Alert Emote Trigger Warning: Cutting, self-harm, suicide, blood. You've been warned.

Over the waves peaceful at night
There among the stars glowing in the dark
You watch over me
Smiling down patiently

I realized it will take me about more than 2 weeks to finish the 6th character for the Six Fanarts challenge, because of new life adjustments... 'ya know...a new job and a new place. This week is training week by the time this is posted. So, I've queued this submission of this traditional art I made last year to at least be more active here. Hurray for posting something NOT digital art~!lardgrinn woo Yay for uniqueness, I guess~ I am a dummy! 

This was something I drew back when I was struggling pretty bad in college :paranoid: -- getting a terrible final grade, having terrible roommates, friends leaving me, peer pressure, question of faith...mostly about the last one. Sin and conviction, in faith to be exact. I dunno man Shrug ...the religious organization I joined in college made me think of self-loathing shit...that I'm a sinner and that nothing I do will make God happy or whatever. Hah :lol: There's a reason why I left that organization. They fed me good food, though; so, I'm very thankful for them taking care of me. But, I didn't appreciate the overemphasis of sin and conviction in their lectures; it gave me too much anxiety and depression. I had a bad anxiety attack at one point from their retreat too :lol: . That's why I left.

Initially, I didn't want to post this on here, because I hate having to censor artworks I've done extensively to finish, especially artworks about depression. As much as possible, I don't want my works to be censored because of the details I meticulously include on my compositions. I changed my mind and decided to post this on here anyway, because it would be wasted efforts either way.

Also, please don't think that just because I post something like this it means I'm feeling sorry for myself. I'm fine. Meow :3 I'm going through things alright. I have coping strategies, networks, and peers to rely on. I encourage everyone struggling with their mental health issues to do the same. Aww
