What makes your character unique?Ok, this has been boiling in me ever since I started drawing back in 2004, so it's time to bitch.What makes your character unique? by alzircon
Keep in mind, I am not targeting anyone personally, but if you find yourself falling in this category, then maybe there's something to think about.
Overly detailed characters.
This is a sub part of the big Mary Sue/Gary Stu culture that particularly annoys me, because it affects me as an artist in this community.
Human/wolf/cat/dog/dragon/hybrid/etc. with several colored hair streaks, a billion piercings, speshul birth marks, tattoos, accessories and other unnecessary shit they have attached to their bodies, clothes or bags. Sound familiar? Yeah, that's probably because it's your main character.
Please explain this to me, because I don't understand the necessity to give one character so many details. Do all of these piercings are somehow relevant in that character's story? Do all those star markings serve any purpose other than OMG LUK AT HUR, SHE'S SO UNIKKKK.:ico
