Just link back to the original if you use it, but mostly have fun! This is to help people realize possible design flaws if your characters are too similar. I highly recommend challenging yourself with this one! Choose characters that you think are very similar to better help you understand where you might need help. See if your viewers can guess your character within the first half! Don't rely on eyes, and hair to differentiate your characters!! Make every subtle nuance unique! This applies for all styles! You can't tell me "But I draw humans, or anime." Look at any GOOD anime character designs and you'll see that you can fill this out for them too! Some good examples to use this meme on for preexisting characters: Cruela Devil, Jafar, Facilier, Cowboy Bebop cast, any of Hanna Barbera's characters or any pre 90s toon, Batman villains, etc.

If you post a link to your meme, I may not respond. I hope you don't find that rude, I just can't check them all I'm afraid, but feel free to post it for others' reference n.n

Here's my example: [link]

EDITED: I've gotten a lot of messages asking what "Zeal" and "XXX" mean and what they should put there, so here's an explanation. XD

Zeal: enthusiasm; eager desire; keen interest; spirited; fervor

XXX: up to your interpretation - have your character make a seductive face, have your character blush, maybe your character stumbled across some porn/what would their reaction be?, etc. You can also just put something random there or have your character do something silly, random, or whatever. (:

---------------------------------------------------------

Wuuuuut?! I made a meme? XD
Yepperz!
I was going to go do an expression meme for my Rainbow Defect characters, but I couldn't find an expression meme that had everything that I wanted to do. Then I didn't know if I wanted to do each character with the same expression meme! : O So, I just decided to make my own. Then when making my own, I thought that you guys might want one too. Therefore, I have created this ABC Expression Meme for you guys that's going to be similar to the one I'm going to be filling out! :3

Enjoy and be sure to link me in the comments if you fill it out! I would love to see your finished version! :heart:

Whoa! Hey, look, I made a meme! :O Never thought this would ever happen. Guess being bored enough can do miracles.

I actually had this idea already some time ago. I can't remember where exactly, but I think I was reading somewhere a comment about some random web comic or anime or something, that said that all the characters in said comic/anime/can'tremember, regardless of personality, always reacted in identical way to each other. The same stock smile, the same stock lines of dialogue when something happened. That does steal away from the characters. It doesn't matter if you tell your audience that this character is headstrong tomboy, if her expressions are copies of the character you claim to be shy, your audience isn't going to believe you. I didn't find comparative character expression charts, so I hope this can be useful.
At least I find it interesting to compare different characters' reactions.

Personality and attitude shows through in how people handle their emotions which in turn show on their faces, and thus even when people might have the same expressions (like smile, anger, fear) they will always include a little bit of themselves in those expressions. If you for example take my comic characters Surama and Hafmar from Wurr and look how they express themselves, you can see distinct differences. One of Surama's most dominant personality features is that she's absolutely 100 percent self-confident, so whatever happens she never completely loses her cool or freaks out, compared to Hafmar who's less confident and lets his emotions show a lot easier.
(Having canine characters also has the extra bonus of having expressive ears, I'm pretty careful in how I position them. For example Surama keeps her ears up almost all the time, where as submissive Hafmar keeps his down often when interacting with other characters. As a little hint, there are couple of moments in the comic where the ear position might bring some extra hint in how some characters feel. Nothing major, but still.)

It's not the prettiest meme, but I hope it can come useful for people in examining the personality differences of their characters. It's the first meme I've ever made. Run with it! (And let me see your takes! I'd love to see them.)

Make sure to link back for other people!

No need to ask for permission. Just leaving a comment would be greatly appreciated. I think it would be cool to see other people's results.

Here are their definitions of some if you are stuck:

Another writing meme from me, because there just aren't enough out there. This one is done in a drill sargeant style...stripping your character down, giving them a buzz cut, and making you look at their personality and their lives rather than their outward stuff.

Just because I mention Mary-Sues, don't think it has to be just for that. It'll work with any character.

Remember it's all in fun, and hopefully will make you think differently about your character.

