Character guestions: 2, 4, 5, 13, 18!

2. Who’s the oldest character of yours, defunct or not?
Oldest I can remember by name is a dog-wolf-something-or-other called Miko from 2003, I think. (Obviously I don’t use him anymore.) He was basically just a dog face I traced from a book, slapped a disney-ish eye and some hair on and started to draw. I couldn’t draw myself out of a paper bag back then so he was pretty short-lived but for some reason I remember him really well. I think he looked something like this:

I also wrote a lot of fantasy “novels” in my teens with a bunch of characters but I can’t remember if any of those happened before or after 2003.

4. Any minor characters that have either taken over or branched off into their own stories? 

Technically her, I suppose. She started as an fan-OC I created from my player character for a game fandom shenanigans, but ended up liking her looks and personality so much that I took what I could and reworked it into a new character in a new, original setting with an original story. After a ton of development she has very little in common with her predecessor, though.  (Plus I’m not sure if I should change her name or not because of some mildly embarrassing circumstances that are partially due to her origins.)

5. Do you prefer to make human, animal, monster, or _____ characters? Why?
Humans, at this point. I’m most comfortable with human expression of emotions. And I love drawing hands. Gotta have hands.

13. Do you create playlists for your characters?
Not until very recently! Like, I made one first time ever two weeks ago. Then I proceeded to make another, put the songs in dramaturgical order and listened to them in a self-congratulatory glory like aaaawwww yeaaaaaaah.

18. Is there anything you really wish you could do, character-design-wise, that you feel is outside your current skillset? A concept that you wish you could pull off but are uncertain about?
Urgh, diversity in the visual design. Like, I don’t think I’m really pushing the designs towards more visually interesting forms and shapes. Personality-wise I feel I’m pretty poor at coming up with and making use of strong defining character quirks. I can’t really explain what I mean but sometimes I just don’t think my characters feel like real, living beings instead of dramaturgical puppets.

Heyyyyyy do you think maybe you can describe what you look like? Or maybe.. post a selfie!

Let’s see I have short hair (it’s grown to be almost shoulder length now) and it’s a darker brown, although it’s fading pretty quickly. I have blue eyes and my face is kinda roundish? It’s quite oval as well. Without makeup on (which I’m trying to up my confidence and wear no makeup to school tomorrow) my cheeks are naturally flushed and I turn red easily. I do have rather weird acne, the kind where it’s not like overpowering my face, but they’re tiny ones that just make an uneven skin texture that only looks bad with makeup on it. Ummm I’m rather small, especially my hands and feet.. I think that’s all?
Oh and maybe I’ll post a selfie.. but I’ll need more asks that actual want one in order to do it ☺️ maybe I’ll say about 5 or more asks wanting me to post a selfie?

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
