Some stuff about me
Hi, My name is Amanda though you can call me Manda or Cat.
I love to draw it is my passion. I started drawing when I was like 5 years old, and started working on the computer when I was 17 or 18.

I'm a really big fan of Pokemon. (Like you couldn't already tell that just by looking at my gallery.) I have a very in depth Pokemon story in the works. (Hopefully I'll start writing or drawing it here soon.)

I draw for the fun of it. I draw what ever makes me happy, it is my stress relief. (most of the time) so I have a tendency for drawing random things.

I rarely draw fanart of official characters, I don't really know why, but I just don't like to.

I love animals, before I got into art, I wanted to be either a vet, or a zoologist. Now I want to use my art to support me in some way.

I'd love to write and draw a comic, but sadly I struggle with confidence when it comes to that.

Anyways there's at least a little about me up here now. I might add more later.^^

This looked like fun.

1. Your first OC ever?

My first OC was and still is a shape shifter.
I came up with her when I was like 4 years old. She was the closet thing I ever had to an imaginary friend. I never talked to her, nor did I ever act like she was real.
She helped keep boredom and carsickness at bay on long car trips, and entertained me at places I had to be quiet and still.
She once had a name, but I can't quite remember it now.  Of course that was 21 years ago, and I only ever said her name once, so it's no surprise I can't recall it.  

She's still with me to this day, and she still helps me with not getting carsick.

The forms she generally takes are a T-Rex, some sort of Raptor like creature, some kind of Dog/Cat hybrid, and a small animal that I don't know what is.

I have no pictures of her.

My second oldest character would be 
Jake, who've I've had since I was 9 or 10 years old.

2. Do you have a personal favorite among your OCs?

Charmin and Ivy in all their various forms/versions. 


3. Have you ever adopted a character or gotten a character from someone else?

Well with being in PKMNation I have a lot that I've adopted.

I was given Gregory. Who can be seen here. 

4. A character you rarely talk about?

A lot actually, I have a lot of old characters that have been pushed aside for one reason or another, and that I don't talk about or draw anymore.

Also I rarely talk about my villains from my various stories.

5. If you could make only one of your OCs popular/known, who would it be?

I already have several that are popular: Charmin, Ivy and Abby. Though I never  thought that they'ed become popular.

6. Two OCs of yours that look alike despite not being related?

I've been told that Charmin and Abby have similarities in there Pokemon forms.

7. Are your OCs part of any story or stories?

All my characters are apart of some kind of story, I can't help it stories just happen.

8. Do you RP as any of your OCs? If you do, introduce one of your RP OCs here!

No. RPing is not my thing.

9. Would you ever be willing to give any of your OCs to someone else?

No, not really. Not even the one's I rarely draw.
Though I did give a 
Skullgrurrymon to one of my friends. But the Digimon's design is still technically mine.

10. Introduce an OC with a complicated design? 

Hmm. I guess Oz and Ebby count.

11. Is there any OC of yours you could describe as a “sunshine”?

Symphony is a rather happy, bubbly character. Does that count? 

12. Name an OC that isn’t yours but who you like a lot

Just going to name the one first one that comes to mind.
tamarinfrog's Napoleon

13. Do you have any troublemaker OCs? 

I have quite a few actually. But will stick with Holly (the one in the blue)
and Mavis (the Otter)

14. Introduce an OC with a tragic backstory 

Charmin and Ivy. 

TLWW, if you don't know their story, sorry.

15. Do you like to talk about your OCs with other people?

Yes, I'm actually more likely to talk if you get me on the subject of my OC's.

16. Which one of your OCs would be the best at biology (school subject)? 

He's actually really brainy.
He's also really good at math, even as a Charizard.

17. Any OC OTPs? 

Charmin and Ivy are the big one.

But I have a few others.

18. Any OC crackships? 

Not really, but anyone who gets into a relationship with would have to be a crakpot.

19. Introduce an OC that means a lot to you (and explain why)

Marshall And Kendra
I'm not really sure why these two mean so much to me, they just do. I know lame.

