As our beloved OP won't be able to post this week's thread, I have taken it upon myself to do so. So here is October 11th 2021's addition of the OC Redraw Thread. Enjoy!

Previous Thread:
>>5663018

Maybe we can use the Anchor below as a catalog for OCs so other users can just click the links and get straight to the OCs.

It was used for deliveries, why change it?
>>
>>5675942
>It was used for deliveries, why change it?
it would make it easier to find actual ocs to draw. deliveries already are replies to ocs, so why also make them replies to an anchor post?
>>
>>5675949
This was my thinking ngl. The meaning of the anchor ever since it first started was sort of nebulous, I just see it as easier this way. Find an OC you like, and then the OC post will also have deliveries attached if you want to see them.
>>
>>5675949
>>5675958
That's how it works on every drawthread, you anchor deliveries not requests. It also helps to see quickly all the content made for the thread
Do some basic research next time
>>
>>5675959
i'm aware of how it works in other drawthreads, but drawthreads are for requests, whereas this thread isn't.
>>
>>5675942
Yeah I'm early by about 6-8 hours I'll admit.

As for the second point. The OP who usually does these threads recently said they'll be busy so they can't set up the new one. They said wolftwink anon had something in mind but I wanted to beat them to the punch no lie.

As for the third point, refer to >>5675958

I hope that answers your questions.
>>
>>5675959
I come to this thread to draw, not ask for people to draw my stuff. Make a request thread if you want a standard draw thread
>>
>>5675964
wouldn't it be easier to find things to draw if they were all in one place?
>>
>>5675961
Ah ok I wasn't aware, my apologies. I only come on /ic/ to draw in these redraw threads
>>
>>5675969
Yes, I'm agreeing that OCs should be anchored instead of deliveries, sorry if I didn't make that clear
>>
>>5675962
You decided to switch the anchor's purpose to suit your preference and rushed a thread out of pettiness?
>>5675969
It would be convenient but it's not the traditional anchor role and it might encourage the parking of ocs instead of actual trading
>>5675961
What's the difference? You pick something to draw and deliver just like a drawthread

Hopefully I can do a decent amount of deliveries this time around, cuz lord knows I need the practice.

This is Molly, former mc of the story i'm writing before I swapped her with >>5652693. She's a fledgling witch who's kindhearted and quite soft-spoken, which makes her easy to get along with. She is also a character I made when 6 years old when I starting drawing because of Sailormoon (though she looked like a bootleg sailor scout with red pigtails lol)

Lewd attracts too many entitled fags who only their shit drawn and nothing else ( speaking from experience. Make your own Lewd OC Thread if you must, but please don't post it here.
>>
>>5676212
yeah this is pretty much why I'm sad all I know is how to lewd
>>
>>5676215
genuinely curious, but if you can draw lewd shouldn't you be able to draw an ordinary portrait? IMO lewd is harder to draw since it requires expression and eroticism, so cant you at the very least draw an oc's face with idle expression or something?
>>
>>5676220
I went through a lot of Hogarth Bammes and the force series, I can't draw stiffness to save my fucking life
>>
>>5676215
you can make a character sexy without them being naked right?
>>
>>5676237
risque maybe, yes
>>
>>5676230
Can you at least draw a face? Unless you draw lewds without faces. Hogarth is mostly anatomy, right, so can you only draw nude bodies or muscles?
>>
>>5676212
I know, i hate lewd for this reason. People can't be civil
>>5676215
I feel you bro.....
>>
>>5676249
Yeah I can draw that, I just find it incredibly boring to just do a portrait

Why don't you guys just try doing non-lewd? I mean you say you can't do it, but it's worth trying right? Just have fun, no one should be entitled to expect drawings or get any certain quality anyway. Attempting to go out of your comfort zone could be good practice too

Also to add on, I'm not sure what other anons think, but IMO I would rather see more deliveries from different anons than deliveries only from regularposters. I always enjoy seeing the deliveries from regulars, but it's better if more anons participate, regardless of experience of skill as everyone has different levels of experience.

nice trips.

I'm a mere lurker at this point, but I honestly don't mind seeing the same anons posting. I like their styles, and these threads definitely beat the crab/schizo-posting threads that have shat up the board lately.

