let me just say something... by Karrotcakes let me just say something... by Karrotcakes
I was too lazy to shade this lololol.

:star:WARNING-- SORT OF REALLY LONG RANT ALERT! Bad comments will be hidden. If things get out of hand, I'm going to delete this.:star:

Ever since Celeste came along, I have seen about 5 other characters been made that look a lot like her. These other Shaymin characters have white fur with a different color at the end of the hair. Obviously, they can't think of their own design, so they just go and copy mine. Did you know the "O" in "OC" stands for "original"? Why call it an "original character" if you didn't even make the ORIGINAL design? Has something like this ever happened to you, where your characters' designs were copied?
I'm sorry if I'm overreacting or anything, but it just really makes me mad when they make characters that look too much like others'. If I try to speak up, they will most likely defend themselves and say they didn't copy the design. I KNOW they did, because Celeste was the first Shaymin to have the colortip design, and ALL these people watch me and/or have favorited pictures of Celeste before.
n short, what I'm saying is: don't rip off the design of other people's characters-- it's basically stealing. It's okay if you make a Shaymin with different colored hair tips, but just make the main color of the fur anything BUT white-- I don't really care WHAT you do, just as long as you make it so that it doesn't look too much like Celeste. I have seen one or two cases of this and I'm perfectly fine with it. Thank you for your time. c:

Oh my gosh!! People are doing that to you?! I hope you're reporting them!

Wow. They must really lack any sort of creativity whatsoever.

Don't worry Invaderkari! I'm here to help you anyway I can!
I totally agree!
Ripping off other people's character's designs is basically... well, idea stealing.
It's like when someone just makes a 'twin' of your character and say it's their own thing.
People need to think of their own designs, seriously!
I've had a simerler thing where someone stole my OC and made an account called "~Goggled[myOC]" they also went around on peoples pages asking them to make an avatar with MY CHARACTER on it. :rage:
ugh, i know just how you feel. |c
someone i know keeps copying my style and characters and I've tried to speak up, but they defend them selves and won't listen and its just too much to fight about. i wish people would grow up and make their own ideas.
I'm so sorry this is happening to you. I can't really say i know how you feel but i still know how bad it is to have an idea stolen. I don't think you're overreacting either you're just letting your anger out and that's fine also people who have been doing that deserve to get yelled at and to hear the things you're saying.
Celeste will always be a unique and special little shaymin, because the others are just rip-offs and ugly imitations. I wish there was something i could do to help you out , but I can't think of anything Dx
Oh Celeste we love you! :heart: You so much better than those rip over characters! C= ~hugs~

And I'm sorry that's happening to you, Kari. :hug: Just remember your friends are here to support you.

I've had a new Shaymin character in the back of my mind for awhile, but I'm scared to even draw her and upload the pics because I believe too that people will rip over her design and back story. =( And that'll just tick me off.
Oh my gosh!! People are doing that to you?! I hope you're reporting them!

Wow. They must really lack any sort of creativity whatsoever.

Don't worry Invaderkari! I'm here to help you anyway I can!
