Guys, I’m in a terrible situation. I have this book planned out to write. A shorter novel. And there’s this character that’s one of the main characters. And I CAN’T SEEM TO GIVE HIM A FACE!!!!!
I can’t start writing until I can picture this person clearly in my head. So… there’s some things I know about him, actually a lot of things, that I’m gonna tell you guys and so maybe someone can draw a picture and show me and I can see if that can become my character? Oh, and BTW, on the character exchange art topic, most of the art pictures I couldn’t see, cause there was some link to facebook or yahoo or who knows what that I couldn’t do. I saw the picture like Silvera, and Taren, and Daeus, and those, that were actually on here, so if you do a picture, could you please put it directly on here and not make a link? Thank you.
So, here’s what I know.
His name is Ollister B. Tempus (yes, like the Latin word for time) He lives in modern day, but very secluded from the world, over in the English country-side. He is around thirty five to thirty nine. His hair is all and no colors really; brownish/blondish/darkgreyish color, and sort of wavy and coarse. His eyes are grey. His nose is soft lined, and turned up ever so slightly at the end. He has a soft face, almost childish in shape, but not chubby, and still very mature. He is not tall, or short, or fat, or skinny, or muscular, or wimpy, or jolly, or grave, or old, or young… or anything really. He is very mellow and ordinary. He is relaxed, and lives in a grand mansion in the woods. He wears vests all the time, and loves checkers, tea, cookies, architectural details and intricacy, walking in the rain, (when he does he always carries this tattered blue umbrella, even though he never uses it) drawing fantastical creatures, roasting marshmallows in the sitting room fire, riding his tandem bike solo, (possible, but difficult) and singing to his pet bird.
There. Can you draw him?
Anyone else know any more artists to tag?April 17, 2017 at 3:52 pm #30869

Thanks Kate. I just love this character, and he really needs a person of his own. He’s really suffering for like of not being able to be pictured clearly.April 17, 2017 at 4:49 pm #30876
@Anne-Of-Lothlorien well… here he is. Don’t think he looks right, but just in case…
Actually he ended up uncomfortably like a younger Bilbo. 😛April 17, 2017 at 8:05 pm #30896April 17, 2017 at 8:06 pm #30898April 17, 2017 at 8:07 pm #30899April 17, 2017 at 8:11 pm #30901
@Perfectfifths *sigh* I totally missed the English gentleman look that I was aiming for…April 17, 2017 at 8:14 pm #30902April 17, 2017 at 8:15 pm #30904
@ethryndal But he’d be great for some other, younger character. Just ‘cuz it was drawn to be one character doesn’t mean he can’t turn into another if he doesn’t work out 😉April 17, 2017 at 8:17 pm #30905
