inner demon by nocturnalMoTH inner demon by nocturnalMoTH
in the graphic novel version of my "Spike" story, I had planned on Spike to have an inner demon, or "imaginary friend" of sorts. His name is Hatred and he's a shape shifter who changed shape into a Spike-looking creature. He's far more wicked than Spike is though. They have very different personalities, and Spike doesn't like having Hatred around at all. Hatred keeps telling him to do evil stuff, convincing him it's the right thing to do and encourages him whenever he's done a bad thing. His goal is to rid Spike of his conscience and be in complete control of him. Turning Spike into a killer.

and here's where I shut up or I'll spoil a lot of things in the story... XD

But I kind of like Hatred ackshully... :B dunno why though.

but he's fun to draw.. x]

And he's fun to write about. I've done a couple of chapters where Hatred speaks to Spike. I'm just not sure whether to include him in the story or not. I figure either he'll spice things up a bit, or he'd just make the story less believable. Though, Spike hearing voices would in fact be a realistic thing, in the way that he develops a mental disorder caused by trauma. That happens, you know..

...I wonder what Hatred's eyes look like :o (I've never drawn them). Judging by Spike's expression I'd say they're pretty terrifying.. :3

aw well..!

Hurr hurr
This is epic. XD
I really like the shading, and the dark gloomy colours, blood and expressions, just suit the scene well.
I love it!
great job!
