Q:WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
So dearly beloved James started something of a draw your inner demon thing and so I did mine (actual official picture not finished yet). Then we got to talking. James and I have a very special history with pigeons. And that is all the context you get.
Samej belongs to James, the other, not yet named one, belongs to me.
(side note: I feel weird about posting actual original stuff to this blog, I pretty much never do…)
it’s an inside joke

" I’m tempted to offer drawing other people’s inner demons if they submit them, but I don’t wanna end up committing to that and end up getting a dozen submissions. ”

Yeah but I don’t want to end up committing to it and then getting overwhelmed if it grows in popularity.
clockchimesthirteen said: That sounds cool! Do you mind if I use this idea? I kinda want to make one for myself.
Anyone can make one, I encourage it. The inner demon (project?) is more or less an exercise in self reflection. I think its healthy to acknowledge your faults and embrace them. [ Here’s my lil how to process on making one ]

Indeed, some of my friends have showed me theirs and its absolutely amazing what they can come up with.
weighteddown said: Cans pay?
I have absolutely no problem with the offer of payment to draw someone’s character. Maybe just make it a minimum $30 usd for a flat colored drawing if its an inner demon commission (that’s $10 off what I usually charge for flats).

glacialghost said: How’d you go about picking the traits for your inner demon? I mean if it isn’t too personal. Kinda wanna make my own tbh /)///(\
Well, originally I was just trying to draw a picture of myself but changed my mind about half way and drew something I had been stewing over for a while. But I mean anyone’s inner demon can look however they want. It’s not like I patented the idea. But I mean if you make one let me know and I’ll re-blog it here since I think it’s neat you (or anyone else) wants to try it out.
But, I’ll say my process anyways in case you need a base to build off or just want to mimic the style. But idk how help full it will be.
I’m actually a bit surprised by how well received my ‘Inner Demon’ artworks has been. I’m used to my game fanart getting noticed and all the commentary and re-blogs, so its kinda weird seeing my original art getting just as much attention.
It’s also a bitter hilarity that the art depicting a character that represents my worst traits has become my more popular originals.
God damn irony right there.
Inner demon art set it supposed to be a bit about self acceptance. Acknowledging both the good and bad side about yourself. And instead of trying to suppress and ignore your bad traits, try to understand them, work with them, and learn to manage them. Semaj represents my worst traits and how I feel people seem to perceive me. There’s a lot more deeper symbolism that goes with his design but I’ll explain that another day.
