Ray - more than all smiles by oomizuao Ray - more than all smiles by oomizuao
Ray has previously been portraited as this happy fella who's always smiling. And while he is a sweet and nice guy, he is more than just 'all smiles'..
He has his struggles, things that would normally make it very hard to put on a smile.

I don't think I should write too much about Ray right now (don't wanna spoil things for the novel ;) ), just that I've been working more on him as a character, as a person, and I've dug deeper into his mind and stuff... He's grown to become one of my favorite characters that I have. I love writing about him. :aww: :la:


I hope you'll like this drawing :)
It's actually my very first deviation of 2013..! :o

And Happy New Year, everyone! :hug:


(also, yes, I know the pose and colors might look very similar to an earlier drawing I made of Spike, but I just wanted to do one with Ray as well :meow: )


art and character (C) Elise M. Syvertsen / oomizuao 2013

I love the perspective; he's so cool :D I'm confused though, what color are his eyes? I've seen them green like this, but also blue in some of your other drawings of him.

I love the way that you create such deep stories for each of your characters. It makes them seem so real and connectable. Although, Ray has to be my favorite of all of your characters as well. His story is a compelling one and I like to think I can connect with his feelings in some ways. Keep up the awesome work!

You know, looking at this and the kid version of him, I get the feeling that his headband is really important to him if he's kept it all this time.
Or I'm just overanalyzing things again :/
