Your welcome! I’ve never been good at creating OCs, do you have any tips?
That is sad, but it sounds like a really interesting Story to read!

Thank you! 🤗
I think one of the most useful tips I’ve received and I give is: Don’t be afraid of using references, copy!! When I have to create a character, the first thing I do is go to pinterest (more useful than google in this, imo) and use keywords of ideas I have, to get inspiration. Example: if I want to create a female elf archer, I’ll use “elf fantasy drawing”, “elvish outfit”, “elvish bow”, “elf warrior”, and you’ll get an awful lot of references. Then I pick a pose that could be used by any character, very general. And then I try to start adding all the stuff that I like from the references I’ve been watching. And of course, every time I draw a character I have to look up hands and feet/shoes references, because otherwise it’s impossible xD
I think looking for the right references is almost as important as technique.

Wow thank you so much! :highfive: That really helps!

Whenever I try to make my own character I do look for reference and bass them on other characters, sometimes I feel guilty about that but now I know it’s okay to look for other reference, thanks! 😁

I use reference all the time! :highfive:Sometimes I’ll spend hours browsing Pinterest just looking for a reference picture to sketch. 😂
