About the Character Creator

The Character Creator aims to provide a fun and easy way to help you find a look for your characters. Just like the japanese kisekae (electronic paper dolls), you pick and choose items from a list to ornate your character with. It is free to use and will always remain free to use. For storytellers looking for spritesheets of their characters, we offer those services on demand.

The website was launched on January 11th 2014 with only basic functionality. Since then, new features and content have been added with every update, see details on our facebook page.

If you have any questions or comments, or if you want to get involved, either as a programmer or an artist, email your request.
