Meibatsu's avatar

DCLover5's avatar
Used Hope it's okay!
Meibatsu's avatar
Yep, it's fine to use! :>
Glad you found it helpful for your character!
Isilia-Delfore's avatar
Thanks for making this, here's what I did for it:…
Reg-D-Fanfiction's avatar
Is this free to use for any character? Or is this exclusive to the SGPA Group?

Because I would like to use it to help develop my character.
Meibatsu's avatar
You may use it to develop your characters if you want!
Just make sure to credit the group for where you found it. :>

So, if I dont have photoshop where do I place my text profile to get it done along with the picture i drew?
Meibatsu's avatar
Oh, and in case you didn't already see, the profile you need to fill in for the photoshop stuff is here:…

So the place where it says to link your pictures, just link it to the image of your hero/villain and I can do the rest.
Meibatsu's avatar
Just submit it to the group. You can put the text profile as the picture's description if that's easiest for you.

I am now just getting back to looking over profiles though, so it might take a while! Sorry for the delay!

Holy crap. o.o

This is totally the most useful character template ever. Yoinking to use for helping to fill out a metric ton of characters floating around in my headspace. Will definitely link back to you, but I'm not sure how many of them will wind up on dA.

What's that Personality Alignment thing I've seen in some of the other profiles? It looks awesome and fascinating, but I don't know where to find it.
Meibatsu's avatar
Oh thanks! Glad you find it useful!

The personality thing is a "base of motivation" categorization I came up with myself (partially based off of Dungeons and Dragons alignments of lawfulness and goodness), so I don't know how useful it will be for you, but you can read about it and use it too if it interests you: [link]
jessytessytavi's avatar
Thanks so much! D&D alignments can be useful, but sometimes they're too generalized when I'm trying to really get into my characters' heads. Your archetype names are really good for conveying that. ^.^

Are you still unsure about some of the archetypes/icons you have listed? because they're giving me ideas...
Meibatsu's avatar
Yeah,. I'd still like suggestions for good archetypes if you can think of them! XD
Arachnid95's avatar
Hey, I love this template! In fact, I used it on one of my own characters and plan to use it for more: [link]
Meibatsu's avatar
Glad you find it useful for your characters! :>
Arachnid95's avatar
Also here's another one. ^^;
Do let me know if you don't want an update every time I use this... :XD:
