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.

Oh wow this is sure a interesting to see Muzai looks like he has been hiding his spot and that's why he doesn't want no one to know about his spot or is probably something happens back in his past or as I said in the first one  something about his spot he doesn't want to tell anyone about it or something they called imperfection.

It really to shows his expression to tell something about it in he's past.

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. ;)

This is exactly what his spots represent! :dummy: I'm glad someone was able to figure it out.

siathedragon Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

An excellently composed picture! It is quite striking!
I'd like to see a full body pic of him... and his backstory.
...of course, I've been scouring your gallery for every bit of backstory that I can find...
Red-Dragon-Blaze Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
he seems like he ould be intresting to draw
CressLuna Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Looks really beautiful but it has that sad tone too.. which makes me feel a bit sad... but overall an amazing piece of art! I like his design too, as far I can see of it.

Mmhmm I think the spots represent the truth, he might be hiding his view towards the truth since though it is true, it can be painful too. I think he might prefer the softer 'lie' then facing the hurt of the truth, thus hiding his right eye... that's what I think ^^
Glowy-Pop Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He looks a lot like Solna...O.o Perhaps the spots mean some sort of secret, or for every spot he gains, another dark secret?
Dr-Wolves Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Digital Artist
He is kinda cute! This was done in two hours??? only??? You truly are amazing.

you should do a full body pic!
Dr-Wolves Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Woops never mind about the full body pic!
shocka123 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Hmmm............ His name means innocence....... So that means the coming of age? The spots must mean that he is growing up and as he grows up his innocence get's lost further on and the more spots he gains?
Bryne-Lasgiathan Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
An indication that not all is as it seems... he is showing a beautiful lie, and hiding the painful truth. There is sooooo much that can be interpreted into this image! Great job!
Casirethedragon11 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

alphablackpaintball Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013

BlueDragonsBum Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Writer
I'm just gonna say this is beautiful.
Is that ok?
laurel-tree Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
I'm gonna guess that the spots represent... the truth? Like, how the spot seems to be on his right eye, and eyes represent what is seen, or in other words, the "truths" of this world, in probably a negative way because the spots are black. The spots could also be seen as vaguely eye shaped, maybe they even turn into eyes in some crazy way. Thus, he is covering his eye to hide away from whatever evil truth he has seen that may have corrupted his innocence, which is represented by the uncovered, bright blue left eye, because the world is made of both good and evil truths.

But by covering his spot to protect his innocence, in his desperation to be spotless, he is denying both a part of the world and a part of himself (literally, a body part), resulting in unhappiness (his sad expression and grey color) because he can never truly be fulfilled?

I might even go off on a slight tangent and comment on the large size of his ears representing a different way to view the world (by hearing rather than sight).

AzaratheDragon Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Student General Artist
His spots could mean the black or darker spots of a less innocent self? Maybe did something that counters being innocent?
doragon-hane Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmmm I get the impression that his personality may have a few dark patches or 'spots'
Notforart Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013

MAYBEEE he has i don't know 'black spots' in his personality/soul that he wants to hide from everyone? JUST A THOUGHT
but yes asjdhfkl you bet I'll draw him one day HAHA >833 :iconamgtouchplz: :heart:
owlity Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
He is absolutely lovely. I'm digging the dark atmosphere!
ShalomShiloh Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist
Innocence. I like that.

Probably because I feel sad and want to help anyone who I see that's going through some kind of pain. A sadness. I guess because I've been through so much of it through my life. Anyway, it looks as if there's a spot on his right eye, the one that's covered. Or he's been hit in that eye and doesn't want anyone to see it. I don't know. The first thing that got me was his expression and the swept back ears, the nose, the mouth. The mood grabbed me. At first, I thought you made vent art and wanted to read the description just to make sure you are doing fine. But this guy is your character.

If you want any sort of critique for this, here. I won't say anything about the shading since this was a quickly drawn picture. It does look nice and the background fits the mood quite well. One downside is that his arm looks like it is floating there, or if it is coming from the camera.

aww he looks rly sad D: i dont like it when people are sad or crying
RogueDoodler Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
By 'spotless', and taking into consideration that he is innocent, it means he's pure of any nasty sin. He's clean. Spotless. :)

Ah bas il était temps que tu le sorte de Tumbl et que tu le montre ici Mumu, T'aura mis du temps en effet. Excellent expression, et moi je m'en fou parceque je connais son histoireeuuuuh xD. Sinon oui, full body pic asap, parceque nous, ceux de tumbl on connais son corps, mais les gens de DA non. Donc, montre leur ^^
shy-robot Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm i had an idea, maybe the young dragon had markings, maybe he did look good, however maybe he started to go a little mad, so made he started terrorizing others. Now he realizes what had happened, and is starting to loose his markings because of it. Now all he has left is a scar, or spot over his right eye, a scar that represents evil, and impurities. Now all he wishes is to be spotless, and to discover the hidden realities of the world.
