For the eleventieth time: What does your character look like

Postby Tary » Fri Oct 31, 2014 9:05 am

This came up in IRC earlier today. I never really thought about what Tary should look like. I wrote his current description about 10 years ago and just kind of stuck with it. But having thought about it a little, I think of Tary as looking like either this:

(Guy on the left)

But that looks a little too cleaned up and suave for Tary. In thinking about it further, I think that Tary looks more like Adrian Belew:

I know it's been done, but what does your character look like?

I was running around a few days ago looking for reference shots for a comic book artist friend of mine who's doing a commission for me and I hit this one picture and went "Well holy shit, it's Clarity", yanno, if she had huge dark circles under her eyes and a streak of white in that hair. :P

Magnilia: There are a few differences in detail as noted in the character description (limited space), but this is spot on.

This is Amante, but with red hair. I was absolutely gobstruck when I saw this and couldn't quite handle "Amante just walked up on that stage!!!" Mannerisms, less accent but only cause I didn't bother making Ama irish, if I had rp'd an accent, this is it. The quirkiness when she sings, everything.. It's so weird :p

..Also Ama's older now, obviously.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson- one of the actors that played the Mountain in Game of Thrones
Nathan Jones- actor/wrestler

I would say Rockk is a mix between the two, although neither of them have his long viking like beard.

Stacy has been scetching some cartoons of UL characters and when she wanted to draw Kaer Gerroz, she wanted some pictures that I thought looked similar. It was just then I realized how much KG post-Rift actually looks like Darth Maul:

Just that his skin is burned instead of actualyl colored red, has blisters and cuts and no horns. Other than that.....pretty close

If you read The Summer Tree (book 1 of the Fionavar Tapestry trilogy) by Guy Gavriel Kay (and you should!), you'll come across a description of the direct inspiration for my character.

Alternately, the relevant passage is here: http://litru.ru/book/?p=167214&page=27

The pictures are great guys! Love seeing the interpretations of the characters through actual images.

I imagine Gray Tones to look like this with icy blue eyes.

I've pretty much left UL (just circumstances), but I found these sketches I did for practice a while ago and thought I'd post. From left to right: Clarity, Narissalys, Solomier, Lilith Cain, Eros, Kaer Gerroz, Samarina. (edit: dang, it cut a bit off - they're all there, if you right-click it and get "View Image".)
Image

And I stumbled across this picture on Deviantart the other day, and thought "Hey - that's my Blue, how did she get there?" Well... correction, it would be Blue if Blue was a whole lot posher than she is. :-)

Well... I was trying to find a gentleman old rotten vampire look. Couldn't find what I was imagining Venom to look like.

That being said I'm sure people have several different ideas of what I look like... HAHAHA
