She has many flaws and many weaknesses. She's pretty much like me, cept physically (of course) lol and yeah, she's got some godliness to her but it all balances out in the end. She' my everything but would I want her life? No way. Powers maybe.
Even though mine is an anthro, I'm working on making her align to what I like (that's why she's a wolf/fox/husky mix and her hair and eye color, as well as clothing and likes, are exactly to what mine are) and be built like me...even though I am not happy with how I look, but hey...what can I say, I've had two kids in about a year's span, almost two.
I try to be realistic, but I normally only end up successfully portraying a part of myself so there is a small number of characters I relate to closer than others as they portray a part of me, not the whole… Not sure how well I do, but I don’t want to portray myself as something I don’t feel I am, you know? Axe is solitary and happy with it, she's a pacifist, her horns and spines are more for show and defence, but you wouldn't really want to annoy her a lot, she loves the rain and swamps, she's my lightest but most careless character. Gene has learnt violence and anger and snaps easily, she's sociable but never seems to have company, she lost her childhood friend and blames herself, she's my oldest character and my darkest, Axe balanced her out. Gene has recently under gone a hellova setting change, she's unknown by everyone and knows nothing about the place, she has the chance to start over... This is something I'm facing myself at the moment, but not quite so cut and dry. Thaddeus is newest and most undeveloped... He is... the part of me trying to figure out who and what I am, and what I want to be, he's struggled though his own life and still has to struggle, but he knows who he is and is comfortable with it, for the most part, where as I'm just starting out... but he still has those nights when he just lays awake staring at the ceiling trying to understand... All three of these characters are incompatible, just as my own emotions seem very incompatible, Axe and Gene could never meet, Thaddeus wouldn't even want to meet them... I'm either very accepting and care-less about everything and happy in my solitude; angry and frustraited or just plain introverted and self contained, one moment I know me and am happy, then I hate it, then I just don't know anymore, I'm sure that's quite a common state of affairs though, these three are just helping me sort through it.
Tik- my main sona- my little catahoulan X ridgeback hound who i love to peices. She's all my fears, worries, regrets, mistakes and idiocity put into one fuzzy thing. She's a representation of how i really feel on the inside as an ap...apose...opose?......-INSTEAD OF- the way I act on the outside. She the most realistic and personal I can get. She's all my negative. bad qualities insecurites and fears, some exagerated slightly, others not. She's terrifed of people and other animals- hates being touched- but isnt agress just super timid and runs away, she chews and licks at her paws when she's nervous, trembles and yelps and looks for ways out when forced into social situations ect ect ect Tik is paired with my other domestuc dog character Tachi- who is like... some sort of huge personal metphor for someone who will evntually look past all the shit i have going on with my and my severe dislike of being touched ( i punched one of my long time friends of about 5-6 years in the face a few weeks back for hugging me.... didnt go down well D and just ecept me for all my flaws and inconsistencies.
Where as my secondary (newer and less used) sona - Tok ( see a naming theme here?) a golden snub nosed monkey is the representation of my outer self- the person i am to everyone else and my more positive qualities. She's a more light hearted character- and not as deeply connected to me as Tik is. Tok's my recycle / enviromental freak self, she makes paper hats out of discarded newspaper and is teaching her self other things to make, collects dumped bottles and likes to general fashion some sort of wearable item from what ever recyclable stuff she finds laying around. Her best friends my best friends sona ( ~Snowback ) a platipus. And together they have random rants about life and stephen hawking and richard dawkings. She likes to run and climb and explore and be more adventurous and curious.
my character is godliness but has a flaws is a human and a dragon but hated on both sides so just wonder the earth. can transform in to a huge creature uncontrollably but is quite a small dragon and do other weird things too and i have a weird brain.but wont describe that much ..cause im lazy..
Hm. I'd say super powerful... But there is a catch: she can "exist" on two realms at once. In one (which is pretty much a mirror of our own), she's as normal as you or I. In the other, she's seen as a goddess, guardian, keeper, omen, and a myriad of other things.
Its kind of lame though, cause as much as I dislike cliched characters, mine IS cliched. :'<
Not appliccable? (i haven't thoguht about this before, so i'm just goign to think aloud in this post, don't hurt me)
I don't seem to fit in to the whole thing where my headworld is self-matching and my representations of me cannot be put on a powerscale of realistic to ego-enhancing.
I have a couple of "characters" kind of, so to speak. But I barely ever draw them, nor do they have consistent "canon". the only thing consistent they have is the personality.
As for the representation of me, I don't know. I used to use my childhood character Ludjia, who would fit in to the ZHOMG GODMODE category, but now I think of ludjia like an outside force, invisible friend kind of thing, but a non interferring one.
My headworld is basically just my dreams put straight to paper in a very raw form. It is seemingly random imagery and symbolism.
