Hold on to your SELF by MediaViolence Hold on to your SELF by MediaViolence
Younger version of this guy:



Ixil and his brother are slime monsters but they were raised by a human "mother" so they try to keep a human form since thats how they see themselves.
Keeping any solid form takes a great deal of concentration on their part so if their emotions or thoughts falter, they start to break down...

I'm really fascinated by that kind of work where the character sort of takes form with the emotion that engulfs him (like here ; a picture "dripping" refers to sadness). But seeing the description, it's not that metaphorical ! But that's a nice creative idea for non-human characters (yet, I haven't seen anyone with that kind of idea for an OC)

Either way, I love it !

I've got someone but frankly there are some works I'd be honored for you to color. Even if they're ass in comparison to your own.

Oh, you want me to color your inks? I might be able to work a coloring job in as long as it's nothing too complex. Drop me a note with some info and the lines you need colored and we can talk yeah?

codyrush Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Student Filmographer
That sounds fantastic! But I don't have anything inked or even sketched yet. Again, it would be immeasurably squee inducing to have you agree to color something I inked, but I won't waste your time if it's so pressed. Not for a job that probably won't be inked for give or take at least three days maybe five. The character design isn't fully sketched yet.


I'll drop you a note if I have something soon, though. Thanks for the offer!

I really love your slime boys. The usual picture for slime creatures are pretty hentaish, but I can't acurately express how much I adore the emotion put into this. Into him. Don't we all feel like we're disolving when we break down into tears? I just, I can't. I absolutely love him.

Aw thank you! I hate sharing info on my OCs before I get their comics out there, but in this case I'm very glad I did because people like you seem to really get him:)

You're welcome. I feel the urge to go on a mega rant about how much I love your boy and why, but lets keep that in a pretty box and just ship it straight to him. I like the thought you've obviously put into him since you've had him for so long. He feels real.

I don't know what specifically it is about them that makes them so endearing, but I feel like they're the sort of characters I would love to read about. Maybe I'm weird, maybe I'm just getting old. But characters that 'break the mold', especially the bishi mold, and then make it into a new one are really special in my book. And that's what I think other people have noticed about them. At least, the people who looked deeper than just the pretty image on their screen.

Your characters are really pretty, but they're not the standard high school prince characters or golden hearted bad boys. They're different, and that resonates with a lot of people who feel like they're different too.

Aw, thank you! I never know if people think my boys are attractive or not because I tend to think they're not very pretty, so that's good to know! But like, when I work on a character the character comes first, the pretty? face comes second. Honestly one of my favorite things to do is think of the most unappealing character tropes I can and then try to figure out a way to make them likeable and relatable, if not always visually attractive.
I do feel kind of bad because a lot of my friends always try to look for the "golden heart" in my horrible characters and I have to break it to them that no, they really are awful, but the fact that they still like them doesn't make them horrible too lol.
I love talking about character development and designing and stuff, so if you ever would like to talk about it more indepth, feel free to drop me a note or email :)
