Is that directed at me?  Because i did give credit for one of the images, & would for the others if i knew, or had a way to find out....

((note that i don't find all the images i post on my own, i use a computer that i share with my parents & siblings, who also find images online))

If you don't know you shouldn't use it. Things you find on Google are not free to use just because they are on Google or whatever search engine you use. These engines generally don't have a public domain filter and will show you an image regardless of whether or not the artist is ok with people using their work. The fact that your siblings find some of the images does not change this ether.

If you don't know or don't care who drew it, don't repost it. It's really simple in the world of the internets. It takes what, 3 seconds to find the artist of a piece & ask for permission or check their rules? so any excuses regarding it 'taking too much time' or 'well I already had it in my files anyway so'  just come over as incredibly contemptible- it makes you look like you don't want to bother or even care about fairness in the first place.

 

(also the replies went haywire, y'all know who I'm replying to though)

Depends on what your definition of an argument is. I don't think anyone's trying to be overly harsh. I know I'm not. I'm just saying that some of these artists might be annoyed with you if they found out you were using their art without their permission. They couldn't take legal action or anything because it is fan art but there is a good chance that if they knew they would be upset. I just want you to know that.

Thank you for saying your not trying to be harsh.  I felt that you kind of were, both you & Varku, when i just made a simple mistake, & all i wanted was some nice replies on some stuff i felt insecure about.  It makes me feel a little better to know thats not how you were trying to come across as.  To me, it didn't come across that you were trying to make that point.  I know that's a possibility, & if someone was mad, then i would gladly apoligize & remove/give credit at request.  I never aim to hurt people's feelings, or steal art, if thats what i was doing ((Which i'm sure i wasn't)).  If i came across that way, i'm sorry.

Very few people who steal art are trying to steal art (other than trolls). It's usually just a mistake and they don't realize how a particular action makes artists feel. A lot of people end up doing it before they realize it is wrong too. If someone is telling you something you don't want to hear try not to automatically take it personally because theres a good chance the person is not trying to be mean. It's difficult to get one's tone across through words alone and words is all the forum gives us.

Technically speaking, it's not that big of a deal, from a certain point of view. It's not as if the art was claimed to be theirs, which is, in fact, art theft. If someone claims to have made a piece of art that is not theirs, that is considered plagiarism. Crediting an artist for something, even if they don't know the name of said artist, is giving that artist the respect they deserve. Using it and giving credit is one thing- claiming to have done the art is a whole other matter entirely. 

 

If someone had claimed to have done a piece of art that isn't theirs, that is a big deal. If someone gives credit, even without having the name of the artist, is still recognizing them for the work they have done. Though it's not advisable for extensive use, if the character is underdeveloped and the owner of the OC doesn't have access to any way to distinguish the character, it's not wrong for them to use something they found. Google Search is open to the whole world.

Anyways, just thought I'd say that.

Meet Stormy Eyes, otherwise known as Stormy. As a child, she washed ashore Berk in a basket, and was taken under the wing of the Jorgenson Clan. It quickly became obvious that Stormy has pure Berserker tendencies, and most often, they're rather uncontrollable. Really, she means no harm- but running around the school with an axe, especially early in the morning, tends to have an effect on certain students around the school.

When she first came to the School, after encouragement from her clan, Stormy was viewed as dangerous and untrustworthy. She was only a teenager at the time, but she worked hard to make it obvious that she was much different than her bloodthirsty ancestors- though she's more closely related to the Berserkers than she would like to know.

Stormy's first dragon was a Skrill called Hurricane- she raised him from hatching, and the two have been best friends ever since. You might say the dragon and rider grew up together, and as Stormy won the trust of her fellow classmates and dragon riders, she also became well known for her impressive bond with the sometimes unstable dragon. Life was a challenge for a young dragon trainer and a Skrill, especially as a first dragon, but their equally hyperactive personalities soon forged a bond between them, which is something not seen often between a Skrill and a rider.

