PostSubject: Character Inspirations   Fri Sep 11, 2009 1:58 am

So who/what inspired you to create your characters? Post and explain here.

Here are mine. Very Happy

Dr. Ed is based off of Dr. Faust from Shaman King in case no one noticed. xD Even his history is similar...he's basically a bad parody of Faust, hahaha. I really like his twisted, tragic love story. I have a thing for those. xD I alsot gave him a name that I thought sounded cool. xD

Alice is based off Alice in Wonderland. Pretty obvious with the bunny and all, huh? Her last name is from Lewis Carrol. (I'm not really creative with names... >3>) After I made her, I found out that her history is kinda like the one from the American McGee's Alice game, with her parents' deaths and her insanity. I swear I had no idea until I found out about the game. ><;

Loki...well, I named him after the Norse trickster god because I wanted a fun character. I also just wanted to draw someone with spiky green hair. xD Actually, when I think about it, his hair kinda looks like Jak's from Jak & Daxter...Anyway, I spent the least amount of time on him at first, but now that I'm actually getting back into mythology, I'm thinking a lot about how to make him more of a significant person...spirit...thing, because, well, he's pretty much the weakest, youngest, most insignificant Spirit in the collab! xD Good thing I left his bio pretty open, hahaha.

Well my inspiration usually comes from random objects (like my friend Tiffany).
:3 When I drew Igor I was thinking of BioShock's Dr. J.S Steinman and staring at my creepy Victorian Doll (I have one just to freak people out), so I thought, hey, why not a creepy mechanical doll! Izthibellzi was inspired by the words "crazy dead aunt".

Now Seymour's name comes from Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors.
.w. I saw this adorable man in the court and had to try to draw him.
Pft. I'm not a fantastic artist so it came out soooo much different.
I was kind of swoonin' over Loki and made Seymour smog because I thought it WOULD BE AWESOME IF LOKI HAD AN EPIC SIDEKICK!
V__V Unfortunately Seymour didn't become very epic and more of an authority figure.

Most of my other original characters sprout from food and lamps .__.

Sam:
Is actually somewhat based off a lot of traits I found in myself. (She's just more awesome) Her love for cats is based on me. The fact that I made her a tomboy is simply because I've read many Manga's where the girls typically are girly and wear a lot of skirts and stuff. I wanted to try and branch out a little bit from that. Her name is just a name I've always liked and seemed to fit her character. The odd hair loops are something I once doodled at school and was planning on using it for a manga I was going to start one day, but I changed my mind.

Alexander:
I was doodling and he kinda just came out, I thought of a quick bio. Overall I spent very little on him. Not much to say really.

Seion:
Well......I make a variety of character but practically all of them have a messed up history making them emo, shy, crazy, mental, or just totally happy. So like Seion was destined to be a blood murdering psychopath. XD But the leopard part was because I am, addicted to wolves and canine sort of animals. So I wanted to challenge myself and make a feline like character again. She is also based of the Cheshire Cat, because I LOVE HIM! (Most of my cat characters are based of the Cheshire Cat I have two with the distinct stripes.) I also usually make my characters with intense super powers that are kinda elemental. And their weapons are usually small, swift, and easy to carry. So I made the huge @$$ sword to make it fun and interesting for her.
That's it for Seion! I think.....XD

Leon:
(YOU KNOW WHAT I JUST REALIZED.......LEON AND SEION RHYME!! HOLY SH*T XD I AM OFFICIALLY AN IDIOT XDD)
Okay so aside from my revelation, Leon was made because I love making emo kinda guys with longer hair and cool hair colours like Brown and Crimson. He is also Italian and French because I just started making European people. I used to just make Japanese people. So practice dammit!
His has a hoodie because I need to practice making people with hoods on. Kinda hard XD And his outfit was made because I just went to Hot Topic and the ideas just flew into my head. Everything else like history, as I explained above, is cuz I torture them! Mwahahahahaha!
His personality is because of the history and his karate is because I used to take karate and I didn't want to have him with a weapon. Fire cuz well......I LIEK FIREZ.
That's it....I think XD
Oh and his personality with Dogs because I LOVE dogs.
I has/had 5 dogs in my lifetime and I LOVE THEM. I grew up with them <3
Okay so that's enough and yay!

@Severin: Ah, I remember Little Shop of Horrors! The songs are so catchy in that musical. xD

@koneko-chaan: I really like Sam's hairstyle, it's so cute! ^^

@Fire: Yay for Alice in Wonderland references! Very Happy I never realized Seion and Leon rhymed till you pointed it out. xD

Just to join in the fun~

Ms Parosol was based off my other character, Mr Umber-Ella, who I based of the millions of umbrellas I saw in China Very Happy They were all big and lacey. So, I saw an acrobatic show and they were juggling around these pretty parasols with flowers and suns on them, which did, inspire the parasol she has XD

Seiren: Well, I mainly made her because at the time there were no water spirits (if I'm not mistaken). I thought it would be a tragedy if we didn't cover all the basics-- you know: fire, water, air, and earth. So yeah. She's a narcissist because a description I read about mermaids implied that they were. I liked that idea so I went with it.
Her name is Seiren because it's just one letter off of Siren.

Collin: Collin was made simply because I like the cuter types... So I always gotta have one. Anyway, he's an anti-human because I thought we needed some more of those. ^_^ I developed his story and personality based on that. And that's pretty much it.

Zachary: Zachary was made to fit into Collin's backstory. I origninally was going to have his wife die of some kind of disease or something, but I decided that would be kind of cheesy and I liked the idea of her running off with someone else. (It leaves room for her to come into the story if I feel like it)
