Character Profile 2.0

Presently my most faved deviation is Character Profile. Every time someone faves it or shares their completed version with me, I tend to look back at the original. There are just little things that have irritated me since I first made it. First, the lines are WAY TOO thick. Second, the little attribute chart is hard to read...for me anyway. I always wind up having to count the dots to make sure I mark it right.
So, I revised it a tad. Just a tad. I also colored it to match the dA colors. I uploaded the original .xcf file (Gimp File) in case anyone wants to edit it. If it gives you any trouble, let me know.

Rules for Use
1) Credit me if you post it anywhere.
2) DON'T remove my signature from it or I WILL EAT YOU!!

Character Profile made with Gimp.

Made: January 7, 2011

BTW. The three blank boxes in the top right are for a profile pic, a personal quote, and a theme song. Course you can use them however you'd like.

FAQ
Q: Can I use this?
A: So long as you follow the rules listed above, then yes.  You can use this.
Q: Can I make changes?
A: As long as you follow the rules listed above (Ex: credit me as the original creator if you post/publish it somewhere), then yes.  You can make changes.
Q: What does DoB, Occup, Affil, Class, Beast, etc mean?
A: First off, they can ultimately mean whatever you'd like them to mean.
Second,
DoB = Date of birth (birthday)
Occup = Occupation (job)
Affil = Affiliation (the group they are associated with or are loyal to)
Class = Class or Classification (this is basically open for interpretation...it can be a specific job title, a classroom number, or anything else you deem appropriate)
Beast = Animal (spirit guide, alternate form, a summon, a general theme, etc.)
Spirit = Magic/Chi/Spirit Engergy (could refer to the strength of one's magical attacks or the overall depth of their magical reserves)
Strength = strength (raw physical strength)
Speed = speed (physical speed and/or agility)
Endurance = constitution or stamina (Ex: how long a character can engage in an activity before collapsing from fatigue, or how many punches a character can take before being epicly PWNED)
Intelligence = intelligence (a character's general ability to analyze and learn from the world around them, can also include general common sense)
Resolve = Will (a character's general strength of character and willingness to stick to their guns...so to speak...for example, can this character be easily placed under mind control, or can they be easily persuaded to do something)


Photoshop Version I've gotten several requests for a Photoshop version of this since people have a hard time opening the Gimp file. So, here you go: elvendeathmarch.deviantart.com…

He seems pretty cool. :D
Sorry for taking so long to respond.
JokuSSJ's avatar
No problem, I'm glad to see you like him.

I really love this template, when I saw it I couldn't resist using it for my original character. Here it is, I hope you like him...

I'm glad you like the template. It makes me happy to know that other people find it useful. :D Btw, your character seems pretty cool. I couldn't read some of the finer print, but he seems like a pretty chill guy. :D
JokuSSJ's avatar
Thank you very much, he is a pretty cool guy who likes new things and help his friends. About the finner print, I had some problems with my PC and that is the result, but to sum up his powers and abilities (You can go to the profile description and read a more detailed explanation):
1) His body and mind are at the Peak Human Level.
2) He can release pheromones to make people near him more angry or lustful.
3) He can use Nature Magic and Teleportation Magic. With Nature Magic, he can call the forces of nature to his aid and teleport himself, with the first he can make any animal or plant his new friends, make natural environments grow faster and stronger among other uses, but he can only teleport if there’s some life energy to go near it, kind like with the Instant Transmission from Dragon Ball Z.
4) He is able to replicate the super powers that are used on him.
5) He can protect himself from any Hax or Broken ability or event.
6) He can transport his mind and soul to any fictional world and have adventures as a new character.
Also, this character powers and world were based using two CYOA: Change is Good (memestatic.fjcdn.com/large/pic…) and Fictionland (img.fireden.net/tg/image/1508/…)
I'm glad that you like him, this make very happy, Thank You. Love :happybounce: CURSE YOU!

You are very welcome! And thanks for explaining some of that for me. He seems like a pretty tough dude.

Thanks also for the watch and fave. :D
JokuSSJ's avatar
You're welcome and yes, he is pretty tough :D (Big Grin)

So is he for a story or anything?
JokuSSJ's avatar
No, he is more like my ''avatar'', I created him just for fun and imagine myself as him in this awesome world in which he lives. So, he is pretty much a ''fun character'' that represents my love for freedom and adventure.

Oh I gotcha! He's like a persona then? That's pretty cool.

I love this template so much!

I'm going to credit you big time for making this. I've been looking for a good template (and I'm not all that good at making one...) so I can't thank you enough.

I tried to open the file in my art program, FireAlpaca, and it won't work. I don't think FireAlpaca can use .xcf files. Is there any way you could make it into a .psd or .mdp? I'd appreciate it--I really want to use this!

I am sorry about taking forever to check my messages.  -_- My shame is endless!

I converted the original file into a .psd file. I don't know if you're even still interested though. I'm so sorry! I'll link you to the .psd file version.  I hope it works.

Heya, this template for making characters is really helpful! ^^ It's inspired me too in making a 'place profile' template. If it's ok, I kind of went off the layout you used for your character profile. Of course, I will mention that the format is pretty much yours in the description :) I just made adjustments to making it suited for making up places rather than characters. Anyways, awesome work!
