When making OC characters, what questions do you ask yourself/then to get a better understanding of their personality? I’m sorry if you’ve been asked this before. But I really want to know, because me and some friends want to write/ draw a comic/ manga with about 118 characters, so the questions will need to be vast and varied to ensure the characters aren’t carbon copies of each other. Thank you.
That’s a lot of characters! If it’s just one story, you may want to focus on just a few – you don’t necessarily need to do an in-depth analysis of everybody. Personally, I tend to have no higher than five main characters, with up to ten secondary characters and maybe around fifteen-plus background characters.
That said, it’s different for everyone, and you may very well be able to do more.
I hope this helps, best of luck, and happy writing! <3
