.:Traits Missing From Today's Characters:.~Something’s Missing~.:Traits Missing From Today's Characters:. by PrennCooder
• NOTE: This is a generally speaking list, again, directed at the major characters of stories/books/movies/television of the modern times. I know there exist characters with these traits; I just think they are rare and should be brought more to attention if you're looking to expand your character diversity and add realism.
• Humility: This is the big one that I think a lot of characters are missing. Lots of the mains I see today don't even have a shred of this or if they do it’s forced into them. How about writing a person who’s naturally humble? These people are amazing. They don’t seek to exalt themselves. They give credit to others.
• Pushover: Unfortunately most main characters I see will push back if the world tries to push them down. But this is SO unimaginably unrealistic. I feel like a lot of people wouldn’t, or they’d try and fail. Some people, if pushed around or pushed down to the ground, will stay d
.:Finding Your Art Style:.YOUR Style.:Finding Your Art Style:. by PrennCooder
• Figure out how you draw first. By this I mean, pay detailed attention to what things you gravitate to when drawing. Like, do you have a tendency to draw very detailed eyes? Do you like to draw round small bodies? That kind of stuff. Keep track of what you are good at and what you need to work on. Your strengths and weaknesses as an artist are what you need to be aware of because they are things that only you will truly know unless you tell the world. For example if you draw very detailed heads but struggle with the rest of the body, maybe a type of cartoon style is best for you and not anime.
• What’s your preferred subject? Are you into realism? Caricatures? Comics? Animals? Anime? Cartoon? Paintings? Know where your passion is. Maybe you don't make a lot of your own characters and prefer to draw fanart, but you find the show style difficult. Keep trying. Maybe tweak the style a bit to suit your strengths as an artist but still keep the character recogni
.:Character Stereotypes To Avoid And Fix:.~Character stereotypes and how to avoid em~.:Character Stereotypes To Avoid And Fix:. by PrennCooder
• WHY: Why are stereotypes bad? They are predictable, boring, annoying, cliché, flat, one-dimensional, need I go on? There’s no advantage to a character stereotype. They water down amazing plots and hinder a mediocre story that could become a great one. I’m not saying at all to avoid predictability so much that your character is all over the place, but, avoid complete stereotyping.
• START: For the sake of simplicity in describing your character to someone else, you may want to use some stereotype wording to paint a quick idea. BUT be careful, and show that your character is more than just that. For example my character Cecelia Hazel is a dumb pretty popular cheerleader with powers. But she’s a kind person who doesn't really get mad. She has powers but she is never a good fighter. She tries martial arts but fails at it. From the assumption of the stereotype “cheerleader” you could assume Cecelia
.:OC Bio Creation Tips And Template:.~Valuable Character Bio Creation Advice And Information~.:OC Bio Creation Tips And Template:. by PrennCooder
• NONO: The BIGGEST nono for bios is putting something like “unknown” or “N/A” in a bio category of a character. First of all, why did you even include that category in your bio just to pass it up? It’s an eyeroll for a serious writer to see these things in bios. Even if the character or other characters don't know their name or even their age or parents, it should ALWAYS be listed in the bio. These are things that everyone has (unless they are a robot).
• CATEGORIES: I have included a blank bio form with all the categories I find to be necessary when explaining an in depth well rounded character. It’s okay to maybe get rid of some categories for simplicity’s sake but some are obviously necessary. On the other end of things, don't add too much! Bios with too many categories are just as obnoxious to fill out as they are for other people to read!! You want to have a bio form tha
.:Fan Character Creation Guide:.~Welcome To The Fandom~.:Fan Character Creation Guide:. by PrennCooder
• FC VS. OC: All fan characters are original characters, but not all original characters are fan characters. An original character (OC) is basically just the most basic way of saying that this is a character you made. A fan character is also a character that you made, but it’s a title specified to fandoms specifically. OCs don’t need to be in a fandom but you can't call your character a fan character if it’s not in a fandom. I will very rarely use the term FC myself because my OCs, while a lot of them ARE fan characters, they have their own books too and I would just generally prefer calling them OCs. I just felt the need to explain the difference here between OC and FC in case you didn't know.
• FANDOM: The fandom comes before the character. Generally speaking, it wouldn’t be good to have a non-fandom OC and then throw them into the canon universe just like that. They might not work in it. It may involve some hefty changes tr
.:Creating Your Next Generation OC:.~Next Generation Characters~.:Creating Your Next Generation OC:. by PrennCooder
• WHAT IS IT: A next generation character is simply just the child of one or more parents who are main generation characters. The simple definition would be that a next generation OC is the kid of so and so. It’s a term easy for me to understand so I haven’t given much thought to people who don't really know its details. Next generation has a lot of possibilities though and if you’ve never made NG OC kids for a story or anything I would suggest at some point in your creative career to try it just for fun. The example I will be using to reference throughout this guide is my character Taylor, who is the child of Danny Fenton/Phantom and Cecelia Hazel-Fenton. (CanonxOC or OCxOC if it’s Aerone).
• ALTERNATIONS: For clarification, next generation is synonymous with the terms new generation, second generation, NG, 2nd gen, next gen, etc. As in, they all mean the same thing: the generation after the “main” generation
.:Starting A Novel Guide:.~Getting Started~.:Starting A Novel Guide:. by PrennCooder
I’m writing this with novels on the mind since I am almost at 30 novels. I have written over 20 additional novella length stories as well with a ton more books on the way. So you could say I know a thing or two about this more than the average person. And it’s about time I made a guide for it! So I hope this thing helps you.
• WHERE TO START: If you are feeling flustered as to where to start writing in your story, DON’T BE! Honestly you can begin anywhere. You can write out of order! I’d say write out whatever scenes you find yourself inspired with and just keep typing till you run out of inspiration. Then add to fill in the gaps and edit where/if you feel the need to. I have never ever EVER written a book in complete consecutive order. So in fact, I encourage it. Writing the scene you are inspired on instead of forcing yourself to write something you're not inspired for just yet will work to your benefit. Readers can tell when writing is

