Windsonde: Faust 2015 by PhantomStalker
Windsonde: Faust 2015
Wanted to redraw Faust, my art hasn't really improved and totally cheated with the fledgling version of him with my old drawing. Happy it's starting to be active again. Hopefully I'll finally be able to RP with him ;-; I know I have his parents being a panther or something and I had Faust as a caracal but I like his larger size more than the big ears so I'll stick with the big cat. I also kinda like the sloped back since I always see him with a really powerful front body and not being much of a runner.-

Bigger version-www.furaffinity.net/view/15794…

I can't remember the term but back before I graduated highschool I had really thought about what my characters would look like outside an anime style cause I was trying so hard to visualize. And try to start pushing way from the anime(I'm still trying) So I spent a long time trying to look at people and voices to help me avoid 'same face' syndrome and give my characters unique faces. Totally unplanned, when the first hobbit came out, I found out about Richard Armitage and I'll be honest, I  thought he was hot so I wanted to know what he's been in...the first thing I watched was BBC's Robin Hood when he played Guy.

He.Was.Spot.On.Raymond(A vampire OC of mine))
All he needed was a ponytail. RA as Guy had the leather clothes, the black hair,blue eyes,tall, grouchy, big nose and a perfect creeper look how I always imagined Took a long time to get here by PhantomStalker and it helped me solidify how I wanted this character to look. I mean, I will never find the perfect face for my ocs, most of my main cast don't have celeb faces at all(And I know there's a lot of people out there who use celebrities for their characters faces, especially those who don't draw and those who do and are embarrassed to admit so.) so I just try to look at people and pick out features that I think would look like them. I mean, compared to Sandro 2010- He's full of it by PhantomStalker vs Sandro 2014 Sketchdump of 2014 by PhantomStalker I mean more on the paper sketches but still, his face his more defined.Funny story- originally for Sandro to find a face it was Tom Cruise ROFL. Didn't last long, I liked the larger nose though on an elf.And that's why I went to him first.

Also while looking for voice(yeah I'm OC obsessed)- I loved Gary Oldman's voice in Quest of Camelot -it was almost spot on for Meldarinn, I could see it. And so I went to watch Dracula...Gary Oldman 15 years ago(he's still old then haha), YES. Now I'm not hunting for 50 of the hottest celebrities out there and stick their faces on my OC's but they're out there and there's a bajillion of available reference pictures online of every fucking angle basically. I can stare at these people and not feel weird about it. I also found Dr. Cox's wife would totally pull of a Nei'tale, the way I notice I'm attracted to the way the character's are being presented, their personality is similar, maybe I subconciously want the looks to match the personality?

Maybe.

Gillian Anderson as Star and Elijah Wood as Kelnar..that's it.

One of the BEST things I did, was I really was having a hard time trying to make Zanifer not look like Sandro...I went on Morph thing, went through like a million combinations of man faces and I think in the end I used some random Native American, an Asian guy and Orlando Bloom and pooped out Zanifer's reference face for me. It's a small single image and poop quality but it's great and it helped immensely. I recommend the site to everyone who needs help with character faces to make them more interesting and none of my other characters look like him.

I've been trying very hard to have a diverse array of faces with such a large cast.

tldr;

What are your guy's opinions on the matter? Is is ever appropriate and when is that? Should using celebs to help work on a character's face he as frowned upon as it already is, or only if someone has no idea what they want the character to look like before lots of development and physical features you want beforehand so they just pick the hottest person they can think of and say 'that's my character'?


i know I've mentioned this before but I wanted to actually wrote a whole thing out about it.