Please let me know if you do it, or even if you think you might do it.

Here's mine ->   SENANCA got awkwardly MEME'd by JWiesner
_________________

EDIT: Wow, what is it with some people and the Bible question?

1. I'm an atheist and would answer this question for fun because I still know the Bible. I'd also dress an OC as a fairy, or a unicorn, whether I believe in the character/story or not.
2. No, your OC doesn't have to be Christian.
3. This wasn't meant to be a thing as big as you make it.

EDIT END.

__

Of course it had to be a meme of awkwardness. What else is fun.
By the way, don't forget to post a link here with your results when you're done. I'm interested to see what you came up with.

Oh my goodness. I never thought I'd find myself translating Japanese again. But this looked pretty fun and I'm trying to keep myself busy when it comes to drawing.

This here's a Pixiv meme I've stumbled upon, which has you draw various expressions for a character, be it original or already established. Given that not many people knoew moonspeak thoroughly, I'd give it a shot at providing an English version. There's an English style meme already out, but I can't be arsed to fill it in, since this one looks more interesting and challenging. ;)

Original Japanese template: [link]

無表情(muhyoujyou)- Expressionless, poker-faced
笑顔(egao) - Smiling
怒り(ikari) - Enraged, Angry
悲しみ(kanashimi) - Sad

泣く(naku) - Weeping
照れる(tereru) - Shy
焦る(aseru) - Impatient/tense
驚く(odoruku) - Surprised/shocked

受け(uke) - Submissive/bottom
攻め(seme) - Dominant/top
好きな〇〇の前(sukina * no mae) -In front of ___ they like
嫌いな〇〇の前(kiraina * no mae)-In front of ___ they hate

WARNING HUGE FILE!!!!!

The ultimate Expression Meme, over 63 expressions to draw, and finnish.

never a meme had this amount of expression to draw, now i ask you 2 questions.

1) are you up to it?

&

2) what the hell was i thinking while doing this???
ok you don't have to answer the last question, but really though are you up to drawing these expressions?

I'm already working on it with one of my OC char, but i really doubt that someone will do this, let alone finnish this.

good luck though, i'll be happy to draw a picture for you if you finnish.

EDIT - Didn't make this, didn't translate it, please don't bother crediting me at all. Just link here if you like, better yet, also provide the PIXIV link: [link]

I'm uncomfortable with undue credit. ^ ^ ;;;;;;;

This is a share the wealth kind of thing. Thank you for understanding. I apologize for not making this clear earlier. m(_ _)m








I didn't make this. This is a _translated_ (not by me but by some anons I asked) version of the original meme on PIXIV. Found here: [link]

I put this up here because I'd like this meme to be more accessible because it's really fun! Ergh, I hope this is okay.

Directions
1. Pick a favorite character, OC, what the hell ever (maybe a few, whatever I don't make the rules)
2. Draw them according to title above.

_Details_
- Normal would be how you normally draw them.
- For Good-looking draw them in a way that makes them look very handsome or gorgeous.
- For Cute, Draw them cutely (give them big eyes, and :3 face, anything).
- Chibi is self-explanatory.
- Surreal, well um lol, that's really your interpretation (there is no real right way to do that one).
- Lastly, draw them in somebody else's style. Could be your favorite artist, mangaka, animator, Matt Groening style, Hirohiko Araki's style, Fist of the North Star style, western cartoon style, Marvel style etc

Here's an example by yours truly ♥: [link]
I used Near from Death Note as my character of choice.

And another more recent example of Gevanni from Death Note:

And I found another of this chick from Shugo Chara (Amu): [link]

Interested in helping me out? Head over to *x-Rook-x and donate a point or few so I can get a dA artist bag! Any extra points will be tossed back in a random drawing and donated back to those who have donated!

-------------


Alrighty so we're going to do a little FAQ on this meme so hopefully people don't ask me the same three questions over and over.

