Reference Sheet: Pack Rat by secret-pony Reference Sheet: Pack Rat by secret-pony
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. :giggle:

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.

It's your good right to voice your opinion,
though I really don't need anyone's thoughts or approval on my own oc... ^^;

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.
