I'm sharing this cause I know there is a lot of people out there, like me, who drew or created something and it's a true piece of art. They are so proud of it and they feel there nothing else like it. Until they find a website or advertisement, through social networking or public endorsement, their idea or something related incorporating that idea. They get very upset and want to throw that idea away, feeling bad that they did not put the idea out earlier or that the other person stole that idea, in which case it's not as "original" as they hoped. If that was you, you'd want to do something about it.

Well this is my experience. I have over seventy Sonic Fancharacters and counting. The problem I have is the fear of negative criticism, and because I have this fear I fail to put my ideas out there. My friend is a victim of this. It is hard for an individual to determine, they go off of instinct. "I did not steal this idea" would be easily acknowledged as a lie depending on the situation of the matter. My friend introduced a fancharacter named Anna the Hedgehog, and she has a striking resemblance to Purity the Hedgehog in some instances. Roughly accused of ripping off of Purity, my friend ignored and set aside her character Anna, and refused to create any ideas.
This makes me come to the realization that no work is truly original especially if it is fanmade. It is considered unique in it's own being. The love you put into the character is what brings it to life. The appearance is not even the latter part, it's the personality that you give the character, how their hobbies, likes and dislikes form them as a character. And appearance isn't as important, and let me tell you WHY. A few months ago I was considering uploading all sorts of pictures of my fancharacters onto deviantart to share with other people of that same interest. I thought back to my friend with her character Anna and begin to wonder how common my characters were, not individually but in a grand scheme of things. I searched google to find anyone with characters of the same species or the same names. I found a few. My character Spyro the Hedgehog has a "twin" and I didn't even realize it. They do not look the same but have the same name and are both hedgehogs. I shrugged it off thinking well hedgehogs are very common in the Sonic community and Spyro is just a damn cool name. Luna is a give in for a name, it is very common. Luna means 'moon', it's graceful and pretty, so many people would have a character with that name. What really hits me though is as a mentioned at the beginning of this note that I created something I was so proud of that I thought was very creative but I was wrong. With no fault towards the other artist, yesterday I had found somebody with a Manta Ray character. I did one thing none of you should do, I began to tear down MY Manta Ray character, saying degrading things about it, like "it doesn't even look like a Manta Ray, or it doesn't even have the Sonic style art it should even be considered a Sonic Fancharacter". I was being really hard on myself and began doing the same thing with ALL my characters. Then after many hours of feeling horrible and degrading myself and my skills and thought "NO! I should not feel bad, I did nothing wrong".

Listen to me, everyone who reads this and took the time to read this. Your ideas and your characters are your own. The personality, the life you put into that character is what makes it unique and original. Every individual has different ideas because we are all different, we think differently, we write differently, we have different likes and beliefs, and WE ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT ART STYLE. This is what I realized and I missed it. A lot of you who read this are most likely my peers and you already know this, but this is for those who don't. For Sonic Fancharacter creators and creations, there are many species out there, we'll all try something different and out there because we feel it's original, but it's the character we put into that species that makes it worth while. Which is why I am NOT afraid to upload all those pictures I have. Those who think otherwise can say whatever they want. I am proud of my ideas and my characters and I want to introduce them because of that.

Awww thank you, yeah I'm 23 and I'm not enjoying it. I've been really busy with personal stuff and have a lot on my mind, deviantart or old forums is the last thing on my mind unfortunately. I am working on a large animation project with my fancharacters and am going to be updating artwork and stories about those fancharacters on here. Like I should've done six years ago LOFL.

What's new with you? How is the forum coming along?
