Character Images


I'm not an artist, but I did a quick workup of my main characters using The GIMP and some stock photos I acquired at Stock exchange. So here they are. :-)

Those are pretty cool :)

I've hand-drawn a few pictures of my MC for my JulNo novel, and three of the characters in the other novel I'm working on.

I like the insomniac. :) And GIMP is awesome.

May we see!? I love seeing other people's visions of their characters. I'm working on a picture, but my characters are turning out to be surprisingly hard to draw...

GIMP is awesome. I used Pixelmator to finish them up. Pixelmator is also awesome. (I won a free copy in a blog contest. Now I wish I could win some free photoshop love, lol).

Agreed. I'd love to see them as well.

I intend to illustrate my novel myself. I need NaNoIlMo (National Novel Illustrating Month). Unfortunately, people are probably the only thing I can't draw to my satisfaction. Hands, I can do. But not whole people.

I'd like to see to, Nicole!

Thanks, dogboi, for the inspiration. Now I have my characters portrayed by some actors that might be familiar to you. I use their photos for my inability in drawing. So here are some:

Oh, my word! You obviously know how to take an image from your imagination and put it on paper. I can only copy something. . . so far. Very creative. I especially like your use of shading.

no no no, please mention your art and everyone else's.

Art comes in all kinds, pencil is all I can do. I can't photoshop or do anything digital to save my life. (half the ones I posted are model assisted. They r copies as well my friend)

I totally want to see how others envision their characters

SillyGirl, your sketches are gorgeous! I especially dig the bottom left sketch.. smokin' hot. For the life of me, I cannot seem to get sultry women down. But I may attempt some mugshots before the official JulNo writing begins.

Thanks for the topic, dogboi. I can't wait to see the other character images that show up in this thread. :) And you are awesome for being able to create that using GIMP. I get headaches trying to sort that program out!

janefendy, I love the actors you've chosen for your characters. Logan Lerman is adorable; he charmed the socks off me in Meet Bill, haha. <3

Those of us who are art impaired can use http://foxrichards.deviantart.com/art/FaceMaker-52755515 to get old school RPG looking mugshots.

Or waste a few hours we should spend writing. Whatever.

Just used the FaceMaker. I had a lot of fun; here's the closest renditions of my characters that I could come up with :)

These are attempts of my characters. The first one, is no where near how I have him in my head.

characters.jpg - 6kB

No. 1 = Arthur Fidel - The dashing young doctor who saves no.2 from poverty+prostitution.

No.2 = Tabitha Gray - MC, finds herself accused of murder and runs away from a luxurious household.

No.3 = Felix Dames - Outlaw who lives in the woods and tries to keep Tabitha from harm.

I have to try and draw them soon...

Whoo, more pics :D Looking at these is so fun. SillyGirl, you are very talented. Your characters look like cool people, and I really like the one of the spaceship-place.

Here is me trying to get my main characters down on paper: http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b339/disco_angel287/drawin...

Now everyone else has to post theirs! :P

my MC HAS phchic abilities which allow her to feel others' feelings and she sees herself as a Western person who has a chinese acupuncturist mother. She's not sure if she wants to maintain intersest in TCM "Traditional Chinese medicine. She is symathetic when Mom tells her the Tao is who she is, not something she does.:)

My FMC is in my Banner below. If you can't see it, it's probably because of your settings.
She's ten, but she looks a little older in the picture. Oh, well, can't be perfect at everything(or in my case anything.)

Hmm... where did I put those files? *Opens her documents and searches around for a minute* Here they are!

I can only post one at a time for some reason, but these two are from outside of my WriMo. They aren't as good as I would've wanted, but oh well.

My scanner broke, so I don't have the others in a digital format yet. I'll try to load them up soon.

I agree with lots of those before me, wow SillyGirl!!

My attempt at the Facemaker. Awesome little program. Although Helena's eyes are wrong... she has cat-like pupils.

Wow. I've wasted far too much time on here when I should be planning... oh well :)
