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 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.

It's in DeviantART's Terms and Conditions, as far as I know.

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.
