Why do you have to be so strong by MusicalBloodDrop Why do you have to be so strong by MusicalBloodDrop
Does this need a maturity warning?
Credit fav.me/d5zvh3n for the brick texture and fav.me/d2kht0k for graffiti textures; thanks, these were awesome.

This is fanart/comic type thingy for one of my fav. Youtubers, JackSepticEye! Apparently, he's therealjacksepticeye here on DA. It was kinda based off of two of his catchphrases, Speed is Key, and Like a Boss (which you can see the graffiti in the corner as the initials of that X3) - More like a warped view of those two as I've been reading Jekyll and Hyde as of late, and the whole Victorian era horrible romanticism and terror and bad conditions and fun stuff, so my brain just kinda threw up an idea and this was it.
Warning, TL;DR, this is brain mush: This is set in late 17-early 1800s Ireland, with AU Jack/Sean (yes, I used a real person as a base for an AU...I wouldn't normally do that, but it just happened Shrug ) as anywhere from 12 to 16. (since he was 16 when he got his ears pierced, and I used that. He also doesn't have facial hair here, so that's why I'm thinking younger) The premise behind it also ties into his Septic Eye. I haven't entirely decided because I'm wishy-washy and because he's a real person and because I kinda want his opinion X3 but either way, there is blood that comes from his left eye due to some lack of regular eye there. (Whether he has no eye and keeps it in a jar or if he just has a Septic Eye in his eye socket...I haven't decided) ANYWHO, the monologue comes from "Speed is Key" as a kind of catalyst to why speed IS key (does that make sense?) and from there, the title follows along with "Why do you have to?"...It makes sense in my head.

As for the art, this is one of my first legit tries for both a serious mini comic and a mostly black-and-white comic. I didn't set a vanishing point, and that's why perspective looks so bad in the second panel especially. (And I'm just bad at perspective; I can't quite eyeball it yet, as I have proved here) I tried to add in as many details to make him recognizable (and by many details, I mean his hat and his eye colour...), and I think/hope the texture came out alright for his hat especially. I've been really into making clothing folds lately, so I hope I did better this time.
I think that about sums it up! :D Hope he likes it, hope you like it, hope the aliens like it, hope the fossilized life on mars likes it. While we're here, go ahead and check out his channel! He posts twice daily :3 www.youtube.com/user/jacksepti…

I can help you if you want! I write a bunch of fanfiction and have my own original story/manga! But I've never done anything with YouTubers, though.

Aha~ I'd really love to take you up on your offer, but unfortunately, I'm a little bogged down right now.
If you're still willing in a few weeks, do you think I could ask you then? :D

Sure! I've got nothing better to do. Other than watch random cat videos and play horror games. XD