Now, at the age of 20, Stormy has grown a reputation as one of the most bombproof students in the School, heading up her own strike team called the Valkyrie Riders, and defending her "home" for the past 8 years. In the course of those 8 years, however, Stormy made a shocking discovery, that forced her to keep a deadly secret for a long, long time.

But she kept that hidden for many years, and the only one she ever told was one of the newest teachers to the School, and later, one of her partners in "crime": Eret son of Eret, former servant of Drago Bludvist. But that's another story....

Dear writers: You know when your characters are having a good day, and then you crash their party with an awful plot twist and its SO MUCH FUN? Yeah, the feeling is kind of like this:

 Ruff and Tuff (Ruffnut

 

 

Squiid's Characters

Well, here's where I put all my RP and non-RP cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.

Eternally under construction, probably, since I procrastinate :D

 

Skari

A treasure hunter, a scoundrel, and a grave-robber; can you get much more untrustworthy than that? Well, Skari sure can. Unreliable and shifty, Skari uses his quick wit and charming personality to wriggle his way out of the toughest spots. He has a particular liking for shiny objects and is considered a thief-for-hire, occasionally, risking life and limb (though he's not overly fond of that). Once acquainted with him, you either realize right away he's not to be trusted- or, usually, you realize that much too late. On rare occasions, though, you can break open his heart of stone and find a soul of gold inside...well, I could be speaking literally or figuratively.

 

Lenora

You won't hear much about Nellie on these forums, since I never RP with her, but in the rare case I say something about her, it's probably her superb shooting skills. Mildly terrifying, but if you're on her side, it's quite useful. She's got a lively personality, loyal to a fault and completely, blatantly honest. Though I mentioned her loyalty, it's true she's loyal to one person- her boss, of whom she self-appointed herself his personal bodyguard. Needless to say, he doesn't really mind. Especially since he sort of needs one.

 

Finn

Ah, Finn. Used primly in magic/cyborg/or-anything-like-that RPs, Finn is an interesting case. With the ability to shapeshift into a dolphin at will, you might say his name is apt...ha! Get it? Finn? Okay, I'll leave now. Anyways, he also has a metal arm, of which he's modified to do various things with. And yes, when he shapeshifts into a dolphin, he has a metal fin. It's rather funny. He's a huge sweetheart, which isn't saying anything for his rather bad past, and he likes long swims in the ocean in his free time...

 

Iduna 

Who said the Grimborn boys didn't have any family? (Well, no one, exactly.) I can't really say much about Iduna without giving a bunch of Race to the Edge spoilers, but she's observant, gentle, and quiet; and, honestly, no one exactly knows how she ended up marrying Viggo Grimborn and keeping a close eye on all his operations Beyond the Archipelago. She seriously can be scary if she wants to. Beware.

 

More coming soon! Whee! -dances away from all my impending tasks-

 

 

And here is the best Hiccup gif I have ever found. Enjoy.

oh Hiccup sweetie what are you doing with your face??

A tribute to the fun personality-based choices you can make in Star Wars: the Old Republic.

I have two Sith Lord characters. One of them is sophisticated, collected, a devoted servant of the Sith Empire, and a really all around Viggo-style villain. The other is absolutely insane and defected from the Galactic Empire because they wouldn't let him have a pet Nexu. 

Meet Chayaraa Argos and Tavos Xan, the chaos and order of the Sith Empire.

Well, you survived to the end, and now you probably know way too much about me :D The more you know, right? No? Okay. Anyways...

May the Force be with you!

If it helps there's nothing wrong with the characters themselves. I was just a little put off from the way you got your visual representations of them. My favrot is probably the boy with the thunderdrum. Do think of making a fanfic with them would you? I want to know how they ended up together as I asked before.

I think it's worth noting that if someone has a problem with one part of a character that doesn't mean they dislike the character as a whole.

Since you asked, maybe.  I haven't yet, & if i do, it won't be for awhile.  I have three fanfics planned after the Winter Rider, & if he were to appear he'd be in the third or second ((Slim chance for the second though)).  Brightlocks met Rumble after he left the rest of the family as they were leaving Ireland.  She attacked his boat, because she thought he was some barbarian.  He had heard how people could train dragons, so he decided to give it a try.  He was able to show Rumble he meant no harm, then was able to train her.  But it was Rumble who did most of the work, since she actually liked him from the start.  In fact, she's more the one who does the training.

