The Assassin Without a Name character profile is now live on my Patreon for all to read.
What is this character profile you speak of?
About what it sounds like. I've always wanted to create profiles of my characters. Not just a brief textual summary, which is something I do anyway behind the scenes when I'm writing a book, but something that contains illustrations, quotes, background information, special skills or abilities, and a favorite quote. You know, a lot like something you'd see in a Dungeons & Dragons book. All of that is achievable with the exception of the one component that really makes something like this pop: the illustrations. Unfortunately, hiring a professional artist for a project like this is cost-prohibitive. This is where AI-generated art shines. With the right license, one can produce as many images each month as your tokens will allow. I use Leonardo.AI for my character illustrations. Like many, I'm continuing to learn the best way to craft prompts to produce the best images possible, but I think they look pretty good for a beginner, especially for someone whose creative skill lies in writing, not graphical art.
This first of many character profiles to come features the Assassin Without a Name
Of all my characters, I had to choose one of my all-time favorites to feature first. That is, of course, the Assassin Without a Name. He's a rich character with multiple layers and a lot of fun to ride along with as he defies death priests, foils the plans of Alchester's social elite, and ultimately proves the hero, even if it's only because he's the best of the worst.
