So... What is YOUR definition of an OC?

I don't see many "Original Characters" anymore due to Generic colors to Generic recolors.

So, what do YOU think about OCs, and if you were to have one, how would it be?

In all honesty, I don't mind most OCs. That being said, some particular OCs do stand out due to poor colors schemes/cutie marks/mane/tail/couldgoonforalongtime.

 

Most of the time, I'm accepting of OCs, unless it's an overused idea. Another problem is there aren't many OC's left due to so many OC's already existing. Seeing clones is annoying, probably worse than some of the poor colors schemes (Mostly if I see that clone 3 or 4 times)

 

Also, Johnny, that's the best OC ever. Cutie marks are overrated, and who thought of a TRANSPARENT PONE?!

The OC Drinking Game.

 

Take a shot for unfitting name (a name that doesn't naturally roll off the tongue)

Take a shot for every word in any title/rank (...of the Royal Guard, ...of the Night Watch, etc)

Take a shot for any glaring colors (no use of pastel colors/the art style)

Take another shot for absolute red

Take another shot for absolute blue

Take another shot for absolute green

Take another shot for absolute purple

Take a shot for unnecessary accessories (Armor, Wing Armor, Watches, etc)

Take a shot for unicorns

Take a shot for pegasuses

Take 2 shots for an abnormal/super-extraordinary backstory (force specializing their canon/offering supernatural powers)

Take 2 shots for Pony Designer (much easier to judge one this way, not that everyone has to be an artist but using a stock pony designer shows a lack of effort)

Take 2 shots for black (most significant use of incorrect color for the world they all live in, though straight up black looks ugly pretty much on any character regardless of universe)
Take 2 shots for hair/tail styles of any Mane 6 (unoriginality)

Take 3 shots for a stolen cutie mark (unoriginality)

Take 5 shots for any relation to a significant character in the universe (Directly involving them in canon, making them seem important)

Finish bottle for alicorns/direct recolor of any significant existing My Little Pony model (really obvious)

 

Not to offend OC makers/owners, just I feel theres a difference between a generic OC and a quality one.

According to Jug's drinking chart..

-Essentially a mule. thats like, negative drinks, right?

- Black Hair + 2 Drinks

* not poking fun at ya Jug. Just being silly and taking an opportunity to doodle*

Really, OC's are fun to me! :D I like doodling out alternate personas and all.  Sure some aren't exactly "original" but not like it bothers me or anything.

I don't have a right to make fun of people's OC's. They may not oftly be balanced and designed well, but at least some heart is put into them. And besides, just look at mine.

The reason he doesn't have a cutie mark is because he's not inherently a pony, he's a cloud that became a pegasus after being struck by a lightning bolt that gave him a soul! :D

 

I gladly await your gawking.

Despite what GreatJug says, I used a pony generator because I can't draw well. Not for a lack of effort.