It's a big deal to the artist and I think the artist's opinion matters.

Plus I'm talking about when they don't credit and say "I would have if I could have" which many artists find insulting. Not when they do. Usually it's not even h.ard. If you're looking through the images search of Google and you find a nice picture just click on the picture and half the time there's your artist right there. If you can't at the very least bother to show where you got the image don't use that image. It's that simple.

It not being that big of a deal is subjective. If someone doesn't care doesn't mean no one else should either.

She literally stole characters though? She didn't just take art for face characters, but even took their names and 'butchered' the story the original artist had for them. If that's not blatant theft & disregard for the artist, I don't know what is.

Also 'credit to whomever drew it' is not and will never be respectful- to the contrary- it's everything BUT respectful. Not taking the time to learn the name of your 'supplier' (in that sense) is rude and disrespectful. If you give 'ghost credit', you are NOT giving the artist the recognition they deserve, you're just being disdainful towards them.

 

Theft comes in many forms, but taking characters and claiming them as your own is still theft, whether someone scribbled over the original art or didn't. Scribbling over it is even worse, yes, but they're both guano things to do.

 

"Google Search is open for the whole world" - This just... no. This is something many art thieves tend to say for some reason, but why?Something being on google doesn't mean you can just take it. Never has and never will and I don't know where some people even get this misinformation from. Google is a search engine, not a free stock photo supplier.

I agree with your statement. Art theft isn't excusable, and crediting the artist is important. I never said I was supporting the defacing of other's characters, and using their designs for their own. I was saying, if you have no easy or quick way to distinguish a character, then Google search is an engine many people will go to- most of them unwitting of art theft. After all, Google search is...a search engine. And search engines are used to...search for things. Even I need to be better about this, which is something I will quickly admit to.

 

I will be leaving this thread. I dislike internet drama, but I thought maybe I should attempt and restate my response to the argument that broke out. If the artist is credited, that's well and good. If it isn't, it is a mistake that is not the end of the universe. Disrespectful to the artist? Yes. It is, but it is a mistake that can be remedied quickly. Namely, by choosing to not do it again.

 

Have a good day, both of whom replied <3

I must have misunderstood what you said earlier then. I thought you were implying that it's okay to take omething off Google just like that. My bad!

 

This isn't drama, this is just people calling out art theft. Not everything that isn't positive has to be drama, or an argument as I've seen some people call it. :þ

 

If art is credited it doesn't have to be well and good. Crediting the artist doesn't automatically mean you're allowed to nab someone's artwork. Just taking something and 'giving credit' whereas the artist may not even want someone else to use it like that is still rude. I don't know where 'credit the artist and everything is good!' came from, but it's simply not true.

And yes, it's definitely not the end of the world and it can be remedied quickly, but unfortunately some people will simply keep doing it regardless of the fact that they know they're doing something wrong, rude and disrespectful. Still, if people really want to steal and plagiarise, that's fine, but it doesn't come without a price. The price being shunned and disrespected by online art communities, and those stigmas don't easily go away depending on one's internet footprint.

 

In the end, it's the choice of the artist/thief whether they steal or not, but they shouldn't ever be exempt of critique. Theft should never be free game :þ

Hmm

Hope you don't mind me joining this.

 

My opinion quickly:

"Crediting an artist for something, even if they don't know the name of said artist, is giving that artist the respect they deserve."

"Google Search is open to the whole world."

No and no.

Saying "credit goes to whoever made this" is like giving credit to air. Also, you can easily find pictures from google and it doesn't matter whether or not those are free to use or not.

 

Now the real reason why I joined.

It's really easy and quick to search for the original picture and artist.

Let's use the picture Squid used for Skari, but didn't know who made it, as an example.

 

First right click and choose "search picture (google)".   (Or something like that. I tried to translate but it can be something completely different.)

