In which I present to you a cute little avatar making app that can be used for creating characters.
I’ve been playing around with this adorable little app called “Doodle Face.” I used it to make pictures of the characters in my novel, and then I used the share feature to email those pictures to myself so I can print them and pin them where I can see them as I write.
For example, here are my two major characters:
Now I can give them the exact features I want to, and I don’t have to creep friends and family out by having pictures of google-image-result strangers on my bulletin board.
Of course, because I’m me, the immediate application that occurred to me before I thought about using it for writing was to create the characters from Les Miserables to look exactly the way I imagine them in my head when I read. And I did just that. So, you know, that’s an option too.
The unfortunate thing is you can only have 6 boys and 6 girls. If you make any more after that, then it will start deleting people. It won’t even warn you. I didn’t know this, and Enjolras got deleted.
I almost cried. But if you email them to yourself and save them elsewhere, then it won’t matter.
So yeah, that’s what I’ll be procrastinating with for a while. Thought that my fiction-writing followers might want to check it out as well.
Have a lovely day!