A lot of the characters that appear in my subconcious who I like enought to take not of, usually have godly powers, but not in an overpowered way, as they are rather spesific.
On the internet, I bear the avatar BlueSkyfish on any website but this one. BlueSkyfish is just an obscure mythical creature and has no distinction from other skyfish, however, I seem to be the only skyfish around. ....except from on this website. They are getting more common though...
I don't know where I'm going with this. I represent me as myself I guess. Selfportrait style. But that includes lucid dreaming, so maybe I fit into ZHOMG GODMODE after all. I'm currently doing a uni project that represents my life (theme: dreams), it will show 6 artworks: me painting mountains onto the sky, flying around, turning into a dragon, being blind, killed by tornado, and run over by trains.
Is it bad that every time I try to draw a character that represents me, it turns out male?
Actually, Io is the closest thing to a persona for me :T The rest of my characters lack any sort of background or don't represent me in the least. Hng. But I said Super powerful because Io is that, but is also a nobody because he's a Small God and therefore has like three believers.
Hmm... powerful because of her size, flawed because she won't use that to her advantage, a no body because she was abandoned, basically normal beacuse all my characters are similar to that, and probably more of a refection of myself then I'd care to admit.
Pretty bland because I am. I tried to downplay her a fair amount, I'm sick to death of super characters who refuse their royal pasts, are blessed by the gods, the chosen one, the last of a species, uber speshul for one reason or the other and talk to animals and crap.
I don't really have a 'character' of myself ;A; Well, I do. She was created back in late '06 as a fan character for the Halo series and then she just slowly developed into my 'alter ego'. Her name is Kat XD
She was SO stupidly mary-sue when I made her XDD. She was a shapeshifter, fell in love with the Master Chief and they had like, 5 kids [wtf] and she had 'reversed' eyes [black whites, pupil was white] and she was so stupidly gorgeous XDDD Over the years I've revised her though. NOW She's just a human, no shapeshifting powahs or anything. She runs a maximum security prison about 50ish years into the future, has stupidly long hair that she ties into a braid and then wraps it loosely around her neck. Scars all over the place and partially blind in her right eye, most of the scars and the eye injury come from prison riots. She still needs a lot of refining, but it's still fun to imagine myself as her xDD
I don't take my persona very seriously, i made her so i could make fun of myself, but i never really get around to drawing her. She's pretty much a parody of myself, used to poke fun at my flaws and what not.
Neither of the above. I guess the characters blend in 'okay'-ish with the rest of the world, originally I invented them and later put their species designs into the world, so they're a little out of character and I guess it makes them a little special, but then again, since they're artistic placeholders they don't really have a story going on.
Occasionally, I try to balance them out and make them work 'better' with the world they could be living in.
Mine's a dream of the power I wish I had. The power to protect people, the power to overcome anything. I wish to believe in myself. That is who N.E.R.O. (Neutralize Every Remote Obstacle) stands for and is.
My character is really just an extension of myself. I like to think that she's more beautiful and easier to approach then I could ever really be, except I feel that she is somehow weaker in some aspects. Sure, she has super strength that goes with the usual werewolf, but she's not exactly the type that thrives on conflict. She can be judgmental, childish and a hassle to deal with, not to mention overly-emotional about some things... She even avoids meat like the plague, but she is the most loyal friend to anyone who is willing to accept her for who she is. We're similar in most ways, but definitely not the same. When I'm facing a difficult time, I often think of what she would do and try my best to be open to other people and optimistic about what lies ahead. I guess in that sense, she's also my inspiration to keep me going.
The character that I draw represents me in all my good traits and bad, my temper and my strong affection to name a few. My character is me, I am my character, and I am a plain person so thus the dragon that I draw is plain but built for flight and capable of swimming. Wind/water/ice are the elements I connect with most easily. Still working on avatars and an ID for myself, but still, I know 'what' I am on the inside.
"Me, but drawn as a sparkly yellow bird"? This 'Firequill' thing I use to represent myself doesn't really have any characterisation or any sort of backstory or anything and is more of a way to recognise me visually online without having to use photos of myself... Its development is totally as deep as being of the 'light' element! o_O I don't really have much in the way of characters either, or at least ones that are involved in any sort of plot or have some well thought out (or thought about at all) backstory/characterisation/et cetera and I probably won't until I actually need proper characters for something...!
My primary character is a scientist, therefore an expert in his field, and knowledgeable in a couple others. That said, he has his flaws, generally a sense of detachment from his own emotions and humanity as a whole. That and an intensely narrow focus on whatever he is studying at the time, so he tends to overlook other things.
Really a representation of a particular part of my personality....the part that is cold and analytical and afraid to feel, fearing being hurt.
Mine didn't really fit in any one category, so I picked "a nobody," because she's not exactly well-known and because she prefers to stay hidden/in the background anyway. She's powerful, but not anything super-duper holy cow GODMODE or anything. She's all the good parts of me, basically.
