Is it? by Mysteltain08 Is it? by Mysteltain08
I'll always remember the first time we've met, we became close. You used to be a friend who I can count on, someone who I can open up to without the need of judging and doubting. Now you've become distant, I've had my times of doubt. I now become hesitant talking to you. I had to ask myself "What if? Can I? Should I? Will it be alright?". I miss those times when we talk and I never had those thoughts and be confident being myself. Now you only talk to me when you don't have anyone else, as if I'm a back up, a filler of your empty space.

Now I think... The person I met, used to be with, the one I missed. That kind, gentle person, or as I sometimes refer to as a lamb. Was that really who you are? Or were you just pretending all along?

Your mask, it looks so real.


A product of depression..
Don't ask who that fucking person is.

:( *hugs* On the plus side, the way you've turned pain into such a beautiful work is astounding, and it's so nice that you found a creative outlet for it. On the other hand, while I love the piece, I wish it didn't exist because then you wouldn't be sad. :(

I hope you're feeling better now, sweetie. Love you lots. :heart:

Honestly, I'm happy it exists because if I've never drawn that picture then the negative feelings would've piled up which would lead me to exploding.
I'm feeling a bit better, though the feeling comes in from time to time, especially when something triggers it, like people, pet peeves, dA's front page (lol) etc.
I love you too Thalia, I'm happy you care. :> /hugs

Oh yes, definitely. I meant that I wish you didn't have the feelings at all so you wouldn't have to let them out. :heart:

I know how you feel, about the triggering. *hugs* Things like that...they're hard to deal with. I was hurt by someone I loved, and two and a half years later, I'm still trying to get over it. Let me know if you ever need to talk, okay? I'm always here for you. :3

And Merry Christmas! :heart:

Me too. It's all currently ups and downs. But whatever may happen, it makes me stronger and wiser at least. So I'm a bit frustrated yet thankful. Pretty much having mixed emotions.

I know you understand me. We're facing this. It's actually more painful than breaking up in a relationship, since friendship is a deeper bond. Of course. :heart:

Merry Christmas to you too. :>

You'll come out stronger; I hope that thought helps with the rough times. <3

I've never been in a romantic relationship, but I agree with you. Friends share so much more, and you usually go through so much together. And when they hurt you...well, it hurts.

Feel better. :3 Love you again!

I sure hope so, especially hoping I won't break down and cry.

True. Sure breaking up can be draining but it only last for a few months. Friendship can take more months or even YEARS.

Thank you Thalia, I love you too. :>

Out of my strange curiosity, may I know how it is disturbing to you?
And thank you very much, both for the fav and comment. It's nice to see I can still make people happy and love my works even thoguh it is a product of depression.

Hello! I'm very sorry that it took me so long to respond to your message; I had a few final papers due for school and only finished with them recently. But in any case, I find this image disturbing because of the seamless way that you were able to meld together human and animal characteristics. By blurring the usually distinct line between the two, you've made a pretty interesting but also discomforting critique as to what exactly determines human life, thoughts, and desires. And so the fav is very well deserved! Human-animal hybridity is something that I'm fascinated by, and this image does a good job of exploring it :nod:

It's alright, I don't mind late replies since people cannot be on the internet 24/7.
I appreciate that you find it disturbing in a good way, I guess. It was almost exactly how I wanted my work to turn out.
(Not including the furries) I'm fascinated by it as well, it's good for symbolism.

"A product of depression." Yeeeeaah, I could sense that with the first glance... Geez, must've been a bad day to take a sheep's head and put it on. *making bad jokes again*
Whatever, I think it's great. The coloring is more rough than usually. I mean, you can see where the brush has been moving quite clearly and it really fits this one. Gives quite the strong impact. The red color really makes its stand here. Yup, its great. :)
Btw, I've been thinking about doing a similar kind of work myself, and by similar I mean it would include a mask in it.

My mind's all blurred out with anger and sadness that I just want to talk about the artwork.
What about the first glance? Were my feelings obvious?
Omg you're so mean, making fun of my misery, I'ma buhlock you nao. Hehjk. But your joke did make me chuckle. So thanks both for making me smile a bit, the compliment and good comment.

Fantasy stuff?

Sorry to hear that. I can assume you've had a rough week.
Well, when I first saw the work I could see that it had a rather dark feeling to it and I know that you sometimes like to make art based on your feelings.
Ohmagerd, ima so sowwy. D:
No probs. Thought you needed a good comment.

Yah. Fanart based on a series I was going nuts 'bout in my last journal entry that no-one took interest in. :')

Not just a week, rough month/s.
I see, you know me too well man. /bro hug
No, no excuses, you are to suffer in a room full of faggets wearing a mask that looks like Justin Beiber.

I see, I bet that'll look interesting. I actually check your works when you upload them and when I'm not too lazy to browse my inbox, I see improvement.

I'd be torturing myself way worse before they could do anything, sis. *not impressed*

That WOULD look interesting, more like. Dunno if I'm going to do it anytime soon.
Thanks. I appreciate it. I don't receive much comments on my works, though.

Thank you.

We all go through these times. This is a bit worse than what I usually feel though, since I had to draw something to relieve myself a bit. And I do agree, I never expected my work to get 47 favorites and 331 views in less than half a day.

And thank you, good luck to both of us.

I see, it's just odd that a random deviant would ask as of why I'm depressed.
But my sincere apologies because I can't tell you. I only opened up to one dear friend about this problem. The only clue you have for now is the picture itself.

I guess that makes me at least glad, that I'm able to answer your question. It surely does, I just tend to be really sensitive sometimes.. or maybe often. Thank you for your concern and advice, it's greatly appreciated, but come what may, there are things that are meant to happen and there are those that're not.
