OC- Re: Shift Up by GamefreakDX OC- Re: Shift Up by GamefreakDX
So I decided to somewhat, redesign Shift Up and with this reference having some kind of perspective. So macro fans, rejoice... kinda.

- Name: Shift Up
- Type: Earth - Normal
- Origin: Idea came from the Teen Titans villian, XL Terrestrial.
- Cutie Mark: 3 arrows progressively getting larger.
- Ability: She has the ability to grow and/or shrink in size, but there's no cap to that. As a result, she could outgrow the galaxy if she wished, which she probably won't. She also has the ability to size-shift other ponies or anything alive, but it only lasts for about 10 minutes max, and she's very cautious about doing that anyway. These powers aren't legit though as they came from a potion, and from it come with lots of side effects. Main example is that if her powers aren't used for a while, like a week, then she'll lose control of her powers for a while, making her grow or shrink to a random size. It can be very troublesome.
- Personality: She's extremely shy much like Magmaberry, but unlike Magmaberry, she doesn't have a harsh side. She's extremely quite and tries to fit in with other ponies around, but considering her larger size compared to other ponies, she feels a bit alone. However, ponies around do also fear her in case she goes rouge with her powers, but in actuality, she doesn't use her powers often. Mainly because she doesn't like violence, however, she has used her powers to harm others once or twice, but those are very rare and far in between. Even then, she does get some pleasure from the size-shifting, but isn't an addiction. She also doesn't have any fashion sense... or so she thinks. Since her mane and tail grow extremely fast, she doesn't bother with trying to style them in any way and as a result, is very messy most of the time.
- Backstory: Shift Up's parents were scientists and at one point created a potion in progress. Shift was very young and was taken everywhere in case something bad happened to her, but one day, she was left in the lab while her parents did something elsewhere. Shift climbed out and messed with the potions causing her to drink one of the potions by accident. The potion caused her to grow massive, but quickly became normal sized again. A few years had passed with Shift getting used to her powers with her gaining her Cutie Mark as a result, but during all that, she also realised her growth rate was very quick. At this point, she's about x1.5 the size of a normal pony which actually scares her especially for her future.

So yeah, decided to add a bit more to her, although it's a bit much, but I'm not trying to just because I'm a macro fan.

[EDIT] Added a few more bits to her personality and abilities. Ones I forgot to add that were present in the original.

Cool Pic, XL Terrestrial is my fave background villain from Teen Titans, wish they had used him more often. 
The cutie mark is amazing and sites the character. :)

I acctually didn't care that much for XL. I just just liked the concept and that arrow mark he has on his chest.

Thanks. But of course the macro/micro pony's the one that gets the most love.

I get the feeling that you aren't entirely happy with that…

Let me ask you; who out of your OCs is your favorite? Like, your absolute #1 favorite.

I'm okay with it. It's just a it sad to me that my macro pics are the ones that get the most attention.
Out of my OCs (not Sonas)... my favourites are probably Magmaberry and Green Storm. Magmaberry was my first OC though, so that's probably not fair. Green Storm just for her personality and abilities.

2 things; in order of which you said.

1) Well then how about you just draw stuff YOU like and make the Macro/Micro like a less major thing? Like, you could still draw any of that, but just draw what YOU like more, you know? ///w^\ Plus, although a few watchers that came to you specifically for the Macros may leave, you'll very likely gain new ones that enjoy the other more normal stuff.

2) Well Triplet was my first OC and he's still my ultimate favorite. I don't think that time of creation/birth/whatever-you-wanna-call-it really has any significance as to which one is your favorite OC. And in regards to the first thing; Why not just draw your favorite OC more? And then just make everything else - like Macros - kind of like a side-thing?


You should draw what you like, and just save the other stuff for whenever you just feel like it. At least, that's how I see it ;3

I have technically done less macro things. In fact I don't think this pic is a macro one. It just has a bit of perspective. Otherwise, I have 1 macro pic coming up and that's a request from way back.
The biggest problem is, is what to draw with my OCs. I mean, I have a plan with my Tinkerbat Sona, but I haven't done that yet. I plan a Kingdom Hearts pic... Maybe a bit more, but you know.

Well the biggest thing I really wanna say is just make sure that you're drawing stuff that you want to, and not just for others. Like I get that commissions are necessary since they offer a source of income, and you get to do what you like for it. But don't like overfill yourself with commissions - especially if you don't even like some of them.

I really hope what I said came out like I meant it ///_=\

Well I guess I am drawing things I want to do, but it's just that most of what I've drawn as of late, is macro related of some sort.
