Shaded fullbody comission for @thornshadowwolf! Thanks so much for comissioning me, this guy was an absolute blast to draw and I really enjoy his design.
Here is the second picture I did for my art class, much happier with this one, I was less nervous and I feel like I definitely was able to put the teachers input into it
SUPPOSED TO BE SIMPLE IT WAS JUST SUPPOSED TO BE AN ICON OF MY ADDISON S/I SPARKS BUT WHOOPSIES I FUCKED UP ON STEP ONE AND MADE IT VERY OVER THE TOP AND SUPERSPARKLED IT OOOOOPS
im still proud of this though, i kinda experimented with it :]

"you always pull your phone out in public and don't talk to anyone"
"if you cared, you would've heard me"

"why can't we touch you? we're your family."
RB and add your own! Remember that your mental illness does not make you any less of a person and no one should treat you as less of a person because of it. ✨
