-shapeshifter-- second attempt by oomizuao -shapeshifter-- second attempt by oomizuao
my second attempt on drawing this:

I kinda like this one the most, although I sort of like the atmosphere in the previous one too..

I was originally going to name this and the previous deviation "My Guardian Demon", but I remembered I already have a sketch somewhere with that title. Still, that's how Spike sees Hatred. Not as a guardian angel, because Hatred isn't always, or hardly, a kind person. Thus, demon. And shapeshifter; here he's probably in his more unfinished form, since he lacks his greasy, black hair, and his eyes aren't that terrifying now.
Spike is scared of Hatred, at the same time as he keeps him company and protects him.

I won't babble too much about these two just now. :P

but I hope you guys like this new version :aww:

(man, it feels nice drawing something dark, after having made so many happy and colorful drawings lately :XD: )

I would say that my inner demons aren't as Hatred; the worst they've done is make me slack off when doing work. They made me lazy is what I'm trying to say lol. Anyways, I've already axcepted these demons as a part of me and embraced them as my hidden, veiled family. These inner demons are Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Lust, Envy, Greed, and Pride; the 7 deadly sins. Of course, they aren't the evil sins most of you may know; they are the more positive versions of the sins. Why that is, is simply because I was able the bring out the good in them instead of the evil like most people.

Love the expressions, especially the more "brooding" posture of the one sitting.

Your art is absolutely outstanding! You manage to say so much with so little, both with literal art and your words (the Spike novel). I hope it does get published, because I will be the first one to buy it :)

Reminds me of Kyo's "other form" from Fruits Basket.

Love the dark atmosphere of this!

I like this one better too, I think it's more of your style anyway :D And yeah, same; sometimes you want happy cutesy things and sometimes you just want dark.
FaithStarLight Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love this! The details are amazing, and I love the textures too :D Very scary concept :D

I don't know... I think I like both equally

It's awesome. I love the detail how he breathes out the air and you can see it :3 Awesome work, the expressions say it all <3

very very VERY cool. i think i like the darker version of this. The colour definitely lends even more to the awesomely drawn picture. that large, scary looking wolf is really well done .

Agreed, the drawing is better in this one but the ambience was more mmm dark? rough? intense? in the previous one. Anyway, they are both nice and as all this sort of works from you, I find it unexpectedly comforting. Thanks for sharing!
amziss Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I like this one more, It gives a more detailled and clean look because of the LineArt.
maybe A miss a bit of red, or something that stands out.
Really nice oomi!!

You're still my nr.1 fave artist on DA ^o^
Not just because of your drawing skills, but the unique and special characters you create. And there story's
And you are just a nice person ;3

well done

This is too awesome for words.
ImpDynasty Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
I really like the comic book look this second version has. Great job. =)
MusicOverload Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Personally I like the first one better, but I also like this one. Its lighter, which makes me think that even though with these colors it should be 'happy' its actually not, just like Spike pretends to be okay when he's not.
PinkuKen Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
I think the other one is more beautiful, but I also think that this version serves the picture better... I like both so muuuch but cuz I really like all creepy and twisted stuff, this maybe is more like something I think it should be : ) I really hope I did tell it cleary, sometimes all I say sounds a big weird mess :XD:

This is amazing, I watched your livestream the other night!
Arashi-taichou Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I really like how this came out. Its dark and drastic and Spike's expression, in my opinion, makes this drawing.
PhanThom-art Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really love this dark kind of stuff, this really is an amazing drawing. The werewolf looks really creepy, you did an amazing job on that. I do see your point in liking the atmosphere in the other one better, but I still think this version is better because the details are more clearly visible and while the atmosphere in the first version might be slightly better I also really like it in this one because the color palette is something different. The black and red is a bit overused I think, so the color palette in this one with the natural shades like the green and brown really make this one unique and stand out from the first version.
Winterwolf09 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I really like this one. It speaks to me cause I know spike feels about this demon being the only thing you can talk too.
richardtorres21 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student General Artist
yaaay dark stuff :DD and its ok to draw happy colorful drawings cuz it seems like you have been in that sort of mood, but it also seemed kinda idk false? cuz you put up that one deviation of you wearing that shirt and then for a few weeks afterwards your deviations were really happy and it just had me a bit confused. i have an update too on the kids who bullied me :DD im really really really happy too!

I like this one better, I like the breath.
RichTheWolf257 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Meh. I like the original one better. Still, THis is pretty good.

FoxeeLaLa Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
This one is much creepier than the other one!
HM-Dragon-Dreamer Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student General Artist
I like this verson better too! Something about the texture or the color, I think, it just makes it look darker and cooler.
xxUNICORNRAINBOWSxx Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student General Artist
I agree with you that the atmosphere in the first was better and more inviting.. no defiantly not the right word.. um.. effective for the pictures message i think :D great work as always
JinxedWitch Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student General Artist
I prefer the other one because of the red haze/light :P Still VERY good though :D
Caldwin Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I actually prefer the other one. The atmosphere was better I think...darker, meaner. The lines were more subtle...looked more eery. This one almost looks like a comic book cover interpretation of the other one. Not that that's a bad thing! I just like the atmosphere of the other one better. MHO.
TheRogueFurry Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think this oneis better. The other may be more colorful, but the definition in this one helps portray the emotion better, I feel.
GhostReach Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Student Artist
i rather the first one but this is also an amazing job.
katyspuppy Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
this on is better and might i say.. its very good work
Nyrhai Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I prefer this one, the hard lines make it more agressive :D
JJNeeps Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Professional General Artist
I like the first one better..the dark colours, the red background, the shadows everywhere..makes it feel more raw, more passionate. Isn't that what hate/rage is? This one feels more clean, more focused. Not that that's a bad thing. It's perhaps like a manifestation of the first if Charles had just had his way with get the first image (the demon looks like Charles but not quite)..then after festering in his hate for a while you get this clearer image...his hate is Charles..

Both are beautiful. I just love the dark colours of the first one. That's all. (^___^)
J-Harper Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Honestly, I like this one better.
