TITLE: A Daily Reflection - Window to the Soul

COMMENTARY:

+

This one is a first, finally, with Bluboy interacting with the haunted mirror.
Each time he looks in there is always something different or new he sees.
In this case he is seeing himself through =lllaria's eyes. This is her sketch and design seen here: [link]

I've been promising a crossOver with her for so long. I thought this was actually smarter and was something more personal from her. I always wanted to show her talent somehow, and thought this was a perfect way to do that.

So go check her gallery out!!

you know what i really like? how the mirror shows him even when he's not facing it... i get that it's prolly cuz it's a haunted mirror, but it seems to mean so much more than that...

really like this one... it seems to be a darker reflection so it's like showing a different side of him... a side just like the him we see everyday and yet so much different...

lovely :heart:

You know what's strange? Is that whenever I look at one of your Daily's seperately from the 20 odd other deviation messages a day, I cant help but feel there is some underlying meaning to them.

And sometimes I can see them, sometimes I can't. Often I can tell there is something but can't put my finger on. I think thats what makes your art or special to me personally.

This is another where I can't put my finger on it. I see the cuteness, and I see the overlying meaning. But can't help but feel there is something more about it..

It's awesome how they leave me wondering..

K... I hope I don't ruin your feelings or interpretation on this, I like that viewers can get what they want to see out of my comics and/or that there is a sense of mystery.
The happy cute side or the underlying deep side...

but I remembered my personal meaning behind this one which developed a long time ago, but is something I need written down.
After developing the mirror stories, in sketches there was always going to be this play with the visual. But I think it wasn't until I listened the Sndtrk (brothers on a hotel bed) that the theme behind it solidified for me.
Essential bluboy is my lost innocence that I cherish so much, and in saying that with this strip combined with the song, it is actually the older grown up bluboy looking back at his younger self. Which I used to do when I was younger. I would try to imagine myself grown up.... and never really could envision that, and it almost scared me. And I could never see myself that way. Now that I am grown up, I look back with such love to my childhood that I imagine meeting myself as a young child, and what would I say or do but I know I would just freak myself out....
And as I look at myself in the mirror I almost start not recognising myself... So it scares me but it's still me. So I'm sad that I scare myself when as a child you are usually more accepting of people.... Hope that makes sense?

Yeah that does, and I totally understand that. Had a conversation today about a similar thing. It's strange when you look back on yourself and I can imagine why it scares you.

I'm kind of in the middle, so I get it both ways

He heh, really great to hear that!! Don't know if I should try to explain it then.... so I won't.

Cause actually, I probably couldn't... But I could, in a number of different ways. I guess that's just how my mind works, without me realising it. Also it might be why I titled it "mixed feelings". You'll also notice I couldn't even keep the title the same from Dev title to my Comment title!? Well, infact it was because of lack of characters for the Dev title so I had to simplify it....

I try to keep a mystery behind my comics, and like things that keep you thinking. Or the more you look at something the more you see or hear. Like a song. listening to a song at one time you get something different out of it compared to say years later you hear a new meaning or it speaks something different to you.
Or this is simply cause I'm not the best writer... really I'm not. Which might a good thing or a bad thing?? So I'm simply confusing you/the reader? :hmm:

Now my head is spinning, getting dizzy.... think I should get to bed... ^_^

Really good way to show her art ^^
And the mirror is always true, even when we see ourselves in different ways.