Next, let's look around a little bit. Oh, it seems like you can find a similar picture on Printest.

(Similar because it does have the picture as a top but it also has a second set of references for some other character. Because both are drawn in the same style it's easy to assume that this is (however you do share in Printest) from the original picture)

Let's see. Ooh, we got lucky. The person has credited the original artist. And the credit goes to "Zanariya on DevianArt".

Now we just search for the user in DevianArt, look around their gallery, and bam.

Here is the original picture.

(http://zanariya.deviantart.com/art/Character-Designs-399160259)

 

This process took... about a minute. And it wasn't so hard. So none of you can't say that you have no way of knowing who the original artist was.

 

Fun fact: 

the captcha for this was: Location avenue

Might I add that even though it's very hit-and-miss, Tineye is also a tool worth using! It sometimes even picks up on edited/traced works too. It doesn't show 'similar' images but tries to search for the image itself, which is pretty neat. If Google's reverse search doesn't do what I want it to do, Tineye usually will.

Welp, here's mine.

As you can see, I am not an artist, I just draw when I'm bored.

 

Regardless, here's what I drew when I was bored yesterday:

 

 

It's my OC, Paz, at different ages. And in case you're wondering, no, the cloak is not supposed to be transparent. Also, the braid's of the two in the middle aren't normally draped over their shoulder, I just wanted to make sure they were seen.

 

Anyhow, the ages shown here are 9 (When HTTYD happened), 13 (When she started at School of Dragons), 15 (Where she is currently and when she got the scar on her eye), and 18 (The design itself is not the final version most likely)

                                                                   Amazing drawing of Topaz Gypsy by Ally Kay the Skilled!

                                                                                 

Backstory:

          When Paz was 3, she and her parents were sailing along with the rest of their tribe to find a new island. When a huge storm capsized the boat in the middle of the night, it killed the majority of the tribe, including her father. The remaining few washed up on the shores of Berk. When they realized they had been blown drastically off course, Stoic offered to let them stay, under the condition that they became members of the tribe of Berk. Shortly afterwards, however, Paz's mother had contracted an unknown illness (pneumonia) and died. Gothi, who had grown fond of the child in that short time, decieded to raise her as an apprentice.

 

Due to her postion with Gothi, she does have an aqquaintence with Hiccup and the other dragon riders, but that's about it. When she's not studying at the School of Dragons during the school year, she's assisting Gothi at her house. She recieved a deep scar across her right eye when training her first dragon Minty. Fortunetly it doesn't affect her vision. It does, however, tend to flare up on occasions, which makes it burn and turn an irritated red.

​The Topaz Chronicles

 

(Thank you so, so much for this, IMV, it means a lot!)

 

Likes: Animals, music, stargazing, watching the sunrise/ sunset, being helpful or witty (which doesn't happen often), practicing with her ax, hanging out with friends (also doesn't happen often)

Dislikes: Being belittled because of her occasional naiveness and/ or appearance (She looks 1-2 years younger than she actually is), the dark/ unknown, romance, pink, girly things in general, the taste of mint (suprisingly enough, she likes the smell though)

 

((Note: Besides her axe, Paz also carries a leather satchel, which has a small first aid kit, compass, a whittleing knife that she uses to carve patterns on her ax handle, a small spyglass and various other items))

 

((Funfact: Paz means peace in Spanish, which I did not know when first creating the character. Ironically enough, being peacefull is not one of her strongsuits))

                  

Main Dragon:

Dragon's name: mint chip

Nickname: Minty

Gender: Female

Species: Deadly Nadder

Class: Tracker (Still don't get why they were moved out of the Sharp class)

Color: Mint Green (Hence the name) with beige details.

Personality: A loyal dragon with a generous helping of wit and sass. She doesn't really see anyone as in charge, so she can be somewhat unpredictable, doing what she wants or thinks is better. She will stick one of her spines in you if annoyed, which Paz figured out quickly. Despite her flaws, she will do anything to protect those who gain her trust. While not the most powerful Nadder due to her size, she is one of the fastest. Racing is one of her favorite hobbies.

