The 'official' Pack Rat reference sheet. It was about time I made one ^^
Pack Rats personality: I short, he's a typical hyperactive young boy, who loves treasure hunting and hoarding his junk treasures.
He has a huge dislike for girls and anything pink, frilly or girly in general. But he loves playing pranks, messing around in the dirt, looking adventure... He has no notion of the concept of "stealing", he just "finds" treasure that apparently, happened to belong to someone else first. But he's a bit of a goofball, as a result he often gets caught and gets into troubles.
He always carries around a bag, in case he stumbles upon more junk treasure. He's not a very good flyer, due to the weight of his bag... (but he's yet to realize this)
He has his own hideout, an underground room beneath a tree a bit outside of the Everfree Forest. (Kind of like a cave, or a rabbit hole) It's his own little 'club house' where he stashes his loot. He never told anyone about it, for fear of other ponies stealing his beloved inventory. But he practically lives there (there's a sleeping bag and stolen food). Actually many know about his hideout. He's no ninja, they can see him entering and exiting the place. But no one ever thinks of taking anything, cause there's really nothing but junk down there.
For coloured lines: pick whatever line colours you think are best.

Gotta be honest with you... he's the one out of the fish among the overrated bullshit Little-Dragon already explained and I've seen 99 already. He's cute, not badass, not "evil" or whatever. So yeah.... it's nice to see something different.
Honestly, are red and black oc's horrid? Razoreye, my cat fursona, is red and black, and I think she's pretty fucking creative. I just don't have her story up yet. So, even if you saw her story, would you automatically at first glance think, "Oh look, a shit character"? If we artists have to change what we like and what we have created, we will either not enjoy art anymore, and cease to make it, OR we will continue what we do, despite what people like you think. I honestly think most would do that latter, no matter how much hate they get for what they do, because honestly, we draw for ourselves, we just like sharing with the public what we were able to accomplish in our next new drawing. All in all, red and black oc's do not 'SUCK'. Maybe the color scheme is overused, but so are so many other color schemes.
This is fanart, likeability in fanart depends on the fandom, therefore have universal rules due to common opinion, get over it.
Fuck you too. If you really thought your OC was any good you wouldnt think you are being included in shitty OC spectrum, unless your really not sure. You wouldnt even have replied, thus, because its human to commonly want feedback unless your some sort of social outcast that point is completely invalid
Yes they do. Sure you can counter act the suckishness of rednblack. In the end its STILL red and black. Colorscheme for cool. FUCK the cool, this is about ponies, cute, not cool.
Why would I care about other people's oc's? It's not as if they're ever going to be together in a story or an image or an rp. They can do whatever they want and I can do whatever I want.
This is how my oc, the realisation of my feelings, imagination, etc..., looks like. If I need to change my ideas, and therefor myself, for the sake of others, then there's something fundamentally wrong with this world.
You think black and red oc's suck... and therefore I need to change my ideas? Lots of other people make black and red oc's... and therefore I need to change mine? ... I didn't think so. These colours are part of my oc, if I would change them, it would change my oc entirely. And for what reason? Because the opinion of a few people? I'm not shallow enough for that.
There are more pressing matters on what makes a good oc rather than their colours. Why don't we start a witch hunt on EVERY orphan background, EVERY tomboy girl, EVERY unicorn who's got great world-changing powers but doesn't realize it yet, EVERY competing-with-rainbowdash fast pegasus, or for that same matter EVERY pegasus who will never fly... I can go on...
Why are all of these things justified as long as they don't have one of the select few colour schemes that are "not done" (red and black, rainbow and black, etc...)?
Does anyone looking at your OC with a glance care about what YOU think and what YOUR feelings are before I flame you?
I dont care m8! Im only here to tell you that your wearing a nazi banner and a hitler mustache into a racial diversity meeting inside a synagogue
And dont tell me its just a few people there are so many so done with the shit I'm surprised nobody has told you yet. Get With The Program.
put it this way: I made this cake, I put sawdust in it, and you still have to eat it because its immediate and you cannot UNSEE a picture unlike a cake, in which you can puke it out. Do you care if I put "Lots of imagination and I used my feelings oh fuck so deep" into making the cake? No, because deep down inside you want to murder me for trying to make you eat a cake made with sawdust and iced with shit. HOWEVER since you MUST eat the cake you find that I put enough sugar to coat the taste and smell of the shit and sawdust and your actually fine with it. Hell, it even tastes good.
Now what? Do you still murder me or pat me on the back for doing the fucking impossible?
I chose the latter. I'm also tell you to stop making shit flavored cakes because everyone only cringes at he sight of it even if its tasty.
Actually I quite like your idea on a which hunt (I sort of am doing this RIGHT NOW?). That sounds like fun, and you probably know someone like me would have nothing else better to do with their life than make other's miserable. I will stamp "HERESY" onto all that I can find, call them a flaming faggot and get banned in the process. Your a genius.
I swear to god if you say I'm racist and being an asshole I will only laugh harder at the failure to see the obvious. But I dont think you will. I trust you have friends unlike me. And if you are trolling please stop we're embarrassing ourselves
Just a request: Could you describe his personality to me with some detail? I'm entering for the contest, if all goes according to plan! Gonna draw him with Javis, who is the youngest pony oc (10-12 yr old) I have. The Hoarder and the Thief lol!
Just think of a selfish young boy with the mindset of last generation's kids. (The ones who didn't have mobile phones and internet x3) He's mischievous and sometimes even a bit evil, but he doesn't realize it. He steals, pranks, plays, ... without taking others into account. (Like he doesn't realize stuff he finds could belong to someone alrdy, he just wants it because he likes it. Or he would bump into and knock you over you while playing a game of tag and wouldn't stop to say sorry... mostly because he's too self-absorbed to even notice) A bit of a tsundere when it comes to developing new relations. He can't deal with kindness or affection, because in his eyes that's stuff for girls, and he's a man!
I hope that's enough for now :3 If you would like more information, like in specific circumstances or so, let me know ^^
