My entry to
's contest for the webcomic, Hot Mess. It's not colored because I don't know how to color (well/at all) on photoshop, and scanning colored pencils looks worse, so it's just lineart.
Materials used: 2h pencil, .5 mechanical pencil, standard pen (some hotel brand, nothing fancy), photoshop (for scanning and touch-ups)
The various animal persona's are, from right to left:Fwump the slug
- the personification of my procrastination. He tends to pop up when deadlines are fast approaching, re-assuring me that I can always do it tomorrow, even when I can't.Bleat the goat
- He's a loud fella, who tends to appear at random times to yell at me to write something, particularly Fanfiction or my current novel.Adrian the vampire bat
- the personification of the dark little voice in my head that just loves to break the rules. His advice usually consists of new ways to torture my characters, as well as tempts to light things on fire. Though he usually only wins out in the written world, sometimes his real-life advice is followed... getting me in more trouble than he's worth.Darwin the sugar-glider
- Quite the worrywart, Darwin expresses the eternal fear of judgment or sticking out from the status quo. He thinks I should lie low and try to fit in, and is constantly battling against Adrian, in fear that someday someone *coughmyparentscough* will read what Adrian's tempted me to write and ship me off to a nuthouse.Jennifer the house cat
- The voice of calm and reason, she gives the best advice of the lot. Though she tends to play it safe when it comes to decisions, she is the one who points out different points of view to me and helps me keep my cool.Candi the hummingbird
- My inner fangirl, Candi's the one that has me obsessively watching episodes of any of my many obsessions. She keeps with her an encyclopedia of knowledge from each fandom, all of which is useless to do anything with but rant to others who may or may not understand. She tends to go off on tangents at random moments.Red Fox
- I have no name for the fox, and am unsure of it's gender, though I think it may be a girl, so from now on I will refer to it as 'she'. She is my spirit guide, whom I saw on a guided meditation period. Though she does not talk, she is expressive through her eyes and body movements, and often leads me to answers I already knew, but may have been too stubborn to accept. Though she takes a backseat to the others, I look to her when something truly pressing comes up, and it is her guidance that I trust the most.
