EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I LOVE and support fan characters (and original characters as well). I have my own fan characters AND pair them up with official characters. I have nothing against FCxCanon pairings! It's just that I think that making a stamp for your own fan character is kind of self-centered. I'm not going to hate you for that, anyway.
Actually, the text is meant to be "Making a stamp for your OC/your OCxCanon shipping is stupid", but 'shipping' didn't fit there...
This is something that pisses me off. Badly. It's okay if you want to create a stamp saying "I support my OCs" (I have mine as well, just... well, it sucks X'D) because everybody who loves their OCs can use it too. But seriously, making a stamp claiming that you're a fan of your own OC (or your OCxCanon pairing) is the most self-centered thing to do.
Of course, I support my own OCs and I love them very much. But I'm not going to make a stamp for them. It's true that I made a stamp for my Naruto OC a long time ago, but I realized how selfish I was and deleted it. My friends should have flamed me for making it... I appreciate that they liked the stamp because that meant they liked my OC, but I was still being a self-centered bitch -_-"
The same applies if you make a stamp for your beloved OCxCanon shipping. Seriously, it only makes your OC look like a Mary Sue. Also, the girls who usually make these stamps are obsessive fangirls, which add more retard-ness to the stamp. If your OCxCanon pairing is oh-so-popular and well developed (which usually doesn't apply to these kind of people's OCs), be sure that someone will make a stamp for it. The same goes for your OC.
That's because now I'm making stamp for my friends <3 I prefer to spend my 'talent' (if I have some when it comes to stamps XD) in my friends, because they are the ones who actually deserve the love and the support <3
Personally, I think that it's more special when someone makes a stamp for you (your OC, your OCxCanon shipping or whatever), because it shows that people actually like your characters, and you feel loved <3 But if you make a stamp for your OC, even if people like/fave/use it, you'll always know that you made it because no one did. And you know what it means
Of course, let's not forget all those fantards who make Fan Clubs for their Mary Sues OCs
PEOPLE, THIS IS MY OPINION. If you agree, fav this stamp and comment if you feel like it. If you disagree, simply go back, please.
That is egocentric in many ways. I have a few OC'S but I don't go round making stamps for them. My OC's took seven years to develop but it was worth the time. I have seen groups which is only about their OC which doesn't allow fanart of any other character at all. That is egocentric. That's why I keep my OC's to myself, I may mention them and may write short stories with them, but that is how far it goes.
Exactly! I can understand if someone likes their own characters so much she (or he) makes stamps for them, but I can't help finding it quite egoistical and pathetic. If your characters are really good, someone will make the stamp for you!
And I couldn't agree more about the groups. That is, by far, one of the most pathetic things I've seen here, whether the OC is popular or not.
I've always hated stamps for FCs/OCs because I think it's egotistical and chances are few people will recognize your OC. I refuse to make stamps for ANY of my OCs and I will not allow other people to do so either.
Well, I personally don't mind if people make stamps for other artists' characters. I mean, yeah, some of us are very unpopular and very few people might recognize our characters but it's a bit unfair thinking we don't deserve a stamp just because of that But yes, making a stamp for ourselves will always be egoistical in my eyes as well.
