Hey guys ! Welcome to the second part of my second mini contest, which the first theme was focused on Allegra, an OC of mine; the theme today, is “What if Allegra was a villain all along??” (whoa that’s very original lmao)You’ll have to include Allegra in your picture, and also Scarlette (it’s not obligatory, but hey, she was betrayed by Allegra after all!). The rest is up to you, you can draw litterally anything haha!

With all of these guides regarding how not to write an OC, some of which even I've written, there's a lot of people complaining that they're too scared of messing up and being dubbed a Sue/Stu or people thinking their stories are terrible. Here's a post that ought to make you feel better about the writing proccess.
Yes, you CAN write Original Characters!
Below are a list of common complaints people have in the writing process that leads them to either never releasing their stories or feel too scared to work on them.
Fear #1: My story must be perfect before I release it!
Good News: No it doesn't! In fact, you can't reach perfect in the same way you can't reach infinite: you can still develop huge, HUGE numbers, but you'll never even get close to infinite. If you wait until it's perfect, it'll never be released: release it with its warts and all, and you can use your mistakes
Spaztique's Guide to Making a Fan SeriesSince 2005, I've been cranking out series after series to either decent to good to great reviews, from Garry's Mod (Loveless City, Wasteland, Hollowed Memories, Spazterpeice Theatre) to Walfas (Ao Usagi Tribute Show, Walfas Satire).

Before you even think to begin, look for the most popular and prolific series in the community you're working in, and then look for the worst series. Compare what the good ones get right and where the bad ones go wrong. Note what passes for good production quality, what's a mistake,
