Long overdue. Several people did this a while back and were lovely to feature my OCs. So I will feature theirs first, and then...
• For the first 15 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them. [I will go to your gallery and pick one character. If you have an OC folder, please link it as it will help].
• THIS PART IS OPTIONAL, but it would be nice if you did it
----> If you comment, please do the same in your journal, adding one of my OCs to the list. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! If you featured one of my OCs and I missed you on this list, please nudge me. I'm still a bit disorganized getting back to dA
With a gallery full of lovely characters from her novel (and I have to tell you, I ADORE her art style), it was really hard to choose. I was leaning towards the Crowleys, but felt that would be a cheat. Anyhow, Iris is simply lovely. Her very period hair-style, eyes, and refined look. She is a gorgeous characters.
I really tried hard to pick one of the other characters, but in the end I came back to Daniel. I love complex, imperfect, and tragic characters. Daniel is trapped in his life, having suffered an immeasurable loss, and he spends his life struggling and conflicted. He escapes into his stories, first figuratively, then literally. He's just an amazing character with an amazing design.
There are so many lovely characters in Justyne
's gallery, but I have to admit, I just found myself drawn to Miles. Even moreso when I read about his character -- the sweet, bit of a dope, hero-type. Yeah, I know, the bad boys are sexy, but I have a big soft spot for the loveable (and good looking) good guys. *sigh* And honestly, this picture by alexzappa is so gorgeous. I'm jelly!
With so many wonderful characters (and adorable couples), it was hard to pick a favorite in her gallery. In the end, I chose her main OC, Feliane. I very much like how she is shown strong, but with a softness to her. The flowers often seen in her hair give her such an approachability, yet you can see in her eyes she is not to be underestimated.
I have to admit, I love a good villain. Even more, I love a good villain with an awesome design. Hadrian is one of those guys that you get a bad feeling about just looking at him. Of course, forcing poor Hetta to marry him to save her love is just wicked, and wicked cool (from a writing POV).
Commenter Featured OCs
While I adore Luciana, I am going to pick Lykaios here. I think he's an amazing character. And I will admit to being totally biased as he is one of my all-time favorite, non-canon, loves of Sara. Seriously, I adore them as a couple, and I just love Ly to pieces.
I think a few months ago, I would have picked Emrah. But Jurre is now, by far, my favorite of her characters. I feel honored to have gotten to know him better recently and I have to say I just love how complex, and rough-around-the edges, he is. And he's a hottie, too.
Another no-brainer for me. I love Leo Solaris. He's a sweet guy, but he's also a tough and skilled fighter--and a superhero. Just the type of guy that makes my heart melt. I love his character design. And the fact he spends his day as a librarian seals the deal.
While I have to admit, I love Magma (I feel like she and Dark Flame could be a cool superhero team), I had to go with Ghost. I love her costume design, her powers, and that hair! Seriously, Maygirl has a great set of OC heroes and Ghost is a great example of their good looks.
As much as I leaned toward featuring his superhero, I had to go with showcasing the civilian side of his main OC, Charles Lawston. I love the fact he is more-or-less an average joe. And I adore the idea he is an antique shop owner and has a style that is reminiscent of the Old West. Plus, gotta love those John Lennon (or Harry Potter depending on your generation) glasses.
It was a difficult decision, but I finally went with Jamie. I have to admit that I have a huge soft-spot for gingers, and that mess hair just makes him look adorable. Reminds me a bit of my own, OC, Andy. Jamie's design is great, and he's a hottie, too. Awesome character.
All right, comment below to have one of YOUR OCs featured. Oh, and if you don't do this in your journal, maybe you'll be nice and just link in your comment which of my OCs you like.