Danny Phantom's daughter and the main character of the five next generation novels I have written! The books start with introducing Taylor and her brothers who have been raised by Vlad with no knowledge of their real parents. When Taylor discovers her best friend is a ghost, one thing leads to another. When they enter the ghost zone they enter the war and people can't just leave the ghost zone anytime they want anymore! If you're curious please check em out and review the chapters if you like it! Only three are posted so far but I'm workin on it. Enjoy!

I love to talk about my Danny Phantom next generation if you have any questions :3 feel free to leave a comment on her page if you just wanna chat too!
If you want to learn about or even draw my characters, just ask me! I love meeting otakus/Danny Phantom Phans who enjoy the show and have non Mary Sue OCs. I'm hyper, usually chatty, and kinda random. I love making new friends but I will not hesitate to block anyone who is rude or creepy. It should be obvious but I make a lot of my own names and species and I do not allow the usage of any of my characters/ideas/etc without explicit permission. As in, I take theft very seriously and if you use something of mine, whether to claim it as your own or whatever, you may or may not get a warning before I REPORT it.
Do not tag me in things that have nothing to do with me at all, particularly raffle posts. I've noticed I get tagged in a lot of em these days and I'm going to start reporting it as spam no matter who it is. I don't mind getting tagged if its for a shoutout or if your piece actually has something to do with me though! Please look at the journals below to learn more about me. Thanks for taking a look at my page!
NEW: My character birth years are in the title of their ref sheets. Now you can figure out their age for whatever year you want
My OCs AgesNEW! I’ve added every character’s birth year to their reference sheet! The reason being that I have had a couple, but not many, people ask me my character’s ages and I don't have any other easy way to address it.
Disclaimer: In case it wasn't obvious, I don't own Danny Phantom or any of the shows I draw fanart for. Unless otherwise stated in the specific picture, I do own the OCs I draw. You are not allowed to reupload/repost/edit my pics/written works/anything generated by me for any reason. If I see that something of mine has been stolen, edited, or redistributed in any way, I reserve the right to report it without warning.
About PrennCooderHi!!! I'm Prenn! Big time Danny Phantom fan!
MisconceptionAside from the misconception that Cecelia is my main OC just because she is drawn with Danny the most, there has also been a misconception that Cecelia is me, based off me, or some version of me when she isn’t and never was. I hate it when people base characters off themselves, so I would never do that. Cecelia and I are very different so I’m making this journal to show how. Wenn is the main character of my gallery, not Cecelia. He is also the character I have drawn the most; I just don't post everything with him in it. I’m just stating these things to clarify because these misconceptions along with people spelling Cecelia’s name wrong are very irritating after a while. So in the future if anyone makes these misconceptions (and I hope they won't) I will link back to this journal.

PrennCooder's Accounts On Other SitesJust figured I would make a journal of this because I just recently changed some of the usernames to PrennCooder so that all the main ones match. So the urls have changed with those.

.:Character Creation Guide:.Creating Your CharacterI feel like I have helped a lot of people. I can make more guides if you want or need em. I just want to know topics! Don't say, like, "do one on writing". That's too broad! Be specific. Say specific details and topics. They might give me ideas for other topics. Even just saying "how to write a novel" would be too vague. I've written almost 30 novels now. They're all different and same with my novellas, they all came into existence differently.
o Overall Character
Writing Your Character
Fan Characters And Fandoms
Focus on personality and interests when making your character and those are the categories that should have the most information because they describe who this person is at a specific point in time, or how they develop over time.
Try to avoid listing standard things about your character that are super predictable or could describe just about anyone. Add details that show character depth and set them apart from the other characters out there. Certain ones you may want to make more memorable than others.
Don’t throw too many diverse things into your character. If your character is all over the place, they will easily lose their identity to the reader. Try to focus on a few main interests or skills for your character to highlight.
Your character sh
