Tips to make your own Gacha Club OC

Now that you have learned to make an OC on Gacha Club, you should consider the following pointers to make your character stand out from others.

  • Don’t use oversaturated colored items: Wanting to distinguish your PC from other characters is good but applying colors that are oversaturated for your composition isn’t necessary. Especially for in-body features, it’s advised that you not use oversaturated colored as they might make your OC look unpleasing.
  • Determine the right color palette for your OC: While choosing nothing items, props, and body features, it’s important to set a color palette that will go with your OC. Leave room for some contrasting colors but don’t go overboard on colors. Also, do not apply the same color to more than two items of your OC.
  • Don’t add too many props or clothing items: Too much of anything is bad and that’s the case on point if you add way too many props to your OC. Decide on whether your character needs a cape and if it does, don’t add a wing or a tail to the mix. The goal is to make your OC look unique but pleasant enough for the eyes.
  • Add a personality and occupation that goes with your OC’s looks: Your OC should maintain character on paper as well if not just the looks.
