Miroku and Bluuuue. owo
I'm going to talk a LOT here, I'm sorry. X'D

Okay, so like, Miroku, he's my baby. I've had him for years and year, far longer then I've had Blue.
He's my oldest character I have, at close to 9 years old. There's actually a long story there about how for maybe a year 1/2 I wouldn't concider him a character, but I'll explain that later in an "Ask Blue", since someone asked about my oldest character.

But yeah, he's gone thru many changes, many personality shifts, many back stories, had a mate and kids at one point, he's just, he's gone thru a bunch in my years of drawing.

I would say he's the character that means more to me then any other character I own. By a long shot. Not /as/ much as Blue, but very-very close.

For a time, before I made up a fursona, (and before I even knew what a fursona was), he was basically like my fursona. Even after I made Blue, I still mainly used Miroku to express how I felt for quite a while, till Blue grew on me. When I was sad, happy, excited, whatever, I drew Miroku.

And once I became comfterable using Blue as more like a fursona, Miroku was a character that I would still always draw. And I would draw him with Blue quite often to comfort her and myself, when I was feeling down.

And then one day, I slowly started to dislike Miroku. I had him forever, I constantly drew him, and then one day, I moved on. I began to love my other characters more, and slowly Miroku was left in the dirt. And I tried so hard to love him again, but I couldn't. That's when he got the design he has today, (not the brown one), and I decided that everything he had done before that was just gone. I deleted his siblings, his kids, everything, I started over. I didn't even want to look at him anymore with his old design, so I changed him, just so I could stand looking at him. And it always made me sad how I could no longer stand him. You know, like when you over listen to a song you love, and then you can't stand it anymore? That's how it went.

He's never again became a favorite of my characters, but even today, I still love him so much, because of what he used to mean to me.

Infact, the reason he's still around today is probably mostly in thanks to Vindicated. I would have never gotten rid of him as a character, but I'm sure I would have never really drawn him again.

Yes, he did start as a fan character of Inuyasha's Miroku. But he quickly developed his own character, and even though I kept saying he was a fan character when asked, he really wasn't to me. Over time it began to bug me when people would say he really wasn't my original character. Because he was mine. He ment so much to me. Even after he wasn't my favorite character anymore, he always ment so much to me that of corse I concidered him mine, and not just some rip off an anime character. Okay, so my favorite anime character in existance, but still, my Miroku, and the anime character Miroku were different beings to me.



Dear lord, look at that wall of text over some lines and color I call a character!
I'm a lonely tard, I know.
ldjfskl I could go on forever about this stupid, purple fatty, but I shall stop now. ;;
Any-hoo, sorry about anatomy or anything like that, this was drawn pretty quick inbetween working on commissions.

Same with me. I had one character, Rex, ever since I was 4-5 years old. I'm 14 now.
How I made him up, was that I always liked to act like a dog when I was little. So then I guess I just got tired of acting everything out, and decided to create a character that would do those things for me in my imagination. So then Rex was born. He has a human face, that blended in very nicely with a white dog body. Sounds weird, I know XD but if you were to look at him the way I do in my imagination, you would understand that he's not weird looking at all :3
Except that I never stopped liking him, I just stopped imagining his adventures in my head with him. Ever since I was little, I made up his adventures. Now...I don't/ Rarely ever. My fursona took over, and now I'm imagining stuff with my fursona, RedPrint (Red) instead. Sometimes I force myself to imagine stuff with Rex and his friends, sometimes the stories just come to me. There are so many adventures/stories that I made up for the past 9-10 years, unfortunately, I can't remember them all.
I tried writing them down when I was younger, but even then it would be hard for me to remember every single story.



gahhhh this is so much to read XD
I really appreciate it if you had the patience to read all this >3

I'm keeping both designs.
Brown Miroku will almost always be used in animations.
And if I draw him with either Sar, or Riaka, he will be brown.

When he's drawn on his own, and not having anything to do with my show Vindicated, he will be purple.

The brown design was only make for Vindicated related matters, just so Miroku wouldn't stand out so bad with his purple-ness. XD

Miroku is a pretty cool OC to me. Whenever you draw him I just want to hug and cuddle him. I don't think I've had a character longer than my fursona, Rain, but I still know how you feel. The first OC (besides Rain) I had, Melody, I honestly love him to death, but he seems to be a bit old. I do want to change his design a bit, so he wouldn't be a blue blob of twig-sized coyote. But still. I love him. I love him the way he is, but I hate him the way he is.
He's my little homicidal maniac of a coyote, and I love him.

I think I'll have to draw the two together. Old designs. <3

My first character ever was Shylina. :heart: Her story is so different now. When I first made her she was a scientists with her hair up in this really neat bun and never took her hair down, white-rimmed glasses. . . Also lots of unnamed, barely-remembered designs that I have never actually considered characters she worked with in her lab up on a hill in the middle of the woods. Her story didn't have any plot really, at first. Lots of random stuff that would happen, but she had two mechanical dragons, big one named Wolverine and small one named Lidvey.

That summer of her creation, I made Vadivra and Uptite. Everything began to change at it went from a peculiar sci-fi story slowly into a fantasy one. The scientist part stayed for a long time, though, even when the two dragons were forgotten. Although strange things like demon, soul-sucking coocoo clocks and the like could be found in her lab. . . . . She changed from this really nice, outgoing lady slowly into, well. . . more and more of a secluded, sarcastic loner. Eventually a bitch. For no real reason at the time, really.

Other characters began popping up as, for a while, I liked to involve Yu-Gi-Oh into my story--no dueling or anything. Ohnono, I thought turning them into vampires and werewolves and sticking them out in the woods with a bitch like Shylina (who's name wasn't Shylina at the time, in fact she didn't have one until a few years ago) was more fun. . . Although during that time, a lot of the pre-YGO characters disappeared because of my obsession with vampires and YGO at the time. As soon as the vampire faze ended, went through some other fazes that made me decided Shylina was immortal. Eventually, YGO was thrown out entirely and created her past. Labs, scientists, ect had nothing to do with it anymore. She went back to being sweet.

Lidvey was recreated as a human and Shylina grew up with him. Michael and Francia were created as well. Vadivra was reinstated, Tubico came to me (literally) in a dream, Great Guardians were created. Suddenly I had a reason for why she became so mean. As her story became more and more tragic, I continued to love her more and more. . .

Sometimes I get angry with how plain her design is or how messy her story is to me due to being created over the course of my childhood, but there isn't a single character that means more to me then her. I love her so much I wish she was real. . . and sometimes I get so angry and frustrated that she isn't. I think that's one of the things about being a creator/author/artist, though. . . to love our little creations so much it hurts.

I can see! Same for me, I've loved so many, but, I've lost so many due to not drawing them and forgetting designs, losing pictures, you know the deal. But, I don't think anyone can love a character as much as you love Miroku.
And I also dunno if you're leaving him purple, but I think you should, since he started out that way. :3

I know the feeling my friend, I've personally gone through a similar process with my own fursona who's original name was Wolf. I at one point rather recently began severely question everything about her, from her species to her coloring. I went through several different fully designed characters I thought would be my new fursona until I finally came full circle, redesigned Wolf, and renamed her Shenzi. Anyways, I've also had with several book characters of mine, but the thing I always think about my ideas and characters is one mantra I've made and I hope it will maybe help you in the future at some point. "If you need to let an idea go, then let it slip on through the cracks. If it never comes back, it was never meant to be. If it comes back better than before, then grab hold of it, and never let it fall again."

With love from rainy Washington,
Sam
