for character development

Hello, what is OC-Training?

OC-Training is a collaborative project focused on developing your original character in 4 months.

Periodic enrollments are open for any reliable artist: beginner, intermediate, advanced, hobbyist or professional.

Our gallery has many subfolders

Members are auto-approved

We are currently in between rounds. Enrollments for the 11th Round will open at the end of September.

Our goals, rules, and guidelines

  • Developing OC’s details and story
  • Creating a collection of visual art-works
  • Having involved audience for the OC

  1. One OC per round.
  2. All artwork must be drawn by you and at least shaded or colored. No WIPs.
  3. Comment on all of your teammate's submissions with at least a sentence.
  4. Provide links to comments in "Correspondence Message" when submitting art.

  • OC of any age, sex, species, genre and fandom welcome. You may feature additional characters in any art-work.
  • You are welcome to comment on all submissions, not only your team.
  • Belated tasks, except first and last, can be submited at anytime. Be sure to finish trades and critiques before the final task, though.
  • If you want to skip any of the trade tasks or critique, note admins in advance before the arrangements are made.
  • Note admins as soon as you start to expect that you may experience any trouble or need to withdraw.

Countdown to Contest Deadline

Sunday, September 1st @ 12:00am

"Draw This Task Again" Contest. See Homecoming journal for details!
:new:  New memes! :D

Hello and welcome all members of OC-training! :party:  We'd like to invite back every author and OC that's gone through the last 10 rounds to join us for a month of features and fun.  

Homecoming has traditionally been an event where we open up a folder and allow any art portraying an OC that graduated (or made it 50%+ through training).  We're still doing that, but this time around we've got a couple fun extras: A contest, and some OC-training related memes! :w00t:

For the Homecoming features, any kind of visual art, literature, crafts and cosplay; whether it be new or old stuff... all is welcome!  Everyone may submit one art of each character.  (If your artwork features multiple characters, it counts for just one of them. So it's possible to show a character more than once.)  Anyone can share art of other member's OCs - they don't just have to be your own. :D  Treat your fellows to some fanart!  
New members are welcome to join us in this event as well!  See a character you like from the previous rounds?  Draw them!  Maybe introduce one of your characters by doing a crossover with a veteran OC. ;)

"Draw This Task Again" Contest

This contest is for the members who participated in any of the last 10 rounds.
Following the simple rules of any draw-this-again meme, take an old task that you submitted to OC-training and redraw it to show off how you have improved.  :star:
Do not entirely re-imagine a task, however - it must still bear an obvious resemblance to the original piece.  Please be sure to link the old art piece in your description.
Multiple entries are allowed.

Deadline: August 31st 2019

Entries will be judged on:
- better execution of anatomy
- improvement of composition
- improvement in use of value and color
- development of personal style
- better communication of the idea behind the artwork

Nearing the end of the contest, we'll be looking for volunteers to help with judging.  Anyone who did not participate in the contest may volunteer to help decide on the winners.

Prize Donators Needed!

We're hoping to spoil our winners with lots of prizes, and need your help to do so. :D  Any offering helps: from points, to features, to art, to critiques!  When we're nearing the end of the contest, we'll sort the prize offerings into three places (with a possible runner-up ). Donating a prize doesn't disqualify you from entering! Please comment or note us if you would like to donate. :aww:  Thank you!

Donated Prizes:
:heart: From :iconithilloth: - a watercolor portrait - a journal feature for the winners
:heart: From :iconbirdhousebirdy: - 1 full body - 2 portraits

OC Adventure Challenge 2, Weekend Break:
OC Adventure Challenge Meme 2: Weekend BreakOC Adventure Challenge Meme 2: Weekend Break
A 'Comedy of Errors' Meme.
This is actually very simple.  Your OC has been invited to stay at a friend's house for the weekend.  The friend lives in a different city/county (state for you Americans :P)/country from you so you can't easily go back for anything you forgot.
This meme consists of a series of everyday challenges for your OC to overcome IN CHARACTER.  Read the text and complete the challenges.  You are free to either draw or write your character's actions for each challenge.
Have fun.
And remember, just because a challenge isn't life threatening, doesn't mean it isn't challenging (or painful)
(With the accent on break).
It was spring, almost summer really, but not quite, when the phone rang.  
“Hey there”.  You recognise the voice immediately.  Who wouldn't recognise an old friend?  “I was just thinking, it's ages since we had a proper catch-up.  So w

Character Meme - Through Another's Eyes:
Character Meme - Through Another's EyesTHROUGH ANOTHER'S EYES – CHARACTER MEME
There are many, many character interview memes out there.  There are short ones, long ones, sexual ones, pretty much every question you could think of has been asked of your OC.  But have you ever thought about what other characters really think about your character?
That's the point of this meme.  Choose a character who is familiar with and interacts a lot with your character and answer the questions from their point of view.  Alternatively, your character could answer the questions about another deviant's OC whom they are familiar with.
01 – What's your name?

02 – Are you male or female?
03 – What age are you?
04 – Describe yourself.
05 – What do you do for a living?
06 – Choose five words that describe your personality
07 – What is their name?

08 - How do you know t

An Opposing Viewpoint: The Antagonist's Meme:
An Opposing Viewpoint: The Antagonist's MemeAN OPPOSING VIEWPOINT:  THE ANTAGONIST'S MEME
I was actually going to call this the villain's meme, but that conjours up the wrong image.  After all, who is a villain from their own point of view?  Which is exactly what this meme is about.  Looking at the villain of your story from their point of view.  Because, let's face it; a two dimensional villain makes for a two dimensional story.
And just remember.  From a law abiding citizen's point of view, some of our greatest heroes were/are actually villains; Robin Hood, Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Forces, Batman, Spiderman.  They might be doing the right thing (from their point of view) but they are breaking the law/opposing the establishment/government.  Isn't that the definition of a criminal?  A villain.  
Food for thought.

Hey, it's in there. XD  I think there's a glitch going on with dA right now because it's not showing more than one page's worth of art on any gallery page :paranoid:

Sweet, can I join. I don't know if I will join the next round because I wasn't able to finish the last round. 
Though I love to keep in touch with the community c:

Anyone can join :) It's not like you have to meet some special prerequisites, other than being interested in OCT. :dummy:

Is this group for artists only or can writers join?
Ithilloth Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2019   General Artist
Hi! Glad to see you interested :)
The focus of the group are visual artworks, since not everyone on dA is proficient in English. Of course stories can accompany the artworks, and majority of the participants are aspiring writers too. Sadly we don't accept Literature submissions alone.
However, we also don't discriminate on your drawing skills level so you can join even if you are a total beginner in art. :nod:
