Custom Characters

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.

Social media is ruled with baffling codes and algorithms, so it’s no wonder we feel lost at sea.

Custom characters affectionately known as “Mini Mes” are my stylised digitally drawn, illustrations.

Each one is based on a real life person and are a fantastic way to create an online persona.

Cartoon Character

Cartoon Style

The Cartoon style is original Mini Me characters. These are drawn in my signature style, which is a take on the chibi “cute” style. These iconic characters have larger heads and wide eyes on a smaller body.

Realistic Character

Realistic Style

The newest style, requested by many customers is a more realistic style, still with a cartoon flare. Using clear photos of you, I can create an uncanny likeness of you, right down to your hair and body shape.

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.
