Clarissa wasn't the first OC to appear here. It was Paula.Paula by rachetcartoons
But later after I first drew Clarissa I loved the way I designed her, so instead I made her my flagship character.Clarissa by rachetcartoons
Who knows, the whole premise could've been "Paula and Friends".


Here's a new-ish DOTN song.

Come to think of it, wasn't there a TV show about someone named Clarissa?  Anyway, I think Clarissa fits better as your flagship character.

My personal flagship character isn't part of any of my comics, he's just an all-purpose character.  To be honest, I don't draw him enough, like you do with Clarissa.

Yeah. This 90s Nick show called "Clarissa Explains It All".

I've heard of it before.  I think you made a joke involving the title of that show.

Same could be said for Christie. She's not the Main star, but she's so pretty I love to draw her.

And Britney is my most-loved character (I don't know if it's design-wise or character-wise), but the first one(s) to appear were Joe and Venny, and I still stand by Joe being the main star.

Yeah. I personally think Britney must be the fan favorite because of probably her looks and her antics of a relateable teenage girl. Also for her tummy tricks.

I think the latter is the real reason she is famous. She does have a personality, though. But design-wise, she seems to be more loved, just like how Clarissa seemed to be more loved due to her design. However, comparing our cases, I released Joe (and Venny) first, and even though Britney is more loved, Joe is still supposed to be the star. As for you, you uploaded Clarissa second, yet now she is the main star.

But I guess this also goes with my theory over what people like more/first: they look at design first before thinking of character and personality (which might be why girls liked the Once-Ler in The Lorax). They first look at the design and decide they like them just because of how they look. Then they see what they do, such as play guitar, take photos, do tricks with their bodies, move a certain way, etc., and the audience suddenly feels some connection with them. Again, that's people who like what they see, and that's why people still go see the Transformers movies despite the fact that they suck because they do the same things over and over again with no new surprises. (So how many people do you think will go see Pixels despite the fact that Adam Sandler is behind it?)

True. I chose Clarissa to be the main star because I thought she would be perfect with building a personality: polite, kind, quirky; and most of all: adorkable. But yeah what people see of that person/character will instantly like the most 'cause of either looks or traits.

I guess those traits fit her best. I especially like the "adorkable" trait. :aww:
