-Heartbreak- by oomizuao -Heartbreak- by oomizuao
*minor spoiler alert ahead*

I wanted to draw Sam after Spike left him. He's heartbroken, worried sick about his best friend, and feeling a lot of guilt at the same time...
Saunders is trying his best to comfort his son, wishing he could fix everything and make Sam happy again, but he knows that it will take quite a while for Sam's broken heart to heal again.

...Not sure if these were actual spoilers, but... meh.

I was listening to a song that someone sent me in a note here on DA (you know who you are :meow: ). This lovely song --->…
The more I listened to it, the more I loved it, and the more it reminded me of Sam and Spike..
I actually really like getting song recommendations :D so don't be shy with sharing songs you like with me, everyone :aww:

This drawing was drawn on A3 paper with a HB pencil and a 2B mechanical pencil, and an eraser ;) Then I scanned it and added colors in Photoshop.

.. and now I reeeally better head off to bed, because I've got work tomorrow ^^;

For everyone who had a dad who was not there or didn't care.

You know I've been wondering, where does your story actually take place? Did you ever mention that anywhere? Also because Saunders is Irish, I asked myself how far he is from there, and why he left this country :)

I feel the same exact way right now...

I was wondering. Is this set at the chapter 13/14 mark, "leaving him" being that he doesn't want to see him anymore? or is it sort of a teaser about what to expect in the future?

I ask since I remembered they were in the living room when Sam talked to his dad about Spike and this is set in the kitchen. Then there is the "...Not sure if these were actual spoilers, but... meh." I think it might be a teaser now that I've written this out. Which makes me even more excited to know what happens next if not more worried also Sweating a little...

This is so much sadder after reading the novel

I really don't like such "realistically" detailed anthropomorphic art, just a personal preference, but you have my complete admiration for this piece because it is, as evidenced by other commenters, possibly profound. You've captured a fragile moment of personhood disturbingly well, especially for fictional races. This is really excellent work.
TeppeKongen Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014
I like the realistically detailed anthropomorphic art.... She have drawn this so beatifull I have been staring at it for a very long time... But I shoudn't really comment this because you said it was a personal reference so I dunno why I am doing it right now...
Sowy : p

independentstate Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
I love this. I don't know why but I could just look at it forever; everything from Saunder's helpless understanding to poor Sam, to the little details like the piece of paper pinned to the corkboard showing that Sam is an A+ student, to the orange juice that makes me think Saunders poured that glass for Sam hoping it would cheer him up and then Sam burst into tears. I just love it, even the lighting and the glimpse of the yard through the window is perfect. I love these characters, and their father/son relationship makes me so happy :)
AngiePineda Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
Beautefoul!! Good effect whit lights! 
XeroSolace Featured By Owner May 14, 2014
This is almost to much to handle all at once. I thought Sams sorrow was full of emotion, but this... this combines both his sorrow and Saunders sadness... I really hope things work out in the end of the novel though. This is the only way I've been able to think of Sam since Chapters 14 and 15, and its painful to say the least. Amazing work as usual!
XeroSolace Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
The way your able to make your artwork touch all of those who view it is simply incredible. I have seriously never been able to read and feel emotions in artwork more than what you've done here, and in every other piece of work you've done, including your novel. Everything here has left perfection in the dust. Simply incredible, and again, good luck with your novel this summer. I cant wait to read it! :D (Big Grin)

(no wait it already has. i've already read all the chapters you've posted twice and i believe i cried each time. wow. go me. actually. gO YOU. YOU'RE A GOOD WRITER.) 
Sabi-Arts Featured By Owner May 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh god, why havn't I seen this before!? 
I love how things in the picture, like Saunders cup, and the grades in the background, tell a bit of how the characters are. 

I love that you get so much detail in it, must have taken a hell lot of time, also I feel so sorry for Sam :( </3
MadHatterPunk Featured By Owner May 6, 2014
That is heartbreaking, no pun intended. I mean I can totally relate to this personally.
myriddin-the-cursed Featured By Owner May 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
well....this caused quite a moodswing over here. I think I'll just cuddle up and be sad for the rest of the evening. ;)

The smallest details adds some of the greatest depths to this picture emotionally. It's so heartbreaking!!
KZ-jello Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
Whoa, this is really a beautiful piece!! Love how the orange sunlight is filtering through the window and highlighting the characters and setting :D Especially since the room is rather dim, the sunlight is just cast on them in a gorgeous way. You really capture Sam and Saunders's remorseful expressions perfectly :) And I just really like how you draw their clothing and the curtains, in the way that you can really see their clothy texture. Amazing work!! --On behalf of Project Comment, but mostly just because I'm a watcher. :)

This is way too sad... Oh goodness, poor Sam! Poor baby!!
(I only want him to be happy! To be happy with spike!)

I love how you have a "#1 dad" mug on the table! Such a small detail but I love it (:

I have always adored your work! And I adore your Spike story as well!
Is there any chance you'll be posting more chapters? Or how has trying to make it a book going? (I seriously would buy it in a heartbeat!)
autumnlatte Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
