DESIGN TUTORIAL - BASIC CHARACTER CREATIONYo! I get a lot of questions on how I create my characters, such as how do I come up with color schemes, markings, the basic idea, all that cool stuff~ X3
So I'd thought I do a little design tutorial. This is a TEXT based tutorial, meant to give the tricks/tips that I use.
So prepare to read! I will be using my characters as examples.
This tutorial covers design tips for both ANIMALS AND HUMANS.
KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE ARE TIPS AND TRICKS THAT I USE.
EVERYONE MAY HAVE A DIFFERENT PROCEDURE.
The Idea: Where and How Do I start?
So you want to create a new character huh? But you don't know where to start with the process....Hmm. When I'm coming up with a new character, I start with the personality about 75% of the time. It doesn't have to be in-depth, just basic personality traits.
So for example I might want a character that is:
- Loud, aggressive, rude, doesn't give a fuck about anythi

Tears welled up in amethyst eyes as the teen's fist hit the wall. He didn't know what to do. He didn't know if there was anything to do. His other half was gone. Yugi had been ripped from his very heart, and all because he was too blinded by rage to see what he had done. The darkness that had always been in his heart had won, letting Rafael get the best of him and letting someone else pay the price.
The Pharaoh let the name of his light, his partner, his very reason to keep walking, slip past his lips. If this were any normal day, he would have confided in his Aibou, telling him everything that was troubling him. Then Yugi would smile up at him with those big, innocent eyes and gently tell him that it would all be alright. In an instant, anything that bothered the spirit, anything and everything would leave his mind and all that would be left was him and his Yugi.
The Pharaoh leaned against the wall, his breathing heavy. He knew how much of a blow Yugi's disappearance was for
MLP dragons and how they operate (In theory)First of all, Why dosn't Spike have wings like the other dragons we've seen?? Is the term "Dragon" a catch all for any reptile that breaths fire like how "Cat" can mean anything from a Tiger to a Tabby and Spike just happens to be a different "Spieces" of dragon from the Heraldic Dragons we've seen thus far?????
We the audiance haven't been told a lot about how dragons operate in this universe, thus like the ponies and Spike himself, know little about them. Suprisingly the episode that gives us the most infromation is "Dragon Quest", but not because of what we're told, but because of what we can extrapulateand and what can be compared to real world animal behavior .
First,consitering that this comparison to this real worls animal will come up the most, I feel that it would be a good idea to go alittle bit about African Elephant beahvior. In an episode of animal planets Mutual of Ohmahas wild kingdom, an African national park (I don't recall w
InformationBlake that little thieve is back, or should we call her Renkat now?
I watched her awhile because many people told me that she wanted to change herself (again..)
And now, what must we see? She is stealing characters, styles and is even tracing from Photos (she isn't referencing them, she is tracing them!)
She doesn't even paid the Points back that she stole WolfHearts got once her password from her parents on her feakin Account to pay the Points back that feakin still had, that wasn't enough for all those poor people - Blake got enough Time and Points to pay them all back but instead of changing herself she is still stealing.
Don't think her "haters" are trolls. She made them by herself, she had more than 50 Accounts here and on everyone she stole drawings - even tried to sell drawings from others, and she won't stop - even if she doesn't steal public anymore, stealing characters and copying Styles isn't better!
This character here http://i49.tinypic.com/2hfv0vm.jpg is stolen from
