How many people on /co/ actually have characters they've created and drawn? I don't mean "OCs" but actual original characters. Post your own and critique others'.

I have 2 for you
Name: Alyson
Age: 15
Ideal medium: animated series
Personality: Brash, tomboyish, energetic, a trouble maker but not really "rebellious"
Character strengths: Complete disdain for drama or bullshit and distances herself fully from those things. Despite her abrasiveness, she is fiercely loyal to anyone she feels has truly earned her respect.
Character Flaws: Complete lack of ambitions or goals in life. A drifter. Her avoidance of conflict and drama can come of as being self centered as she largely doesn't care about things she sees as "not her problem." She also avoids her own problems and complicated home life with an unhealthy escapism she finds in video games and fantasy.
Story: She and her best friend are two gamers with overactive imaginations who get into misadventures both in the games they play and in their everyday school lives. Some episodes are completely within a video game, some completely in reality, most some level of mixture between both.

What do you mean by that?
>>
>>78015330
I believe he means you actually have plans for these characters.
Like, as opposed to a Sonic OC, a character derived from another existing medium, it's a character you created for some purpose.
>>
>>78015330
I just meant no "sonic OC" style character. Just completely original ideas and not characters based on other series.

OP here with my 2nd character from a different series
Name:Gwendolyn
Age:10~12 depending on point in story
Ideal medium: animated series
Personality: innocent and fun loving, energetic and adventurous. Wants everyone to be happy.
Character strengths: Very kind. Because the series is largely about her growth as a character, her strength shows more in the later episodes with her being very mature and responsible for her age.
Character Flaws: Early on in the show she is very innocent and naive. While she is usually well mannered and considerate of the larger perspective, sometimes she does get frustrated when she doesn't get her way.
Story: Kind of the cross between the disney princess genre, the magical girl genre, and lord of the rings. Kingdom of paradise proves to be less and less of a paradise as the protagonist is groomed into her role as the next in line for the throne.

Side note. This series includes a group of villains who are a group of light magic wielding crusaders who ruthlessly and indiscriminately destroy the dark magic users. (although I could never design on a color scheme for them)
>>
>>78015330
I guess actual characters you feel attached to and want to do something with.

Mental Rental is a series I've been working on for maybe 8 years now. Soon I want to finally begin it as a webcomic like homestuck or something

For what it's worth, I like the middle left, white on blue makes sense.

Armor looks fine, but you don't need to match the shield to the rest, it can share elements of the design but the copy/paste effect or illusion whatever you want to call it, throws off the image balance.

I had the idea of a digital being named Hugh Crypto being the main villain who resides in a realm called the Datamind.

Something draws my eye to the largest one. I like the icy blue, if in action it glowed that'd be rad.

This guy is a baddie for a webcomics, but not a major one. Monster of the week type deal and all. His name is Frosty, not because of ice powers(he's a cigarette monster) but because he's an iceman and he's literally a Frosty brand cigarette. These are multiple designs based on the same idea for his face.

All these designs seem to lack a color scheme. You can put colors on a character but if they dont look good together it ends up looking like you used the default pallets on MSP
