Alright things you should probably be interested in if you want to do this: Horror, Fantasy, Paranoia, Insanity and those old school multiple forms of either heroes or villains and/or character progression ideas.

I have a basic idea of a character as well as what I'd want to eventually become based on story arc.  Possibly more characters depending on your interest.  I'd also be interested for story input if the whole thing tickles your fancy.  I just want to do something creative in my life for once in the longest time.

Message me show me some examples of your art and I'll show you some examples of my writing pieces and character profiles.  If it clicks we'll go from there.
I'm working on a low fantasy Sorcerer like character, a somewhat humorous, yet also horror driven sort that is not in control of his magical abilities.  I have a basic idea of his build and face, but I'm getting stuck on clothes options.  I'd like to ask an artist who's good at these things to give me advice on some good ideas for costume.  Possibly built out of medieval periodish clothing.

Character profile available on request.
And I'll sit in my room,

Pretend it's not the end of days,

But I've lost all my faith,

with no gods to whom I can pray,

because in the end,

it's Mankind's own way,

Marching down to extinction,

at the end of the day,

And here we'll sing,

in the ruins of it all,

Glad at least for the company,

during the final curtain call,

As long as we have each other's little community,

I'm sure we'll find some lasting peace,

wait and see.

And here we'll sit,

spiraling down to the ground,

smiling at each other,

feeling in no way profound,

dark may creep into our eyes in the end,

but death is better when your with a friend.
Songs in the Key of Terra
I've been dreaming odd dreams lately where songs and sad, but also joyous times occur.
Loading...
Whether as if like wind through stars I drift alight,
sorrow bereft and hollow ere' 'tis night,
without somber plod or cursed muttered,
without foul and coarse verse I uttered,
where once my hand swung dark and true,
I have been left reborn anew,
With a mind clearer hence of this haze,
life has been rebuilt and with it a new maze,
a twisting corridor endless, heedless,
set within my mind bearing fruit sadly seedless.
Without Demons
After I was put on Anti-Anxiety-Antiy-Depression meds for a good while I could not craft the written word.  Indeed I felt utterly bereft of creativity.  This was the first poem that came to mind soem months after when I once again re-awoke to find the new man before me.
Loading...
Now I'm sure I'll annoy people but i need to refine my concepts, if not for real life (because I'm no leader by heart and little more than an ideas man) then maybe I could write a book or essay on the subject.  .

I'm trying to hammer out what religion is truly about, a guide book to humanity and ethics, community, social inclusion, ritual and ceremony for focusing the mind and at one point, one of the last bastions for learning in a brutal world (after it decimated certain point by it).  To me religion is little more than a kind of psychological profile of a culture, hence its mutability in transition between forms.

My reasoning for why it's a guide post to humanity is it often has stories and allegories to the human condition via symbolism and imagery.  From the studies I have done symbolism is intensely powerful to the subconscious mind because it is how it functions over the conscious mind.  Anyway here it goes

Consider a "religion" based on man, its sanctity and responsibilities in the universe and and a rational guide post to both how to learn, how to be human and how we may achieve focus, community and greater forging of the will, spirit and direction of our species.


But then again I envision a Monastic setting where people go to shut out the world for a time, to focus and learn and self improve, like a combination of western and eastern monasticism with all the fluff thrown away so there is only Mankind, the world, the cosmos and our place within.  Now imagine those people now capable of going out and articulating those thoughts unto their fellow man and spreading the glory of who we are as a creature as well as our perceived destiny of exploring the cosmos.  Many people believe our technology is outpacing our humanity.  I aim to fix that and have our humanity outstrip our technology.

Well I love metal, the smell of it I mean, and gunpowder. I'm a self styled pirate of the modern age and am something of a very bad writer. When not spending time reading or writing, I am practicing with my cutlass and/or longsword (I'm also a M.A.R.E fanatic).

Might I suggest you check out a little known series called Twilight? 

I feel like the emotional depth of the protagonist, A Ms Bella Swan, would be appealing to you!

Ah.  Lol.  I prefer someone of a more . . . pragmatic and calculating bent.  I literally devoured this omnibus in less than a month (then again I can literally read a Terry Pratchett novel, a bit off topic, in two or three days) www.amazon.com/Eisenhorn-Warha….
