My way of dealing with art crisis is pretty much just drawing whatever the fuck comes into mind first until I’m done hating myself. It works.
I’ll be honest, I have fun torturing Roteye by trying to figure out how he’d look like in different AUs. We were watching Ghibli films lately, so of course the “but what if a fantasy-something set in Japan?” question came up.
Many stupid jokes later it was decided he’d be a weird-looking old-ass Oni. Samurai Oni? Why the fuck not, I don’t care.
