Nobody understands the essence of what makes something badass like a fifteen-year-old. It’s the purest form of badass understanding. Have you ever seen a fifteen-year-old designing a character? They’re fuckin badass as hell. Fearlessly badass. Unfalteringly. They know what they want and they go for it. Millions of spikes. Leather trenchcoats. Tinted shades. Boss.

So why do people find their OCs from age fifteen so humiliating to contemplate then?  :/

The depressing truth is that people find their OCs from age fifteen humiliating because we’re trained to do so. We’re constantly bombarded with the idea that creating characters freely and without limits is somehow innately cringey and, in a lot of cases, people get mocked for it if not outright harassed or insulted. I look at my OCs from when I was fifteen and yeah, their designs are a little goofy, but holy shit! I was so much more creative in some ways, and willing to take risks in character design that I’m still trying to re-learn how to do now!

Take me back to the days where I could draw robot catgirls with wings and a million swords because you know what? Fuck the very notion of “cringiness”. I’m here to have fun and me and my badass reploid OCs are gonna do just that.

Blizzard sold jillions of copies of games whose every character design is all about hitting that “cringy” limit.

Actually? This is excellent advice.

Fuck cringy.

Design your characters like they’re gonna be getting alternate skins in Heroes of the Storm.

I refuse to be ashamed of my tyrannical half dragon space pirate queen Kuthgar the merciless. She was fucking awesome.
