-OC Appreciation- by ZombiDJ -OC Appreciation- by ZombiDJ
ALRIGHT! it's finally done!

Well as the title states this is my Original Character Appreciation bunch! With FIVE people whom I adore and love. I really couldn't choose only one since my inspiration comes from so many...

They're all not just amazing artists but amazing friends of mine as well, and they have inspired me so much with their art during my time on Deviantart.

:iconseizuredemon: - Zach, your art is one of the freakiest styles around DA. Seriously, It's both VERY detailed and so god damn KICK ASS. ARRGH! You always have the neatest ideas for art too. I chose to draw Ratch since he's my favourit out of your characters. As we both know he's the type who would get along with Gor VERY well.

:iconnosleepjinx: - Tara, your art is a SMILE DRUG! If I'm down I just need to visit your gallery and POOF! I have the hugest smile on my face. I adore your art since it has so much life in it. You're a really hard worker when it comes to art and that is a huge inspiration to me. I chose to draw Jinx since...well who doesnt love Jinx!? *snugs him* He's the character with the most expressions I've ever seen. Jinx of 1000 faces...

:iconvegetassquee: - Lucy, honey...you tell me you don't draw much. And I totally agree with you. But that doesn't mean you should give up on it, because girl...your WRITING just amazes me. You have writing skills which just sucks me right in and doesn't let go, even after I'm done reading. I chose to draw Bibby since I've been RPing with you for more than four years now...FOUR YEARS! and Bibby has been with us all the way from the start. Oh, and he's friggen hot baby!

:iconvaporotem: - Vap, I really admire how you make digital art look so easy! HOWWWW??? You have the whackiest style and bunch of characters I've seen (your OC Hell will prolly kill me for saying that), you got like no limit to your imagination when it comes to comics, fanart or whatever. It...never...ENDS. I chose to draw Vap since it's you persona but also since I love her design. MONGOOSE/DOG/BEAR FOR THE WIN.

:iconpawfeather: - John, I can't say how much your art inspire me, especially your skills in perspective! You work with anatomy amazingly well and your art just pushes me into working harder with my own art. I chose to draw Poxy since she's such a carefree and loving character! I adore her cheekyness and how fluffy she always is, plus her design is so fun to work with!

Regardless of where you are, you would still need a Trademark of the Specific Region of which this piece of art was Trademarked. It would be wise to put in your "No Authorization" Sign, No Authorization To "Enter Your Registered Trademarks Region"

The artist themself can decide whether or not the general public can steal their art or not. Oi.

sorry, old comment stalk is old but this kind of stuff ticks me off. :'P

(it's ok, i love to stir up conversation)
While it should be the artist decision, it's not. Legally anyone can use any of these in any way shape or form unless it is CR in the proper territory one is using it in. fortunately many artist on DA understand and respect the wrongs in using others OC's, whether there copyrighted or not.

I read through the copyright laws ages ago though, the same thing that applies to fanart applies to characters the artist has made, if they drew it, another can't steal it and post it elsewhere without the artist's permission. It's not a problem if they draw the characters, they just can't call it their own idea. :noes:
And not everyone lives within the US, in other places, there's other views on how copyright should be handled. So on the internet it should be assumed that any art drawn by an artist that clearly has stated not to use it anywhere if it's not for you, that you shouldn't use it. : P

You clearly didn't look into it with much detail. Unless the "Thief" makes a profit from the stolen idea in any way, shape, or form then it is fair-game. If they are to just post pictures for fun then it is completely legal. That is limited to the point at which one starts to make money from the idea. It's called intellectual property and pertains to tort laws.

OOOOOOoooooooooooo
always with the profit thing. blah whatever. =P
as DJ stated before and as I'm going to restate it to my own beliefs, not every one of us lives in the putridly confusing capitalist land of the United States, the US is just a [probably somewhat large, but, no matter] portion of the internet : P

EEE! Lookit all the little tooshies! This...is...by far one of my favorites takes on Jinx I've ever seen....ever. Agh! Just look at him. His face is just...Agh! *smooshes it* I love how you gave em fatter ears with frilly tips and the fur coming out the sides of his scaly tail rings is amazing! You got him so dead on. Ya know I never draw Jinx in the same expression more than once. :3 I love all the poops you have listed too. All of them are amazing. I'm still oogling over this, its just so fantastic.

BTW I think Im going to send off a wittle package to you soon, I have some new candy and things I'd like to send off to ya c:

Lookit Ratch! You got him PERFECT. I love how you did his mouth and his gangley arms and I just wanna sharpen my pencil in his belly button. And he looks good with his little purple frill. I love that Jinx too! Tara and me were both oggling over this when she was here this week. Hehe and I wonder why Jinx is lookin over at Ratch like that heheh.
Grrr I really gotta draw you something noooow! Thank you so much :D

Excellent job; giving them a dash of their own styles and combining it with your own! :thumbsup:

they are so awesome that they don´t need clothes.

There´s nothing better than draw for the people you love.

For some reason I love how you did the Zach´s character expression and Vaporotem.

The way you drew Jinx's little feets is so cute >u< they remind me of socks. I also love how you did his tail! The pot-belly and those spindly fingers on Ratch look great! You really captured in their characters!

Damn four years!? that must be a record lol yeah bibby would be classed as a veteran lol!

Thanks for your kind words sweetie i appreciate everything you do for me alot :heart:

You know how to draw though, I mean i wouldnt have been able to draw bibby otherwise!

Teek: yeah bibby you can invade my country whenever ya want hehehehe

I get the feeling this is the first time I've seen you draw Vap through your style. Usually it's the other way around. Anyway, they all look great, it's nice to know how much admeration you hold for each of them. :D

And I agree, Tara's art is a "smile bomb" and Vap's art is very wacky, plus, yeah, she does make digital art look easy; I'm trying out Flash now and can't for the life of me figure out how anything works. *huff*