20. Do any of your OCs sing? If they sing, care to share more details (headcanon voice, what kind of songs they like etc)?

Mikko loves to sing. 
Listening to Chris Tomlin's Christmas CD was what inspired Mikko's current character. Before that he was just a name floating in space.
So I hear him with Chris Tomlin's voice.… and that's the type of music he likes as well.

21. Your most artistic OC?

Holly. (those are her old colors, not that you can see them vary well)

22. Is there any OC of yours people tend to mischaracterize? If yes, how? 

Charmin. He's been mischaracterized as bing a lazy sleepyhead. Which he isn't. Charmin is actually very active, and sufferers from insomnia. He rarely sleeps, and when he does it is very light.

23. Introduce OC that has changed from your first idea concerning what the character would be like?

Ha, that would be most of my OC. They never stay the same and are always changing in one way or another.

24. If you could meet one OC of yours, who would it be and why?

Holly probably. She's already good at knocking sense into me, she's probably do a better job if she were real. Also, she'd be fun to hang out with.

25. The OC that resembles you the most (same hobby, height, shared like/dislike for something etc?)

His personality is very much like mine.

26. Have you ever had to change your OC’s design or something else about them against your will? 

I've had people sort of complain about a few of my OC's designs, but I haven't changed them.

27. Any OCs that were inspired by a certain song?

Just Mikko mostly, and it was the inter CD not just one song. 

28. Your most dangerous OC? 


29. Which one of your OCs would go investigate an abandoned house at night without telling anyone they’re going?

MC the Raticate. Abandon houses are often full of wonderful things just waiting to be taken.

30. Which one of your OCs would most likely have a secret stuffed animal collection? 

Again MC. Don't tell anyone.

31. Pick one OC of yours and explain what their tumblr blog would be like (what they reblog, layout, anything really)

She'd reblog pictures of ducks, chickens, geese, and the like, and natural first aid tips. 

32. Which one of your OCs would be the most suitable horror game protagonist and why? 

Erin Winters probably. Why? Well she's already surrounded by monsters all the time. Also despite being barely 5 feet tall, Erin is able to take her almost 7 foot tall Charizard down when he's enraged. So she can handle things.

33. Your shyest OC?

Charmin Probably. Or 
Annabeth The Miltank

34. Do you have any twin characters?

Lily and Daisy

Patunia and Klaus

Mikko and Luki

35. Any sibling characters? 

All of the above and then some.

Not really.

37. Introduce an OC who is not quite human

Quigley and Marcie

38. Which one of your OCs would be the best dancer? 

Youri or Ivy.

39. Introduce any character you want 
Jimson the Unicorn that is bad at magic and wishes she was a Pegasus.

40. Any fond memories linked to your characters? Feel free to share!
I had a lot of fun coming up with Laogai my clueless Lugia. So I have fond memories from that.

But I have fond memories linked to most of my characters.

41. Has anyone drawn fanart of your OCs? If yes, maybe show a picture or two here (remember sources & permissions!)

Squeezefest 2011 by ShoJoJim 

More can be seen here.…

42. Which one of your OCs would be the most interested in Greek gods?

Abby, she loves Mythology of any kind.

43. Do you have any certain type when you create your OCs? Do you tend to favour some certain traits or looks? It’s time to confess.

A lot of my characters share some of my traits, especially when they are new, and haven't completely found there own personalities yet.

44. Something you like about your OCs in general

They are apart of me, they are fun to draw, they make me happy, and seem to make others happy.

45. A character you no longer use?


46. Has anyone ever told you that you treat your OCs badly?

Yep, a few time.

47. Has anyone ever (friendly) claimed any of your OCs as their child? 

Yep, not as their child, but as their's.

48. OC who is a perfect cinnamon roll, too good for this world, too pure

Pimsie and Bean maybe? 

49. Which one of your OCs would most likely enjoy memes?

Ummm, E.T. again maybe.
