So this is has come up on YouTube again and if you know anything about me I get inspiration from a lot of things. You see it in my art a lot and even in my art. I'll give you 8 of examples of my Oc's that were inspired by others:

1. Lady Mayhem was inspired by Lady Chaos from Silver Surfer Animated Series and Lady in Grey from Spy vs. Spy.
2. Vesna was inspired by Starfire from the Teen Titans.
3. Chase Strange was inspired by a man in a sailor suit in the Dexter's Lab episode GoldenDiskette who said: Don't be silly it's just a man's head on a robot's body."
4. Chase's counter part Jack Brown was inspired by Jack O' Lantern from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.
5. Para-Norma/ Norma Waffle was inspired by a childhood dream I had back when I was 6.
6. Robert Dare was inspired by a false memory of a Back to The Future Ride I had back in 2004. I made the character a year later in 2005.
7. Ooyu was inspired by Blackfire.
8. Lady Surprise was inspired by Lady August believe it or not so Lady Surprise is the counterpart. 

That being said I think that it's okay to be inspired. It's not everyday I see a character that's so good that they inspire me but when I do get inspired I race like a rocket and run with it. Aside from that there's getting inspired and then there is being a copy cat. I'll admit I've been guilty of this in the past and I am being careful not to do this in the future and I am going into animation. Well an example of being a copy cat is this video made my Mundane Matt on YouTube and I think he explains this better than me. Here it is: 

  • Mood: Tired
