do you have any inspiration tips on how to create characters

I apologise for taking so long to respond to this, but prepping for NaNo has gotten me behind in my inbox.

Inspiration tips. I can find inspiration for characters pretty much anywhere. Quel wrote a really good answer to a similar question here.

For me personally, I find most of my inspiration through music. That’s just the way it always has been for me. Really any song with lyrics can inspire a character, or at least give me somewhere to start. Some examples of songs I’ve based characters on in the past:

Sometimes I’ll also think of compelling characters I’ve read about in novels or seen in films or TV shows and make lists of what I like about them. Then I’ll mix and match some qualities and come up with new characters that way.
