Creating Believable Worlds
Here’s a list of things that you should think about when creating a new world/society for a story concept. They aren’t in any order. This is more of my college wisdom by the way.
1. The Time Period
Especially for a human society on Earth. Do your characters live in medieval times? Elizabethan times? Prehistoric times? This will greatly affect many aspects of the characters in the story, such as their clothing, posture, vocabulary (I mean really you’re not going to hear the word “dude” come out of a French aristocrat), rituals, law enforcement, etc. Do your research.
If your characters live in the present day, invest in a fashion magazine and a hairstyle magazine and try to keep up with the latest clothing trends.
2. The World’s Geography
Making a map of your world might help, especially if you’re intending on writing a story that involves a character going on an epic adventure that takes them all around the world. Of course you won’

How to Make a Great Story
I was going to make this into a Youtube vid but it’s such a long-winded speech and a lot of the time my dad is in the room right next to me (darn dad working at home now). Besides, in text form, I can’t mispronounce things and you can refer back to this information.
So suppose you’re a person who wants to make an epic story for people to remember for generations to come (be it for a movie, book, game or whatever), like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Seems easy, but to tell the truth it’s much easier said than done.
How do you do it? More importantly……Where do you start?
Step 1: The Idea
Well the best place to start would be the beginning, with an idea. I suggest you come up with LOTS of ideas, rather than just one, because there’s a rather high chance some of those ideas will be either:
   1. Crap
   2. Already done a million times by other people
It’s true. Great minds do think alike, and if you keep c

Character Design Tips
I decided to make this to test what I really knew about good visual character design, and also to help others who were stuggling with this subject. There's a lot to consider when designing a character for illustration, film or television, but hopefully by the end of this tutorial, it will all come second-nature to you.
A good way to start thinking critically about character design is by analyzing existing characters created in the industry. I call this a "character analysis". Look at every aspect of a character's design. The shapes, the eyes, the colours, the posture, the texture. Each element in a character's design is chosen with a simple purpose in mind - to visually introduce the audience to the character. Ask "why did they do that?", "what was the reason for that aspect of the design?". You see, every decision made in the design process sends a subtle message to the viewer, and understanding symbolism in character design can allow you to create memorable and instantly recognizable

Sayori (Doki Doki Literature Club!)
Here’s another waifu sketch, this time of the MC’s childhood friend, Sayori! What do you think, should I also do Monika and Yuri?

Nova Nightwood
One of my original characters. The drawing is based on the character description I made and posted in my journal. I cannot guarantee this as a final design, but for now I like this look for her. Below is her description.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION
Nova Nightwood
Age: 25 Elven Years (175)
Female
Long, mint green hair that resembles the wave and curve of flames and piercing green eyes. Her hair does not conceal her ears which were pointed but the tips were cut off when she was banished from elven society. She wears a blue ambassador coat with one sleeve burned off and the other torn and missing a patch. The Mark of the Green Phoenixes, a gang of her own creation, is printed all over her back, hidden underneath a simple grey tank-top with a darker grey star and two stripe design. Dark blue jeans and black leather knee-high boots complete her appearance.

(Strength + Weakness x Which is stronger)
Wisdom/ ability to make logical decisions + Easy to hold grudges ie resentment
Which is stronger?
Wisdom.
Trust is a very sensitive subject for Nova. Having spent years of shame from being manipulated by someone she trusted, she is more likely to get upset from even the smallest of betrayals. In certain cases, Nova will use her own wisdom and powers to get something done if she feels she can minimize the risk of failure or do the job better. However, given her years of experience, she does realize the importance of trusting her gang and inner circle and believing in their strengths.

More art of her and other characters coming soon!

Howdy! This is my first journal entry and this journal will focus primarily on storytelling, characters, and other elements of writing and art I find fascinating or am working on.

Making this description for one of my characters was rather tedious, as I have to account for the fact that I may want to change her design in the future. But for now I feel satisfied with how I’ve handled her so far, thanks to tips and advice I got here on Deviantart and Youtube on writing three-dimensional characters and making memorable designs that revolve around personality and background. More characters are definitely to come in the future and I’m very excited for what I am planning.

I understand there are some things that others won’t be able to understand at first but nonetheless I’m interested in feedback, advice, criticisms, etc. Art of this character is coming soon.
Seawing vs Great White
This was kind of a rushed watercolor painting (i did it for someone’s bday since they are huge fans of the Wings of Fire series) but overall I don’t think it’s too bad. Watercolor mixed with brush inking and dip pen inking for the finer details. Btw the shark I don’t believe is in the series, it was just an extra touch.
