A Novel Idea: Character Pictures (Actually Yes, I Mean PICTURES This Time)

Yo homies! 'Sup?

Ooookaaaaay. I have no idea where that came from. *shakes head* My mind does the WEIRDEST things sometimes.

Ahem.

How's your Saturday been so far? I've been enjoying the aftereffects of being able to sleep in for the first time since the beginning of this month. Our church's VBS was this Monday through Friday, so I've been being kept on my toes trying to get all my writing/reading/sleep in every day. Most times I have to pick two of those three and be happy with that. ;)

But now, without further ado: here's the next ANI post!

The Prompt:
This week, choose some pictures that describe one of your characters. You can use pictures of your character or pictures that describe him/her (or both!). Have fun with this – don’t overthink it! Hopefully it’ll be a nice break from actually writing and help you learn more about your character at the same time!

Again, I couldn't chose just ONE character (horrors!) so I settled on my personal top ten favorite characters... AND an antagonist. Just because. :) Bonus points for those who like the bad guy characters. ;)

This picture is so perfect for his character I really didn't have to bother finding any more. ;)

With a beard or without? What do you think?



Hope those pictures helped give you a better idea of what my mind thinks my characters look like.
Do you think any of them fit the character really well? Do you think some of them don't? What do YOU think my characters look like?
(Send me a link in the comment if you can find a perfect picture to "describe" any of the above characters...I'm always on the lookout for more!)






And, for those of you concerned, the poll has closed for which book I'm reviewing this month and the decision was made. I will be reviewing "The Tinkerer's Daughter" by Jamie Sedgwick.
Keep an eye open for that post! :)

  1. Oh, I love visual posts like this! My favs by looks are Malcolm, Laeli, and Neil Ferrick. Great photos! From Pinterest?

    1. Thanks! I like them too! It helps so much to have a picture in your mind when you need to describe a character in your book. :) Nope, these--except the ones I drew--are from Google.

  2. I like it with the beard. He looks a little more mysterious. :) I really like the second pic of Alyssa, and the first of Chrystal. Nice job!

    How do you find the perfect pictures?

    1. Thank you!

      It took a lot of time and patience. :) And the ability to know exactly how I wanted my character to look...and not give up until I found the perfect picture.

  4. William was perfect. I could just see the humor oozing out from him.
    Neil would be better with a beard (more villianous) but the skunk hair was great too. Or Ferret, if you prefer. Ehem.

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)
