Dale's Free Character Designs

POSTED: Wed Apr 11, 2018 10:51 am

This thread started when I found some lineart on one of the free image sites I found on the Internet. It was public domain, so I decided to color it, and then thought I'd put it here. I then did this with other art I colored in, and you're free to claim these designs to use for your characters. You'll get a full size and resized reference sheet with a white background, and if you want, you can also get a transparent PNG, a resized PNG (to fit in posts or possibly as an avatar), and a PNG mugshot. I can also provide the hex codes each design's color palette uses.

These designs may be used for PCs or NPCs. You can post the claim of a design here, or send me a PM through the forum's messaging system. New players are free to claim designs as well, and can post in this thread if you haven't been approved for the forum. If you want, you can edit the design as much as you want, once it's yours. You can claim more than one, and if you don't end up using a design, that's fine. I also give my take on what inspired each of the designs, but this shouldn't be a hard rule. These designs are meant for you to play with!

Here are the designs currently available:

I rather like this new design I came up with. It's a blue-and-tan merle, and I think the build could suggest a collie- or retriever-type mutt. As always, if you want to claim this design for yourself, feel free.

So Inferni's one of the largest and most history-laden packs on 'Souls, right? That inspired me to make a design for a coywolf or a coywolf-dog hybrid. Then again, it could always be a really scraggly mutt that happens to pass for a coyote. Your character, your call!

Oh man yeah these are cool. If no one else snatches up that coyote I'm all about it for a future NPC. :0

I'll give it a week or two, and if no one immediately comes and asks for it, it's all yours!

Now, this design has to be one of my favorites so far. I can't get over how well this brown brindle goes with the black face marking and the setter-type coat and build. Unfortunately, there were issues with the lineart coming out jagged in the full size image, and I couldn't figure out why it was doing that.

EDIT: The setter-type design was claimed by Rina on the 16th of April, 2018!

Oh man, all of these are lovely! Especially that blue and tan merle, hot damn ;O

...Likewise, if no one claims that beauty anytime soon, she would make a lovely design for an NPC I've been planning!

If no one comes up in the next one to two weeks, she's yours.

This next design is for a piebald tricolored collie-like canine, with ticking present in the white parts. I thought this was a bit plain for the colors I picked, so to spice it up, I gave the character a nose ring. This should be pretty easy to edit out if you don't like the piercing, or want to change it.

I figured out what was causing the jagged edges. I'm going to have to go back and fix that setter-type up so the lines are antialiased. In the meantime, I have here what I think is my newest favorite design so far. The color suggests wolf heritage, but the build suggests strong dog bloodlines, so a low-content wolfdog? I don't know, the world's your oyster!

Edit: I've grown fond of this design. I think I'll claim it for myself.
