Coco deh Flyin Student by KicsterAsh Coco deh Flyin Student by KicsterAsh
I forgot I had scanned this a while back.

I want people to know that I'm not all about fanart. A lot of people out there think that I am, and because of their pushy comments I get even more uncomfortable about posting my own works. I'm relatively shy when it comes to showing my OCs, mostly because I got bullied through school about issues such as these. I've been insecure with my original art for years. When people pressure me to post more OCs, I get defensive. It's something I'm trying to break, but it's not easy. Especially when artists I don't know criticize me for it.

I'm doing it at my own rate. And Coco is a good way to start. He liked to leap in high school, sometimes over everyone's heads. His excitement intimidated his bros sometimes.

That thar is Mr. Stork. Another one of my OCs since I was 16. I gave him swords in a story back in highschool.... ages before KFP came out. And the golden retriever in the back is Brutus "Brue" Retriever, Coco's best friend.

Might color. Not too sure anymore.

There's nothing to be ashamed about with OC's--heck, that's what imagination is for, isn't it? Giving life to ideas and characters and stories that are none other than your own? Anyone who disagrees with that or criticizes creative character development is just a stick in the mud. Your characters and you are amazing, and you should never be afraid to share the gift of creativity God has given you. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. :hug:

I'd definitely love to see more of YOUR OCs and original wrks for a change sometimes, because as much as I love your fanart, your own work is just as important, possibly even more as you develop as an artist :iconiloveitmoreplz:

Cool picture with Coco! :D If I'm looking correctly, Spike and Satelite are both at the bottom, right? :D

I don't blame you for getting defensive when it comes to your OC's. I still can't see how anyone would make fun of your OC's and artwork though, they look so cool.

Just how I felt a few days ago. Some people watch me for my fanart of PnF.
If I posted orginal art no one would even favourite them, despite the fact that it only takes them a second.
You're actually lucky you have friends and fans who support you here in dA, counting me. Mine are either inactive, deactivated or just plain forgot about me. Nothing ever seems the same.

I like your OC's, they look rather nice to me. ^^

And I'm not really good with comforting, I never was. . v_v
But I really hope that you feel better now, considering that this was 16 and a half hours ago. :aww::tighthug:

Aw, thank you dear:hug::hug:
As for people faving your OCs, it'll happen over time. The first few years I was on dA, my original art never got faved. Only my Sonic the Hedgehog art. If you keep drawing and practicing, you'll eventually win some fans over who love your OCs as much as your fanart.:heart:

You're welcome! :tighthug:
I will wait for that day.
Yeah, I saw your Sonic art from before and thought they were cute. It was a surprise, though, that no one faved nor commented on them. They're so awesome! <3 (I think I gotta fave and/or comment some o' them. Beware, I might spam your inbox. :giggle:)
I don't only need to practice, but buy myself a tablet, too! I mean, you make for your stories such cool logos and stuff, it's just amazing! I would never make it with a mouse.
And I know what'cha mean. ^^ Francis really won a place in my heart. <3

I love love LOVE Coco's expression :iconmonkeyloveplz: All of your OC's are cute and creatively fun, and if they were plushes I'd buy 'em all! :heart: Aww but the people who gave you grief over such things in school were nothing short of immature and blatantly ignorant of your genius. I wouldn't be surprised if they were even jealous! Still, no matter what the case, they had no right to treat you that way - and no one here on dA has that right, either. That's something I just don't understand about people... However, look at you now my friend! Even if you still feel some discomfort about your personal works, look at how far you've come since then! I've been through your entire gallery over the months I've been on dA, and wow!!! You have such a mass of unique, colorful, beautiful works, and even your fanart has a wonderful touch of your personal style that makes it your own. You've been adding to them, improving with every piece, and showing your diverse range of talent along the way. Not many artists here have accomplished such a feat :heart: And I know you'll only continue to become better and gain more confidence that your original art is worth more than what can be said :iconplatyglompplz:

Just keep doing what you're doing, knowing that like Coco here, you are a leap above the others :hug:

Awww Ash, I personally love your original characters, and I would love to see more of them... but I also understand your insecurity. I've got my own characters too for a long time (which coincidentally are similar to the KICS) but I still never showed them on dA... I'm afraid people could ruin what I've had since I was a kid. But you are a way better artist than me, I'm sure you can get your characters to be very popular and loved ^^

ahem, about the pic, I have to laugh at Coco's expression xDD ..crazy lemur. :giggle: poor boys, they're all "omg what is he doing", except for Brue of course xDD

Coco reminds me a lot of my friend Jill, monkeying around everywhere :heart:

Don't be afraid to show your ideas, lots of people love them. For those who push you down, I know you've probably heard this before and sick of it but just try to ignore them. Its hard, but just remember they are people who support you.

GO COCO! :3

You know what, those people who put you down are what I'd like to call (sometimes in very foul words), jerks. I've been what you've been through (well, i was the weird one and I got picked on for it....that and I'm younger then you) and I know how much it hurts to be put down. It's not fun. You just gotta hold your head up high and show the world that they CAN'T bring you down. They CAN'T squash your inner flame. You are perfect the way you are. :heart:

I hope that helps ^^

Aww that's so cute and funny! I wish one of my classes had a flying student. ;P

And don't worry about what other people say about your OCs, they are very unique and creative. I'm sure you'll surpass that uncomfortable feeling. :3 even I feel that way but I'm starting to post up my OCs little by little, so you are not alone.

Besides that, amazing job on the concepts on every one of the characters and expressions! :heart:

I like your original art over any of the fan art you do.
You give it your own complete style/look and that gives it character that the fan art just cant have.
When you post art based on your own imagination it shows more of who you are and of how epicly skilled you actually are.

I think any insecurity can be overcome....
Especially when your posting wonderful work like this :)
