Character Mood Boards

Mood boards are a great way to help imagine a character you’ve created. It can either be before you start writing for them or after you’ve started but need a little more inspiration.

A character mood board is a visual presentation or collage consisting of images and/or text in any configuration that associate with your chosen character. It’s like creating a board on Pinterest but for a character.

There are a number of free apps you can use to create them, or perhaps Photoshop if you have it, and you can just scour Google or Pinterest for the images you wish to use. Or you could even draw/create for own images to add.

Feel free to your Character Mood Boards below, @RPers!

I’ve never really understood the point of these :thinking: Are they to help you get a sense of the charcter’s… aura, among other things? Like what’s their purpose, just for inspiration?

Oooh those are cool. I really like Ervic’s and Peckerhead’s. They each seem monochrome, mostly—is that the colour you associate with each character?

Yeah, it’s to help get a feel for the character visually to go alongside the write up you do in their profile. Some find that a visual representation can help with their writing.

HEHEHE. Me too.

Perhap a little, but it was also trying to make it look right to my eye.

I have literally never made a moodboard for anything ever. Let alone for a character, but I have the sudden urge to want to do it. Just to see what it would be like. :joy:

Ah, okay, for the visual learners then. I might try one though, seems kinda cool.
Then what would it be used for outside of writing? I’ve seen people ask if they wanted to be made a mood board… like is that just for entertainment or just to see what the other person thinks you are represented by?

Find an app or site to make one on, choose a character, then begin…


YAY! Can’t wait to see them.

Yeah, pretty much. … Cool stuff.

Uh… I guess that’s just a personal choice thing and what they want out of it.

HEHEHE. Cool.

Why can’t I see the image?