 

Likes: Racing, dragon nip, mint, salmon, hunting.

Dislikes: Being cooped up, people who annoy her, being told what to do, swimming.

 

 

"Foster" Dragons:

((She promised Gothi she would rehome these ones. So far that has not happened))

 

 

Dragon's name: shadowofdeath

Nickname: Shadow

Gender: Male

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Pitch Black with a white underbelly.

Personality: Unlike the majority of his species, Shadow is very laid back and extremely lazy. One of the Death twins, he and his sister were rejected by their owner when they didn't live up to expectations. Paz is hoping to work on his work ethic before rehoming him.

 

 

Dragon's name: Milky Way

Nickname: Wé

Gender: Female

Species: Whispering Death

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a galaxy-like pattern on her underbelly that consists of pinks and purples.

Personality: The second of the Death twins, Wé is actually a bit hyperactive, making her have difficulty focusing on the task at hand. Takes interest in the most random things, like the rain, or a bug crawling up a tree, or the sunrise. Paz is hoping to get that under control before rehoming her, but she might not get the chance before her perfect rider comes along (winky wink).

 

 

Dragon's name: Starred and Spangled

Nickname: Spangled

Gender: Male

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Blue with a red underbelly and white spots.

Personality: Stubborn, independant, gruff, toughy on the outside... in a word, PATRIOTIC!!! Wasn't as great of a beginner's dragon as the previous owners thought...

 

 

Annie made by ScarfyWings the Gifted!

Dragon's name: Oceanna

Nickname: Annie

Gender: Female

Species: Gronckle

Class: Boulder

Color: Deep blue with a ocean-like green underbelly.

Personality: Paz's "cuddle buddy", Annie is the most out going and enthusiastic of the bunch. Her love of water and attention has made her Paz's second favorite dragon (after Minty, of course). Unlike the other boulder class dragons on Paz's side of the stable, However, Annie's owner's parents just somewhere for her to stay until thier kid was ready for the responsiblilty of owning a dragon. There will come a day when her "cuddle buddy" will not be around all the time, and Paz is not looking forward to it.

 

RP's that I've taken part in (not all of them were finished)

 

Let's go train a dragon and save the day! (HTTYD RP):

 

Power Play (Superhero RP)

(By the way, if you know of an rp that you think I'd be interested in based on the ones listed above, let me know)

I also have an MCU RP in the making (Planning is on hiatus until whenever I get the motivation to do something with it)

 

 

 

​And now the fun part...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Y'all get to learn

 

 

about me!!!!

 

 

 

(a little bit. Probably wouldn't be wise to give away my secret identity)

​(Not that I'm a celebrity or anything... Or am I?)

 

 

 

​(No... thankfully not... moving on)

 

 

​I'm probably not in any fandoms, per se, but I feel like I have a borderline unhealthy obbsesion for some of the subjects listed below:

 

​(P. S. These are not in any particuar order)

 

HTTYD (why else would I be on here?)

​Big Hero 6

​The Avengers (Actually, just the MCU in general)

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Chronicles of Narnia (sorta, haven't hung out in that fantasy in a while)

​The Fellowship of the Ring

TMNT (The 2012 reincarnation)

​Phineas and Ferb

​Brave

​Star Wars

​Back to the Future

​Moana

Milo Murphey's Law (again, sorta. It only just came out)

(There are probably more. I'll update as I think of them)

 

 

​A couple of not-so-random facts about me

 

1. I'm a Christian.

​2. I'm a pianist.

3. I'm 100% American (Not that it technically means anything as far as ethnic heritage since the US is the mixing pot of cultures and whatnot. I think my great great grandparents were Polish, but besides that I have no idea what my ancestry looks like) Specifically, I'm from the southeastern portion.

4. I've traveled to 18 out of the 50 US states. Outside of my country, I have been to Italy, England, and Germany.

​5. I'm an equestrian.

