Character Depth: Questions and Resources

This is something I’ve been working on for a while: a list of questions you can answer and resources you can check out to exercise your imagination muscles and add more depth to your characters. You can always go deeper, and even if you don’t use every single piece of information in a story about your character, you can allude to things to give the implication that your character has a life outside of whatever they’re doing on the page at this immediate moment - to give them a past before the story began, a future after it ends, and to balance them out with skills, interests, and goals that make sense.

I’m trying to get into actually drawing whole figures again. Please send me OCs (furry characters and gemsonas are also still fine!) or tell me who I should draw out of my own OCs!

I’m going to try to do as many as I can out of the ones I get, even if they’re not my usual, uh, style, I guess? No weird horror, though. :U

               x. the fruitless end of misguided information.

               releasing a long-winded sigh, a gloved finger adjusts the frame of his glasses while his eyes close in reflection. when inquiring about a girl with flowers in her hair { and that red jewel on her forehead } – he’d been guided to this woman who seemed to make some kind of living out of peddling flowers. odd since there was a general lack of life in this city. no fauna, no flora. only the bustling of people that seemed to be no better off than rats. but this was no time for pity or speculation. clearly, this was not the girl he’d been looking for, which is the reason his hand loosens his subtle grip on the hilt of his blade entirely. “keep looking,” he utters just beneath his breath & the centurion who remains hidden from sight fades away amidst the sparse crowd.

              who was to say marta wouldn’t have given her support to a girl such as this? after all, the flowers looked almost exactly the same. it’s worth sparing a moment longer if he could find favorable results. long, easy strides cover the remaining distance that exists between their forms without excessive haste. “excuse me — “

If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.
—  David Bowie

Uncurl yourself from your shell and reach out to the world with open hands even when it cuts you down and bleeds you out, because goddammit, you deserve your share of miracles too. Refuse in that beautiful stubborn way of yours to let the sting of reality chase you back into that stagnant dark place in your mind. Just know this darling, one day your laughter will lose its bitter edge and your smile will shine out from the depths of your eyes. 

If you’ve been waiting for a wake-up call, this is it (thedreamingviolet)

Send me a URL and I will shower them with praise!

Character: YODELS ABOUT SMART ANTAGONISTS THE WORLD NEEDS MORE SMART ANTAGONISTS TBH. Though I have to admit I didn’t have a lot of interest in Viktor when he came out as such (I’m biased because I tend to care 100% more about female characters orz), he’s really grown on me with the various portrayals I’ve read across tumblr. I still suck at playing him though :l 

Portrayal: Your portrayal is really strong! I honestly don’t follow many Viktors but yours is one that made me wanna read on and see more, and I’m excited to see what else you bring out! Your headcanons are wonderfully in depth, and your Viktor seems to have a unique spin on him. I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly it is, but it’s definitely a good thing! Keep it up!

Writing: Most of what I’ve seen you write is in present tense and can I say how much I love that? I see it quite rarely actually, but I’ve always found it superfun to write in, and read. I don’t know why I don’t do it more often :V the only drawback of present tense is it tends to sound quite clunky, but yours has a wonderful flow that totally mitigates that. Kudos!! That’s pretty hard to do ;u; I really enjoy what you write tho, and I’d love to rp with you at some point (tho ngl your Swain would be easier to RP with unless we went AU :’D).

Mun: YOU ARE SO SWEET OK. Like, we’ve barely talked but when we do I’m just reminded every time of how cool you are >u> you’re very talented ok and I wish you the best for future! (and I intend to bug your swain at some poiny i aCTUALLY HAVE QUESTIONS TO ASK REGARDING HIM TBH). tl;dr you’re a bae ok, and I love seeing you pop up on my dash ;u; ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS URL? ITS AWESOME

How It Feels For Me 

This is for the car ride home on them Friday and Saturday nights. After you’ve dropped everybody that rode with you back to their respective homes. The void of another persons presence sets in and you found yourself alone in a car that was once full. Whereas once your spirit was being manipulated by the differing energies of the various passengers (their positive energy balancing out your negative) and your spirit was lifted from the depths. Now the energy in the car is only being supplied by you. Your spirit descends, The substances that you used to distract you from your sorrows, instead bring them to you with seven fold the weight they held while you were sober. Learning to wrestle with these demons in this manner will not only test your strength but multiply it. Overcome these nights in this place and the world around you will be powerless against you.
