Tagged to do Bear, who is not an actual bear, so here goes


1. I created Bear from a vague image of some monster in a dream I had. Don't remember much, but it was very fluffy and had a red face.

2. Though Bear seems to be resistant to most sort of physical non-supernatural attacks, or they at least don't hurt him as much, he does seem to be weak to stakes, which are most commonly used to kill vampires. They slow down his healing, and hurt a shit ton. The reason for this is because the demon specie he turned into is a bit similar to vampires - except they suck souls instead of blood.

3. He is best friends with Iahhel (DirectorLazulis character), who is, ironically, an Angel of the Lord. They met during a mission where Iahhel had been sent to investigate and kill him, but they ran away together after a conflict with hunters.

4. Bear was named Bear by Iahhel the same evening they met. Iahhel was also the one who shoved a stake into his side after Bear got hungry and tried to eat him. Healed him afterwards, though.

5. Bear likes to curl up like a cat when he sleeps, and tuck his hands under his chest and mane to keep them warm.

6. I once drew Bear in a nurse outfit.

7. He does have eyeballs, the eyes are completely black so they can't be seen, except for the occasional shine of a reflection. He used to have relatively bad vision as a human, but he can see extremely well now - and he can see almost as well in the dark as in the daylight.

8. He secretly loves his nickname.

Hello again :'D

Please don't worry, I'm not rushing you for the commissions, I know that life can really get you down and make drawing impossible Orz
I was wondering though, that if you haven't started on them at all, that would it be possible to change the subject character? I have unfortunately dropped out of the group which the character I originally commissioned belongs to, so if it's not too difficult and if you haven't started on anything yet, would it be alright to change it?

Let me know if you are<3
istaria-fan Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
oh, uh, thats going to be a lil difficult, as im about 30% finished on the 5th picture actually :0

if you want to, i could change the two last pictures subject character?
kuroya-ken Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh! Oh I see, that's totally fine with me^^ please continue that 30%!

Though yes, the last 2 pics, if you're ok with it, can you change it to this? Svass 15793

He's my tokota and I'd love to have it be activity images for him ;u;
The theme would be the same: just a picture of this guy looking around searching for stuff in any wilderness background (exploring, basically). It's adamant that he has a golden ring on his toe that has a red string which links to outside of the picture (imagine that it's connected to the rider/handler outside of the shot, basically :'D), if that's alright?

Let me know if this is ok ;u; if you can do this, it would be most amazing and help me loads<3
