KNOW YOUR CHARACTERS INSIDE AND OUT
That's today's lesson. You have to develop all your characters well enough they become real people. Except those with one line only, like Officer #1 or Hot-Dog Dude. Those are walking puppets to populate your world.
But your primary and secondary characters must be well developed, there's no way around it. Their actions must be driven by their personality and back story. Even though most of this information will never see the light of day, it is imperative they exist through your characters' actions.
If you need a character to behave a specific way to drive the plot forward, it must be planted beforehand and be in line with the previously established personality, it can't be out of character.
My process starts with ten questions I fished here and there and a couple of reminders that form my own Character Bio Sheet. I like to answer them in excruciating detail

One of the best books I read on Character Development was "The Writer's Journey - Mythic Structure for Writers" by Christopher Vogler. He covers classic structuring as well but for me, the highlight in his book is how he maps his plot through his characters.
Basically he divides every single character in seven (7) Archetypes, the most common ones. Sometimes a character can "be" more than one thing but this helps figure out which characters are performing the same function within the story and how they can be combined to form a more complex and enjoyable one.
Vogler says: "The concept of archetypes is an indispensable tool for understanding the purpose or function of characters in a story. If you grasp the function of the archetype

Here's the thing, the more characters you have, the more pages you will need to develop them in a satisfying manner. So, unless you're writing the next 1000+ novel I suggest you keep your cast with the minimum number of characters as possible your plot requires.
Why have two bad guys when one suffices? What's the point in having 50 mutants in a film where only one takes center stage *wink wink looking at you 20th Century Fox*?
I'm sure that when you cooked up a cool story you had about twenty characters in mind, that's perfectly natural, it's just too much fun creating people to populate your world. But there's an inherent danger in keeping such a bloated cast: the character

Did you carefully lay out the path ahead? As much fun as working in comics is, there's still a lot of logistics to handle, especially if you got a team working on the same title.
First off the bat, my advice is to always team up, even if you're like a Swiss army knife with ten thousands utilities and talents, crafting a comic book from beginning to end is just too much work, and that is the main reason I believe people quit halfway through.

Awesome, so based on the current poll I'll discuss index cards, character development and why not a little bit more about structure.
Your outline, which hopefully you broke into smaller chunks, say fifteen or sixteen of them, is the picture on the Lego box. And your index cards are the actual Legos.
So now it's time to build your story just like you planned... before you start remodeling with a few touch ups here and there, let's face, who can resist? But rewriting deserves its own topic
As much planning you have beforehand, there's no better feeling than letting your creativity guide you where the story is asking to go, but knowing your path always help when exploring uncharted territory.

Taxonomic title: Animalia Chordata Mammalia Carnivora Felidae Furrcis
Common name: Furrecat (FURR cat)
Breeds: Typical, Mountain, Plains
Furrecats can differ vastly in size from breed to breed, and have distinct physical traits that differentiate the breeds. First it is worth examining the traits that distinguish the species as a whole.
The Skeletal System:
The furrecat skeletal system is nearly identical to that of most big cats, possessing the same number and types of bones (in various sizes, depending on the breed). There are several features that are unique to the furrecat skeletal system that are worth mentioning.
The most significant aspect of the skull is the pronounced size of the brain cavity roughly one and three-fourth times the size of the average feline. This gives the appearance of a furrecat having a slightly elongated skull. Since the jaw and eye sockets are also pushed down to ac

Believable Characters TutorialTips for making believable characters:Believable Characters Tutorial4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
It doesn't matter if your story characters are from the real world, another planet or another dimension entirely. They need to be believable and free from Mary-sue syndrome. So, what does it take to write an interesting character that isn't a sugar cookie or super good lookin emo and still have people fawn over them? Lets find out.
I will readily admit that most of my characters tend to start out as Mary-sues. However this is mostly because I haven't gotten to know the character and his/her story well enough. So what must happen? I must brainstorm. Who is he? What is he? What main personality trait or flaw would suit him/is best known for? If he is an animal are there any stereotype qualities that I can use or bend or switch? Because lets face it, a cat that loves water, hates lazy catnaps and prefers catching lizards over mice

