In the journey to create an OC that could be seen as popular as some of the other noteworthy OC's here on DA, I allowed myself to believe the means justified the ends to get that popularity. Well today it just bit me in the ass. An image of my OC was posted by a rather noteworthy and popular artist
that I didn't feel comfortable with, and this was no fault of his own since I had not contacted hm and let him know what I was and wasn't comfortable with. Instead of immediately asking him to remove it I compounded the issue by using my OC's page to Role Play responses that made it look as if I approved when I didn't.
There are a lot of Heroine and Villain OC's in the Damsels in Distress arena, and while I want Blonde Sable :iconblondesable: to be a part of that, I have chosen to portray her as less as a heroine that goes from one trap to another and more of a character that wins more than she loses. I want to be clear here, I see nothing wrong with the way someone plays their OC on DA, I just want to show my OC is a little different light is all.
As a result of all of this I have asked
to remove the image and to remove my character from an already completed Chapter 10 image.
Does that make me a colossal asshole? It pretty much feels that way.
Will this cause me to lose fans and friends here on DA? More than likely but this has already been far more expensive than I ever thought of. To be perfectly honest, if I could go back to the moment I created Blonde Sable I would have second thoughts about it. I let the thoughts of having a popular OC damage something far more valuable than the briefest sparkle of fame ... and that in itself makes me a far more colossal asshole than all the rest of this put together.
To all my fans and to :iconRenderPrentenders: fans I offer my most humble apologies.