6. I named my OC after two of my pets.

​7. I sing in the alto section of my choir (which means yes, I'm a girl. Is it just me, or are the majority of the people on this forum also girls?)

​8. I'm working on learning Spanish, so don't be suprised if I pop a couple of spanish words while talking on here. (I probably won't, but if I do, now you know why)

​9. I'm not an artist, but I do draw when I'm bored. If you care to see any examples, you can go to my Art Dump.

 

​I also now have an FAQ if you have additional questions!

 

Favorite Music Artists

NF (Which stands for Nate Feuerstein, not Night Fury), Toby Mac, Ryan Stevenson, Mattew Parker, Jaymie Grace, Tori Kelly, Unspoken, Lecrae... (I could go on for a while, so I'm just gonna stop there)

 

 

 

 

 

Fantasy Idea Corner:

 

(This is likely to be updated every time a new idea pops into my head)

 

(largely, if not entirely based on stuff I've read from other people, so not exactly original)

​Here's an idea for a fanfiction that I'll probably never write

​...As in, 86% certainty that I won't

 

 

Tony Stark A. K. A. "Iron Man" = Hiro Hamada A. K. A.... "?" (Not sure he has a superhero name)

Steve Rogers A. K. A. "Captain America" = Jack Overland Frost A. K. A. "Winter Soldier" (I know, name's taken, not caring over here)

Bruce Banner A. K. A. "The Hulk" = Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III A. K. A. "The Night Fury"

Thor= Merida (They're so cool they don't need an alter ego)

Natasha Romanoff A. K. A. "Black Widow"= Elsa A. K. A. "Frost Bite"

Clint Barton A. K. A. "Hawkeye"= Eugene Fitzherbert A. K. A. "Flynn Rider" ('Cause I don't see how Rapunzel would get caught up in this in the first place)

Nick Fury = Nick Fury ('Cause he's awesome. I'd put Frozone, but that's a little too much ice for my liking)

​Maria Hill = Heather the Unhinged

​Agent Coulsen = Agent Coulsen ('Cause who else is gonna do his job?)

 

​Loki= Merida's brothers (Because I'm evil)

 

​(If you've had any experience with marvel in general, you probably get the idea)

 

 

​This one I'm actually more likely to do at some point... After the HTTYD trilogy is over... So it's gonna be a while before it comes out.

 

The short summary is that when my OC, Paz, is grown up, she'll become an immortal glob trotter.

...I know, that's kinda lame...

 

​BUT IT'S HAPPENING SO BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELTS BECAUSE WE'RE GOING ON A WILD RIDE!!!*

 

 

​*(Actually if you'd just go about your life and forget this was here that'd be great)

 

​And now for random quotes!

 

​"Why are we stopped?​"

​"The light's red.​"

​"... THERE ARE NO RED LIGHTS IN A CAR CHASE!!!​"

Gogo and Wasabi in Big Hero 6

"You, sir are playing a dangerous game. Keeping this much raw... vikingness contained. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!​"

Well, I've recently been developing a new OC, so I thought I might post her here. Tell me what you think of her! And if you have any ideas for me, feel free to share! I might need them...

 

Fridr (don't know her last name yet) and Thistlefrost

(Yes, that picture is by me.)

Fridr is really shy and awkward around other people. She makes my other OC look like an extrovert, compared to her! Family is under construction, but I know she's got a big, burly father that's very exuberant. Sort of like Hagrid in appearance, but much cheerier. She might have an older brother, too. She currently lives in Berk, but may have come from another place with her family. If so, she came from a very warrior-like tribe that was very close-knit and friendly with each other, but Fridr stood out because of her disliking of weapons.

Fridr is scared of a lot, including heights, the dark, weaponry and other things made to cause harm, and until recently, dragons. Her hobbies include composing poetry and reading, but I'm not sure yet what else she likes to do.

Thistlefrost is the semi-reluctant leader of a pack of tiny Prickleboggles. I say semi-reluctant here because he doesn't think he's a good leader, but he has a strong protective instinct that flares up whenever someone he cares for is threatened. Despite this, though, he's not a fighter, and prefers to avoid conflict if possible. He's skittish around those he doesn't know, unless they're injured.

