Recolors are Shit by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Recolors are Shit by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
Your recolors make canon characters look retarded, so please stop. You're killing the fandom with your Mary-Sues/Gary-Stus.

It's also illegal. c:

The recolored character in the stamp is Hei from Darker Than Black... I feel awful for what I've done. :c

It's because of copyright.. Recolors are basically copying another's character and applying your own colors.

It's not so much as it's illegal, but it's frowned upon since all recolors are just some Canon character (let's say Sakura Haruno from Naruto for an example) having their hair, eyes and clothes changed to a different color.

What's wrong with recolors? Sonic has some canon recolors. Let's take Amy for example. She looks like a female Sonic except she is pink and has the same dreads as Knuckles.

And the same thing goes to Shadow. He looks like a black Super Sonic.

AH WELL NEVER MIND! SOME RECOLORS DO LOOK LIKE SHIT ANYWAY.

Those recolours you mentioned are official characters, so that's fine.

It's not the colours themselves. It's the artwork.

They are recolouring over something a person drew. To a lot of artists, it is incredibly offensive if someone alters/steals their artwork without their permission. It is only okay if they ask the artist and they say yes.

Most of the time, they are recolouring over a screenshot from a movie, animation, television series or an illustration from the official artists of that franchise. These have a copyright protection on them. They are performing copyright infringement if they do not have the permission from the company who owns the franchise.

There you go. Have a good day. C:

:stare: Recoloring an existing character is probably the laziest way to create OCs (or fan characters for that matter).

I hate recolours as well. They ruin the original character. My original characters I draw and colour and assign a colour scheme to them for example, Lucas Hill's outfit has to have green in them in his out-of-school clothing. As I had created him in 2007 it is natural that he wears green as his standard outfit, and I have an individual design for each of the main characters. It took me a long time to design him, and the work involved paid off. Though Lucas' design is similar to his cousin's, who is another major character, you could identify which one is which by a few features. For example, Lucas has a strand of hair on his forehead while his cousin has two strands behind his ears. There are a few other differences in the cousins' design but I might be going off-topic. In so-called "OC's" recolours you find in other fandoms you don't get the differences in characters at all so you would get confused.
