Mute by gamera1985 Mute by gamera1985
She would have had everything for her, if that wasn't for those vocal chords she was born without. But she didn't let that stop her. When she was old enough (well, 12 year old, since she is quite clever), she created a program similar to Vocaloid [link] Now she can "talk" by typing what she want to say on her Blacberry (though I'm pretty sure she will soon adapt it for Iphones).

So, it's my first mute character... have to say it's pretty nice to imagine someone being just mute (as generally people are mute because they're deaf). Thanks for the person who gave me that idea, it is pretty neat.

As you can see, I used a new technic for coloring. I'm really happy about how the pants turned out, and I hope I can do as good in the next drawings.

Not all deaf people are mute.  Some try to talk.  Muteness can be the result of an accident or a genetic defect.  She may well hear clearly, its just that she can't verbalize.

I'm a mute who can make no more than horribe shrieks when screaming at the tip top of my lungs... and even the shriek is quiet.
I have vocal cords... they're just dysfunctional

"aw... why's that? D:" you said, in case you forgot over the month.
It's a very very long story, and it hasn't getten better. Let's just say my boyfriend is the only person who still loves me for me.

hahahaha. i'm pretty sure i already said this...but as much as i love your limbless or decapitated and mutilated chicks...
it's equally as nice seeing some more normal-looking characters. ^^
i've always loved the idea of simply mute people...not mute because he/she is deaf. there are also cases where people BECOME mute due to some sort of traumatic incident...
awesome coloring as always~ love the freckles + blush look. ^^

I like the idea - reminds me in some ways of Celty from 'Durara' with the speech box.

I have met a number of death people a few of which could talk, I have only ever met one mute person. That said I lover her belly, its NICELY toned. I am curious as to why people like to make red heads tan, considering most don't tan well at all.
