So I find it interesting how Making a Sonic Character seems to be a rite of passage for many young creative types. Take a well existing art style, and emulate it while making your own character.

But when you look at the characters, they always lack something. To me Their eyes are drawn wrong, usually. Mainly it's what they're looking at. They're never looking at the audience, they never seem to really be looking at something, but instead zone off to an unseen somewhere. They lack a known focus. Sure they were made to be fan creations in this established world, but they have not focus beyond that. They aren't real, they have no "soul"...Like the artist him/herself at this moment. They exist, they can draw, but at this moment they have no "artistic soul" They're just looking to other places, other then their audience. Once they find their purpose can their characters evolve from being Sonic rip offs and really start looking at the audience.

What do you think?

What does a "Theditor" Do? Well it's more then just Editing.

It's Editing, but adding a life of its own in the process. If I take an original piece, and then change something about it, My goal is to give it its own legs to run on. This isn't always possible and sometimes when compared to this definition, I fall to being just an editor. But I try, in every piece of art that I post, that it is no simple sketch. No simple drawing I scanned in. It is a piece I breathed life into through my digital pen. To you I'm just another artist, on DeviantArt of all places, but to my art, I will not create it without it being able to go on without my help.