Fleshing Out Your Characters.
Some people are good at writing people. They have no difficulties conceiving of them and don't balk at doing the legwork involved in writing interesting, well-developed characters. They know what is believable and what isn't, and have some idea of how readers may react to their cast.
Other people seem to have no idea what makes people tick, what makes characters interesting, and hope that piling on enough abilities or cool traits is a workable substitute for character development.
As you might have expected, this ramble is dedicated to not being the latter. Here are some tips and tricks for dealing with the most notorious and noticeable part of your story...the cast.
1. Writing well takes a lot of work. Characters are no exception to this.
Being lazy is the death of decent characterization. In order to write interesting and well-rounded characters, you must be prepared to develop them actively and do any research necessar

I was freezing, but then again I was always freezing, cold, and shivering.
I haven't had a warm meal from as long as I can remember. I was a little hungry so I bit a chunk of an icicle. It wasn't very hard to chew, I kind of got use to it after a series of trying it out.
I left my frozen burrow, noticing small icicles hanging around my entrance. I hated it when icicles blocked my entrance.
I had to break all of the icicles which was pretty much a workout. When I got out I noticed that it was more freezing than usual I started stumbling around until I found a
huge block of ice. When I got closer I found it getting colder and colder.
My instincts told me to stay back, but its presence near me dragged me closer and closer. I thought I could hear a tiny voice, but then I thought it was my imagination. I hesitated, but it was clear in my head saying "come closer closer " then there was a strange devious laug

Dragon's Eye Sneek PeekIt was 10 oclock at night at the Toddson residence. Crickets were chirping cheerfully in the warm summer air, quietly playing their soft, familiar tune. A cool night breeze occasionally blew past, ruffling the leaves on the trees for a moment before continuing on its way. A golden retriever sniffed about, looking for some small furry animal to harass. Inside the faded white farmhouse around which all this was happening, a sleepy Maddy Toddson was watching TV.Dragon's Eye Sneek Peek6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Wander you far across lands, forest & desert sea
Or dream you deep in a cloudless sky ...
Yet a presence looms & beckons, spirits unseen
For they are the Djinn, silent and ever watching,
embalmed into seasons of mortal blood-flow
And beware, for I shalt not speak of this again,
lest darkness unto thy flesh they quest and sow
Eons adrift in smokeless fire did they slumber...
Befallen to Earth's domain, they undressed fate
The Djinn, ancient dwellers humans would fear
Betwixt worlds they linger, shimmering in fire
Thru parallel dimensions they reach, seducing
dreams and reality, life... You!
Peering eyes thru the veil of time and space;
shape shifters of any form, stalk and hunt
Thoughts & flesh canst not escape their magick
Besieged and shadowed, the human race
til they are sent back to whence they came
And death became a wanton treasure,
where Angels pillage & Demons lust in flame

The young woman collapsed into the alleyway, her mechanical arm pulling her down as she quickly crawled behind the trashcans. The footsteps were getting closer and she knew they were coming for her again, coming to drag her back to the dark room with the strange machines.
She huddled in the dark, her naked body shivering as she listened to them getting closer and closer with each footfall. She'd been running for hours, crossing the moors and mountains and down into the city as she listened to the helicopters and trucks tracking her, their radios speaking clearly inside her head as they hounded her through the dark night.
They were right on top of her now, she could see the elongated shadows cast by the florescent street lamps moving across the mouth of the alley as the raindrops shattered the puddles and chilled her body almost as much as the fear.

Your town was small, but with a bustling, lively atmosphere. You had been minding your own business, just out on a few errands, when you saw them; a long line of people marching off the ship, surrounded by a curious crowd. They were a curious lot, wearing beautifully woven clothes in bright colors. As they passed, you could hear the rustling of silk. You stopped to stare like the rest.
It wasn't just the clothes that made them noticeable. They all had smooth, young faces. Their dark hair was tied back loosely. Unconsciously, your fingers began to comb through your own hair. Theirs was longer than yours.

[New section!] Over-mirroring aka sticking too much in patterns of the original series!
INTRODUCTION: DESIGN OF CHARACTER'S LOOKS: WHAT IS ITS ROLE IN THE WHOLE CHARACTER DESIGN?
At first: No costume can save a badly made character. Your Average Joe/Jane character won't become any more interesting even if you make him/her to wear turquoise hair and odd-colored neon-color eyes. What makes character interesting is his/her INNER SIDE: his/her personality, history, skills, behavior pattern, odd traits, running gags, simply WHAT (S)HE IS. A rye bread doesn't become into a cream cake even if you put on it whipped cream and strawberries.
However, a good design may help the reader/viewer to notice, tell apart and remember the character more easily. That's why all Naruto characters are not sporting black hair and wearing those green tactical vests: if all character seemed almost similar, it would be pain for the reader to tell who of th
