TT_From Hero To Zero by Hiniha TT_From Hero To Zero by Hiniha
It always seems to surprise people when I mention that S actually had blue skin when I first created her. Probably because I never uploaded any art of this blue skinned hero version of her.

On left we have this "version 1 S" and on right the S the way she is today. 

So old story told again.
My first Teen Titans OC was this girl with pointy ears, blue skin, and blue hair. She wasn't even a human, just some kind of humanoid. Also she was supposed to become a heroine, one of the Teen Titans. And she had superpowers like water manipulation including icing. And her code name was "Blue S" for obvious reason. Probably I would have thought a better hero name if I did continue with this character concept.
But I didn't continue with this character because, during that time, there was one really similar looking Teen Titans OC. I really did research before releasing my own character! And I didn't want to be blamed about stealing someone's OC so I changed mine.

After that S became a blond (meta)human and her powers changed few times till I decided that she won't have superpowers at all. Then there was some little changes in her appearance. And that's how she became her miserable self that she is today. From superhero to supporting background character.


Sometimes I wonder how different things would be if had continued with the first idea I had for an OC, for S.
All the Frozen references I could have used in my art. And all the ice puns.



Teen Titans belongs to DC Comics, WB
S belongs to Hiniha

This reminds me of my O.C. Bud, at first he had powers, but I decided that I wanted him to be like Robin, a martial artist, glad I changed him.

So, what kind of powers did Bud have before you changed him?

It was really nerdy and goofy, his eye color determined what power he would be using, basically the regular known powers, like Telepathy, strength, lasers, X-ray vision, but no flight, unless he used telepathy.
I thought it was a little overboard, so I went with the regular no powers thing.

I think you mean telekinesis since that's manipulating objects with mind. Telepathy is like mind reading and stuff. I used to confuse those two too.
But you're right that's pretty many powers for one guy. Though some heroes have multiple powers.
Whould Bud's appearance been different if he had the superpowers?

Oh yeah, well Telepathy and telekinesis, sorry, both have tele, got confused, it happens to me. XD
and kind of, Bud did have a different appearance, but outfit wise, he was still a human with blonde hair, he just wore giant metal gloves and boots.
when I look at then and now, I'm really glad I changed him, because you know how it is when you create your OCs, at first you like it, but then you think something's wrong, I don't know.

Some one should make a version of the song from Hercules "Zero to Hero" but reverse it for her theme song..... "Hero to Zero. Just like that!"

:faint: She's BLUE!! Never realised she was blue!! *raids your gallery*.

To be honest, it's kind of awesome to see characters as they were on first being created. Like looking at a sketchbook :aww:

Some characters get more redraws than others before I'm happy with their looks.
Also looking back my first designs make me think "what if I had continued with the first idea"

I tend to cringe at my old designs Meacha used to be gold, and a sweet- lolita type. Do you ever find that some aspects of the old designs work better than the new stuff?

Sometimes I'm sad I can't create similar things that I used to do.
I'm not sure are my old designs better that old ones but there's still something I miss.

I agree with Linzerj! It's so interesting seeing the original concept and how much she's changed. This is awesome.

Wooaaaah...

But I think it's cool that you de-powered S instead of keeping the powers. Like, there are so many hero OCs already and it's so awesome to see S keeping pace with all the superhero weirdness while not having any powers at all.
