My life as a Red and Black OC [Vent art] by CrimsonGlow My life as a Red and Black OC [Vent art] by CrimsonGlow
As of late a lot of people have been asking my boyfriend, :icontheeditormlp: when I was going to get my redesign, if I was going to do a redesign, etc. Usually this doesn't really bother me, but then after it kept happening, the memory of every time I met someone, they would comment on my OC's look. Part of me does blame Mad Munchkin's video about R&B ponies, but that's just me being salty. Another part is that I use intensely contrasting colors in my design with very little variation in it.

Its just kinda hurtful to think about at times though because even despite its flaws, I loved the design I ended up with because not only did I do it. I worked hard trying to find the parts that spoke to me and not other people. She's supposed to be polarizing, she's supposed to be hard to look at because she represents a part of myself that I don't like facing but should be said. I've gotten all the comments and hearing about the redesign stuff now just made me a little sad.

I know I must seem like a baby, or like I'm complaining over nothing but I felt like this needed to be said. I take pain staking hours upon days upon months to make my designs perfect. The way I imagine her. I did come up with a redesign for her and while she isn't exactly as I pictured in my head its about as close to getting there without compromising everyone else. 

Its just something I felt needed to get out and this seemed the most appropriate and also funny way to do it.

And the reason why :iconelicitie: is in this is because he HATES my design.

Hope you like this one.

I don't get why people are ticked off your OC is fine I think the red and black painted design constrasts very well.

Man, fuck those people. Who are they to judge? Honestly, it's downright disrespectful to you. It's your OC, not theirs. It's pretty fucking pathetic that just because your OC is red and black and/or not up to their standards, they have to bitch and complain at you to change it to satisfy them. I honestly think your OC looks badass and pretty fitting for the title of "Future Evil Overlord."

There just jealous that they can come up with a reason to justify there statement, so they just go with the same bullshit as always...

It's your design, you don't bitch at other peoples choices!!!

I love your design babe, i'm not saying that because were together, i'm saying that because your open and passionate about why you want to be you... and that's admirable :hug: :heart:

Usually hateer gonna hate, everyone has theor own opinion advise I could say here, since ypur OC is awesome! Like everyone else woth their own OC its what you wanted it look like and you enjoy it. Heck ypur design is unique that it inspired to make an pegasus OC similar to the pito design ( though I tried making it not too obviously similar since after I drew the design I realize I needed two wprking colors to go with it, which ended up being yellow and black). Anyway your OC rocks, just think of those buggers and their comments as rotten tomatoes or water balloons something that can be thrown aside and cleaned off as you go on with your business. (As our Future Evil Overlord)

You should ignore all of the neigh seers about your OC's looks. Your OC is basely you as a pony right? Than its you who decides what you are and what you look like in the MLP world.

I've never really had a problem with R&B, it's a nice music genre~
In all seriousness tho, Crim, I think your oc is perfectly fine. I don't see why you should have to change your entire design just because a few people don't care for it. It's not their oc, it's yours, so why does their approval or input matter in the long run? Sure there's giving constructive criticism but this doesn't exactly seem like helpful advice you should take to heart so much as opinions and borderline demands for change you should take with a grain of salt. If you were to demand them to change their design "because you don't like it" I doubt they'd take it lightly.
I like your oc but more importantly I like the gal behind her, the one who made her in her own image and imagination, with her own vision. That's why I like her because I know she makes you happy as she is. Whether you choose to update her and make changes or not is up to you to decide, she's still your creation, not theirs, and as long as you're happy, I could honestly care less what the peanut gallery has to say.

Red and black OCs can work terrifically, if you've got enough character to make it work, and you most certainly do! :D

Me asking about the redesign is just out of genuine curiosity. I don't care a lot for the negative stigma attached to red and black ocs, since I care about the person behind the oc a lot more. :heart: I do love your design, mama Crimmy, and I am looking forward to see what you have in store.

TBH You’re one of the only R&B’s I like because your OC reminds me of Darth Maul, that and there’s a bit of irony to Crimson.

You ignore them crimson, I think your oc design is great and I know that your redesign will also be great

Hey, red-and-black OCs are the best. We look awesome, we sound awesome, we attract awesome people(and significant others~), and we are just all around awesome because we said "Fuck society's standards, I'mma be an edgy looking horse person" and now look where we are: you've got yourself a sexy look that your coltfriend can't get enough of, and I found a love for the first time in my life. It just goes to show it doesn't matter what color design you make your ponysona out to can still do everything that everyone does. We. Are. Awesome.
