!!! Definately! And the funny thing is, I didn't even realise ^_^ So when I write, I basically discover things about myself that I didn't even know existed within me! Thanks for making this stamp shows other people put themselves into their work too!
In some cases I do agree to this but I create OCs (mainly in my novel series I am making) based on people that I know (friends, enemies, family, etc.)... kind of like how I see them in my own eyes... Though I can relate to this based on my main OC, Fireseeker.
I feel the same way. Each character I create either has a piece of me or an aspect I'd loved to express or at least have.
Since I really don't make OC's for fan art I create the character for stories I'd love to share with others.
Though if one of them landing in a fanfic,(which would be incredible rare since I don't really write fan fics) they'd be more of an outside observer either watching the main canon character do their thing or trying their hardest to get back to their own world; and as a side note I don't ship any of my OC's with canon characters because I don't have an interest in that, plus that fact there's a lot of potential to make an good off the wall story without some much shipping.
Again, not true for me... I use the Enneagram personality typing system. I start writing and once I have a feel for the character I figure out which type they want to be and then develop them more from there, continually doing writing exercises to let them interact with different situations to get the hang of their character and how they behave. I'm a very easygoing, quiet, creative, and peaceful person. I am unobtrusive and can almost get pushed around a little bit because I don't like to cause contention. I'd rather stay home and relax or stay with one close person than go out. But let's take Adrian, for example... He's nothing like me. He's confrontational, opinionated, blunt, sarcastic at others' expense, unafraid (so he likes to think), and a little bit wild. I adore him, but I can't think of anything in me that was transferred to him... Unless something between us happens to be the same which would make sense because you usually have some kind of similarities with almost anyone. Anyway, yeah. We're all different and do things differently, which makes everything more interesting
"I made my OCs as real as real as they can be. I can help them with any need they needed, wanting them to experience the outside world and learn the real true meaning of reality. I want them to learn about the truth of this world as well as I do...do well, Cupid Gangsters."
-Astro(me) (Look at the icon Nami and imagine her saying this sentence.)
It seems more like I have a part of each original character. Like after I made some character development I noticed that I was sort of like them. Hmm, maybe I didn't realize it till I made it into a character.
