Hello! I'd like to add my comics of my OC's but I'm not sure in which category I should submit it
BlackHatsnsd Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ummm, so this community is only for ocs of your own, not fandom based ocs.

but the oc could be based on a real life character right? like my oc John Ezekiel Monclair, he is kinda based on a few movie characters.
Amasteria Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Is he based on anybody from Priest? Saw the username and had to...

As long as he doesn't belong to the world you took the base from, it is fine. And it isn't an obvious copy, like "Look at my magical pony!" 

The main thing is not making him so similar that he is easily rated as a  fancharacter, or that it seems that you are trying to claim the series he is based off of. 

Traits are just traits, many of my characters use other ideas in their designing. 
BlackHatsnsd Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahh, well I am claiming anything, he is just an oc that I use in rps.
Managodess Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I have a curious question: Is it permitted to submit couple art of one of your own OCs and an OC that belongs to a friend?
Amasteria Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
We only accept work in which you own all of the characters, jointly owned counts as well.
Managodess Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Alright, thank you for the reply.
