What in the world are custom characters?
We are in a world where it feels like everyone and their dog are starting their own businesses and social media is ruled with baffling codes and algorithms. It’s no wonder we are all clawing to find a way to stand out.
Custom characters affectionately known as “Mini Mes” are my stylised digitally drawn, illustrations that I created to help you do just that.
Are you considering a Character for your business?
If you are, here are a few things to remember when trying to decide what you’d like:
It’s important while you write your custom character description to remember that I don’t know you in person. Other than your profile picture and a maybe few short messages, I don’t know anything about you so please describe yourself as if I had never seen you before.
What is your Mini Me Character for?
It’s useful for me to know what you will use your character for. This allows me to make sure it fits with your business brand and your vision . E.g- You don’t want a character for work to be pulling funny faces, unless that’s what you do for a living
Think about your appearance
I work predominantly from photographs, so it is essential (especially for Realistic Characters) that I have access to a really good photo of you. Don’t worry if you don’t have any professional headshots. You can just snap an unfiltered, head and shoulders picture with your desired hairstyle.
Natural light is important. So take the photo outside or near a window is best.
Think about the pose. What pose do you want your character to be in? standing or sitting? hands on hips? yoga pose?
What items do you use for work? If you have specialised equipment it can help to make your character relatable.
Favourite piece of clothing/jewellery/accessories . You can have your favourite outfit. It’s as easy as sending me pictures and letting me know how they’re worn.
