::DC OC:: Ren-Lor by Lumen-Terra ::DC OC:: Ren-Lor by Lumen-Terra
What can I say? I have this weird affection for Kryptonians. :shrug: 

Ren is a 19 year old space cadet who got thrown through space and time when a phantom drive engine exploded. 
He's also paired up with OpethHunter-Predacon's DC OC Kestrel but he's too dense to realize it. I decided to let him live in a made up city on a made up island: Aurora Coast. It's less troublesome to write like this. 
Update:
He's supposed to be part of YJ, meaning: he's from Earth 16. 
He now has a little sister: Alura-Han-Lor. Because of that I also changed some serious parts of him as well as his story. 

Kryptonians are a race owned by DC comics. I own nothing besides my art and ideas - and I'm just having some non profit fun.

His hair! Such wonder...

I've seen his ref change a number of times and have just been sort of hanging out, but I figured I'd actually write a comment. You did an awesome job with him, I really like the style. Look like he's just stepped right out of a cartoon. It's great stuff!
He's also very well thought-out and crafted. I love how his fear of the dark and his homesickness speak volumes about his emotional vulnerability. Like the deepest--dare I say it?--Most human parts of him are the ones that are sort of based around the instinctual 'fight or flight' response. He gets scared, and he has a craving for security and safety.

Yes. His hair gets brighter each update. xD It's a mystery to everyone. 

I copied the Young Justice style as best as I could. Reference upon reference and I even practiced the pose and proportions by tracing a few bases in private. It took me a while to master it tbh. 

This is the problem with kryptonians. Little to nothing can really physically hurt them on Earth. So the only way to ground them and make them "human" is by focusing on their character and mind. Like every living being has hopes and dreams but also fears and desires. Ren here was falling through a dark rip in time and space in a split second where everything went boom. I guess it's only natural that he'd be homesick, especially if there was no home to return to. 

Thanks a lot for your comment. If you want to and if you have the time you could help me make him better by telling me if I messed up somewhere. I'm not scared of criticism. :D

Well one day he will be an old man with white hair anyway. xD 
You are right. I colored it two shades too bright but I can't fix that now. 
The crest can look different. If the original pattern is kept then it's fine. Just look at all the "S" that the big blue has worn over the years. x'D

Thank you!! :la:

Everyone should be allowed to have their favorite characters and races without being hassled. But Superman Superior, Super boy as well. He's cool XD
Don't get me wrong though, batman is cool too, but aliens and people with powers are always greater in my opinion.

Sure, it's a good idea. It gives some inside to the picture. I always do descriptions. Just don't make it too long (if it's long like a story it is better to post it as such, you can post pdf files or txt on dA).

I'm pretty sure his hairs lighter? He's so adorable I wanna squish those cheeks! Now we have to do something where he's stuck in the dark and clinging to kestrel like a baby while she trying to fix the fuse box XD

It just looks lighter because I used less shading on it. It has always been this dark honey brown. xD 

Come on! It makes sense that an alien who's getting his powers from the sun is scared of the dark! Imagine a steel rod tied to your leg, that's Ren when he's scared at night. x"D

I've named Ren "Superstar" now. -cheesy I know but it has super in it and isn't taken already. I'm also calling him either dork of steel or man of diamond in my head or when I'm talking to my work partner. :3

Pshhh If big blue had a problem Kes would boldly sass him. That woman has NO fears of who she's sassing. She's been a pain for bat's too XD 

Awh how a-dork-able. Kes can walk around shouting where's my superstar, wheere's my rennyboy, where's my super cloud. XD I imagine she'd like to cuddle with him even if he's not wanting too and she'll say hes a snuggy super cloud XD

Hmmh. I think that when you make an OC and want him/her/it to be believable and likable you need to make them relatable. As cool as all those idealized wish fulfillment OCs are, you never really get a feel for them. Like they aren't alive in their own world. 
What do you think? 
Reply
:icontemarcia:
temarcia Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2018  Hobbyist Writer
A agree with that, of course, it also depends what we consider a 'wish fulfillment' because OCs can have some elements of what the author wishes for as long as it is balanced and fitting to the Universum the oc is from. I mean, if the 'idol' type of character is played right it might still work, I think. Personally, I'd play a character like that for a comedic purpose. While sometimes the 'everyman' type of character who seems reliable might turn out boring after some time. Of course that all is relative - because for example you like Superman and I like Batman so what is reliable is just personal taste of the reader. :D

:iconlumen-terra:
Lumen-Terra Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2018  Professional Interface Designer
Well said. I couldn't agree more. :D 
The wish fulfillment OC would in this case be a author self insert that is purely made to let one single person be the center of said person's favorite book/show/movie and let's them interact with their favorite canon characters or OCs. - Sorry. I should have been more clear on that.

So yeah, we perfectly agree on it. :D
I'm not a fun of making my charas interacting with canon charas (unless necasserly). And by the way, I don't know how to make my font small like you did. xD

Oh that's easy. Type this first <
then type the word: small
and then close it with this >
to get this: < _small _>  (I placed the _ to make it visible to you. If done correctly it should be small.

to stop writing in super tiny just place a / between the < and the "small" Like this </_small_> (again without the _ ! )