Like this guy said >>5676513 this is definitely the most welcoming thread on the board.
>>
>>5675949
>>5675942
I think it'd be good to have an anchor for each. I was the one who suggested anchoring deliveries at first, and I said it because I realized if there was a general anchor post to attach all deliveries to we wouldn't have to worry about hunting down OP posts from several threads ago to link them and everyone could quickly check if they got anything. But as anon points out these threads are unique because of the reciprocal nature and it would actually be super convenient to have a separate post to link OCs to especially if anyone does go through archived threads looking for characters to draw which i myself plan to do.
I don't want to make too many waves, i enjoy the simplicity of these threads well, I'm putting the idea of having an anchor for OCs and one for deliveries out there for everyone to consider.

I draw lewds alot for general payment but I pretty much always frame things the same way as action poses. I'm way more interested in doing action shots than static stuff, so why not try that? it's a great way to get into the flow of things.

Pic related where I was helping someone understand pose flow and how Strega is drawn. Learn action, it's always fun.
>>
>>5676532
Well, I actually like the regular posters a lot and always enjoy seeing their art. I just worded myself wrong, sorry. I meant to say I would just love to see more anons join in, including regulars, as more deliveries the better. It would just be nice if more anons joined in to contribute is all, as sometimes when regular posters don't show up or post less, deliveries are notably fewer.
>>5676717
These threads get a lot of begs from low begs to sometimes even the occasional pro. Don't be afraid at all! No one here shits on delivery quality except schizos and derailers

this is my oc: Rhythm with her creator Dr. Wagner
Rhythm is a new model android, her brain uses no computers or living tissue but its cognition surpasses all other robots. She is about 155cm tall and only has weapons for self defense, a beam saber or gun on each arm. Her main locomotion is skimming the surface, the head verniers are for mobility and emergency escape.
Dr. Wagner is the creator of all new model androids. He is a great but vengeful scientist who has lived for centuries and only his brain and heart are still organic. Dr. Wagner created Rhythm and his other androids to end a 500 years war between the remnants of the human race and an out of control terraforming AI.

It's really futile to suggest something like "just draw" to out run shitposters.
It takes ~an hour for someone to draw an OC and 3 seconds for someone to shitpost.
I'd suggest at least commenting/asking questions about people's OC's or drawing styles more other than just waiting for deliveries.

Not taking the low energy bait really does go a long way, but the reality is that someone it going to flingshit back eventually. with that being said I agree that there should be more tidbits/ general lore about characters, design inspiration critiques about design etc. anything that's more than just fags yelling at fags for being fags.

Continue posting ocs. No matter how much experience you have, you will never be as cringe as the projecting and insecure fag with his reddit-tier analogy. Regardless of the art skill or design, anyone who posts their oc is automatically based in my book because they aren't a pussy and are putting it out there knowing it can get shat on.
>>5675991

>>5681040
"Just draw" mainly refers to shitters. Those who ask about characters are usually fine because they contribute and are most likely eventually going to draw or are regulars.
>>5681067
agreed. This happens often but this time the thread got hit worse more than usual.
>>
>>5681072
Not a designer, but personally I think it's that it's an actual character sheet that dismantles the design thoroughly and also shows some expressions of the character. It gives a brief idea of the character without words and is organized well. Showing the equipment is a nice touch and the individual designs all add to the overall aesthetic of theme of the design.

I challenged myself to do project-based learning and so, i wanted a science fantasy world and characters.

I try to be linear in my thoughts and processes but it never ends up linear, and thats okay, new ideas come and it may destroy prior works. the world i thought about was a science fantasy and i did an original take in thumbnails, then i did a lot of research about worldbuilding in fantasy, scifi, and science fantasy. After that, i did a lot of iterations of characters in silhouette that would fit in the world and exploring the shapes.

Before doing this take, i gathered some references and further researched for this specific character. Then when i was drawing, i vaguely thought about some backstories and what his work is. I was still exploring while drawing and still researched about many things and possibilities; i also wanted to draw him a gun, possibly a sniper rifle and other gears included that would be needed for it to be optimized. Maybe ill add it next time.

