Don't Come Closer by raru-tan Don't Come Closer by raru-tan
You want to fix me, push me
Into your fantasy
You try to give me, sell me
A new personality

You try to lift me
I don't get better
What's making you happy
is making me sadder

In your golden cage, all I feel is
Strange, strange
In your perfect world, so
Strange, strange
I feel so absurd in this life
Don't come closer
in my arms forever you'll be
Strange, strange
Like me

Tokio Hotel ft. Kerli - Strange www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEOXiu…

Remember how I said I wouldn't use that new colouring style very often? I lied.
How have I gone this many years without using SAI's brush tool? OMG, I love digital painting now.

Anyway, this is a new OC, named Gwendolyn <3
She was born with the ability to manipulate and create fire, but she has very little control over it and her powers react with her emotions. She doesn't want to be seen as a monster so she has to suppress her emotions in order to be normal and not hurt anyone.
This song gives me so many feels for her :iconlazycryplz:

I don't really draw her much anymore. I'd totally like to draw her more often, but it's hard for me to come up with good concepts for her.

Gaaaaaaaahhh, that soft coloring is just mesmerizing. It gives this piece a real "dreamy" atmosphere, which really couples with her body tapering out like her hair (I love that effect, by the way). And poor Gwendolyn...D: Do you usually write down the stories for your OCs, or do you mainly keep it circling in your head?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, thank you! <3

Most of them I just keep in my head...I don't even understand how but when it's all in my head, its freaking awesome and could be made into a best selling novel with an award winning film adaptation featuring Johnny Depp as EVERY ROLE, BUT THEN once I write it down, it's soooooooooo awful that I'm ashamed to be alive, ahahahhahahahahhahaha //breaks down in tears ...SRS, though, story of my life. I usually only write their stories down if it's for a ref sheet bio, or if I feel like I might forget them. Gwen's story, I actually wrote out on my cellphone one night at like 3-4 in the morning cause I was having an episode or something, IDK, it was 3/4 in the morning what am I supposed to do? I'm afraid to look at it again cause it's probably really bad xD

This is a disgustingly long reply to a simple question, forgive me, Shinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

QUIET YOUR ANXIETIES, BECAUSE I LOVE LONG COMMENTS!!

In that case, though, I'm just going to have to hop into your brain. BLUE SKADOO, WE CAN TOO~ *leaps through ear*

But no srs, I'm sure you're better than you give yourself credit for. At least you've already got half of the formula down :'D Your concepts are always really awesome, and I'm sure you could write them well. I've really enjoyed the little I've seen of your writing :'D Besides, good writing can only take ya halfway; to me, it doesn't matter how well someone writes if the concept doesn't work/is weak. SO I BELIEVE IN YOU RARU.

3 AM IDEAS ARE THE BEST KIND, except when you only have a cellphone to agonizingly text your idea out on. At least for me, because I text. so. slow. XD;

Shin! No! It's not safe in there! You too, Blue!
Why do cartoon dogs just jump into my brain without permission, that's like, so rude, wow.
Way to set an example for the children! //brick'd

Haha, but if you ever wanna know anything about any character or the horrible things I plan to put them through, just ask xD

frehuifejgrgierfgjurwgvjerife thank you, Shinnnnnnnn! I totally agree with you on concepts being really important. Sometimes the cool concept alone can make you watch or read something that's horrible. I'll try to write more, maybe ; v ; Maybe Gwen's story I'll put into written form since it'll be easiest cause she's not involved with any other important characters.

Yeah, they can be pretty awesome! My mind only actually works from 1-4 am anyway. Ugh, same! And I drop my phone on my face a lot, pffft, but I have a feeling that's just me though.
