-Heartbreak- by oomizuao -Heartbreak- by oomizuao
*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 --->…
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 ^^;

What happened to spike? Im sorry for not knowing, i love these characters.

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.

Dang, the emotion on the characters and the tone that this scene is delivering is truly breathtaking. I feel very bad for Sam...

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 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 11, 2015
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.

For everyone who had a dad who was not there or didn't care.
Alagvaile Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015
You know I've been wondering, where does your story actually take place? Did you ever mention that anywhere? Also because Saunders is Irish, I asked myself how far he is from there, and why he left this country :)
RebellingLemming Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sorry to hear that! A great art.

I feel the same exact way right now...
Garvel-Waggleton Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I was wondering. Is this set at the chapter 13/14 mark, "leaving him" being that he doesn't want to see him anymore? or is it sort of a teaser about what to expect in the future?

I ask since I remembered they were in the living room when Sam talked to his dad about Spike and this is set in the kitchen. Then there is the "...Not sure if these were actual spoilers, but... meh." I think it might be a teaser now that I've written this out. Which makes me even more excited to know what happens next if not more worried also Sweating a little...

This is so much sadder after reading the novel

jpatterson Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I really don't like such "realistically" detailed anthropomorphic art, just a personal preference, but you have my complete admiration for this piece because it is, as evidenced by other commenters, possibly profound. You've captured a fragile moment of personhood disturbingly well, especially for fictional races. This is really excellent work.
TeppeKongen Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014
I like the realistically detailed anthropomorphic art.... She have drawn this so beatifull I have been staring at it for a very long time... But I shoudn't really comment this because you said it was a personal reference so I dunno why I am doing it right now...
Sowy : p