:bulletblue:Am I allowed to do this meme?
Of course! You don't need to ask for permission because I made it to help people sketch things that they might not normally sketch. My only requirement is that you either post a link back to this account (try using :dev amberneely: without a space or :icon amberneely: if you want to post my icon), or copy-paste the URL of the meme directly into the description. If you don't, I will hunt you down and leave a cranky comment on your page. That's just how I am.

:bulletgreen:I'm nervous, these poses seem hard.
That's actually the point. These aren't easy poses because a lot of people get into a "safety zone" where they will continually draw their characters in the same poses. You have no idea how uninteresting it is to go into someones gallery and see all their characters standing around with their hands on their hips/behind their backs. This is meant to be a challenge. Don't feel terrible if you can't get the hang of it at first, you can always try it a few times, and you are not obligated to post anything you don't like.

:bulletblue: What does "Bust" mean?
Bust is a drawing of your character from mid-chest and upward. These poses focus mainly on the arms and face, rather than the flow of the whole body.

:bulletgreen: I don't like the poses you picked! This meme is stupid my characters would never be doing anything like this.
Then don't do the meme.
:iconmoveon1plz::iconmoveon2plz:

:bulletblue:I don't have a tablet and I can't draw well with a mouse. Any suggestions how I might do this?
Unlike my last two memes, this one would actually be a pretty bad ink hog if you printed it out. My suggestion is that you draw the poses by hand on paper, scan them in to your computer, and use a program like photoshop or gimp (which is free) to resize and insert them into the spaces. (I'm not going to teach you how to use gimp or photoshop to do this. There is a plethora of fine tutorials on how to use both programs if you just spend a little time getting to know Google.) If you don't like that suggestion, then I don't have anything else helpful for you.

:bulletgreen: The background of the boxes have a texture on it, and I can't use the paintbucket to fill in colors! FIX THIS!
No. If you're really that concerned about not being able to color it, and you don't like to color things with the brush tool and using layers, white out the boxes yourself. I love the wonderful texture on this (supplied by ~struckdumb), and you wouldn't believe how horrible solid white looked. I think it gives a nicer look that the boxes are a soft, textured grey.

:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen:

That being said, if you liked the meme and want me to know, hop over to my main account at *x-Rook-x and post a link on the main page so I can peep at it. Or you can just post the link in the comments here.

But you should still go visit my main page

Instructions:

:bulletblack: Draw your character(s) at ages 5, 13, 17, and 25.
:bulletwhite:Download for the full size (the link is to the right of this image) if you're like me and need freaking giant boxes to draw in.
:bulletblack: You can always scan it in and put the images in with a program like GIMP or Photoshop. No I will not teach you how to do that.
:bulletwhite: Feel free to use fan characters and original characters, and if you really want to use yourself, that's fine too!

Rules:

:bulletblack: You do not have to ask me if you can fill this out.
:bulletwhite: Provide a link and credit me with the original idea/blank meme in your artist comments. If you have been on deviantART for more than five minutes and have not figured out how to provide credit/link to the original, do not bother doing this meme until you figure it out.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can draw your own template for your own meme (do not just upload the blank, please) if you don't like the one I have provided, but please still link back to the original and credit the idea to me.
:bulletwhite: You can change the ages if you would like. This includes adding or removing boxes.
:bulletblack: Please come back here and send me a link once you have filled this out. While I don't always have the time to comment, I look at EVERY SINGLE ONE you send me, and I love them all! :heart:

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

If you DO ask me anything I have addressed in the description, I will assume that you have not read this description and therefore reserve the right to make fun of you. Playfully, of course.

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

About this meme being on KnowYourMeme: Yes, I know that this is on there. No, I didn't put it on there. I'm just as baffled as you.

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

A ton of people have been asking if I've ever made other memes, and the answer is yes. Here's a quick, non-descript link list of the other memes I've got currently. Most of these deal with poses and supporting characters, so be sure to use them as you're fleshing out your drawing skills and characters' background stories!

This is a challenge and an exercise that I find incredibly helpful when hashing out a new character. It's good to have nearby when doing your panels and you're thinking, "Damn, what does So-and-so's nose do in this expression?" Or maybe your drawing isn't consistent and you want to keep a certain look? Catalogue them on this sheet first and keep it nearby for easy reference!

