Anonymous asked: What sort of information should you come up with when writing about a fantasy race? How in-depth should you go into creating a culture for them?

fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment:

I would argue… very in depth. It’s important that your reader gets a good feel for how this race lives a daily life… and what kind of things they do, say or believe that makes up their whole world.

Here are some resources to help you out with that:

General

Generators/Resources

Race/Culture Creation

Obligatory Cultural Appropriation Warning

Details

I think this should at least be a good start… best of luck…!

I have trouble with male pony types. Well any pony type really. >v>);;;
So I made this for a reference for myself! I never realized how many tall and skinny ones there was haha. 
Anyways, maybe this will help someone else to——
I didn’t draw the REALLY huge ponies because I don’t think people use their figure much to make OCs.

characterdesigninspiration:

As I’d promised earlier and was requested recently, here’s the sci-fi character generator! There aren’t quite as many options as my original huge generator, but you’re much more likely to get a reasonable character from this one, though I’m sure there are still some odd combos in here.

To play: click and drag each gif to get your randomized character. For things like accessories and extras, you can do more than one if you want. If you’re on mobile or dragging isn’t working for any reason, you can screenshot the whole thing instead.

Oh yeah if you decide to make anything with this, it would be cool if you tag it with ‘characterdesigninspiration’ so I can check it out!
