    I'm debating getting into these. I'm better at writing than drawing, so I might do better to have a simple design and a written profile in the package. Does anyone think that's a thing people would want?

    rigel youve got teeth for a reason, dont you?

    its hard to say! some people really enjoy making characters from scratch, or might feel like, constrained to the profile that you have available? you could write out the profile and say its like optional and buyers can choose to use/draw inspiration from it if they wish?

    I'm not trying to crap on the idea, but I've legitimately never understood these or what they are. Is it like buying the rights to an image and sometimes that's packaged with other content? Are the stories always part of the deal?

    It's buying the rights to a character design which you can use however you want in the future, and no, usually it's just the image. I was just wondering if I could make it work with written ones. I decided to try out the art kind instead to start out with, made a simple little cartoon image I can edit a few different ways.

    Okay, while I work on mine, I'll show off some cute ones I found. How do you like the Ice Cream Cows?

    You can usually find free bases on DA or other art sites that have like, hair, ears, tails, sometimes clothing options, that if you have a program to color them with you can use to make adopts or just images to go along with the written blurbs. if that helps

    eta: you do have to have either sai or photoshop or another program that opens psd files tho

    Here are my first ones! I'll be able to make better-looking ones once I get a better art program but here's a start.

    Trying to make base and CANNOT get face to look right! Argh! Trouble is I don't even really know what I want the face to look like. I'm making monster people with mustelid traits and I can't decide how animal-like or how realistic to go, and no attempt I make looks right and I don't like any of the options I've found in ready-made bases. Hope the custom bases person gets back to me.
