About this piece

The character on the left is my OC Luz. In my original story, he's husband to the OC that represents me,  So close by Kim-SukLey  They have  quite the quantity of children, but the most popular that I draw is Joshua OC Joshua - full body by Kim-SukLey.  Luz is the voice of positivity inside my head. As someone who struggles with  depression (yes, the real one, been to therapy, diagnosed and all) I find myself "talking" to him when I need some motivation to follow my dreams. There's no end to the amount of words to describe him, so for now, and because of the focus of this work, that is all I'll say.

On the right you have Link, specifically Time (Ocarina of Time), who was my main inspiration to start drawing when I was a child. We "met" when I was about 7 years old, and the irrational love I feel for him has done no else than grow. You could say he's my "muse".

I drew both Luz and Time together because I believe this painting was meant to reflect the two kinds of stories in my head,  ones that have only my OC and exist in this realm called Mirehliah, which no one has ever seen besides me, and then Link, a character meny people know, but yet have rarely seen through my personal glass. 

Again, if I were to tell what these characters mean to me, you'd assume me crazy.

I can hardly find a good definition for muse. What is your definition on "muse"?
