Unpopular Opinion series

Unpopular Opoinion Stamp by kevintheradioguy

Now, before we start, I want to remind you it is called 'Unpopular Opinion' for two reasons. First of all: it might be unpopular, which means, it might be far from what you are used to hear, and might be the opposite of what you, yourself, think. Secondly: it is an opinion, which means it is the view of one single man, and not the universal truth. If you can not get over one or both these facts, please, stop reading now.
And not because I don't want hate comments (frankly, I actually do not care about hate mail, and I'm serious about not caring), but because I do not want people reading it to get irritated all become all nerves.

Vol. 1 - On tracing
Vol. 2 - On Mary Sues
Vol. 3 - On Lion King

Good character development memes

Journal Entry: Sun May 10, 2015, 5:49 PM

I've decided to redesign main characters for the story, and I'm having some quite hard time understanding both how they work, and what I actually want from them. Therefore I'm trying to find some good memes/challanges/quizes/etc. to fill out and see what (and who) I'm dealing with. Anyone has some stashed, maybe? Or maybe you've done some yourself?

Basically I'm not looking for a basic 'name, race, gender, height, eye colour, tattoos/piercings' things there are thousands around, but more in-depth memes that will allow to look deeper into a character and understand one (quality over quantity!). Something alongside of:

Character Development QuizYour character is in a stable relationship of some description (if they are not in a relationship in the canon of your story, assume this hypothetically). Your character discovers that their partner has been cheating on them. How does your character react?
(Ideas: Does your character panic or assume it was a misunderstanding? Will their feelings change as they "cool off"? Will they storm out without a backwards glance or seek resolution? Would they forgive their partner?)
Does your character hold any religious or otherwise existential beliefs? If so, what inspired them to hold those beliefs? If not, why?
If you asked your character what his/her favorite color is, what would they say? Is there any reason they resonate with that particular color?
Does your character have any deep-seated fears? Do these fears motivate how your character acts in his/her day-to-day life?
(Ideas: Mentioning phobias are OK, but think beyond phobias. Does your character wo

As an example of a challenging and interesting quiz for character development.

EDIT: please, stop being captain obvious or pathetic philosophers. It's a simple question that deserves a simple answer, not your 'I think it's better to X', 'Idk, but Y works for me', jesus christ, just ignore the post if you've nothing to answer on a matter!

Throughout the history every mystery ever solved has turned out to be not magic.

find my sketchbook on tumblr


thank me for the watch | thank me for the fave
welcome me in your group | welcome me on DA

thank you.

:bulletred:Who are you?
Valentine Kristoff, who often represents as mr.Killoy on other websites. I'm a [Russian] writer and illustrator who currently finds himself in game industry. 'Hey you' is quite acceptable.

:bulletred:If you know German/Russian/Polish/Spanish/Belarusan why don't you speak to me in it?
DeviantArt is an international website, wrote in English; I consider it to be very impolite to communicate in other languages in the open. For such 'private' acts there's a note system. Or Skype. Or E-Mail.

:bulletred:I'm so awful, but I want to make a trade with you!
I get that a lot, actually. Go on and ask! Don't underestimate yourself, I love art trades. I find a lot of art amazing (and you will be very mistaken if you consider that my likings are among deviantArt tops), perhaps yours is one of them. Anyway, it won't hurt to ask.

:bulletred:Do you do requests?
If I feel that way, of course. But I will lie if I say that my 'deviantArt friends' have no priority in this question. It's pretty much like getting approval in DAO to learn new specialisations. Or you just might have an amazing character I'd love to draw. Also, watch out for the journal - I have kiribans and giveaways.

:bulletred:How do you put art in folders without putting it to the 'Featured'?…

:bulletred:How do you make text so small/big/centred/subtitled?

Preferable character gender? >there's a comment explaining<
