Character Building

It's not enough to create a character with outward charm and charisma. In order for the character to be believable by your audience, you must consider the character's life and background, habits, likes and dislikes. Factors such as age, health and clothing (usually governed by trade or occupation of character) should have already been considered when initially designing the character.

What's your character's background, likes and dislikes?

In the case of Jenny, she's a little girl with ringlets. Wears a pretty dress, socks and Mary Jane style shoes. She may remind the viewer of Shirley Temple, but with more of an attitude. As children do, Jenny loves to play. She often uses her imagination when she dances. At this point, Jenny likes most food, loves animals, loves to dance and pretend.
