Secret Keeper by Checker-Bee Secret Keeper by Checker-Bee
took a little break from FZB work and drew this :)

Ever since I drew that creepy girl picture a while back, I've been trying to develop a story around her. While brainstorming, the idea of a being (or beings...not sure yet) who guards one's deepest (and maybe darkest) secrets in exchange for a piece of their soul. The Secret is part of your soul and when the Keeper extracts it from you, it takes the form of a blue butterfly. The darker the butterfly's blue, the darker (and more expensive!) the secret. (this is based off the part of Greek mythology that says butterflies are a symbol of the soul.)
The secret keeper(s) has no soul of its own, so it tries to piece together one from the bits of souls they receive. You have to make sure this secret is really worth it, because it is incredibly difficult to get the piece of your soul back from the Keeper. and, Keepers are very much Rational Hedonists, meaning they are mainly concerned with pursuing what will benefit them the most. So if someone comes along seeking your secret and makes the Keeper a better offer, guess who's gonna spill the beans! However, Keepers are incredibly wise and are not easily tricked, especially by foolish humans. So the deal has to be really good in order for your secret to be sold.

Do you trust the Keeper with your deepest secret? Just how desperate must you be to sell a piece of your soul to keep it safe? ....and just who is under that hood? Nobody has ever seen the Keepers face.

idk why, but I've been getting better at darker stuff lately. But I'm not depressed by any means! I'm actually really happy lately! :D I guess I just like drawing dark mysterious stuff! :P

(and no, it's not supposed to look like a demontor. that was just a coincidence I noticed just now. Keepers are quite different than demontors in that they can talk and have reason...just to letcha know :))

Drawn: Originally in pencil, edited with Sai
Time: 1 hour and 30 mins

what would u like to learn to draw? If u want to get better, a good place to start is with copying or tracing to get the muscle memory and instinct. there are also a lot of really good tutorial books :) But doodles are awesome too :)
