1.31 Character Appearance

What do your characters look like? Eye and hair color? Skin tone? Birthmarks? Nose size? Extra toe? Body piercings? Tattoos? How would you describe this character’s body type if you were comparing to different fruits and vegetables? How does the character dress? What about the way the character makes hand gestures? As the writer, the most important thing you can do when describing your characters physical appearance is to give just enough information so your reader has an image of what this person (or blobby thing from another time and dimension) looks like.