The pair met when Fridr got injured somehow, and Thistlefrost healed her, staying near her to make sure she was alright, causing the two to start forming a bond. They both love helping others and later start an official dragon care clinic after being asked to help injured dragons so often.

 

Anyone have any critiques?

Well. I like the color of blue you picked on that dragon. Not really a critique but I figured it was worth saying.

Heh, thanks. I'm an obsessive color matcher, so they had to have similar colors. HAD to XD

 

Completely unrelated note, does anyone know of a good last name generator?

I Found Another Cool Thread yayz

Alrighty, might as well post a few of my chars here because why noooot XD

 

First up, the dashing, charismatic, and loyal (read: not at all) Skari.

(This image ain't mine, creds go to whoever the artist is. I was searching for something that accurately represented him in this sort of sketch-like style. If I knew the artist, I'd credit 'em, but for now this is as good as I've got. In other news, they did a very excellent job.)

FullSizeRender (8).jpg

Skari grew up in a peaceful tribe (Much like the Peacables from the HTTYD books, for those who know what I'm talking about), and he left at a young age on the hunt for adventure. He practically raised himself, along with his boisterous and lively friend Alf. He's a treasure hunter and a thief for hire, often ending with him on the wrong end of a sword. He can wriggle his way out of the most precarious situations, and has a reputation for being as slippery as an eel and as sly as a snake. Besides this, he has a quick wit and is actually pretty funny and a good friend, for those of whom stick around long enough to get to know him. Advice from anyone who has met him: NEVER, EVER TRUST HIM! Not with valuables, not with weapons, nothing. Ever.

 

Then, there's Stormy, my overzealous Viking character who likes throwing things- especially sharp things. She's an interesting case, most often found riding her Skrill and terrorizing civilians or...yeah, you guessed it, throwing axes. And she's a full-blooded- Surprise! - Berserker. Shocking....no pun intended.

Though she seems a little out there and probably mentally unstable, she's a loyal friend through and through and will stick to you until the bitter end.

Done by the fantabulous TohiLosi.

stormy_by_tohilosi.png

 

And lastly, my HTTYD Book OC Rusty of the Meatheads. She's cheerful, lively, and pretty inventive. Exactly as you might expect from a Meathead, she's as stubborn as an ox, and once she has a goal, there isn't anything that will stop her. She loves constructing devices, especially if they're destructive, and they only work 30% of the time- but no one's going to tell her otherwise!

Anyways, those are only a few of my OCs...I have a bunch more. Those are just the ones you'll see a lot on the forums.

Kuba

This is Kuba. I am finishing up Guardians of Siide to set up for the next novel. Kuba is the main character in the next novel: Rebels of Nesqio

At first, Kuba was a character made out of boredom, and for fun. Kuba was based off of John Cooper, the singer and bassist of the band Skillet. Since he likes to be called 'Doggie' I found it funny if I would draw him as a dog. I deleted the first picture because I needed to save memory. Kuba, or at that time, John Cooper, just sat there alone for a while though I got my main OC Tatus already. Though, a couple of times it would be kinda cool to fit his design into my series, although it would be better to make some adjustments.

 

A while later, I decided to make another drawing of him with Tatus just for fun and practice. That picture is also deleted. Though I am still intrigued by the design, after another while I finally made John a character. The personality, appearance, voice, and even name would be based off of the real guy, but obviously I can't keep it. I have to make tweaks, not just because its too close to a real person but it also needs to fit in the Uribian environment.

 

First thing was to change his name. This took me a couple of minutes to come up with the perfect one that fits into the boundary, Kuba. The second was the species. As a random design, I looked for a species of dog that looks the closest like the original. The Jack Russell Terrier was the best fit, and finally, the character. The personality is at least based off of the original design, but I made him a little more outgoing and enthusiastic, but yet insecure and a little less playful.

 

The newer designs of him has made the final tweaks and now he is going to be in the next novel. He has finally became an official OC.
