Creating a 2D tulpa

    I have 3 soulbonds already, but I was thinking about creating an actual tulpa soon. The easiest way for me to visualize him is in 2D...as an anime drawing. I know lots of people have tulpas that look like anime characters, but how would imposition work? Do I create them the same as I would a realistic looking tulpa?

    [Tri] From what we understand, 3-dimensionality can come later, whether it be in visualization and/or imposition. We were originally 2D before we became 3D over time.

    I'd wager imposition would still be the same. The exact details would differ depending on what method you use, but I imagine you would impose their image like a cutout from an anime instead of building up realistic details and so forth.

    As Tri said, there's also options to add 3D later. In particular, there's no shortage of 3D anime styles, from the stylized to the nearly realistic. Here's a few examples for you to consider...

    Thank you for those. I'm still working on forcing the personality and have decided to just keep him formless for now. One of my old thoughtforms who I haven't worked with appeared in a dream to me and I don't know whether I should resume making him or just continue with my current one, so I have been a bit perplexed.

    I'm thinking I will try imposing them as per the examples and then maybe build up to a more realistic form in the future.

    This is slightly belated, but might I recommend asking him if you come across him again? It may be that he is all right as is and willing to wait in the wings for now.

    In the meantime, I would say keep working with who you currently are. :)
