Sometimes its difficult being an artist online who works primarily with original characters. FanArt carries with it the followings of large franchises, often leaving original work unnoticed. I struggle to get even 3 favorites on original character pieces, while fan art I've done in less than a third of the time has received hundreds of favorites and dozens of comments. I know, DeviantArt isn't exactly the best place for my kind of work. A vast majority of the sites attention is paid to 'My Little Pony' artwork and pornagraphic material.

Now, I've been no exception to the trend of preferring well known franchises to original work, as most of what I favorite is fanart. So I thought I'd take a positive step myself to alleviate some of this hypocrisy, by making a list of my top 5 favorite original characters on DeviantArt.

1. Skat - 

2. Franco -

3. Leo -

4. MooBeard -

5. Popple the Penguin -

It was a bit tricky to pick my top five (these are in no particular order, btw), as some characters both on the list and those that didn't make it rode a fine line for what I might consider professional, and therefore desire to exclude. Got your own favorite original characters on DeviantArt? Leave your comments below!
