Well, I've seen a lot of OCs. One thing I've noticed is that people try to make them overly extravagant, probably to try to make them look more original, but when you see it enough it starts to get boring. So it was nice to finally get one that looked like a normal person. Plus he was an adorable redhead with glasses and he looked good in jeans.
This might sound weird, but I was looking through old art I did for other people and I found one I did for you of Raymond, and I have to say that Raymond was one of my most favorite characters I've drawn for somebody.
