I’m in a creative mood tonight but I don’t have the material to do what I want. I would like to do several illustrations to make a short story like this one: But I don’t have inspiration ==” So I’m just gonna do a simple illustration… But it is REALLY frustrating! So if one of you have an idea, even a very short and very silly idea, please let me know :)
I have a theory about the Gorgon sisters which is that their mother was a greek witch borned around centurys before Jesus Christ. And I also think that she married three different men to have her daughters. The first she married was maybe a slavic man and not a Mediterranean (like roman or greek) because Arachne has really pale skin, blue eyes and black hairs which are criterias propers to romanians, russians or hungaryan people.
Some decades (maybe century(s)) later she meet Medusa’s father who was a nordic man maybe swedish, russian or icelandic (and leave him for various reasons involving that Medusa and Arachne weren’t raised together which explains that they weren’t close). So medusa was born blond with a pale skin, in a medieval environnement constantly evolving/growing and I also like to think that she was something like a person of nobility who has a big access to a lot of books. I think that her capacity to escape every dangerous situation and her power of tickery grew in her personality because of a cruel royal court, like King Lading in GOT with magic influence like the elven court in Hellboy 2. So she used to learn fast to be intellegent to survive and betray people before they could betray her. So she grew up in a very intellectual and oppressive environment early in childhood. I’m sure she was at least like Baelish… I’m not saying she could’ve be this evil person without living this sort of childhood, but I’m sure it helped A LOT.
Sooooo~ this is a huge mindfuck about this character but don’t be cruel, it came to my mind while I was drawing so it is not really conrete. And sometimes I’m really bored when I do my craps! But you know, I know how to keep it in my mind and I don’t do a shitty fanfiction “just because MYY theory is just ssssuw awesome!!!” (damn crappy fanfictions writters)
Sooo… This is why there is no update recently. Well you know what? I had a big depression in 2013 and I always though about suicide because I wanted to be an artist and go to an art school but my parents constantly belittled me because of this. But I discovered Ava’s Demon and my life suddently became so full of light and joy because you are so talented and so creative with your story. I liked the coulours, the story which was original, the characters instantly.
Now I’m feel much better and I would like to create my own story, like you. You are my favorite artist EVER and my first inspiration. Your art is NOT and will NEVER EVER be a useless garbage. For the money, I think a lot of your fans are, like me, young people with no money. I feel really sad about this but you have to know that I am french and if one day, I have the occasion to buy your comic in a store, I WILL DO IT!! Or if you make people pay to access, I will propably do it and I don’t think I am the only one I can hardly understand how you feel because I don’t know your life or your problems but I can imagine that you work hard on your comic and I admire you for this.
I really hope you’ll feel better, you look like to be upset with trolls or haters. Some people, I think, are jealous and couldn’t accept that you are more talented than them and, instead of push you to accomplish your dreams, try to break it to make you feel bad. Honnestly, I think there is more fans than haters, even my friends who don’t relly likes comics read Ava’s Demon every weeks!
Anyway, long story short, take care of you! I really mean it! :3
