Kirsten (left) and Chewy (right) are my idea of Sonic OC. (Before ANYONE PUTS HATE COMMENTS: Chewy is NOT a "rip off" of Sonichu. If you read more, you will understand why. ALSO: I actually recently learned of "Sonichu" from a video on Youtube by "Courtney (Project SNT)" when she tried to redrew him.)
Here's some basic info about them:
~ Kirsten and Chewy are twins (14 years old)
~ They don't have any special talents like all the other sonic characters, but they are both really into sports (favorite being Soccer.) As a result: they are both fast and can kick really well. (I guess you can say their fighting style is Kicks and they use their arms mainly for blocking direct attacks.)
~ Chewy is faster the Kirsten, while Kirsten's kick is more powerful.
They BOTH Like: Sports, being together, hanging with sonic and friends
They BOTH dislike: Going into battle without the other, how Amy is far too obsessed with sonic, when someone is rude to them or makes fun of them to the point of disrespect
Kirsten likes: Shadow, Night Time
Kirsten dislikes: Thunder Storms, how intense Chewy and Amy can get when they talk about soinc
Chewy likes: Sonic, Day Time
Chewy dislikes: Water, how Kirsten likes going outside during the middle of the night
Basic Back Story (Because I am actually still working on a small amount...):
Born as twins, these two have always been very close and extremely similar in what they do and personality. They were abandoned when they were born, so who their true parents are... is considered unknown. Until Cream's mom found them, their past is a complete mystery!
As the two grew up, one thing really bothered them: all their friends had a natural talent for something. Sonic was fast, Tails and cream could fly, Knuckles could win any fist fight, and Amy was strong enough to use a very heavy hammer at a young age. They sometimes felt like everyone didn't see them as friends. For a very long time, the two tried to see if they had a natural talent or their own, but they never found anything.
The day they started playing soccer, the two immediately scored at least 3 goals each per game. Realizing how good they were, they decided to not join the team the next year (to be fair) and took up kick boxing, self defense and to run a long distance every day. Not too much later, the two finally felt like they were "equals" with everyone... and they were finally able to put up a good fight with Dr. Eggman... as a team.
(I know it wasn't much of a back story, but I really wanted to stay away from average idea you see in most back stories... plus having to work hard to gain a talent instead of being naturally born with one... can really show growth in a character!)
~ I really love how Ash Ketchum looks in the Pokemon: Sun and Moon anime... I just love the shirt! I feel the general design works with their personality.)
~ I can easily see Kirsten is basically Cream with a different outfit. I tried to avoid that, but I just felt like any other color combination... just didn't work. Trust me, I tried many.
~ I gave Chewy a bit more detail then Kirsten, because I didn't want them looking FAR too alike... plus Kirsten was drawn to be a bit more like my actual self. (I am basic)
~ Chewy is NOT a mix of Pikachu and Cream. Chewy is a pure sonic character that has the coloring of a Pikachu.
Name and Personality/Trait Notes:
~ Kirsten is my actual name. I gave Kirsten the Blue outfit because that's my favorite color and brown eyes because... that's my eye color.
~ Chewy is more or less a nickname I gave myself when thought of changing my name to PikaChewyChipsAhoy on the web. the idea steamed from me liking pokemon and the fact that I like Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies!
~ I knew from the start that I wanted my characters to not have any natural talents, but to work hard to achieve a talent. I also wanted one to be a but better at one then the other. Since Chewy partly came from the idea of Pikachu to begin with, I decided to let her be a bit faster regarding speed. Note that the speed isn't SONIC SPEED, but faster then Kirsten.
~ I consitered having Kirsten be good with her hands, but I ended up liking the idea that both talents should come from the same area. In this case, the legs/feet. It works better with the whole "they are twins" theme.
Things I want people to get in their head before they start commenting:
~ I seriously want people to understand I planned out Chewy a bit before I even knew what Sonichu even was. I am actually not anywhere huge on the Sonic community. I played Mario and Pokemon most of my life... I actually only own 4 sonic games (Sonic Heros, Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations, Sonic Forces) the ONLY game I played seriously-ish was Sonic Forces. I dropped Sonic Colors after a day and gave up in Sonic Generations at some point... don't even remember when. My sister owned Sonic Heros. She would play that while I played stuff like Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
Extra Notes that don't fit anywhere else:
~ I said that they were abandoned when they were born, but I will say I chose their birthday to be May 30th (after my own)
Anyway, I hope you liked this. I already know the Sonic OC community is... more on the hateful side. Like it or not is up to you. Your opinion is your opinion... and I respect that! Just try to leave the pure hate out of any comments, ok?
Thank you for looking at my first actual drawn out character! (I don't specialize in animals at ALL. To be honest, drawing anime-style people is what I'm good at. It took a very long time for me to like how it turned out somewhat... that's just how bad I am at drawing anything BUT anime-style people! I'll draw them again another day... but for now, on to the next idea! (...whatever that is.)
