The fans of my webcomic got angry because I made a trans character. :<
Yep this is me... I make a character... scrap them... feel sorry and come back to them, spend five weeks ironing the kinks out of their personality and visual appearance. Spend another week and a half plotting out the backstory and occasionally re-doing their personality again. Spend another week and a bit developing their weaknesses, likes and dislikes (and major abilities...).
Or on occasion I simply make a character, draw them, quick personality overview and decide that their fine... and then develop them loads more when I come back and decide that they're much too flat... although Zara ( fav.me/d6guxpd ) Had about five day's spent just on her personality... as for her companions they're still being worked on and her family? I have yet to solidify her mother's design while all her father has is a name...
Also I usually spend about a month overall just on the backstory and ironing out any plotholes in it... so yeah I work hard on my OFCs
