I added the remaining undrawn ones and removed OVER HALF characters from the list yesterday (the number went from 111 to 43 lmao) I'm not really abandoning the other ones just.... shelving them... so I don't have to feel guilty about not caring to draw them

The remaining are the ones I still have interest in drawing. these drawings are still old for the most part and lots of them need minor updating for their designs. it feels good to do this actually, it feels like shedding some commitment to my past self that I didn't realize had been bothering me. I can draw whatever I want and do whatever I want with my characters (so thats a good thing about Giving Up On Art is that now I can start to feel ok to do whatever I want to my ocs as I rightfully should, I can draw AUs and change their features and do whatEVER I want if I just accept that I'll likely never do anything final with these guys and stop holding out like I am someday. I will be ok to post abot stories for this reason too. I cared so much about ~spoiling~ my hypothetical future readers for stories I have such a low likelihood of ever actually making lol)

all OCs currently supported shown under the cuts in no particular order divided into 2 categories:

yeah once years ago I was talking to a friend about OCs and she had just finished a comic about some of them and told me she regularly "kills off" characters once she is done making their stories and I was so ???? i didnt know how anyone could POSSIBLY let go of it but I think I understand the feeling now. i don't want to feel guilty for old characters (especially when i clearly had WAY too many characters to realistically pay attention to them all lol) so I just took a breath and screamed THE WORL IS ME OYSTAH and deleted half the stuff from my list lol. i will be accepting that i keep going, my tastes & talents change and i can truly exercise that my ocs are mine if i let them change too, whether that means shelving them now or picking them back up later if i have something new for them, it's really all up to me because they're a part of me.

OMG I CANT IMAGINE THAT! ive definitely gotten rid of some just by shifting interests and such, but even ones im not attached to actively.... their designs and feelings are still significant to me.. kind of like songs or something. i guess thats definitely a good way to place it bc a lot of them are very music tied and if i still care about the visuals/music then i still care about the character it seems.
have you tried redesigning characters? that's fun for me, keeps shit current! its fun to experiment with different looks and maintain a feel too.

i "redesign" characters but it's more like altering small details to make them look correct if my drawing style has changed. suzu has gone through several such redesigns just adjusting the way i draw his fuckass hairstyle (it's getting to be about time for that again I think lol)

aaahahah it won't be too drastic, he'll still have curtains and spiky forever probably. I may just move his part sideways a bit

Rose was actually completely redesigned in looks AND personality, I will post some before/afters sometime
