and you know what's funny? I used to have one. I thought she was THE SHIT! yeah, no, she was terrible just like the others.
it's not that I've never seen a sonic OC that was very well drawn and not a shitty recolor, it's that their designs are so... unoriginal. they're generic and are all similar to each other. it doesn't matter how many defining characteristics they have, they're just... it kinda makes you cringe and just move on through whatever pictures you were looking at. it makes you go, "oh not another one..." and it makes their creators think that they're all stealing designs from each other because they are all so generic. and you know, it's the same with PPG OCs.
anyway, I'm not saying stop making sonic OCs, and I am not saying there aren't amazing artists that draw sonic characters really well, I am just saying what a lot of us are probably thinking, but since we're not allowed to be honest in this day and age, people are afraid to say it. welp, I am expressing my opinion, and if someone wants to make a mountain out of a molehill, go ahead and try. you may find the results unsatisfactory.
and we ALL have this thought about different fandoms, don't deny it. but insulting a fandom is not insulting the people involved, so take it with a grain of salt.
