Basically the idea behind this picture is simple enough… Azra’s an admitted animal lover. He’s not really super open about this fact, simply because, as an animal lover, people would expect someone who feels so passionately about animals to probably have a bunch of them, right? But Azra doesn’t own any. For the simple fact that it breaks his heart every time they die, and most animals don’t live very long, as opposed to Azra who lives, well as a vampire, forever. So he’s already dealing with the heartache of humans having relatively short lifespans in comparison to his own, but all these mini-heartbreaks along the way of something as selflessly loyal as a dog he just can’t stand to stomach.
Well, it looks like the artist calendar is finally dead. I’m not entirely upset about it — I mean, yeah, I’m sort of bummed that the project didn’t come together this year as it would have normally, but I’m slightly glad of it.

Ah, the lives of our characters and their backstories.
Just wanted to share with you some of the in progress pictures I have for my work “Wounded”. This is less of an overall in progress chart and shows more of the steps I went through to finalize it. I thought by picture 3 I was done — but something felt off about it and I wasn’t sure what, so I sat on it for about a week before deciding to go back to it. I was glad I did! Adjusted a lot of things, added a lot of others, and overall made a stronger piece. After picture 3, you can see all the colors I tried out before finally settling on the final one.
