(work in progress area)
Welcome to the place where all my characters & world are. I´m able to form entire environments, stories & people in my head.. which is where most of my world is. In my head. But I also love to draw and write my world down.
= written but off-site (Toyhou.se)
= on-site profile.
no star = Toyhou.se + not written
The following don´t have any form of visible content
Will I ever illustrate them? No clue. so many...
- Max & Anna
- Fred & Anna
- Mr. Morthby (Peter)
- Mrs. Nanny (Nancy)
- Shadow Dragons
Questions and Answers!
From what I can remember It all started from watching series as a kid. I always made different stories in my head with the characters in cartoon shows & how they could have a different story and ending than shown on TV. Because often I disliked the ending or some aspects of it. From there I started to develop my very own "characters" that doesn´t exist in that show. And from there is developed more and more into something unique, rather than existing cartoon characters & universes. However, I didn´t knew what an "OC" was back then. I started to first get into the whole online and OC community and it´s meaning back in 2013.
In that time (2013) I started to draw Pikachu characters and feral dogs which I used as OCs publicly. And not ever did I showcase my very first, private "Ocs" (which you can see here now). I simply didn´t viewed them as such and felt insecure about sharing some secret world I´ve keept only for myself for such a long time. But since I did, I love them even more. And not only that but my artistic skills also heavily improved since then. Such as drawing humans and anthro anatomy.
Absolutely! You can! If you want to show me what you did, you can link to it in my guestbook, down in the comments here on this page, or simply contact me via email. You can also just doodle them privately, I have no problem with that.
- Please don't do any NSFW art without asking.
- I always appreciate when characters are drawn with their personality. e.g. don't make a cute smiling chibi of villains/monsters generally less cute characters etc.
It´s Lui, and Rebecka is very close behind. These two were the start of my whole universe and expanded from there. I also draw them both the most. Unlike my other characters, they also have slighly fleshed out dragon forms. (meaning behind them and facts). My other characters have a meaning behind their abilities as well, but to be honest I´m often just too lazy to actually write all this down.
No, Never! Even my side characters are very dear to me and I have a very long and personal connection to very single one, even if I don´t use one or two for a bit. Selling them would feel like as if I would sell my child (if I had one lol)
I designed every single one. On my Website here, I also only use artwork I have done. Not other peoples work. But yes, they have art done by other people as well. Maybe I'll add a section for this in the future. But you can view all art on my toyhouse. Link
If you followed me only from around 2014 to 2019 you probably don't know any of these characters I have now. That's because I just started illustrating them in late 2019 and decided to fully switch over to using them as my only public characters. The characters itself however aren't new at all. Well not to me, but to the public eye. So.. now where are your other characters? Privated. Or Sold. The ones which I still have are Aurora, FiFi and Hyria. Anyone else is in the process of selling or already gone. I have no use for them and no interest in keeping random designs. Aurora, Hyria and FiFi are an excepion. I keep them because of memories. And because I have a 600€ artdoll of Aurora. Definitely not going to get rid of it lol. And while I dont use them anymore, I still like them + they were all 3 connected with each other and I actually did some sort of story around them in the past.
info dump :)
I don't use the term "furry" for my animal characters. It feels very unfitting for their world & the characters don't label themselves as furries either, it's not even a thing there. The term "anthropomorphic" is used! Or just "people" ( I don't mind it too much if other people call them that, but I still prefer "anthro") + I'm not a furry and it generally feels a little out of place to me.
60% of my ocs still have no visible content nor are displayed anywhere. The main reason for this is that I never treated them as "OC's" or something I wanted to write/draw. All in my head y'know
Not a single character has an "ending". One reason why I barely ever write detailed stories about them. I rather do a ton of scenarios about them aka daydreaming. The basics however, repeat. I don't make them different from ground up. You can kinda imagine it that way: you are you, but your life always goes into slighly different directions. For some a lot, for others not at all. I do that cuz it's fun, I can always reset stuff, nobody has to die forever. Well, unless I don't really have use for a character anymore. But this is very rare. And is also a reason why a ton of my characters fit into many things too. jobs, likes, dislikes, life sittuations and so on. I don't really use my ocs for a "story that has an ending and that's it then, finished".
I hate writting. I suck at it. If you read a sentece where I say "....stories about them" I'm primarily talking about dreaming.
I always thought for a very long time that my daydreaming abilities are special and that I'm sick, weird or not right in the head. Especially because nobody in my life ever did or had anything similar to it. And even today to some degree I feel like it is some kind of special weird talent. Also because the images in my head are extremely detailed and clear. Environments, characters, faces are clear and they always are. Just like I know this not exisitng world and the people very very well. I might not see how other people experience it, but I know today because of online communities, I'm not alone with this and that feels very nice.
I'm into modern day world settings + fantasy (In my case flying islands above the village). Everything else is pretty much ouf of my interest field.
I draw my ocs pretty much alllll the time. It's the only thing I enjoy besides commissions. And I generally only draw what I enjoy, I don't draw trendy shit.
Thinking about making short stories. In comic form perhaps. Of silly sittuations'n all.
