I drew a thing! Huzzah!

It's been a while since I've drawn much of anything. Probably close to a month at this point. Honestly, you probably know me by now: of course, I want to get back to it. Like nothing else! But depression's kind of a bitch, and it's hard to stay motivated right now. That doesn't mean I'll just stop trying to what I love though. And this isn't even about the comic right now. I just want to draw anything at this point, really.

In this case, I happened to try out the Danganronpa V3 demo the other day, and decided it was as good a subject as any to work with. So here we have protagonist, Kaede Akamatsu, because I figured she'd be the easiest to safely look up a reference for (let's just say I've had problems with getting major spoilers for previous Danganronpa titles when I just wanted to look at a little character art, so this time I was trying to be more careful). Kaede might not have otherwise been my first choice to draw, but she was a fun - if simplistic enough - character design to work with for trying to get back into drawing.

I also got kind of experimental with shading. I don't really have an eye for that kind of thing though, so it might look terrible; I hope it's somewhat decent though. (And the background is just pulled from the game itself to give her a backdrop; I didn't make it.)

Either way, I hope you like this. I'm not ready to get back to routine comic posts, but I'm hoping to at least get back to drawing in general more again. I'm sure doing something I love at a steady, non-stressful pace could do wonders for me. So hopefully, we'll see more drawings and doodles in the future, until I'm ready to return to comicking.

So thank you again for bearing with me during this time. Your support is, as always, very welcome and means the world to me right now. :)

Not Rain?

I first thought you draw later Rain on the university (and gone through HRT), just another hairdo. Was kinda fitting for me and cute.

Funny thing btw that I started my HRT some days ago too. :)

And I know how depressions can suck, so it is totally fine.

Silver Rain (Guest)

Thank You.

Hi, I don't know how appropriate this is nor where I ought to say it but.. I wanted to inform you that I've been reading your work since a couple years ago (took a long break however when you were in hospital for a while and always meant to come back) and ever since the first night I stayed up til 5am in the morning reading Rain, I wanted to thank you for helping me realise that I too am trans.
I have been doing wonderful and life has got fantastically better ever since..

In the process of choosing names, I ended up resting on the name "Silver Rain". Rain was coincidental but did make me smile when I figured it out.
So I like to say it's honouring you for helping me out indirectly.

You are amazing and I admire you. <3
Please keep being you.

_Silver

This may seem insignificant compared to the other comments, but I gotta say that I'm in love with that skirt! The shading is pretty great, so I don't think you should worry about it either.
