Something made quickly in about 2 hours...

This makes me realize I never really introduced this guy on dA... I made this chara a few months ago and those who check my Tumblr might have seen him. His name is Muzai, meaning "innocence" in Japanese :XD: Tell me if you want a fullbody picture of him and I'll try to get one done.

This pic has a meaning behind it, linked to this little dude's personality and background story. And his design is far from being random aswell x3 I won't say what it means yet because SPOILERS, but feel free to comment with what you think the meaning behind this pic could be, I'd love to see your own version of it, those who will guess the right one get a cookie 8D It will help if you know Muzy's full design.
Edit: pssst little tip, think HIDDEN meaning, nothing explicit 8D The spots REPRESENT something, but what? Mysteryyyy....


Man I just love to draw eye expressions

Made with Paint Tool Sai.

It seems to me he is hiding behind a mask. He shows this by placing a paw over his eye, but more specifically his right eye, which appears to bare a large dark spot. Because he does this, I believe this spot (and therefor the rest) represent his imperfections; Such flaws he might think others would shun or inflict harm on him for. As for the large spot's location, perhaps it symbolizes something he witnessed or at least had full awareness of. Maybe it was something in his past. Something which went wrong. Maybe it lead him to self-hatred or overwhelming guilt, which he shrouds from the present reality and those who dwell in it. His name means the absence of sin after all, so wouldn't it make sense that he is seen this way? Perhaps each passing day the weight becomes to much to handle and his patience wanes more and more. His right ear may be the perfect metaphor of that. It's clipped. Perhaps he earned it from a fight or a common accident, but the fact that it has not healed shows that there was no energy for the healing process. Maybe the same could be said about this character's self-esteem. He might play it off cool and casual after being knocked down, but perhaps he dreaded growing new spots and being "imperfect". Such internal conflicts are to be expected with great protagonists and this guy may be one of those.  

Awesome work Shrimp. ;)
