I feel like I've always had waaay too many OCs and the number only keeps getting bigger bc I make them based on aesthetics I want to internalize, or something, so I end up having lots of shallow OCs that fit certain specific needs instead of fewer, more-deeply developed ones. There are some I find I can't part with but many I very rarely draw or think about. there are some I would feel mostly safe just shelving and not supporting anymore (supporting as in... some old piece of software that you stop making updates for and decide to forget exists. my ocs are like software products to me apparently, this metaphor makes too much sense lol) so I think I will do that. Some are purely aesthetic character designs that I just enjoy drawing sometimes because I'm pleased with the designs. I should maybe make a move to separate them from ocs that actually have story framework and personality. bc EVERYTHING HAS TO BE CATEGORIZED CORRECTLY OR I AM UNCOMFORTABLE.

which means I need to edit down that Chibi OCs list I've been keeping for years & years; I maintain it cause it's super useful but I have to force myself to draw in an old drawing style to keep them all matching lol. But it really is worth it to have a simple ref for their designs all in one place in case I need it or to show people. It's just kind of a bummer about the dated chibi style thing but I can't really change it, it works good for the purposes I need it for

for reference, by last count I had over 100 ocs on my list

I haven't made it all the way to 100 yet, but I definitely get where you're coming from. I've made 28 in (roughly) the last year and a half, and my problem is that every single one of them is entirely fleshed out. I spend so much time obsessing over the creation that I have trouble actually following through with writing about them in full. Out of the four novels I've started, none are finished u___u

yeah, it would be nice to be able to hyperfocus on like 1 set of characters and get it done Really Good & Complete without getting distracted. At least you aren't at risk of running out of ideas lol
