This is the Ghost Master, the character from whom I took my name. I'm trying to learn to draw so I can illustrate my stories. Anyway, his is coming up here in a few, and I can't figure out how he should look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A bed sheet... (hero danny flashback). :lol:
The folds of the sheet would be off. The best advice I can give you is to take and actual bedsheet and do that to yourself. It helps to actually see folds in that, and as a stand point of expereance, it could help you understand you character a bit more. I've done this a bunch of times.
There is bound to be a opening in the sheet where you can see the body beanthe it, and the edges of the blanket would be tapered. Plus, it also deepends on the what size the sheet is, that can make a world of difference it length.
Also, what part of the sheet is he useing for a hood. I suppose it will be on the edge somewhere, but a corner would give it the looke you did in you picture. If you're using the middle if the edge, then the edges of the blanet would have to be tapered and you would see the body more.
Your folds so far are nice and i would epect to see them. The folds of the hood however could use some work.

No, just how the folds and stuph would look.
Thanks, Pen. *grins at mental image* The shot of Danny from Fright Knight was actually the inspiration for Ghost Master. Where he's got that sheet around him, trying to look scary and no one cares.
Hm...so if I want it to stay more or less closed around him, I'm going to need to come up with a clasp, yes? *thinks* A belt wouldn't work with that style, would it?

Okay, I got yay. That's going to be a difficult look to pull off, you're not going to be able to have the sheet all closed up around him like you do in the picture.
Well, if you're going with a grab bag type thing here then by all means go for it. I'm just saying, it would be difficult to pull the belt thing off unless he was being pratiacially stagled by it. You could always go with a animal collar, the might work better.
B) suddenly that little journal entry of yours in making much more since.

Okay, better? At all?

It's begining too.
The opening in the sheet give it a much more realistic look anyway.

I couldnt really describe folds and such with words, so I hope this picture helps you somewhat ^^;
