Old one, from November 2006. Found it while searching for old drawings and remembered I never scanned this (Had to be in 2 parts). All pencil, pretty quick. The kind of quick where you throw lines fast and strong without regard for cleaness much as you just want it out. Added border in PS-CS2

Here's the story behind it, you interpret by yourself.

I did this at a time when I had hurt a very close friend, my best friend, with angry/jealous words. He stopped talking to me.
This was probably the day I was told by another friend "I don't know what you did to him but he's very upset, so I'm gonna ask you to not come by at all today."

Things eventually resolved and I got my friend back. Now, at that time I was heavily relating my life with the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Give it some thought, there's a lot of emotions in this.

I freaking love this. It makes me feel love and sympathy for him....
I miss feeling those feelings for him.

And I hate saying I feel exactly the same as this picture reflects.

I miss feeling anything for him too, when I was very into the fandom and I could "see" him everywhere in my life and relate a lot to him and Charlie. I must sit down and watch that movie again and try to see it the same as I did the very first time. He used to make me so happy. D:

He made me really happy. I used to spend all my time with him. He was there for everything. I remember when my ex asked me out, I cried when I said yes because I loved Willy and I felt like I was betraying him =( That's how I sort of drifted from him because I fell for my ex. After my ex broke my heart I tried to get back into Willy, but it had been 11 months and it just... wasn't there.

You have to learn that characters are always there with us. When we become authors they become part of our lives. But we can't mix both our personal lives with theirs, you can't let Willy interfere with your real life, only allow him to be there as support or inspiration. They don't belong to us anyway, only the ones we create ourselves do. Characters we love come to us and let us enjoy their presence for a while. They never really leave either, they just fade into another plane. They stop being such a priority. But all you have to do is call them and there they'll be right there and you'll realize he never left, you've just stopped thinking so much about him.

You know, I cried when Archie went and -killed- Robotnik to replace him with Eggman. It hurt me a little too much and it's worse when you love a dying character (Dying as in not having enough fans to keep him around for long) but I had to accept that's how reality is, but as long as I keep drawing and thinking about him he won't ever really die. :3

I try to bring him back up so he can hold me and just tell me it'll be okay, but I think some of my imagination died when I was with my ex.

It happens. When things hold us into reality we lose some of our fantasy world. I lost a lot of mine and I want it back. DX
I've had a lot of issues that have forced me to stay very well planted in reality. :/

I miss escaping into fantasy, it made it so much easier to bare.

I think growing up has something to do with it. DX

Yeah, I was wondering that too. Probably as that wasn't such a great time for me I just put it away and forgot about it until I found it yesterday.

That's true and makes absolute sense. On that note, I respect that though a cord may be struck, this pain was yours and credit that. My own experiences are not relevant, I feel I said too much already. Thank you for sharing it.

Does it count if it was almost 2 years ago?

Anyway, why?
