My characters are like.. .. by Pirate-Reaper My characters are like.. .. by Pirate-Reaper
On tumblr here-…  ;v; 

You might want to download.. dont know how big this thing is
For the poor quality of art on this? yeah thats on purpose.. i wanted it to be like a kid had drawn, written and coloured it in..
it seems that when im down the only real thing that cheers me up is drawing my characters or seeing them drawn by others, normally when im in a depressed mood i scan through my faves to find art that my friends have gifted or i have commissioned,
either that or drawing Tango and Cade nearly naked seems to do the trick :I
i actually tried to do a lot of 'symbolism' in the background colours, mainly the harsh red on my parents wedding photo, and the background mainly around myself
i dont think i drew myself big enough but oh well
have some slightly meaningful art with brought so many feels to me while drawing
Sorry for my lack of activity in the last few days, work and stuff.. ugh..

gonna roll to bed now

Just an edit:

:bulletgreen: I did not expect this to get as much attention as it has done, and i cried multiple times over this q_q thank you so much
:bulletgreen: this does apply to writers aswell, you dont need to have the ability to draw to make a character
:bulletgreen: This is my thoughts/views/opinions/feelings, so im not trying to speak for everyone
:bulletgreen: Im pretty sure i dont have any form of mental condition, the only health related things i have its a thyroid problem and depression, but the depression has come lately and hay, over 1,0000 people re-blogged and related so i carnt be so insane, right?
:bulletgreen: I read every comment, on here and tumblr, i just dont often reply because im shy of talking to people.

Reading through the tumblr notes, people seem to be saying negative things about the 'they stop me from doing/saying bad things' well.. they do, but in their own way. You see, when i got bulled i didnt react to the person instead i drew my characters, i drew them being abused in some form of vent because it got my anger out on them rather than on a person and getting myself in worse trouble. Thats how they stopped me, if i wanted to yell something i bite my tongue and save it for the piece of paper infront of me. so they do stop me from saying/ doing bad things, if they wasnt there for me to vent on then it wouldnt make me feel any better and i would probably loose it one day and punch someone.

:bulletred: I have been asked a few times.. how and why i see these guys and it all relates to my past, im not posting this here, but im my Stash, so if you want to read my reasons for this then go ahead. but it might be depressing or something.

This is ao beautiful, and I understand you completely. I often find my characters, the more personal one's are often who I can connect to better than sometimes, real people.

I totally understand. Sometimes I prefer people who aren't real to the people who are.

Gotta hand it to you, you pretty much gave the best possible reason for us artists to like our OCs, no matter who or what they are.

This is very true.

I think that it's great that our characters make us individually happy, but even more satisfying in my opinion is using your characters to make other people happy.
The people who do this make shows and comics and that inspires others to make their own characters. And thus starts a chain of events that never end.

Some people say that making these imaginairy people are useless.

They are quite wrong. If I spent all my life making an imaginairy person that would live forevor and inspire generations to come...

Life to me would be well worth the trouble.

T-T This is so touching, I can relate so much to this, love it love love it. I don't even know what to say really, prob my most favorite thing I've seen on DA.
Thank you so much, when I uploaded this I didn't expect it to get so much attention, its been quite a hit on tumblr also. Is nice to know we are never alone in how we feel about our characters ;v;