I try to not mix my fantasies and believes in a character, i try to make my characters as independent as possible from my biases.

Idk wtf you are saying and am unsure if even you do yourself. Don't interject into the middle of an argument if you're unwilling to actually follow it from the beginning. I was verbally assaulted unprovoked.
Do not call me "reddit" you are projecting. You're literally whiteknighting someone you don't know. If Nat doesn't want someone to mention his twitter handle then perhaps don't link his twitter on this website. Or atleast post a disclaimer along with his post as you can't expect someone to read every post in every thread. He's an easily recognisable artist that many anons know of, I never knew mentioning his twitter username was an issue.

>>5680984
I fail to see where I made an "etiquette fucky wucky". I recognised a popular /ic/ artist and was verbally accosted for it. I have not provoked nor escalated this argument. All of my posts that you claim are "derailing" the thread are replies to other anons slander against me. So your attacks of my ego could just as easily be said to you and the anons who insist on attacking me. You're literally begging god for me to stop posting, because your ego is so inflated you cannot resist continuing this verbal slander against me. So long as your verbal assault continues so to will my verbal defense. You and the others have started so called "derailment" and choose o continue it.

yeah i really advocate project-based learning. Most people have unrealistic expectations about the duration of the project, so don't get overwhelmed about the scope of it, especially when designing worlds, characters, and stories.

It may take up to a year to make your world project fleshed out. Give yourself some leeway and do other things aside from the project, you dont really wanna force it except if you wanna incorporate a deadline since it is a personal work.

for other things to optimize learning, you gotta take notes and learn the most optimized way to learn, such as neuroplasticity, spaced repetition, rests, etc. Rest is incredibly important. Your brain actually plays back information when youre resting; you get more repetitions. So essentially, instead of bruteforcing your way learning, it is more beneficial resting and relaxing in your bed and not thinking. So after drawing, you nap. and while drawing, randomly rest for around 10-30 seconds. Dont butcher your night sleep and take 8 hours or more. Good luck anon

dads and daughters or grandpas and granddaughters are the most wholesome thing to draw. I think I'll try finishing this illustration. if anyone's got some tips on how to improve Wagner's hanging sleeves I'd love to hear it, no clue how cloth would behave here and this is such a specific thing I couldn't find any refs
>>5681764
holy mother of a fuck, that harpy drawing is a gift that keeps on giving. She looks so damn adorable here...
>Feed the bird.
if I fed her then how would she fly, kek. She needs to be as thin as possible. I took that idea from Monster Musume where all harpies look like lolis, and the explanation for that is needing to weigh as little as possible. Tho I also like strong meaty legs, so I added that too... it may not be consistent, but I like my harpies that way. But again, I love how you painter her here. How long it took? Blog?

She normally doesn't have one. it's hidden grand majority of the time. It's explicitly meant to look 'wrong' and characters comment on how creepy it looks.

I think a mouth should be avoided if she's mouthless by defualt.
Or maybe go to the extreme with it and make it extra angry/creepy/weird but only for very rarely for special occasions.
In Danganronpa some characters have a sprite where they look absolutely crazy and it always has an impact when it appears.

Again it's normally hidden. initially it was just two sets of jagged teeth but it just didn't real too well.

This was the initial sketches of the idea last year, which was meant for the storyboard of animation pilot. I kinda don't like the structure of it here as much, which is why I was playing with how to make it look a little less spooky.

how does that mouth appearing and hiding even work? it's like neo's melting mouth in matrix? feels kinda pointless unless it's important somehow

there's story reasons, but basically every robot person in the story has a mouth of some kind, regardless of whether it's explicitly visible or not.
For instance, this is the other lady is a mercenary chef in the main cast, she's got a much goofier approach by comparison to fit her tone as a character.

Strega, specifically is different for story reasons, which is why there's two sets of them basically.

personally i'd make the teeth follow other lines in the face, first one has her hair point down so i made the teeth point down then curve out with the eye, second one had the eye lines pointing towards the center so i made them clustered in the middle and left edges of the mouth empty. again its just how i draw things not a rule by any means. don't think i did good job anyways, i like how yours look more and i think its a pretty cool concept to go for!
>>5682477

>>
>>5682826
the reason not to do that is because it's visual noise. you can't get an expression from it easily, and the structure doesn't read as anything. I figured out really quickly that when you just do the jagged shape, it reads as almost nothing if you look at it from any distance other than close up. you basically can't get an emotion across well with it, even when you do it by drawing a mouth shape first and then doing the jagged.

