The quote is by Flyleaf, from the song "There for you", which was the song that inspired this particular drawing. Listen to the song here --> [link] (this youtube video was the one with the best audio quality).
The quote is supposed to be something that Spike thinks. Or at least something very similar. He's starting to realize he hasn't been a very good friend to Sam, and that hurts..
psst... anyone recognize the piece of paper he's holding?
I decided to upload this in it's sketchy version. I could've put a lot of effort in making it look better, but somehow I feel this version is sort of clearer in its meaning, and that the rough feel sort of fits it. What do you think? o.o

Ray and Mercedes, talking about Ray's anxiety problem. Poor guy struggles with anxiety due to things that happened in his childhood, and is terrified of being alone or being abandoned. SPOILERS AHEAD: when Spike starts dating Mercedes' roommate, Lillith, Ray is afraid that he'll lose Spike as a friend since Spike is spending more time with Lillith. All this worrying causes him to have many anxiety attacks when he's left alone. He decides to talk to Mercedes (who he feels is sort of like a big sister to him) and get some advice on what to do.
so that's briefly what this drawing is about. I could tell more, to let it make more sense and have a lot more depth to it, but I'd just spoil things.... :c it'll make more sense when the novel is done

just realized I haven't drawn Gregory to you guys before (only on livestream sessions) and I've hardly submitted any drawings of Terrance..
So here's a drawing of them both! I mean, they are a couple after all And a silly couple ^w^ Terrance is all childish and fooling around, at the same time as he's very loving and affectionate. Gregory is very grown up, and tough, but really kind at the same time. He's been bullied all his life due to several things, but one of those things was his height. He loves Terrance though, but wants to keep it private, afraid of being bullied for his sexuality. Terrance is very proud of having Gregory as a boyfriend, but respecting Gregory's wish of keeping it private, they've only told Saunders (and Sam and Spike) about their relationship.
I think they're really cute together, especially because they're so different. I can tell you guys more about these two later if anyone's interested, but for now, this'll do.

Spike, sitting alone in the woods when a tiny bird appears. He looks at the bird with great envy, wishing he also had wings and the ability to just fly away from everything... Fly away from all the pain.
and, well, I'm kinda proud of this, because omfg I made a background!
so, um, yeah, I hope you guys like this

I bought myself a set of watercolor paint (in tubes), and just sort of played around with them on paper. The first attempt was just blending colors and doodling around. This is the second attempt I did. I haven't worked with watercolors in years, and as I remember I used to dislike watercolors... But now, I can honestly say I love them! I'll definitely use them more often
