How I create Three-Dimensional Characters part 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Once upon a time…

I use to print out photos of people who looked like my characters, glued the photos on card stock paper, and then list the name of my character, address, birthday, hair color, eye color, and height, on the right side of each character photo. Then I would slide them into a plastic sheet protector, and put them in a three-ring binder.

I’d dig out this book “The Power of Birthdays, Stars & Numbers – The Complete Personology Reference Guide by Saffi Crawford and Geraldine Sullivan.”  Read the information on each birthday, to see if it fit my character, and write it out long hand on a legal pad. Then I’d slid it behind the photos, inside the plastic sheet protectors.

well, not anymore

Thanks to Canva.com and Pinterest, I don’t have to do that anymore.

Now I make character profile’s on Canva. I save them in my pictures…on my computer and save them in a secret board on Pinterest. I love secret boards! It’s so much easier this way and all the info I need for each character is just a click away.  

This is a sample of my new character profile…

 I make another profile with the name of my character, address, birthday, hair color, eye color, height, all the info I need from “The Power of Birthdays, Stars & Numbers – The Complete Personology Reference Guide by Saffi Crawford and Geraldine Sullivan” and other important information. But, I’m not posting that, because it’s for my eyes only.

I love-making things easier and user-friendly!

Thanks for stopping by
