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.

our characters are a part of ourselves so in a way they are our family. they bounce around our heads, living our lives with us.

I always felt the same way about my characters, it's nice to know that someone thinks like me. I'm with you sis NaLu - Holding out his hand... 
Jonsukka Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Really beautiful work!!
I also feel same way. I rarely talk about my characters in real life, because people wouldn´t understand. I think it´s because I put so much efford to them and spend time with them so much. (and I have more than 100 characters)

Art like this really makes me feel that there is people like me. I am not one of my kind and that is very good to know. =)
Aleu21 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014
My gosh, I love this. Just...yes. To every panel lol.
 And I highly doubt you have a mental condition. If you do I have the same thing XD Perfectly normal, for artists :) (I seriously hope I didn't just put my foot in my mouth) Great job!

My imaginary friends are not imaginary friends~! They're people from another universe we call anime or errr...something like that! I relate to this so much it's unreal! I'm more of the artistic type but, ever since I was four, sometimes,I'll get up, out of nowhere and start,I guess roleplay, with my favorite characters and my OC's~! They storylines I made up were always off the charts and off the top of my head,no scripts! It would even go from three hours straight,out of breath and I'd have to force myself to stop, because of school or breathing,or 30 minutes~!My siblings think it's weird but, I don't care! My mom says it isn't weird and she as a poet\writer once that a nominated in contest! From time to time,I would be inspired to draw it out or,if it had this huge complex story,I would want to write it! Can someone help me out with the whole ever since I was four thing,I want to know what it's called. I usually call it a game because that was the only way to describe it when I was younger! Now that I'm older,I want to know what it is! I hate call things by the wrong name~!

Oh my goodness. This. This is perfect. This is brilliant.
Everyone I've ever encountered needs to read this. It answers their questions much better than I have concerning why I always have my sketchbook on me.

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.

YurixTheWanderer Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
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.
NinjaShule Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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.
