Lo-Fi Chill Beats for Creativity

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, March 8, 2021



Low-Fidelity (Lo-Fi) Chill-bop Music has played a crucial role over the last year in my ability to calm down and feel at ease. Originally used as background music while doing homework or as a sleep aid, Lo-Fi music has been around for a while. The idea is that it layers ...

Looking at Archetypes Through a Psychology Lens

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, March 6, 2021



We have all talked of and considered character archetypes when designing and building characters.

There are many sets to pick from and it's not really a shocker that most of them, if not all, have their roots at psychology. (I'm looking at you, Carl Jung)

Far be it ...

Back From The Dead

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 2, 2021



So we've talked often about how letting a character die in a story is something that should be used very frugally, because once death occurs, it should be permanent. In most settings, death shouldn't be something that is reversible. If not, it will lose its impact, and the ...

Character Design Brainstorming: The Monster Among Us

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Oct. 10, 2020




We live in a world of routine, predictability, and pedestrian problems. (2020 doesn't count. Much.)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 19, 2020



The witch is different than a sorceress, though their affinity with magic and their powers often can overlap: the sorceress carries status; the witch carries fear.

It's not that the sorceress is not potentially feared or the witch is not potentially respected- it's that the core of their ...

Character Design Brainstorming: The Sorceress

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 5, 2020

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 29, 2020



There are many tropes and many archetypes that we use for character designs. I had a couple of years go (have I really been at it this long!?) done a series of articles on the standard character type/functionality archetypes.

I'm thinking it's high time to explore archetypes ...

The deadline to submit your pitch for the DrunkDuck horror anthology is fast approaching (31/8/2020) so what better time to talk about one shot comics than right now! Short story comics, also known as one-shots, are generally self contained stories. There aren’t as many moving parts when ...
