Okay, let me get a few things down right here in my small introduction: this was made to educated those who seem to have a 'small' issue on making historically and correct "Monster High" characters. I honestly am getting tired of logging unto this page and seeing these crappy, and poorly done characters. (Not only image wise, but "fan fiction" atau "biography" wise) anda know who anda are, so I suggest anda read this to help anda improve. If anda don't take kindly to this note of criticism... GTFO off of the internet, and spare everyone of your mindless "arguing".
Recoloring an image of a main character, does NOT make them an original one. (Credit: F NO! Monster High FanArt on tumblr)
____________________________________________________________________________ First, let's start off with making your character based off an unknown monster....
~ I'm pretty sure that the whole point of creating "Monster High" was to shed new light to some monsters that people didn't really know about. (Or, present them in a way that no one would have really expected) But, in this fandom, most people seem to exclude this whole idea. anda always see characters being related to the "common" and "overused" monsters; vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies...
If anda want your character to be unique, try doing some research
and find out about a monster people don't really know about. But, please, dear me please
: make sure that the thing anda choose to be their parent is a MONSTER.
* A few examples people use, whom are not monsters; gods/goddesses, murderers from movies/past, angles, sirens, nymphs, dryads, fairies, animals... Now, let's get some of your facts straight...
~ While your finding their parent, make sure that anda make their son/daughter historically and physically correct. anda don't want them to be related to a basilisk and have acak wings and cinta musik they would have never heard of during their time of existence.
Let me use a common example people do; with vampire characters, people usually make them up to 1,500-2,000 years old, right? Well, if they're going to be that damn old make their background, interests and likes what it would have been like during those spans. anda just can't make them like, I don't know, Lady GaGa and leather when they're most likely from the Victorian era.
And they don't all have to be related to DRACULA. For Christ's sake, Dracula cannot have children, do anda understand that? (This is what bothers me with Draculaura as well... why did he bite her of all children?) Anyways... starting to get off topic...
The lebih correct with their parent the character is, the least likely you'll have to worry about them being bashed. Now for their family/relationship issues...
~ Please, please, please, please, please
do not make them related to canon/main characters from "Monster High"! This only causes big problems, and big gaps in their backgrounds. Making them 'friends' - alright. But, related? No.
Now, relationships... I can understand if anda make your character like one that isn't in a relationship, but if anda make them get into one with a character that's already in one... HELL TO THE NO.
I especially hate it when the creators just make up these reasons for the actual couple to break up. "oh i tagihan, dun luv yhu anymor!" atau "u cheeted wid me on her?? u btch!!" NO. It does not work that way. anda cannot just make, I don't know, Draculaura and Clawd break up because anda want your character to be with him. Give a good reason why their breaking up, not just "oh luk, tht gurl is so prtty! bye Draculra!" NO.
I'm sorry, but - just keep away from anything having to do with the canon characters; it just messes up your whole character. Now for presentation, kiddies!
~ Please, if you're going to make an image of your character; use a damn base
. That is what they're there for. Just coloring over an image of a canon character is not only lazy, but it just looks awful. If anda want people to like your character, at least make them look good.
And if you're using a base... please credit the one who made it. I cannot stress that enough. If anda take their base, use it without crediting, it's like stealing - would anda like it if someone took an image that anda made and didn't credit you? Be open-minded to the opinions of others, please.
~ Okay, seriously, if someone takes their
time, out of their
hari to give your character a fair review/critique - don't last out at them just because they berkata a few things were wrong! Doing that will only make anda seem like some rude, and narrow-minded dick head that can't even take a review.
If anda can't handle someone giving their honest opinion on a character that anda made - get off of the internet, like, seriously now. If anda can't handle a review that will help anda improve
the initial outcome of your character - just don't even bother posting it here, on the wonderful, biased
world of the Internet.
* I hope anda enjoyed this, and I hope that it will aid your character makers to not make the same mistake twice.
This is an example of what NOT to do. (Credit: F NO! Monster High FanArt on tumblr)
