Things to avoid when making horror ocsThings to avoid when making horror ocs by Hangar16
I give creepypatas a lot of crap around 'ere. But there's a reason why, not just because they're incredibly overplayed and have some of the most irritating of fans, but also because they inspire some of the most cliched, 1-dimensional, dull and poorly developed original character's only the sonic fandom could rival. In fact, I doubt Sonic oc's aren't as overdone as some of the archetypes presented by creepypastas.

I'm a fan of comedy and horror, and hopefully that's reflected in any work of mine. Comedy's probably my forte, because how could you possibly take any character called Madward seriously? Of course a piece of gritty artwork will pop up every now and then, but even then the title and/or description will be horse dribble. That's not to say I don't enjoy the more morbid side of things, in my spare time I enjoy researching pathology, human biology, torture devices and decomposition processes that occur in the human body after death. Quite a few of my oc's are named after real medical conditions and treatments such as Lockjaw and Trepanning. Hopefully I don't come across as too boring, and of course I have a few more hobbies such as playing bass and writing.
