...a beautiful lie.

--

My OC, Rykier. He's one of my oldest OCs (I've "known" him for over 7 years). He's one of those always smiling characters, who comes off as really lighthearted and carefree and is always trying to make everyone else around him smile too, but underneath it all is a very broken person. Out of all my OCs, he has the darkest past, and he carries a lot of guilt and regret over past events. I wanted to draw a picture of something other than the facade he presents to the world, and delve a little deeper into his "true self".

This also serves double duty for the 100 themes challenge I'm doing with another artist friend. This is theme 26: tears!

Ry is from the fantasy world I have written several books in -- he and his story are copyright to me.

also, I wanted to draw a more "monochrome" pic for this, his skin isn't really that...grayish. But the limited color palette is a reference to the first book's original title: Monochrome Sky. The title has since changed though.

Emotional. Although the colors are limited, it's effective. :nod:
