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.
I find it okay when the specific pairing or OC is popular, but everywhere I see people making stamps (or even groups) for OCs or pairings that are unheard of...with like 2-3 favorites. Yeah no. That just makes them look self-centered.
I find that a bit unfair, I mean, maybe your OC isn't very popular but it would deserve a group or a stamp more than the current, popular OCs. Just because an OC is popular doesn't mean it's well done and developed (it tends to be the opposite, actually), and just because another OC is unpopular doesn't mean it's badly written, in fact, I've come across numerous unpopular OCs that had very plausible backstories and relationships with canon characters. Having a popular OC doesn't have to give you more rights than creators of less unpopular or unknown OCs. I'm still against groups dedicated to a single OC, though, whether it's popular or unpopular. I can kinda deal with stamps, but that's all.
Well, I didn't say if the creator of said popular OC made them, did I? What I mean by popular is if people are asking the creator to make a group/stamps, or they make them themselves. I come from a fandom where my OCs are well-known and I have been asked before if I would make a fanclub for them, I said no, but I have made stamps for those who asked. I mean I do agree that some popular OCs or pairings are terrible, but if they have a large fanbase, who are we to say otherwise? They love it and they can have their fun. It's just wrong when some artist tries to boost their ego by making a group or stamps for a character that only like 10 people know exist.
Ah, now I know what you mean. Yes, I've also been asked to make stamps of my OCs (or been asked by a certain someone if they could do a stamp for my OCs), so I know what you mean. But yeah, I would probably refuse to do a fanclub for my characters as well. If someone wants it so badly, then leave them create it by themselves, right? Even if I'm asked to do it, I feel like I'm being too self-centered, I just can't help it! And there are many other ways to boost your ego aside from creating shitty fanclubs that only ten friends will join.
I remember I had a friend who'd always played "competition" with me, like back then when were younger, I would like (this chararacter) and she would too, but she'd over do it to show that she liked the character more than I did (also does a million requests to other people for her ocxcanon) and shoved it down everyone's throats. Then later she made her own stamps of ocx(thischaracter) and requested stamps of said ocx(thischaracter), made me sick.
and I remember becoming sick of it and a friend made me a stamp of one of my fan characters to make me feel better bout it, which was really nice but I felt kind of bad about it cause I'm not really the one for attention. Also when she asked me if i was okay, my "friend" just told her that I was being "jealous".
Bluh I was just glad that I wasn't that crazy back then like she was, wheezes, but this stamp brings back a lot of memories ..i remember faving this in my old account and i might just favorite it again 8V this is one of my top 5 favorite stamps on this website
pero mi reina TU TIENES STAMPS EN TU PERFIL DE TUS OCS que esta doble moral? xDDDDDDD pero bueno si respeto tu opinion
y si bueno te entiendo es lo mismo con los fanclubs aunque preferiria no lo dijeras poniendo stamps xDDDD
y en parte me queda el saco porque enrealidad si he hecho stamps de mis ocs xD lo admito uwu asi como muchas de mis amigas las hacen o las compran (como tu, por eso pense que no era malo teniendo le conocimiento de como hacerlas) no pense que fuera un motivo o una señal de auto ego de ser una forever alone para ti dios no se que decir
pero en mi caso la mayor parte de las veces es porque me han pedido las stamps para ponerlas en sus perfiles (ya que muchos no las saben hacer) y otras me las han hecho xDDDDDD tambien hago requests de stamps para otras personas
Las "stamps" de mis OCs han sido hechas por otras personas Yo nunca las haría, lo veo como algo egoísta, no lo puedo evitar Y si las han hecho otras personas, por supuesto que las voy a poner en mi perfil, con lo bonitas que les quedan. En realidad, no odio a la gente que hace stamps de sus OCs, es simplemente lo que he mencionado al principio. Sólo es mi punto de vista (bueno, y el de muchas otras personas que han faveado la stamp), no todo el mundo tiene que estar de acuerdo.
De todos modos, los fanclubs son mucho peores. Las stamps las puedo soportar, pero los que abren fan clubs para sus personajes o sus parejas... no los puedo tomar en serio
xDDDDDD bueno en mi opinion para m ie exactamente lo mismo pedir una comision de una stamp de tu oc si te las hacen por regalo y gusto pues vale xD pero siento que es igual de egocentrista comprarlas que hacerlas pero como dices es mi punto de vista para mi es igual
yo entiendo o.o lo que pasa es que si lo he hecho me puse a pensar que quiza tu pensaras eso de mi >///////< como dije muchas me las pidieron porque las querian para sus perfiles y bueno muchas amigtas las hacen pense que no era malo si tenia el conocimiento xDDDDD ademas de que otras me las dieron y bueno las pocas que he hecho si me quedo el saco fue doloroso lo admito TwT es la primera vez que veo un conocido pensar asi
XDDD de los fanclubs ni hablar eso es un poco lejos O3OU pero ya hay muchas que abren sus FC y tiene muchos miembros que bueno genralmente los invitan (que se me hace mucho peor que crear el club en si) pero bueno xD
I did read the description but I was only curious if it also meant people who draw pictures of their OCxCanon pairing since they are promoting their pairing that way too. Nothing more and nothing less.
Ah, but there's nothing wrong with promoting your own OCs and your OCxCanon shippings, I just think it's silly to create a stamp for them because it's obvious that you support your characters and their pairings with canon character (otherwise, you wouldn't have created them).
