    In reply to Monotony I am trying my best to come up with the worst drawback for my best character. And make him seem, how can I say this? Limited.

    So everything you linked is super expensive but I think I've figured out a cheaper solution. I might draw it up later :)

    I'd just like to throw in my two cents on the conversation about animexrwby's character.

    In my opinion, he does not belong as a RWBY fancharacter.  The idea of an ancient grimm shapeshifter is cool, but it also puts the character on an entirely different powerscale than what any other fan reasonably creates, and it steps fairly far outside of canon.  I think it's wonderful to make OCs, even those most people call cringey.  The problem comes when you share it on the level of more reasonable characters, because you're essentially asking those you share it with to accept your character into their headcanon universe for the show.  Since we all share team RWBY in our personal universes, we generally don't share our characters that touch them or their story, so we don't 'crowd' them.  For example, if we included every character from everyone in this thread, I bet weiss would have four significant others and blake would have twelve siblings, among other problems.  My personal solution to this is to give my characters their own bubble of influence, where their story either ends before the canon protagonists or begins after it, or they are just far enough away that their actions never impact each other.


    To those bashing animexrwby, I think their character is unique and cool, and while I understand your reactions, this creativity should be redirected, not shunned.


    To animexrwby and others with similar OCs, try taking some of them and make a story for them in its own unique universe.  Monster traits and immortality are not something you see in RWBY characters, but it would be easy to make a world where this is, if not normal, at least a part of the lore.


    As an example, there's a character ive been working on in a completely original story that i decided to transition to RWBY.  In her home universe, she is a warrior princess who can see the future though a certain kind of magic, and the story relies on the advantages and limitations of that.  When I remade her as a RWBY character, I just took her aesthetic, personality, and motivations and dropped the magic in favor of a reasonable semblance.  To give her magic or keep her status as a princess would require the warping of the canon universe.  As is, she's simply a huntress, one of hundreds or thousands across Remnant.  You can do the reverse of this, take everything that's new about Yin, like the grimm part and the bodyguard of Salem part, and use them as building blocks for the lore of your own universe where he'll fit in fine.


    I don't agree that you made a bad character, but i have to admit that maybe you made a bad RWBY OC.

    In reply to Fwee I don't really appreciate that what I was saying is being labeled as 'bashing'. I tried to be very nice and respectful initially, but felt I wasn't getting serious replies, nor did I feel like my advice was being listened to. This was in part based on personal messages between me and animexrwby that you haven't seen. I also already said to try and learn from other people's OCs in this thread, and essentially presented the same ideas you did, in that a character with powers like that doesn't belong in a RWBY universe. Furthermore, I explicitly stated that what I mentioned was my opinion and that keeping the character the way he is, is totally allowed if so desired. 

    You could have given your advice without involving previous commenters into it, which, since you did, kind of seems like you want to place yourself on a moral pedestal by not being 'mean' about it, or 'shunning creativity', as you call it.

    I still think this is just a gag character that this person is trying to pass off as a genuine attempt.

    According to my notifications, the culprit is one "jamesjamesson." I once caught this posted making a post that said only "test." Since this is the only account responsible and it hasn't been deleted, my money's on a mod testing a new spam filter.

    I apologize for what tone I may have injected or any implications I may have made.  My general tone was in response to what I thought was an increasingly aggressive comment thread, and was intended to encourage moderation.  I also apologize for presenting some of the same ideas that you previously had, I didn't consider how that made it seem like i was claiming ownership of them and not lending support to them.


    And more generally, what is it with this forum and bots?  It seems small enough that I wouldn't think it worth the effort, but when I last checked in a while ago, most pages were full of bot posts.

    Huh.


    Okay.


    Please stop spamming the thread with posts that get deleted two seconds later.


    Also there are a lot of problems regarding the actual contents of that post that I'll let someone else deal with.

    Okay, so ignore my really gross mirror (my sister decided to wipe mascara and eyeliner all over it ages ago and it never came off, I'm gonna get a new one someday when I have money again XD) and dusty fan (that thing gets dusty like a month after I clean it, I hate having an old, wooden house XD), but I bought a couple of things from Party City for my Steampunk Sun cosplay, and I was wondering what you guys think.

    I still need to get a monkey tail and I'm waiting for my Prompto wig to dry so I can restyle it into Sun's hairstyle, and I'm thinking of adding a few things to the pants, like maybe bandages or something at the tops of the boots just to keep Sun's bandaged legs, but other than that I think this is a good-ish start? I spent almost 80 bucks on the tunic, cloak, and shoulder pad, so I intend to use them all XD

    Uncles- 1

    Personality-cheerful, happy, loud, curious , carefree and funny

    Combat clothes- White with dark green cross shape right in the middle of the shirt , black jeans , silver steeled toed shoes ,  the shirt has bulletproof alike chest plate only on the right side though . ( meaning he half armored man that like surprises his opponents ) 

    Bio- Mason Lee Armstrong his parents are both huntress and hunter . So Mason learned hand to hand, swordmenship , other stuff from his parents at age 7 . His father who happens to be fighter and scientist taught Mason few things like  saying " it okay to have strength but having brains will help you survive in battle " which is true.  His mother taught him how to use dusts and move silently though the night and day.