If you want to know the idea behind it, it's alot of Warsman/SteCassette-King from Kinnikuman, but also this goofy looking Pacman mask. It allows for a good blend of visual clarity and menace, though I'm sorta doing it rather poorly as I've never actually tried this before.

Like how you rendered here, it's nice. NTA, but I also find it a bit weird like >>5682705 said
with how there's no seams where the mouth appears and disappears. If it's a gag I guess it doesn't really matter much, and the idea is nice. However, the perspective of the open mouth does make it seem like she kind of has the snout of a reptile.

>>5683002
never thought about that i guess that's why you made her actual jagged teeth color similar to the black of the mouth that pretty smart
>>
>>5683083
Yeah, it's meant mainly as a gag tool or to showcase extreme emotion, so I'm not worried as much about the practialities of it. After a point the only thing I'm worried about is visual clarity, since if I can finally get around to animating it, the extra lines will be one less thing to worry about except for closeup shots.

>what kind of ocs do you usually like drawing?
I guess that I tend to gear toward OCs that lean more towards being out of the 'ordinary' the most part, that's not to say that modern day jeans and t-shirt ocs are bad or anything, but there's just something about a knight, robots , fairies etc. that gets my imagination going and makes me want to draw the character. but that's just me, post what ever you like and i will definitely draw it

heres a weird question. you think its a good idea to post my OCs on DeviantArt? i've always stayed away from that place cuz when I think of deviantart, I think of 10 year olds using MS paint and weird fetish art. and if I post there ill probably say to myself "WOW! I have no dignity!"
>>

This weird elitism based on platform is a 4chan meme. Post your work wherever. A gallery is a gallery. The more you have means the more people are exposed to your work. You're free to actively participate in as many or as little communities as you'd like on the platform. Just enjoy yourself.

A tiger monster girl... or boy I designed long ago. Never ended up deciding if its a guy or a chick. If a girl then she'd have the "serious businesswoman" feel, kinda like Varott from Valkyria Chronicles. If a guy then more of a yaoi bait, or Griffith-like, a "beautiful man" sort of thing. No story for her/him tho, which is kinda weird because usually I can write 500 words explaining a single element of my characters, like why he/she wears glasses, has a specific hair color, specific clothes, etc and give them specific plot reasons to be there. But that one time I just designed a tiger monster person. If you want you can come up with a story/personality for this tiger yourself.
>>
Dammit, why creating OCs have to be 10 times harder than drawing fanart?
>>
>>5683685
just dont force it, an oc can just start as a rough idea and it changes over time

let it be organic and natural rather than treating it like a character design job
>>
>>5683700
I'll try anon. Currently trying to make her look TOO much like the character that inspired her.
>>
>>5683685
when creating a character you have to decide how every single element will look, in addition to also trying to make a good looking illustration

with fanart all the design decisions are already done, all you have to do is just recreate them and come up with a pose, colours, shading etc