I'd be more than happy to see filled out sheets in other people's devs! Let me know if you do post it cause I'd like to see it!

EDIT: Fixed typo, took away 'surprised' and replaced it with 'tired', then added 'surprised' to 'shocked'. I want to thank the forum folk at girl-wonder.org for the suggested changes!

EDIT the 2nd: WOW. This thing has taken off! I will read all your comments eventually, it'll just take me some time!

The Tutorial that this exercise sheet goes with. Enjoy!

No. If you're really that concerned about not being able to color it, and you don't like to color things with the brush tool and using layers, white out the boxes yourself. I love the wonderful texture on this (supplied by ~struckdumb), and you wouldn't believe how horrible solid white looked. I think it gives a nicer look that the boxes are a soft, textured grey.

That being said, if you liked the meme and want me to know, hop over to my main account at *x-Rook-x and post a link on the main page so I can peep at it. Or you can just post the link in the comments here.

Character Meme
:iconsyric:
Collection by
Just link back to the original if you use it, but mostly have fun! This is to help people realize possible design flaws if your characters are too similar. I highly recommend challenging yourself with this one! Choose characters that you think are very similar to better help you understand where you might need help. See if your viewers can guess your character within the first half! Don't rely on eyes, and hair to differentiate your characters!! Make every subtle nuance unique! This applies for all styles! You can't tell me "But I draw humans, or anime." Look at any GOOD anime character designs and you'll see that you can fill this out for them too! Some good examples to use this meme on for preexisting characters: Cruela Devil, Jafar, Facilier, Cowboy Bebop cast, any of Hanna Barbera's characters or any pre 90s toon, Batman villains, etc.

If you post a link to your meme, I may not respond. I hope you don't find that rude, I just can't check them all I'm afraid, but feel free to post it for others' reference n.n

Here's my example: [link]

Another writing meme from me, because there just aren't enough out there. This one is done in a drill sargeant style...stripping your character down, giving them a buzz cut, and making you look at their personality and their lives rather than their outward stuff.

Just because I mention Mary-Sues, don't think it has to be just for that. It'll work with any character.

Remember it's all in fun, and hopefully will make you think differently about your character.

Please let me know if you do it, or even if you think you might do it.

Instructions:

:bulletblack: Draw your character(s) at ages 5, 13, 17, and 25.
:bulletwhite:Download for the full size (the link is to the right of this image) if you're like me and need freaking giant boxes to draw in.
:bulletblack: You can always scan it in and put the images in with a program like GIMP or Photoshop. No I will not teach you how to do that.
:bulletwhite: Feel free to use fan characters and original characters, and if you really want to use yourself, that's fine too!

Rules:

:bulletblack: You do not have to ask me if you can fill this out.
:bulletwhite: Provide a link and credit me with the original idea/blank meme in your artist comments. If you have been on deviantART for more than five minutes and have not figured out how to provide credit/link to the original, do not bother doing this meme until you figure it out.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can draw your own template for your own meme (do not just upload the blank, please) if you don't like the one I have provided, but please still link back to the original and credit the idea to me.
:bulletwhite: You can change the ages if you would like. This includes adding or removing boxes.
:bulletblack: Please come back here and send me a link once you have filled this out. While I don't always have the time to comment, I look at EVERY SINGLE ONE you send me, and I love them all! :heart:

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

If you DO ask me anything I have addressed in the description, I will assume that you have not read this description and therefore reserve the right to make fun of you. Playfully, of course.

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

About this meme being on KnowYourMeme: Yes, I know that this is on there. No, I didn't put it on there. I'm just as baffled as you.

:bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite::bulletblack::bulletwhite:

A ton of people have been asking if I've ever made other memes, and the answer is yes. Here's a quick, non-descript link list of the other memes I've got currently. Most of these deal with poses and supporting characters, so be sure to use them as you're fleshing out your drawing skills and characters' background stories!

