You’re probably wondering, “How on earth do I draw a character that’s both a nun and a killer?” Well, don’t worry! In this post we’ll show you how to create an awesome character using just two keywords. 

Choose two keywords.

You build a good character on opposites and similarities. So choose two words that relate to each other. A great example would be something like “bitter” and “sweet.” Bitter is definitely the opposite of sweet, but they’re related in that they both taste bad—one has a bitter aftertaste while the other is distinctly sweet. But what about things like “kind” and “cruel”? These are both adjectives that describe how a person behaves towards others. But one is positive while another might be negative (depending on your perspective). They’re not related at all! That’s why it’s important for you to select at least two keywords with some sort of connection between them: either positive or negative, any relationship at all will help create an interesting character.

Example of a character designed from two keywords.

There are several ways to approach designing a character from two keywords. In the example below, we took two words that were opposite in nature.  Them we thought about how we could create a character based on them. We looked for ways these conflicting ideas could be used as tools within the story we are telling.  Finally we found a way to make all of these elements work together.

The result is a short, fast-talking character who is also long-winded and lazy. This type of person would likely not be able to move quickly due to his weight.  But he compensates by talking at high speeds (and possibly even with poor grammar) so he can get everyone’s attention before they leave him behind!

This kind of character works well because it gives audience members two different ways into the story: one through their own physical comfort level (do they want to sit next to someone who might talk too much?) or another through their own ability level (are they interested in hearing more details?).

You might have already noticed that fast characters are usually short. You can make a fast character by drawing them with a small head and body, but with long legs and arms. 

Any of these characters can be drawn in diverse ways or used with different stories. 

You can draw it using different lines and in different styles. You can also use any medium you want, such as pencils, pens, or markers.

The most important thing to remember when drawing a character is to have fun! If you enjoy what you’re doing, then the rest will come naturally.

Here are some tips that might help:

  • Draw freely – don’t worry about being perfect! There’s no right way to do this step; it’s all about experimentation and finding what works best for you.
  • Be creative! Get inspired by things around you like fashion magazines or photos from Google images (just make sure they’re not copyrighted).


This is a fun way to create characters, but it’s not the only way. There are plenty of other ways to get inspired when drawing a new character. For example, you could start with an emotion like happiness or sadness. You could also think about who your character should be based on their personality traits—someone who loves food may have big ears for eating more than talking! The possibilities are endless when it comes to designing characters from scratch and making them one-of-a-kind. The most important thing is having fun while doing so!
