It's time for me to do some clean-up.
Hey, all. Sorry for another silent period with no updates, between school and work, I have lost alot more time than I thought. A few days ago, I have another idea for two upcoming characters I need to sketch and bring in, but then it hit me that these will be characters that will reach past 25 for me. At this point, alot of my characters' purpose is for roleplaying and to place more ideas on them. As I see it, more than half of my characters I do not draw, reference or even use anymore. As a result, I will be creating a couple lists, a list for my major characters, a list for minor characters, and a list for characters I'm dropping. This is something I will not be asking any influence for, if you comment me something for a character you desperately want to keep, I will ignore it. I'm sorry, they began with me, some will end by me.
My major characters are ones who have had the most significance, most backstory, and have been seen most out of the others. These are characters I hold very close and ones I take into heavy consideration when changing something about their looks, qualities, abilities, and such. So far, the major characters are:
Mystery Characters 1 & 2
My minor characters
are ones who have not had much usage or have been addressed much as of late, but have some significance, some sort of backstory, and while not used as much anymore, still has a place in my heart into what goes into them. I'm unsure what I want to do with them, they are:
Spot & Nebula
Kyeo (I still have some things I'd like to do with her)
Jake is the first character besides Kye that I believe has character to him, and while he needs an update, I wanted to keep him. Spot is without a doubt one of my most popular characters, I feel like he has tons of significance and I don't think he deserves to go. Nebula could use a bit of an update or extra information, but I think he goes well alongside Spot. Goldie was my first child character and I don't wish for him to be removed. He will be four years old this year. Apple is one of my favorite [minor] characters so far, as she has a great personality and character to her; she will be kept, but I think a bit of an update is needed. Kyeo I wanted to keep to maintain her status as Kye's sister. I've had an idea for her update, but I need to get to that soon. Oberon is a very unique kind of character look, as I've described, something about him I wanted to keep. Cinnamon is another one of my favorite [minor] characters as well, based on who she is amongst the group, being the genius. Chip is a hyper furry with tons of flare that I haven't been able to work on yet. The two characters I'm unsure about are Calvin and O. Calvin has had much more relevance than O has, seeing as Calvin received three days worth of attention when I figured out how to draw foxes. O is my gate to practice drawing other creatures, in this case dogs, but I haven't been able to do so yet. But what I want to do with them, I'm unsure.
Of course, characters being dropped
are ones where have had very little updates to, very small or none at all since their debut or for an extended amount of time, are ones that have extremely faint significance, little to no backstory, and ones that have not been referenced or brought up at all in roleplays or in general. Again, this is a decision I am making and making alone. Such characters need to have been completely ignored and no character to them to begin with to end up on this list. They are:
As I pass by my gallery, Yoshi and Candi are at the top of my list, as they were the first characters I introduced when I joined. However, as time went on, they became less and less relevant and I barely did anything to them, so they will be going in a new Trash
folder, where all my dropped characters and any art they were given will go. Grape and Oooshi, while children of Kye and Apple, also barely were brought up, one less than the other, to where I figured the best idea is to just get rid of them. Hammer was a Koopa character I once had, but after nothing was done for him, he's just taking up space. Ballie-Yoshie felt like a good idea to me at the time, but I lost interest in him later on the way. Whition was introduced with Spot's latest look now more than three years ago. With no art done for him since then, it's best he were to go. Yoshi-Ultimate was a planned Yoshi-vehicle hybrid that I came up with with a friend, but as nothing was done for him, it's best he were to go too. The only characters I'm disclosing their relevance is Crestie
. Their information will remain redacted.
A new Trash folder will be up sometime where all my dropped characters and their art will go. I'm not sure whether I will want to delete them completely or put them up for adoption, depending if anyone truly wants them. If you do, let me know.