DUDE WHAT?! D8>

So now I give you the ACTION! Pose Meme! It's not a challenge for the faint of heart, because I specifically chose harder poses the further down you get! :XD:

READ BELOW IF YOU WANT ONE OF THE OLDER VERSIONS OF THIS.

Something not particularily artsy, but..

I've found these memes kind of fun to do when I don't feel like making a serious drawing so I decided to make one, myself. I don't think this has been done for pokemon yet.

You can find lists of pokemon by type on sites like Serebii.net www.serebii.net or Bulbapedia bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik….

----------

Update - June 15, 2013: I've redesigned this to accommodate the new Fairy type! I went with three per row because that can be done evenly now. If you prefer the old meme design you can download it below..

Update - October 2010: Old news, but this meme got way more popular than I had expected. I guess people like drawing their favourite pokemon. I'm really glad you're all enjoying it so much.

I've updated the meme to look a little better, it's a bit larger now as well.

----------

CURRENT VERSION ALTS:

Printer Version (2550 x 3300, 300DPI, reduced colour): Page 1: i.imgur.com/RdtULcb.png Page 2: i.imgur.com/JLMgwy5.png

----------

Old Versions:

VERSION 2:

Normal 1030 x 1240px: i.imgur.com/2KI3d.png
Smaller 800 x 960 Version: i.imgur.com/HI24A.png
Larger 1661 x 2000 Version: i.imgur.com/h6Ntr.png
Printer Version (2550 x 3300, 300DPI, reduced colour): i.imgur.com/pyrNj.gif

ORIGINAL:

One size: i.imgur.com/KRiWJ.png

----------

FAQ:

Can I do this on paper/print it?
Yup! There's a printer version just above for that reason.

I can't draw, can I use sprites instead?
It kind of defeats the purpose (draw your favourites), but I won't stop you.

How do I save it?
If you want actual size, hit the "Download" button on the right, then right click and save the image. If you're getting one of the alternative versions listed above, then click those links and again, right click and save (or print for the printer version).

I like the idea of this meme, can I make a "Favourite _____ Meme" or "Least Favourite _____ Meme"?
Sure, I'm not planning try and monopolize the idea. :P

How do I do this meme?
You'll either have to save it and open it in a drawing program that can read PNG files (MS Paint, Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, etc) or print it, draw it by hand, and then take a picture of it or scan it using a scanner. If you can't open PNGs, you can try the printer version (which is a GIF), though as a warning it's huge.

Can I fill out this meme more than once (by different generations, need to update, etc)?
Of course!

Hay someone should do an Arceus version olol
..Not exactly a question, but this has been done. :P

EDIT - Didn't make this, didn't translate it, please don't bother crediting me at all. Just link here if you like, better yet, also provide the PIXIV link: [link]

I'm uncomfortable with undue credit. ^ ^ ;;;;;;;

This is a share the wealth kind of thing. Thank you for understanding. I apologize for not making this clear earlier. m(_ _)m








I didn't make this. This is a _translated_ (not by me but by some anons I asked) version of the original meme on PIXIV. Found here: [link]

I put this up here because I'd like this meme to be more accessible because it's really fun! Ergh, I hope this is okay.

Directions
1. Pick a favorite character, OC, what the hell ever (maybe a few, whatever I don't make the rules)
2. Draw them according to title above.

_Details_
- Normal would be how you normally draw them.
- For Good-looking draw them in a way that makes them look very handsome or gorgeous.
- For Cute, Draw them cutely (give them big eyes, and :3 face, anything).
- Chibi is self-explanatory.
- Surreal, well um lol, that's really your interpretation (there is no real right way to do that one).
- Lastly, draw them in somebody else's style. Could be your favorite artist, mangaka, animator, Matt Groening style, Hirohiko Araki's style, Fist of the North Star style, western cartoon style, Marvel style etc

Here's an example by yours truly ♥: [link]
I used Near from Death Note as my character of choice.

