Since I started posting my doodles for Pink Diamond’s (and recently White’s too) design, followers have been popping like daisies 0_0
I’m almost reaching 150, planned to do smth for my 100 followers but was in a family trip so ended up doing nothing
Meanwhile here are MOAR Diamond Authorithy doodles and sketches to thank you guys! (people can ask me too or suggest me which one of these would like to see finished ^^)
In this first one I like to think that the diamonds are all of differnet heights (WD being the tallest, then followed by Blue, Yellow and finally Pink being the shortest) I headcannon YD being the 2nd shortest mainly because a lot of people that I know in RL that have a strong temper are all short people :P
Playing around with WD’s design, have seen a lot of great drawings of her online! (atm I’m liking better the 3rd design here)
Some Oddly Specific Character Quirks (taken from my real-life friends)
Giving a character strange, highly specific quirks is one of the best ways to humanize them and make them feel more real. So I figured I’d share some real, actual Character Quirks™ from real life people that could serve as inspiration or as writing prompts for people’s characters. Let me know if you use one!
Always has a kazoo on them, and if ever a situation calls for it, will simply produce a kazoo. Often unclear where they were keeping it.
Can mimic any accent perfectly after hearing a small sample of it once. The one exception? The accent of the region they’re from.
Has strange and very long chunks of text memorized perfectly, from 40 digits of pi to several Shakespeare monologues to poems to favorite passages from books. Often forgets their own name or the words for everyday objects.
Has never once lost a game of Jenga, ever.
When stressed, participates in conversations largely through strange and loud vocalizations instead of words. Somehow, everyone still knows what they mean.
Their idea of treating themselves is buying lapel flowers, silk pocket squares, and ties.
Once biked 30 miles to the Mississippi River just so they could sit on the bank and play the harmonica. Could only play for about 3 minutes before having to immediately turn around and bike the 30 mile return trip to get home before dark.
When they get nervous they just drop and start doing push ups. Doesn’t matter where they are.
Ordered 13 boxes of garlic triscuits off of Amazon.
Whenever they hear the song “Dancing Queen” they start stripping. It started as a joke but it has become involuntary and has lead to some uncomfortable situations.
Every time they tell a bad joke, they stand up and take a lap around the room yelling “AND THE CROWD GOES WILD”
Primary mode of transportation is a razor scooter that is much, much too small for them.
Has an “off button” on their back. A spot where, if pressed, all of their muscles give out and they collapse to the ground. Their identical twin has it, too.
If no emoji exists to capture their feelings about something, they will draw a new emoji on the nearest scrap of paper and text a picture of that.
Has developed an intricate burp rating scale with specific and standardized rules and uses it to rate every burp they hear on a scale of 1-10.
Feel free to reblog and add some Real Life Character Quirks you’ve come across in your life!
Translation: “If I stick on a paper-like screen cover on an LCD tablet, I get an extreme improvement in art style, so I wanted to try it on the iPad as well but the pen nib compatability is individual and delicate, and I [unfortunately] had to peel it off… It’s easier to draw without it. I wonder if the paper-like cover is only good with a felt nib…【Toboso】”
