how does one sparkledog?

22 Dec 2017, 3:41 pm
i want to make a sparkledog oc but honestly have no idea how to even remotely go about it. surprisingly i never actually went through one of those phases when i was younger - i jumped straight into Ow The Edge and kind of never came out. so... now that i want to make a sparkledog, how would i even start?

bonus points if you show me yours

i never made one, and my closest thing to it was my wocky oc on neopets, but i don't have any pictures of them anymore

it's just an unnaturally colored canine with like... human hair? long bangs. usually over one of the eyes. some piercings. some stockings on the legs- bonus points for fishnets, extra bonus points for being ripped.

it's like your typical scene kid, but a dog

sounds easy enough. maybe if i try to make it an edgy sparkledog i'll be able to do it... that sounds awful. now i legit want it

for my sparkledog i went with a 2009 scene kid look!!

but really sparkle animals just tend to have lots of bright colors on them. here's some of my fave examples!

From what I've seen, basically:
- Neon colors
- Lots of colors, ideally somewhat clashing with each other
- Rainbows/rainbow gradients
- Edgy accessories, sometimes fandom items
- Probably scene hair
- Lots of patterns/designs

Generally extremely overcrowded characters in their authentic form, but if simplified a bit they can make a good OC with some nostalgia thrown in there, lol

The closest I've got is my gross dragon-weasel, Marcus:
1496765152.kingscrafty_marcus_ref_sheet_
Basically use as many colours as you'd like and make it busy so long as it doesn't clash. You need at least one plain base colour (black, white, grey or beige work quite well here) that you can build all of your colours on top of; these colours can also break up sections if they don't look right. Make everything highly saturated but for the love of god please don't make them the brightest hue possible. This makes it painfully eye-straining which takes away from the fun of it

You got it! I've known too many that actually physically hurt when you look at them. Try to avoid that it's not fun haha

I feel like a lot of these examples are more "scene" dog than "sparkle" dog. Which there is overlap, but google image search "sparkle dog" and you'll know what I mean. I don't know the true definition but my perception of sparkle dogs has always been the "ADD MORE DECORATION! MORE!!" rather than just simple brightness or simple overall aesthetic. Nothing simple about a sparkle dog, MORE DAKKA!

As for how to make one, sew together as many patterns, colors, adornments, and accessories as you can, then paste a few more in for good measure.

I don't think I ever left my sparkledog phase tbh xD Basically all of my characters are bright and unnatural, like I just EAT. THAT. UP omg
But if I had to pick the ones that were the most crazy/rainbow it would probably be these kids

Saturation is key. And clashing colors.

my villager Greeni might be a "sparkle dog."
got it as a wanderer so dunno if that was the intention.
