I know he looks very similar to your OC X( (a friend told me few weeks ago) I'm breaking my head to see what I can change that way it wont bother you :/ (like the face markings or the secondary fur colour) but it still has a ressemblance with you >.< But my bf in real life loves grey wolves, has black hair, the beard and the earring, and the tattoos... When he made his character he didn't knew you, and we never tried to stole your OC or aything. It's still hard to design a good OC that looks like him in appearance and looks different enough to don't be like other OC's. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible, I promise
Oh no I know it wasn't meant on purpose, my comment was actually a quote from the film 'Face Off' xD Well, if you'd like help with ideas or anything, myself and Deni would love to help you out?
And also, you are the first person who's actually replied with a lovely friendly comment. There's other users who actually do blatantly copy designs, and when they are called out about it, they get extremely hostile and end up throwing their white knights at you. But you're the first person who's actually been positive, and that is really awesome!
Well, is pretty obvious that the similitude between your Oc and Derk's are a lot, and I would be a silly person if I didn't accept that...But really we made his OC like that because of his characteristics ( you can see him here [link]) and he usually has the beard like the first picture so that's why I made the black beard on his OC...
I really appreciate your proposal, and if it doesn't bother you and you have the opportunity I would love to see your ideas, but only if you can Thank you anyway for understanding, I'll change him as soon as I find a good way to do it! (It will be soon, I promise! )
