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.

Your OCs are nothing short of amazing and anyonethinks otherwise is either hateful or just jealous

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
