Oh, and in case you didn't already see, the profile you need to fill in for the photoshop stuff is here: meibatsu.deviantart.com/art/SG…

So the place where it says to link your pictures, just link it to the image of your hero/villain and I can do the rest.

Just submit it to the group. You can put the text profile as the picture's description if that's easiest for you.

I am now just getting back to looking over profiles though, so it might take a while! Sorry for the delay!

Holy crap. o.o

This is totally the most useful character template ever. Yoinking to use for helping to fill out a metric ton of characters floating around in my headspace. Will definitely link back to you, but I'm not sure how many of them will wind up on dA.

What's that Personality Alignment thing I've seen in some of the other profiles? It looks awesome and fascinating, but I don't know where to find it.

Oh thanks! Glad you find it useful!

The personality thing is a "base of motivation" categorization I came up with myself (partially based off of Dungeons and Dragons alignments of lawfulness and goodness), so I don't know how useful it will be for you, but you can read about it and use it too if it interests you: [link]

Thanks so much! D&D alignments can be useful, but sometimes they're too generalized when I'm trying to really get into my characters' heads. Your archetype names are really good for conveying that. ^.^

Are you still unsure about some of the archetypes/icons you have listed? because they're giving me ideas...

Yeah,. I'd still like suggestions for good archetypes if you can think of them! XD
