I am not Worth of Your Love

Posted Mar 5, 2020, 1:31:35 AM
Drawn during the whole night of February 10th, 2020.   Don't we all have those moments in which we feel sad, lonely, depressed, and think nobody should love us and that we only deserve to be unhappy?   [This gets super serious, warning.] (I wrote that when I submitted it on DeviantArt, so on February 12th.)   I will be an hypocrite and tell you that "you deserve all the love and support of the world"; even if myself tend to think I do not deserve any of that (but it's mostly my messed up brain's fault). Yeah we all have our bad times, and you have to tell yourself that you personally, just like everyone else, have, will have and are worth having at least someone in your life that will hold your hand, look at you tenderly and tell you they love you.    Damn. That hurts a bit, since I have just realized how lonely I feel, in this tiny room in my residence. I literally have no friends, and maybe this is what makes me feel so sad. Welp.    I mostly relate with that little Magolor, who I picture as mostly anxious and low-mood (the CROWN didn't help his mental health...), and it comforts me so much to ship him with Meta Knight, whom I see as a shy, cold with the mask, but as a loving, empathetic (despite not amazing social skills) partner who would try his best to make his adorable boyfriend feel better. Of course he also has his rough times (remember what happened in Planet Robobot? He does too), but for now, it's the egg who needs help.    Enjoy! It took me more than 6 hours to make it, and I'm really proud of the final result. I like this new "manga" shading style, it looks super neat! I've done another piece with that style (the day following that one... whoops), and I will try to make more of it in the future!

    I'm sorry you feel lonely. It can be hard to go through life feeling so isolated. You do have your Paperdemon family here to support you though.

    I see you requested a critique so here I am!
    Welcome to Critique Thursday!

    The cell shading style came out pretty well. I think my main comment would be about composition.
    The characters are really close to the bottom edge of the composition which creates a sense of "tension" in the viewer which probably wasn't desired.

    I suggest either adding more whitespace around the characters or cropping in closer on them. I'd also suggest using the "rule of thirds" to help you with your compositions.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have questions!
