the last couples days i've been feeling really unstable. usually i don't like to share such personal stuff outside of convos with close friends or on private servers, but that's where the tone of this piece was coming from, so please understand that this is a very tender piece to me.
it wasn't planned out at all, i sketched the body loosely, and everything else i just pulled straight out of my head, and onto the digital canvas, if that makes sense? the tone came from how i've been feeling, and i was going for a more somber mood with cooler tones and relaxed body language in the main character of this.
the character in this is my persona, a character i've used to identify myself for a few years, whom's design i made when i was 13/14 years old. she really is just "me with horns", and while it might seem like such a minor difference, it helps me put myself into my personal pieces, while still staying detached enough to not feel awkward or narcissistic about implementing myself in my art, even when the art's focus is... myself?
somebody pointed out to me elsewhere that the style looks similar to purplekecleon/glitchedpuppet, and i want to say that it was not the intention at all, and i'm sorry if it looks that way. i'm not super familiar with PK/GP outside of that PMD group they used to run on deviantart; this style i used on this piece came more from a sloppy lack of care on my part (not saying that's what PK/GP's style is, like i said, i'm not familiar) and was done all on one layer, so overlapping and re-outlining, etc, happened a lot throughout the process. cheers, sorry if this is confusing or doesn't make sense.
