Banner Designs

I recently created these character banners for a role-play I had attended on Discord.
After a long day of job browsing I unfortunately did not do as well as I hoped.
It is taking me some time to get better adjusted to a "young" Allen and Edgar Wither, as they had originally been intended for use as older adults.
In addition, it is taking me some time to discover which descriptions best suit them.
Body language, aside from physical appearance, is important for me to capture accurately as the movement of someone's body
is the first thing I tend to notice about a person, especially a fictional one.

I found these banners helpful for minimizing potential confusion. I switch between perspectives frequently. I would like to make use of these banners again. They were easy to make and immensely helpful. Note, the artwork being made use of is not my own. The illustrations were created by an artist called Sackcloth & Ashes. As for the image being made use of as a backdrop, the backdrop is an image of Camp Lassen and appears to be the property of Golden Empire Council, Boy Scouts of America. Unfortunately I did not find the photographer, but when I do, I will give due credit. I had heard complaints from other roleplayers about un-credited artwork and photography, so I have decided to begin giving formal credit despite this account not being made use of for commercial purposes.
Bizarre Late Night Thought: what if the original concept of a vampire was inspired by someone who had a hickey on their neck and didn’t want to own up to where it came from? “I’m serious, mom, a creepy monster that subsists on blood and can’t survive in sunlight crept into my room and tried to suck my blood. I scared it away with garlic... it turned into a bat and flew away.”

I mean... it was a joke 😂 That said, hickeys and needing to cover up forbidden romances span all cultures so who can really say! Stranger things have happened than myths all stemming from one thing (again, I’m kidding, if that wasn’t clear LOL)

I know. I am super sorry for inturrupting your joke with mild vampire lore. It was rather funny.

You’re forgiven! 😂 Actual vampire lore is really interesting, but the 1am brain goes where it wants to.

Usually ya post an interest check and see if you get anyone who wants to do it with ya. Either one on one or group depending on how many people you're after to do the RP with.
If 'just artist things' is making weird faces at yourself in the mirror, 'just writer things' is making noises to yourself because you're trying to figure out the right way to write out this scream your character is making.
I have no idea what to do on this site o-o;

Not to fear, I'm here! I'd recommend first checking out the RpNation Handbook - just all the rules and stuff you should know before starting. Most importantly in the Handbook are probably the Community Guidelines and the Recruitment Rules, but feel free to look at everything else in there, too!
If you ever need to get back to the handbook, you can find it again by going on the front page and clicking on "Community Hub". It's one of the very first subforums at the top.
Check out the rest of the Community Hub, too! Lots of helpful info there to help get you started RPing.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. Seriously, there's no such thing as a dumb question. When I joined, I had to ask for help because I didn't know where the button was to post a thread. It happens to the best of us. This is what we're here to help with :)

Thank you so much!

I think I'm slowly starting to get the hang out it. The layout is similar to the site I usually rp on, there's just a lot more people and it's more heavily moderated, and I'm struggling just a bit to get into the swing of a new community lol

I'm too much of a puss to get a tattoo ;3; I don't handle pain well and I've heard horror stories around my parts about artists not washing their tools well ;3;
I normally love winter, but not being able to fall asleep for a full hour because my feet are freezing (and I cannot sleep with cold feet) is a special kind of torture.

I have a heated blanket that goes over my duvet (only way I keep from freezing at night lol) but a heating pack under the covers might work.... my only worry is falling asleep with it in the bed. Not sure if that would be a problem or not. Might just do it anyways lol. Thanks for the suggestion ❤ when I’m at my parents place I just cuddle with the dog but alasssss no warm doggo for 8 months of the year haha.

I've found that sleeping with the heating pack under the covers doesn't cause too much of an issue! If it's just one of those bean bags you can throw in the microwave, it'll cool off during the night. Usually what ends up happening is I kick it off the bed in my sleep lol.

It literally was 70 degrees here the other day and I'm dying for it to feel like winter. No snow this year I guess....
