Some times, most people find artwork online they feel would suit a character in the RP forums for something they want to join. Pretty much everyone in that forum does it. Basically all his abilities, story, name, weaponry that I made for Storm is by me. Just not the art I'm currently using as a reference basically.
That's basically how all my characters start until I get around to properly drawing art for them. Unless they were just OC's tailored for the particular rp. It depnds on the situation really. ╭♥
I think you kinda misunderstand. The only thing I did create entirely new for Storm were his weapons. Everything but his actual face claim picture was created by me. I'd have to look up the artist who created the artwork I found. ╭♥
I was joining a RWBY RP with a friend and the position on a team got filled before my profile got looked at by the leader of the RP. They said I can still join if I just rename the character but it took so long to just create the guy that it would just not feel the same to rename him. Plus I wanted to the leader position on the team so most likely I won't event continue with trying to apply... ╭♥
