100Q to Develop a Character
100 Questions to Develop a Detailed Character
Ever have trouble deciding what side of an argument your character will take? Do you have trouble remembering small details about your character, and often change them accidentally in the middle of a story? Try this list of one hundred questions to solidify your knowledge of your character. Feel free to use this and post it as its own deviation. Just please link it to me in a comment if you do. Try to answer the questions in as much specific detail as possible. This is for you, so there is no use in cheating on it. I would suggest doing two for each character: one for the beginning of your story, and one for the end, to reflect the changes that happen.
1. What is your character's name? Do they have a nickname?
2. Is your character male or female? What is their sexuality? What role does it play in your story?
3. How old is your character? Does their age matter to them emotionally or socially?
4. How tall is your character? Does it affect the

Frequently Asked Questions
I get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of you :)


--Making Art--

   

Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper. 
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone else's (I keep them as proof) I

dA: HTML Formatting
What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It's used when making a website, and available to use on deviantART to customise what you are writing.
Once you memorise the HTML, it's pretty easy and fun to use.
You can find some codes on the deviantART FAQ #104, but they don't give you all of them.
You can use the codes I am about to give you in artist comments, journal entries, blog entries, profile pages, and more importantly comments!
Literature pieces have less codes available to use than what I just mentioned, but there's still a fair few you can play around with. :)
especially everyone's favourite emoticons. :giggle:
Bold
Place at the beginning of your sentence and at the end for it to appear in bold.
Example: Bold turns into Bold.
You can also use instead of .
Example: Strong turns into Strong.
Underline
Place at the beginning of your sentence and at the end for it to be underlined.

F.A.Q.
My inbox is flooded with messages and I'm unable to keep up with it. So I made this simple F.A.Q. with questions that have been asked to me over and over again.
Please refrain from asking questions that are already in here. I will most likely not answer them. If you have any other questions, please send me a message or a note. It might take me a while to reply, though.
Please note that this F.A.Q. will be changed from time to time. New questions and answers will be added every now and then.

Could you draw my character?
No. Just no.
I don't do art requests, and I don't do art for free. If you want somebody to draw your characters, please go to the projects forum and place your request the
