COMM- No Need to Hide by Verve-Soliloquy COMM- No Need to Hide by Verve-Soliloquy
Whew! Done! This was a commission for the lovely :icondethhkat:, featuring a sort of scene from her stories "Out of Darkness" and "Staring at the Sun." Staring is a sequel to Darkness, and I highly suggest you read them both!!

I won't spoil the entire plot for you, but suffice it to say Charles is having a problem. With a lot of things. And, oddly enough, Nathan is the only one that can grasp the gravity of what's going on. It angers him and depresses him all at the same time. And Charles...well...coping is something that comes naturally to the man, but this time, it's a bit of an uphill battle.

This was so much fun to work on. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Enjoy!

-Sam

I love this! Did you take an art class or something, or are you just self-taught?

Hey, thank you! Well, it's a long story, so I'll keep it as short as possible. Self-taught, externally cultivated. I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon. It started as the standard little kid drawings. I would color in coloring books with my grandma and draw originals with my dad. He taught me a lot of skills early on, like perspective drawing and architectural drawing. From then on, I devoured books and tutorials on how to draw, and just did so all the time. I got lucky with access to an awesome art class in elementary school- best of its kind in the area. Moved on to a sort of art-oriented museum-partnership school that was supposed to have a very strong art program- what a joke. All the art was extracurricular and was not even teaching anything. It was basically a babysitting service. I continued to refine on my own, until high school, when I attended a vocational school for Graphic Communications, and once again, had access to a brilliant art class. The rest, especially drawing people in both realistic and cartoon styles- was taught by myself to myself, and by one of my best friends. So- it's a lot of both! And I never stop practicing!

The tiny details are amazing.  I look at it all the time... it's just stunning and heartbreaking at the same time... but with a glimmer of hope... :)

P.S.  "No Need To Hide"... the title kind of gives me chills!  The essence of how Nathan feels about Charles and what he's going through...  (summed up wonderfully in the image too, of course!)

Sam, once again, I LOVE everything about this!!  (And the title you gave it- wow, perfect!!)  I meant to comment on the lamp light before too... very beautiful!  The whole thing is just hauntingly... perfect!  
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much again!!!   

And thanks so much to those who have read the stories!  :D

Busy! It's midterms week (finals week for my accelerated classes), and its Wednesday, and I haven't even started any of it! But I'll get it done. :) Especially my accounting homework. It's like a little slice of heaven every time I crack the book open!

I know what midterms are XD, I'm taking them myself atm.
Sorry.
No, hope it goes well and you ace them all (you're so smart and all, you have to). 
No frat parties? No?
Sounds like a plausible college.
Frat parties are gross.

Lol. Good luck! And ha, I probably would have passed my accelerated mathematics final...if the final had actually revolved around what we did in class. As it stands, I won't know my actual grade for a couple days, but I'm fairly certain it will be the lowest grade I have ever gotten. I'm not the only one in that boat, though- I know that the entire class struggled with it. If we all struggled and we all failed, it may have been the exam, not us. Hopefully it will be weighted accordingly. Fingers crossed!

Lol, frat parties. Blech. Those certainly aren't my cup of tea- not to mention, it's a community college. There's one group fraternity and one group sorority, and I don't have the time to get tangled up in all that nonsense. The nice thing about starting off at a two-year college is being able to avoid all that nonsense. Everyone there is there to study hard and work harder, because it directly prepares us for the next step in life- so why waste the opportunity? I'm more concerned about my transfer years to a four-year college. I'll hopefully be dorming at that point, and I'm just worried I won't take to the standard life of a college student very well. But I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Hope the transfer works out for you :)
The realization that I've got two years left in High school is somewhat intimidating.... I'll be in College or University in two years (hopefully) :squee:

Thank you! I hope so, too. Got my grade in that math course back...A- for the entire class. It's not an A, but I guess I can live with it.

Those two years are going to FLY by, trust me! It's crazy. Just be wary of what's called "senioritis." Always strive to do well, no matter how close to graduation you are!

Sweet! I love the detail, right down to the lamps and clock.  And Nathan is very understanding, even if he doesn't realize it or hates to show it.

Wow it's a really cool drawing! I love how you drew both of them, giving Charles that tired, sickish expression that we haven't really seen on his face before. He always tries to be strong for the sake of the band! Good job with the lighting as well. That's some more advanced colouring than they usually do in the cartoon.

Thank you!! The lighting was the best part. I finished the flat colors and was like...there's a lamp in here... and then I just stared at it until I couldn't take it anymore and had to go all out on it.

A little extra work really pays off, doesn't it! :) It's great that you take into consideration where the light comes from, it always helps when you're doing advanced shading.
