Pull from your surroundings or your personal life. I usually tend to create characters on the spur of the moment because i see a costume or a clothing piece that i really want to wear or to build upon.
Ex. I did a mercenary character at convention this year for the simple fact that i really wanted to incorporate a barbed wire top, so i built on that
I created my main character nip, for the simple fact that im a dancer and can contort myself into all kinds of weird angles and i knew it would look good
Pull from something you love, or something that inspires you, pull from pictures is always a good suggestion, i like to search all over the internet and check out twisted art that inspires me.
Dont pull as much from movies, you want to make your own character, not a knockoff
Hope this was helpfull, if you are in need of more assisstance please feel free to contact me i love helping build and design characters!
