It stings... by MATicDesignS It stings... by MATicDesignS
Once on IMVU, I created a furset that was supposed to be the embodiment of my depression. I always thought it was interesting to have a character that was almost always feeling the lows of depression. I guess I'm evil that way. :shrug:

Anyway, this is Toby, named after my partner for suffering depression like myself. :heart: Thanks to ImpieChan for suggesting I turn him into an actual character, otherwise I would have sold him off as an adopt.
Also cause Impie has a character Bonnie that we totally need to suss out.

Also enjoy the new shading style! It's just soft shading without my usual hard shading/ I might use it more often cause it's a lot quicker. :dummy:

Also remember a character I introduced named Joel? Yeah, forget about him. The person who wanted him made doesn't talk to me anymore, so his character has been dropped. Make way for Toby! He already has more character than Joel anyway...

That's sort of the look I was going for, he's got a lot of mental/emotional wounds. Though I have no idea why I drew him shirtless XD It's like a theme I run into with new male characters: first image, shirtless!
And thank you very much~

Just keep in mind it might be altered by the time you buy it, since I have to change either Toby's design or the IMVU skin in order to keep him as my character (since I don't want others stealing him). And honestly I prefer his design like this so I'll more than likely change the IMVU one.
And friends are always nice~

Well, he's not going to DIE, he'll just be shoved into the purgatory corner while I consider what my next move is.
He may or may not come back depending on the communication between me and the friend who actually wanted me to make him.

And thank you very much

Well. I hope you talk soon! I would love to see more of Joal. (Or take him for myself.) Anyways~ I might buy that fur. Its awesome. Plus I will have payment for the commission as well.

I wonder why people want Joel for themselves... you're the second person to imply taking him. Of course I wouldn't just let people steal my characters but you get my point.
But anyway, I'll probably alter the buyable version of this fur cause I don't want people to create fursonas by stealing it.
And sure, what commission did you have in mind?
Reply
:iconmockingx:
Mockingx Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh hun I wasn't going to steal him XD that's not in my character!
If you don't have anything to do with him, maybe you should just make a story with him In it.

So alter the buyable verson? What whould you do to change it?
As for the commission, I meant the ffirst one I ordered, the steampunk one. I has monyes for it soon.

He needs a personality before I can even consider a story. Unfortunately Joel didn't even get that far besides his appearance and one character trait. I wouldn't even know where to fit him in. So for now he's just being pushed aside.

I'm thinking just change the pattern on his skin, since that's all I really can change. I'm paranoid about this cause I've seen people buy these skins and directly use then as fursonas. They shouldn't do that cause they're other people's designs, but they do. That's why I need to change it.
And I dont think you've shown me what you want for a steampunk set yet.

Ah I see. That makes sense. Though on t pic you seem to have giving him a somewhat of a persona.

Yeah. I see people order art with the furs others make. Its aannoying to watch, but as long as they don't claim the design, guess it wouldnt be all that bad. I also sent everything via Skype. Remember?

It only appeared that he had a persona, he doesn't actually have a personality yet. I wanted some help since I don't know how to develop characters that are that dirty minded, but since I didn't have anyone to talk to he just sat there.

True, but even stating that it's "their fursona" is a statement of ownership, so it means that they're claiming the design as theirs. I just hope those people are smart enough to change it if they draw it, or get custom fursonas made.
And I don;t remember sorry, I searched my commissions folder but there was nothing there regarding a steampunk thing.

You should do this soft shade more often, BunBun, you did very well and I love it a lot! It looks so decent and clean, and also very soft for the eyes too. (Soft shading, obviously does that job XD) 
And the design is great too! With a few colours only, you made it look amazing as always :heart:
BWAH, YOUR ARTS WOMAN :la: -flails- Its too good to handle~

That's true. There was a time when I did only soft shading, but it looked like ass.
And now after doing it coupled with hard shading for so long, now my soft shading looks lovely :heart:
And technically black and grey aren't colours at all o-o so it's even weirder for me, cause not only do I tend to use more than 3 colours, but I use BRIGHT colours.

It looks fabulous though, Imma keep him <3

Thank you very much for the sweet sweet words Teckuh-butt :heart: :tighthug:

And bwahahah, I see what you mean. Not only the shading but the colours as well are new :dummy: 
Keep it forever mwuahahhah~ And you're welcome, you deserve it and wheeeeeeeeh I'd love to be squeezed like that :heart: :la:

Yeah, I'm aware this is pretty much identical to his IMVU design, so I'm thinking of either changing my design or changing the one in the shop.

And it's so flattering to me when someone actually likes my stuff enough to buy it~ Makes me feel happy :>

And thank you very much :heart:
