*minor spoiler alert ahead*

I wanted to draw Sam after Spike left him. He's heartbroken, worried sick about his best friend, and feeling a lot of guilt at the same time...
Saunders is trying his best to comfort his son, wishing he could fix everything and make Sam happy again, but he knows that it will take quite a while for Sam's broken heart to heal again.

...Not sure if these were actual spoilers, but... meh.

I was listening to a song that someone sent me in a note here on DA (you know who you are :meow: ). This lovely song ---> www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k28LW…
The more I listened to it, the more I loved it, and the more it reminded me of Sam and Spike..
I actually really like getting song recommendations :D so don't be shy with sharing songs you like with me, everyone :aww:

This drawing was drawn on A3 paper with a HB pencil and a 2B mechanical pencil, and an eraser ;) Then I scanned it and added colors in Photoshop.

.. and now I reeeally better head off to bed, because I've got work tomorrow ^^;

Always makes me sad to look at this pic.  Too bad Saunders did not find out about Charles and save Spike.  Saunders could have adopted him then.  But then you would not have a long story about Sam.  Just a short one with good ending.  I like your pics.  I think if you publish you really should use the characters in anthro form and include your drawings.

His friend left, or was he also his boyfriend?

no. sam was in love with him but spike couldn't cope with the fact that anyone could love him

or that love meant something else besides of his uncle's version of "love". spike left due to this.

Awww poor Sam. And Saunders is such a great dad being by his son's side to try and comfort him.

Ohmighosh the feels.

I love the overall style here, and the lighting is absolutely gorgeous.

Poor little guy... I hope he made it through everything okay.

I just had a girl tell she didn't want to be in a relationship with me, so on a lesser level I know the feeling, and I'm also 14

I wanted to say how sorry I am that you were turned down. It doesn't matter how many times you're told that you're still young, there's still loads of time to find someone... yeah yeah yeah you're thinking, it still hurts! Absolutely it hurts. I'm sorry that you're hurting. Part of life is learning to deal with rejection well, so try to take this as a learning point if you can. It won't stop it hurting, but it may mean that next time you're better able to deal with it. Stay strong! =^.^=

This is one of the most emotional scenes I've scene, I've loved for a long time!
WelshCrevans's avatar
Wow, that emotion is crazy.
Sam and Spike are the only two characters I've ever cried for (and I read A LOT), and now they break my heart not just in writing, but in imagery.
Your art is nothing short of amazing.