OP's OC
>>5683581
Deviantart lost a lot of users and has less fetish art, but it still has a community. When it comes to OCs overly designed, saturated, anime characters are what's most popular. People also buy and sell OCs there. Most of the "Adoptables" are just anime chibis or kemonos, and can make a surprisingly good amount of money as high as 100 USD considering that most adoptables use the same templates and are copy paste designs with different color palettes. Furries are also popular to sell, not as a fetish, just as animal or creature designs. People on deviant art mostly like overly designed, flashy things. Especially if they're cutesy. By overly designed I mean VERY much so, A LOT more than some of the most designed characters ITTs.
Just go to deviantart and search oc and you'll see what I mean, most of the designs posted ITT wouldn't be that popular with the deviantart crowd because they aren't as "pretty" and colorful.
>>
>>5683532
Wow, looks great! Really nice and clean. Which OC is yours so I can draw you in return?
>>
>>5683816
>>5683581
I mean, it's not really that bad as long as you don't actively search for the bad things there. It won't hurt to just try it out if you're curious even though the platform is sort of dead (but that can make it comfy). To add on to my earlier post, generally popular OCS are ones that please the feminine appeal. So ikemen, pretty boys, femboys, anime girls, pretty girls, animal designs, tumblr sexy men, tumblresque soft art, sparkly and shiny art, etc. Devianart standards aren't necessarily bad, they're just different from say 4chan and cater to another audience. Simple characters could also be popular but then the rendering and painting style would have to have the attractive appeal the niche prefers. When I said "pretty" I meant bright colors, shiny, glittery, filters, etc.
I think designs like >>5676168 >>5676425 would be well-liked as the former has shoujo influences that appeal to girls and the latter has pretty/cute boys. Just have pretty rendering and you'll receive attention. Foxanon's and homomancer's OCs would probably be really popular not only because they are very skilled and have rendering with wide appeal, but also because their OCs appeal to the character niche in attractiveness. Honestly I think those two could potentially garner huge attention.

depends on what you're posting them for. if it's for roleplay, there are probably still a few groups alive and around for that. if it's to get people invested in your story, you'd probably have better luck posting elsewhere. if it's so you can sell them, then like >>5683816 said, it could be quite lucrative. non-chibi designs made by popular artists can go up to 1500 usd, especially if said artist has a species to build a community around.

>pretty and colourful
to add to this, pastel rainbows are a pretty popular design choice. loud, bright colours are more eye catching but it's harder to make appealing if you want to use all of them.
>>
>>5682477
>>5683390
decided to challenge myself with the colours (making a dark scene) and try new weird things both with colours and filters. I think the colours turned out well, but filters were annoying as always. I can never determine when there's enough or too much of them and when they finally look "good". Same with abstract rim lighting (or whatever it's called, that stripe of vibrant colour at the edge). I can never decide what exact colour the rim should be. Technically speaking its arbitrary as that element is already way abstract, but there's still choices that feel kinda "wrong" and "right". I put vibrant red there and it looked good enough, vibrant green also looked ok, but none of those colours felt like the CORRECT one. And my autism hates situations like these, I need simple explicit answers. Eh, maybe I'll make a thread asking just that and post a collage of all the different versions and see what other anons have to say.

But all in all, I'm glad I decided to draw them and I like the end result.
>>
I tried making a collage out of all the characters posted in this thread. Raw collage had 20k by 15k resolution and was 128mb. My pc wanted to die when I tried opening it. Eventually managed to get it below 4mb so it's postable on 4chan. I think its the first time in my life I was glad jpg compression exists, thanks to it I was able to get a 8k by 6k image below 4mb. Some drawings suffered a lot from it, others managed almost unscathed.

hey anons, what do you think about the idea of making a collage like that whenever a thread nears its bump limit, and then post it in a new thread to show what people drew previously?
>>
>>5684338
It's a cute idea if someone commits to it, but I would suggest the collage is made after the thread hits bump limit. It can be posted in the new thread as a recap of the previous one. This way no deliveries will be lost, even the late ones.
>>
>>5684349
I know this one was early but I wanted to do a test run to see if its even feasible and what issues might arise. I think I could try doing it for a couple threads, but eventually someone would have to pick up the torch as I have a habit of taking week or month long breaks from 4chan.

does anyone know how to quickly download all images in a thread? doing so manually is kinda a pain.

I'm friends with a dude that spent 100s of dollars every month on this and commissions and can confirm that you can absolutely make for a good side hustle should you find the community to establish yourself in ( though being popular/ highly skilled dictates the asking price significantly).

