Making Your Own Character (RPG maker VX: Custom Character Generator)
Let’s now look at the wide assortment of features available to customize your character.
If you look on the upper left of the corner, you’ll see the default character (bald and without any clothes!) As you add various features, you’ll see him/her change depending on the options you’ve selected.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to click right underneath that character when you’re done with your character in order to download it (it says “character download). I’ve identified the button as shown in the picture below.
