CDW:AUT 2017 - Character Sheets I - Description

Prompt - You are tasked with writing a character description, straight forward, right? However, this description should follow the rules as outlined within the Character Sheet Guidelines. That is to say you are expected to paint a distinctive picture of your character using words. Do not be afraid to include things like physique and skin tone, distinctive marks and tattoos, scars and facial features. You should also make sure it hits other critical information: hair color and cut, eye color and shape, and general attire. Keep in mind while doing so, however, you should avoid bullet points, effects of your appearance on others, and even behavioural patterns. This is all about how your character looks, and describing them best to create the intended image in the mind of your reader, as the narrator.

If you already have a description in your character sheet, this is a good opportunity to rework it and create a stronger description, with more flavour to fit better the character concept you may have completed in other parts of the CDW competitions.The following is the CS Guide: and is wonderful resource.