Which twink haha
The purple haired guy (bassist) is the band’s chaotic neutral and is bfs with the brown guy. Brown guy is the drummer/band leader and most career driven of them, so he butts heads all the time with the blonde kid (rhythm guitar). Blonde kid is a druggie who is very talented but very unprofessional/general fuck up. Bad childhood. Emo guy is the lead singer and cousins with blonde kid. Raised like a privileged yuppie, he empathizes too much with his cousin’s bad childhood and enables his poor decisions. Lots of band drama.
Yep that’s the gist of it

>>5684546
sorry, I just wanted to get that collage out of the way while it had all the OCs from this thread, so I rushed it a little
>>
>>5684546
usually it's always tealbrush who is OP. This time tealbrush was unavailable to make the OP so someone else had to do it. Not sure who it was this time though
>>
>>5684551
>>5684553
It's fine and dandy to take turns making the OP but for one thing, it's not a big deal. If you want to use the collage or include it in another thread it won't be the end of the world if it's several threads later. Work from the thread is still work from the thread.
Secondly you should really wait until the thread hits bump limit and gets to like page 8 or something at least because when the thread is still up people can't repost their same reference image of their OC they have to make a new one. So please just make sure not to let over-zealousness get in the way of people enjoying this.

I made the OP drawing but not the thread, not sure why such an old delivery was used instead of something new.
>>
>>5684584
I don't think there needs to be a designated person. I just think making a new thread shouldn't be treated like it's such a huge thing. Making a thread is easy, literally anyone can do it, all you have to do is copy paste the text from the last OP, write the title, and pick an image. I think it's better if people are just chilling and drawing, not focusing on whose art will be in OP and who'll get to do it, and just let someone make a new thread when the current thread is about to 404. If 2 people do it at the same time let the one that was made first stand and the late one be deleted. As long as there's a thread to post in I don't think it should matter.
I just want people not to care that damn much about OP.
I've seen it ruin a good thing in other boards, I don't want to see it happen here.
>>
>>5684565
Personally I don't mind either way. Being an OP isn't that big of a deal in these threads. Last time people got pissed because the OP was an anon who would repost their oc in threads but I don't believe they ever did a delivery despite reposting.
>>5684617

>Last time people got pissed because the OP was an anon who would repost their oc in threads but I don't believe they ever did a delivery
Yeah, this was the one thing I thought about mentioning because I do think that's a shitty thing to do, and having such a person's OC in the OP might encourage newcomers to draw it too. But even then, I would rather people just not care than to risk people starting to care too much to the point it becomes a fight over who controls it.
In the end I just mostly don't want it to become a power struggle and get in the way of the fun of the thread itself.
>>
>>5684338
This is great, but isn't it a lot of work?
>>5684648
A power struggle would be meaningless IMO. People who draw in these threads don't just draw whatever is on the front, they actually go through the thread to look for OCs to draw. So even if someone's OC is OP doesn't mean it will get many deliveries. I agree it's kind of shit behavior as well but in the end most anons will just ignore it. A few newcomers drawing an OC is a shit OP isn't too much of a big deal, if they are drawing it probably just means they like that OC in particular as a design so it doesn't mean much else.
I never really care much, but I understand why some anons were pissed. Definitely shouldn't let something like that to sour the mood though
>>
>>5684676
Oh yeah I don't mean I think drawing the op or not would be the power struggle, I mean people worrying about which image is in OP too much to where they start struggling over who gets to post the OP to "make sure the "wrong" image doesn't get used". I don't want making OP to be the power struggle, and I agree I would rather someone draw an OC they might not get a return on than for people to get so worried about trying to prevent that. I drew a couple no-returns and in the end I didn't care because I got to draw so it's not like those anons are left totally empty-handed.
>>
>>5684690
That's true, I pretty much agree what with you said
>>
>>5684647
heh, thanks. I think archiving and documenting things like that makes a community feel more tangible. Like, you feel you're a part of something when you see your art in a collage like that.
>>5684676
>This is great, but isn't it a lot of work?
A bit, though it's not as much as it may seem. basically:
>download all the images
>dump them into pure ref
>ctrl+alt+left arrow to normalize height or ctrl+alt+right to normalize width
>ctrl+left and ctrl+up a couple times to make all the images fall into a nice grid
>export at 50% resolution
>convert to jpg until it's below 4mb
>profit
I'd say downloading them and sorting like in >>5684504 takes the longest time, everything else is pretty snappy
>>5684610
I found it in an older thread and thought it was perfect as the OP image. Much higher quality than it has any right to be, stylish and with an odd somewhat ironic reference, perfect for 4chan.
