodge who didn’t attended the ballroom party gathered around the Christmas tree in awe by the four OC’s hard work like David and the rest of his OC’s, the Bebop crew, Shinobu and her ninja clan, Kaleido Stage, the Marines, and many more.
“Wow you guys! You really out did yourselves this time.” David acknowledged his childho