And another more recent example of Gevanni from Death Note:

And I found another of this chick from Shugo Chara (Amu): [link]

This is a challenge and an exercise that I find incredibly helpful when hashing out a new character. It's good to have nearby when doing your panels and you're thinking, "Damn, what does So-and-so's nose do in this expression?" Or maybe your drawing isn't consistent and you want to keep a certain look? Catalogue them on this sheet first and keep it nearby for easy reference!

I'd be more than happy to see filled out sheets in other people's devs! Let me know if you do post it cause I'd like to see it!

EDIT: Fixed typo, took away 'surprised' and replaced it with 'tired', then added 'surprised' to 'shocked'. I want to thank the forum folk at girl-wonder.org for the suggested changes!

EDIT the 2nd: WOW. This thing has taken off! I will read all your comments eventually, it'll just take me some time!

The Tutorial that this exercise sheet goes with. Enjoy!

~~PLEASE DON'T LINK FINISHED MEMES BACK TO ME. I GET WAY TOO MANY OF THEM. IF YOU POST YOURS ON MY PAGE OR NOTE IT TO ME, I'M SORRY, BUT I WON'T LOOK AT IT.~~


F.A.Q.

- Click download for a higher resolution.

- Yes, you can use it.

- The speech bubbles are that of someone talking TO your character. It is not your character saying these words.

- Your character can be human, animal, anthro, anything. It's your character; you do whatever you want.

- You don't have to fill in all the boxes if you don't want to.

- Right click on the image. Press save. Then open up the saved file in an imaging program, eg. Photoshop, Paint, etc.
Alternatively, you can print it out and fill it in by hand. Seriously, whatever you want.

EDITED: I've gotten a lot of messages asking what "Zeal" and "XXX" mean and what they should put there, so here's an explanation. XD

Zeal: enthusiasm; eager desire; keen interest; spirited; fervor

XXX: up to your interpretation - have your character make a seductive face, have your character blush, maybe your character stumbled across some porn/what would their reaction be?, etc. You can also just put something random there or have your character do something silly, random, or whatever. (:

---------------------------------------------------------

Wuuuuut?! I made a meme? XD
Yepperz!
I was going to go do an expression meme for my Rainbow Defect characters, but I couldn't find an expression meme that had everything that I wanted to do. Then I didn't know if I wanted to do each character with the same expression meme! : O So, I just decided to make my own. Then when making my own, I thought that you guys might want one too. Therefore, I have created this ABC Expression Meme for you guys that's going to be similar to the one I'm going to be filling out! :3

Enjoy and be sure to link me in the comments if you fill it out! I would love to see your finished version! :heart:

Whoa! Hey, look, I made a meme! :O Never thought this would ever happen. Guess being bored enough can do miracles.

I actually had this idea already some time ago. I can't remember where exactly, but I think I was reading somewhere a comment about some random web comic or anime or something, that said that all the characters in said comic/anime/can'tremember, regardless of personality, always reacted in identical way to each other. The same stock smile, the same stock lines of dialogue when something happened. That does steal away from the characters. It doesn't matter if you tell your audience that this character is headstrong tomboy, if her expressions are copies of the character you claim to be shy, your audience isn't going to believe you. I didn't find comparative character expression charts, so I hope this can be useful.
At least I find it interesting to compare different characters' reactions.

Personality and attitude shows through in how people handle their emotions which in turn show on their faces, and thus even when people might have the same expressions (like smile, anger, fear) they will always include a little bit of themselves in those expressions. If you for example take my comic characters Surama and Hafmar from Wurr and look how they express themselves, you can see distinct differences. One of Surama's most dominant personality features is that she's absolutely 100 percent self-confident, so whatever happens she never completely loses her cool or freaks out, compared to Hafmar who's less confident and lets his emotions show a lot easier.
(Having canine characters also has the extra bonus of having expressive ears, I'm pretty careful in how I position them. For example Surama keeps her ears up almost all the time, where as submissive Hafmar keeps his down often when interacting with other characters. As a little hint, there are couple of moments in the comic where the ear position might bring some extra hint in how some characters feel. Nothing major, but still.)

