Morals and Motivations
First off, what are morals? There are probably a few different definitions, but I'll pull one from the Gage Canadian Dictionary(not quite Oxford English Dictionary, but it'll do).
morals - a. character or behaviour in matters of right and wrong. b. ones principals in regard to conduct
When I talk about morals, I am, of course, referring to the very last one, morals-b. A persons morals generally tie into their reactions to certain situations, and can identify or define their "Moral Alignment", whether they're good, evil, or just a little grey.
One of the best things I think you can do when creating a character, is something I call "situation reactions", where you put your character into a certain situation with limited options and determine their course of action. This is the old A, B, or C. Just try to avoid the "three colours, one flavour" dilemma.
One good one is the Suitcase dilemma.

Supertuts2.0 Intro
Supertuts ver. 2.0
Hello, internet! This is Memfox00, also known as Katie or Kat.
This is my second attempt at helping everybody enjoy superheroes and supervillains to a greater extent with tutorials describing how to create and characterize said heroes and/or villains.
Now, of course, for some obligatory disclaimers:
I understand that many people already know a lot of this stuff, or think they do, and I’m not trying to tell you or anyone else what they should or should not do with a character. It’s not my place, because it’s not my character. You can do whatever you would like, technically, but these are just ways to create a deeper character and world. These are not the only ways, and I would never expect or want anyone to follow my advice to the letter or even word.
That said, the advice I give here, I believe, is some darn good advice, and I would love it if you just read and told me what you think; did you like what I said, did you hate what I said,

Ha Ha ... It's been a while
Uh, hi.

Yeah, so its been about a year. I got my wifi working! Which is great.

This is going to be more of a ... confession, mixed with an update.
Uh, I haven't exactly been ... active online in a long time. A long ass time, and I don't even know. Some people are waiting for a certain request to appear, but, well, here's the confession time.

I don't feel comfortable with art right now. I feel bad saying this, but for a while art has been ... trying, depressing maybe?It's come to my attention that I have some ... personality problems.
I'm a perfectionist, and the fact that I ever felt good enough to put anything up here at all at one point in time is hard for me to believe right now. I look at everything I've ever done, and I ask myself, Did I actually think that was good at all? Why? There are so many problems! Some of you are aware that I've actually cleaned house once before, erasing all of my previous art and starting with a clean slate.

I'm a fan of many things, and my mind tends to work faster than my fingers can keep up. I watch something, and soon enough, I have an entire alternate story thought out, with an outrageous cast of characters, a full plotline, interconnections to the main plot, and I just ... fail to put anything down. I am very proud of my own mind, and how much sheer information I can hold inside. The problem comes when other people can't get in my mind, they can't see the things I see, know the things I know. I can't always use my ability to communicate to my friends what it is I think.

But, then again, I don't really have friends. I'm not that social in the first place, but I prefer to have my friends beside me, where I can show them with my face and body and tone of voice exactly what I'm trying to convey, and Sarah, I know you'll see this, You are a friend, a dear friend, but we don't talk, and it's not either of our fault. You're dealing with some problems right now that I can't help with, and I'm trying to give you space to help yourself, to keep yourself comfortable, so you can contact me when you're ready.

So, basically I've been not doing anything, really. I've been drawing, just not on my tablet, and nothings been getting uploaded, because nothings gotten scanned, because I don't know if its worth moving my junk that I'm surrounded by to even bother to put something up that I don't love, or even like.

And I don't feel comfortable, I feel awful, I know you guys are waiting for me to put something up, but every time I think I did something, ANYTHING good, I just tear it to pieces, comparing it to other peoples art, to other peoples ideas, and I always come up short, and it's not my best, and I refuse to give anyone anything but my fucking best, and it's just not good enough, so I don't feel good enough. And every passing second I'm not doing something I just feel like I'm wasting time, and I constantly check the clock, and everything takes too long, and I don't have enough hours in the day to to what I want.

It's gotten to the point that I find it hard to sleep, I just feel like I should be doing something, anything really, and I just lay there thinking and thinking and thinking for hours.

So, yeah, I know I have some self esteem issues. I don't know.

I don't know.

I guess I'll try to get something up sometime soon. My method before was simply to pump out as much as I could and try to finish one or two things and put them up, but that was ... not satisfying. I want my art to satisfy my self, and maybe even others.

But I'll try to get something up for you guys, soon. I just don't know what it will be yet. Elita, you might want to talk to me, I just don't know if I feel comfortable "walking up to you" after so long.

tl;dr I'm having problems motivating myself, but I'll try for you guys.
The good news: I have a new scanner!

The bad news: DA still won't upload my art. It apparently can't even download it entirely, so yeah.

Oh,hello again?Remember me?I am that guy that request Endless Battle and because I liked it so mutch, I request from you again, you agreed on my second request,your favourit moment from my show RLA. That was a long time ago and I know you said that it would take time and you said that school would make it even harder,plus the fact that the show is still being updated every week means that their might come a new favourit moment for you, but I stil hope that you will do it and that you haven't forgotten it.