    He have 3 older brother and 1 older sister so he basically youngest in the family. His sister is scientist , his first older brother is hunter , 2 older brother is school teacher , 3 oldest brother happens to be soldier under Ironwood command.

    His older sister happen to be 4 oldest.

    Mason loves his family . Mostly  his mother and sister because he hardly see them because he either training or off with his dad learn scientific things. Mason brothers hardly talk to Mason since they busy but when they do talk to Mason it either argument or teasing Mason to point it actually hurts Mason feelings. 

    Mason loves learning expect doing math even though it part of science. Mason maybe Faunus so he get lot of hate from humans but that doesn't stop him for doing things he love. He loves humanity and he swore to his mother when they were training to stop white fang even if it kills him.  His mother didn't like that but in Armstrong Family  they were known to be most stubborn people and once you put your mind to it nobody can't change that.

    So his mother give him lesson how to stand against strong opponent like Adam who the leader of white fang a move that can only work once but it risk move. Once Mason mother taught him that move she made him swore never to use it until it really necessary Mason agreed to it. 

    Mason was in house that was full of love , drama, emotional bonds it was indeed great family however once Mason gotten older he decide to enter beacon to fight the Grimm and find a way to stop white fang. That his goal to stop white fang.

    I'm gonna try to work up the motivation to finally finish the bio for Azurite Colpa! I'm really looking forward to being able to post it, and honestly, in terms of RWBY OCs that I'm most proud of, Azurite's second only to Nephrite (and I think I've made it clear by now that I can't shut up about that drama king even if I wanted too). The tricky part is probably going to be figuring out his semblance. He's one of the only RWBY OCs I have that isn't really a fighter (he knows a little bit about fighting since he works with people that are fighters, and has watched them train before, so he's picked up on a few things), so I don't need to worry too much about figuring out what to put down for the weapons/fighting style section, but I imagine he does have his aura unlocked, and his semblance, but since he's not really a fighter, I can't rely on my usual trick of "what kind of semblance would this OC use with their fighting style". Why must this tsundere fashion designer be so difficult?

    I have always wanted to do this!

    Name: Charles Shire (Inspired by the Chesire Cat from Alice in Wonderland)

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: African American. Has black hair with a pink streak on the right side. Primary colors are yellow and beige. Seen sporting combat boots, workout gloves, cargo shorts, a sleeveless hoodie, and occasionally his reading glasses.

    Weapon of Choice: Charles is a mixture of grace and discipline so he has an M16 rifle that transforms into a Hiraikotsu {Giant Boomerang) that he can set on automatic mode and throw as a projectile/machine gun.

    Personality: On the surface Charles is very reserved and impatient towards any form of ignorance, but he actually has a rather sassy side and is considered to be one of the goofiest people in his youth. He is also very blunt and doesn't sugar code anything to people; not because he's rude, but because he values honesty.

    Skills: He uses his natural sense of rhythm learn various styles of fighting or personality traits.

    Aura Semblance: The ability to become intangible for short periods of time, passing through objects as well as people. 

    History: Growing up outside the kingdoms and only surviving through his semblance and wit Charles was scrapping together loose change and only living on rice as that is what his family could provide. A bounty hunter sees him use his semblance to get away stealing groceries and tracks him back to his place. Said bounty hunter also saw him give some food to a homeless family and convinces him to get paid for his services and semblance rather than just getting by. Eventually, he is able to gain enough money to form his weapon making him a considerable threat to anyone he has a target for. Flash forward to between Volumes 4 and 5 and Jacques, Weiss' father, has hired him to bring her back in order for her not to tarnish the Schnee name. This is where he decides should he go in guns blazing and tug at their heart strings and slowly wear them down from the inside to get his hefty bounty.

    Likes: Food (Especially cheese and ice cream), singing, dancing (he has a natural talent for), poetry, and theatre.

    Dislikes: Loud noises, heights( fear of falling), being in crowds, and pork (deathly allergic)


    Hopefully he could be an actual character in the future. Thanks for posting this discussion!

    Another way to think about semblances (one that I usually use) is that since a semblance is an extension of the soul, you can think about the character's strongest desire. An example of my own I can think of is a nameless orphan character (yes they still have no name) viewed by others as a jinx because anytime they try to get close to someone, that person gets hurt. This character's semblance absorbs the physical pain of those they are linked to. This character essentially takes someone else's pain as their own.

    I'm so glad the new episode made me tolerate Blake again. She actually finally seems to be getting herself under control. I still don't like her enough to ship her with anyone anymore, though, we'll see how she progresses throughout the volume :P


    Also @Malochroma I think I'm gonna do away with the newsboy, I think it makes me absolutely unrecognizable as Sun. And I'm gonna replace the gloves with armguards once I get them, these are just a placeholder until then. They look waaaay too similar to Jaune's XD


    20171014_143222.jpg


    Pants are also placeholder until I get the ones I ordered that are expected to arrive in November. Still gotta get a monkey tail, can you believe none of the Halloween shops in my area have monkey tails?!
