It's selfish, petty and childish. It's just self-fulfilling garbage, and no amount of explanation can rectify it. Oc's don't belong in the proper universe, and putting them with actual characters is just wrong.

While I do agree with you, that doesn't stop you from doing something with other OCs.
Either way, it's up to you, mate.

But it's just a picture, a fantasy. It's all not real anyway... why constrain oneself arbitrarily? Because other people don't like it? Nuts to that.

It's a moral thing, but I would also consider it artistic choice. If everyone had nice looking OC's, maybe I wouldn't mind. But I get so many requests for shitty alicorn/overpowered/overtly detailed/etc etc OC's that just look terrible to be with show characters. It's wrong. It's just wrong. Even thinking about it makes me cringe a bit. I don't want to draw these incredibly badly made characters with characters that I actually do like.

Well, I meant in terms of you drawing it yourself.

/mlp/'s OC general is always good for a laugh. I wish more people made gryphon or dragon or Diamond Dog characters...

I feel An actual self insert is far worse. Going so low that you have to put yourself into these characters world? An artist should never have to do that. My ponysona I wouldn't even consider an 'original character' its just an image, a picture, he has no unique story or skills or anything. It's just supposed to be me in pony form, down to the pale skin, red hair and broken glasses.

Oh, please. After working for original projects, that's all making characters is, is writing from people you know or pieces of yourself to bring things to life.

This canon/fanon thing has got to stop, everything "canon" was from someone's head at one point and the creators aren't larger-than-life idols, they're just people just like you or me making stuff and having fun with it. Poke fun at badly-designed characters but don't insinuate one should never do that at all. Every decade in the comics industry, that's what happens when new writers or artists are brought into the team.

That just seems like an excuse though. We aren't apart of a development team, we aren't making new characters for new storylines or relationships, we aren't being paid by companies to create something for the publisher or the marketer, people are just making characters because they want to be in the universe. I don't like to think that way, it again, seems like a very childish mindset, and not the good kind.

I know a lot of people like to insert themselves into their favorite worlds, I used to be like that, but it doesn't create anything new, anything 'real'. I like the way I work, the rules I have laid out aren't just for other people, they are for me to follow. And whats the point of rules if you just break them. I am not entitled to anything, its my art, but its not my concept (cept for the sex part I guess).

That's the only reason creators make characters is because they want to be in their universe!


Maybe you are not a part of any independent development teams but I'm a part of two or three for games, shorts, or on-call as a secondary animator and I often deal with new IPs. I had a rather... hmm... trying experience working for Weebl and his team of 23 of so animators, that was a lesson in many things.

As for the rest, Hasbro is making Equestria Girls and Twilight an alicorn and we already know that wasn't part of the G4 creator's vision: (see- http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/492/5... ) and it all amounts to the same thing when you have multiple people working on something. Who do you think is given jobs? It's often from a pool of people who may already be fans or be intensely interested on something because they give it the most effort.

But that's not the point I'm making. I would rather create my own universe and my own characters then self-insert them into an already created world. If I happen to one day be apart of a paying job to put characters into an already established universe, thats fine, it would be my job and I would fucking love it because I hope that the way I work would be a good thing for it.

This is not a job, this is just a hobby. Two very different things. And fans aren't always the best choice to choose from a pool of people. One in particular comes to mind, where a fan became a major contribution to an established IP that I really liked, and in my opinion destroyed it forever. It's what change my mindset from what you believe in to what I believe in. 2 years ago I would have completely agreed with you, but that's not the way everything should work.

Concerning the show itself, Lauren said it herself the moment she dropped out of the show she no longer had any input into what happened, and the current show runners are the ones running it. She said that 2 years ago, and has been saying it ever since. She may have something cool that was originally planned, and I would love to hear it, but what's happening now is what's happening.

No no not like that, I'm saying he doesn't exist. It's just a picture.

I suggested to do your pony because it's your own creation. So, it's really you celebrating in the pic because it's your account that got 1000 watches.
