Sketchblog Archive for Categories: Original Characters

Characters from personal stories, roleplay, and what have.

Examples from the Sketchmarker Brush review. After getting a small sets for a bunch of other recent marker reviews and having a selection of colors to play with, it was kinda hard to go back to my usual “just a few colors” strategy of justifying for-review purposes.

Wanted to doodle a cover for this year’s project since I think this is the closest I’ve ever come to the spirit of the event, despite 17 prior years participating. Didn’t have the energy for color though. I also still don’t really know what any of my characters look like either. I don’t really visualise much when I write…

It’s been so long since I’ve made new characters… that weird inconsistent stage where I’m still trying to figure out what they’re supposed to look like is kinda frustrating. Is this dude’s hair wavy or not? Is it white or blond? How long is it?? Everything is different every time I draw him, but I don’t know which is right.

#cringetober for today’s October prompt roulette, day 12: Demon OC, except I’ll up the cringe and here’s the demon/angel hybrid OC. 

This was an OC I had in middle school and high school that took a lot of visual cues from CLAMP’s X, of course. Second pic is from 2003! I think I might’ve traced or at least heavily referenced a picture of Kamui for it, lmao.

A lot of my OCs from that era have gone through updates through the years to make them more sensible and palatable to current-me, but I never figured out a good way to update this one.

At some point winged humanoids started to really piss me off from an anatomical standpoint, but they were too core to this character to remove, so into the decommissioned OC bin he went. :V

#OC_tober day 5: Nightmare.

My original October plan was to find 31 prompt lists and then do a prompt a day from a different list, but I didn’t have the energy to actually hunt down 31 lists to start with so I guess I’m just finding them as I go and doing whatever days I feel like?? Whatever!

This one is from an OC-tober list from @/fayren on Twitter.
