Today we're going to build on the Skeleton from Heat #6.
This is not a judged event, but everyone who comments about it will be entered into the prize drawing.
You already know your new character's age, gender, social roles, and mannerisms. Today, your job is to use that information to build a physical description of the character. Think closely about how these factors might influence physical characteristics. Your aim is not to list the merely visual, but to understand how a confluence of factors might allow you to create a visually coherent character. For example, does your 16-year-old fry cook have bad skin? Burn marks on his hands? A slight paunch from all the fries he sneaks? Or does your 16-year-old fry cook have a serious light to his brown eyes and a bankbook perpetually tucked into his back pocket?
You can take the same set of facts and slant them toward very different descriptions. Your goal is to find a description that is meaningful.
