Is Keith ambidextrous? I don’t have snapshots but I noticed when watching for the fourth time that he switches which hand he uses for his sword in several episodes (although he uses the same hand throughout that episode but then switches in the next one) He definitely uses his right hand for things such as when he drinks the water packet, throws food at Allura, or in all of his “possibly a galra” evidence (right hand gets burned and uses right hand for the panel) and he is the right hand of Voltron and uses his right hand when controlling the red lion to punch or use the sword. But for his bayard he switches hands a lot. And there are a few instances he uses his left hand for things such as pulling Lance to safety from the air lock, picking up his bayard when running from the gladiator, or..pretty much anytime he’s held hands with lance (the “cradled you in my arms” scene) Idk if someone wants to look into this but it was an observation of mine. (Maybe the other characters are ambidextrous too?)
Describing what a character looks like is not one of my
strong points because I sort of suck at it in real life. I think I would have a
lot of trouble describing someone to the police (hopefully I won’t have to do
that) or picking out traits that I think most represent another person. This is
why when I’m describing the physical characteristics of a character; I like to
keep it short.
Not everyone writes this way, but I’ve found this approach
his worked best for me. I’m someone who doesn’t like to be given too much, so I
can imagine the characters the way I want. I like to leave a lot up to the
If you like this
approach, here are some of my tips for describing your characters:
Focus on what’s
There are characteristics worth mentioning because they
directly impact your character in some way. For example, in one of my novels,
my protagonist doesn’t have a left hand. This fact about her impacts that story
and is important to the plot. If a character having brown eyes in a world where
everyone has blue eyes helps build your story, it’s worth mentioning and
explaining. The point is—focus on what will have an impact on your story. Your
tall and handsome character with six pack abs only matters if that is somehow
part of the plot.
My fiancé works in animation as a character designer. Since
character drawings need to be duplicated over and over again, he tries to find
the simplest solutions, while still making sure we’ll recognize that character.
I always keep this in mind because for the most part, the simpler the better.
Don’t over-complicate things for no reason.
Stop reminding your
You don’t need to keep telling your audience what your
character looks like and reminding them about that mole on your character’s
chin. Your audience retains more than you think, especially after you mention
it a couple times. If you write it clearly the first time, they’ll remember
your character has long blonde hair and crooked teeth.
If you want to set up a reminder, try to do it as naturally
as possible. Don’t call Amy the blonde haired girl with crooked teeth. Say
something like, “Amy ran her fingers through her long blonde hair and then
smiled brightly, revealing her crooked teeth.” (You can do better than this,
but hopefully you get what I’m saying). Let the descriptions flow with the
Don’t tell us everything about every character as soon as we’re
introduced to them. Leave room for exploration and save some details until
later on in your story. Info-dumping does not feel natural and it’s a little
annoying to readers. You don’t have to let us know everything all at once. Spread
it out and work it into the story.
