Artist: Hey, here’s my new OC! Have a detailed visual reference and 2500 words of meticulously plotted backstory!
Artist: *literally never draws them again*
artist: *posts art of OC*
you guys do know you can’t get people invested in your ocs in a single post, right
Not to mention the fact that there are, you know, TAGS for established characters already. Tags that people can and do search though.
Unless your OC is based in an established universe, you are at a significant disadvantage for people being able to find your art.
(Although I don’t entirely agree with not being able to get people invested in an OC in a single post. It’s just harder.)
