Anti-Fake Recolor Stamp by Sycotei-B Anti-Fake Recolor Stamp by Sycotei-B
First off, I apologize for the atrocity in this stamp, but it's part of my point. What do I mean by "Fake Recolor"? Well, I've noticed that there are more Sonic recolors that weren't made to be passed off as actual OCs, they were made to spite actual recolors, all OCs in general or just to get attention. These recolors edited official Sonic art and are given with cliche', exaggerated, Mary-Sue names and bios in the description and repeating how original they are (it's so obvious, you can read the sarcasm in it). I call these "OCs" Fake Recolors. I've found that there are actually more of these fake recolors than actual recolors, which is sad. The people who make them think it's funny, but i think it's just pathetic and immature. It's just reinforcing a negative stereotype that all FCs are recolors (there are people who actually think that), like saying that all blonde people are dumb or all Muslims are terrorists (niether are true of course). So if you think it's funny to make fake recolor, you should consider how it makes you look.

I do not claim ownership of the image used in this stamp

I can understand a person making one out boredom or lack of art skills. Some people are creative in their heads but can't translate it to paper. Making them for fun is fine. I used too. But worked on my art skills. A recolor should never be taken seriuosly.

Finally, I've wanted someone to make a stamp like this! I understand that sometimes they're made to draw attention to poor Mary-Sues (like Akai Dalia, ba-dum-tish), but it is my firm belief that there are more Parody-Sues than actual Mary-Sues, reinforcing the stereotype and ensuring it to be impossible to help others improve their characters because nothing's really genuine anymore.

I seriously don't know people think it's okay to recolor. It's not okay. Why? Because, it's plain our stealing, unoriginal and immature. Plus if you recolor you could get caught and get in serious trouble for it! Also it's against devinatART policy to post recolors. But the most recolors I have seen is MLP and the Sonic series. And allot are Mary-sues and terrible terrible back-stories. If whoever is reading this comment and does not know what a "Mary-Sue" or a  "Gary-Stu" is a character that has now flaws, is rare and everybody loves them. And has tragic past stories. And everybody loves them.Also recoloring IS NOT ART. People there's a thing called Creativity. USE IT.

...There's a reason why this site is called DeviantART.  People recolor for fun, not for attention.

Keep in mind that recolouring is against DeviantART's rules. Whether they do it for fun or not, they will get into trouble one way or another.

I enjoy making fake recolorings. Just look at Bluey Baklava.

I don't think I'm superior for doing it, though. I'm just trying to be funny.

THANK YOU FOR THIS STAMP! Gosh. I just think it's sad that, when someone posts a serious recolor, everyone goes like "this looks horrible, I will report you, stop stealing you stupid biach that's against the rules you should die why dont you learn how to draw". Hating everywhere. And when someone posts a parody, everyone goes like "zumg this is so kawaii best thing i have ever seen", support everywhere.
FAKE recolors are just AS MUCH against the rules. This bugs me so, sooooo much. But of course, everyone praises them and they never got reported or deleted by the staff. Ever.

I had an argument with another deviant about that, one or two weeks ago. Telling me how stupid I am and that I should shut up because the law allowes parodies.
Wut. It's still stolen, and STILL not allowed on dA. The law allowes porn too.
Some people....

Yeah, it's really messed up, i think they know that the "artist" didn't intend to actually steal the character.

Well, they should know that there's a difference between making a parody and just bashing something.

Thanks for favin'

When you say OC you mean by Official characters or original character?

I think generally all sonic fan characters are not considered "Original Characters" as all of them have designs and universes based off of the Sonic universe, which makes them Fan characters instead.

However I do agree that the majority of the Sonic fan characters lack the efficient creativity in them. I would think that many of them were created by children or young teenagers, who are still adapting to the new creativity/credibility of fanfiction.

Ugh, I hate when people do that. And worse of all, some of those get popular! I mean seriously? I'm always seeing a Mary Sue somewhere, mostly on kid art websites like Hatena. I may not be the most original, but at least I put actually effort and time on my OCs.
And if I need help creating them, I 'll simply ask a friend. :teamwork:

well, what i'm talking about is when people take characters (they're usually official characters) and just change the color and give them names like "Mary-Sue the Hedgehog" or "Invincible the Fox" and give them exhagerated bios, they do it just to troll fan-characters and their owners.

I only did this one time directly w/ my friends dreadym8 & Negex, after their FCs became more and more Sue-like, jokingly, and ironically enough, later on we agreed a character I was starting to make would be ok being the creator-god of our Heaven&Hell Sonic Fan-verse lol

I don't disagree with it, but you should know better then me that people who just do things to call atention won't change if they keep getting atention, The problem is not the mary sue trolls alone, but the people who feed them.
