  Ria agrees with all this stuff! I've only gotten fanart once so far, it was a birthday gift from last week but I like just about lost it haha! Of course if I make a design myself I'm like 50% more attached unless the design is like FREAKISHLY awesome or from a rediculously amazing person, not that I could afford them.

Thooough I am waiting for a good dta apoc. QwQ

Hrrmm. I'm too picky. I don't like people drawing fan art of my characters unless they can draw better than me. =u=

Meeeh don't be like that XD
It's hard to get my idol's attention enough for them to draw my characters anyway Cx

I love all my gifts because I rarely get any after all :'D I usually have to work to get them (commission people or art trade with them ;w; )

I'm happier when I get fanart of an OC I made myself, because like you said, they like what I created myself. I mean sure, it's nice to get fanart from others of any of my characters, but there's a bit more spazzing when it's Comet, Blade, or Mei, or any other character I designed myself :3

Agreed! ^^ Because your effort paid off, it's certainly a big reward! 8D

Both for me, especially when they use the character's personality in the image, it makes the whole thing much, much better. Though i always will squee when i see pictures of Sea running around >w< she's my baby

And so is my Alvis XD Your Sea is more popular though because her design changes very little... ;w;
I can't ever settle with Alvis's wolf design XD

Eh, i went with simplistic design for her because i wasn't so good at designing back then. But people really loved her ouo idk why, maybe her background and personality i guess XD

I feel happier if I got fanart of Alvis or Polar (characters I've created myself) because it feels like people actually like MY designs since they are 100% MY character.

For the characters I bought, I might be the one giving them the personality, history and all that but in the end, it's the design that takes up a big chunk of "should I make gift art or not?"

I'm okay with both but I just feel a lot happier when I get fanart of Alvis and Polar... ;w;

I agree completely with you here. ^^ When I get fanart of my 100% own character it feels like more of a success and that the person actually likes what I created. :3

I'm glad you feel the same XD
That's kinda why I don't like buying new characters in Apoc-Brigade, since you can only adopt an Apoc now :'D

I'm bad at designing though, I have to take several shots at it to finally design one character I like XD
You should've noticed from the several "Alvis updates" that keep happening Cx

Yeah...dont get me wrong, I love the apoc designs..tho I dont think of buying one since its not really my design..(sounds so arrogant omg xD)
