i mean-fantrolls were really my first introduction to making ocs! anything i had before them was kinda a self-insert or just an animal i doodled regularly [i was an animal artist before becoming a fantroll artist about 4 years ago]
BUT out of those guys, the first was faldur! although, i made him and florem on the same day, may 14th 2013, so theyre turning 4 years old in 12 days!
bonus facts: faldur was made around the fact that the fansession we were creating didnt have an “asshole character” yet, and florem was made just around the idea of. a scarf
Learned how to make gifs, so i made a gifset for my dad, who was a 9/11 wtc first responder, stuck through the whole thing until the wtc site was cleaned up. A few years later he ended up with throat and esophageal cancer from breathing in the toxins from the dust and passed away May 14th, 2013. I thought this was a great summary of his long video.
