So, a lot of the character reference questionnaires I find on tumblr are amazing with content and horrible when it comes to actually filling them out. Either they are PDFs that can’t be converted to word documents or word documents with poor formatting.

Therefore, I have compiled a bunch of really extensive questionnaires and turned them into 

contemplatingcheese​’s Very Long Character chart

It’s around 11 pages of solid character questions in a Microsoft Word Document that can easily be edited. Also, I’ve included links to awesome writing blogs like

Plus, it’s genderqueer friendly for all of your non-cis characters.

So please, use to your heart’s content. Tag me if you post anything!

All the character references I’ve drawn for Afterus, handily put together.  Next time I do this I’ll think more about proportions, but I’m still pretty pleased with it.

anonymous asked:

I have become completely enamored by Sid, can you please tell me more about him?



Sidney Terrance Shipwright (Sid) is at creation age 11 years old, living in a world sort of like X-Men but without Xavier - so basically every super is evil. If one happens to be a super that isn’t evil, it’s too bad for them, because they’re going by default to jail, because having powers is a taboo.

Sid was born looking like any other baby. He grew up in a large family where he is the youngest of many brothers and sisters. They weren’t very kind or social to him and he quickly got used to be pushed around and ignored.
When he turned 9 he got his first hint of having powers, which he hid from his family, naturally.

His power is shapeshifting, and up until Sid turned 10, it had protected him from looking like a monster to survive. When it decided Sid should learn how to control it, it gradually let go, making it troublesome for Sid to hide it.
Secretly he practiced though, since this was his only way he thought himself special.

In a car accident with his parents and some siblings he escaped. He got out unharmed, turned into an unknown boy and disappeared in the crowd. As far as he knows, his family is okay.
He started living far out in the woods outside of the city in a rundown shed, taking the forms of the forest animals to survive.
For a year he believed he could continue like this, but then
Katie:(belongs to ladykalliste, has power of telekenesis) and
Jamie:
(belongs to luleo, has power of fire) showed up, and after a lot of commotion all three were off together, nobody really liking eachother very much.

Sid always sees good in people but has trouble believing in himself. He does whatever he can for the people he loves and dislikes being in the center of attention and when events takes sudden turns.

"For someone with the power shapeshifting, I’m terrible with change."

His biggest regrets are that he didn’t stand up to his family, and that he once ate a half package of butter, because now he can’t stand butter at all.

When he grows up he learns to accept himself in his true form and casually walks around in it.

Sid’s body consists of a gray skin, fading into darker shades by his chest, arms, legs, back, face and ears. It’s dotted by little light spots, which Sid believes has some sort of connection to the glowy thing that happens when he shifts.

His ears and teeth are pointy, and his nails all grows into firm claws.
Feet, thighs and hands are slightly bigger, and when fully grown he reaches up to 220 cm. (By 15 he had grown past a 21-22 year old Jamie).

(To be updated if more comes to me but this is it for now!)

Basic Main Character Overview Sheet

Sometimes, to me, very detailed character sheets are —to put it lightly— overwhelming. Even I don’t know half of the things listed on them. But that’s just because detailed character planning is not my style. If I micro-manage my character from the get-go, I feel like I put them “in a box” and like they cannot grow within the story.

I suppose, if I were a parent, you could say that I release my children out into the world with little-to-no guidance and just stand on the sidelines, taking notes of what happens to them. Which is why it’s probably a good thing I don’t actually have children.

So, I use the following character sheet for my main character(s). It is very basic but covers a lot of the “big stuff”. I’d thought there had to be other writers out there with the same process as me (hopefully lol) and maybe if you’re one of those writers, you’d like to see other examples of basic character sheets.

Then realized as I started doing the actual drawing for the shot that I still needed a sheet for the Condesce.  So the rest of the stream was spend talking about how weirdly attractive fish alien queen nicki minaj is.  

It was decided that although she wears flats in canon, she looks great in heels and since she’d have been wearing heels for millennia her calves would be AWESOME.