It's not the prettiest meme, but I hope it can come useful for people in examining the personality differences of their characters. It's the first meme I've ever made. Run with it! (And let me see your takes! I'd love to see them.)

BIG HUGE

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:CLICK THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON ON THE LEFT SIDEBAR FOR A FULL SIZE OF THIS MEME:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
This is a giant file (2171px by 2894px) because most people who do sketchwork tend to sketch REALLY big. Feel free to resize at will when you post it or whatever.


THERE IS NOW A PART TWO HERE: [link]

Interested in helping me out? Head over to *x-Rook-x and donate a point or few so I can get a dA artist bag! Any extra points will be tossed back in a random drawing and donated back to those who have donated!

-------------


Alrighty so we're going to do a little FAQ on this meme so hopefully people don't ask me the same three questions over and over.

:bulletblue:Am I allowed to do this meme?
Of course! You don't need to ask for permission because I made it to help people sketch things that they might not normally sketch. My only requirement is that you either post a link back to this account (try using :dev amberneely: without a space or :icon amberneely: if you want to post my icon), or copy-paste the URL of the meme directly into the description. If you don't, I will hunt you down and leave a cranky comment on your page. That's just how I am.

:bulletgreen:I'm nervous, these poses seem hard.
That's actually the point. These aren't easy poses because a lot of people get into a "safety zone" where they will continually draw their characters in the same poses. You have no idea how uninteresting it is to go into someones gallery and see all their characters standing around with their hands on their hips/behind their backs. This is meant to be a challenge. Don't feel terrible if you can't get the hang of it at first, you can always try it a few times, and you are not obligated to post anything you don't like.

:bulletblue: What does "Bust" mean?
Bust is a drawing of your character from mid-chest and upward. These poses focus mainly on the arms and face, rather than the flow of the whole body.

:bulletgreen: I don't like the poses you picked! This meme is stupid my characters would never be doing anything like this.
Then don't do the meme.
:iconmoveon1plz::iconmoveon2plz:

:bulletblue:I don't have a tablet and I can't draw well with a mouse. Any suggestions how I might do this?
Unlike my last two memes, this one would actually be a pretty bad ink hog if you printed it out. My suggestion is that you draw the poses by hand on paper, scan them in to your computer, and use a program like photoshop or gimp (which is free) to resize and insert them into the spaces. (I'm not going to teach you how to use gimp or photoshop to do this. There is a plethora of fine tutorials on how to use both programs if you just spend a little time getting to know Google.) If you don't like that suggestion, then I don't have anything else helpful for you.

:bulletgreen: The background of the boxes have a texture on it, and I can't use the paintbucket to fill in colors! FIX THIS!
No. If you're really that concerned about not being able to color it, and you don't like to color things with the brush tool and using layers, white out the boxes yourself. I love the wonderful texture on this (supplied by ~struckdumb), and you wouldn't believe how horrible solid white looked. I think it gives a nicer look that the boxes are a soft, textured grey.

:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen:

That being said, if you liked the meme and want me to know, hop over to my main account at *x-Rook-x and post a link on the main page so I can peep at it. Or you can just post the link in the comments here.

But you should still go visit my main page

Just link back to the original if you use it, but mostly have fun! This is to help people realize possible design flaws if your characters are too similar. I highly recommend challenging yourself with this one! Choose characters that you think are very similar to better help you understand where you might need help. See if your viewers can guess your character within the first half! Don't rely on eyes, and hair to differentiate your characters!! Make every subtle nuance unique! This applies for all styles! You can't tell me "But I draw humans, or anime." Look at any GOOD anime character designs and you'll see that you can fill this out for them too! Some good examples to use this meme on for preexisting characters: Cruela Devil, Jafar, Facilier, Cowboy Bebop cast, any of Hanna Barbera's characters or any pre 90s toon, Batman villains, etc.

If you post a link to your meme, I may not respond. I hope you don't find that rude, I just can't check them all I'm afraid, but feel free to post it for others' reference n.n

Here's my example: [link]
